I really like the NW Europe map in 'merged.' It's got nice scenery. That's enough reason for me to endorse 4.02. The FM changes seem minor compared to some of the past version changes in the IL-2 history ... you'll adapt.

Not even going to vote as it is for ALL who fly online no question......Of course install the patch. If it was just the sim that interested me not the company.....Hard telling what version I'd be flying.

The folks having these huge yawing problems...need to get better technique, stop being so ham-handed, or fix their equipment. I d/led the patch,a nd immediately hopped into the plane I saw the most complaints about- P-51D

I flew with full fuel. I can make any shot I want, stay behind an enemy, line up deflection shots, whatever

I see no more difficulty in lining up a shot in 4.02 than in 4.01. It's not exactly the same; I had to get used to what was happening, but I can keep the nose in check with co-ordinated rudder and stick movements, which is how you're supposed to be doing it anyway. You can't just kick the rudder, release, bank, and yank, and I didn't fly that way in 4.01, either


Sometimes I feel like folks aren't flying the same sim that I am

This 'yaw effect whine' is either all hype, or bad equipment, or poor technique. I certainly can't be the best virtual pilot ever and I have no issues. These folks need to calibrate or repair their equipment and then practice in my opinion because there's no issues here and I'm not doing anything special

What can I say? Some folks are "great" online pilots and don't know how to land. These folks have to learn to adapt. It's not a big change in 4.02. there was a bigger change when we got 4.01. remember all the BS moaning about THAT? And now, folks are saying "I loved 4.01. why'd you change it Oleg". These folks didn't like it when it came out but now they are used to it, so 4.02 is "bad" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Install the patch and if needed re-adjust your controls. After that if anybody finds 402 unflyable comparing to 401 then we know he didn't even try 401... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
The things are not SO different, actually I find the difference marginal or if you like: "minor corrections and fixes"
BTW I have better feeling of speed when flying low, but maybe I'm seeing things http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

1st option. I always install new patches. About issues... if any, I deal with them later.

Well they are. Everyone is flying a slightly different sim. Between hardware configuration, game settings and even seating position every FM is slightly different for every player. The irritating part is when they refuse to accept that a few minor corrections on their part will address most perceived issues.

When this poll first posted. I voted "Don't Install" just to throw the poll off.

Shame on me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

The little time I've spent on 4.02, I think the differences are neglible enough to just keep on "flyin" and having fun. So, "Install the Patch" it is.

I've got an AMD Athlon though. WoooHooo!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Should I install it or not?


Copy your entire game folder to another location.

Patch the original install and create a new desktop icon for the copied version which will remain the old version.

After a month or two, uninstall/delete the one you don't like. If it's the new version, move the old version back to its original location.
