Half and half.

A little more than half I'd say... sometimes even 100% - remember the BS about the FM changing between 4.0 and 4.01? It was proved to be all hooey with a simple track comparison. (.trk tracks in 4.0 played exactly the same in 4.01 and vice versa)

this used to be the only game i played

multiple sortie every single day , back then no one could BS me about how planes perform - i played FB too much to be fooled

many others are the exact same way

I don't play it every day, but it's one of only three games on my PC right now and I rarely play the other two. Then again, you don't need to be an expert to sniff out BS.

Bump - just for the amount range of opinion on this patch. Interesting to see.

At least 50% .

I agree.

I voted for 25%. There is always some confusion about something, but when filtered out it becomes quite clear http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. Of course without trolling attempts and intentional spreading other misinformation (in wicked way).

I tried a quick mission fight last night between SpitIXes and 109s, I found that the graphics seemed a lot smoother that before, controls were also was a lot more responsive....and I havn't even installed the patch yet!!!

Really it did seem better....it just does once in a while http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

(I've been waiting to see whether the patch was worth installing or not....was it wise to wait?)

Honestly, I've seen minimal changes in this patch so far. And all the wobble paranoia is mostly likely a case of incorrect settings feeding off a placebo effect.
