I just booted up IL2 after a very long break.... I had actually forgotten how GOOD the sound in that thing is!!!! Now that I flew it again I realizd that that was one of the things I loved about it. The sound was so good!!! Why cant 1C just take the sound from IL2 and use it in FB? Now that I have flown it again I have come to the conclusion that IL2 is the very best sim ever made by virtue of it being first. Dont get me wrong...I think FB is better in most respects...but IL2 was so far ahead of it's time it is totally mind blowing. Even the feel of the FFB is different. FB is great.....but I kind of wish that more of the original was in it. Even it's graphics are still stunning to me. I think FB has better graphics and the FMs are better in some ways..but IL2 is just awesome...STILL!!! I would consider IL2 as Oleg's masterpiece......FB is a different flavor.

I agree wholehearted to Bearcat
Sounds better, much more user friendly, excellent graphics and less demands on your system.


IL2 FB should have been an add on with different maps and aircraft.
Designers would have time to finish their current "beta projects"
OR:
Is FB just, "revenue producing" for LOMAC?

As much as I loved IL-2, I can never go back... FB just does too much for me. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

It makes you realize that the final patched version of IL2 was a finished game, and a great one at that. Online play was smooth - even with a 56k connection - sound was excellent, great game balance, and challenging FM.

I've played it online every now and then even after FB came out and I still think it holds up really well. In many ways it's simply more fun than FB has been but there are just too few people playing it online.

It would be great to have a reunion someday with hundreds of people all joining HL and flying the original IL2. It would blow the minds of those few souls who still fly the original to see what it was like in the heyday of IL2.

Basically FB ruined the game for a lot of people being it was little more than an expansion pack that didn't work. Think of how much happier we would all be if IL-2 was still the game and FB was just more planes put into a game that worked. But no everybody pony up 50 bucks and lets waste a year with a P.O.S. game!! Thanks Oleg Thanks UBI.

yeh, the sound sucks in FB - was much better in IL-2. The planes in FB sound nothing at all like the real thing, there really is no excuse for this when sound cards are so good. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Totaly agree! I often go back to IL-2 to see what I'm missing. The sound in particular is so much better, with engines that sound real and different from each other. I cannot understand how Oleg made such a change. I also still prefer IL-2 online to FB. I just all feels so much more natural but it's hard to put my finger on the reason.

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

actually sound in IL2 for Audigy cards was dreadful .. that part of the FB sound drivers is definitely better than in Il2

but the basic Il2 sound for generic cards was better that is true

Exactly. FB still has a few more patches to go.


I play IL2 often, because my brother and I play LAN games and the other machine can't handle FB. IL2 is still 90% the game FB is. If FB had better sound and refined FM it would blow IL2 away. But till then, I see the two games as almost interchangeable.
