After Fearless_Frog and Heinkill left this forum, I'm now following them. They were among those I found the most fun in this forum and with them and others gone, I don't see any point in staying here either.

For quite a while the trolling in here has become intolerable. It has become impossible to actually talk about the sim. I have talked to the mods, who also think it is a big problem, but they don't want to do anything about it. I can see that it can be difficult to do something effective about the issue, but why they have been happy to have trolls and haters constantly coming in here with totally off-topic spam is beyond me.

Anyway, SimHQ is no longer a place in which it is possible to come and talk about CoD. I'm heading off over to the 1C forums, where there is a lively and interesting scene around the sim. I'm learning something new every time I go over there and I really like it. Here at SimHQ, the forum is dominated by the trolls and haters, who even come to brag about how often they have been banned at the 1C forum, when they don't continuously insist on badmouthing the developers in the most disgusting personal attacks.

However, I don't really accuse the moderators of anything. They are unpaid fans just like everybody else. It is just that the ratio of useful exchanges to absolute spam has tilted very heavily to the negative side. It is just a waste of time to come here.

I'll keep making movies, but I will not post them here. This forum is not one I want to be connected to. I respectfully ask that members here do not re-post a link to my future movies in this forum. Those who want to see them can find them elsewhere or directly on my youtube page (see signature).

I'm a bit sad that it will be seen as a "win" by the haters that their constant spamming has managed to chase everybody else out of here. But, hey, that is the way it is: those few people definitely made this place insufferable for everyone. The site staff didn't want to do anything about it, because they wanted "balance". Well, the end result is anything but balance, because a lot of good people decided to leave. I'm not one of them, but I'm following them, because this place is no longer worth it and I value my time too much to waste it here.

Thanks to all who tried to make this a nice place to come and who posted interesting content,

Cheers,
Freycinet.

I also value your time too highly for you to waste it here smile

More seriously, it appears you are feeling sorry for yourself and hoping for some sort of fanfare.

As chief 'hater', both in terms of what it is you 'hate', and the use of the word, I wish you sucess over in the other forum. But I also happen to think if you adopt the same tone over there as here, you wont last long.

In reality, you are probably slightly embarrassed of your persona here, and this is a way of saving face possibly?

At the end of the day it's all just yacking about a (not very good yet) game, and you should have toned down the attacks a bit. That is what lies at the core of it.

Really? Just over the internet? I'm surprised at how grown men can take such things so seriously.

Anyway, take care...

Ya when FearlessFrog left it was a real blow to this community. Heinkkill as well. We have only a handful of members who appear to be putting some effort into enjoying this game, but these are becoming fewer and fewer.

Does ANYONE actually take this guy seriously whatsoever ? LOL !

Sounds like the classic Drama Queen Ploy

anyone want to start a informal betting pool how soon he will be back ? hahaha

He'll leave when the government abolishes taxes and the rich finally decide they have enough money now and to share some of their wealth with the rest of us.

No doubt many will blame the so called "haters" for this trend, rather than look at the actual state of the sim itself.

If the sim was great and what it was promised to be there wouldn't be a whole lot of people out there hating it I can tell you that.

Not like they're are now.

Frey is a drama queen yes, but the majority of poster above are hypocrites...

@Frey

I decided to take a break from the banana forums for a while, I grew tired of the same tools posting the same cry baby post again and again frown (so yes I am a drama queen as well)

Its a pitty though I enjoy your vids, hopefully we will see more when the games fixed and the haters have gone off to hate on something else... thumbsup

P.S. The game is AMAZING loving it just wish they would hurry up with the sound patch, kills the immersion.

I think Bisher inadvertently hit the nail on the head when he said, "We have only a handful of members who appear to be putting some effort into enjoying this game".

When you have to make an effort to enjoy a PC game then something is fundamentally wrong.

This comment is a good example of what I outlined in the other thread....If in your mind it's a bygone conclusion, then why continually reiterate your views on this? I think we all understand which camp everyone is in.

On the other hand the OP should have known that these people would come to the wake.

As a moderator, it's frustrating. Unless someone violates the TOS, threads and posts stand.

I'm sick of this sim and I don't even have it yet.


The opinions of this poster are largely based on facts and portray a possible version of the actual events.

Two-thousand-five, I agree this game does require some effort to get good results and I'm okay with this, many aren't and that's okay too.

'When you have to make an effort to enjoy something then something is fundamentally wrong.'

I think two-thousand-five has inadvertantly described what is fundamentally wrong with our society today.

That sums it up beautifully.

A very few of us actually do enjoy putting in an effort to make an ACKNOWLEDGED flawed, broken, imperfect simulation enjoyable. We also enjoy sharing the various tips, mods, fixes, screenshots, videos, etc. with others of like mind. This sim's detractors resent these efforts and repeatedly express themselves accordingly. It kills the enjoyment, be sure.

The detractors of Cliffs of Dover have won out on this forum. Free speech prevails. Yippee.

To me it's just a bit like buying a fancy new brand of beer because other people are buying it, drinking it and finding it's a bit flat and has a odd after taste. You complain on one of the beer tasters forums about these facts and the company and the some of the forum members say they're working on it but you just haven't tried hard enough to like it.

In other words it's your fault.

Snapper the same thing happens in reverse, this sims advocators resent anyone who dares post something remotely negative and will repeatedly attack them. Oh wait, it's happening again... see a trend starting. It is a forum, people of opposite opinions tend to hang out here.

What you fail to see, 2005, is that your negative comments are not bringing anything new to the forum - it's just a continual rehash of complaints that drags down any positive new information about Cliffs of Dover - the afore mentioned tips, screenshots, videos, mods, etc. This forum is being reduced to the lowest common denominator - the same stinking morass of repeated (I repeat: repeated) complaints. To what end? Will Luthier stumble in at some point and realize that a bunch of SimHQ members are really unhappy about Cliffs of Dover? That Luthier will suddenly pull his thumb out and fix everything because of this? Really??

What IS happening is that the main CONTRIBUTORS to this sim have either left or are about to. Gone. Nothing new to see here folks, move along. All that's left are the complainers with nothing to contribute. And this is a good thing?

I am really sorry you are going to quit Freycinet. Your movies are perhaps the only reason I am visiting this forum. They sums up perfectly all the greatness of the game. Enjoy it every time I saw them and spent hours playing similar scenarios after watching them.

I feel partly the same way. I joined this forum years ago to get away from the idiots on the ubi forum. This used to be a place where there was always a good debate going on. Now it has swung the other way. I spend more time reading the 1C forum because there and just loads more Sim related posts. Personally I think that people were put off posting here due to the massive amount of garbage filling this forum up on a daily basis and nothing got done about it.

Im pretty sure all of us(maybe not nuggs) would like to be talking about playing COD, but because of its flaws or bugs or something else, were not. i could write a list but im trying to be positive.
So when the sim is fixed(positive) and lots and lots of people are flying then we will have much more to talk about.

The new Il-2 series is a WIP and hopefully it will be for another 10 to 15 years. Many people haven't gotten over the fact that the sim was released before it was finished. This forum will stay in a very negative state until the sim dies, or has seen more than a few decent patches. Unfortunately its the nature of the beast, and it doesn't take more than a few who feel the need to constanly remind us of the state of the sim.

Without pointing fingers at anyone just in this post alone it illustrates what Frey is talking about, maybe he is being dramatic but WTF is anyone here actually a functional adult? Can people discuss a Game in these forums without acting like a bunch of spoiled entitled children? I mean I have gone to a lot of Forums and this one is really no different although it's better than the banana boards, I see people posting Demands and threaten Lawsuits over what the developer "owes" them, really? I just can't believe anyone truly is that ridiculous but, hey they are people and people are strange.
Frey, take a break dude. you are having a bad day it's just the internet you'll get over it. Everyone does eventually.

LoL, such melodrama, our sim is failing, it's the detractors fault.

Oh and if you think the 1C forum is full of nothing but deranged fanbois, think again.


Very true! I just visited their forum just to see if it was a fanboy haven as I thought it might be.

I was wrong. I read through just one thread on FM/DM and found there are posters that are very critical of

the game that can rival anyone here. Thats a good thing because the devs cant say they are not aware of the games

issues with aircraft pefrormance, which is the single biggest show stopper for me.

Of course you have to deny and ridicule this possibility, but it is so.
But as you are prone to "not putting a effort in" that goes well with the fact that creating is much harder then destroying.

I'm learning something new every time I go over there and I really like it. Here at SimHQ, the forum is dominated by the trolls and haters, who even come to brag about how often they have been banned at the 1C forum, when they don't continuously insist on badmouthing the developers in the most disgusting personal attacks.

However, I don't really accuse the moderators of anything. They are unpaid fans just like everybody else. It is just that the ratio of useful exchanges to absolute spam has tilted very heavily to the negative side. It is just a waste of time to come here.

I'll keep making movies, but I will not post them here. This forum is not one I want to be connected to. I respectfully ask that members here do not re-post a link to my future movies in this forum. Those who want to see them can find them elsewhere or directly on my youtube page (see signature).

I'm a bit sad that it will be seen as a "win" by the haters that their constant spamming has managed to chase everybody else out of here. But, hey, that is the way it is: those few people definitely made this place insufferable for everyone. The site staff didn't want to do anything about it, because they wanted "balance". Well, the end result is anything but balance, because a lot of good people decided to leave. I'm not one of them, but I'm following them, because this place is no longer worth it and I value my time too much to waste it here.

And many of those same folks complained inperpetuity about the release date being pushed back.

So you see it really is all a game of getting one's goat. The group has a gander at the forum every morning over tea.. like it was some sort of gossip column. - Frantically looking for any new figment to stoke a flame. Kind of like paparazzi following folks around on their mopeds.


It's a Game. smile

Tree I have yet to see you post a bug etc that has not already being mentioned, so are you helping in anyway and if you think you are all that does is show how far you have your head up your ass... which is surprising given how over inflated it is..... blahblahblah

Oh dear. Soon the only people left will be those that criticize this unfinished game and want it completed.

Tell you what, I will be a lot nicer than you or some of your friends ever were with the name calling, subtle

inferences and character attacks on people that have critiqued this game. As I stated I continue to hope and think

the devs will finish this game and in time it will be the great Air combat Simulator we all hoped for. I wont quit

unless they do. I think thats fair enough. So when CoD is finished, come on back and you will find the one time

critics are fans of the game enjoying it with relish.

So what, you need a clap on the back for finding a wrong? And a thank you? The patches are the "thank you".
To find it and to report it is right and good, but to report the same error again and again isn't.
The devs might or might not take this wrong as serious as you do and act accordingly.
That you'll find out with the next patch, or the patch after, or the next, or never.
Fact is, that the devs are working to solve the problems and already have improved the sim a lot.

LoL, such melodrama, our sim is failing, it's the detractors fault.


Well, I thought the "stinking morass" bit was pretty good.......

The sim is failing is the developers' fault, not the detractors. If it's released in its current state to the US and the rest of the Americas on July 19th the howling will be heard up on the ISS. This FORUM is failing because of the detractors (a better term, IMHO, than haters). We're losing some excellent creative contributors who bring fresh material to this forum because of the detractors who are dragging everyone down into their......stinking morass of refried whining complaints. biggrin

Oh, now i understand, all the advertizing companies worldwide doing it wrong to promote something.
If you want something to have success you must critisize it remorseless and badmouthing it, thats the way to do it.
Only bad press promotes something.
And all people who already see something good must be ridiculed, because they are a hindrance on the way to a bestseller.
The devs already made enough money to finance another 10 years of further developement, so thats no problem.

I've stopped wondering...

I disagree with you on this. If the problem or bug is reported and the devs admit it and give feedback telling

us it will be fixed, fine we can stop repeating it. Right now many of the issues are not even being admitted let

alone promised to be fixed. If the devs dont take the bug or problem as serious as the users do, then they should.

We are the ones paying for their product. They work for us. Until we get feedback from them that a bug is being fixed,

we ought to continue complaining. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease"

TBH i think that your whining reached such a crescendo in such a short space of time and in such an ugly way that only dogs can hear the squeaking now... But don't worry MG always grease the wheels eventually.

Please don't tell me that you actually think the devs aren't aware of all the shortcomings of their baby?
Do you really have to be told about every little deail that they intend to fix?
Do you really believe the devs intend to leave errors in their product?
If you do, i feel sorry for you.

Does anyone remember the film Shane? The ending seems so much like Freys post... apart from noone is shouting come back.


Its a pity that Frey has decided to go but its reflects badly on this forum and its members that people can post like this.

Also you must have selective vision as I read a few posts that said they were sad to see him go... what it must be like to live life with so much negativity I feel sorry for you tree frown


Dont feel sorry for me Krupi, im ok honestly, and no matter how hard you try im not going to start disliking you.


Good, with friends like mine who would want enemies biggrin

I just don't understand why you feel the need to complain about the same problem 2,000,000 times a week...

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results..."

I agree that there lack of communication is annoying, but I can't help but get the feeling that someone is twisting luthiers arm.

It really isn't too hard to understand.

Even with all the great press in the world and all the fan boys of the world singing it's praise if it doesn't live up to it's grand expectation's that oleg himself engendered in people's minds regularly people will not like it and the word will get around it's isn't as was advertised and not all what it was cracked up to be.

That's just a fact.

It is what it is.

Hopefully it will be reincarnated into a better product

Well apart from the lack of polish the game is exactly what I expected and wanted it be... Il2 1946 with great graphics and more complex engine management.

Hey Robtek! The world is not a Dilbert cartoon buddy!! You cant advertise and promote the "mockup". You have to

have a finished product. You cannot sell the mockup. The people that see something good with an unfinished "mockup"

of a product do not have to be ridiculed, those are your words. You can take any product in the world; Fords, Boeing aircraft,

apple computers, whatever! The best most positive advertising and hype and marketing in the world is not going to do any good

if the product is half finished.

Actually Dilbert is like the world its true, that's what makes it so funny...

How many games have recently come out with "Dx11 support" only to find out it will only be added a few months later via a patch... biggrin (Total War, Crysis 2 to name a few...)

Anyone here remember the Strike Fighters forum circa late 2002 thru 2003? That became a cesspool of haters and backers that eventually drove away the community because of the constant bickering. Those that were playing and modding the game couldn't hear themselves think and left.

There is a quite big difference between a "mock-up", aka a model of the product, and a half-finished product, however, both descriptions are wrong!
This sim is atm like a car where the ignition timing and injection mapping is not perfect and the paintjob isn't finished.
It runs rough, stutters from time to time and it doesn't look perfect, but it takes you from a to b most of the time, sometimes even smooth and fast.
It's worked on and it's getting better, thats what counts. And it beats walking hands down.

Wow, this thread is funny.

The haters vs. fanbois.. ? Pft, do me a favour.

It's like being in a Bar, you've got people quite happily drinking thier beer whilst in the corner somebody is constantly telling them that the beer is #%&*$#, they've tasted it and it's #%&*$#, the people who brewed it are #%&*$#, the bar is #%&*$#, the barman is a #%&*$#, did I mention that the beer in here is #%&*$#!?

For the regulars, who don't mind the beer (it's ok, it could be better, but I've had worse) this gets irritaing in the extreme.
I already decided I don't mind the beer, that's why I'm here. Why are you here? Simply to tell me that the beer I'm drinking is #%&*$#?
Thanks..

In the UK there is a catch all for consumers rights 'Not fit for purpose'.

If you feel that the 'beer' is not fit for purpose then legally you are entitled to a refund.
Go to the Owner of the Bar, in this case steam, and demand a refund.
Once sucessful (this may take a few emails, but you have rights) divert your energies into telling people how to get thier refund.

Because, if you sit in the corner of the bar shouting at random people at some point you're gonna get your head kicked in.

Oh I forgot, we're not in a bar, we're all hiding behind monitors where there are no consequences for our actions. It's easy.

Anybody who behaves like the corner boys in RL is a twat, end of.

Tree once said (in defence of his negative postings) that he'd 'stand outside a bad restaraunt and tell people how bad the food is' (I'm paraphrasing but the same sentiment was expressed), that's all you need to know about the mind set.

Take what you can from the Bar, there are some good regulars in here who are just happy chatting about WWII, bugs, tracers, textures, stutters, stutters, disappointments, etc etc etc..

Personally I think that people were put off posting here due to the massive amount of garbage filling this forum up on a daily basis and nothing got done about it.


That's because after a while, there never was any debating...You are either "for" or "against". Anything critical and you are instantly a "hater". Anything singing the praises of what works, "fanboy". In spite of it all, I still haven't decided to get it or not. Frankly, I'm leaning toward not because of the fact that I do not own, nor will I any time soon, the 50 core, 475K Teraflop SSD, HAL 9000 with the NVIDEA factory integrated into the chassis, powered by GE. According to some of our more charming members, this means that I'm not "serious" about my gaming computer...I don't own a "midrange" I7.

I lean no, not because of the things that have been beaten to death a thousand times. What is more important to me is the fact that the campaign, isn't much and the AI is either rancid or amazing, not helping the campaign. As for the rest, I does look great, I'll give you that... wave

Yes when the game is in a state it should be but I won't hold my breath on the moaning going even then... we have the FM/DM and 190 bar to throw a paddy over next... (luftwhiners, cheating clans 12Lbs spit.... :D)

Now I love this stuff it motivates me to take a close look at this game, in fact I have spent many hours in the FMB looking at the AI and setting up different senerios to see how the AI act. I see a lot of potential in the AI, while at times having to scratch my head too. So that's the reality of it, there's good and bad I can accept that

Specific critisizm about the game does us a lot of good and I really appreciate hearing it, ah for the most, but when I grow weary it's really the game that is at fault.

after having frey on ignore for the last couple months, he finally posts something worthwhile.

Considering his history a "i'm taking my ball and going home" post doesn't surprise me one bit. Seriously, the drama queen stuff is over the top, if you don't like what's up, just leave, don't need to make an announcement as i doubt many would notice either way.

Pretty hard to be positive about this game with the shape it's in. I know some manage to find a way, but that means diddly as there are STILL people playing battlecruiser 3000ad and still thinking it's the greatest thing ever and that derek smart is a flippin genius. Just speaks to personal taste. CLOD is much the same as BC3000ad in my opinion. Very buggy half finished game devoid of anything to make it interesting. There's part of me that hopes it can be fixed. But the realist in me knows that what we got now is likely as good as it's going to get. There's no way this games selling well once it's released here in teh states with the buzz it allready has about it. Sad to see a flight sim tank, but a stinker is a stinker.

And that's your opinion and I'm okay with it, I do not share it but do not feel threatened. Do you feel threatened that I might not share your opinion.

Doesnt matter that CoD has multiple issues.

The problem is this forum.

Thats why i pretty much left to

I also know no one gives a sh*t.



Will come here for no other reason than to look at the screen shot thread, witch haven't been left alone by this forums "problem" either. Big surprise there.

The new Il-2 series is a WIP and hopefully it will be for another 10 to 15 years. Many people haven't gotten over the fact that the sim was released before it was finished

True and true Chivas, it was a shock to begin with yes but it's gradually seeping in, it's started calling to me in quiet moments. It can be very wonderful in there and for once- no flight model arguments

We'll know we've got there when that finally kicks off. It's still on rails a bit and nowhere near as feather-floating as RoF. In my aggrandising opinion Smile2

Wiser words have not been spoken. Why is it so hard for everyone to understand this? One buys a movie ticket. It's entertainment. You shouldn't have to "make an effort" to enjoy the movie. It's either enjoyable (out of the box, so to speak) or it isn't. A concert either sucks or it doesn't. You shouldn't have to "make an effort." You paid for entertainment. The effort is on the side of the producer of the entertainment. No one purchases an automobile that is deeply flawed and "makes an effort" to enjoy it, unless one has no other choice. The car should do what you expect to do. If it doesn't, it's a lemon and should be returned (or sold to some other sucker).

If a piece of entertainment software is a lemon, it should become a coaster. No one should have to "make an effort" to enjoy crap.

The fanboys have lost their minds. Either that, or for some inexplicable reason feel they have no choice. How could they believe they have no choice? There are many other combat flight sims to enjoy. How is CLOD essential to their lives? It's not a crap automobile that you have to tolerate and constantly repair in order to get to work until you can replace it. It's a piece of entertainment software, for crying out loud.

Wiser words have not been spoken. Why is it so hard for everyone to understand this? One buys a movie ticket. It's entertainment. You shouldn't have to "make an effort" to enjoy the movie. It's either enjoyable (out of the box, so to speak) or it isn't. A concert either sucks or it doesn't. You shouldn't have to "make an effort." You paid for entertainment. The effort is on the side of the producer of the entertainment. No one purchases an automobile that is deeply flawed and "makes an effort" to enjoy it, unless one has no other choice. The car should do what you expect to do. If it doesn't, it's a lemon and should be returned (or sold to some other sucker).

If a piece of entertainment software is a lemon, it should become a coaster. No one should have to "make an effort" to enjoy crap.

The fanboys have lost their minds. Either that, or for some inexplicable reason feel they have no choice. How could they believe they have no choice? There are many other combat flight sims to enjoy. How is CLOD essential to their lives? It's not a crap automobile that you have to tolerate and constantly repair in order to get to work until you can replace it. It's a piece of entertainment software, for crying out loud.


Watch out, you are talking sense. That is not going to go down well with the torch and pitchfork brigade.

Plainsman, you make some good points that really shows how different individuals can be.

For starters, CoD has always run fine on my system. If it didn't then I'd agree with you that it was crap. There were some annoying stutter issues that were completely resolved with the Launcher.exe tweak. In fairness, I admit that fps would slow down over London and Le Havre to the point that this sim was unplayable. Most BoB pilots did not fly over those cities in their daily sorties, so I don't either. For some that would be completely unacceptable, for me not a major issue. Since the Hotfix patch I found, like many others, that I eventually would lose sound in MP. That IS a major issue for me that must be fixed. For many the MP sound glitch is a dealbreaker because MP is the feature that counts most for them. I can certainly agree with that. It would seem reasonable to expect that a fix will be forthcoming and unreasonable to believe otherwise.

"To make an effort enjoying this sim" means, for me, delving into the FMB plus learning the CEM to the point that I can engage in aerial combat and still effectively fly the aircraft to its maximum efficiency. Elsewhere in this forum I've commented/complained about the borked Campaign - hence the challenge or "effort" of figuring out the FMB to make my own missions.

So, maybe we're playing semantics here on what "making an effort" means. Thousands (perhaps millions) enjoy playing the cardgame "Bridge" which requires a huge effort to enjoy, not to mention the many variations of Poker. In terms of cardgames other prefer the simpler games of "Go Fish" or "Hearts" -- less rules to learn, faster gameplay, etc. Neither is "wrong" for chosing their preference - it's simply different strokes for different folks.

So it is for Cliffs of Dover. Lots broken, but lots run well. There are complexities to it that require "an effort" to master such as the Full Mission Builder and Complex Engine Management (CEM is fairly simple on its own, but can be a challenge to manage in a dogfight when trying to maintain situational awareness).

I can understand your point of view. You lay down your money and fully expect it to be 100% operational. Cliffs of Dover is NOT 100% operational - not even close. We've all seen the bug list to know that. For many: case closed. Is it the $45 you spent that keeps you returning here to ridicule those of us "fanboys" who do enjoy what Cliffs of Dover offers despite the broken bits? THAT'S what puzzles me about you and the other detractors.

Yes, yes, very well explained, either we have lost our minds or feel we are forced to enjoy this game. What looloo farm do you come from, Perhaps we should be reminding you it's just a game, your post sounds like you're sitting in an institution somewhere angrily bidding your time.

Yes of course it just a piece of software, yep just 30 quids worth. We prob all have spent more on a few beers and a curry with the lads or a movie with the wife.

But i would guess the reason i get worked up about COD is that its my hobby...no wait...i wanted it to be my hobby but its not cos its not what we all want it to be yet.(positive)

Alot of us here have been flying IL2 for years now, we have spent thousands of pounds over the years on upgrades or HOTAS systems and many hundreds of hours with our hobby flying IL2. Then we hear about the NEW sim from Oleg that's coming! The Battle of Britain!! Wow we all wondered and talked about just how good its going to be with our sqd mates while still flying IL2.
Its by Oleg and its a new engine with all new stuff!! it must be fantastic, i mean look at IL2 and how good that is.

So we waited, and waited, and waited...all the time still flying IL2 ...lots of SP campaigns, or missions, but best of all for me, flying online with my mates...first for me was with 602sqd (puff, crater, loopy and the rest)...training nights with CO-OPs, then vs other sqds or public players. Best of all though was VEF online wars! that's where the blood got pumping, flying 16 vs 16 in a online war where stats and kills were recorded and you tried to complete your mission.

Then after with my own sqd "Blackhearts" = BKHZ smile

The best fun ive had online in my life! doing my fave hobby, flying WW2 fighter planes with my mates vs real people.

Ive got hundreds of books on WW2 mostly about the airwar, and again most of them are about the Battle of Britain,

So i would say "The Battle of Britain" by Oleg maddox was something i was REALLY looking forward too.

It has nothing to do with my REAL life, but as a hobby its important.

So when COD(what a crap name) finally was released in the total shambles it was, it was a huge let down, a massive disappointment for me, not just because its a 30 quid piece of sofware but because it SHOULD of been so much better, and because there is nothing out there to take its place.

Sure i can fly ROF and i do and i think its great, i can play any number of games or sims on my PC but none of them are "The Battle of Britain by Oleg maddox".

Actually, the concept of making an effort to enjoy something is not without its merrits. We may not conciously think about it, but the enjoyment of a good book is the result of the effort we have made when learning how to read. To someone who can't read, a book might "suck." To take that a step further, the efforts we make to educate ourselves results in an even better appreciation of the books we read because we understand the author's references and so on.

Actually, there are countless examples of things that require an effort to enjoy. Of course, it takes an effort to even understand that. However, I admit that not all things stir in me the interest to make an effort, so I don't begrudge anyone not wanting to make an effort to enjoy CoD. Just try to understand that those of us who do make the effort to enjoy CoD know what we are doing and don't necessarily need a lesson in life priorities. wink

Furbs, you've laid out the reasons for your acute disappointment in CoD very clearly and, to various degrees, is shared by all of us. I never flew in squads online with IL2, only solo sorties via Hyperlobby. Much earlier I flew with the 509th Composite Squadron way back in Air Warrior 2, then Warbirds, but the 509th disbanded when fewer of us could commit to regular squad nights because of work and/or family obligations.

However, you've never resorted to ridicule those who DO enjoy CoD for what it is. In a past thread you registered your disappointment, expressed hope that all will be fixed, and left it at that. What I can't for the life of me understand is the derision held by other detractors for those of us who actually do enjoy flying C0D and come to SimHQ to share experiences and try to trade info and tips on this sim. In a perverse way this is considered "wrong" and we're all "Oleg fanboys" (never met the man, actually). I'm almost 58 years old and left the high school hallways 40 years ago. Like many other here I grew up and learned to enjoy doing what I do and not have to justify myself to anyone. One village idiot here even took me to task as to what artistic academic accreditations I have because I expressed my enjoyment of posted screenshots!

So, I can understand why people aren't happy with CoD. That's the easy part. The hard part is understanding the mentality of people, who are presumably adults, that continually return to a forum of a game they detest -- and some don't even OWN -- to take shots at fellow members who do enjoy the game. It makes no sense!

Letterboy1...agreed smile

But it's not about lessons in life's priorities or moralising in general (I dont agree with Dart about perspective. We know all that, and perspective didn't dampen anyone's enthusiasm back when most people thought it was going to be great).

As Furbs says, it's about a very disappointing game...no more, but no less either.

It doesn't do any harm to narrow down the areas of disappointment, which vary. And banging on about the missing fundamentals at least keeps the message going. If nothing else, it may serve as an illustration to other devs (I dont buy the 'buy-this-to-support-it' line).

It will be interesting to see what NA makes of it.

Cheers Snapper, i dont have a problem with people enjoying COD, i enjoy parts of COD alot. Just not the parts that are the most important(to me).

As to the last part of what you said, i don't know but i also don't mind.

To me its just internet talk smile

Actually, it does make sense from a certain perspective and one can speculate as to the real motives behind such actions/behavior but alas, people will be people and there's nothing you can do about it.

Cheers, Furbs.

Let's hope all gets fixed.

As for the rest, I was once advised to look at annoying people as I would the yappy little dog down the street. A bloody nuisance, yes, but just how personal are you going to take it? LOL

All is not lost....I always wanted to see the word "sty" in a post. Thanks Frey. Hmmmm, does pigpen sound more refined, or is it me?

Well i have never slated anyone (to my knowledge) for enjoying the game, my biggest beef is with the developers, they just blatently lied through the development process, i could see it coming but it still angers me greatly because this could of been a great sim.

I agree with Tree. If Luthier&Co would've been honest about the state of the sim prior to release this whole drama could've been completely (well, mostly) avoided. Of course, if they'd done that UBI probably would've launched an army of lawyers on them. Can't tell customers that the product they're about to release is unfinished...

The problem is that I already got burned on a "Luthier" product once, i.e. the Pacific Fighters addon which very much disappointed me. Lots of promises, pretty sobering content.

So yes, my trust especially in Luthier has suffered quite a bit. And the communication, or better, the lack of it doesn't help either. Compare that to the RoF or DCS devs and you'll see a world of difference.

Now, I don't think for a second that Luthier or his team intended to "rip us off" or don't care about their product and its fans, but IMO their project management seems to be an utter disaster.

What you say makes a lot of sense to me, PB. Elsewhere in this forum I had wished that the release of CoD had followed the DCS-A10C route. I purchased DCS as a "beta" and it ran like crap on my system - unstable, erratic control inputs, it would even crash to desktop as I was mapping my HOTAS during setup! Being a beta, I could state my concerns but could hardly complain - it was a beta, after all. After several patches DCS became a 'full retail' product and it actually runs beautifully on my system now. If C0D had done this it would've been a straightforward case of "let the buyer beware". Most of us would've bought it anyway with our eyes wide open, no one could have claimed to be duped. I don't suscribe to any great conspiracy theory - I agree that UBI must have directed the proceedings and the developers were not at liberty to speak their minds.

ROF also runs great on my system. I enjoy it a great deal, but WW1 sims are not my thing. The same with DCS, although I think I'm basically too lazy to, er, "put in the effort to enjoy it"! LOL (Oh, the irony on that remark!).

WW2 sims ARE my thing, and the Battle of Britain is THE theatre in my books. It actually runs quite well on my system despite the numerous glitches and missing/broken features. I get a kick out of strapping into a Spit or Hurri and meeting enemy bombers head on. The AI is wild at times - the F16 roll maneuvres leave me cold, especially for multi-engines. The Jafa sound mod really improved the auditory aspect, and I can only hope the upcoming sound changes are as good or better.

Time will tell.

Furbs, I could see that Coops are essential towards developing a huge online community. Although not my cup of tea (but never say never), IL2 was renowned for its online community and it only makes sense that the devs acknowledge this and expand the MP accordingly via a patch. Their silence is deafening.

I really dont think it was UBI who put the pressure on to release this game i honestly dont believe they did, I also dont think UBI were back on board until late in development, do you guys remember Oleg saying in 2010 that they now had a publisher onboard and that he would wait for the publisher to announce themselves? I remember that very well. Now that we know Oleg was long gone well before release i think it was most likely Oleg putting pressure on luthier to get the game out, Oleg as done with flight sims he's now involved in 3d photography and I think that he wanted to cash in his investment and move on.

Given that reality, there is probably zero chance this sim will ever live up to the expectations initially created by Oleg and 1C. The guy bailed. He grabbed the money that poured in from the panting fanboys and took off. Of course he knew the product was a mess, and probably believed it was unfixable short of a cost-benefit ratio that was not to his liking. He's a smart man. Why else would he bail? Think people, think.

I fully understand strong interest in a subject or era. But don't you feel hoodwinked by someone who released a game you were dying to get your hands on, knowing it was a mess and likely never to be finished, but didn't want to risk a fist full of money, so he cut and ran?

CloD wasn't a title I was lusting to get my hands on, even though I own all previous IL2 sim releases (I'm an single-player guy and became bored with 1C sims), but had it been such a title, my response would be decidedly different than fanboyism. My outrage would've made me do with the game what one normally does with dogshit. And I wouldn't spend one single additional minute hoping and praying for another patch, and another, and another, and "making an effort" to enjoy something that was a major and irreparable disappointment(remember: Oleg is a business man. He must not have seen sufficient profit in laboring over it any longer).

I'd move on to another game. For your own psychological and emotional health, I urge you fellows to "detox" and do the same. It bothers me to see adult members of a rather good community in agony. BOBII is a fine sim. Get your Battle of Britain fix from it. Wings of Prey has contemporary graphics and multiplayer, with BOB scenarios. Move on.

Yes you should

The tone of your posts do not suggest you are a person who is happy with the choices you've made in your life, you sound bitter and angry, or about to have an anxiety attack; yet here you are trying to make choices for others. This funny only to a point, but after that, well..........

I believe it was UBI. I can't think someone with the minimum knowledge of sims will do something like Spit Girl.

I agree with Bisher. If you didn't buy a game, and have no interest in it why on earth would you post on a dedicated forum for it?? It's just pathetic. There are lots of things I am not interested in....and as a result I don't waste my time telling people that they've made the wrong choice.

Like I said a few times the main issue is that the mods have let this forum get trashed by idiots who have little or no interest in CLOD and just want to run it down. Daily posts by trolls will just stop people from posting here and as a result there is very little content in this section of the SimHQ forum. The other forum is simply better because it is moderated.

The sim has problems, some of us enjoy it still and hope that it will get continued support. If it doesn't it isnt the end of the world. 30 quid is nothing in the grand scheme of things.

I really don't know why I bother reading this forum anymore

Freys departure reminds me of people who pack up and move to get away from their problems....problem is, where ever you go, you have to take yourself with you. He will surely encounter the same type of folks that are unhappy with the state of the sim and ridicule and attack them for mentioning it. When posting bugs and issues, one post in one thread doesnt always get noticed and can easily be overlooked. As tiresome as it might be, repeated reminders of what is wrong gets the devs attention that something needs to be fixed.

And this just proves how far out from reality you are.

There is never, i repeat, never ever only one post from one poster on one website for every real or imagined error, bug, wrongness!!!

Good. You can understand why people are not happy with CoD.
And I also am having a hard time understanding the mentality of certain people, also presumably adults that insist people that are critical about this product are not contributors to this forum! I want this game to be finished, as bug free as possible, and the best WW2 air combat simulator ever made. I want that as bad as YOU DO!!! And it pisses me off when people imply I hate this game! Cuss
It doesnt matter if you have the game. There is plenty of anecdotal information and people that have the game to share the information that anyone can have an opinion that is valid.
You talk about people taking shots... How about the people in your camp that make these false claims that people hate this game, and imply we have all kinds of mental issues just because we dont agree with you. It is contemptible and I have really had it with getting my views distorted just so it can fit
someones scheme to place me in the "hater" camp. What BS bs_sign
There is polarization in this forum because there doesnt seem to be a way to take middle ground with this game/sim. That is like standing in no mans land. As has been said before and I agree I dont think there is a single person that has posted in the IL2- CoD forum that really hates CoD. Its a difference in philosophies that is at war... the ones that believe in the 'glass half full or empty' theory and the ones I lean toward "If it is being sold as a finished product it must be a finished product"
If you can show me a posting where I attacked or ridiculed anyone personally, unless that person attacked me first, feel free to block quote it and I will apologize to that person.

As well, we have been waiting a long time for changes to the game to happen, bug discussions ended weeks ago for the most. This leaves us with idle minds and that's dangerous for us simmers. lol

We need new bugs to start stimulating problem solving discussions, so bring it on 1C, lets get this thing going again. Next patch please biggrin

Well we have the U.S. release coming very soon. I am hoping there is a major patch by the 1C boys real soon. It would seem

to be in order now? (saying it as diplomatically as possible)

Commorange - I've caused you offense and I apologize. Not intended. I've not liked the term "hater" and have tried to use "detractor" as being closer to the mark. You've never taken a shot at me or anyone else that I recall - you've always kept your posts on the sim itself. The term "fanboy" which others have used is meant to be inflammatory, but it seems just as ludicrous as "hater". To the majority of us, Oleg Maddox is a Russian guy who has made brilliant flight sims for home PC's, but none of us idolize the guy that I know of. And how can anyone "hate" a $45 software program?

I didn't mean to imply any mental issues - poor choice of words by using "mentality". Better for me to have asked "what is the thinking behind" perhaps. I'm still puzzled, though, why those who are unhappy with the game come to this forum other than to check if a new patch has been released.
