I don't know where you got your info from, but there are plenty to be had. I bought mine from these guys a year ago. They ship fast too.

I saw three in the local wal-mart yesterday. I dont know how much it'd cost, but if you absolutely need it we could set something up in way of me shipping it to you, didn't look at the price cuz I already have it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Thanks alot guys. Ive waited till Ive finally upgraded this here pc to handle the dvd/graphics. My usual place I get games off says they cant get it anymore 'gameplanet.co.nz', same place Steiner http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif... so was a bit put out as to what to do. Anyways, Ill give your suggestions a try and hopefully one more can join the ranks.

Thanks again!

Seems a bit expensive still. I found a copy in EB Games yesterday at $49 which was the original price but know some Walmart stores have it on sale for $20. I want to pick up an extra copy for any new squad m8s joining the Dogz.

You might want to have a look on NZ Ebay.

I dont really care how much Ill pay , within reason, I just want to get it. The community here is so strong and everyone seems pretty well mannered. Its a nice change frm the other gaming sites full of ******s flaming etc.

Anyway Ive re asked them at GP.co.nz again to see if they'll ship it in for me. I think they will.

Sorry guys Im a 'Pacific Fighters' guy so once Im saddled up for '46 I be asking some noob questions re updates and patches etc. Forgive. Ill hunt them out first though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That link is showing the "Complete Edition", that doesn't include IL-2 1946.

Hi Fury,

I'm in NZ and there are a few retail stores that should still have it. Let me know if you are still wanting it and I will see if I can find them for you.

Furyan, just set up with PayPal or the like and you can places almost anywhere to ship to you.
They know they get paid and you have delivery protection.
I've bought direct from Dontronics in Australia using PayPal before, there is no barrier to
products being shipped and the intermediary PayPal takes care of the banking. If local store
won't stock it then shop elsewhere, you have the same internet that I do and my copy of 1946
was sent to me from England. I cam close to buying original IL2 from there, US release was
delayed so I had mine "two weeks" after the Euros who had theirs after Russian release.

OTOH you could buy it over the net from UBI and run that until SOW:BoB comes out.

Have to agree with M_Gunz, PayPal opens up avenues to buy stuff from all over the globe. I use all the time. Especially now the AUS$ is creeping closer to 1:1 to US$ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

If you are still having issues getting a copy, pop over to the NZ home of Il-2.

http://KiwiSim.net.nz

We have members from AU/NZ and have sourced several copies for new players from regulars who manged to find a few on the shelves in odd places across AU/NZ.

We have a 24/7 Dedicated scripted server and also run bi-weekly COOP "Team Flying Kiwis" nights with up to 16 players.
Check my sig for details
