Fair enough statements about the micro-stutters. Right decision not to release any more bugged offerings. Average screenshots of unaliased aircraft over average ground textures. Yes its all WIP but we are back to screenshots of a game in development. Looks a lot like the sort of stuff we were looking at in Friday updates 2 years ago tbh.

Reminds me mightily of IL2:1946 modded....but with terrible graphic settings.

We need some "WoW Factor" !!!!

I would like to see the patch too but I don't feel it's unplayable, actually it runs really good on my system with med-high settings but it is rather blah at the moment.
I think Luthier is properly humble about the problems they are having and wise not to fuel the fire by giving in to temptation and releasing anything too soon.

Mmm.. In my mind they are honest enough to admit the patch isn't quite ready, so it is probably not a good idea to release it prematurely.. Hats off to them for that.
But looking at the screens I find myself totaly underwhelmed.. I'm not convinced by them at all, which is sad.
The terrain doesn't help either.. if this is supposed to be the 'showpiece new title' then there is much work to do.

No I don't think they have any motivation to 'Wow' anyone at this point. They seem to have assumed a 'lowest common denominator' stance, I would too, maybe. It's probably better to have people #%&*$# and complain about being undewhelmed than overwhelmed

Being underwhelmed is only my view of course.. however, over on banana central you have 'fantastic', 'awesome' and 'epic' pics..
What exactly is so epic about the pics they have chosen to show is beyond me.. I must be missing something.

They may really like the Eastern Front campaign and the aircraft in it. A lot of people learnt to love the IL2 Sturm etc.

Im slightly bermussed by all the "WOW" and "OOHHH" posts as well, its just a IL2 over the same terrain as we have now but white.
And i see the whole new IL2 series will not feature FSAA or DX11.

Pleased the patch is "almost finished" again though.

Still worried about other fixes taking another year or getting them at all.

Not much there today, I think folks are just trying to prevent another melt down.

I did like the Fall terrain colors, the winter terrain looks about a good as you can make blah winter terrain. I would suspect that people working on the AI, etc features were given new builds to start implementing, testing, fixing, their improvements. That should make those feature patches come sooner after the performance/graphics patch is released for testing.

It's the lack of a Sarcasm button, that or they've all lost their minds..

"What exactly is so epic about the pics they have chosen to show is beyond me.. I must be missing something."

Me too, I don't understand the zealots of the Banana forum.

It looks so like IL-2 from ten years ago, rough aircrafts, poor ground textures, Velvia colors, poor clouds etc...
Very disappointing.

Yes I see what you mean TROOPER. I was okay with the pics, but we'll see what the final product looks like. I don't think they're trying to impress anyone anymore

Well I'm glad that they are posting something rather than hiding in their bunker but it still sounds like they are a way off sorting out the new graphics engine. Last week it was gunsights and tracers as the final hurdle and this week its particle effects ? B6 is talking of them not wanting to release a patch that would be criticised, someone needs to tell them that they could release a brand new version of the game that has fixes across the board, for free and hand deliver it and somebody will still have a moan.

As to BoM I understand the commercial reasons for it but it just doesn't do it for me.
