What is the difference petween PF patch 301M exe and PF patch 301M (new) exe. I don't understand why one patch says new! I want to use the patch with IL2-FB-AEP-PF. Which patch do I need. I know I need the "M" patch but do I need the new or not.
Sorry for being so stupid but that's what happens when you get very old.

Download both 301M and 301M new. Install 301M first, 301M new AFTER that. You need both.

Install the 301M patch. Then if you want to test the NEW graphics engine(or what ever its called) then install 301m New.

The 'new' patch is ONLY a test to improve the frames per seconds (fps).

You don't need it, but if you want to just try it out, then download it and install it. Once installed it will be called pf_new.exe, and the original (and patched) program will be called pf.exe. You can run either one. Try the new one and if you have no problems, just stick with it. But if you do have some problems, you can try the 'original' pf.exe.

That's all.

I don't know what is happening on my machine but the "new" exe doesn't do anything. The game wont start with that exe file.

You are probably using the NoCD rts file. You have to go back to the origianal rts file, then try it.
