View Full Version : WTF!? My ubisoft-downloaded version of 4.04m DOES NOT patch properly to 4.071m....

01-19-2007, 02:43 PM
What gives? I installed the patch to the directory (which is actually under Program Files\Boonty Box\IL-2, and now the game will not even start up. I tried moving the folders where the game is installed to Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 and this did not work either. How do I patch my downloaded version of the game without it failing to startup for me!?

Appreciate the help as always.

Because you can't jump from 4.04 to 4.071. Simple as that.

You need 4.05 and 4.06 and 4.07.

Those can be found in the Il-2: 1946 set.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

4.05+4.06+4.07 are now also available to buy & download.

01-19-2007, 03:24 PM
well I have now bought both, and this is turning into an unbelievable nightmare.

I bought the download online and when I went to install it, I clicked on the Boonty .exe and I got a "Boonty Box is up to date" message and then it would not register my new download. To make matters worse, when I access My Account at the UBI website, there are no records of my recent transactions, which should include both the Ultimate Pack and the newly purchased 1946!!! This is nuts. Naturally, I cannot call for tech support and am resigned to this e-mail process. Perhaps I should have bought the physical copies of the games. Sheesh.

so if I add the 1946 Pack, will the new 4.071m work properly, or am I forced to reinstall them all again in sequential order?

First you need to calm down a bit mate
Second... you will need to reinstall 4.071m after you install the addons.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Fantasticos!!! So after applying 1946 (without reinstalling the now-not working original), and then applying the patch, I should be good to go? Thanks!

UBI are usually good about stating which version you can patch over with your newly downloaded patch or version. Pay close attention to that instruction/warning. And read the readme files! Don't just apply patches willy-nilly or you will achieve nothing.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Get yourself down to a known clean state. Back up your ini and User folder then uninstall FB
totally. Reboot. Install FB and patch, making sure you use the patches that match the version
you are at.

You want the clean. For the BEST, do a drive defrag after you uninstall and before install
so your IL2 files are all continuous on the drive and not in bits where other files had been
deleted. It cuts down on drive head movement (delays) tremendously which speeds the game.

Me, I got the DVD through GoGamer.com ($50 + ship), uninstalled and did one install then still
had to patch 4.071. We still await 4.8 final and end of the series but hey the improvement
since 4.05 is worth the $ and aggro.

Hope you get it all smoothed out and running!
