Wow

"PF is provided with a new generation of Starshoy's DGen and NGen engines, builded to suit more to the new specifications of the new theater. The NGen - multiplayer generator-- will allow you, in the "beyond line of sight" campaigns, to decide by yourself the movement of the Task Forces, and which sectors to scan looking for the ennemy fleet. The NGen nearly become a "game inside the game", and gives to PF multiplayer a nearly ifinite life."

and double Wow

"Other changes are to signal: now the IA is "Kamikaze" capable, and this can be set through their flight plan. You can also choose to supply your crew with parachute, or not, and this to simulate some japanese "habits". But most important, you can force the AI to keep radio silence on the waypoints, and break it only at your order, and this in order to remain "stealthy". This promise to be really usefull in multiplayer games, no more spying.

this from the articel.

If you want to play aerials peplums with tons of activity, your only solution is to go out there and by 2Gb Ram + the last nvidia or ati product. Life is a ***** =) -


what the h.ll do they mean we should buy a 2gb ram and state of the art graphic card too play when theirs multiple boogeys, i have a 3ghz cpu with 768mg ram with a ati 9700+ pro, and have no problem playing il2/aep in perfect with good fps 40-50 even on the finnish maps its runs nice with perfect on.Do i realy need too upgrade my cpu for this game?

No. you dotn need any upgrade.

AJ took for example midway. even if you run perfect in the bigger maps, you will not be able to have 30 ships + their AAA and nearly 60 planes fooling around there, with an acceptable framerate.

With "aeriel peplum" we meant "real engagment" ..

it is like in FB/AEP right now. YOu can't run a B17 raid with more than 200 of them + 60 escorts + 150 intercepts + FLAK --- can you..?

Well, I guess that's a variety of English...

But what really confuses me is that the author says this:

"There will be two main innnovations : carrier operations, of course, and the arrival of the first amphibian plane, the "Rufe" (kind of Zeke with floats =) "

and it makes me wonder: the author implies he is more or less "in the know", but how familiar can he be if he doesn't realise that there's an amphibious plane in FB already?

The author implies something in the French version that is not reproducted in the English version (which will be a little improved soon, but it is still a very good work fastly done, thanks Merlin http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ), that it is (except if someone lied to me recently) the first amphibious plane to be playable... am I wrong?

Well, to be perfectly honest, there is nothing I read that implied that the 'amphibious' plane in question was also flyable. If I missed it, that's my fault, but surely you understand that I didn't say anything negative at all, I am just wondering. I could have said that the f'n dummy who wrote that didn't know what the christ he's talking about, but I didn't.

I realise that the internet is the Land of Confusion, but I tend to post what I mean, and I meant that it confuses me, and it did. I can see now from another post that something was lost in the translation, but this post of mine you responded to is not some kind of knock on you or your work, Starshoy.

well. I asked somebody over HL for the exact transation of "hydravion" in french, and I was told "amphibous" plane. In french, amphibie isnt really the same thing as hydravion, because it means it can go both on land or sea.

but since the Rufe can be lauched from a deck with a catapult, the "amphibous" term sounded good enough for me.

Now, if such details confuse you, next time the dummy will let you read the french version, which may be much more clear http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

now, i know that the english used is poor, but its the only one I was able to produce for this translation in the middle of a jet lagged night http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hi guys, for a comparison on the translation, I have spent several hours trying to make a decent translation of the article. I think I succeeded in making it more literal than what Merlin has done in his limited time. I've posted it here (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=26310365&m=601102536), please feel free to use it to make any changes to the version at Check-Six; at worst I hope it might help clear some questions up for forum members.

There are a couple of places where I had to leave ???? 'cause with my limited French I couldn't make sense of a part of the sentence.

Edit: I made this translation before I realized there would be an English translation, it wasn't because I thought the English translation by Merlin was lacking.

thx a lot michapma, and im sorry to have make my annouce so early. Your work is much better than mine, my english being much worse than yours-

I will see with AJ to put it on the official version.

Next time, if you are still interested in such works, let me know, i'll be in contact with you before any release so we can do it simultanously for both languages. Thx a lot, and sorry again-

Translation's a funny thing. A few years ago, I was asked to help translate a French letter from a client (at one point in the dim past I was converstaional in French, but records from that era are sketchy at best). My old firm uses a lot of aerospace quality foam from a company named Rohm in Germany. I knew the letter from the French company was asking about a product catalog about...something...but not what. Pain de moussse, pain de mousse. What the heck is pain de mousse?!? Turned out it was a descriptive name for "foam rubber", literally bread-foam, not dessert-bread http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Idioms are always one of the hardest things once you're past the basics. One of my favorites is "tomber dans les pommes," literally, "fall in the apples," which means to pass out. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Some of the more difficult phrases I had to deal with in this article were:

"Bon, inutile de faire jouer les violons," literally, "Well, no use to have the violins go on playing."

"(cheville sous forme de pirouette tadaaaa)," something like "(heel under form of piroute, ta-daaa)," the exact meaning of which escapes me if not entirely the intent, which is summed up pretty well by the "ta-daaa." I just left it out.

There were lots of interesting slang and idioms, it was a great exercise to brush up on my French, which doesn't find all too much application in Zurich. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
