'IL2 Sturmovik: 1946
Pre-order
Due for release on 17/11/2006

our price: 17.99 Delivered
RRP: 29.99 You save: 12.00 (40%)'



Hmmm RRP:29.99 that seems a bit steep considering it's supposed to be same price as 2 updates online.

If updates are 15 each online that seems very expensive for a few planes and maps. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It's not two addons. In fact, it's a bundle of FB, AEP, PF, and all three online addons, with a bonus DVD featuring the making of BoB, a plane encyclopedia, and other things.

Which means I'm very glad not to have gotten Pe-2 yet. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

They already stated that if you own everything up to PE2 then the last two addons will cost on a download the same as buying the dvd.

so choices are 30 for 2 addons downloaded (based on plays prices)

or

dvd inc everything.

dvd was touted as only being the price of the downloads as most people have already put there hands in there pockets many times (I myself own all cds and the complete (sic) edition ) which kinda led me to belive it would not be the price of a brand new full game however looks like it will be sold as such.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hey, don't take the original post the wrong way, it's possible it could be cheaper from other distributers.
It's just that I've used Play.com for a lot of my software over the years, and they always come-up with the goods.
I'm also impatient, and it was the first advert i've seen.

the european version should work on US computers but depending on where you buy it from it might be localized... meaning you might get French menus etc if you buy from France... so your best bet would be to order from a UK site to ensure you'll get an english language version.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

At the time of the previous release (EU only Complete Edition), there were a few questions raised about compatability, such as Region numbering and maybe PAL/NTSC. But all these problems seemed to be imaginary, as no one seemed to have problems.
Jason was kind enough to test, then offer for sale. And I imagine he'll do the same for us this time.

" NUTS "
what a poor waste of effort and money that will make this game even more difficult for new players to not only find all these patches but get them installed without a lot of effort.
I find it inconcievable that a company would market their product in such a hap hazard manner that will only garner a few dollars,
these patches need to be consolidated in a clear and concise format that is user friendly

I thought the whole point is that "STURMOVIK: 1946 also includes all of previous Il-2 series content"...viz. http://airwarfare.com/ front page.

I don't disagree that Ubi's distribution policy is weird, but the release of everything up to 4.06 is what most of us have been pleading for since the Boonty fiasco.
I for one am happy to applaud the faceless exec who finally said 'OH alright, we'll release it as a DVD then'. It seems like a positive step to me - not something to whinge about.

I agree...but can't help thinking that if they'd stuck with the download only release...that we would have had SoM for quite some time and would just be getting '46 instead of waiting another month...

So I take it that a complete up to and (all updates and addons) including Pe2 and S'soM 1946 DVD will be available in November ??? "The Ultimate Edition" DVD?

Can I uptrade my "Complete Edition" DVD?

HardlyNormal seemed to have pipped the gun by their instore barcoding of the complete edition as the ultimate edition

Not indicated...are there any 'fixes' included?

Let's get this right.... i recently bought il2 complete edition on dvd, replacing my pacific fighters cd. It's a bit annoying that most of the decent servers are 4.05 or above and i'm on 4.04 but i didn't want to fork out for the add-ons. Are we saying that if i buy il-2 sturmovik:1946 i can get rid of my il2 complete edition dvd because the new dvd includes absolutely everything, pay-for addons etc etc?

yep you can stick your complete edition up on Ebay it will no longer be complete http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif although it will not fetch much as my local shop was selling it for 5 a month ago (damn fools don't know a good thing)

New DVD will contain everything you need all the old stuff the new stuff and the stuffy stuff in between.

hope this helps.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Last time I checked 15.99+15.99 was 29.98... no? So at 17.99 for the two it seems like a bargain to me yes? Unless of course this is one of those "No no no what we meant was......." scenarios that some companies are famous for.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Yes.. it will include the S0M and the 46 add ons PLUS FB+AEP+PF+Pe2..... whicxh will bring you up to FB 4.07m. In your case and similar ones, I would try to find a worthy soul.... meaning someone who would appreciate it and maybe be turned onto a great new hobby.. and give it to them. I have given away 2 copies of FB and two FB GOLDs.... and so far out of the four... 3 are still flying to this day, so I consider it money well spent.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hi!
I'm getting some mixed messages about what is in this DVD for 1946?
Dose it have FB, AeP, PF, PE-2, 1946 and that other IL-2 over "something starting with M" in it? Or are there more add-ons not in it?
Also I'm in Australia and it said that it was coming here in November, dose that mean the DVD is coming out here then?
