I always get timed out when trying to connect. This never happens with any other online games!! ex battfield 1942 comanche4 etc. Should I throw this game away or is it worth the effort to continue to get it working? I have version 1.11 and I reinstalled it twice and still nothing any different. As I am reading about this problem I find it is wide spread.

Really need so help before this game will crash and burn in the firepit behind the house..

I'm an offline player only so can't actually help, but I'm sure you'll be asked who you're connecting with, UBI or Hyperlobby?

If it happens with all games then try disabling your firewall. If it works then you must tell the firewall to allow the game to access the internet. Try this and post back. What firewall do you have, are you on a modem do you have a router etc etc. You need to post more of your sytem specs

Try this, open IL-2FB setup (start menu/IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles/setup) open network tab if IP says "default" highlight the lowest address click OK. That should work. If not try the other one. You might have to re-do this everytime you play (mine always resets back to default) Hope that helps ya /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

UBI game server sucks. Bad maintenance and user-unfriendly (pls don't ban me for this /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )


Get the Hyperlobby software for free from http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz (NOT www .hyperlobby.com)


There are several hundreds of ppl over there every night. with peaks up to 6,7 or 800!! And there are several online wars you can join. But, there is still plenty of room for those who want some quick fun with this beautifull sim.



Happy flying!!

I take it you patched the game to 1.11 and also edited the registry....
After that the ip is most likely the thing, and if you try disabling the fire wall and you are able to join, reconnect the wall and work out how to use IL2FB with it on, dont leave yourself vulnerable.
