So just arrived home with the Complete Edition DVD version of FB/PF.Ive already got the game fully installed on my PC patched up to 4.04.So apart from showing my financial support for Oleg and team (which I am delighted to do)and having a very handy ,very cheap (25 Euro in GAME,Ireland)copy of the game is there any actual advantage to reinstalling /any extra content /nicer water in the non PF maps etc etc?

If you have a fully merged install of IL2+Aces+PF patched to 4.04m, then you have everything on the disk. I bought a couple too to show support and to give one as a present. I like having what is really a comprehensive single game on disk. It's quite a bundle.

You get a nice flash of some biplane at startup before usual startup screen when booting from DVD other than that no advantage just a show of support and easier install if you need to reinstall.

wonder what that biplane is as it flashes past to fast? ;-)

Why did you buy it if you already have it?

I'll show my support by buying another Oleg product like BoB! This is wasted money IMO. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Say guys, I have made 8 cd's of my favorite "getting high" music of the '70's and '80's. Since I supply a huge amount of humor on these boards, if you send me $100 + shipping, I will send you copies of my cd's. In this way, you can support my "hobby" and at the same time you'll be helping a wonderful charity.

Nope. It is just good for keeping everything in one place. When you have to re-install, it is now idiot-proof to 4.04 .
