In the context of this forum, what the ROF guys want and need is for simmers to judge their project based on its merits.
The hopes are that flight sim fans will like what they see, that Il-2 fans, and Red Baron fans, and First Eagles fans, and LOMAC fans, and EAW fans, and Longbow fans, and yes, OFF fans, etc., will all want to be part of this new ROF world.
The last thing the publishers and developers of ROF want, is for this project to be thought of as a niche product by the flight sim community. I think most sim fans are looking forward to flying ROF, and hopefully that's where we'll come together in the not too distant future.
Yes, I agree with these sentences.and I would appreciate that those who condemn my points of view would judge on the words I have written, and not on what they think it is that i am really saying.
Unlike the modern world, ( usually politics etc ) what I mean is what i write- not what you think i really mean. For instance, how many of you really think I mean it when I say I agree with what FR says above. If you're careful, you will see I have omitted some of what he said, and that is because I don't fully agree with it.
I am being considered trollish because I critisized the prolonged silence from the devs, to the extent that some thought it meant this sim was vapourware. That would be unreasonable if there was not a long silence- but you know there was - and it was on a thread which was started by the devs.
But because I said so, I was trollish.
Again, many on this thread said (WTTE ) they were really looking forward at last to a WW1 sim they could fly. Frankly, I thought it a good idea to point them towards OFF, as it seemed they clearly hadn't tried it, or even knew about it.
And for me to have an opinion that impractical ( for me ) or damaging DRM would mean i wouldn't buy the sim, if the DRM was of such a nature, - that too was trollish?
Do you really want just "fanboys" posting here?
And Big Bouncer- if i say that I want ROF to be successful, because i would like all flight sims, particularly WW1 sims, to be exactly that, then I mean it.
I would like to buy the DVD, install it and find my offline PC can play it fully. I don't want to copy the DVD or anything like that- just put the DVD in the PC everytime I go to play ROF.
To find that the graphics are like the video, with good FPS and good AI and good FM,DM and sound -
That'll do for me.
But, before then, having seen this forum's threads, I'm entitled to be wary.
