So the initial joy of buying PF has begun to wear away a little for you folks across the pond . . . (maybe, but from what I see, probably not!) Well, it is now on Tsisqua's machine, and I am all blurry-eyed from trying to land the Corsair on a static carrier . . . all night http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

It went like this:
Telephone: ring, ring, ring

Me: Hello?

Voice: Hey, it's Mike at Sam Goody's. Your "Pacific Battles" game is here.

Me: I'll be there as soon as my wife get's home to watch the kids. I'm sorry that I have been calling you every day. I'm also sorry that I hung out there at your store for hours, being a general pain.

Mike: Naw, you are not a problem . . . now this one kid that was waiting on "Doom 3", now he was a pain.

Me: Well, some guys play golf for a hobby, and apart from work and family, it may be the most important pastime that they enjoy. The combat simulations from 1C are that way for me.

Mike: I know that by now, Larry (duh!)

So, Mrs. Tsisqua gets home, and off I go to the shop, about 10 minutes away. I get the game, and come home with a plan: My Ti4200 Asylum is in my machine, and I am really wanting to see this on my 9800 Pro. The problem is that it has been running hot. I get home with the intentions of, first, installing PF over FB, and then, providing the install goes ok, taking the Asylum card out and replacing it with my 9800 Pro. I stole my daughter's small high-velocity room fan (it is small, yet very powerful!), removed the case cover, and placed this tiny wind-machine outside the case, aimed directly at my card. (An arctic cooler solution is in my future) I was able to play all night on perfect settings with no overheat. Yahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Come on, Guys! I know that this is a lengthy post, but I've been reading what you folks have been saying for a month, so hang in there with me.)

Problems:
CD/DVD emulation software has been detected . . . AAArrrrgggg! I am a musician, and a recording artist! (on a small scale) I use Daemon tools to burn images of my own cd's, darnit! It is much easier than setting the cd up from the beginning all over again. This is LEGAL! Oh, well, it's nice to know that software pirates won't be affected by this, as they have ways around it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif It's the honest people that this puts the screws to. I uninstall Daemon Tools, and same thing. MAN! What now? Oh, yeah. I use clone cd to burn my images. LEGALLY, once again! Sigh! Ok, uninstalled Clone. "This had better be worth it!" I think.

Finally . . . Oh . . . My . . . Gawd!!!!!!!!
Suddenly, I forget about my woes. I was simply expecting to see the same IL2, with a different theatre available . . . yeah, new planes, carriers . . . etc., ok, a new game based on IL2. Well, the improvements in graphics, flight models (yes, they are BETTER, imo), music, . . . well, I am blown away! Oleg, Ilya, and all of 1C; I want to say "thank you", and congratulations on taking the last steps toward making this a truly global simulation of WWII arial combat. I was so looking forward to the Corsair, and wasn't disappointed, but OMG, the Wildcat is just beautiful! The cockpit is sooooo nice, yet simple. The pixle count has to be up there! I can fly it with only minor corrections to target, as it should be with any plane (trim is your friend). And I FEEL the same thrill as when I fly the PA28 in RL. (I know, I know, it isn't a warbird . . . well, it IS an airplane)


I will be very busy.

Congratulations, 1C, and, oh yeah, Ubi . . . find another way to protect 1C's work and your money. In case you hadn't noticed, the movement started here by Bearcat99 probably did more to prevent piracy than all the PIA you caused my with your copy protection.

Much thanks, Udidtoo.

Seafire, as long as I have been enjoying all of your work here, you have almost single handedly kept me from being bored, but I am happy for you, that you can now fly your "name's sake" plane. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I had the 1607 error, involving corrupted Windows Installer. I saw I would be spending more time reading the deepening levels of internet instructions than re~installing Windows, so...la la...FP installed smooth and sweet, all files backed up so I lost nothing. WUAF~Badsight was right, I still have FB and I lost nothing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Interesting, the UBI liscense agreement states the ownership of all game "levels" belongs to UBI....Oleg, more levels please...!!
