Perhaps if you noobs listened to what James is telling you and didnt go off on a tangent he is indeed correct........ No one mentioned it being a game from Maddox or indeed Oleg, its the long awaited BOB2 from as the descriptions says, Shockwave

so If I would do a hell of a lot of ****ty posts with pure **** and get to 1500 post that makes me a experienced and good guy with allot of right things to say? just because a guy is short on posts doesnt mean he arent right mate. However this time croc106 was wrong... but in normal cases, just because a guy have plenty of posts doenst mean hes smart, I know a guy on http://www.steelbeasts.com that has reached 2500 post just by adding smart comments and purs bull**** to the topics... so he has plenty of posts but are more noob then any other on that forum..

The point Mr 39, is that Mr 29 called Mr 770 a NOOB. This actually proved that Mr 29 is a genuine NOOB. Mr 1369 pointed this out to Mr 29 in his subtle way and Mr 11 made it even clearer in his more direct fashion by calling Mr 29 a D i c k h e a d. As Mr 39 is pointing out, the number of posts doesn't actually determine if you are NOOB or not but the contents of a post is quite revealing. That is what we usually use to judge the poster. I hope this was crystal clear Mr 39. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Croc, an apology from you to James is in order. You are way out of line. Not only is the man 100% not talking about Oleg Maddox' game Battle of Britain, and not only is he almost certainly correct that Shockwave's Battle of Britain II is being released this month, and not ONLY is the man a contributor to this simulation (and every other flight sim) in a way you will NEVER hope to duplicate through his paintings (JD doesn't like to mention it, but the guy's, um, actually famous for his art in real life for cryin out loud!)...but you're being a jack@ss to another member here for no reason other than to put him down.

James is well liked and respected here, and although I am sure he is not bothered by your childish comments, I for one would like to see you apologize to him for your unprovoked abuse

Had the original BoB from Shockwave, quite 'ok' for it's time, but full of bugs. That said, those Spits engines sounded great compared to the 'same old same kind' as IL2.

I'll be buying it!

Well, I downloaded a demo video and it reminded of an RTS game along the lines of Sudden Strike. Not what I was looking for at all.
The only thing I will say in it's favour is that it looks like it will run on a low-spec machine - I could reach and maintain the giddy heights of 30 fps is this is true.

I HAVE to buy this just to see if the Campaign is as good as it says, also it appears that so much is taken into the sim... campaign, AI, cockpits, atmosphere, weather.

Of course, what to do? Can I fly FB and BOBII together? I`d certainly miss being able to fly some of the other unique aircaft and theatres.

We`ll see when I get it.
