buy this sim as a result of the fixes implemented in the Realism Patch? I have wanted to buy this sim but I hesitated when I saw such crazy comments about wingmen AI and the Betty's super guns. My last Pacific war flight sim was the ACES series from Dynamix from the early nineties. I had so much fun with that sim.

Also, is someone working on a Betty's fix to make those guns a bit more realistic and less lethal? I have read that shooting at a moving fighter from a bomber is quite inaccurate.

I certainly appreciate the work that is being done on this sim by dedicated simmers. I just want to know if it is enough to make this sim a bit accurate, better coded and realistic.

Overkill, the fix exists. actually many of them: .air mods, various .dp and .cfg config changes.
There's enough to suit your taste!
Just do a search on this forum w/ betty as a keyword...

I must say that with nibbio's enhancements, Wells dedicated work on the FMs, BarkHorn's corrected campaign and numerous .cfg and .dp fixes, this is now a lot of fun. There'll always be issues, but imho this sim is now worth the buy...
