Wow!Wow!Wow!

I am very impressed with the patch.
Here are my findings.

Jug kicks *** now-I always wanted to love this baby but kept stalling it.
Now, she flies beautiful. Great BnZ bird and packs a punch for mudmoving. Keep a light touch and she is sweeeeeeet.

P40-This thing can hold its own now. Awesome! Another new bird for me to play with.

I153 and I16.
I never played these before because the engines stalled so easily and you could not air start.
They still stall but not as badly and you CAN AIR START NOW!!!!! Yippee! I flew a couple of missions with each last night and they were awesome.
I even flew the 153 between the trees at 5 metres to avoid AAA.
Too cool!!!!

AAA is not as accurate. Still scary but not the snipers they were. Sound of flak will make you crap your pants now.

Head-ons passes can be done again without the sniper shots from AI.

My sound is muuuuuuch better.
Frames are better too.

Ground detail is muuuuuuch better as well. I can see the trees much better when flying low and fast.

Fire on the ground and when planes are burning looks much better now. Seems more detailed and real.

AI stalls when you get into a turn fight. That was too cool to watch the 109 I was chasing lose control and slip into a stall spin.

Bottom line, I am extremely pleased with the patch. The game was great to start with but now it is simply a pleasure. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

BTW my specs are: p4 1.6, 512 SDR Ram, Radeon 7500.

Ah the P-40! It handles like a dream. It's steady and heavy. It dives and zoom climbs beautifully! I love it!/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I made my settings based on Col. Flanders post a long time ago.

Give me a minute to find it.

Yeah the P-40 is sweet....since it is not as heavy as say the jug you can do hammerheads and vertical stalls much easier..if you have someone on your six and they follow you into the verticle you can turn and be on them before they realize it....its risky though...you could also be wiped as you slow down... The Jug is nice....Overall i am satisfied. I wish the flaming crater thjing waqs more random though....every plane that goes down now leaves a black smoke belching crater...it would be nice if some of them were just dust..... although i havent hjad the time to really check it out.....

Enjoy, Rhett.

Drop me a pm and let me know if you were as impressed with the changes in your settings as I was.
For a cheap card my Radeon 7500 is doing very well.
