Just recovering from a total XP reformat, and so I've lost all my old bookmarks. Since I have 1946, I've gave my original IL-2 to a co-worker ( a former CFS1 simmer ) who wants to try it out before buying 1946/FB. Trying to find the patches and need the correct installation sequnce. It's been ages since I've last done so.

A) Where to find them?

B) What sequence?

Thanks.

If you have the original version of IL-2 Sturmovik, then you need:

il2upgrade_1.1a.exe
il2upgrade_1.2.exe
il2upgrade_1.2ov.exe (optional)


I'm assuming you gave him FB/AEP/PF.
If not, disreguard.
Before starting the patching process...
Install IL2FB (2 cd's)
Launch sim.
Go to Quick Mission.
Hit fly.
Esc.
Exit
Reboot.

Install AEP
Launch sim.
Go to Quick Mission.
Hit fly.
Esc.
Exit
Reboot.

Install PF (merged)
Launch sim.
Go to Quick Mission.
Hit fly.
Esc.
Exit
Reboot.

Patching process goes here.
pf_v303m.exe (100 Mb; goes over v3.0m)
pf_v401m.exe
pf_v402m.exe
pf_403m.exe
pf_patch404m.exe (21.8MB)

Launch sim.
Go to Quick Mission.
Hit fly.
Esc.
Exit
Reboot.


Run setup, start tweaking.

This procedure was the cure for "many" problems, for many people...and simply overkill for others.

If it's worth doing...it's worth doing right.
