I'm still playing the original and loving every minute of it. But it seems like there's not many games on GL unless I get on there early and catch some Euro servers. No complaints there, I like flying with anyone I can... but if I go on later at night, HL is a graveyard >8(

Maybe I should just cave and get FB >8\

I tried playing IL2 online, but I could not get it to crank out the framerates that FB does (never thought I'd say that, but its true).

Stick to IL2 until the patch for FB comes out. Right now I'd have to say the last version of Il2 is much better then the current version of FB.

Heh... yeah, I guess you guys are right. Besides, I feel like I'm missing out on some good dogfights with you guys!

Still fly IL2 and FB. Il2 has problem because of lack of dynamic campaign but some great 3rd party campaigns are available. So both will stay on my HD for some time.
But am looking forward to patch for FB and some add-ons, so keep working hard Oleg....

Very very Newbie IL-2 'er from the United States. Although I waste all my ammo in a dogfight just to damage my bogie its one of the best i've played.

Practice makes perfect

Dude, I have been using IL2 to suck more people into the game. I let them borrow IL2 for a week and then show them FB. I guess it's kinda evil, because I see withdraw and fiending all the time, but it's all part of the game eh? I want to be able to play online with folks locally, and this is my way of [trying] to achieve that. The only hard part is getting IL2 back. I have had to get rough a couple of times, but this sim is worth a little beat down no?

LOL Klauen.

FB is so much in the same vein as IL-2 that there was no point in making it an add-on. IL-2 "dies", okay, but FB is there.

I sort of miss IL-2, especially its P-39. I won't uninstall it. Still FB is so much more, and I hardly look back.
