    Who really cares anymore?...I mean really. This is rapidly becoming one of the more boring games around, which has lost the bulk of it's former charm and appeal.

    PF was the one big opportunity to make a fresh and exciting restart for the Il2 series but that chance was blown for reasons that becomes all too obvious in playing PF itself.
    Another patch could be compared to the 20th facelift that permits an aging actress one more curtain call...and most actors learn the brutal reality that when they stay onstage for too long they loose their audience as the goodwill fades away.

    It's about time ,I'm thinking, to put the Il2 series on the shelf with CSFs and move on to the more exciting sims on the near horizon.

    If you take exception to this about all I can propose is the old truism that declares that truth and honesty are indeed often painful. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>


    Are you talking about Wings Of Victory?It may be nice, time will show.I'm lookin forward to it. Anyway, the original Il-2 is in some aspects far better then the FB/AEP/PF, but i play the merged version for the other aspects - Pacific, lots of planes, etc.It hasnt' became boring yet and i think it will be my favorite game for long.And for some people the whinning about the date of next patch release seems to be more importand and interesting then the game.The same with comparing flight models by "armchair experts"...It's just a game, don't expect perfection.it is a very good game,though.

    No one shall ask about a patch in 2 weeks period! then we will have a patch. If you have already asked, the "2 weeks test" started again. Sorry, that is a rule

    You guys are all a bunch of dopes. Didn't anyone read Oleg's comments that it would be ready around the end of February? Geez...

    On a completely unrelated note, does anyone know if I will get better FPS if I install the IL2 1.04b patch into my merged PF/AEP/FB/IL2/whateverthe!@#$itisnow directory? Thanks a mint!

    Thats so true...sadly...
    lately ive been enjoing the original IL2-Sturmovik ..which is in many aspect far better game than FB-AEP-PF will ever be...that you can call a simulator..
    and now im experimenting with cfs3+firepower pack +TIR 3 6 DOF.. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>


    Though I've not purchased CFS3,mainly because of bad press, I see there's a new add-on coming out for it.

    Titled....believe it or not....Battle of Britain.

    Now...talk about beating a dead horse....what's this make now...something like 3 new BoB releases due in the comng year?


    How about something fresh like the Spanish civil war or a good WWI flight sim?...been a long, long time since Red Baron.

    In answer to the above inquiry... the release I'm expecting in the next few days is SHIII and will ground the Il2 planes for me for the foreseeable future.

    And there are others coming out both flight sim and other WWII era releases that sound very appealing.

    It's all part of a tie-in marketing campaign for the Billy Fiske movie starring Tom Cruise. Be sure !

    It would be different if this game was being given away for free. I assume we all paid for this. What if it was a car, and we had been asked to wait "2 weeks" (?) for the seat belts? Would everyone be sitting around saying "Be patient..."? They got your money. They didn't give us the option of letting them wait "2 weeks" for the rest of the money we paid. They didn't tell us on the box OR ON THE WEB SITE AS OF TODAY that the game isn't complete as advertised. I would fall for this if the web site promoting the game had removed references to the missing maps and missing planes, but they are still being advertised as being included. This is what I have a problem with. It is false advertising in the worst sort of way.
