AFAIK , Oleg Maddox is the founder of "Maddox Games"

Maddox Games is in business with 1C to publish its "IL2" series

There used to be a biography on Oleg Maddox and the other members of the IL-2 development team. From memory, Oleg is an aeronautics wizard who used to program military simulators for the Soviet military and later started his own software development team to create encryption software for businesses and entertainment software as well. "IL-2 Sturmovik" started as a pet project of sorts based on his expertise and his love of air combat sims like "Jane's WWII Fighters."

I think 1C is the big parent software house, and Maddox Games is a branch. So 1C:MG would be the whole team that Oleg is responsible for. I think. Perhaps he is a subcontractor.

I'm somewhat confused by Oleg Maddox's involvement with WWII RTS. A few years ago when it was being called "Wartime Command" the press releases were actually citing 1C and 1C:Maddox Games as the developer. I think that in that particular case, Oleg Maddox was less 'hands on' and had a separate team doing all the coding ... his personal interests probably would be more in the development of "Battle of Britain," which apparently is incorporating the 3D models of WWII RTS in some fashion. There is some kind of a link between Maddox, the IL-2 series and WWII RTS but generally speaking I don't think Oleg Maddox is considered the developer of WWII RTS.

As I said, I'm unclear on the details behind the RTS.

Oleg is the owner of
Maddox Games named after ermmmm Oleg, this is now a subsiduary of 1C Games and have been contracted to Ubisoft an independant company to produce the games you now fly.. That is why the RTS game if it ever sees the light of day was a CodeMasters one, as they bought the rights to market it, a bit like Ubisoft and the IL2 series.

he is just another software developer from this universe...why, just in the very next parellel universe to ours, he is actually otto von matoch, who was a software developer for the luftwaffe

he has to contend with constant whines about the "bar" in yak cockpits, fuel leak bug and other DM bugs in La7s, UFO italian fighters, making too many french fighters to satisfy that market, american fighters that climb too well, and then some, with the P 47 prop pitch cheat, japanese planes that absorb 37mms shells, polish , czech and rumanian "fantasy" plane whines, etc etc...all the german planes perform exactly as, or better than historical, and everyone knows they are totally n00b...

50 cals still suck tho...some things never change regardless of which universe/timeline you are in

Major Setback won the award for best responce to my question. The pic proves how much time was put into this game. I think they will not throw it out. But I get a little tired, waiting sometimes. I ask Oleg (now)for a responce about the release date. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

Oleg is in the patch business, and the inventor of "two weeks".

10-07-2005, 08:19 PM
Well I wish you luck...he's got the patch to 4.02 for this sim, the update for it after that, and his new sim to work on, as well as the day-to-day running of a business...but it can't hurt to ask

Yeah... well, what kind of Russian name is "Maddox", anyway? There isn't even an equivalent of the Latin alphabet "X" in Russian.

I guess it could be "Maddoks", but that isn't very Russian.
