|Beta 3 for DCS A-10C has been released. Better framerates here and there, avionics/weapons fixes and fog, lots of fog.|
The first beta version you download makes you feel you are living the dream. A game you like ... And you are playing it before the crowd. You get that shiny avatar with the words "beta tester" on it and you use it in discussion forums like a badge vested for your savviness, awesomeness, luck or whatever. Your forum posts are read and dissected to the last word in search for new bits and pieces about the game .You are admired, popular, even needed. And if you are the quiet type who don't post anything in any forum, you feel like you got your efforts compensated by a free copy of the game, even when is far from finished.

By the ninth beta download, you have completely gave up and left everything up to those other guys who apparently don't have a life other that this game and report more than ten bugs per beta. - I played ... It didn't crash ... Good job guys fixing that stability problem that I reported before! Yup, those two crashes you got while running at the same time the beta and that other game you bought.
By the time of release, the very sight of the splash screen of the game gives you a headache and carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms. - Send my free copy to this address ... and let me have my life in peace!

In the case of DCS A-10C, we are not required to report bugs. But I am wondering how spent we are going to be when the sim is officially released.
