May i make a suggestion already, DO NOT CALL IT 1.1B there is already a 1.1A for the original game and you will just cause so much confusion with people trying to upgrade the game in later years etc as they will see an there is a 1.1B patch and also a 1.1A one as well.

Could you not rename it to something like FB.1a or something to get it away from the possibilities of confusion, we already had some of this with people trying to add the original patches to the new game until you added the message at the top of the page.

Remember a lot of people new to the game and coming on to use this patch will not realise there are 2 games, different patches etc and like lemmings will run over the cliff sooner or later... lets put a wall up now while you have a chance so only the determind lemming will make it over. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

good news by the way

I dont think youu were getting the point i was trying to get across, people new to the game coming on line and perhaps not realising there was a previous version will see various patches for IL2 one being 1.1a and also the new 1.1b, these people will tend to assume Naturally that one patch follows the others and install them.... Changing the patch name totally from the current number order used on IL2 may help stop this.


Dont think so? well the Lemmings already tried, We were getting so many queries on the UBI Servers from people saying , Hey i have downloaded and installed the 1.2 patch onto my FB and i cant play, why?..... That is why Catrix added the red rider to the top of the download page saying this patch is for IL2 the original version only.....

I suppose you could also colour code the text on the Patch descriptions if they are going to go on the same page or I hope they are opening another Page for the FB ones and keeping them separate.

It`s a good point Taylor. Patches always caused confusion. Maybe they should give it different number instead of letter. kind of agree with you /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Let's give it a name, shall we?

How about Peter?

Peter the Patch.

That should keep some of the younger members of the board (bored?) entertained for a wee while /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Or perhaps a colour???

Purple, I think (I'm feeling quite alliterative tonight).

Or then, keeping with the programme... we could do a Purple Prince thingy and give it a wee sign - maybe a little purple aeroplane called Peter.

No if you'll excuse me I'm off to get a good stiff drink.... Vodka an orange. a Screwdriver to you /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

And it doesn't occur to anyone that it might be called "IL2FBpatch1.1b.exe" or something? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

IMO, they should have called all FB versions "2.x" since they represent a major feature set revision from IL-2:Classic (versions 1.xx).

OMG, FI:Fenian, that was funny. I was drinking a soda when I read your post, and shot cola out of my nose from laughter!

Peter the Purple Plane Patch! Would it also come bundled with a catchy tune for our listening enjoyment while it installs?

"Put this patch in the proper place,"
"Or you will get a grimace on your face."

"This patch is for Eff-Bee,"
"Not Eye-El-Two,"

"So do what Peter Purple Plane,"
"Tells you to."

"If you're too dumb to figure it out,"
"You'll patch your game wrong, and then you'll shout!"

"If they had just named it right,"
"I wouldn't be blue.."

"I should have done what Peter,"
"Told me to."


ROFLMAO!
