View Full Version : What about the other "FLYABLES" ???

11-23-2004, 05:42 PM
I thought we were supposed to get a patch for the other flyable planes that were not able to come with this patch due to DL size limitations... Does anyone know the scoop on when we will get them?

Next week think.

This was posted on the main page last week:

Dear folks,

Our programmer finally come back (but another got sick). He said he need week or so that to get listed by me planes finally coded. So we decided to release tomorrow the separate of new planes patch with fixes and improvements.

It is already compiled today, but not ready final readme. Should be ready by tomorrow morning. I think it is the best way for the current moment that to do not wait for another week (and maybe you'll find something more that to fix ).

We will offer this patch as v3.01 for the stand alone PF and v3.01m (merged) for the common install PF into FB+AEP. All I promised (even more) will be included in that patch except new planes. Sorry, see above.

In additional we will give some new effects on the water, etc....

Recommended drivers from the time of this patch:

ATI cards: Catalyst 4.11 http://www.ati.com/home/online/CatalystCCCdriver.html
nVidia cards: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_66.93

I can say that it is our common work with the guys from these respected firms. Was fixes from both sides

There in the patch we will offer the new method of the program start (new executable programs) We will keep old and new at once - you will be able to compare differences and report us which is the best.

The size will be ~60 Mb
And the size for these who like to test new method (new executable module) in additional ~7 Mb

With the tests here of new module we got better FPS... But the main purpose - to protect from possible in future online cheaters by the new method of code cripting.

We promised to change the gunnery of the ships - we did it. Even more - it is now more tunable here not only in custom missions, but as well in campaign (both single and online).

There also is present new map - Marianas. Several new campaigns (and fixes for some of old, where was bugs)

Fixes and improvemens list? It is simply impossible to list them all. I would say that the changes were applied to more than 200 modules of program where users found the bugs and where we ourselves were making improvements. So we will list just common changes (also not small list of couple pages!) which will include main changes and improvements without list of all the details (or we will write reade one more week )

So, with the release of this patch we will look for the short respond and then will release add-on with the new planes and dedicated servers.
SO, as you can see...there's a perfectly logical reason. I would expect to see that patch any day now.

From what I heard the Ki 100 and the brewster buffalo will also be included...but secretly I've got my fingers crossed for the torpedo bombers too...would be one heck of an early christmas present for me!

I'd love to see a flayable AVENGER!!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif but I'm still have'n a ball with the A-20& THE SBD!!!!,HAPPY TURKEY DAY !!!!

11-25-2004, 02:42 PM
I think Avenger is one of the flyables, to give us a single engine torp plane to match the kate that the japanese navy will get in the patch.

Avenger is gonna be a SWEEEEEET ride! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

im keeping my hopes up for the devestator even if its AI


11-25-2004, 04:19 PM
Three flyables: Buffalo -which is just a conversion of B-239, Betty and Ki-100. Maybe some AI (Tempest).

I'd not bet about many more surprises. Kate is far from being done -as far as I know.

Late Oscars, or Jippo's Ju 88 are a more likely candidate.

Errr....Helldiver http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif bites nails not fer this next patch but maybe in PF 3.3!! And evasive fleet manuevers in PF 3.6 and D.C.men on deck with hoses,and all that in PF 3.9!!!

I dont mean to be a horses patoot about this. but I think UBI soft has got to stop its string of false advertising.
It is advertised as having flyables that are not there.
then when you get the game they dont exist only to find out they will be released for free when they get around to it.
they did the same thing with the B-25s in AEP
I knew this was going to happen, but some who purchased it did not.
its like buying a tv that has a remote only to open the box to find a note saying your remote will be shipped eventually. but thanks for buying it. that wouldnt be legal so why is this.
just curious. but i think UbI needs to do some reorgonizing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

ok sorry all that said I cant wait to fly that betty!!
and we get a new carrier plane, and the ki-100 woo hoo more skins to do

11-26-2004, 01:55 AM
I heard that we will get the flyable V1 and V2 (Santa claus style)to substitute the Avenger and Kate since they have no cockpits to develope and therefore would be historically correct and cheaper.

11-26-2004, 01:00 PM
We only have to wait until they have all had a turn at being sick, then it will get released.

They gotta stop drinking from the same brew mug!

MXY7? When flyable?
