OK, FB V 1.11 and all others preceeding have run just fine on my machine, 1.11 still does infact.
I installed another copy of FB, patched it to 1.11 and ran it from the exe. in Windows Explorer....worked fine as 1.11
Now, I downloaded and installed the leaked beta (1.2b) and it seems fine, the new maps are listed in FMB, the new planes in Object Viewer and QMB...but, as soon as I try to load a mission, it gets to 23% Loading Static Objects (same every time), then dumps me to desktop.
I figured it might be a problem with the leaked version of the patch, and installed RC_01 over it in the hope that that would fix it, it didnt. Version number now says 1.2RC, and exactly the same thing happens.
Now, as I say 1.11, and all others preceeding work and did work just fine, so it is something in the new files.
Any ideas? hints? anyone have same problem and find a work-around?

Thanks, Blue

Runs 1.11 at excellant/perfect settings no probs, smooth as silk.....wont run 1.2B or the RC_01 version of 1.2RC at all.

I am having the same problem, first time I have ever had a problem. I can't believe we are the only ones unless we got a bad copy/link to 1.2beta. I have resisted until this RC02 debacle, I just wanted to see B-17 and P-51 over the weekend, now I can't even run the game. If I go to load map in FMB I get the same error when trying to load a map.

I just re-installed the 1.11 patch and changed the name of the P-51 skins folder back to "P-51D-20NA" and I think everything is ok. Still don't know why I can't use 1.2beta without crashing to desktop. I'll wait until the RC02 is released before I get concerned.

Yep, tried just putting the whole 1.2 Beta folder in, then tried copying the contents of 1.2Beta folder directly over 1.11.
Tried RC_01 onto a 'clean' 1.11 install, allso tried 1.11 with the beta and RC_01.

Guess I will just have to wait....I just wanted to see the '17s in flight.

did you try copying over the files separately? the 6 main files need to go in the main directory and there are 6 folders which go in different places. not sure if all the folders need to be in place but the files do.

the 6 files are fb_3do04.SFS fb_maps03.SFS fb_sound03.SFS files.SFS il2_core.dll and mg_snd.dll

files.SFS, il2_core.dll, and mg_snd.dll all need to overwrite existing files, so you should make a backup of these if you plan to go back to 1.11 without re-installing.

there are 4 skin folders, 1 mission folder, and 1 speech folder which are included (i'm not sure if they are necessary.)

i hope this helps. if nothing else, the official release will be coming shortly so you won't have to wait long.

if you are not comfortable with making these changes, it's probably best not to as there is a risk of stuff going wrong (as with all unofficial stuff.)

if you do it this way it works from 1.11 if your scared it won't work then make a copy of your il2 forgotten battles folder and keep it safe then follow these steps

1 unzip it 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

enjoy the 1.2 beda

OK...the beta zip I have only has 4 files and the folders..
It weighs in at 76,046 kb and contains :

fb_3do04.sfs
fb_maps03.sfs
fb_sound03.sfs
and files.sfs
Plus 3 folders, missions, paintschemes and samples, with subfolders.

So, what two files am I missing? and could someone who has 'em tell me where I can get 'em please?

I just wanna see the '17s in action http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif and will more than likely be away from my, or any other PC for a couple of weeks.
Can anyone hel[p me out?

Bluedog,

Unzip your 1.2 beta patch, look inside the folder, hit "view" up top in your window, then go to "folder options" at bottom, then go to "view" tab and check "show all files." Then look back in your 1.2beta folder and there will be the core.dll and another .dll file. They are the two missing files. You are unable to see them currently as they are hidden files. Copy the two .dll files into your FB directory. This is your problem I am 99% sure.
