Warbirds force opens its "FACEBOOK" page upon game exit.
I believe that this is a pure annoyance to many players.

For community building purposes, I believe it would be much more beneficial to open a window to "THIS FORUM" on game exit instead.

New players seeking help and advice
Player discussion
Reporting game issues
Squad recruitment
Event info & News
Flight model changes
etc etc

(Warbirds can always add a LINK to their facebook page here and/or a LIVE chat button!)

I'm sure many people don't even know that this forum exists.

Please complete this poll if you concur.

I vote for open none. This annoyance should be removed. It only helps make people not want to play the game.

I agree 100% with Bollok.

However, I agree 101% with qweqwe.

I think there should be a button on the exit page,
maybe as a menu item (see sample image below).

The buttons and text for the menu on the title screen
are quite large. Maybe reducing them to 80% is better
and that will make room for another button titled:

I know this will take a bit of work by Dan, but
it is definately worth it.

I like the idea of sending folks to the Community
Forum. This is preferable to sending them to
a site they probably already have seen, since
they downloaded the game from there. Duh!


Doesn't the big WARBIRDS logo at the top of
the page on the Forum direct users to the
main iENT Warbirds page?

I voted to go to the forum on exit, but I agree the sim should not force open any webpage on exit no matter what page it is.

For those of you who don't want any page on exit, ( which I would have voted for if it was an option. ) you just need to do the following on your computer or where ever you have your game loaded.

Open your warbird folder where the game is installed. In there, you will find a file called "quiturl.txt" DO NOT DELETE IT.

You will need to open it in notepad or your favorite text editor and delete all the text written on that file. Then SAVE it.

The facebook page will not open anymore.

If you do a Game update of any sort recheck this file to make sure the update has not fixed the file. If so delete the text and resave.
