some have been said in other posts i just thought it might help to condense/organize them.

here's a lttle known one in RC01. when you taxi the B17, the wheels roll backwards. the auto level stabilizer doesn't work on some planes.

Putting together a bug list on a partial beta patch to a leaked beta patch does not seem productive right now. But please, continue if it eases your angst.

Besides it no use to report bugs if you only have half the public beta.

You need part 2 as well.

I've noticed that the B-17 propellers will sometimes stay in place even if the entire engine or wing they used to belong to have been blown off. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thanks for the permission to ease my angst, Willy. I feel much better now.

but if you don't note them now, how do you know if they've been fixed.

props still move when you feather them.

Because you are missing about 74mb from the public beta patch, so it's pretty difficult to make accurate bug reports with 74mb missing.

i do have them, how could i have gotten all the maps and planes.

mine was 74.4 mb and load screen says V 1.2 RC, besides, your straying from the topic.

If true you should contact ubi so they can get it on their ftp server - it sounds like you have rc_02 but not rc_01 which is another 15 mb

you have to know what's wrong before it can be fixed. if another version comes, you'll now know what to look for to see if it's been fixed. if it hasn't i guess that makes it bug.


is the B17 missing the radio mans gun? or was it not on the G model?

xTHRUDx, if you have both RC01 AND RC02 or even only RC02 then I have a question.

WHY THE HELL DIDN'T YOU SAY ANYTHING WHEN THERE WERE AT LEAST 10 THREADS ALL OVER THIS BOARD ASKING WHO HAS THE RC02 PATCH?

Not to mention a post from a Ubi employee about it as well.

all i said is that my load screen says V 1.2 RC and mine works except the above mentioned stuff.

I'm sure he doesn't have the RC2 either. He just downloaded the leaked version, copied the RC1-files over and thinks he got the full beta-patch.

Sorry, but this won't work and as it was allready said: Infact patching the leaked beta with the RC1 causes some trouble, like crashing the game, when the Zero-Pilot get's shot, problems with the P51-loadout, etc. You should read more, since the listed bugs clearly result from the leaked beta, not the official release /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Man, this xTHRUDx person is pretty dense.

And according to Oleg the Hurricane MKIIb used by the Russians never carried bombs during it's combat opperations so therefore they are not available as a loadout option.

regardless of version, if there are problems they need to be pointed out. once they are pointed out you will then know if they have been fixed or not. if another version comes out, you will then have a list of things to check to see if they've been fixed.

hey TB, care to post the link that failed on you?

For the last time xTHRUDx, you have HALF a version, or better said a 20% version of the PUBLIC Beta patch.

The PUBLIC Beta comes in TWO PARTS and you only have ONE PART of that patch and the other part you have is the LEAKED BETA.
On top of that you only have the SMALLEST part of the PUBLIC Beta.

Therefore reporting BUGS about the PUBLIC Beta patch is not going to work since you DON'T have the PUBLIC Beta patch installed.

Plane load outs are plane related, not map related.

Thrud is reminding me of RBJ.
Anyway - NO - bug reports on a bastardized hybrid of the leaked beta and the current beta obviously are without merit- this is quite simply because this combination of versions introduces not only the bugs of the leaked beta - but combination bugs that result from the incompatibility of the two versions - consequently this thread is a WASTE OF SPACE

Cap, so we will not be able to make accurate scenarios using the normandy map? it just seems that since we have a western front map we'd be able to have some western front planes with their western front loadouts. perhaps you think the Oleg's team hasn't put any forethought in to that.

Thud, or Thrud or whatever.

You're posting observations on an iteration of the game that was never meant to exist.

It's like you have Word 2000 and Excel 98 and you're trying to post bugs on Microsoft Office.

You have:

1.2 Leaked

And

50% of the Release Candidate installed


Since you were never supposed to have the Leaked version, try going from 1.11 to RC 1.2 with just the one file.

Good luck to you.

.... don't you get it?


This is why the RC_02-Patch has even 2 different sound.dll's so you can choose your updated version, according to best quality for your system.

So posting bugs for the leaked and patched 1.2beta is like posting bugs from original IL2 here. There is absolutely no way you can tell it's really a bug for IL2FB 1.2, cause you simply don't have the complete patch, that get's rid of these bugs.

(Besides all you wannabe-beta-testers have posted the exact problems, that Oleg and some other officials allready listed for the leaked patch during the last days......)

THRUD you remind me of a piece of blackjack oak, about the only usefull thing you can do with it is burn it.


Plain and simple you DO NOT HAVE THE FULL PUBLIC RC PATCH, NOONE DOES! you have the leaked 1.2 beta with a fraction of the RC patch overlayed on it, that is why its saying 1.2RC. Reporting bugs is pointless because these 'bugs' are most likely being caused by your jury rig of a patch.

Hi,

The wheel problem is not confined to B17s. I seem to recall seeing the same thing on the movie 'Red Stars Over Berlin' happening to a Pe-8. Check the sequence where they are taxiing for take off.

It would be interesting to see if the 1.2beta was used in the making of that film.

Cheers,
Norris

thanks for the posts guys, we'll no what to look for as more stuff comes out.

as for the b17 wheels rolling backwards. i was taxiing the plane around the field when i noticed it. tough to land, it stalls around 150. you have to fly it into the runway. i wish more extinguishers where modeled on more of the planes instead of just the TB3

If the B-17 ever becomes flyable, I'm sure they'll model the extinguishers. He-111 didn't have extinguishers on the engine.

If I was making games I would not model stupid things that are not normal, like paratroopers jumping out of a plane that is still on the ground.

You seriously did not expect them to fall out of the plane and do the "eat concrete" thing or did you?

Yes, I have seen them use it plenty of times.

I agreed with you. I wonder how good beta testers are, I guess they only care is "I am first". So We prefer have beta testers who strong believe in is make sure no bugs and no problem in playing.
