So I've been playing the game, getting better at it, learning a lot, etc. I like it, and I'm beginning to think of more of a challange against human opponents.

I'd like to start playing online, but not sure where to start.

Where do I sign up and learn more about online play?

Thanks.

Install it and get online at Hyperlobby, hundreds there daily.

I think you have to rename the Il2 .exe to Il2fb.exe

You did choose IL2 forgotten battles as the game didnt you?

If that doesnt work, try looking on the Hyperlobby forums, I am sure many others had the same trouble.

BTW You will LOVE online play if you try out the right servers http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

type this into it.... C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946/il2fb.exe ....if you installed it in the default directory

it doesn't work when you just put in the folder address

OK, let hyperlobby find the path.

1. Open Hyperlobby
2.Hold down the ctrl and the shift buttons and click CONNECT.
3. A search window opens, click search.

It should find your IL2 exe and when it does just click save and all should be well.

1946 is played from the FORGOTTEN BATTLES room in Hyperlobby.

Nothing works for me, not finding the path... I can see it but software doesn't like it.

If you know the exact location of the il2fb.exe then there shouldn't be a problem. As Aimail said, if you did the default install it should look something like this:

C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946/il2fb.exe

So the procedure should be

1. Open Hyperlobby
2. Make sure that Forgotten Battles (not IL-2 Sturmovik) is selected in the program list on the left.
3. Type in your chosen CALLSIGN and choose a PASSWORD.
2.Hold down the ctrl and the shift buttons and click CONNECT.
3. A search window opens, type the exact location of the il2fb.exe.
4. Click Save.
5. Back in the original HyperLobby box click CONNECT.

This should work. If not, try following the guide in The Nugget's Guide (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/9121094645).

I use the program Xfire. Just download xfire and it detects what games you have installed on your computer. select IL-2, and booms, lots of servers. Easy good times. :P See you in the skies! (usually i'll be looking back up at you in the skies as i tumble burning to the ground lol)
But I'm still having fun!

Thanks guys, I will try again tonight.

And I think I know now what can be part of my problem. When I installed 1946 it put it in the Program Files.... But then I was messing to get the game look good on my widescreen, and I was reading plent of advise. Unless I screwed something, onf of them saif to move the contant of the IL folder into its separate location:

so I moved it to c:\games

Thus if I didn't need to do it I might have screwed up for nothing... Now my exe is in:

C:\games\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\il2fb.exe

But I can put in this path into Hyper and it's not taking it.

I am wondering if I should re-install the game to it oroginal location? Or can I work around it?

I will also try Xfire tonight.

Thanks again guys!

It should work. .I have four different installs on my pc, in four different locations and thery all work.

Make sure when you first select the game from the hyperlobby list you select "forgotten battles" and not "paciffic fighters" or "il-2 Sturmovik".

Alright! I was careful now and it accepted my path!

But when I tried connecting to 3 games, all said thay have a different ver - 4.08. I see 4.07 when my 1946 starts...

Not sure what to do now...
