Well, after moving to Sydney Australia about 7 weeks ago, I am finally about to play FB again!

My parents have flown out my PC as a birthday present and I went out and bought Pacific Fighers on Friday in anticipation.

If the old rig survived the trip then I should be playing again by tomorrow afternoon, I can't wait!

My question is what patches do I need to install PF over my FB + AEP ? Have there been any patches since the 2.04 release? Or can you install PF over any version of FB+AEP?

I've had my whole rig flown out except for my rudder pedals so I'm going to have to relearn the old twist stick for the rudder.

As for Australia I'm loving it! I've moved into my new flat in the Northern Beaches 2 weeks ago and the beach is just 2 mintues away and I can see it from my living room window. Now I can surf everyday whenever I feel like it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Also bought a brand new Aloha 6'4" x 19 1/4" x 2 7/16" very nice!

As for the scare stories from some of the guys on the forums, no I haven't been bitten by any spiders or snakes yet but I have been stung by Portugese Man O' War (Bluebottles) 3 times in one week http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Ouch!

As for some of the whines about PF all I can say is I gladly forked over the dollars for this game just because apparently the muzzle flash has been fixed.

You can install PF straight over FB/AEP

Back up your entire FB folder first. Install straight over the original folder. Use the copied folder for any AEP/FB flying you may wish to do.

Some have had problems doing the combined install over an existing installation, you may need to un-install/re-install FB/AEP. This wont affect the copied folder.

How'd you go getting a decent internet connection? Shouldn't have been any problem in Sydney's northern suburbs I'd guess http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

Now you pay thousands of dollars each year to come over watch your team get beaten at cricket, get sunburnt and then back off to merry ol blighty! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Watch out for the drop bears though Xnomad, they're pretty rare arounf the northern beaches, but well that's what they want you to think, just don't look up if you hear any rustling in a gum tree.

Thanks guys. What a day! Took quite some time getting the PC cleared at customs and the tower had taken a knock and the floppy drive and hard disk supporting brackets had fallen off. Thank God once I plugged it all in it's still working, and I'm blown away again at the graphics and Track IR.

Tully, at the moment I'm on dial up again, I think I'll have to work something out with my new flatmate but I'm happy with single player for the time being.

OK I'm off to install PF now.
