When BoS on CD?
« on: December 09, 2013, 08:05:34 AM »

Hello guys, I saw your amazing posts about BoS and I admit I am a bit envious... ;)
Do you know if BoS will be issued on CD (as Il-2 1946) and when?

Ciao!

Best if you ask this in their forum. But as I understand it. It will not be published in CD format. But I am not sure

As far as I can tell, there has been no decision made public yet.

But keep in mind that you will have to download all updates for the game anyway, and logging in also requires internet at least once. So you better get used to the thought of an internet connection on your sim pc, at least for a short time. Otherwise playing BoS may become quite difficult for you.

I'm sorry this is not the better news you were hoping for, but that's the situation at the moment.

This is the new trend concerning to PC games. The age of in box games definitively has gone. Main reason for this is piracy...

Hi guys, thanks for your replies. For installation by internet I think is not a really problem. I have a pc used as mule for internet connection, so I imagine I can download the game and activation code and then install it on my sim pc. I thinks this is a possible way to do that...

I am not an informatic expert but I not think is the right way to avoid piracy. Maybe it possible to slowing it, but not remove it all...

Oh, it is also much cheaper for the gamemaker... no more material, no more transportation costs, no more returns by customers...

So cheaper I don't think...surely is a new way to make a flight simulator. However, seeing the details, airplanes and terrains, and picturing the great work to done that I think is not even so expensive (IMHO). A good compromise.
I hope the add-on and update will be quite cheaper indeed.

Next I will try to have datailed informations about download and activation key from a pc to another.

Many thanks for your opinions.
Ciao.
