I hope this is a simple fix.
I've had IL2 Forgotten Battles for a while now, and reinstalled it when I upgraded my computer.
I picked up a three pack today of IL2, Pacific Fighters, and Lock On. Lock On works, IL2 I don't need obviously, and Pacific Fighter stand alone all work.
The Merged version just sits and stares at me when I try to launch it.
The hard drive spins for a second then shuts off and that's it.
I've reinstalled, I've patched to 3.03, I've shaken a dead chicken over the keyboard. It ain't happening.
