Beta 3 is up for us pre-purchasers.

Recommended Posts

Beta 3, right from the source.


The trouble is, ED has pulled their usual act of yanking something at the last minute and saying

it will be added later.


Nellis AFB, Groom Lake and surrounding areas are no longer in, and won't be in the release.


I mean, how tired is the Crimea theater? They've been using it since Flanker 2!


When I was beta-testing LOMAC, they did the same thing with the dynamic campaign. That never did appear.


That is the main reason I took a pass on everything since, but I couldn't pass on the wunnerful

It won't be in the release either? Why not? If it's in the beta it's obviously already mostly done, is there that much work left to do on it?

I gave them the Indian giver routine for DX11 because they announced it so late that when it was claimed it would be in A-10C I was just stunned they could do it that fast. The later retraction that it was taking longer than they thought and wouldn't make it in was perfectly reasonable. Nevada was announced for A-10C LONG ago, though. :mega_shok:

Looks like before I add this patch I will remove the terrain files for Nevada, add the update and then put it back in. I like the Nevadas terrain alot. Its one of my reasons for getting this.

I, personally, copied my Beta 2 folder to a different drive, then installed the patch on the old one.


Well, that was the theory, and other issues pervade, but I can still run the old one and fly on my old

maps, I tweaked quite a few from the Mission generator.


As to the release, JM, no, it won't be there. They did the same thing with the dynamic campaigns

in LOMAC. Announced it early, then yanked it a month before release. The current patch 2

version was definitely not ready for primetime.


Getting 5 - 7 fps when facing `Vegas, and 50-ish everywhere else was not a good sign.


They just say there's too much to be done before release.


Gotta be out for the Christmas sales I would imagine...

I didn't remember the dynamic campaign being promised for LOMAC then yanked, but I do remember it was to come out "later". However, that was what, 7-8 yrs ago? Still no dynamic campaigns for LOMAC, FC, or DCS.


I had no idea the terrain performance was that bad, though. I suppose they feel it better to put it out later than have it working that horribly.

I don't actually know, and figure it would be tough to get all the cross-correlations, so took the easy way out.


I copied the whole she-bang to a separate drive while it was still beta 2, then upgraded the original install to B3.


This way I can choose which install I fly from. The latest/greatest, or the one with my treasured Nellis missions

in it...
