    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)

    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.

    I agree.

    I voted for 25%. There is always some confusion about something, but when filtered out it becomes quite clear . 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



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