I've heard nothing but enthusiastic comments from the owners. It's a very immersive offline campaign. The developers have put very much effort into it.

I'm just like you guys on this. I know the Combat Over Europe add-on is coming out here in the US, but I want to know if Rebirth of Honor and the Fall Blau add-ons will ever make it stateside .

I sent them e-mail months ago asking them if they were looking for a US based distributor. No reply was given http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I have emailed Asylum several times on this same subject and have never recieved a response. Fall Blau is available from Amazon.de but I do not know the exact procedures to buy it through them from the US. Theoredically it is possible I suppose. Might give them a call to find out.

I played the demo a while back and it was pretty cool. It was different than Battle Over Europe in that it felt more like an action film.

I was going to order it about a month and a half ago but I don't speak german and I didn't want to start messing around with an order form in another language, I have enough problems with order forms in languages I can read (lol).

If anyone comes up with an easy way to get this addon in the states I'm in.

As I asked in another thread (which at this time is also on the front page):

I downloaded the demo...it's installed. But, I have no option to play it...not sure why? It says to read the readme file, but I don't see one any place.

Ideas?

The demo installer put the files in the ubisoft main file along side of the IL2FB program file on my system. I moved the files to the IL2FB program file and I can now play the demo.

Have a look. Maybe it's the same thing on your system.

I've survived one mission so far. Seems quite interesting.

When I emailed the developer a few weeks ago he answered that it was going to be available in Britain and the US 'soon'. I don't know how soon that is but it might be some unkown publisher's decision.

Hey ya Uther!

And yes "Rebirth of Honour" is really cool! Lots of fabulous between action cutscenes in the game's engine plus:

-800+ skins for all kinds of planes (red and blue/ Bf109, FW190, LaGG3/5/7, Yaks, P47, etc.)
-150+ pilot skins
-333+ missions (the new 2.0 version which hit stores has some more "special edition" missions where you fight against Thunderbolts, Lightnings, Mustangs, etc...)


Did I already say that the cutscenes are BRILLIANT? Trust me, your chin will fall to the floor! They are so cool...

And the missions are very motivating... You start up as a green-horn in the German "Jagdwaffe" and make your way to become one of the most successful pilots ever in history.
However the history has some fictional elements. In the campaign Hitler is assassinated in 1942 and a new leadership takes over control in the Reich - the aircraft markings also get changed in the course... You wont have the tradictional WW2 Balkenkreuz but the one worn by German WW1 fighters...

Here is an excerpt of what I wrote about the addon on our squad forum:

"http://www.pluswave.de/

Here you can find a pure offline-campaign addon for IL2FB/AEP. It has 333 brand new missions to offer plus more than 800 skins for all kinds of planes (!! no joke).

The campaign itself is more like a movie where you actually get to participate as the young Luftwaffe pilot Erik "Pega" Reiffenberg who starts as a test-pilot but is then sent to the J├┬Ągerwaffe. He participates in Operation Barbarossa (the invasion of the USSR) and then goes on to become one of the most succesful fighter jocks fighting his way to the bitter end of the war.

There are also many black-white cutscenes told in the game's engine. And I really have to say - most of them are BRILLIANT!

For example: One of the most exciting ones is shown after mission 35. You'll see tanks from the SS Division "Das Reich" and lots of other armoured vehicles approach a large russian airfield where many, many planes struggle to get airborne before the airfield is overrun. However only a handful of them actually makes it. Lots of 'em are shot up during take-off. A P40 desperately starts across the strip but looses a wing due to heavy fire from the tanks and stuff... similar things happen to LaGG3 and/or I16 getting blown up while taxying, etc.

The first time I saw this cutscene (there are lots of them) I really sat there watching in disbelief because I never thought you could create such battle athmosphere in FB - actually I was wrong!

Oh, and every **** plane that you will come across in your missions has an individual skin (yes, every one of them - that's where the 800+skins come from LOL!)


I actually payed around 24Euros/Dollars for this masterpiece - so if you have some cash to give away just get your behind into the next game-store and buy it! It's worth it..."

RR-

When I downloaded the demo, it created a folder called Programme, right after my Program Files on the C drive, and I had to move the files for ROH from there to the proper folders within Il-2/FB 'by hand' before I could play it.

However, I could play it, and I liked it. I'm watching every thread about it for some solid news because 'prefab' campaigns are more fun for me than the 'dynamic' campaigns (possibly because the creators of the 'prefab' campaigns actually think it's a good thing for the player to be able to keep up with his formation leader).

I just finished mission 7 from the demo and still very impressed. Would also consider buying the full version if it's possible to do so well before PF comes out. Whoever said it's like participating in a movie is absolutely right. The mission where you follow IL2s on their bombing run has such a charged atmosphere you almost forget to pull the trigger.

I have just received an email from Martin Dierkes from PlusWave regarding the availability of ROH.Their compnay had made contact with a US distributor about 2 weeks ago but he could not tell me when it would actually be available in the US. He did provide me with a link to purchase the game. It was no problem the ordering was in english. Just be sure to order Rebirth of Honor,the box is in German but the content of the CDRom, the campaign, the videos and the readme files are in German AND in English.
I ordered my copy today. Hope this helps.

I recieved an email from Martin Dierkes on Sept. 2,2004 say that his distributor had set up a site for customers not located in Germany. Please see below. I warn you though the cost of shipping to the US is almost the cost of Rebirth of Honor.
