God I'm glad Maddox is bringing out a new expansion pack.
I can't fly anything else, I bought MS's Combat flight sim 3 for $45.00 and had to chuck it after 5 mins.

I hope to god Oleg and team plans alot more games in the future.The attention to detail is incredible. Every time I fly this sim i feel like i'm really there!

Oleg, any chance of flying the B-17, ju-88,or the addition of the Lancaster "Dam Buster"? I don't think it would change my view of the game it would just be nice...Maybe too much to ask 8)
Anyway Thanx for such a great game!!!

Welcome SharpEnd. FB is definitely miles ahead of all other sims and I'm sure you will be even more impressed the deeper you get into the game.

As for the Lancaster I don't think anyone is modelling it, flyable or non-flyable.

As for the B-17 it is obviously non-flyable, but I doubt it will be flyable. The idea was thrown around a few times by the modelling community but I haven't seen anything definitive.

As for the Ju-88 it will be flyable with several variants I believe. I saw one version in the works where it had 12 machine guns or something like that. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif I believe Jippo is doing the modelling and Hammerd (the best in the business) is doing the skinning.

Thats fantastic! I love flying the He-111 its fun in IFR conditions. Can't wait for the ju-88.

Oh by the way.. I installed the 1.21 patch and added the RC-01 and RC-02 and my game won't start... the CD-Rom runs but the game can't seem to kick in... any thoughts?

Thanx gents

The Patches you mention are test Patches, and stop working after Dec 1. You can change you computer's date before then.

*Better is to download the new 1.21 Patch, its the final and its better. And it should work for all time.

Tip, wipe FB of your computer. Reinstall the original FB and copy it to a folder you will play from. Download full 120MB 1.21 Patch and use it on the FB. That way next Patch you will have the original on computer already. Keep a seperate folder for skins and copy them to the FB folder too.

What Lexx said. Remove FB, defrag your drive, reinstall FB, apply 1.21 patch. I back-up my skins folder on a cd as it fills up fast. I keep another folder for other essential FB files like adjusted FFB files, swastika enabler, etc.

Enjoy.

Yep...this is a problem. Nobody else seems to get it right. So I think Oleg has a moral responsibility to continue to produce addons for FB for all eternity. Otherwise he will be responsible for thousands..perhaps millions of depression caused suicides. You wouldn't want to face your maker with that on your ledger would you Oleg?

Just re instal FB 1.21 patch over your installation of FB and it should run fine. you actually downloaded the beta patches that you didn't need after 1.21
