Hi All,

1) Due to the large number of issues thrown up by patch beta 08 we intend releasing patch beta 09 to make sure most of those issues have been addressed.

2) This means the final patch will be delayed until patch beta 09 has been tested.

3) This test will be an OPEN BETA. This way we all have the same version and can involve as many as possible in the beta process.

4) The patch beta 08 or 09 should be released on Wednesday 13th or Thursday 14th August. It will contain the latest version of DGen as well.

5) At the time there will be a thread on this forum as before for BUG (not wish) submission.

6) Yes, I know this is different to what has been posted on the Ubi forum. I am writing what I believe to be the case - it's possible that there has been a communication error either within Ubisoft or with me. I believe it's the former.

7) One of the reasons for releasing the Open Beta is to reassure customers of the progress made over the last months. In addition the feedback given on Beta 08 has been very constructive.

After talking to Cartrix on the phone just now, Patch beta 09 will be released as Patch 1.1 beta. Other than that it still stands.

So we get patch09beta next week as a final patch? And I'm guessing there will be another final patch sometime later to correct any issues that may come up in this beta09?

Confusing stuff.. hehehe, 2 final patches..

Anyway, why the wait until wednesday next week? I can't believe the widely leaked beta08 was the latest version since its already a few weeks old.. surely this "beta09" has been in testing by the betateam for some time now, or am I wrong? Might as well release it right now then http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif or "leak" it :P

If people will recall Oleg actually said a long time ago that when the patch comes out it will be followed up with a free add on that will include A. more planes and B. any fixes that the patch did not cover. This is not a new development in any way. I for one am glad it is going to be open beta. If they said this is the only and final patch I would be worried

It`s funny how in the end WE ALL became beta-testers. Not that I`m complaining....

Well at least the postponement dates have gone down from two weeks each to one and a half weeks. At that rate, we'll get the patch next year. Hopefully http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Thx for the info. I am still pretty mad about the changing dates.. in the beginning it was "when it comes out in europe" then July, then July30th then week of august4th and now it is getting delayed AGAIN! And i left out all the "in two weeks"- siht.

Why didnt they just release a patch after they made some progress and then another one after some more progress? like all other companies do? If u keep fixing until its perfect then u end up NEVER releasing it.

Anyways, great game as it is. Just learn to keep your fakgjagd promises. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Not that i want to complain BUT I'll be away!!!! I will leave on Thursday, how can you realease the patch on wednesday, that's pure teasing. aaaaaaaaaaaaa. Why don't you hold the pach back and check it first till the...let's say 25th. yes 25th sounds nice, oh i nearly forgot I'll return on the 25th. Issn't it funny that you decided to hold the patch back till the 25th?

Very interesting, how UBI's plans go together with mine. I wonder why you announced the patch will be out next week if you decided just now to wait till the 25th, when I will be back from my holidays.

Bavaria is one of the oldest European states.
It dates back to about 500 A.D., when the Roman Empire was overcome by the onslaught of Germanic tribes. According to a widespread theory, the Bavarian tribe had descended from the Romans who remained in the country, the original Celtic population and the Germanic invaders.

Thanks for an update.

imo they should have done this months ago - at least a beta would have fixed bugs like p40 dive bug and the skin dload problem.

However they want to do it is fine by me, but I must say, this has been one rollercoaster of a ride.

So... if its an open beta, does that mean that its available to everyone, or just a select few? Also, does anyone know when the completed patch is released? I'm not trying to be stupid, but I'm just a bit confused about the patch... BTW I do find it a bit annoying how the simHQ forum gets a lot more information about the progress of the game/patch than the OFFICIAL WEBSITE. Oh well... Thanks for keeping us informed Heurisitc-ALgor and Ian.

Ed... OPEN means that we all get the beta patch.... and to report any bugs we find via a special form that will come with the beta patch, like Oleg already said...

It might be the 'finalized patch' providing we don't find any big bugs that have not been spotted thus far. But the chances are that Oleg will release an update patch that may be called the 'official' 'finalized' or whatever patch.

FB is a work in progress like any other software. It's never gonna be compeletly finished - so we'll be getting improvements as long as it lives, as and when required.

The planes will come in a seperate add-on.

Sorry about that. I think it is really good that this is going to be an open beta patch- better than most patches where you get what you're given and can't report any problems. I apologise for my earlier stupidity. I think I can wait for any future addon planes (as long as they are good, which they certainly look!) /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I think this is an excellent idea because I'm sure that with ANY patch released there will be some unsolved issues for some people. Releasing it as a beta allows the most widespread testing and hopefully reveal any remaining bugs.
