But still some people got the sim, put all the slide to Max and then started complaining about performance issues.

Go figure!
Did Oleg say that before the 2006 release date? Or maybe the 2008 one?

I agree, I played it from the start on:

i7 920 2.67Ghz
2GB RAM
NVidia GeForce GTS 250 1GB
Win XP

The processor ain't bad but the graphics card and memory are pretty low spec compared to most of you guys. Not perfect but very enjoyable experience all the same. The crashes are annoying I admit but I know they'll address that in the near furture.

They've given me a taste of what they're aiming for and it's definitely something worth the wait. It'll be a kick ass sim just like IL2 given a little time and patience. Remember...good things come to those who wait.

Default Playable?

Ok these are examples not quotes, rant/ton o text below.

Playable is very subjective. Some ppl are fine with 10fps others need 60fps and comparring Cod to a game with a big budget and two years old to CoD is unfair. Sure Mass Effect2 or whatever plays great/80 fps on all kinds of pc configs but thats completly different. Also whoever said CoD is not playable is dead wrong! maybe it doesnt play on there pc or doesnt have all the stuff IL2 does after 10 years but then they should write a letter to there pc telling it to upgrade and it sucks cuz it doesnt play todays games at max or wait 10 years and come back when CoD is "finished" oh wait they can do that with il2 now!

On the other hand there are several other games on the market today that no hardware exists to max them out, I wish more ppl would keep that in mind when they decide to tell the world not to play/buy the last realistic ww2 cfs in the world cause it doesnt play on there hardware(or maybe it does but there to lazy to fresh install there hdd or tweak there settings properly).

Also from what I have seen if you have a 32 bit OS or less then 1gb vram/4gb ram you will struggle more then others.

Default Yup Playable

Yup It's Playable for 25 to 35 minutes...right up to the crash or freeze... Thats what we see in MP.. I have had flights of over an hour single player..but that is still rare. Nothing worse than working a dogfight..get the bandit in your gunsight...about to pull the trigger and BAM! Freeze/Crash...

For me and our group it is MP we most enjoy...Too frustrating right now so It's shelved for now... Back to IL2 4.11 for BoB.. Maybe one day CLOD will become stable... Until then...there are many good Sims to fly

Sure would be nice to get another Friday update...been almost a month..At least tell us of any progress on the launcher error... That is the game killer

A copy and paste from the email:

So, to save money - 11.00am 29th Feb - and click the link...

troll, thanks for the tip

i grabbed one for myself (tired of doing the russian dll shuffle at each patch), and told a few other people who still had been sitting on the fence,

at 14.99$ cant really go wrong, and good to support the ongoing work being done in the patch fixing

If 1C (or Ubisoft... or whoever the publisher is) would release a 'version 2' of the Collectors Edition once the next major patch is out and go back on a marketing blitz, especially in the US, I'd think they'd have a good shot at pulling in some more retail numbers. Send the patched, updated code out to all the US review sites, advertise, sponsor a few events, advertise some more, etc.

I'd like the sim to put up better sales numbers, and I'd like the chance to own a copy of the collectors edition without importing it from Europe.

Man, oh man - I had been on the fence ever since release from reading the forums - had enjoyed IL2 1946 immensely, and IL2 FB with PF before that, but had taken a break from it even for the past year , finally got the itch and reading up seemed like it was at least improved somewhat since original release, and apparently a big graphics udpate coming that sounds like will improve performance drastically. So I finally decided it was time, and just purchased it direct from Steam at full price, about 2 days ago.
I sure wish I had gotten the itch again and checked this out a couple of weeks sooner, this would have been a sweet deal!
Just my luck though, things like that seem to always happen to me...
