Oldbies....hmmmmmm. Ya mean like pre Blitz-pig days. Or mayber pre Pilot lounge days. Mayhaps ya mean when Stormin Normin was a mild mannered front guy slaving away in San Francisco tryin to sell a bunch of CFS simmers on a new game called IL2. Or do ya really mean when a certain physco was around, also playing up IL2 as the best thing since sliced bread but having a screw or two loose and finally going off the deep end and being kindly asked to quit insisting they were "deeply involved" in the drafting, implementing and producing of IL2? Is that what ya talkin about?

Sheeeeesh, guess I am a lurker....lmao.

Yeah , i can still remember some of those days.

I remember the discussions concerning the very first patches to make the original il-2 game fly properly.A lot of those guys no longer post here but some of them could get really impatient too.Seems somethings in here aint gonna change. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The one that made me laugh most was by a certain poster who goes by the nic ssbob (i think he still posts ocasionally).He posted on the main forum screen the title "The patch,its finally here".When you clicked on his post you were confronted by a picture taken from the game of a Russian pilot wearing an eye patch./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

At around 2am in the morning i remember spraying my keyboard with coffee.Needless to say there were a few guys who did not see the funny side.Oh well........

I'm still here, but then i'm sure no one remembers me from before. Obviously i don't post much, so that's probably why. I've been reading these forums for around 2 years now, maybe a litte less, i really don't remember.

I still have some of the stuff saved that was posted by "The much feared Sky Masta", and that was from 6-30-02.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.</center>

Oh! One more thing , I'vee bought that FIRST edition of IL2 ,the one that came in a REAL BOX! Beautiful , the IL2 I have is one from my few games that came in a real box. After , to save my disk , I've bought also a cheap DVD box version. I use only the last one.First one stays on my shelves among other favorite titles IN A BOX! (e.g. NASCAR 1,2,3,4,GP2,GP3,GP4,CFS2,AOE GOLD,AH64 plus expansion,Op Flashpoint , Falcon4 , FU1,FU2,FU3, Fly!2k -those are in boxes ,how I like the games)
Dunno since I'm lurking on this forum and I really don't care , is long time since then. I was first interested in FMB , didn't give a damn about fighting ,even today I preffer dead reckoning missions in the IL2 or Jug.This is fun for me.

My box is looking a bit battered - don't tell me it's going to be worth squillions at some future date! Probably not if you guys all have yours as well.
It took me a while to get going on the forums, my introduction to the PL was a thread where Vinnie was roundly abusing Tully, for which he got banned. Before that I had thought that we were all such nice genteel types.

I've been around since the first week the game came out in the U.S. I stumbled across it by accident, hadn't bought a game in years. I couldn't believe someone had made a sim about my favorite obscure plane--the sturmovik. So I bought it on an impulse without knowing anything about it. Of course, it turned out to be about a lot more than Il2s, and like a lot of people here it became the game I played more than anything I've ever come across since Space Invaders.
