Can anyone tell me how I should apply patches. I am loading IL-2, FB, and Pacific Fighters on a new computer. How do I bring them all up to date....starting from scratch.

Patching Guide should explain it all, but ...

IL-2 Sturmovik is its own animal and not part of the 'merged' series. Install it if you want to but you'll get all the same planes/maps in Forgotten Battles. IL-2 Sturmovik's scripted offline campaign is pretty good, however, and wasn't included in Forgotten Battles. Your choice. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Forgotten Battles is basically "IL-2 Sturmovik Platinum Edition" -- all the original material plus new maps, planes, and objects. The campaigns that are included are dynamic instead of scripted.

The next installment is "Aces Expansion Pack" which can be applied right over FB v1.0. If you do not have AEP, install the FB patches and stop there; this is all the further you can go. AEP is required as the bridge to 'merge' Pacific Fighters to FB.

If you have AEP, install it and then install Pacific Fighters. Your PF install menu should have an option for FB+AEP+PF.

If you do not have AEP, you'll have to settle for the 'standalone' version of Pacific Fighters. Apply the appropriate patches (five total) to get your game up to version 4.04.
