Theres like 4 different versions of this game, Im just wondering if all of them are required for each one. I have IL2 Sturmovik now, what do I need to get to play with everyonelse online with Pacific Fighters? Do I have to buy FB and FBAEP too? Thanks.

Welcome!
Get the latest Forgotten Battles/Pacific fighters all-in-one DVD, should have all you need patched up to version 4.04. Then you could get the Pe2 add-on ( pay-for download only) to get you up to version 4.05. Find a post by Bearcat99 and click on the links under his sig - lots of very useful information for newcomers (and some old hands) there.

Hang on, I'll save you looking - here you go...

And one last pearl of wisdom, get a joystick if you haven't got one already - makes life much easier. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

IL2 is a totally seperate product and is not compatible at all with the others. The best way to look at this is one $35 multi front sim. The DVD is the base... and the $18 paid add on is Pe-2 which can be had from this site and will update the sim to version 4.05. So basically for all real and practicakl intents and purposes there are only two versions.

Welcome aboard....

Thanks both of you, are there any combo's like this that are CD instead of DVD?

no combo of just CD's, just the separate disks are in that format. Finding Forgotten Battles and Pacific Fighters is not that much of a problem, but the Forgotten Battles expansion pack 'Ace Expansion Pack' (as it is called) that you need to create the merged install with Pacific Fighters to patch up to play online (and get additional free planes BTW) is rarer than hen's teeth and a civil politics discussion on these boards. Basically the DVD is the way to go....

good luck!

The "Gold Pack" can be found if you look around.It is just Forgotten Battles and AEP together on cd.You would still need the Pacific Fighters cd and the patches.

The Ubi Store has the download of all three with the 4.05M Pe-2 addon in the mix. This will bring up to where everyone is in one swoop. Just be sure to burn the game to cd right away to keep.
