Got it! Flew as wingman yesterday. Thanks for the input. One last tiny detail. The last poster says to patch to 4.10.1 if you're going to mod, and I've read that in many other places as well. But 4.10.1 is no longer available, it goes right to 4.11. So can I put HSFX 5.0 over 4.11? Or should it go over 4.10? Or is there a place to still get 4.10.1. I've read the patching guide on M4Today, but 4.10.1 no longer has a link. I ask because right now I am patched to 4.11 with the hotfix in my stcok folder, and I have a clean 4.10 in my copy folder waiting to add HSFX. I dumped my UP2.1 because I read on SAS242 to put HSFX over a clean install. But if I add 4.11 to my copy and it's wrong I'll have to go through allot to get back to 4.10. So 4.10 or 4.11 (wit hotfix?) for HSFX 5? Thanks, F.
I'd sit back and wait a little bit. HSFX 6 is in beta testing at the moment, and goes over 4.11.1
Do not put HSFX 5 over 4.11, it will not work.
imo HSFX 6 will easily be the new 'best' version of il2.
Re 4.10.1 you can get it at 1c, see here,
for all patches look here,

How long are we talking about before 6 is released? If I mod my copy of 4.10.1 to HSFX 5 for now, I can always copy my stock 4.11.1 to mod to 6. If we're talking about a significant wait.
So I changed the Single mission "Comrades in Arms" for the USAF P51 in the FMB so I was the #4 spot in the squad. Very cool to be able to follow the leader. Strange thing though he never seemed to attack any of the planes in the mission. The #2 and #3 planes did veer off for some attacks but every time I went to do the same I get yelled at "What the Hell! Stay with your leader" But the leader just flew from one way point to the next not doing anything. Is there something I'm missing? Will I be instructed to do something or attack something when the time comes? I'm just trying to understand how things work or are supposed to work. any input is appreciated. F.
The leader's behaviour suggests he has no ammunition. Recheck the loadout for AC#1 in the FMB.

If I recall correctly it cuts in at 3000m distance. There's no penalty for ignoring it in the game, so I suggest that's what you should do. As you're playing number 4 in the squad, you should be flying wing to number 3 anyway, not number 1.
