At last now we see why no Spits thus far!!!

Is this for real? Oleg and his "lot" doing the magic for the bob,,,, outstanding!!

Methinks that even with existing tech it will take till 2005 for things to catch up enough to allow realistic numbers of planes in the air to simulate bob properly.

Happy!

it is for real, he said it yesterday at the NEC in Birmingham. Interestingly, I spoke to him an hour or so before and the Spitfire ended up in the conversation, i.e. me saying 'please please give me a Spitfire' kinda thing.

He just replied with 'You will get a Spitfire MkV soon, I promise' (and smiled).

I think that we may have one a lot sooner than BoB btw /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Bader ol' chap.......I'm not an expert....but what sort of pc upgrade will we be looking for to support this game?? Whatever it costs I will pay because this has got to be the best development so far.

Thanks in anticipation

MB_Avro, old bean. Oleg commented on making a graphics/game/physics engine that would be scalable for upto seven years. In terms of what hardware you'll likely need, simply apply Moore's law and loot at somewhere in 2005, presuming it'll be released then.

Pentium 5's (Prescotts) are touted as hitting 5Ghz, probably next year, so I would have thought something along these, whilst sounding like a monster now, will be a high-end box come Q1/Q2 2005.

Intel Prescott 4-5Ghz CPU / AMD Opteron thingy,
min 1Gb RAM, maybe 2Gb,
256Mb min, perhaps 512Mb ATI (for arguments sake) graphics card.
lots of disk space.

This is, of course, complete speculation but given the speed at which technology advances, I'll be happy if, this time next year, the box I've just built, as per sig, can run the latest games 'maxxed out'. If you want something now tho, get something like in my sig, it is BLINDINGLY fast and should be good for a good 18 months.

p.s. Don't wait, you'll wait forever http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
