Hi all, my g/f bought me some goodies at the wknd, and i'd like some advice on what order to install: IL2:FB, Ace Expansion Pack, Battle Over Europe and Operation Barbarossa:Special Edition. I guess this is a Special Edition, because it says it has been re-designed to be compatible with FB and the original IL2, says that 1.22 patch is on disc.

Any help would be very much appreciated, as i have read and heard great reviews about this sim

When you install FB,just install the boxed version(1.0).Do not patch.AEP has all the patches built in.Also you will need the beta mg_snd.dll(search forum for timeout) to fix time out problems if you go online.

Welcome to the addiction!

Although, that might be the last gift your girfriend ever buys you... LOL

You will know what I mean in a few months.

Your best bet is to get her interested in flight sims as well, as you will discover (Rather quickly) that the more you fly this sim, the more you want to fly it! It's better than crack!

So if you've applied AEP you don't need to apply patch 1.22?

That's correct, the 1.22 patch was pre-AEP (only for FB).

Welcome dmcland72.

All current patches are in AEP. Once that is installed you will have the most current version of IL-2 Forgotten Battles.

Welcome, and congrats!

Can I ask...where did you get "BoE"? I have searched in Canada, no stores have it...I have found "Barbarossa" though?...strange.

Just in time to get addicted to FB and then Pacific Fighters will come along!...your GF will have no trouble with presents at Christmas for you!!!

Lucky!!!

Hi!!

Congratulate your girlfriend on an excellent purchase. There is loads here and on other sites eg 'IL2 Center', 'Netwings.org' and in the IL2 FB section of acompletewasteofspace' which will get you the idea of which aircraft you and fly and fight in what way. Michapma (a user here) has a good site I think.

Have a look at the 'essentials' thread at the top of this board for other helpful stuff, especially 'HyperLobby' - an online setup to play against/with us. One thing here, do not go to Hyperlobby.com. Wrong place and wrong information held on that site.

See you online prehaps?
