    I used to have problems with frame rates on PF. Then decided to download all the patches and it fixed the problem, only to be stuck with a new problem. Since I downloaded the patches (up to 4.04). I now get CTD's when playing PF and any other game that I have. Even my poor kid can't play Barney now without having CTD's.
    It definitely must be the patches that caused this. I didn't install anything else just before or since I installed the patches. Does anyone have the same problems or knows how to fix it?

    I can't remember ever having a CTD with this game and I've been playing it since 2003. It's legendarily stable.

    If you're sure it's the patches conflicting in some way with your system then I'd suggest a re-install and see how you get on.

    Try this to narrow it down:
    - (Re-)Boot the machine
    - Play Barney and/or whatever other game but PF

    * If you get a CTD, it's surely not PF or its patches that caused it

    * If you did not get a CTD there:
    - Check your patching (as in: did they all download okay? Did you apply the right ones in the correct order?)

    If all still fails: go start a thread in the Community Help Forum and include a DxDiag Report there.

    (There are many possible causes, one of 'm is dust: clogged up fans and case openings in combination with running games can seriously overheat the computer...)

    I've had lots of CTD's with IL2, all caused by overheating, overclocking , overdriving etc.

    Never down to the game as such...

    Good Luck!

    Sounds like you might have gotten either a corrupt patch or the wrong one.


    $30.00 Problem solved. Thats $10 an add on. That is by far your best bet. Keep in mind thyat the add ons were originally going for $20 apiece.

    Or the fact that you may or may not have updated the DirectX files. That you are crashing out of other games tells me it's likely not IL2 iteself, but rather a video problem. Update vid drivers to start off.

    Agree completely with BC. If you like the game even a tiny bit, buy the DVD and toss out that legacy of discs and patches.
