Micro-patch :)

The patch is quite big in size: 105 MB. Whilst the previous may patch was just 20 MB.

I wonder what changed other then wat is officially listed.

I also noticed that. AFAIK none of these units flew F-4Es, but they all had Mirage IIIOs... :cool:

Avionics 60 stutter isn't fixed for me. I even did a fresh install with June 2012 installers. This is with vanilla installs too.

Too bad the stuttering is still there for me. I think I'll go back to the patch before May. Bummer the populated carriers in Campaigns fix came with May....

Noticed a minor change in the new Jun2012 patch. After ejecting all camera views are available now..

In my experience, there wasn't much wrong with them before :dntknw:

Quite honestly, I played a bit yesterday and noticed no difference :dntknw:

Maybe because my install is heavily modded or something but everything seems as before..

Is anyone else seeing a blueish haze on the far horizon and a blue tint to the landscape in the far distance? I quite like it.

I haven't had a chance to try the new patch yet. I wonder how the "player missiles are more effective" thing is handled...

 

This thread is... interesting...

Yes - the missiles now seem to work in hard mode properly and actually take down the bombers.

Too many people whined about it taking 3 or 4 missile to take down a plane...

 

this is the 60s/70s era.... And with the use of Countermeasures... Not every shot is gonna be a Hit, and not every shot is gonna be a Direct Hit.

 

the electronics and programming in these missiles aren't 100% reliable or even 70% reliable like they are in 1995+/Gen4+ era.

 

Basically what was our happy lil nest egg has been taken over by people that dont know their history, or refuse to update from the Pentium 3 era.
