hyperlobby had its place and I hope Steam replaces it.

Couldn't have said it better myself, hyperlobby is a great tool but unfortunately it has started to shows its age and i had multiple problems using in on vista, seems to work better with windows 7

Nice to hear that, hope they keep it in that way so we can choose....

If that it's the case, then we have hopes....

I love hyperlobby, and don't want Steam's lobby.

Online IL2 whitout hyperlooby it's like IL2 without BF109.

That's still an IF, but it will probably be the main reason for me to use a custom-made community server browser that's specifically tailored to a flight sim game. You know, a detailed list that mentions the server's difficulty settings, what kind of scenarios it runs, what kind of mods it might support, etc.

A few weeks ago Oleg Maddox confirmed this will be possible at a later date. Later date meaning "the tools are there, someone from the community just needs to use them to support it", so it's highly possible we'll see it in Hyperlobby and other server browsers as well.

All in all, the Steam fans can use their favorite platform and we'll probably be able to use whatever interface suits us best too. It's exactly statements like that coming from official sources that make me doubt the necessity of Steam. It seems it's not necessary for the game to work, just for those that already like it, and that's why i'll be bypassing it first chance i get as long as the rest of the game functions properly without it.

Cod was not written around Steam, there is probably some small program that will handle all the interaction between Steam and the Game.

BTW Why are so many people registering just to post how much they hate steam?
Bit weird that.
