Please Mr. Madox or someone that has access to UBI tell them to change those ugly screenshots they have on the page that advertize the Platinum DVD:http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Those screens don't help the sales.
This is what I see in my regular online play:

The screnshots and videos sell games, at least this is how I see it. If I don't like the screenshots in the official site I don't even look at the rest of the site.
You can't show potential customers the beautiful and trilling flight model, but you can show the beauty of the game.

The aircraft carrier shot looks nice, but Hawgdog's shots of the B-17s at high altitude really show up how dated IL-2's graphics have become. Even perfect mode puts the horizon very near and highlights how odd the rivers are (too wide, too dark and too numerous). Lock On is much better higher up. The Rufe looks good, though.

Cheers,

RocketDog.

It's like this since il-2 came out.
Mostly no AA usage and bad jpg compression.

It's a simple thing that can be changed with little or no extra effort. The only downside is more bandwith usage.

This has been said many times.

There is a community ready to give them some really amazing pics (at least for the "old" aircrafts), and it could be also a nice competition for the costumers: "You could win a free DVD copy, posting an your pic for the DVD case" ecc. ecc.. It's really incredible their luck of interest for this sim. I've never seen a so poor marketing policy in a game.

BTW...we know....IL2 is not King Kong or Prince of Persia.
