1. Dang
2. Dang!
3.

Hm it's a bit fuzzy - is it a "full" platinium edition with all editions? Picture shows platinium edition - text talks about upgrade FC.2.0

Also - this thread will be moved over to LockOn forum shortly methinks ...

I think the picture is a mistake, webmaster probably jumping the gun a bit.

We Have yet to hear of any agreement with UBI, but this looks very Promising!

Edit:- just thinking out loud, but I think Lock On Platinum would be the wrong name for what is a new product, it sounds like budget title. Lock ON 2 would be far better for such a combined product.

Agreed, but if you were to package an all in one Lock On product (which requires UBI agreement), what would sound better,

Lock On Platinum or
Lock On 2?

Lock On Platinum sounds to me like a budget title, however Lock On 2 isn't really justified as it isn't a true sequel. What could you call such a product to give the impression that it is new?

I have a quick question regarding this new Flaming Cliffs release. I own LockOn: Modern Air Combat and DCS Black Shark, but I somehow missed Flaming Cliffs and never bought it.

Now, with the new release of Flaming Cliffs, do I need to original Flaming Cliffs or is the new version stand-alone?

Cheers,
Rainer

Theres already Lock on Gold, which is lock on and flaming cliffs combined and generally platinum is considered one higher than gold, thus it makes sense to call the lock on & flaming cliffs & flaming cliffs 2.0 pack "platinum"

Lock on 2, sounds too much like a sequel which flaming cliffs 2.0 isn't.

I believe there will be an Upgrade in the form of a patch from FC 1.12 aswel as an FC 2.0 from LO 1.1...

EDIT: upgrade from either LO or FC...

Thanks for the input, Joey45. I really hope that I can install the new FC from the boxed version of LoMac. Don't want to miss out on FC again.
