Yea, I just had Ubisoft Game #2 implode on install, so I'm just curious who is writing the installers for CoD. Is this going to be a straight 1C:Maddox Games thing, with Ubi just providing international marketing and brandname, or where they going to be writing some of the install and DRM software for it too?

I'm planning on buying the Steam version myself.

Yea steam for me to. Also a spitfire could alpha strike your tempest anyday, because its held together with ducktape and chewing gum ^^

Only if it gets close enough. My autos have a 60km effective range, even with the Spitfire's sig radius, and with it's max orbit of only 150 m/s, you kind of right in the max DPS zone. Don't for get the drones.

Can't say I've ever had this issue with Ubi games myself. The only real offender for me recently has been Crysis, and it's a crappy game anyway, so whoop-dee-doo, good mods though. Which game was it?
In partial answer to your question though, Voyager, I'd be kind of surprised if they use a different installer between the International and Russian version, so it'll be 1C's fault as well if it's screwy.

The DoAs for me are (ironically enough) Deadspace, and Beyond Good & Evil.

Mmm, which installer do they use? I usually have the worst problems with programs that use the Windows Installer (no surprises there).

Wait, your not even going to respond to my insult you stinking minmitar? I bet your heap of flying space junk would get shot down by a 9mm pistol!

Too far? Probably, now I look silly.
