Just bought the 1946 and it looks really good. I played IL2 only till the FB, not the Ace and PF so I don´t really know which missions belong to which part of the game. Any tips? And just another question, some missions are given as static, some as dynamic, which is the difference?? Thanks in advance,
Tasos.

The static missions have pre-set mission paths.

Regardless of how you perform, the next mission and the ones after will all follow a fixed path with fixed friendly and enemy numbers/locations/frontlines.

Dynamic campaigns (especially with the DCG add-on) allow YOUR performance in each mission to affect the frontlines/enemy numbers/friendly forces in each succeeding mission. More fun!

Only good thing about the static campaigns IMHO is the 'storyline style' briefings. Dynamic mission briefings are so UNdynamic!

Thanks a lot ake109, very informative and helpful. Just another newbie question: since as it seems with the installation of 1946, the FB+Ace+PF have also been installed, can I unistall my old IL2+FB game? I have to say here that they are installed in a different folder. And of course, may someone can tell me which campaigns belong where......

.....thanks once again, Tasos.

If you want to uninstall FB/PF and wish to copy your campaigns from the FB/PF install to 1946, you will need to copy and paste the folders
/Users
and
/Missions\Campaign
to the 1946 Il-2 Sturmovik 1946 folder.

If you've changed any settings, or started similar campaigns, this will overwrite them, so have a care.

i have never really used any of the ingame campaigns and never completed any downloaded ones.

anyway i made it to mission 11 or something as a Fighter Japanese figher on Iwo Jima flying Ki-84a

it was fun in the start but when the same attack came 3 times i lost interest

8 corsairs escortet by Hellcats attacked
there were some Avengers aswell.

that attack repeted 3 or 4 times...not fun
