View Full Version : Anyone have an accurate revision history for the IL2 series?

A while back I started saving tracks of favorite coop missions. I ran across a disk full of some particularly old ones and thought I'd like to see them again. So, what I thought I would do is save them to avi (for posterity). No doubt my grandkids will want to know what I did during the war. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

These tracks span a number of patches and updates. Obviously, they need to be viewed with the version of the game that was current during the recording of the track. So, I thought I'd reload the game from scratch and start patching. Then, record the tracks via fraps as I got to a version that was needed. I think I have most of the patches and updates on disk, but I'm not sure when they were released.

In order to figure out which versions I need to play my tracks, I started puting the following list (revision history) together from the patch/ update disks I had. I won't vouch for the accuracy... this was just thrown together.

If you know of a more authoratative list somewhere let me know. I couldn't find one. If you see something I've left out or have wrong, let me know.

Thanks.

A good place to start would be the official UBI patchserver.

IL2 patches:
http://patches.ubi.com/il2_sturmovik/

FB and AEP patches:
http://patches.ubi.com/il2_forgotten_battles/

PF patches:
http://patches.ubi.com/pacific_fighters/

They got pretty much all the old patches. You seem to have almost all of the listed as well.

Someone should start an IL2 history thread. I am sure Oleg has the history though...

On my hard drive I found some additional stuff:

IL2

1.02b (might just be the right name for your 1.02)

1.04
1.04b (no 2 after the b on this one)
1.10 (in addition to the 1.1b you have)

FB:

1.11
1.2beta
rc01
rc02 (these were a wierd but famous beta that was out for a bit)

Yes, that's a great help Amnio. Thanks.

I was hoping for the release dates too, though. I guess I can check the "last modified" date in the file list of each patch, but that could take a while.

Jumoschwanz,

I remember those famous betas. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yes, I think you're right about the 1.02b.

I'd love to see a history thread. It would be fun to know when what planes appeared, changes were made. What patch did the K4 lose its rudder? etc. lol
