Hi Guys,

I've been away from IL2 for about 6 months now - been busy with my exams (almost bachelor now & going for a master) & I've done some modding for other games. I thought I was done with simming for this life but then I found my stick under the table & got hooked again. The thing is: My rig is getting older & I don't have the money for an upgrade right now. If FB+AEP runs ok will PF run ok too? I can run most maps with an average of 30 frames & I have no problem flying campaigns with 20-25 planes in the air.
What do you think?

S! and welcome back.

With the information you provide, I would say the merged install (FB+AEP+PF) should run ok in most cases. More info would help though.

Yes. Please install soon as I need your eyes and talent for survival.

If you renounce to the most most most exigent settings -that are however unavailable unless you have a Nvidia 6800- your performance could even improve respect to FB/AEP.

I would think that it's definitely worth it to get PF, but you might have to lower the visual detail and stuff, because now 3 ghtz and 1 gig of ram is recommended or something like that

Just use excellent settings and have a blast.

Thank you for your kind words - would be fun to get online again. I think I'm gonna stop by EB today maybe. Btw - could you possibly take a look at: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=49310655&m=5091046752

Any help would be much appreciated.
