Given what you said about usenet, I'm guessing that's not good If you're referring to the quote by quote style, I'm afraid I do that everywhere - I find it easier to organise my thoughts posting that way, and old habits die hard

I'm not looking to provoke you, make you cross, get you to post pointless flames, or anything of the sort - I disagreed with what you said about the flight sim group, and wanted to say why. I thought that you misinterpreted why I'd made the point about their reaction, and felt I should set the record straight.

The "hardcore" comment and my punk anecdote at the bottom are just intended to lighten the tone a little, and point up the (to me) absurdity of saying that one group of enthusiasts is more worthy of attention (solely) by virtue of where they post their comments.

You don't like my opinion, that's fair enough. I've discussed my gripes with Carl on here and I'm cool about this.

It's not that I don't like it, I just disagree with it. If I've given the impression that I'm cross, or spoiling for a fight, that's absolutely not my intention; there are no hard feelings here.

I don't see what the problem is. A month long wait for an upgrade that is free? Hum.........

This thread is getting as bad as some on the Flanker homepage. "By the way, I bought some milk last week which went sour even though it was in the refrigerator, can I claim a refund from SSI because I did buy Flanker 18 months ago for $ 50 and demand a lifetime guarantee for everything and anything that ever happens to me, my family, friends and alien colleagues?"

Nope, didn't think so........

DanW is right.

Considering the sales generated by an upgrade to an existing flight sim, versus the income produced by a new game like Mech Warrior 4 (or whatever), we are LUCKY any of our favorite developers spend time and money fixing bugs and releasing upgrades!

Can't you guys see that? It's about money.

You don't need a marketing degree for this folks. I work in a small business. If we try a new product and it sits on the shelf collecting dust, we don't reorder it. If it sells out in a wekk, we'll double the order next time. If a product doesn't sell, you kill it. If it sells a lot, you make more of it.

After seeing the great Jane's brand call it quits for flight sims and even "soft sim" makers like Novalogic canceling new flight titles like Commanche 4, we better jump for joy and open our wallets whenever a good sim maker talks about new and better combat flight sims.

I'm not saying we should praise crappy, buggy products; if a sim is good, it's good and if it sucks, it sucks. But we can't throw a tantrum when we have to wait a few weeks for a FREE upgrade.

Good Hunting.
