Steam really needs to get this game asap.
Looks phenomenal.

I saw the mention of this in a topic without the name
"wings of prey".

here: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1089365

Thought it couldn't hurt to get the name out.

im playing wings of prey and it is great. i got the demo from uplay website. on the site there is also the option to buy it, it looks fantastic and ive heard that it is the pc version of the console game released earlier but with a slightly different name. you can set it to be as arcadey or simmy as you like as well by turning things on/off. theres options for different types of joystick and mine is one of them so it was no hasstle to setup unlike IL2 is for me. definately worth a try if you like flight simms, its on my to buy list after playing the demo.

Anton Yudintsev, one of the devs, said it would not be very soon, so probably a month or more before it will be available on Steam. I hope soonner though.

I heard from some of those guys from that site that once they patch the game up to where they and the community likes it, then they would feel more confidant in releasing it on Steam. So I guess the game is still in sort of a beta stage, which isn't bad. I mean I'm glade they are making an attempt to make the game something us PCers will like instead of a crappy console port.

Looks like you have to sent an email to the publisher asking to have more activation and they will send you more. That is has long they are in business I guess ..... booo indeed.

Starforce has a boycott going by a lot of folks. Really dangerous software there. Can invade your system like a virus, and propogate itself onto other drives like one as well, all in the name of spying on you and your CD drives.

The odd thing is I read that Ubisoft bailed on StarForce as far back as 2006. What gives on putting into the new game?

See here for info: http://www.glop.org/starforce/

Also a quick copy and paste for those that don't know:

"For example, here's one of the common problems brought by Starforce: under Windows XP, if packets are lost during the reading or writing of a disk, XP interprets this as an error and steps the IDE speed down. Eventually it will revert to 16bit compatibility mode rendering a CD/DVD writer virtually unusable. In some circumstances certain drives cannot cope with this mode and it results in physical hardware failure (Most commonly in multiformat CD/DVD writer drives). A sure sign of this step down occurring is that the burn speeds will get slower and slower (no matter what speed you select to burn at). Starforce, on a regular basis, triggers this silent step down. Until it reaches the latter stages most people do not even realise it is happening.

"Here's what Greg Vederman, PC Gamer editor-in-chief, experienced:

"I'm okay with that in theory, but some of these anti-piracy software programs are so potent that they cause issues for legitimate game buyers. One of the leading brands, StarForce, is notorious for not only making it difficult for a small percentage of legitimate users to load up StarForce-protected games, but also for leaving potentially problem-causing StarForce software behind on your PC, even after you've deleted the game it was protecting. And this isn't just some story that I've read about online or in emails from readers. No, it happened to me.

"Last year, my work PC suddenly began blue-screening (crashing) any time I popped an audio CD into either of my two optical drives. I went online and learned that other people were having this problem and that it appeared to be StarForce-related. Deleting my StarForce-protected games did nothing. I had to run a StarForce-removal utility before my system - filled only with legal, licensed software - could play audio CDs again.

"Broken Starforce CD It has been reported by many users that the slowdown caused by StarForce on some recent multiformat DVD writers can cause irreversible hardware failures on those drives (they aren't recognized anymore), as they aren't supposed to write at slow speeds.

"Moreover, the Starforce drivers, installed on your system, grant ring 0 (system level) privileges to any code under the ring 3 (user level) privileges. Thus, any virus or trojan can get OS privileges and totally control your system. Since Windows 2000, the Windows line security and stability got enhanced by separating those privileges, but with the Starforce drivers, the old system holes and instabilities are back and any program (or virus) can reach the core of your system by using the Starforce drivers as a backdoor.

"Even the Starforce officials admits their software is not 100% copyproof, and that it's causing a lot of trouble to the users:

"'The purpose of of copy protection is not making the game uncrackable - it is impossible. [...] After several months of sails even we recommand the publishers to release patches that remove the copy protection just to make the game play more comfortables to the customers.' Captured source, from the official Starforce forum.

"Indeed, Starforce isn't really doing its job, and it's causing so much trouble to the users that the Starforce team itself ask the game publishers to remove it. Enough said."



To sum it up in my own words: Starfoce = bad, virus like, damages your legitimate hardware, causes many OS issues that can cause repeated crashes, will not uninstall itself when you uninstall the games it came with, and overall has no business being anywhere NEAR a computer.

Still posting irreverent and misleading information?

You should of included a date of publication with that cut and paste job...

The DRM is a complete different program than the one that was claimed to have harmed computers.

Made by the same company, who unwisely decided to keep the name that had been dragged through the mud, yet it is not the same coding.

Myself as well as many others currently play WOP issue free with the current included software.

The irony in your statement is mind blowing.
