Ok i only recently bought Il-2 but this was only because i only recently got a computer good enough to run it in full graphics mode and how sweet it looks. Obiviously this is not my problem. I bought this game on the belief that i could fly all the flyable planes straight away in campaign mode and choose from all of the campaigns that the manuel so thoroughly describes. Not even the manuel tells me how to access anything but the opening of hostilities campaign of 1941 as a Il-2 (first model), 109 (something) or an early Russian fighter. It there something i'm missing? Or what. Some one plz tell me as i really want to see the Stalingrad battlefield and i can't wait 1 year for it when my in-game campaign finally ticks the clock to November 1942.
Thx for reading this...

You have the option , when you choose the front where you will fight , to jump directly to a certain year. my comp is fecked up badly these day , so I am not sure what years they jump in. You don't have to start from the beginning of the campaign you know. Also , make sure that the front you choose is the correct one , otherwise you will not see Stalingrad , I believe is Center whatever. As for planes , once signing up for army there's little you can do. You can't change your plane at will. The chief will give ya order what plane you will fly , you know /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

EDIT:UH! That's right , which game eyou play? IL2 or IL2/FB?

Sorry, can you specify whether you mean IL-2 Sturmovik or Forgotten Battles?

If IL-2 Sturmovik, I think you have to start at the beginning for campaign mode. However, you can make the missions available to yourself to play as single missions. If this is your problem, I can tell you more or less off the top of my head how to do this.

Cheers,
Mike

You won`t REALLY be waiting 1 year, y`know! Seriously, though if you`re talking about FB it`ll prob take a couple o weeks or so (instant if you`re wounded). Or like the others say select the later campaign year.
