Hey, please don't call me a noob, but how do you play online? I really want to know what you have to do to play online. I know you go to Multiplayer section and you click Join Server, but what does Type Server Adress mean? And if you tell me, how do I find a place to find lists of servers? Thanks. I got here just like, 5 minutes ago, Lol.

Which version of the game do you have? Most play 1946 v4.08m. Download Hyperlobby and use that to connect to online servers.

Howdy, it's all explained in the Nuggets Guide to taking off, which is located at: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/9121094645

In short, you'll need to get Hyperlobby, IL-2 1946 and the 4.08 patch

The type server address option is mainly used when you are setting up a LAN game with several mates in the same room as you.

Technically you could connect to an online game that way but most online connections are done through Hyperlobby as pointed out in the posts above.

If you are just ready to get started online, you may find the following guide helpful:

I wrote it to help out guys who are just getting started with Hyperlobby which is how everyone plays online these days.

Cheers,

Can I ask what skills are needed. Takeoffs? etc.

Welcome onboard!

It depends, Different game rooms have different setting, from easy to full real.
But you should handle takeoffs and landings before you get online. to get any points for downing an other aircraft, you must land to collect the points. preferably intact http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
