hi guys
been away for a while

just got the 1946 disk and trying to install it

does it install into the IL-2 FB folder ?

I got it to install but it was in a different folder and none of my old pilots or anything were in it

thanks for any help

It installs to it's own folder.

You should be able to copy your old /users/ directory over from FB. The same goes for skins and conf.ini

okay thanks

but

what about the other add on's and what not ?

so basicly, if you want to have the BOE, TLDs OstFront, keep them in IL-2 fB, and if you want to play the 46 go to that folder ?

I also got 1946 about 2 weeks ago. I already have IL2FB+AEP+PF.

I asked kind of the same question and here's what Bearcat99 told me:

Yes they should.... 46 will install to a different folder... 46 will go to C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 FB installs to the Ubi Soft folder.. Just copy your users, missions, config, records, quicks & paint schemes folders. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

It worked great... No problems and I have all of my skins, missions, campaigns and settings the same as I already had them before!

1946 is the whole game, so if you tried to install it as an upgrade to your current folder it would just overwrite all your files. Now that would be silly programming. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
