View Full Version : optional exe that had better FPS

12-29-2004, 07:20 AM
With 3.02 we had that experimental alternative way of booting up the game that seemed to make a major improvement with frame rates for some people. That does not seem to work after the install of 3.03. Are we going to see another one for 3.03 or was it just integrated into the patch?

I was using the 3.01 exe to start to game & it does'nt work either

The new exe files (from 3.01 and 3.02beta) do not work with 3.03. The game must now be launched with the standard exe.
Apparently the dev team identified some major issues with the new method and it has been withdrawn pending some rework.

NB - The il2fb.exe file has not been replaced in any of the patches to date (pretty sure it hasn't changed since FB's release, though I don't have 1.11, 1.21 or 1.22 patch archives anymore).

the experimental new exe actually killed frames in my case, I'm glad its not in the 3.03 patch

Direct from the 3.03 readme:

"Notice: The new method tested in 3.01 and 3.02 need more work for protection of possible online cheaters. So currently we release such exe file only for dedicated server."

What t2k said. It will be available again, hopefully soon. Not so much about frames for me, as much as for better memory management. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

OK, so now I know why Oleg wasn't answering questions about checking for different results from the same input between the two EXEs :>
