well heres a new one to start a buzz here...

IF the FB game has so many glitches and errors. And the fact that the stutter and freezes here make this game frustrating to the point of deleltion from ones harddrive some nights. How will LOMAC fair when your closing at combined speed ov over 2400mph headon and each of you fire a Radar missle capable of Mach 3 to 4 and then you both drop chaff and flares and all the time your ECM is on and then the usual programing bugs start to appear? Warps, pauses, screen freezes.

I figure theres gonna be a lots of peed off people in Aces 2 and K-36 ejection seats hanging in the air after the game unfreezes..Oh boy won't that be fun to play. The graphics are gorgeous, but we will see about games playability online...Your thoughts?

Yeah, but the forward view will be better than the Fw190.

I have checked out the LOMAC forums to discuss that game before.

I might pick it up sometime after the first patch is released.

Online play? Its' gonna suck whether you are playing on a 56k, or a T1LAN. The whole concept of online dogfighting is dead in that game. That game is purely for people with $3000 computers and alot of time to kill trying to justify it.

Runs fine on my less than $1000 computer.

So when was the last time you actually flew Lock On?

I thought so.

I may decide to buy it off ebay after its released, i bet alot of people will get discouraged with lomacs pauses and studders on high end and top of the line systems.

Even Fb had over 100 people selling the game brandnew for $10 and under now theres only about 15 people selling it on ebay.


Even Battlefield command seems to suffer from the problems also so its something in this new engine they are using which isnt optimized to its fullest but hopefully will be soon

ubis lock on modern jet sim, it looks excellent and will most likely be the best jet sim out, but like the fb engine it has some probs which will hopefully be fixed by its release but who knows, they say they cant fix muzzle flashes in fb because of the game engine oleg said.

Keep in mind the engine is not FB's, it's a version of Flanker 2's.

AND flanker2 has the most solid net code i have ever seen in a sim, the game sometimes gives you an error that you have to reboot the machine to get the game started again, but when you are in multiplayer, even with high pings the game runs amazingly smooth, no stutters, and in 3 years i have been playing that sim, Im yet to see a UFO or another player's plane acting funny in any way, even with a lot of pilots at ones, the net code is rock solid.

hopefully lomac will keep that kind of solidness,
what im worried about is the new graphics, the water in FB in perfect setting makes even the latest PCs come down to their knees. If when i run lomac with those pretty graphics and the sim runs smooth, then ill be sure that the coders for FB missed something somewhere.

Hmm, what are you guys on? How could you know if LOMAC's engine stutters? Have you played it? I don't think so, it isn't the same developer as FB and it uses a completely different engine. A few videos had some dropped frames due to compression if that's what you're talking about, but it's been assured that it was only due to the compression and codec used for the video.

You should be able to pick up Flanker 2.5 in a bargin bin somewhere. (2.5 also lets you fly the Mig 29K). If you get 2.0, 2.5 is a free upgrade.

LOMAC should be a good product. I've been playing flanker games since Flanker 1.0, and the flight dynamics have always been fantastic. Flanker 2.0 and 2.5 were good, but felt a bit incomplete. Hopefully for LOMAC, it will have been in development for long enough not to have that problem.

I think FB will be fine too. Just be patient. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

08-08-2003, 08:42 AM
Yes, I´m also sure that LOMAC will run fine, as its graphics engine has nothing to do with FB one...Flanker 2.51 is already an old sim, but its graphics still are superb...I´m really looking forward to see this beautiful water in Lomac...

Is FB really that bad for ya? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif One morning I read a post about how great FB is and that it took flightsims to a new high.
Next day I get to read a post like this.
I don't get it. My FB runs great and with the new improved sound a netcode it will be near perfect.


And Buzz, thought u were a WW2-dude.
