News Comments > IL-2 Forgotten Battles Ace Expansion Patch

6. Re: IL-2 May 19, 2004, 16:36  Nimh 
 
Is the first one (not forgotten battles, just IL-2) in the bargain bin yet? I like a good flying game here and there and this one looked like it had some nice graphics behind it too. Now with the added content its even more tempting to pick up...

The added content only works with Forgotten Battles + the Ace Expansion Pack. The original IL2 is no longer updated and includes none of the good stuff, but it's still an awesome sim. in it's own way.

Is it a good as everyone's been saying it was going to be for the last couple months?

Yes. This is amazingly good. The press demo is a little rough around the edges (TrackIR has tracking issues, etc.) but it doesn't matter. The simulator shines through in a major way.

I've been using for about a year with no issues either. It's nice to have options again.

I spent most of last evening playing this. Very awesome simulator. My best hot lap time is 2:24 in the GT. The target seems to be 2:15-ish (near real times for Spa).

Also check out the MOTEC program after you've finished a few laps.

It's a Ubi game so maybe they'll use the Far Cry engine? I'm sure they could work a better deal for the FC license than the UT license.

I think that stuff is sound related also. Maybe you guys can switch off the Audigy and test using the on-board AC97, but that's a horrible solution.

You may consider testing with alternative KX audio drivers for your Audigys.

KX drivers are here... http://kxproject.lugosoft.com/down.php?language=en

I think it might be sound-related, but I have no idea...I have an Audigy2 and a Radeon 9800.

Have you turned off hardware sound?

I have the same system ZigZang, except with a 9800 Pro.

I use Fraps to check frame rates, but you can also use the console and type: \r_displayinfo 1 (use 0 to turn it off).

I have textures on Medium, everything else on Very High except water... which is Ultra high. I'm playing at 1024x768 with 2xAA and 2xAF. My system averages 40-50 FPS with the very rare dip to 30 FPS. Very playable for a tactical shooter.

The ai is FarCry's claim to fame in my opinion. What difficulty level are you playing at? The difficulty effects the ai response rate and overall ability, not just health pickups like in most games.

The hardest level is the way to go if you want to get the most out of the game.

It was released in the US on March 3rd. Europe gets it in another week or so, not sure.

It doesn't seem as widely distributed as FB was so you may need to call ahead, or order online.

BTW... This is the best FB patch (expansion) ever!

F1 Challenge 99-02 can increase as much as 120 percent

I'm always amazed at the Nv performance increases in new drivers. It's a shame they got it so wrong in the older drivers. But hey... at least they fixed it.

The Russian developer actually made a post saying they'd offer ISO's to interested parties in the US. It was on their forum a while ago, I'm not sure if the offer still stands.

DVD is dead, it can't hold HD content. No point in having a DVD drive in a PC, simply a waste of money considering that the end is in sight.

They should put all their games on SACD.

Maybe this explains why both 1.02 and 1.03 README files were identical.

There is a good example of European logic, Europeans didn't invent computers, how would one expect you to use one?

Charles Babbage was European.

Good job on the plugin DooM! It's nice to see some main stream sites giving props to FireFox.

No, I think after this they're going to concentrate on the Battle of Britain game.
Nice, but I wish they'd done N Africa or Pacific instead.
I mean, they've already got Hurricanes, Stukas, 109s, 110s, He-111s, and Ju-88s in FB. All you need really is Spitfires and some Channel and England maps. I mean, I'm all for it, but it sounds like an expansion itself.


Maddox Games BoB title is all new models with an all new engine. The poly count is through the roof on this one, so that's why we won't see any "imports" from IL2 or FB.

I'll add another vote for Game of the Year.

Something I'd kinda like to see though would be enemy behavior slightly tweaked depending on player habits. For example I use almost exclusively rifles and I'm damn near unstoppable. It would be cool if the enemy could see my rifle stats and adjust tactics (from mission to mission) to counter my rifle behaivor(long range combat).

I'd simply crap my pants if I started a mission and the enemy advanced toward me by blasting holes in the side of buildings and using it for cover.
