View Full Version : A slightly different request - 64 bit patch?

06-16-2005, 10:24 AM
Now seeing as IL2/PF is bottlenecked by the CPU. I thought well, the devs for farcry produced a 64 bit patch so I wonder if oleg could create a 64 bit windows patch. This coupled with an AMD 64 CPU would greatly enhance performance http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Id much rather have this than some new aircraft!

Good Idea Aimail

I didn't fallow yet the XP windows 64, Is it out yet? the non demo.

XP 64 is out http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif....I hope oleg sees this it would be great if this did happen. Farcry benefited hugely from the 64 bit patch!

sounds interesting, could you provide some more info in what this patch does exactly??

I don't know about a 64bit patch for Fartcry as i don't play that game.

What kind of improvement does it offer on normal computers, or does it need a specific CPU or Operating System ?? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It needs a 64 bit cpu a LOT of people have these already so that would be no problem.....but people would need the 64 bit XP OS. As with farcry the game would still be compatible online with the 32 bit version. Performance would be greatly enhanced if il2 supported a 64 bit processor!

06-16-2005, 03:10 PM
Yes! A very good idea indeed! We have an OS, we drivers - all we need is a game!

06-16-2005, 04:15 PM
got the system but not the OS. (if) the game would support 64 bit and you had the set up, what kind of performance increase would you expect to get?


btw how much is the 64bit XP

Great call.
Lets go on Strike http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

This would be a great improvement for cpu power.
a 64 extension of some sort, something like the P4 file inside the game already.

Theres a reviw of the 64 bit patch on firingsquad......i wouldnt know but id imagine Il2 would see a fairly substatial performace increase! especially as its more cpu dependant than farcry and farcry got a very good performance boost as well as the ability to increase view distance! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

First Dice/EA cut me off from BF2 (GF 4600) and now you lot screaming about 64 bit thingys.Stop the train to the future and let us stop here and smell the flowers and sip some water from the fresh,non pollution river and ponder about life and hug out love ones..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
