That create-folder and copy stuff was a little confusing - got it, but now im wondering what I may be missing.

Is it me, or are there a lot of aircraft with nothing other than void skins? (both PF pure and IL2FBPF?)

Are there default skins that are other-than pristine-clean planes? Having the look of well-used planes are neat.

So - the missing panels / grfx bugs vs Perfect now corrected?

Don't download the patch from Gamershell.com The pinheads there mislabelled the patches so they have the merged listed as the standalone and the standalone listed as the merged.

Totally screwed up my game install and now I have to waste a bunch of time uninstalling and reinstalling the ****ed thing plus all my missions, maps, skins and whatnot.

If someone's already registered with Gamershell, you might consider letting them know.

Bunch of FM tweaks, two new planes (a Yak7 variant and a P-47 variant) and a new map (generic NW Europe map, 100x80km)

I did the same thing. Downloaded the "4.02m" and installed it without making a backup.

It was my fault.

I then downloafed the 30mb 4.02m (the real one) and installed it.

So far it seems to be working alright... have the new map and, so far, the FM seems stable.

You might want to give it a try. Perhaps the additional 6 mb are for AEP and Forgotton Battles?

Good Luck

Is it just me? I think I'm getting better frame rates.. Overall seems smoother.

I have a few minor graphic glitches over water that I hadn't seen before, but overall experience seems better.

Thanks for the update!

(I didn't replace the .dll as I'm not getting the crash problem)

There is supposed to be a Tempest and a new map of NW Europe in the new patch. Where is it?

The short answer is that they are only available for the 'merged' version of Pacific Fighters.

Tempest is an AI aircraft added in 4.01m. The cockpit hasn't ben released yet. The NW Europe map is in 4.02m but its not a QMB map. You'll need to open FMB and make a mission or else download a custom mission or Ian Boys' excellent DGen campaign. See this thread for more details: http://www.simhq.com/simhq3/sims/boards/bbs/ultimatebb....topic;f=144;t=001313 (http://www.simhq.com/simhq3/sims/boards/bbs/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=144;t=001313)

I have already updated this game to version 4.02, and it doesn't work! I have stand alone PF, and when I'm running the game, system told me about fatal error. Before update PF was working...

My system specs:
Windows XP x64 Edition
Intel Pentium 4 640 3,2 GHz
Ati Radeon X700 256MB
1024 MB RAM DDR2

Did you install all of the patches you need (and in proper order)?
If you have Pacific Fighters and you want to install over FB+AEP (you need both), you can install over v2.0, 2.01 or 2.04. Then you will need (http://www.pacific-fighters.com/en/updates.php):
- pf_v303m.exe (http://patches.ubi.com/pacific_fighters/pf_v303m.exe) (100 Mb; goes over v3.0m)
- pf_v401m.exe (http://patches.ubi.com/pacific_fighters/pf_v401m.exe)
- pf_v402m.exe (http://patches.ubi.com/pacific_fighters/pf_v402m.exe)

If you have Pacific Fighters installed as a 'stand alone' sim, you will need:
- pf_v303.exe (http://patches.ubi.com/pacific_fighters/pf_v303.exe) (100 Mb; goes over v3.0)
- pf_v401.exe (http://patches.ubi.com/pacific_fighters/pf_v401.exe)
- pf_v402.exe (http://patches.ubi.com/pacific_fighters/pf_v402.exe)

The problem I had with the 4.02 patch seems to stem from the mislabeling on the download site(s).
From what I can tell the stand alone defaults to "Ubi Soft\...\Pacific Fighters" while the merged patch should default to "Ubisoft\...\Forgotten Battles". Note the different spelling of "Ubisoft"- space versus no space and the different directory. I took great care to ensure that I dl'd the merge patches, only to be tripped up by faulty file label.
Oh well, I learned the hard way (after about 7 uninstalls and re-installs)

hello try just installing these 3 patches after you install the 301m to 303m,
If you have Pacific Fighters and you want to install over FB+AEP (you need both), you can install over v2.0, 2.01 or 2.04. Then you will need:
- pf_v303m.exe (100 Mb; goes over v3.0m)
- pf_v401m.exe
- pf_v402m.exe
try it in this order with these exact patches(you can get them on this sight)
It worked for my problem and now everything seems fine!!
GOODLUCK
MIKE
