Don't forget 27 pages of "No it can't!" "Yes it can!" about the plane on the conveyor belt.

And for the record, Yes it can!

What patches? Som & 46 are not patches. They are to be $$paid$$ add ons from my understanding. I am sure if they were just patches we would have had them when they were done.

Will UBI admit they screwed the pooch before Bush does?

10-05-2006, 03:54 PM
Bush already said UBI screwed the pooch, he's pissed too!

10-05-2006, 04:35 PM
yeah well what can we do? Seems they got no more room to put the money http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yes, Boonty must be added to the addon pac.

They are indeed ready. But we haven't reached the "We have discovered a major bug and need to fix this before we can retest etc. etc.". No slur on 1c or RRG, it just happens.

Still a good long way to go yet methinks.

Apparently the wait was to enable compilation of the entire FB/AEP/PF/Pe2/Manchuria/46 onto a single DVD, with some enhanced features as well.

We win.

Be sure.

At the other hand - never trust UBI release dates... I found this looking for 1946 on the main UBI site:


Release date October 2003... Yeah right. It's been ditched years ago too (which is bad!).

The next release can't take place before the (supposedly) "accidental patch leak" which happens before every patch/add-on comes out. After this always-occurring "accident" happens, you'll know the real patch/add-on release will occur in the next couple of weeks or so. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Well, the delay may be because they're actually testing it. Then again, why change the habit of a lifetime?

Maybe it just got lost down the back of the sofa for a while...like one of the previous patches http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

testing - leaking - leak testing - test leaking

Well, you all wanted DVD's so that takes pressing (yea i know old record term)....Packaging, setting up distribution as in from factory>to distributor>to warehousing>to sub-distributors>consumer direct vendors+consumer mail order vendors, plus all the logistics of shipping, determining barcodes, and the tons of paperwork associated with it, making shelf space in the warehouses, dedicating lines to the work....Much much more then you consider......

After all of that and the projected dates, it may also be determined to strategically hold it back for christmas gift sales, as all that expensive marketing hooplah gets wasted if too early and everyone is thinking of Halloween, or Thanksgiving or whatever instead......

Be careful of what you ask for unless you know all it entails.....

GOOD NEWS!!!!........You're all getting what you asked for http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
