This problem defenitely isn't fixed!, Ajax.
The only thing that was fixed is the "possibility" that a single flak burst in front of you causes the roll-damage-bug.
The bug itself still is there.
@Kanine_Wsivelod: Did you smoke the wrong stuff???
AntEater just posted his opinion (btw.: that's exactly my opinion. For guys like you I suggest another mod: Adding biolocical and chemical weapons to the game, wouldn't that be fun?)

Anyway, merry christmas!

A-ha. Thanks for pointing it out...anyway I've uninstalled CFS2 since a while. Maybe I'll just sell it off and get BoB instead.

Didn't want to offend you, Ajax.
Sorry that you uninstalled CFS2 (imho it's worth staying on my HD, but the reason could be that I'm not a "hardcore-simmer"(whatever this is )).
But what I've seen yet from BOB isn't worth the money. It looks like EAW (which is a great game, but two years old) from the graphics point (and in these days that's not enough for me [I admit, I'm a graphics addict ]).
It promises thousand planes raids (or so), but due to experience of recently released games, I wouldn't bet one penny on these promises.
Btw., do you know if these ugly plane markings that I saw in various screenshots(the "Balkenkreuz" and the english "tricolor") are in the final release of the game?
These markings remind me of "Nations Fighter Command", and that is a game that was wiped faster off my HD than you can spell "sh*t"

No offense taken, either, TBird But-

Oh, there I have to disagree Have you tried the final demo? You'll want to take back that thousand plane comment, 300+ plane raids are common, and not even EAW tops that. As for the graphics, they are better than EAW, at least the plane models, and the 3D clouds are some of the best and most realistic I've seen. You can replace and customize all the plane skins and terrains, as a matter of fact JayP's done a swastika mod and AxA has already released a new terrain.

Maybe I'm beginning to sound like a certain Spawnbob fellow, but I sure wouldn't want you to miss on that one just because of the graphics If you are a serious simmer, you owe to yourself to at least try the demo...anyway, I've already ordered my copy from www.softwarefirst.com .

Thx Ajax for the additional info.
I must admit that I haven't informed myself very well about this game (must have misread the info about the 1000 plane raids). I've read some comments here and there and watched screenshots (of which I'm certainly not very impressed, just to repeat it )

I think I'll wait till it's out for a month or so and read the reactions in the forums (the demo is not an option for me cos I have ISDN (too slow) and I pay per minute for beeing connected to the internet )

TBird

P.S.: Ajax, perhaps you could post some high-res-screenies of the demo, the ones I've seen seem to be taken at a low resolution or are of reduced quality due to a high compression rate. Thx

the 'gadget/fatman' device is still in beta and not yet ready for release (errr, no puns intended). When it's done, it will be made available and freely distributable from http://www.geocities.com/cfs2_manhattan_project/.

hopefully the first public build will be up before the new year, but don't quote me on that.
