S! All

I've had FB sitting around collecting dust for almost a year. Offline life has settled down some and I was wondering if it possible to still get online with FB? Any newbee friendly servers left? Any that are more than just low alt furballs? What version or patches are correct for online use? Lots of questions! :P

You'll find nearly all online flyers using AEP (ver 2.0), with the occasional 1.22 server still around. In the not too distant future there'll be a further patch for AEP, at which point it is likely that most online servers will rapidly upgrade to that version.

Both Ubi.com and HyperLobby (http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz/) still have quite active communities with a variety of servers on both. If you have All Seeing Eye it also supports browsing FB servers. I rarely fly anywhere but HyperLobby, where even at the quietest times (about 10:00am to noon GMT) there're usually over 100, with as many as 700-800 flying at peak times/days.

FB Sitting around collecting dust? What's wrong with that picture? You've only been missing out on the greatest WWII flight sim ever produced, and the community that goes with it. Welcome back! And how about sticking around this time. loll S!

pick up AEP aces expansion addon which puts you from version 1.0 to version 2.0 the majority of servers on HL are version 2.0 there are 3 servers that play versions 1.22, you can download the patch from the updates/patch section on the front page www.il2sturmovik.com (http://www.il2sturmovik.com)

there should be a patch for version 2.0 in 2 weeks to iron out some of the problems &lt;wefg&gt;
