S! All
Any problems I should be aware of before adding the expansion pack? Do I need to save any settings from FB?

i added mine over 1.22 patch ( latest before aep) Didnt work. uninstalled fb en reinstalled added patch and viola...Never had no probs since.
There can be a problem with the sound and game stops. Seems to depend om the soundcard used. If so download the other sound dll somewhere at ubi.

Mayby ( i wasnt that smart at the time my self) is to save some of your ini settings so that u can past it in the new ini file if you have to start from scratch.

It should work over V1.22 - only thing to do is check that the file bldconf.ini is NOT read-only beforehand.

AEP can be installed over 1.22 or 1.0, and even can be mixed with other add-ons like Case Blue and Operation Barbarossa SE.

IF bldconf.ini IS read-only, you will not get the "Rocket" objects in FMB. To get access to it you have to add the line

(builder.PlMisRocket,sectFile=com/maddox/il2/objects/rockets.ini)

under [builder_plugins] header.

Best Copy-and-Paste that line if you have to...

It's always a good idea to back up your configs, skins and any custom files like speech packs etc, before upgrading. If all goes well, thats great, but in case it overwrites or has problems, at least all your custom things are safe.
