Currently facing the situation where I get mission loading errors followed by PF crashes.

Here's what I need: I own FB and PF but not the Aces pack. I want a "merged" installation and have the right patches applied in the right order. Sorry, I get confused with all these patches. I would de-install everything and start from scratch. Otherwise, I'll just do a plain stand-alone PF install.

Anyone can help ?

THX <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I "believe" you have to have AEP also.

Correct. You need FB and AEP to put PF on top.

If you can't find AEP, you may have to get FB Gold, which is a box packed with 2 FB CDs and the AEP CD.

You "must" have fb - aep - pf to get a merged install. After you have the three loaded in that order you only need the 303m patch then the 304m patch and thats it! I have seen aep at gamestop stores for 9.99 , sometimes 19.99 and the gold pack is usually 29.99. You wont be dissappointed , the whole game is worth the price of admission!!

OK, you convinced me folks.

Now, once I get ACES, what sequence do I use for the installs ? Like:

1. Install FB (without FB-specific patches)
2. Install ACES (without ACES-specific patches)
3. Install PF (with the 303m patch then the 304m patch)

... and all of that in the same original FB folder ?

Thanks again !

Thats the correct sequence.
