How could anyone one release a patch where to get it to run on UBI COM you have to start messing around in the REGEDIT..................Poor and shoddy, Sigh... see somethings never change, tell me u did at least beta test it on the servers it was intended to be played on..

I Dont Blame it on the game update, the sound is cool now,
but whoever did the connection part of it wants his *** kicking by the 3 legged horse which he no doubt modelled

They say this is an open Beta Patch.

Also, I assume the Patched version will (eventually) replace the FB 1.0 boxes in the store. Is this correct? If I must do a complete Windows re~install, I won't wish to download again.

no it wont normally all the ones for the original eventually were added to the last discs, but you get them all off line, can you back it up to a cd the zip file? then you will have it as a spare

Well I was thinking they may include The Patch on the paid addon plane CD. That would be cool.

it would, but is it going to be a paid one or a freebie?

No need to remove the game it is a PATCH. you have to have the game that you bought on your computer if you remove it and just load the patch you will not be flying, you wont even be getting the game up and running.
Also at least at this point, the addon plane CD is just a rumor, nothing has ever been said officially by them about there being a paid patch on CD, that came from the forums only.

I believe what the author is refering to is the fact that in order to run 1.1b on UBI game service you must tamper with your registy. And I must agree that this is rediculous. Gamers should not be required to tamper with there registy in order to play. UBI had weeks to prepare for this and should have patched the lobby by now but they havent. The fact that this is an open beta has nothing to do with being able to play it on UBI. Its pretty simple, UBI needs to patch the lobby and support the gamers who use it.


When you first join the FB lobby it even tells you that you need 1.1b to play here. So people go off and download it only to return and find out that they cant play because DOGFIGHT is not installed. So then the user must go into his or her registry and and change DFIGHT to DOGFIGHT. Sounds simple I know but some people are clueless when it comes to task like that and they should be required to do so.

You got it in one, Not everyone using UBI Com is Bill Gates and the fact that people are having to tamper with the Registry, with the problems that can cause for some of the players young and old shows the game wasn't tested online on its Most Important Server before being released and that is to put it bluntly unforgivable.


And before people start on saying Hyperlobby this and Hyperlobby that i will stand by me comment.
UBI Com is the Most Important Server as it is the Game Distributers and also their Showcase online to the gaming community, to Make a Total Mess of making sure that the released patch would function with it is like Ford Selling cars without the Ignition wired in.

That is reprehensible on their part and I hope words are being asked in the correct quarters as to why it happened.

Me i've cooled down a bit now after ending up having to do a total reinstall even though the uninstall I Ran to remove the game, did not remove the game folder or any of the Files, A BUG?

I wait with baited breath for the next Patch as this time i intend to email details of it to all the UK PC games magazines and recommend they check it out and see what happens, maybe a bit of adverse publicity will help it run smoothly.

It is an open beta as announced by the developers in the General Discussion forum! There are bound to be things wrong. Looks like you found one!

The community demanded the patch "now", and we got it as is.

the one good thing i would say in their defence is that , how many plane online at tops 1000? 2000? out of sales of ???????...........therefore the patches will tend to be made for a minority of the players as 99% of people owning the game may never of tried it online

UBIcom has nothing to do with Oleg Maddox or Maddox 1C

Check this thread on GD, it's a fix /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Why complain?
