Hoping to get some help from all you knowledgable gents (and ladies, perhaps...) around here with a small problem....here goes.

I installed Pacific Fighters standalone after I got it since I didn't have the Aces exp. for FB.

Well, I have since purchased the aces pack, and now I'm wondering if there's any way to install the merged version of PF without uninstalling my standalone version.

I really don't want to have to redo all my keybindings and stuff if I can avoid it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks!

You should be able to just click the option to install to FB+AEP. Thats what I done after I installed the PF stand alone version first. You'll probably have to setup your key binings again for the merged version as I know of no way to transfer them from PF stand alone.

You can have both a merged and a stand alone install on the same system.
Add AEP to your FB install and than apply PF as an add-on (should show the option in the auto-run menu).

Regarding key bindings just copy the settings.ini file from your pilot folder in PF (found in /Users/~pilot name~) across to your pilot folder in FB+AEP+PF.

There are several files in USER folder, one is backup Defualt settings (allows you to reset to Default in the menu). All this gets confusing.

Just copy the whole user folder.

Anyway, always keep a backup file of your user file.

Wow - thanks for the quick responses!

I tried the autorun, but it only has the option to start or uninstall PF standalone now.

Make sure you have correctly installed AEP over FB then reboot your computer before trying to install PF over FB/AEP.

Well, it's now official. I am an absolute idiot. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

After a few hours of scratching my head here, I finally remembered that Pacific Fighters came on two discs. (In a rather nice DVD-style case too I might add.....)

Anyway, I had been using disc 2 all this time.

Disc 1 worked much better. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Thanks again for helping out an old, addled, brain challenged dolt such as myself tho. Now that I'm registered here, I'll try and contribute a little more rather than just lurking. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

May your cannons never jam and your cables stay intact!

Red out.
