    4.03/.04/.05 were the ones where USN planes spun in circles from MG recoil. That only took a year(!)to fix. 4.01 was good. 4.02 was great for some planes and horrible for others.

    AEP era patches were some sort of comedy show.

    Most liked patch when we got Ju-87B2 flyable,
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
    v1.2 patch changes and additions:

    * New flyable: Messerschmitt Bf-109 E-7/Z German fighter.
    * New flyable: Yakovlev Yak-9 Soviet fighter.
    * New flyable: Yakovlev Yak-9D Soviet fighter.
    * New flyable: Junkers Ju-87 B-2 German attack plane.
    * The FW-109 A-4 altitude indicator now has the coarse dial operating properly.
    * Corrected speeds for the Yak-1, 1941 model. The corrected maximal speeds now are: 472 km/h at sea-level,
    and 569 km/h at 4.86 km.
    * As computer disk system may cause lags when repeatedly taking screenshots, in order to improve stability
    of the on-line gaming, the ability to take screenshots was limited to one per 10 seconds when playing on-line.

    I hate V4.02.

    Y`know, i can`t quite remember the number version I liked the most. It was one of the 4.XX. Anyway, it was the one where the main majority of the forum kept whining on about `wobble`.

    1.I had no trouble with `wobble` at all. another reason I liked it was that the AI FM was the best yet, the AI seemed to use it convincingly and seemed even able to make Human errors. The speeds were were slower and they were actually easier to engage. This fact alone meant the sim was more realistic, simply because it felt like I was tackling AI with the same abilities as Human online and not super-bots. that was the best patch ever.

    2.One thing I do know was when they `corrected` this with the very next Patch, AI suddenly turned into Tie-fighters and X-wings, zooming and spinning about the skies in an incredibly unrealistic fashion. that later patch was the worse for me. I even stopped playing IL2 for a while because of it.


    1. best.
    2. worst.

    I dunno what number it was, but it was in the days of the original IL2, and my buds and I used to do alot of co-ops.. The patch made the IL-2 and I assume other attack aircraft hardly able to gain altitude at all, if you had a decent size payload. It was sometimes impossible to take off the ground unless their was a hill going down at the end of the runway, and when starting in the air high, sometimes we couldnt keep the altitude and we'd over heat and drop anymore.. You really had to work your aircraft to even get to the target. I guess this was a bad patch for me, but I guess it was kind of fun too.

    Prior to that I didn't know what a patch was. Happier, simpler times.

    most hated: 4.09

    for ending the life of a great sim prematurely, before any replacement was available
