I actually paid for 2 Pe-2´s.
My wife is the one that have a VISA card and she didn´t know how to pay with it :=(

Then I bought it via a bank transfer, but I tought that I did something wrong, so I asked a friend (with a VISA card) if he could pay for me, and he did.

I got my first Pe-2 instantly when my friend payd with his VISA card only to find that I also got the Pe-2 paid via bank transfer :=)

Am I stupid ?? well maybe !!
Is the Pe-2 worth it ?? well to a certain degree (I don´t think it will become my faverit aircraft)!!

But I´m happy to support Oleg and his team, thinking on all those free "patches" (say addons) we have got through the last years ever since the first Il-2 version hit the stores.

Thank You Oleg for a great simulation..

Count me in for one copy.
This boonty stuff was fun (but get rid of it, quick), it was a kind of challenge to install the add-on on a second offline computer (with registry to edit). Thanks to Luthier and the gang, by the way. Funny to see all this community shaken & well alive (I was just wondering myself how many women may be involved here ...). Great feeling to take off with new Pe's ! I can't wait 'till next week to see next generation in E3 spotlights; little Bob is coming ... (but his IL dad is still strong, after 5 years - which is equivalent to half eternity in the game history). We know the real dad, but, by the way, who's the mother? Thanks to her, wherever she is.

Not sure.

If it becomes available on CD and I can order said CD at a reasonable price, then yes.

Alternately, if I ever get out of living in a shed far from civilisation and can afford to get broadband, then yes.

That's a couple of big ifs...

Didn't get it. I have the luxury of being a strictly offline player so there was no pressure (just not interested in the offered planeset and no AI or FM changes). If, and when, the powers that be decide to consolidate these add-ons into a single DVD maybe then I will part with my cash.

As long as there are good servers useing the FB+AER+PF ill stick with that. or if i can buy it on disk then id be willing to buy it not because i want it but just so i can keep laying online. pluse 1c has given us a good bit in free add-ons i would not feel bad about buying it dispite not wanting anything on it.

I haven't bought it yet. I'm hoping to see it on in either a de-Boontyed version, or better yet, on a CD. Hey, gimme all three planned expansions with the current update patches, and I'll go as high as $50 USD-the extra security and convenience is worth that much more to me...

Failing that, I may just wait and see if the next two updates are distributed in the same manner, download and install them in one fell swoop, and then de-Boonty just the once.

I would also gladly pay more $50 or even more for a CD copy with all updates without bounty and that does not require a win XP (no friend of mine that tried managed to make it work on win2k, and PF box says it works on Win2K.. so no chance on accepting that kind of issue).

If you get a bank account with debit card of any major brand, it will work. Mine did.
PNC Bank often offers free checking, no monthly charge.

No they don´t accept debt card, at least not the type I have here (visa debt), even the numbering systemis different. Most systems don´t accept debt cards from 3rd world countries.

On my eyes.. that has been the most LAZY release ever. LAzy on distribution method, on slecting and testing the download mechanism. On not providing local UBI representatives on other continets with local saling capability.

I have a PNC Bank Debit Card with VISA stamp. When I shop and use the card, it is VISA.
It is also not a credit card.
It is how I bought Pe-2, I clicked the VISA icon and fed in all the big raised numbers
straight with no spaces or dashes then the routing is on the back, last 3 digits in small
flat print that will not be imprinted on carbons. Last is expire month and year.

Real life gets in the way sometimes, young family & work and more work. Come back to the forums and find all hell has broken out.

Having read lots of multiple threads A little confused as to how to get the new add-on. Don't do plastic, by choice (mates still think I barter with sheep) Sending a cheque off and getting instructions for a dodgy download with a problematic install with potential spy ware doesn't appeal either. A little disappointed to exclude myself from the latest Oleg & co creation, but I am going go hang fire for a little longer until the dust has settled some more, and hope a cleaner install will be provided. Would prefer to pay hard cash over the counter for a CD/DVD, but that€s just my personal preference......

I paid for it the first day, but waited until today to download and install after first copying my complete 4.04 install to desktop. From the time I started to up and running was about two and a half hours. I hope the stupid S.O.B. at Ubi that came up with this idea gets his butt fired. There is reason to make this as complicated, time consuming, and aggravating as it is. And then you still don't have a clean install because of the Bootystinks.

I've got it running now, and am patiently awaiting the next up-date. The next up-date is the ONLY reason I even went through all this. If they don't come up with a better way to patch up next time, I just may not buy.

I made the following post in reply to the '46 What-If add-on' thread. The last part is relevant to this thread so I thought I'd repeat it here:


Posted Sat May 06 2006 23:56

"It ('46 add-on) certainly wouldn't interest me.

I want to fly this series strictly as 'WW2 historical', using only those aircraft types that saw active service IRL, in worthwhile numbers.

No '46 what-ifs' for this boy!

But nothing against those who do want a '46 add-on. AFAIAC, they are most welcome to it as long as it doesn't interfere with the stuff I like!

On the other hand, if somebody was to produce add-ons with some of the historical serving types that are as yet still 'missing', they would find me a much more eager customer.

[No, I haven't bought the Pe-2 add-on yet but I'm definitely going to, as this is one of my fave planes. I'm just sitting on the fence for a while to see what happens!]"

Boonty maybe did not mirror and then piles of orders come in while they are also doing
distro on those other UBI titles. If they overloaded then bitrates would slow way down,
you get 1 packet out of every <number of other users> from Boonty, only question is what
their bitrate is?

If they mirrored the file and sold the key then they'd get the same protection as now
for a LOT less hassle. Have the user need the key to upgrade while logged in and send
the next key via email, pirated versions won't upgrade directly.

Not sure if this would work, but...

Why not make a fake install on the laptop consisting of just the FB exe (or whatever file boonty looks for) in the default location. Then it would install and you could simply grab the files you need. Burn 'em and uninstall everything.

Wife has clean laptop and you have 4.05.

Might work?

The issue is that the very fisrt VISA debit cards were invented here! And they used a different id system. In most of the world they have the wise idea of using same ID system as credit cards. But we kept the different system. So our debt cards are completely non usable to buy anything outside our country.

If BB doesn't find FB then the d/l still happens and the files end up in a new folder inside
the BB folder. That is what you must copy to use on your PC. Many fixes are just to handle
that mess and install to the real game folder.

Check on the problems thread(s).

I haven't bought it yet. I think I might, but I just haven't bothered thus far. I haven't had as much time to play lately and I am still working my way through some campaigns, so I don't need the distraction of an add-on at the moment.

That being said, if it were available in a box in a retail store, I would probably own it already.
