Someone posted that you are pretty upset regarding the 1.2Beta leak.

I guess if I were trying to do something nice and worhtwhile for the community and my wish was not to have this work known to the public until I felt the time was right, I might be a little upset also. Kind of spoils it when you want to surprise someone with something and they see it without your being finished. This has happened to me in real life as well.

Someone else posted how ashamed they were for trying the Beta. I have to admit I had the same reservations.

I will admit that, curiosity did get the best of my proper judgement and I obtained the Beta patch also. I even went as far as trying to start a server for this patch. I didn't get many joiners so I played on one of the other servers running the beta version.

I will say that everything your team has done surrounding this game is truly amazing and the forthcoming patch will be no exception.

I will not stoop this low in the future. My appologies as well. I have uninstalled and reinstalled my game to the previous version and will now wait patiently like I should have done for an official release.

I will say that what I have seen is very nice indeedhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Best Regards,

Popov

Yes, Good post. Thank you very much.


You are especially right, when I try to make the present with surprise element and when its leaked - it makes me very bad... I was dreaming to bring it well.

Ok, I already forgot it...

hi,
..just a idea..depends on the serious willpower of all involved to test..betas and addons..
..three steps to get more serious, optimize and confident cooperation...

1) A-test to small qualified team..recruit by the
developer+publisher

2) B-test to registered interest users

3) C-Test and fixes by developer team to create official
version

includes individual reports and user feedback in a spezial closed registered forum to every grabove pointed groupe..

anyway ..it's sad that some nice surprizes came out too early....

..last but not least ...it's allways a trustworthiness...
..that's life...

...just follow my wingman...

hi,

..one more fourth team ?

OK ..You can organize 1-5 and more teams..it's always a problem of confidentital trust...but I thought of more involving the users before official release.....

Sorry your surprise was ruined. But... It's really looking great!!!! And I'm sure I'll love it even more when the final release is done. Thank you for all your hard work on this. I'm looking forward to the paid add-on too.

Since this is the second time a patch has been leaked, you might want to consider putting a serial number into your beta patch downloads, or some other form of security measure. That way you could trace the leak if it ever occurred again. I'm sure someone on your team could code this as part of the download. And... the mere knowledge that it's in there might be enough to make someone think twice. Also... right now you don't really know if all you have is a leaky beta tester, you or one of your beta testers could have a security hole and a hacker.

Oleg, I can not tell a lie.I did DL the leaked beta too but I never installed it.I instead waited for the official one /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

It's refreshing to see Oleg posting in HIS ready room again. It's also refreshing to see him say he wanted to bring it to us as a present of sorts.

I did not DL the patch. I could toot my horn and say it was a moral issue, but the truth is I wanted to badly. I've always had very good luck and performance from IL2 and IL2:FB. I didn't want to screw it up. I'll wait...somewhat impatiently...but I'll wait.

Heck I've got my hands full trying to map, configure and get used to using my new controllers...geez, it's like trying to learn to walk again.

(switched from msff2 to CH Fighterstick, CH pro throttle, CH pro pedals as well as trying to setup a new flight chair!)

Thanks Oleg.

the solution is quiet simple, only distribute to testers who only have modem connection
mmm 3k/sec upload, will be here for a while /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I really wish people would simply keep their word in such matters. If you recieve the beta knowing that you shouldn't distribute it, that should be the end of it. I understand people being excited and wanted to see the next development but gentlemen keep their words.
