Cheers Mr B,
Yep, I'm just keen for the patch for perhaps different reasons than most because:
- CloD runs ok on my machine, graphic-wise. I can get annoyed on others behalf that it crashes or doesn't run that well, but obviously there's only so far my empathy can last when I get to fly ok.
- When this patch is out hopefully the title can move on, as I feel we're just treading water at the moment i.e. get an SDK out, let people start hacking away at it. I've seen lots of PC titles where the devs go run and hide about 15 minutes after pushing it out the door, so if this is some sort of 'long con' then it's the worse one I've ever seen. I subscribe to the 'perhaps inept, but not evil' school of thought.
- Time-wise there are so many decent things to play recently (both sim and non-sim) and while I do wrinkle an occasional brow that the Russian software team making the Russian market-leading air sim has rudely chose to base the sequel in Russia rather than the Med, I'd not reach for the either extreme of pom poms or pistols over it.
After the patch, if the graphics engine gets a good going over then the next major complaint will be the single player AI and campaign (re:every other sim ever) or some other drama that will involve much rage over why the Fuel Truck has a playable cockpit while the Wellington hasn't..
