Man , I dont know what to say ,buy I think the boys at maddox games were sipping to much vodka when they put out this patch. It is by far the worst exicuted patch I have ever seen. To expect there costumers to modify there regestries is insain if not down right cheap. Not every one is a comp wiz or even know what a registry is. Some people just buy games to play and they pay good money for them. They didnt expect to be told to tinker with there comp. I hear now people are having throtle isues now, I am blown away by the lack of Quility Controll in this patch. Im now denied access to online gamaing because maddox games could not deliver the same attention to detail as the original game. This patch has vituraly turned my copy if IL strumovik FB useless to me. I expect these type of over sights by microsoft not UBI soft. I started this thread for people that feel like I do ,in hopes that madoxx games will offer a new patch to correct these blunders.

I find it pleasantly ironic to read a complaint about someone else's quality control which is written so poorly:

exicuted
regestries
insain
throtle
Quility Controll
gamaing
vituraly
strumovik

Among other egregious errors. And as far as your patch whine goes - I take you didn't realize it was released basically as an open beta?

What is your technical support question?

Or are you just ranting?

If you are, then STFU n00b, because patch 1.1b is an open-beta, not a finished product.

What is there not to understand about that?

I believe they said they will fix the problem with the finished patch, or for those who couldn't wait that long could do it themselves, doesnt take a wiz to look through the registry and rename a few lines of text geez. They even tell you how to do it.

May you not become a dirt torpedo.

This thread should be locked/deleted. First of all the whining should be confined to GD and ORR. I spend my time on this board because I grow sick and tiered of ppl who constantly whine and cry. However, this thread doesn't even belong in those boards. Perhaps this person should have posted his racial slurs on some Neo Nazi sight. I know that during the Cold War it was acceptable to slur the Russians for the rampant alcoholism in that country. Perhaps many of you have overlooked just how offending the remarks of this person are.

Would we tolerate a Poles are stupid, Greeks are homosexuals, or Africans are inferior thread? Hell no; the tripe this ignorant person has typed out should be removed!

why would anyone release an open beta that you "must" use to get on the gaming site. If the game site would run old "AND" new versions that would be ok. As it is , this patch is totally lame, especially since it has caused major game hosting problems....just because they make a great game, doesnt mean you give them a pass on this blunder...., for myself, the well, we will fix it in the next release, whenever we get around to it , is a little too long to wait for a patch causing severe problems!

you are right on!

RCAF Trout, Supr, georgeo 76, PlatinumDragon, Commie1, and Terasaur---STFU!!!!! Man, what a bunch of f**king vultures...we are all SO sad that such talented pilots and know-it-alls have nothing better to do then flame paying customers for griping about being an unpaid beta-tester. The man was upset and needed to vent as have A LOT of folks on this forum. This patch should have never been released to the general public...and Oleg is probably waking up to that fact pretty quickly. Having rapid dogs such as yourselves ripping into anyone that has the temerity to complain is not what IL2FB needs right now...that last patch was bad enough. If they paid their money then they have the right to gripe as loud as they want to on these forums...or should we all just hold hands and sing songs to the Great And Infallible Oleg? Get a life...

some additional points to consider...

1.most folks don't see anything other than the word "patch" and simply install it...the "open-beta" part is lost on them. You have to expect that. 1C should have known that.
Most mirror sites just titled it "FB patch 1.1b".

2.vodka remark unnecessary and foolish but understandable...what isn't is flaming someone so hard for it...WHILE not criticizing the other fools for using the now infamous slight "nOOb". An insult is an insult and to complain about one while ignoring the other is the height of hypocracy.

3.being told to STFU and wait for the next patch is really, really poor advice. Look how long it took this one to get to us. The sound bugs have made this game virtually unplayable and to suggest that we all just stop playing until Oleg and crew can spare time from their next projects to figure out the problem is just downright silly. I personally spent most of the weekend reading posts and tweaking settings to no avail...had to reinstall FB 1.0 to get back to a sound level that wouldn't sound COMPLETELY horrible or damage my promedia 5.1's. The flak bug damn near cost me these speakers the first time it happened cause it was so loud. thought for sure I had popped a speaker...

4.Flaming folks for poor grammer is suitable for an English Lit. forum but on a flight-sim forum it just comes across as poor sportsmanship. You don't have to know how to spell English correctly in order to fly well...right Oleg?

where are all the saner heads on this forum? why let this sort of vindictive flaming drive potential CUSTOMERS from this gerne/game? With the consoles breathing down our necks and stealing many good pc games as well as dev. dollars, we NEED as many "nOOb"s as possible to keep pc gaming healthy. welcome them, help them, EXPLAIN things to them or just IGNORE them but don't flame for the sake of flaming or maybe the next version of FB you play will be on a crappy xbox controller...roger, out!

If you have a legitimate complaint about the patch, that's one thing. But to come here and post incoherent rants, including slurs against Russians, is quite another.


And frankly, if people can't be bothered to read up on what the patch does and doesn't do, that's their look out. Or is spoon feeding now the norm?



- 4.Flaming folks for poor grammer is suitable for an

Not at all - anyone who is going to b*tch about quality control had damned well better exercise some himself. There's no excuse for writing that badly. You want to get your message across? Take the time and effort to write it properly, so you don't look like an illiterate. And by the way, sport - it's "grammar."

Yes, I certainly do read Oleg's posts. And he makes an effort to be clear. If he misspells a word, or his grammar is sometimes a bit off, it's not for lack of trying.

And I'd bet money the person who started this silly thread is a native English speaker. Just not a good one.

but why would you make that assumption in the first place? Look, I love this game as passionately as anyone but here is a concept that many on this forum need to warm up to---the majority of folks who visit this board are doing so BECAUSE THEY'RE HAVING PROBLEMS. When one of your favorite games suddenly gets tanked you tend to become upset...and rightly so. It shouldn't come as any suprise when that person arrives at this forum and angrily lashes out...imagine that person ready to jump off the roof...do you attempt to talk him down and restore some reason to his clouded judgement...or do you call him names and hollar "For God's sake, JUMP ALREADY!" I'm just saying...

Hello tjs_man

First off I'm no Oleg worshiper, I resent that. Second I think I made my point about vodka comments and ignorance.

I generally stay in the Tech support forum because in here I can learn stuff and maybe pass along a little knowledge to someone else. Nobody from the customer service/support staffs of UBI or 1C reads this board and if you've got a complaint you should forward it to them. Ppl who do read these forums are pretty damn sick and tired of the whining. And while it's true that anyone w/ an internet connection (not just someone who owns this game) is free to post here; it's also true that myself and other like-minds have the prerogative to point out their poor language skills, ignorance, immaturity, and all around asshatness.

If you or Terasaur feel the absolute need to complain then why don't you at least take it to General Discussion? There is far more traffic on that board so if you really feel the need to showcase your ignorance then you've got a better audience there.

I cant belive you icarus. You were the first person to read my thread and you set the pace. Evey one thinks I'm a moron because I can't spell or can't tinker with my registry but I was interested in buying the game. I worked hard for the money. I guess in your peoples world you allow this stuff to happen because your used to fixing the problems yourself. Maybe you all are highly educated individuals. You obviously think you stand above some. You could have offered some solutions to the problem,but instead you did what you did. In all the things said about me I was encouraged to find out that they are trying to fix the patch.

One, people need to step back and take a breath - I`m a shillelagh-wielding Nazi (half Irish, half German), and if someone makes light of that fact I am not small enough to take offense to it. This world is becoming more and more anally reactionary to that which is in no way meant to be derogatory, merely sly. Instead of saying that a russian is sipping a little too much Vodka (which is indeed funny) we could always ask a yankee to get his head out of the apple pie long enough to breath (or something similar but funnier...). Its the intent behind the statement that matters - a mere joke of x subject does not make one a Klansman. If it did, Sid Caesar would be one of the biggest racists that ever lived by virtue of his hilarious bs linguistic imitations; such performances don`t mean Sid is racist, and I would dare anybody to have the rank stupidity to claim such a thing. And yet we eagerly apply such stupidity to other people in similar circumstances. Humility is being able to laugh at yourself. Learn to identify true hatred before you step on your podium, please.

The patch? I`ve been playing games for many many moons, and I almost made the mistake of applying this Beta patch too. It wasn`t labelled as such wherever I saw it; only previous experiences cautioned me to the point where I deduced this from other sources. Most people aren`t so diligent and not by virtue of any integral intellectual deficiency, but by an innocent nievity. This sort of thing *is* a problem for 1C.

As for this post, yes it should be in the General Discussion or Oleg`s Ready Room. Then again, the posters *are* describing technical problems, are they not?...

all we've seen for the past several months is whining about the patch being late. Now, we see whining about different aspects of the patch. Funny, I bet it all comes from the same people.

Is the patch perfect? maybe not, but it is certianly not the crap that a few who rant and rave want you to believe it is. It may have a few bugs, but thats just like every other patch i've ever seen released, for any game. So yea, it got a few bugs, maybe thats why they call it an open beta. its no big deal and deas not warrant the type of abuse it gets from some here. They have told you step by step how to work around the multi player problem and if tweaking your system is not for you, then neither are fight sims. Every one of them i can rememeber required some tweaking to get them to work right.

In fact, with very few exceptions, the patched game works great for me, and i have a very mid range system to play it on. Most of the other people that i know and fly with all agree that it works well for them too. So why is it we have to listen to some guy who's first post to this community is some rant about how its all crap. Ever think that maybe some of the guys that have been around here since the begining may have a better idea about whats wrong with the patch and what right with it. And when those guys find an issue, they present it in a more logical and well thought out manner so others will take it seriously. Not to mention they often present some evidence as to why they believe what the believe.


Not like some idiot who just screams it all sucks because they fixed the exploits he was using. Not that the origianl poster was even doing that, but thats what is plastered all over these forums lately. It like the forum has been invadeed by a bunch of 15 yr old counterstrike players. All they can do is blame someone else for their problems, no way its a user issue. Its always someones elses fault.

Gee, Terasaur -

Your writing improves. Good for you. And no, I didn't do anything - you were the one who wrote that incoherent post. If everyone thinks you're a moron because of it. . .


*shrugs shoulders*


If you'd phrased your post reasonably, you would have had a very different reaction. But you chose to start by insulting the developers of the software:

"It is by far the worst exicuted patch I have ever seen. To expect there costumers to modify there regestries is insain if not down right cheap. . . "


And you expect better treatment? Why do you think you deserve it?

You were happy enough to make "vodka" slurs, weren't you?
