Has Ubisoft discontinued multiplayer support for the original IL2? I click on play at ubi.com, and it shows page cannot be displayed.

Hyperlobby (http://hyperfighter.sk/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=2&orderby=dateA)
Try that.
I just looked, 14 people logged on now, for IL2 (original version).
Good luck.

Thanks Badatit, theres not many people playing by the looks of it. Which expansion are most people playing?

IL-2 Sturmovik 1946. However your computer should be much better than the original IL2 requirements to play that version.

Minimum requirements:
1Ghz CPU
512MB RAM
Graphic card with 64MB
4GB Disk Space

I would say you need at least to double those requirements (except disc space), to play the game.

I easy match and quadrouple those anyway. What version of IL2 original are people using, every person I ask on Hyperlobby says a different one. Also where can I buy 1946 on its own in the UK? Thanks.

Patch order for the entire game series. (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/4721047273)

For IL2 Sturmovik original, latest version is v1.2 or v1.2ov (they're compatible online, only difference is the latter allows users to edit the AI pilot voice files).

For Forgotten Battles latest patch is 1.22 but you'll very rarely see it online.
For Forgotten Battles + Ace expansion you'll want 2.04

For Pacific Fighters installed as a standalone you'll want 4.04

For Pacific Fighters installed as an add-on to Forgotten Battles/AEP you'll want 4.08m which includes 3 pay for download only add-ons.

The simplest path to get to the most recent (and popular) version is buy the IL2 1946 complete version on DVD (v4.07m, available in reputable game stores across UK I believe) and then get the one remaining patch (4.08m) to bring you up to date. If you're lucky you may even get a DVD with 4.08m already added, some of the recent production are doing that I believe.

Thanks for the help. I worked out on Amazon I could buy the three packs for 7 new, so they should be arriving in a couple of days. I'll use the pacth order you gave Tully. Thanks.

Describe exactly what you ordered, because something doesn't sound right here. What you need is a single pack: IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, then there is a patch to download.

The highest you can patch that will 4.04m, which is fine if you just want to fly offline, as it's getting more and more difficult to find 4.04m servers online. There still are a few.

Most people online are using 4.08. In order to get from 4.04m to 4.08, you would have to buy three more paid add-ons, 4.05, 4.06, and 4.07 (assuming you could actually find them). That's why everyone suggested you just buy the IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 DVD, which has everything on a single disk, except for one patch to download.

These three are available in one package in the 1946 add-on.

Look here: Link to 1946 at Ubi shop, UK (http://shop.ubi.com/Prod_ExtDesc.asp?catalogid=528&id=97)

(Like dbillo said, get a hold of the 1946 DVD...)

So the 1946 disc still hasn't got the other games that I've just bought then?

EDIT: Also:

Much lower price.

Yup...IL2 1946 DVD...that's the one you want.
It'll either be version 4.08m or 4.07m.

If it's 4.07m, it can easily be patched up to 4.08m....lotsa mirrors available for downloading it.

Sorry, I should have been more clear: The one I linked to is the downloadable (so no disc) 1946 aded-on, which is quite different from the IL2 Sturmovik 1946 DVD disc...

The add-on just bringing version 4.04m (=FB+AEP+PF patched) up to 4.07m (addon is 4.05m, 4.06m, 4.07m), where the disc contains a complete install up to 4.07m (or maybe 4.08m)

As for pricing, indeed it looks like the disc can be had cheaper than the downloadable add-on... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
