A good read. Cool looking water.

Same old clouds. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif Fighter pilots spend more time looking at clouds then water.

P~38 cockpit looks Awsum!

OK! That does it!

I'm buying the Radeon 9800Pro NOW!

I had to pick my jaw up from the table when I saw that water. Oh My God!

Save your money. With new maps they should be able to make new towering cumulus clouds that stress the new 9800 Ultra and 5900 Pro.

Maybe they did make new clouds and they are not saying... <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>"It was to be announced at the Party Congress on Monday.

Hm... If it stresses the 9800Pro, how will it work on my current 9600Pro, then?

And if it stresses the 9800/5950, then we will have to wait for a completely new generation of vid cards since the two above mentioned cards are the most powerful the money can buy.

If they make new, and stressful, clouds.

But, I don't think they bothered.

The FB clouds don't stress even my old Savage motherboard video. At least for me, water alone is not a reason to spend 300$+ on 9800 Ultra (or whatever). Some new towering cumulus or real overcast like LOMAC has would be a real reason to upgrade (for me).

Wait, you just said they will model new cumulus clouds that will bring the latest vid cards to their knees, if I'm not mistaking my self.

Besides, R9800Pro is very beneficial in other games and applications as well. And yes, it is a bit pricey. But it will (hopefully) last until 2005!

Sorry, I said "if" they mod new clouds. I wish they would, but they won't.

Great http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Can't wait for this damn expansion, that water and the P38 'pit look excellent. Also - some excellent damage modelling on those Betties.

Be nice if someone did one of Spitfires taking apart some 109Fs, to balance out their kicking at the hands of those 190s in that other story http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Did you play with those settings? If so, what kind of fps were you getting and what other system specs do you have? Thanks!

the missions were played on excellent settings @ 4xAA/AF first, then replayed in perfect mode with 16xAF. FPS at perfect settings are rather low. AMD XP2400+, 768MB DDRAM.

Whatever the settings, the images are stunning! Look at that water! And the P-38 looks really sharp.

The story of the second Betty, btw, is told in good detail in "Zero," a book by Horikoshi, the adjutant at Rabaul when Yamamoto was shot down.

Wonder who "IL2tester" is?

So Gib,would you say her FM is accurate? I'm definately looking forward to the Lightning,but I had my doubts that she would be modelled to her full potential. Anyway,those are awesome shots. It's been so long since we've had any "war stories" and now we've had two incredible ones within the same week! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
