Hi,

to be clear, I'm not bashing on the fact that patches are coming out. I applaud the patches. But.

If my PC were to crash, and I have to reinstall everything on my PC, I have to, ofcourse, re-install Forgotten Battles. Here comes the scandal:

To be able to play Ace (v2.01) one has to:
1) Install FB
2) Install FB patch 1.22
3) Install ACE
4) Install ACE patch 2.01

See what I'm getting at? I applaud the fact that Pacific Fighters is going to be a seperate game alltogether, because in order to play it, I will most certainly not:

1) Install FB
2) Install FB patch 1.22
3) Install ACE
4) Install ACE patch 2.01
5) Install PF
6) Install PF patch 6.66

Is that right?

I thought that it went:

1. install FB
2. install AEP
3. install AEP patch 2.01

As for PF, it will probably be easier.

1. install PF (stand alone product)
2. install PF patch...

Like they say... IL-2 FB, ACES, patch v2.01.
You do not have to reinstall IL-2 any version if your computer crashes... simply don't install it on C: , install it on D: (like I was http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif----D:\games\IL-2) or other partition than system partition.
When my computer crashes I already have IL-2 FB 1.22 on D: drive. Then I reinstall WinXP and then without problem install "ACES" over FB 1.22. (ACES setup found automatically where I install FB).

For real, you threw in that 1.22 for no reason, you can just go like everyone sed:

FB -&gt; ACE -&gt; 2.01 3 steps....not 4.

Step 1. (optional) Format Drive
Step 2. disconnect computer
Step 3. Put out at curb with sign: Hate computers, please take mine!
Step 4. Go to neighbors house and ask to use their computer to post in UBI forum that you've completed Steps 1-3 so we can rejoice.

Sheesh...the whining that goes on over NOTHING!

S!
