No FMB ,only available to an elite few who make missions for ROF, so you must have ROF to have any chance.

The game is still in development as well as the MB interface. It will be given after release.

This has nothing to do with owning ROF. They (777) have some ppl whom they can trust, and some of them are from RO community.

Maybe some hope after all:

We do hear you asking for the MB. We will give it to players when it's ready. We can't make it possible sooner that it's planned (even extra money wouldn't help much since it's about vacant specialists, not about paying more to the existing ones)"

So MB is the new name for the old type IL-2 "FMB" ?...anyway its good that we will get it at some point

As we know BOS uses the same FMB as ROF. The problem with the FMB is that its difficult to use, which garners alot of negative feedback for the sim. Which will draw less negativity, releasing the FMB as is, or not releasing the FMB, until its improved? The development is very wary of criticism, after watching the "criticism snowball" that "helped" kill the COD development. Not to mention IC will not suffer funding another long development, in a low profit niche market.

An FMB is crucial for the longevity and popularity of a sim. The development should invest the time and money to make the FMB more user friendly, but that can be very difficult when its invested all available funds in developing a working sim.

I think there is a chance for a better FMB if the sales of the initial release warrant further work on the sim, and they have someone in the development with the expertise to fine tune the FMB software.

I would say more than helped.

I actually prepurchased COD and it is still unopened in the box. Never been loaded. Not because of any worries about the game but because by the time it turned up I simply refused to be involved in such a toxic community of negative entitled whiners.

Ironically I went to play EVE instead, a game renowned for its harsh community and found them much less negative than the COD crowd.

Battle of Stalingrad
 
I have this game as well as Cliffs of Dover and in mho I really think that Cliffs has a far better game engine, in fact it's the best graphics of all of the simulators.

Leningrad does have a nicely contrived gaming experience but the cockpit graphics along with other things leave a lot to be desired..
I would much rather be flying the BF 109 in COD ;)...

I wonder if they'll actually ever get around to do something about this issue??
