Il2Sturmovik is not Il2Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles

Il2Sturmovik is still a good sim, however, you cannot add Pacific Fighters (PF) onto Il2.

If you want to do a merged install, you need Il2Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles, commonly called "FB". FB is not an add-on to Il2 Sturmovik

FB is a stand-alone game that shares many things with Il2Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles, but they are not, repeat not compatible in the sense that they work together. Some elements of Il2 can be used in FB, but this is a more advanced thing than simply installing FB onto Il2. There is no option to install FB as an add-on to Il2, and you cannot install PF onto Il2 as an add-on, either

For the merged install, the initial game you must have is Il2Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles.

That is all

Wise words from the ancient. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Also have in mind that you also need the FB AEP expansion in order to add PF to it.

There is a gold pack with all.

Unfortunately, it's not so cheap as the original Il-2 Sturmovik budget version you can buy in the stores. But it's very worth the price.
