Hi people

after reading the reviews i purchased il2 cd ver 1.03a and loaded up ok. The problem is the training missions ALL end up diving into the ground even when its showing you how to handle the aircraft! the cd manual gives no instructions and is really not much use at all. Even taking over control saving the plane from certain distruction and then returning control on auto pilot does not go back to any form of instruction as to what you are learning!

Is this in need of a patch? if so why is version 1.03a not listed?

Any ideas would be appreciated because i feel like chucking this game in the bin due to frustration and not being given any idea of whats required by that stupid so called manual!

many thanks

Graham

Welcome to il2/FB. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The training missions will no longer work. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif When the box install was upgraded to v1.03a, the FMs were changed and that is why the aircraft crash. See if the other upgrades are contained on your game disc. If not, then:


For IL-2 Sturmovik ONLY!

Install over the box version in the following order:

1.) il2upgrade_1.1a.exe (75 MB)

2.) il2upgrade_1.2.exe (28.4 MB)

If - and ONLY if - you want to modify voice files

3.) il2upgrade_1.2ov.exe - (38.1Mb)
