I read a thread detailing how to have both versions of the game on the same machine but I can't find it now. Can anyone point me to the thread or detail how to do it?

Many thanks

AEP is the addon. These are not 2 separate games. Install FB if you do not already have it installed then install AEP. You will need FB to install AEP. As for needing FB patches, don't worry about it, AEP will update everything.

Not necessary to install both! By following these instructions you can switch back and forth at will.
Do this first. Install the Ace Expansion Pack over V1.0.
Then open your IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles folder.
Click Tools, Folder Options,
View. Then bullet-Show hidden files and folders. Uncheck-Hide extensions for known
file types, and click OK.

Then create a new folder inside your IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles folder.
Call it AEP
Copy these now existing AEP files into your new folder:

files.SFS

mg_snd.dll


Next make a .bat file.
To do this you must first create a New Text Document by right clicking in the white
area inside your IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles folder, select New, Text Document.
Left double click to open it.
Copy exactly the 2 lines of text below into your new document.


echo Y
copy AEP\*.* .


Then go to file, save, and exit.
Rename the New Text Document.txt to AEP.bat
Locate your newly created AEP.bat file, right click and create shortcut.
Place it on your desktop.

Next create another new folder inside your IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles folder.
Call it 1.22
Download and unzip the "1.22 patch" files into this new folder: You can find it here:
patch122_over121.exe

You should now see files.SFS, mg_snd.dll and a word doc (you can delete the word doc) in this 1.22 file folder.

Next make another .bat file.
Copy exactly the 2 lines of text below into your new document.

echo Y
copy 1.22\*.* .

Then go to file, save, and exit.
Rename the New Text Document.txt to 122.bat
Locate your newly created 122.bat file, right click and create shortcut.
Place it on your desktop.

By clicking on these desktop shortcuts you change the version. Then start the game as you would normally!
