I don't think Oleg's BOB will be out this year unless I missed something. However, there is another BOB game that will be coming out. Perhaps thats the one your talking about? At least I didn't see where Oleg said his BOB would come out in 2005.

I think it was originally supposed to be released in '05, but PF put a real crimp in their delivery schedule. However, it is by no means "vaporware". You just need to spend a little more time hanging around these boards. There's all kinds of information seeping through the cracks about BoB - some of it from the MAN himself. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

We've seen a sneak peek of the cockpit, we've seen development shots of the damage modeling and structural modeling of the Hurricane, Defiant, and others, and we've seen an example of the terrain generation system.

Thats some pretty good leaks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

All new from the ground up. With luck, we'll have it for Christmas 2006. And that's not a bad thing. Quality takes time.

Talk about jumping the gun...
With PF released what...3 months or so ago, you're expecting them to have a game built froma whole new engine completed and out the door?
Little early on the vaporware call.
Try Duke Nukem Forever

Is Maddox Games going to be at E3? Maybe we'll see a small sampling of BoB related screens/videos there. Just wishful thinking...

Only yesterday the developer himself was in this forum giving us tidbits about BOB, now it's vapourware? Sheeesh

The title was certainly well chosen! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I remember when this game was announced. Duke Nukem 3D was still in the shops and Quake II was still in development...

The funny thing is that it isn't still officially scrapped... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

BOB isn't vaporware at all. Maddox team is now working heavily in it, and after the release of FB/PF long-waited free add-on, they'll concentrate all their resources in it.

Hmmm, I wonder what happened to the BoB development screenshots we were shown last year. I just browsed the development section and couldn't find any, though I remember some ambulances, buildings, the airframes of the Emil, Hurri and an Italian bomber in the works.

Were they all censored????

Oh thanx. Glad someone snagged them before UBI removed them. I still wonder why though.

I'd speculate that it's cos there's competition out there? With a bob of their own due out "Feb 05" dunno really

Hi,

Hmmm. Duke Nukem. Possibly the best PC game in the world...ever.

"Wh..Wh..Who are you?"
"I'd Duke Nukem and I'm going to get the rest of you alien bastards!"

"No one steals our chicks and lives"

"Daaamn..Haven't got time to play with myself"

Cheers,
Norris

:-P hijack...

About Duke Nukem forever: They (3D Realms/Apogee) just (December last year) purchased a new license to an 'alternative' physics engine (alternative to Havoc), apparently for DN Forever. I'll believe it when I see it, as its their most famous running joke (Anyone remember a newspost on the 3D realms website last year where they said 'Duke Nukem Forever ported to Atari 2000'?).

But then, there was close to 7 years between Half Life and Half Life 2, and they only rarely got accused of Vapourware.

As for BoB, give the man a little time! Lol, IL2:FB isn't old, and PF is barely cooling on the shelves.
