Ok, Pe-2 is officially here, I downloaded it and installed this morning to make sure there will be no problems.

Steps to download are easy. Existing ENGLISH speaking users can log into UBI with their current name -> www.ubi.com/UK (http://www.ubi.com/UK) (IF YOU DONT HAVE AN ACCOUNT, CREATE ONE) click shopping and type Pe-2 in the Search field. Once you get there, add it to shopping card and go to check out. Fill out all necessary stuff and get your toy. It`s pretty self explanatory http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I tried posting direct link to download, but it redirects to French site, so it`s better to do it as described above if you don€t speak French.

Server hosts your Dedicated server version 405m: http://files.games.1c.ru/perl_harbor/files/patches/server405m.exe

Nothing seems to work with the download. The installer gives a message 'You have to have the full version installed..'. And I do, all games and patches legally purchased. The BB does not seem to find the IL2 as it is not installed on the C-drive but on an other partition.

I have always thought that complainments about UbiSoft are just some malevolent whining but it seems that there may be good grounds behind that attitude.

Did you try to run setup without BB? Setup exe is in BB folder.

MarcusaQ
04-28-2006, 09:39 AM
Yes, Crazyivan, I did. I tried it first through BB, then alone from desktop, IL2 folder, and BB switched off - nothing changed the situation.

I've got another question Ivan. I purchased the DL and saved the BB exe to my USB drive. I'll execute when I get home. Do you think there will be an issue since it's not the same PC I used to purchase?

btw...I have my merged install on my D: partition as well.

No, should not have any problems. It might ask you to unlock exe again, just enter the key that provided in e-mail.

I wonder if installation on D is causing problems. Hmmm.

The program is looking for your game registry entry, if you have an old install and have moved it or renamed it, or moved it from one pc top another the registry might be incorrect or missing.

Someone in another thread said that they just moved their full current game install to a temp dir, reinstalled FB only then copied over that with their complete game from teh temp dir and it installed fine.

The Booty Box installer will not run.

It installed fine but everytime I try to run it, I get a message saying "This programs has caused and error and Windows is shutting it down. You must restart."

I am running W2K and everything else is fine.

Any ideas?

Hey Ivan

Question.. I have BootyBox installed.. it seems to be DL "il2-pe2.exe" right now. Once that is done, Im guessing that this "il2-pe2.exe" executable is a stand alone file that we will be able to run in the future when ever we do a re-install.. that is to say we dont need to go though this BootyBox download **** each time right? Just burn the "il2-pe2.exe" to a CD and run it.. Please say yes! <G>

Retrofish
04-28-2006, 10:42 AM
I got it working.

I had the 'You need the full installation' message then after a bit of random clicking about in the Bootywhatever suddenly it launched and a bit into the process it says 'Internal error: an attempt was made to expand the "app" constant before it was initialized'...

Anyway, it seems to have expanded all the files I need to patch to 4.05m.

What I'm worried about is the future add-ons and their installation procedures and their approval of the alternative installation method I had to use for 4.05.

Oh well, we shall see.

Just an advice for the payment stuff http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

With no credit card, I was keen to get it today, and I find out that I had 300 "loyality" points (don't know what they're called on the english shop site) because I bought stuff there previously (SH3 + recognition manual and Heroes of M&M 5 Collectors Edition to be precise - that's 2 games). Those 300 points were worth 15", so I could buy the Pe-2 addon without actually paying, now a single one of these points left http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Maybe someone else can make use of that and hasn't recognized it yet http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Then it will ask you for the code that sent to you by e-mail to unlock exe. Then it`s all yours. Setup is in the bootybox directory.

Finally I got it working. This is what I did: I made a backup copy of my FB folder just as TPN_Cephas advised. Then I re-installed FB again after which the Pe-2 file did install. It seems that it really was a game registry problem.

But, after this PF did not launch any more. Pe-2 installed the addon to a folder of that BB-installer program on C-drive (I dont remember the program having asked whether I want anything in my Windows C-drive..).

Well, I copied the contents of the Pe-2 addon to my FB folder on D-drive. PF merged install launches now normally and shows the version 4.05.

This kind of problems should not be very difficult to predict when planning a vice installation procedure. I really hope UbiSoft would do something to improve the situation before the next addon.

When finally launching the game I could see that Oleg & fellows have done a really good job with Pe-2, the first experience of flying it was truly positive. I really appreciate your work and effort for this great historical sim!

Thanks a million Crazyivan & TPN_Cephas for your help!!

You should be able to. I haven't had any success downloading it with my VISA from Michigan but several fellow Michiganians (always hated Michiganders...) have downloaded it no problem.

In fact, the only complaints I've read are from people using VISA so I'm thinking it's a problem with that particular kind of card.

Regardless, can't hurt to try!

A check with QMP proved that the Pe-2 was indeed ready to go! It all worked ...A satified USof A Customer!

Yes I do have proof. Go to the BootnyBox web page and when you read their terms of use it says straight that you agree when using their product that they can and will collect all of you personnal information. Now keep in mind they also say they will not sell your information either unless they are bought out by another company. You should realy go read it for yourself.

May be banned for this.

Now to get around it. Set up a crappy computer that you do not care about and do not have information on. Download the addon and copy over the PE-2 EXE program to the computer that you have your game on. Then delete on the other computer this BoonyBox.

I have just finished testing what you asked about above.

I copied the PE-2 Add-On to a CD and a Thumb Drive and installed it (from both) on a fresh copy of the game. It worked fine as did the Conformation Key. (Both times as well.)

Norton Ghost comes in handy for this. (I have a "C" partition image with a fresh install that I use just to test patches and add-ons for the game.)

I even deleted the new .exe and used both SturmStab 6.0 and the old 4.02M default *.exe to start the game. No problems.

Also, I have installed PE-2 from within Boonty Box and from outside of it. Additionally, I have also installed it (fresh) with Boonty already removed.

Okay, you trust this person has used tracking software to ensure that the same number of files were removed as installed? i would bank on it that the spyware parts are left behind even if you uninstall. its a choice the managers of the program make, if they can trick you they will unless threatened with legal action.

So I type "Pe-2" into the search field in all various combinations and it does not show up. It refuses to show up. Whats the deal?

Decided to take the plunge and go the download route as well - only I don't see any reference to Pe-2 either on Ubisoft's site (except in French - and I can't communicate in that language).

I'm not really that happy about the add on not being available on cd/dvd either.

Assuming you're on one of the international sites, click on shoppping in the upper righthand corner. Should be on the first page.

The French site managed to display in English so it was easier for me to purchase. All the rest though is in French and I have no idea where the file was downloaded to (it all happened in French).

ps. up and running now - found the installer, executed it, validity confirmed, etc.Pretty painless process but more trouble than was really necessary.

Well, I did the dl thru the french site, worked well, had fast download speeds. Got my unlock key...all fine..game won't launch. Begins to, like regular forgotten battles, then does nothing. I have everything, but maybe the whole file has to be moved to the forgotten battles file?? Not sure what to do...could someone explain in a real dumbed down fashion for me? Thanks in advance!

Yes you can... just make sure you keep you key info as well!! I know a guy that was able to install from a copy (he's on Dialup)... he just had to purchase the key. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Why don't they just supply a link to the program when you purchase the unlock key. I think Matrix games does that when you buy online. They send your your unlock key and a link by email. If you loose it you just have to provide your order number for them to resend it.
