ok so for those of us who DO NOT READ FRENCH could you please post a translation.
and please don't summerize.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>"Nous vous informons que les betas tests de Pacific Fighters sont désormais terminés depuis HIER SOIR et POURTANT !!!.
Tout ce qui suit n'a rien a voir avec l'arrªt des beta tests.
Le programme de beta test est officiellement terminé car le produit va dans les mois qui viennent passer en commercialisation.
Officiellement il n'est pas encore GOLD.

Je ne parlerai ici que de la communauté francophone...
Certaine personne distribuent actuellemet une beta sur le net par voie privée(faudra revoir la définition dans le dictionnaire) afin sans doute de se faire des amis ou d'ªtre le chef de la tribu ou de se garantir une pseudo-reconnaissance.

Le problªme est que la beta de PF sert de faire-valoir certaines personnes arrivistes qui d'ailleurs n'ont certainement mªme pas installé PF sur leur HDD.
la galette n'etant qu'une monnaie de tractation pour eux ou de pression(?)...

Qu'on se le dise les beta tests sont terminés... pourtant la distribution continue.
BRAVO mon gars... rien ne t'etouffe

Tout ce qu'on gagnera avec ces comportements lamentables est de ne plus avoir de beta tests externes dans l'avenir et de pleurer sur les multiples bugs...
Bien heureusement cette affaire n'ira jamais faire le debat des instances gouvernementales, ca reste un simple jeu tout de mªme ...

c'etait le coup de gueule du week-end
Fin de transmission !"<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

you better not use this online translator, because it messes things more than translate them.

We announced the end of the beta test of our team on PF, and we only talked for us. this does not imply other beta test teams or the dev team itself, or www.checksix.com (http://www.checksix.com).

As for the rest, it is better we do not translate it, because it is a personal message to some bad people making some bad things in those last days.

Thank you for your interest.

To summarize the end, they're talking about the beta having been leaked. A Guy has sent this version to over people to obtain something ??? They don't say what.
Sounds like a certain patch, we'll see...

Sounds like they need to revamp the beta team and get rid of the straglers.

Na.. dont care about any leaked (if it really happend) version, most people will buy it, few will rather copy it illegally, but they always did and will always do http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

And for leaked Betas: whoever is eager enough to go thru trouble for some Beta, that person must be starving for the final product (and will surely buy it) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'd actually be suprised if the beta for PF wasn't leaked. I've always been able to get any beta of IL2/FB/AEP I wanted with very little difficulty.

I'm not entirely sure as to what you mean by that but regardless the beta's have always been leaked since day one. I've wondered if it is in fact Oleg himself "leaking" them. If it wasn't him I would think they could have stopped the leaks after only 1 or 2 occurances. That or they just don't care if people get the beta's. In any case it usually isn't at all hard to find a beta patch for the IL2 series if you just ask for one.

Anyways back to the original topic. It generally takes 2 months after the game is ready before it actually gets released. I assume this is because they have to make the boxes, CD's and a 3 page mini manuel that tells you everything there is to know about flying http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif.

And who exactly do you ask for these betas? You find it easy to get these betas because they have allowed people into the beta team who have no business being there. Some who run off and pass on a new release candidate to thier squadmates or "Buds" online. I'm sure the majority of the beta testers work thier tales off and obide by thier NDAs, but the ones who are merely along for the ride and a first look need to be done away with.

btw Maj Death, that's called Piracy http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

As said before: face reality.
Some people will copy a pirated versions, wether legal or not. You can try to make it harder with a fancy copy-protection, but in the end you just pester the customer with a oversensible copy-protection (not running with some drives, CD scratches, playing DJ when having multiple games installed, etc).
And the illegal copies? Some cracker will remove the copyprotection and then the pirating player will have no CD-hassle and therefore an even better solution than the honest buyer. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif
Man, even as a player who actually buys all the games he plays, I remove the stupid copyprotection ASAP (whenever possible, hate StarForce).

Leaked Beta: As long as somebody with a pirated versions buys the original game when it comes out, where is the harm? Or do you accuse Maj.D. of not buying the original game? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Disclaimer:
I do not support "pirates" (it is bad, in the end it even falls back on me (as honest customer)), but personally I dislike that exaggerated whining about pirates. Check out the charts, Doom III was for weeks the #1 in UK-charts, despite the fact that it was out in the net at least a week before it was out in the stores.

And since IL2-FB-PF is more for the grown-ups, and since we are all responsible customers, we go out and buy the game .. *cough* sim http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It is an online translation.

http://www.freetranslation.com/

The Alfa release was leaked/ put out/ obtained/ whatever and it seems the post I put up about it in ORR is removed.
The last post was the surmisation that beta testers leaking a patch/ pre release/ beta cast a pall over all beta testers.

I seriously doubt it is out of beta. I mean look at what we have seen so far in development updates...not much. One would think that if it was out of beta and ready for "gold" status that the dev. updates would be a little more complete, and not just screenshots of (mostly) single aircraft.

You guys know what a disinformation campaign is?

Umm, by beta's I meant beta's of patches which are free anyways. So no it isn't really stealing since they'd give it to us eventually. While most of the leaked beta's are readily availible to me, I don't generally get them. They are often more trouble than they are worth. I was simply commenting that 1C:Maddox has crappy security and you can get just about any beta you want if you ask around a little. Which also leads me to suspect that they maybe officially "leaked" so they get more input before posting a final version of the patch. Other companies have done this in the past so it isn't exactly unheard of.

i was wonderring, would it be a good idea if those going to buy PF for certain could pay upfront, then receive betas to test, just so we can get a go of the goodies in development http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif and maybe give helpful feedback too. If the software for some reason is abandoned before release then folks would get their money back. I think i would buy into that. so long as there was a limit on how long you would wait for the release.

Maj_Death
09-24-2004, 08:08 PM
Actually that isn't a bad idea but that could also pose some problems. First of all it would have to be downloadable which means all piracy controls would cease to exist and so it would be very easy for it to be pirated. The second problem is what do the people who buy it as a beta get once it is officially released? They suck up a bunch of bandwidth downloading the beta's so sending them the full game in a retail box doesn't make much sense. Maybe a CD and manuel only in your standard brown box would help compensate for the cost of bandwidth. Piracy is the biggest concern though, there would have to be something that would cause the beta version to not be upgradable to the full release version so that even if the beta gets uber pirated it doesn't have a large effect on the retail sale.
