In Eagles P-47 thread you wrote:

For the record, I play FB as it was out-of-the-box. I have a crummy dialup on ancient phone lines and online play isn't fun, it's frustrating because of the lag and I can't have much fun as a target drone. Also I haven't dl'd a single update or patch. BUT
I can say that from what I know of the P-47 the 'mush' feels right-on. I've never flown, say, a P-51 in FB. I have no reason to right now as I still enjoy the game as a sort of microcosm of war, where a certain type of high performance low and mid altitude plane was best. It's a little bit like why I liked WWI sims, but that's another story. But my point is: The P-47 and to a lesser extent the P-51 is not an easy a/c to get into FB and be effective. Just like an La-5 might have a tough time escorting B-17s to Regensburg from Debden then fighting a high altitude fight, the P-47 isn't as easy to integrate into a low level turn fight arena. When I get the add-on maybe that will be different as I assume that the updates and patches will ship with it. I guess we'll see.

PM me with an address and I will send you a CD with all the patches and then some.

Sometimes mailing CDs is just more effective than downloading. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
