Hey all!! I just bought a Logitech 3D PRO joystick (lame compaired to what u guys have) and started playing IL2 Sturmovik a few days ago. I already addicted!! Insead of asking the same questions u have answered before... I'm wondering if there is a site or page I can go to in search of knowledge. Looking for the usual stuff, Downloads (i think i'm up to date now but want to make sure), Updating to Forgotten Battles, Updates always say "not compatible w/previous versions when playing via network, How do I get onto multiplayer.
I've found some of the info on skins and flying tips that I was looking for in the forums, but it took forever to narrow down my search. Just goes to show how popular this game is with so many posts!!!
Thanks for any help u can provide, after alot more practice maybe I'll see u in multiplay.

You must have Forgotten Battles, Aces Expansion Pack, and Pacific Fighters all in a merged installation in order to play on the majority of online servers.

For updates then you will have to find downloads for your version

1) Il2

2) Forgotten battles + aces+pacific fighters

3) Pacific fighters stand alone

most people play version 2 online

Updates for IL2 from

http://www.il2sturmovik.com/games_elts/updates.php

Updates for others from

http://www.pacific-fighters.com/en/updates.php

please make sure you download correct version for either 2) or 3) above and follow instructions

Bring that Logi thing back - get <ANY> Saitek stick instead...

and Yes - www.airwarfare.com (http://www.airwarfare.com)

Also - just try to fly UBI online (Window's start / programs etc... Play Online) for starters - if you feel confident enough switch to ASE (All Seeing Eye) and if that goes OK try BabelLobby (Hyper) lol

I'm not kidding here http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And if ever you come across Galen Thurben or something - he's certified kokoo and should be banned from the internet - ah well that can't be done sadly...

Willkommen an Bord, TvNewsShooter! I enjoyed reading your post. It reminded me of when I "discovered" this sim. That passion! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Nothing when they're brand new. If you can still say the same in 4-6 months you're lucky.
