Might want to be careful around here asking about CFS3 but this should help you.

Well, heres a totally crazy idea...I typed in "1.3 patch combat flight sim and wow! I got about 65,000 hits...google should be your friend.
I did, one time, to the DNC website asking about where to vote for Bush however, so I feel your pain.

I'm a little embarrassed to say I tried (had) CFS 1 & 2 when they came out. I remember when I first saw the screen shots for CFS 3 I thought "wow, that looks really good...maybe CFS 3 will be good (for a change)".
LOL what a joke...

OK, we all know a la carte CFS3 sucks but, get real, here is what has been done with it:

So, if you still have the disks, load MAW.

It sold quite well though! I bet most of us have a secret copy somewhere, probably not on the hard drive unless with M.A.W. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

I think that most of us were amazed (initially) at what CFS3 was promised to be...and then not too terribly surprised to find out what it really was, another M$ letdown. I even went out and bought the Firepower addon a while later to see if that did anything for it. I still was not impressed.
I must say that when I did get the Firepower addon and went ahead and reinstalled CFS3 I felt really great about how good we have it with the Il2 series!

PS CFS3 even with the Firepower addon did have a very long tenure on my hard drive. Kind of like the stereotypical mother-in-law staying over at your house. You get rid of the unwelcome presence quickly.

As much as I respect Leitmotiv`s views, I am in accordance with Choctaw111 on this. MAW is no doubt good, but for me, stock CFS3 needs fixing first. I`ve allowed myself to be stung twice (the second time with FirePower, which is good, but doesn`t fix the glaring erros of the original). Twice is too much already.

How do you get stung on a freebie?!! They'll never fix CFS3. It's roadkill.

I came soooo close to digging CFS3 out of the freezer for a crack at MAW but then someone said "KoTS" and then "SoW BoB" and the urge passed.

Benn playing around with CFS3 & CFS2... CFS3 has a Korean War addon that is not bad and CFS2 has quite a few of the missing crates that are needed for IL-2 to be finished.

But all said and done... IL-2 is the way. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

A couple of screens from CFS2...

But MAW have made my copy of CFS3 useful,other than laying around and collecting dust.

Agree, MAW is not CFS3 at all. Took CFS3 off my machine once MAW was installed.

Its fashionable to knock CFS3 here but MAW is quite a step foward.

You might not want to give it a shot but many of the people in the 19,300+ views of the two MAW threads and the FSX one posted here at ubi over the past week have asked for and gotten DVD's of MAW.

I have not seen any b*t*h*s about how bad it is from them, only comments of how bad it must be from people who don't have it and don't really know.
