I'd offer to buy him a BIG drink and try to convince him that not all FB/PF players are a bunch of ungrateful d1ckheads.
(Then I'd ask him in no uncertain terms just why the **** he didn't give me a Whirlwind)


For the benefit of the mentally challenged, that last bit was a joke.

Feel? I have no feelings, I'm a robot.

If we were near a bar, I'd offer to buy him a drink, too. Robots like to get drunk just like you silly humans.

I'd start with a 6 or 8 ounce introduction to Wild Turkey sippin' bourbon, followed by a ride in an old Cadillac, accompanied by an explanation of the expression "Cadillac of the Sky" and its application to certain American WWII fighters in a sparkling mishmash of my excellent English and horrible Russian...

If I just bumped into him doing the shopping or something, I`d probably say nothing at all. I usually do this if I bump into any TV personality or such (I used to see a lot in Richmond, London). This because I don`t respect celebrities/ actors they`re just humans, not gods - refuse collecter`s deserve more praise.

In Oleg`s case I do this because I`m sure he wouldn`t want to bugged by some stranger.

Back in 1999 an AH player told me he heard of a Russian programmer who was about to make a Il-2 simulator.

The idea was neat, although I wondered why would anyone want to fly an Il-2, offline even ? We were, at the time, already hooked on online simming, WB and later AH. I was sceptical about it and, while trying to follow its progress, never heard of Il-2 for the next two years (except one .avi file of Il-2 landing, which was top eyecandy at the time).

After almost two years of silence the demo got out. Wow ! I never thought a humble Russian team would make their firstborn such a success. It was all I wanted a WW2 sim to be. Historical, immersive, detailed ! And with a decent FM and DM. At the time, only AH and WB had quality FM and DM, but lacked in realism and immersiveness (online was 109 vs 190, P-47 vs Spit etc.). Visual effects were breathtaking and my favorite planes were already included.

I quit playing AH instantly and was playing demo, even online. It was actually a CRC error zipped demo file, sometime in summer of 2001. After late autumn of 2001 it became history.

I would certainly thank Oleg for making such an incredible sim. He pushed the standards and brought us hours of enjoyment (sometimes I wish he didn't do that, my real life suffers http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif).

Then I'd ask him about that d@mn bar http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

If it were in a meet and greet type of situation, shake his hand and thank him for such a wonderful and engrossing product. In public, I would have to size up the situation to see whether or not I would be intruding. Side by side at a checkout I'd probably ask if he was Oleg and then shake his hand offer a drink or something.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Does he drink ?

If so and he walked into the bar I would stand him a round by way of a thank you if he was willing.

Maybe ask what he plays / if he plays and what music does he listen to if he doesn't?

Either way thanks for providing me with a gaming experience that I can actually enjoy both online, off line and that has actually been an historical and educational experience.

Also I gota say on the whole it has afforded me with the opertunity to get to know in some small way some realy great guys and girls from places all over the world

I, as a RL pilot would love to thank him. This was and is the best simultion available for a PC.

My wife bought the original IL2 for me as a birthday present because she saw me pick it up at EB and look VERY intetested in it.

As a real life airline pilot with over 4000 hours, I have never seen a computer sim feel so realistic!

I would compliment Oleg on a job well done and let him know that the the 'new' BoB flight model in 4.01 is the absolute best I have seen and felt in a computer.

I'd ask him for a ride in his new 4x4 to spend a day watching the 1C development team at work. Of course I'd have one hand on the door handle and be watching the side mirror for rapidly approaching garbage trucks, etc.
