UQMG for IL2FB UPGRADE 4.3.2! AEP Edition

Dear UQMG users from the IL-2 FB Community,

Sorry for the delays in this release, but as you know, my personal and professional life are chaotic at best.

Now for the good news. I am extremely excited to announce the immediate availability of the most exciting UQMG upgrade to date, even more so than the last update. It is free, of course, and will bring your UQMG to version 4.3.2. The total number of updates and new features are too many describe, so I will highlight the most important ones below. All in all, IL-2 FB will bring you now more enjoyment than ever with the new features in UQMG.

Before you read the new features, this version is compatible with IL2FB 1.21 and 1.22 as well, but you will not be able to use the AEP planes and features if you do not have AEP installed. Additionally, Shift_E's QMT, although discontinued by Shift_E, can be updated from UQMG with the new aircraft available.

* First and foremost, UQMG is now 100% compatible with every new feature in the IL-2 Ace Expansion Pack (AEP):
+ All new aircraft, new weapons, AI Planes that are now flyable
+ All new regiments
+ V-1 compatible with cloning (all maps, all mission types)
+ Flyable Mistel and SPB (Fly bomber or fighter) with cloning

* New Maps and Map Features
- Kuban, Kursk, and Prokhorovka for Single/Coop
- Added ground win objectives for Air Combat in Net 3 "Channel" Map

* NEW FEATURE: Ability to create your own Rule or Plane set with a wizard integrated in the object database. Create your customized Rule and Plane Sets for Single, Coop and Dogfights with great ease. These rule sets will NOT be overwritten by future upgrades.

* 93 New sample uqmg data missions to get you going with the new features. The missions are located in the "save\upgrd0006" and are organized by map. New missions stress new features and maps, but include some surprises.

* Ability to ban AI planes in Dogfight Arenas with a simple click in the main GUI, REGARDLESS of Rule Set. You can uncheck it if you want to use this UbiSoft/Maddox unsuported feature in a Rule Set that allows them.

* Numerous other updates plus all previous updates are included in this upgrade.

To install this upgrade:
========================
* Download WinZIP file from http://www.uberdemon.com
* UnZIP it in the directory you installed UQMG for IL2 FB (most likely "c:\program files\uberquickfb"). Best way to do that is to Right Click on the zip file and then go to the Winzip options, then select "Extract Here".
* Start UQMG as usual.
* ONLY INSTALL UPGRADE AFTER YOU'VE RUN THE ORIGINAL UQMG INSTALLATION SUCCESSFULLY AND PLAYED AT LEAST ONE UQMG GENERATED MISSION IN IL-2 FB!!!! IF YOU INSTALL UPGRADE BEFORE YOU RUN UQMG, IT WILL NEVER WORK. If you do that you will need to uninstall UQMG from the Windows Control Panel, then manually erase the UQMG directory, then you will need to re-install it, go through every step without skipping anything, then run it, follow instructions when running, generate a mission, if successful then install upgrade. Needless to say, read the instructions.
* If you get asked to overwrite a file, say "Yes to All".

Thank you so much, Uberdemon, Sir.

We are all very indebted to you for all the time that you have put into this. I understand that you must enjoy your work on this, but the personal time that it cuts into must be astronomical. Please forgive me for saying this so soon, but I hope that you are able to do one more upgrade when the last AEP patch/addon is released. I use UQMG more than any other 3rd party utility for this game, and it is a wonderful program.

Please, Community . . . If you use UD's software, consider a donation. He has a paypal account listed at his site, in case you want to do that. It would be a nice way to say "thanks".

Uber: Thanks a bunch; fantastic addition to an already great product. Question: I have already installed and played the previous version(s) of UQMG. If I read your instructions correctly, all that is necessary for the latest (AEP) version is to install it over the existing files and you are ready to play. Is that correct, or am I missing a step somewhere?

Thanks again,

~Eddie

At the top left corner click file then click open. This will open the saved folder. The missions are displayed there and then just highlight one and click open. It will then load on the UQMG screen. Then just click create mission now button. For missions created for AEP open one of the upgrd folders and they are there. I just flew several of them and they are great fun.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif It was a breeze to install the new updated UberDemon. With Dial-up service... I had it up and running in less than 20 min's. And it is a GREAT piece of work... the only way to go if you use FMB or QMB with IL-2. What a P-sser when your flying up againest a Bomber Stream and it Escort of 40 to 50 aircraft with your Fighter of choice!
I wish the Ace's Patch was the as easy to download. Started yesterday with the Ace's Patch and still downloading on the second try... with 27MB left to go.
But this is what makes Life Good.

Kondor99... you have to found out what your computer can manage... as far as the number of aircraft you can use or the amount of gound vehicals, ect. To many and even the best computer will bog down.
UberDemon though is a Super add on for IL-2. Flying a mission againest a Bomber stream of 40 aircraft is Mint. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

Yes, but you cannot use the new planes in 2.01 in UQMG... because I released the patch a few hours before the AEP patch from Ubi was released. Some programs are easy to update, but mine has gotten complex in the last three years.

When I do an upgrade, I am serious, I check every plane for changes, and do painstaking work to get it into the UQMG database. There is a lot of work involved.

I'll start working on the new upgrade soon though.

All you need to do is install the patch over your working copy of UQMG following the instructions. The engine version will go to 4.3.2. fb100 is the main Forgotten Battles template; do not worry about that. For example, when Pacific fighters comes out, it will probably be something like pf100. This is just so the UQMG knows where to find the info.

... I released the AEP UQMG upgrade a few hours before Ubi made the AEP patch public. So the new patch 2.01 planes are not there.

A new upgrade will come out with them and some other surprises, but as I posted before, UQMG upgrades are thorough. There are database updates and a ton of very tedious work that goes into updating it, so it will take some time, but not too much, I hope.

I need to finish the Crimea map first for Single, then I need to add the new Desert map and the two remaining Normandy maps, plus all those cool new simple and plain maps in the FMB.

I have a very similar setup with same RAM and video card, resolution, except that I have a slower processor, it runs pretty well (2.53 GHz). You may have a lot of background processes running.

Make sure you set your Virtual memory manually, and by all means turn off anti-virus (only while playing off-line, and not connected to internet), turn off an annoying MS application called "mdm.exe", etc. To disable these processes start the Task Manager (in XP) with Ctr-Alt-Del, then select Processes tab, and highlight proceses you want to terminate.

With UQMG, you can easily change those missions to fit your needs. Decrease some of the ground objects. The more moving ground objects, the more FPS. The sameple missions are fun because they get you going, but you can always create your own from scratch in seconds.

The main thing to keep in mind is that if you want your mission to be a ground attack missions, the "Ground Target" setting must be checked, all other objects can be unchecked. You can try decreasing the number of planes as well.
