Hi all,

Please help me, Ihave the basic version of Forgotten Battles (Version 1.2 i think) how can i update it? will it let me go straight to 4.03 or 4.04, or do i have to individually install all the updates in order of release?

Thank you

James

In a nutshell, there isn't much updating that you can do. I think you can take FB up to v1.22 before you have to buy more expansions.

If you take the long hard route to v4.04m, you'll need to buy Aces Expansion Pack for FB and then Pacific Fighters. After five more free patches, you still won't have the most current version of the game ...

UbiSoft France has a 1946 'add-ons only' download you can pay for. It brings v4.04m up to at least 4.07m and maybe has been updated for the free upgrade 4.08m. Caveat Emptor, the download has caused some people frustration trying to install, and there is little to no customer support available.

So ... all of the avove is to convince you that you don't want to upgrade Forgotten Battles. That would be the expensive and frustrating way to do this, as AEP is out of print and the 4.05m-4.07m pack is only available as an e-commerce download from France. What you want to do is buy the complete DVD version that gives you everything from the whole series in one shot!

The Il-2 Sturmovik 1946 DVD is available at most Wal-Marts in the US for about $30.
