*grin*

It's not shipped with FB, but it is included in one of the patches.

It is worth getting, it adds an awful lot, including extra flyable planes as the best bit (the P51 mustang is the most notable one that got added i think).

I was in the very same boat. A member here (Thanks again Bearcat) was kind enough to put the patches/updates/other cool stuff on a CDROM and mail it to me. I am still confused by a couple things but- the patches were self loading, as were most of the other things like extra campaigns.

I beleive that the AEP updates FB as well, but, if you like, send me a PT and give me your address and I will make a copy of the CD and I'll mail it to you. It's really really worth it, in my opinion. The P-51 is a dream ride for me, especially with all the skins available for it. The B-17 is great, it adds a lot of potential to FB. Also, if I'm not mistaken, even though I don't play at perfect level graphics, I think individual trees are visible in a forest at a much lower altitude.

you can fly it without a cockpit externally only, if you go to 3d gamers they will put the patches on a cd for you for a small cost and mail them to you, if you are in the uk i will send em to you for free.... or maybe some kind soul in here from your home country will..... the aces add on pack might have them in it, but thats just wishful thinking on my part i suppose..

there are trees visible, i have got the new ones enabled in the config file, but what you see on those pictures are what i get on my screen :)

all the planes and maps included in this patch are included in the Aces expansion as well. So you can just install FB 1.0 and get the Aces Expansion (US today, europe around the 14th) and that's it. No need to download anything now. ;)

just in case you haven't heard of AEP yet. AEP is on a CD. ;)

And just in case you don't know what AEP stands for...

AEP = "Ace Expansion Pack" - an OFFICIAL add-on to Forgotten Battles, which includes all the patches that have been released for FB... and of course, it also features a vast amount of new planes, maps and bugfixes...

Ask your local dealer when "Ace" should be available near you.

S!

Don't be afraid to download patches with dial-up; it just takes longer, that's all. I've downloaded FB patches on a crappy dial-up connection with a maximum connection speed of 40k. The ISP would reset the connection every hour or so for some evil reason too.

Just download Net Ants or Get Right or some similar download manager and begin the download when other people with your ISP are less likely to be online and busy. It takes a while, but every patch for FB seems to be well worth the download.


Your best bet now, however, is to wait a couple of weeks and get the Aces Expansion Pack, as it will undoubtedly contain everything the previous patches have.
