hi all,

at last my web and PC troubles are solved, and i really would like to try the game on line.

But, i don´t know/understand the The functioning of the game. Which server do we chose, were do one play, because I'm a noob, and I don't know the reaction of the others, if I make some mistake, shoot the wrong guy and stuff...http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Other thing is, I still have the 4.04 game, cause the 46 I have brake down. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif Can I go on line? I will have the 1946 soon, but for now, I have this.


Thanks all

You can get online with ANY version, but you simply won't find many players to interact with in that version (the versions are NOT compatible). You'll want to wait until you have the '46 version (4.07m) in hand and get it patched to 4.08m.

Once you do that, either get Hyperlobby, XFire, or AllSeeingEye. you can join through those server-finders or you can get the IP address from them and join via direct IP. There are any number of servers every night that have dozens of players in each one. Find one that has the settings you like (don't be intimidated about seemingly "difficult" settings like "no externals", and "no icons").

and whatever you do...GET TEAMSPEAK! Even if you just listen and you have bad english etc,.. you'll find it helpful.

hi, thunderbolt56

thanks for your tips. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

i don´t wont to be Annoying , but I do have same Q. to ask. Once I get a hold of the 1946 4.07 version of the game, how do I execute the upgrade to the 4.08 version?
Other thing is, what do mean about "TEAMSPEAK!" ? do I need phones and speaker (?) , or "TEAMSPEAK! " is a tool that one can dl ?

I'm sorry for so many Q., but I really don't understand the functioning and the stuff that we most do to go online.

Simply download the 4.08 patch and run it, it will upgrade your game.

The download hyperlobby from www.hyperfighter.sk (http://www.hyperfighter.sk) and install that, then run it.

Create a login and password and you are in, you will see a long list of servers on the left hand side once you have chosen the forgotten battles room, pick one of the top ones and fly fly fly.

It really is very easy, and you should have no problems.

Teamspeak is a chat program so players can work together via talking.

You will need a mic for sure. Headphones are a must aswell but if you only have desktop speakers you can still use it but you will need to bind a key for "press to talk" that way no one gets any reverb from your speakers.

good luck man

We might be on the same team!

There is Red and Blue, each team tries to shoot the other down,

For a start, try a server with icons such as UK dedicated 2, the friendlies have big icons around them, so you cannot make a mistake http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just shoot the ones with no icons on this server. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Just tell the people on the server you are new, and ask questions, they will help you. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ok. did ever hapen to u, shoot a wrong guy?

And, u say, "ask", don´t one waist to much time and focus while talking to others?

(sorry about the inglish in this one)

Yes I have shot the wrong guy, many times, especially on servers with no icons (no red/blue markings) But it wont happen to you if you start on servers with some icons, its almost impossible. Its so easy to see who is on your side when you have icons on. Seriously, you will forget all about these worries after 1 hour online http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

If you are that worried about it, pick the Ukdedicated1 server, that server has icons on for both sides, but its 4.08m, so you will need 1946.

What happened to your 1946 disc by the way? PM me maybe I can help.

When I say 'ask', I mean there is a chat box at the top of the screen, you can chat to other players, just ask questions if you are not sure about something.

One note :- When you get into the game, open the chat box (I think with the key 'T') and when its open, use your mouse to drag the corner of the window bigger (like you would in windows), so that its about 6 lines. Normally its just one line and you miss a lot of messages if you dont change it to more.

Just get online as soon as you can, dont worry about preparing for it, you will be fine!
