Couple of Questions here - quit playing IL-2 and the Aces Xpansion, as my computer became progressively more unstable...random reboots, had to replace video card as well as CD-ROM, had a memory stick go bad - really, it's on it's last legs...

Ordered a bunch of components from NewEgg and will be building a new machine in the next 5-10 days -

Core 2 Duo E6600
2 GB DDR2 800 SDRAM
Samsung 225BW 22" 5 ms WideScreen LCD
Sapphire Radeon X199XT PCI-E 256MB Video

With these stats, will IL-2 and Pacific Fighters run any better?

Does IL-2 support Dual-Core Procs?

When is the next flight sim from these guys due out? Should be soon?

Does IL-2 Support WideScreen LCD's?

Will a 5 ms response time be low enuf to prevent blur and ghosting while playing?

Getting ready for re-installing an old friend... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif)

The next one is Storm of War:Battle of Britain.. It will start out with the BoB... but eventually branch out... like IL2 did.. but in the other direction. At last look I think it was June of 07 as for release date.. but it could be later. However you can still have ablast with the current sim.

IL2 FB Complete: FB+AEP+PF-Version 3.0...
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)
After that you will need to go to this site (http://www.3dgamers.com/games/pacificfighters/downloads/) and aquire the following patches:

Install patch pf_patch303m.exe (100MB)
Install patch pf_patch401m.exe (141MB)
Install patch pf_v402m.exe (31MB)
Install patch pf_patch403m.exe (155MB)
Install patch 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=21&Go.y=0) which is under $20 and is a download.

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 here:
FB+AEP+PF+Pe2 (http://shop.ubi.com/Prod_ExtDesc.asp?catalogid=396&id=97)

Your specs sound great, dual core runs fine, 5ms response is great.. See above for the next sim..this thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/26310365/m/3621034462?r=3621034462#3621034462) for widescreen info.

Actually if you have FB & ACes PF & PE2 is all you need. I think PF is going for $19 at Comp USA if you are in the states.... and it is still around. Once you get PF then patch it upto 4.04m and then install the Pe-2 add on... Plus two new addons are immenent.. Sturmoviks over Manchuria (http://rrgstudios.com/EN_02_06_Manchuria.shtml) and The 46 (http://rrgstudios.com/EN_02_07_1946.shtml) add on and there is a potential WWI thing coming out as well that was originally based on the IL1 Enginebut has morphed into something else called Knights of the Sky (http://www.gennadich.com/allprojects/).. no release date for that yet though.
