View Full Version : It`s actually quite hard to find the 4.08 patch.... New User concern.

Ok had to reinstall IL2 `46. And needed to repatch it. I`ve got the Patch on CD already, but thought why not just D\L from UBI? maybe I`ll see something new! Or just plain curious. Or too lazy to find my Patch CD. Take your pick.

Anyway, I spent 10 minutes looking around and it`s quite amazingly hard to find the 4.08 Patch for 1946. I can find the Pacific Fighters 4.04 Patch easy (it`s even on Ubirazze`s sticky above)... But finding 4.08...

Well, no.

Personally, it`s not a big problem for me, but I could see this causing new users to IL2 `46 some real headaches. Surely, it should be much easier to gain access to this latest Patch?

Yeah...

Filefront hosts it, but no a lot of people I know in the IL-2 community know about that site.

There is a sticky specifically about where to find the 4.08 patch at the very top of the Pacific Fighters forum page.

I get asked for it all the time in HL.The answer is on the front page of this very forum i believe,so its really not that hard to find.

It's not as obvious as it should be, maybe; but google "pacific fighters 4.08 patch" finds it

Then again a lot of people are just lazy,and want a direct link handed to them on a plate when they ask for it.

I knew that was coming,and meant to put a 'this is not pointing a finger at anyone' disclaimer on the post,but forgot.
After your response I don't care anymore.Why get personal?
The fact is the patch IS easy to find,with very little effort.

Good, then I can retract my `sorry` so you can now whine further.
