Not official but I would personally wait for this
http://www.fz.se/artiklar/article.php?id=1458

If you live in the U.S. in order to purchase one of the great 1C/RRG products from UBI you must go to this UBI store (http://shop.ubi.com/Prod_ExtDesc.asp?catalogid=396&id=97) NOT the one you will find if you google UBI.COM. You can also hit any of the links below. Note the little flgs at the bottom left. Those flags will let you hit the French and German sites. Unfortunately the currency is currently in Euros and pounds... however the transactions will still work and convert and the difference is not that great.

The IL2 FB Complete DVD which consists of: Forgotten Battles + The Aces Expansion Pack + Pacific Fighters - All the way to FB version 4.04m... can be found here:

New Egg.Com (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16832138156)
Online Combat Gaming (http://yhst-12000246778232.stores.yahoo.net/ilcoeddvd.html)
Go Gamer.Com (http://www.gogamer.com/IL-2-Complete-Edition-DVD-Front-Page_stcVVproductId4760175VVcatId444710VVviewprod. htm)

If you live in Europe you can get the Complete Edition from this site (http://www.play.com/Games/PC/CART/3-/866127/-/Product.html?cur=258).


If you have the seperate istallation of each sim -FB + AEP + PF- fully merged to FB 3.0 and NOT the all inclusive DVD version then you will have to patch it.
You can go to this link here (ftp://ftp.ubi.com/de/pacificfighters/) and aquire the MEGA patch which is all the patches below in one neat nifty little bundle.

pf_patch303m.exe (100MB)
pf_patch401m.exe (141MB)
pf_v402m.exe (31MB)
pf_patch403m.exe (155MB)
pf_patch404m.exe (21.8MB)

This will bring you up to version 4.04. Then if you want to be totally current (4.05) you will have to get the Pe-2 addon (http://shop.ubi.com/Search.asp?keyword=PE-2&Go.x=14&Go.y=3) which is under $20 and is a download direct from UBI.

If you are totally new to the sim and have nothing and want to do it all in one shot (and you have a high speed connection) then you can DL the entire series up to verison 4.05 from UBI here:
FB+AEP+PF+Pe2 (http://shop.ubi.com/Prod_ExtDesc.asp?catalogid=396&id=97)

Of course you can fly Pacific Fighters as a stand alone and that can still be found in may U.S. stores.. however you will be shortchanging yourself as this series is a dish best served up in all of it's fully merged glory. So if you have PF already and want more consider one of the above options and pass your copy of PF on to some unsuspecting wanna be fighter jock. He wont know what hit him. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

If you do not have the mega version that is all ready up to 4.04 than this patch is the way to go.

BC, I need some help.

Based on your link I ordered the Ultimate Set from the French site. Installed and ran the Boonty download. It aborted and crashed without downloading the full product and now I can't get it to recognize that I have actually purchased the product. I have a copy of my receipt and all inquiries have gone unanswered. Can you get me in touch with whoever I need to talk to to get this straightened out?

Also, is there a way I can replace the French version of Boonty? I know about switching the Language setting in Preferences but the problem is that it only lists French. If someone could email me the boontybox_en.xml file out of their BoontyBox\Languages folder I'd appreciate it. folder

Hi all

------------------------------------------------
"Key Features:

New Aircraft - 32 new flyable fighters and bombers, including the long-awaited Il-10 Sturmovik, the Mig-9 Jet fighter or the Arado Ar-234 Blitz bomber; plus four new AI aircraft"
------------------------------------------------
Is the IL-10 moving to "1946" or we getting "1946" and "Manchuria" together?

I would have preferred 4.06m and 4.07m.
But if this is the final update to IL2-Sturmovik FB/Aces/PF, then a DVD will be fine.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Greetings and Well Met. I am a returning Player from several years ago and from the AirWars(r) Era.
Question:
I have recently received the 4.04m DVD. However, when Launching, it only opens IL-2. Where/How do I get to the PF Section? I have yet to try PF and can't wait to do so.

Also- (Probably wrong Forum, but)
Where can one Locate a stable OnLine Arena(server) and review Squadrons, etc?

Appreciate any help,
~Kenny

Message to KennyzPlay :
- PF is the Pacific side of IL-2, so that all is included in the same game (planes, maps, missions, campaigns, etc.).
- Best 'arena' is Hyper Lobby : free download at http://hyperfighter.sk/ You 'll see that Americans mostly play version 4.04 and the others 4.05.
Get ready to great challenge... Bye.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I've just noticed that www.play.com (http://www.play.com) has got Il2 Sturmovik - 46 for preorder. It costs 17.99 pounds, compared to the Il-2 complete-fb-aep-pf, which costs 14.99. Is there any possibility that this 46 thingi is the complete uber wonderful il-2 fb-aep-pf-pe2-som-46 in one?
