Yes, you should definately buy it!! As for online, it is active, as for cheating, it has a very honorable group of people supporting it!

Thanks Dann!
I figure for $10.00 what do I have to loose

I'm coming from European Air War, so pardon me if I cross my terms.
What do you guys think are WW II's strenghts and weaknesses?

strength: graphics, fun, and lots of great mods for the game.
weakness: original flight models were made to make game more leveled. altitude bug, somewhat enoying at times.
overall: i think its the best ww2 sim to date.

The flight model issue has been corrected by flight models found on http://ww2f.dogfighter.com/

Another strenght: a great Mission Editor, enhanced by using the Dynamic Mission Editor within the regular one. (Get info at the site above).

Ghost, what is the altitude bug??

Si Vis etc

altitude bug is if someone lets say 100 meters above you they'll appear very small and almost impossible to hit. this happens only at certain altitudes. usually above 7000 feet. so in case of those boom n zoomers they exploit this bug to a very great degree. this is how it works: you are a bit higher than your opponent and he is coming go get you, you go into a complete vertical climb, even thought he might be catching up to you, his chance of landing a hit are almost null. due to this bug you'll appear to him as thought you are 1km away even though the distance will only be about 100-200 meters. after he'll start stalling, you use rudder and reverse your direction from climb to dive and and up 200 meters behind your opponent, chasing him with your guns blazing. this is boom n zoom 101.

Ah, I was clicking on open gl and only showed 640 but in d3d there's a whole list of choices.

Now for that online question, with combat net gone is there another place people connect from, kali ww2 sims server perhaps or just icq list?
