    I'm running a P4 2.4, Abit is7e board, 512 MB Kingston 2700 DDR, and a Sapphire Atlantis 9600 Pro video card. Will the original boxed IL2 install on XP Home with this rig? If it will, I'll install the latest patches and start flying. Also, how much better is Forgotten Battles? Is it worth the extra $30.00? Thanks, in advance.

    Welcome to il2.[img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif[/img]

    For IL-2 Sturmovik ONLY!

    Install over the box version in the following order:

    1.) il2upgrade_1.1a.exe (75 MB)

    2.) il2upgrade_1.2.exe (28.4 MB)

    If - and ONLY if - you want to modify voice files

    3.) il2upgrade_1.2ov.exe - (38.1Mb)

    Please use 3dgamers for downloads. You'll be glad you did.[img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif[/img]

    The original il2 will fly like a champ. Some install cds have the upgrades on them. FB has everything il2 has except the static campaigns which can be sent to you by anyone. They are .txt files. If you haven't purchased il2 yet, I suggest you get FB only. It has more maps, planes, and will have future upgrades.

    See here for vid and sound settings.

    IL2 will run fine....so will FB.After you get IL2 you will probably want FB... FB is better in many ways...(most ways IMO) but you will like IL2. Welcome aboard!!

    Great info. I don't know how many times I have explained original IL-2 patch order while chatting in Ubi game lobby! Maybe, from now on, I will just send a link back to this post. [img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif[/img]
