I've had no crashes in about one hours play.
It seems to me that a considerable amout of ground effect is now present when landing.
When damnaged on the ground I had a total doubele cockpit in the spitfire IIA Al the controlls doubled up i think normal and single decals?
I've seen maybe some improvement on performance esecially when looking back while taking off at the dust I used to have 17 fps in that situation now its 24.
The warmupin the siptIIA is differnt to it wil rev up some but not to take off power immedaetely.
Mirror is still unusable.
It seems to be easyer to pick up palnes at a distance.
I dint see ghost planes up to now.
So performance wise some but not really notisable.
Settings 1920 X 1080
Always 64bit
No stutters (asbefore)
Two freezes in one hour both .5 sec.
Lookingaround seems to be more fluent.
FM feels like a plane to me clear decrease in performance of brit planes.
Trees are stil shimmering as are the shadows.
VIsually it dint change any in my opinion.
Game was smooth before and still is.

Will update.

On a different board the discussion seemed to indicate that pre patch the CDTs concerned only 32bit OS (I rarely experienced CDTs on my 64bit OS).

I would like to know if those who now experience CDTs on their 64 bit OS did this also before the patch.
While I've not installed the beta, and won't, I am running Win 7 Pro 64 and always had the CTD problem.

Personally speaking, the P-40 could contend on an equal footing with all the types of Messerschmitts, almost to the end of 1943.

Just had a mid-air collision with a 110 in my Spitfire 1a. The 110 was totally destroyed, Spit unscathed.

Previously I experienced my Spitfires being destroyed in mid-air collisions while 109s/110s and Stukas flew on, so a definite improvement here Devs. Good work!

No crashes. AA is working. Performance is better here.

My observations after 2 hours offline in a Spitfire Ia; some already mentioned, some not:
  • No audio from rear speakers. I have a 4.0 setup. The sound returned once I removed the patch.
  • 90% sure the airframe stress noise can be heard with prop set coarse.
  • I also have the Spit throttle problem. Jumps to +5.
  • FPS drops dramatically with bullet hit smoke.
  • Tons of glare on the Spit prop with sun behind; i thought it was white smoke a first.
  • Prop seems to stutter visually. Might be me, but it looks odd.
  • Ground textures lower quality?
  • Instruments low res at normal zoom.
  • Grass looks sparse or not drawn as far from the camera. Could be my perception, but again it just looked odd. Definitely struggled to see grass when flying low.
  • FPS increased dramatically over built up areas.
  • No CTD's (didn't have these previously)

We seem to have traded a lot for higer FPS. I've removed the patch for now, but looking forward to the release version.

Well after a few hour testing what it should give us a increase of +50% in performance, all i got is the same as before, it is very sad that patch after patch is still the same and with every new patch the game is more cut out less features and more bugs, this is just another placebo patch with nothing more than empty words, EIGHT YEARS, EIGHT YEARS and we paid for nothing hope devs had much luck stealing money for more fools like me with that sequel, hope for the better that this project will be shoot down a 1C give us any other game for the 49 dollars we had paid for this piece of **!

AH i almost forgot my report on the patch

I have to say I do have better fps with this patch. Enough to notice. Stuttering is still there and the shimmering is even worse than before. Shimmering is actually really hideous.

Edit: Launcher crashes every time I use a res that is not the same as desktop.

Spits Ia and IIa's throttle is completely screwed up...how did something so obvious and seemingly easily configurable get missed?

Why am I able to maintain 2k feet per minute climb at 230mph with just 20% throttle? It seems the throttle scaling has been shrunken down by 60%. 10% throttle sends you flying out of the hangar immediately. Almost impossible to operate when you don't have a HOTAS throttle system and you have to use the keyboard to adjust throttle in 5% increments only.
