IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover Patch/DRM Fix

Steam News announces a new automatic patch is now available for IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover, 1C: Maddox Games' combat light simulator. The new version includes a large list of changes, as well as a DRM fix, described like so: "Solidshield protection was removed from the game. The game no longer requires a second authentication key. Cliffs of Dover only needs to be authenticated once with a single key during first install. NOTE: this action is automatic and does not require any action from the player."

The patch was a massive improvement, much better than I expected. I have an ancient rig, Core Duo 2.66 with an 8800 GTX, and I couldn't play before at all. Now I get a playable framerate even at medium settings, and if I turn off trees I get 70-100 FPS.

If the game was released today instead of last week, they could have saved themselves so much bad publicity.
