And with Red Baron 2 they damn near had to [...] RB2 was unplayable. The game was broken beyond belief.
Ah, fair comment. I had actually forgotten about the issues RB2 had on release. I read the reviews, but I didn't have a PC that would run the thing at the time. I bought RB2 later on once I'd upgraded my PC and immediately patched it to its 'RB3D' form, so I never experienced those bugs myself.
Still, it turned out well in the end. It's almost incredible that such an old sim still holds the attention of so many virtual pilots (although doubtless more because there really hasn't been a good WW1 sim since... sigh... Knights Over Europe was looking so good...)
I also bet the RB2 developers would have been stunned into silence if they saw screens of Full Canvas Jacket ( http://www.plgrafix.com/
) when they were making RB2, and were told that one day their sim would look that good!
(speaking relatively of course, some of the community patches -- payware and freeware both -- perform minor miracles...)This comment was edited on Aug 31, 21:33.
