Uh, I think FB Gold comes with everything but PF. PF is then installed merged with it and with the patches installed you'll be up-to-date.

Make sure you install the patches in the correct order and that you use only the "m" versions as those are for the merged version of FB/AEP/PF.

BoB will not be compatable with any of the previous releases. It's some way away from release - get the gold pack and have some fun in the meantime...

BoB won't be. The program will be different, far advanced beyond the current version. It will stand on its own, but won't have all the aircraft available in FB/AEP/PF at first, so it will be some time before it will phase out PF.

Nope....BoB will be a totally new product. Its still somewhat off into the future...maybe a year or maybe a bit more. We're not sure. Its going to use a completely new engine...its not going to be mergable with anything but it itself will be the launching grounds for future products which will probably once again be somehow merged together. I think part of this process will likely be to make the merging more like a plugin so that dropping a new expansion pack in or out is easier than at present.

No doubt Oleg has a method and formula that he will use thanks to lessons learned on the current generation.

Buy the Platinum or whatever it is when it comes out so you can play online and get all that content. You will not likely regret it.

I'm looking at the Amazon.com page for Gold right now: $19.99 through the merchant J&R Music and Computer World. The linked vendor says that their copy is new; I believe that you'd be getting a good copy from a reputable merchant (Amazon is just the forum that lets vendors sell their wares; Amazon will contact J&R and then you'll get an e-mail of confirmation from J&R when they process your order). Shipping is going to cost you an extra $5.70 though. ($25.69 TTL)

I don't think J&R will sell out (they probably have several copies in stock) but if they do there is also a guy selling a used copy on half.com for $23.00 + $3.25 shipping. His copy doesn't have the manual but honestly the FB manual and PF manual are practically the same; also, the FB manual comes as a PDF file on Disc 2. Maybe Gold Pack didn't even include a printed manual; I have the two separate boxed games instead of Gold Pack so I don't know.

Amazon is reliable. I order lots of CD's and DVD's through them and get them in good order.
