The IL-2 :FB 1.2b patch is now available for download from our servers. There are two files: RC_01 (15 Mb) and RC_02.zip (75 Mb). Please make sure to backup your IL-2 directory before applying the patch and read the statement below to find out what issues this patch tackles. Again, we must stress this is a Public Beta and not the final version.

<font color="#FF0000" size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Note : This is the Public Beta version of the 1.2 patch. Please make sure to back-up your IL-2 directory and before applying the patch. To install, simply unzip the files to your IL-2 directory.</font>

<font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><u>Changes in 1.2b</u></font>

<font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">1. Decreased durability of I-16 and FW-190 in a really visible conditions. Some other - too but not too much.

</font><font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">2. Corrected bugs that was found for that time (it doesn't means that all)

</font><font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">3. We did more "rare" palms on the pacific online map for better FPS. So we would like to know your opinion about this decreasing is it enough?


</font><font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">4. Reduced the drag in "radiator open" program modules in a sim. It was wrong last time due to fact that we forgot to change it in 1.11 with the common changes of FM calculations. Sorry for that. Please remember that the term radiator open used not only for the visible radiator cowls, but for internal devices as well, that have also the drag increasing due to increasing the air flow across them inside the fuselage.

</font><font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">5. For those who fly the Me-262 high, we corrected the characteristics of the jet engine on altitudes higher than 7-8,000 meters. That was bug that we never received to our il2beta@1c.ru address.

</font><font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">6. Bug in climb rate of Las also corrected.

</font><font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">7. Changed the textures of Pacific map.

8. Many more that we will try to list in final readme.

</font><font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">9. There are two sound dlls, test both and select which one is better for you currently. About these DLLs do not write us. Speak in Oleg's Ready room please.
When our sound programmer gets back from vacation we will think what to do for these that hear loud on a great distance....
Probably we will organize series of test with these guys and will try to get from them the right info, that we can't duplicate on any of our PCs and sound cards with right settings for them. Oleg Maddox will let you know on the forum when we should start with this test.

Note.1 Your Dynamic campaign will not work 100% before final release of 1.2 version. With final release will be released the corrections for DGen - decreased ability to be captured. It will depends on wich distance you are from front line and on which distance you are for closest enemy units.
There also will be some other modifications that use the new features of the sim.

The last report we will accept on Thursday and then we will compile final version and we will not return back with any fixes untill release of Expansion Pack were we plan the new features and some possible fixes.</font>

EDIT: fixed broken link (RC_02.zip)

Thunak:
Does the RC01.zip available from the main page take the place of RC01_new.zip?
I already have the "old" RC01.zip. Then I was told of a new RC01_new.zip (which I cannot find a server to D/L) and now this RC01.zip on the UBI mainpage.
Which one do we need, assuming we have RC02.zip?

Confused,

yes you need the RC_01new zip with the RC_02 to have the valid patch
the RC_01new is 15,5M so i asume its the right one ?

These are the files Oleg tried to post last week and are the most recent versions.

RC_01 contains a single file: files.sfs that you should unzip into you IL-2 directory. This is the most recent version.

RC_02 contains all the media files and skins as well as 2 sound .dlls (md_snd.dll). You should try one, then the next and decide which one is best.

I cannot stress enough that this is still beta software so please backup your files, and if you don't know what you're doing, wait for the final version /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I've been meaning to ask..

What the heck does :
"1. Decreased durability of
- I-16 and FW-190 in a really visible conditions" Why would they be less "Durable" Visible maybe?

Mean? I think something got lost in the translation...

well the third link

"Download from the support page "

works great
the link to the files is at the bottom of the page and i tested the speed on both files as they downloaded i averaged 530/Kbps on both files i got the 02 file in just under 2 minutes so if i were you guys i would use this link it's fast and it works

seeing as you killed all the ones i put up in a real hurry
have fun boys

decreased ability to be captured - will be present in the final release. It will depend on wich distance you are from front line and the distance you are to the closest enemy units.
