When I say I know nothing about computers, that's not entirely true. I know how to turn one on and how to put in the silver disk with the fungusy looking Hurricane on the front. (Just being facetious all, I love pootling around the skies in a little Hurri, pretending I've got a handlebar moustache and that I'm one of "the Few" - Tally Ho! what what.)

To the point, gentle reader.

I've tried to download the patch a couple of times now and the closest I got was 4 mins 1 second away from completion. Nearly four hours of internet time down the swanny - I cried like a girl.

So. I'd be as chuffed as a little monkey if anyone could tell me how to download this brute successfuly.

I'm downloading it into the Forgotten Battles File in the C drive. Am I correct in making this assumption, or should it go into some other destination?

I'm also in Sarawak, Malaysia, where data packets still come in envelopes with stamps on.

I'll leave the last words to the Bobster

I AM THE GREMLIN
I WAS THERE
M M M M M M MAKING MISCHIEF
IN THE AIR;
AND
ALWAYS WILL BE
WHENEVER MAN
FLIES IN THE FACE
OF CREATION'S PLAN

Yep, save it to c:
And get yourself a download manager that can continue an interrupted download. I'd recommend Go!Zilla that should be available at www.tucows.com (http://www.tucows.com)

I suggest trying other dl-sites. Test em for 30 secs to see which one gives you highest kb/s.

Another download manager is to be found at:

http://www.getright.com

Getting one of these will mean that is you lose your connection, then retry, it will start at the place you left off, not all over again. I live in 56K land, and they are a godsend.

And listin to Ven, since he knows a scary looking guy looking for a stapler /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

unzip the file into the folder your IL2FB is installed and overwrite the files if it asks /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I would NOT recommend Gozilla! It's spyware and a very invasive program. Dont touch it!!

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

Spyware? Really? I never had any troubles with it. But then again it's been some time, and I used to run an older version.
