I know there's a patch to FB coming up. I won't ask when cause no one knows for sure. I won't ask what's on it cause I read the details of that from other posts.

What I would like to know (if anyone can answer) is how big in file size it might be? If it's available for D/L from this web site or some other 3rd party/mirror site?

If the patch is huge in size it might be a chore to D/L using my traditional dial up service. Would Ubi be offering it as a free CD to those of us not privy to a T1 or DSL at home?

I am assuming it will self install or at least have instructions on how to install it for us of the computer illeterate caste.

TIA for any answers,

Johann (please don't flame me)

Ubi, free? Hell'd freeze over first I guess.

No one knows (or is not telling) how big the file will be but I would not expect it to be less than 20 megabytes in size if the trend with Il2 is anything to go by/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Ah, I remember those days....and not wistfully at all. Thank god for dsl. Anyway, some of the original IL2 patches were pretty large, your best bet is to download them late at night, when net traffic is low. Expect the first patch to take 1-2 hours at usual modem speeds. if you have a friend with a high speed connection, and they can put it to disc, all the better, as then if you lose the file due to reformat etc. you'll have it handy.

Get GetRight , it supports resuming and minimizes on the task bar. About the size I think it will be no more than 20 megs if there will be no new plane. If they decide to add new planes , for sure we may end up with something like 80-100 megs. But this is just a wild guess.
