My friends and I are currently running 1.22 with one of them hosting on a dedicated server PC.

If I install the AEP ver 1.22:-

1. will I still be able to run with my friends on mixed AEP and 1.22 versions
2. Will the server version have to be upgraded to AEP to accomodate the AEP users or are we stuck at 1.22 for the other users
3. If the server is upgraded to AEP will 1.22 users be able to use it?

thanks for any replies,

Installing AEP will upgrade FB to v2.0. Both server and client must have the same version.

Dual install

thanks for that - which I have done.

Several things to sort out like I can't Esc the film at the start and the nmouse wont move the cursor in main menu etc,

Perhaps to do with the settings.

Can I copy my old FB settings files and if so which ones?

thanks

Does anyone know if they are going to upgrade regular IL2FB to 2.0? Meaning for MP purposes? Because there is no way I can convince a friend who is not into it nearly as much as I am to buy the expansion.

Anyone?

I sure hope you cant upgrade without buying the expansion, that definately would not be good since alot of us have bought the expansion.

You and your friend who doesn't want to buy the expansion can however play multiplayer via IP if you both have the same FB version.

One good question why on earth would you not want to go out and get the AEP heck tell your friend he'll be getting alot more aircraft and that in itself makes it worth buying. Course you could always let your friend try your game.
