I'm new to this forum and I have a question about installing IL2+FB. I have already installed PF with all the patches and the fixed dll files. When I get IL2 and get ready to install it, will I have uninstall PF and then reinstall it? I have the stand-alone PF. I've been playing SH III for a while and decided to try a Flight Sim and I love this game so I'm ready to get IL2.

You have both options, stand alone and merged.

Whoa, hold on there! What do you mean by "IL2+FB", Zatochi? Il2*Sturmovik and Il2*Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles are not compatible with each other. Il2*Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles is not an add-on for Il2*Sturmovik

So when I get ready to install IL2, I will have the option to merge the install with PF that is already installed?

Ok so what you are telling me is that I can get IL2 and merge it with PF or I can get IL2+FB which is stand alone only?

No, not at all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Il2*Sturmovik = Original sim in the Il2 Series (called Il2)

Il2*Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles = improved and updated sim, based on the Original Il2*Sturmovik, but not compatible with it (called Il2:FB, or more usually, FB)

Ace's Expansion Pack= expansion for Il2:FB. Not compatible with original Il2. (called AEP)

Pacific Fighters= addon for FB with AEP AND standalone sim. Both options are available. Pacific Fighters is not compatible with the original Il2. (Called PF)

In order to use PF as an add-on, you must have Il*2Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles with AEP installed.

Il2 is stand-alone
FB is stand-alone
PF is stand-alone

AEP is installed into FB
PF can be merged with FB+AEP, or be it's own stand-alone sim, or even be installed as both add-on and stand-alone

But none of this works with the original Il*2:Sturmovik. You need Il*2Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles

I know that FB's name implies an add-on, but it is not an add-on

The original Il2 can not be merged with FB, and FB cannot be added to the orignal Il2

Thanks Chuck,
That pretty much sums it up.
