ok here is how to install the release canidate

it would be a good idea to make a back up of your forgotten battles folder before you install the RC patch incase you mess up the install then you have a copy of your game to refer to



1 unzip the RC01 and RC02 to a seperate folder on your C drive make sure you have use subfolders checked in winzip and it will then put all the files into there respective folders

2 ok now that you have unziped it to your C Drive open the folder that it unziped to you should see 3 folders and 6 files

3 copy the 6 files to your main il2 fb folder it'll ask you to over write say yes

4 now back to your il2 beda folder now open the missions folder and you'll see a folder called camapign open it now you see a folder called US copy that folder

5 now go to your IL2FB folder you'll see a missions folder open and then you'll see the campaign folder open that in there you'll see 4 folders now paste the US folder in there so that you have 5 folders

6 now back to your il2 beda folder and open the paimt schemes folder im there is a skins folder open that in there you'll see 4 folders select all and copy all the 4 folders

7 now back to your IL2FB folder you'll see the paint schemes folder open that and you'll see the skins folder open that and then paste the 4 folders you copied into there it'll ask you to overwrite 1 say yes

8 now back to your il2 beda folder and open the samples folder in that you'll see speech open that there you'll see a folder marked GB copy that

9 now go to your IL2FB folder you'll see a samples folder open that you'll see the speech folder open that in there you'll see some folders now paste the GB folder in there

now your done

this can be done from either 1.11 or the 1.2 beta and you will now have the 1.2 RC version installed

enjoy the 1.2 Release canidate

I'm at work right now and can not test this, but ....

Back up FB first /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


[deleted] - back up first - and unzip to your FB directory - nothing simpler.

... other ways, maybe easier :


backup Il2 FB main folder (just in case)


rename the main Il2 FB folder as the winzip extractor create the main folder after extraction. (when you use the option "Use folder names")

than unzip both RC01 and RC02 in the renamed main IL2 FB folder.

than copy the name of the backuped folder and rename (by pasting) the main il2 FB folder in which you just extracted the updtae.

here we go...!

I think I'll just wait for Ubi to release the official version.....then I won't be disappointed by any changes made in the b or release version to the final version.

ummmm..

Its not that complicated.

> Simply unzip both RC01 and RC02 into the il2 directory, same as always...

> Thats all I did and it worked perfectly (as always).. I even did RC2 before RC1...

In the past, when I got a build setup the way I like, I copy the whole directory to cd. If I have to do a system rebuild later for whatever reason, I install FB, then paste my setup over the install.. Viola! no need to figure it all out again...

happy hunting...

My o My you guys are making this sound like brain surgery...


Simply make a new folder on your desktop name it RC

Extract rc_01 & _02 into the RC folder

Then open the RC folder & copy all the folders & files that are in the RC folder & paste them into your FB directory located here...

C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles

when it asks overwright bla bla bla tell it YES TO ALL each time!

The End.

Im having problems with RC_01.

I managed to download RC_02 and the archive has all the files in it. Different story for RC_01. Im using GetRight and about two of them, the download got to the end and then tried to re-connect (deleting the download). I downloaded from UBI help and it was corrupt. Now i just downloaded from UBI ftp and the only file in the archive is files.SFS

Someone help.....please

I simply combined the contents of RC_01 and RC_02 into one folder and named this folder IL2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles. I then zipped this folder and moved on to next step.

Next I made a backup of the installed game as version 1.11

Now I simply unzipped the IL2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles zip file patch to the Ubisoft directory and made sure the use folder names option was checked off.

Wallah...patch complete.

When booting the game you're game version should now be RC_01.
