alright, i recently found this game from a movie i viewed.... and i am trying to find some information before i buy it....

basicly what are the expansions?

can you get the expansions and not the origenal? or do you need the expansion and the origenal to play?

about how much do the expansions and games cost?

and i keep hearing things about HL? are you guys talking about half-life? is this thing linked to half life in getting on servers or something?

the most important questions are how much is this game gona cost, and is it a pain to get the updates etc

There's IL2: Forgotten Battles. This is a stand alone upgrade of IL2
As expansion for that version there's the Aces Expansion Pack, but its possible to get both of those two in one gold pack, the price I dont know, but it should be the same you pay for one new game.
When you have these you can download the updates up till 2.04 and you're ready to roll.
And no, updates are easy to get, just go to www.il2sturmovik.com (http://www.il2sturmovik.com) and find the download section. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

HL is Hyperlobby, a nice proggy that lets you join hosted games and is quite crowded usually.

Hmm, that should be about it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Enjoy!

Welcome to the community http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Patches for IL2:FB AEP are:

2.01 and 2.04, 2.02 and 2.03 don't exist but you need to install both 2.01 and 2.04 as IL2:FB patches are not cumulative http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

If in uk gameplay have il2 forgotten battles and aces expansion pack for 10 each. there are other non official expansions from justflight at around 15. If you want to be really cheap the origonal Il2 can be found for 7 but the flight models and flyables options are greatly reduced in this.
Go and buy it and say goodbye to social life, wife , kids and sleep - it is that good

Mate, don't go calling the pound sterling 'Euro ****' Thats what the Euro is for. Dollar is US ****, Pound is UK ****, and the Euro is the extra ****ty **** from Europe http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif and i get that you're joking.

You will also need a flight stick as flying with the mouse and keyboard alone is useless. So you might as well add that into the cost. I have spent just over $300 on my HOTAS ( TraclIR 3pro, Saitek X45 and CH Pro pedals). Unless you already have a flight stick.

First, welcome to IL2!

Don't freak out at this post. I know I did when I saw it at first. "What?" I thought, "I'm going to need to spend another $300 to play a $30 game?"

It's true you will need a joystick. There are many good ones for under $50. The more you play FB the more you too will want to spend that $300 as a good HOTAS setup/pedals/Track IR (or a varient on 'looking') will really help with immersion.

But it is addictive! And the more you get into it the more you'll want to upgrade your computer. If you have a significant other I hope they are understanding. (Fortunately mine is)

If you have any questions just ask. Be sure to check the Technical support Forum if you need help with the machine end of the game.
You've entered the finest, most helpful flight sim community around IMHO.
