I uninstalled the PF becasue i bouth IL FB Gold

So i installed ILFB gold and then inststalled PF then installed 3.01 and 3.01 new.

All exe are dead. it shows the carrier bmp then that goes away and i am at the desktop with nothing running.

PF worked just a few min ago with its own install...help, please.

First, when you installed IL2FB Gold and PF did you choose the merged install option ? Also, the patch 3.01 has 2 versions PF stand alone and a merged version with FB Gold. Make sure you are installing the merged version.

I'm writing this assuming you want to end up with the merged version, right ?

thanks, paniced to quickly.

I redid the whole thing. and with each install i started the game...after the ilfb..then after aces...then after pf.

all good now. my big question is with 3.01 is it better to use the old patch method or the new method for peformance?

thanks for the help...all around!

For the merged install you need 3.01m not 3.01.

Also the 3.01m new exe will not work unless you use the original rts.dll(on disk#2) and disk #2 in the cd reader.
