Wow what is this?I didnt know or hear anything about the add-on being called Aces Expansion pack.Is this because of the supposed major upgrade to the AI in FB that it will be called Aces?

Well UBI announces a different AI - under "features".

I know this might be a little too early to ask, but is the Aces Expansion pack going to require the same system specs as FB? Thx

"Completely revamped AI"

Now this is interestesting! Any idea what it could mean?

I noticed that they didn't mention the Spitfire on their list of planes (although I'm sure it will on there). Strange - I thought the Spit would be a big draw.

I see ACES requires DX9. I believe FB only required DX 8.1. Not sure what enhancements this might intale but its gotta be good. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I see the biplanes, Gladiator and Cr42 are listed as AI only, i was hoping at least for one of them would make it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

This is nice but must we pay for planes and maps that was in the 1.21 patch that sucks.

look here..

20 new flyable aircraft, including the American P-51 series, P-38, and YP-80; the German Me-163B, Ta-152H-1, Mistel, and Ho-229; the Italian Fiat G.50; and Japanese Ki-84 and A6 Zero.

hehe a ki-84 and a zero dont we have them already ?
the p51 i know there is coming a b and c model so no complaint about that.

7 non-flyable AI aircraft, including the Finnish Gloster Gladiators and Hawk 75, Italian Fiat CR.42, the American B-17, and the German V-1 rocket.

The B17 we have it already...

3 pristine environments - Ardennes, Normandy, and a special Pacific online map.

hehe same here we have those maps already..

Completely revamped AI, including original, 3D-modeled ground objects for each new map area.
7 immersive dynamic campaigns, using Forgotten Battles maps.
Innovative ranking and award campaign system.
20 edge-of-your-seat single-player missions, using new and existing maps.
10 cooperative multiplayer missions, using new and existing maps.

otherwise its nice and i will buy it..

Video card DX9 compatible? Does'it mean that my Gf4ti4200 (running FB even in perfect mode just fine) suddenly turns to crap?

Altitude, speed, manoeuvre and.... CRASH!

Even if they turn it into DX9 game, you will still be able to run it in DX8 mode, minus some eyecandy, ofcourse. The game should look like it does now.
