anyone kind enough to tell me what patches i need for retail to most current version of just the original IL2? No FB or AEP just IL-2. Also the order in which to apply them. Thanks.

Get the updates here (http://www.il2sturmovik.com/games_elts/fb_updates.php). If you are starting from FB2.0 which is Forgotten Battles and the Aces Expansion Pack then install them this way 2.0 > 2.01 then add 2.04. If you just have Forgotten Battles then you can only patch up to version 1.22. If you do not have Forgotten Battles Gold then I suggest you get the Aces Expansion... it is more than worth the price and will make it so all subsequent patches will be available to you.. plus you will be able to fly online as most of us are up to FB 2.04. Hope that helps. Welcome aboard and you also might want to check the Sturmovik Essentials link in my signature. It will help you get underway to unlocking the full potential of this sim.

Why are you ppls allways supplying the UBI links??? Everyone should know by now that the server from UBI has NO BANDWIDTH and will drag download on (sometimes costing money!).

It is FAR better to goto 3DGamers or any other big patch download server...

I mean - you are doing people NO favour if you refer them to UBI - well - unless they have 56kbps http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

patches for FB:
http://www.3dgamers.com/games/il2sturmovik2/
Patches for IL-2 Sturmovik:
http://www.3dgamers.com/games/il2sturmovik/

Use a download accelerator if you have a slow connection, http://www.download.com/3120-20-0.html?qt=DAP&tg=dl-2001&search.x=0&search.y=0&search=+Go%21+
This will let you stop and later resume the download http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif - if you have a fast connection it will look for extra download mirrors on the net and increase your download bandwidth.

For FB-AEP install FB (V1.0) AEP (V2.0) AEP Patch 2.01 (V2.01) then Patch 2.04 (V2.04)

For IL2-Sturmo install Il-2 Sturmo (V1.0), then install Patch 1.1a (V1.0-&gt;1.1) then Upgrade 1.2 (V1.1 -&gt; V1.2)
For the last update you could use the 1.2ov version (you can change voice files then).

Question: Did you back-up your files?
Answer: I didn't know they had a reverse...

My link was to the tech forum, User Fixes That may help others thread, where the post links to 3dgamers for upgrades and airwarfare if he'd like to get BBQs German/Russian to English Voice Pack.

thanks for the help. i got this game bundled with my new v-card and just now found it again and decided to put it on and give it a try. anyone else hosting the first patch the 1.00-1.01a ubi's pages are shut down and the only link at 3d gamers is only letting me have it at 5K/sec. ill be d/l all night. should be alot faster. anyway thanks for the help. ill give this a go and then see if i like it enough to pick up FB and AEP.

didn't mean you steve http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif - your post wasn't on yet when I replied - but when you're here...

Was it ever explained by ubi why they advert the 1.22 patch on the FB AEP chatrooms ?

Hmmm if you have 56kbps - use DAP ! - see link above... downloading this kind of big files will often result in connection loss... with DAP you can resume otherwise you'll have to start all over...

If you have a faster connection - try another link there - choose one close to your home...

and eh - I feel for you - better not download - not play at all - it's addictive and there should be a warning on it ! lol

Welcome to your new home - say goodbye to family and friends first before you play http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

the other links on 3dgamers do not work and the ones that ubisoft has linked are no longer valid. i have cable and the il2 1.2 patch came in just fine but the first one is only coming in at 5K thats why i was wondering if someone else had a link to it, fileplanet has extremely long wait today also so just trying to get in the air quicker. thanks again. and bye bye life.

As to why . . . ubi? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif I'm not even going to start to go there, not even in a PT.

thewailers1620, just checked the original il2 links and they are active, but there is a wait.

DO an explore on the CD, you may be lucky as some of the later ones have the patches on them in a folder, failing that if you are uk based page me and i will burn them on a cd and post them to you..

Just tried - d/l was ok with 650kBytes/sec http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Just re-try when a link is full

There's probably some hot new patch out http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif - they do host other games too ya know...
