I am not interested in the content of the late add-on. DVD would have been a nice thing and perhaps compability in the lobby.

However, I am interested in BoB and I haven't made up my mind at all yet - starting already from the very issue of maintaining Windows at all in my computer. (for similar kind of drama I had with a purchase of 64bit XP and activation).

Personally, I lately got delighted by the prospect of getting IL-2 run under wine in linux environment (no-cd .dll was one of the pre-conditions). I boot to Windows rarely anymore (having X-Plane and Targetware on linux as well).

I wish that there will be no discussion or comments on this poll - just a vote. This way it might not get locked but it would still give the publisher an idea where the consumer stands.

It doesnt. It may effect how I run it or install it.. but not whether or not I intend to BUY it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

<span class="ev_code_white">Oleg: I think players should upgrade their PC after the release of Storm of War: The Battle of Britain, but not now. Minimum system would be probably like last year good system for IL-2 series. The simulation has gone from what was to be a study sim involving one aircraft to a real monster anthology of WWII aviation. The engine has been stretched to fit multi-engined bombers, aircraft that are linked (such as the Mistel and the TB-3/I-16 combinations), aircraft carriers, runway cratering, working searchlights, etc.

what people are telling you, Kid, is that your options in the poll are leading, or else not comprehensive enough to answer

And don't bother giving me a link to where you require me to post. All that does is piss people off<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Shouldn't you change your banner? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

Anyway, already bought it but would be happy not to have the CD in the drive like I used to run it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Re-arrange the following words into a well known phrase or saying...

Teacup...A...In...Storm

Does this not sound depressingly similar to the whole "Boonty" release...

A few posters going Whaaa...whaaa...whaa Boonty is ruining my game/hard drive/sex life (delete as appropriate)

Substitute the word Securerom for Boonty and its identical! Talk about deja vu.

Apparantly its present on GTR2....it causes sooo much inconvenience to the normal user...that I didn't even know that till someone pointed it out on SimHQ.com despite having played it since its release...I think that tells you all you need to know about it really http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Can't wait for 1946 to arrive on my doorstep on Friday, whats the betting...I mange to install it with no hassles whatsoever...despite all the moaning...

Besides which...given that its only been available in Finland and Germany...where have all these people complaining about it got it from...

available in Sweden too... and no grief here... works perfectly. A tad longer to load initially, but I can live with that.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It won't effect my purchase one iota.

There is no problem here. Buy it or don't. 1C/<b style="color:black;background-color:#a0ffff">Ubi[/b] deserve to make money off their product.

Solutions?

we can a) Nuke Red China or b) live with the anti-piracy software.

What seems more realistic? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
