Patching Guide (http://www.airwarfare.com/guides/patching.htm)

Basically, for standalone PF (not 'merged' with other versions of the series) you need these patches after installing:

3.0 to 3.03 upgrade patch; then ...
3.04 upgrade patch.

If you aren't 'merging' then don't download patches with the little 'm' at the end of the name.

Get the Forgotten Battles Gold Pack with the Ace's Expansion and Pacific Fighters too while you are there! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

If your new to the scene and do not have Forgotten Battles or Ace expansion pack I highly suggest you purchase them if you want to play online with thousands of players. I would say roughly 98% of the online community run merged install of FB+AEP+PF. If you just have PF then what Skycat posted is all you need.

But if you have all three then I suggest a clean install. Forgotten Battles then Ace expansion then Pacific Fighters. You would then install patch 3.03m and finally 3.03 to 3.04. These are the only patches you need and you wont have to add the AEP patches.

Pacific Fighters Standalone:

Forgotten Battles + ACE expansion + Pacific Fighters merged install:
