View Full Version : Return?

11-06-2007, 06:07 PM
Hi fellas,

I have been off the IL2 multiplayer since 4.01 patch and playing BF2 and Joint ops too long.
I want to return to playing Il2 but as my patches are so far out I have 2 questions:

1) is it worth buying IL2 1946 on DVD? I have heard bad things about getting it to run, have these problems been fixed?

2)I was about to download 1946 from ubisoft digital shop but I live in the U.K is it downloadable for U.K customers website says only available in U.S

Thanks for your time

Yes it is worth it. you will get a hell of a lot more than you ever had from carriers etc through to new aircraft.

The DVD is good and no real problems, you will need to download one patch at the moment... 4.08............ I wouldn't download the game as its huge, the disc goes for a pittance now anyway and nothing beats the hard copy so to speak, will probably be cheaper than UBI

9.48 on Amazon, see link and even cheaper on EBAY

Thanks for that info,
I was worried about the problems I have read about the copyright protection not letting the .exe file run

I will go get a copy, maybe see you in those skys sometime soon!

Buy the disk if you can find it.. or get it online...but dont DL it.. a hard disk in the hand is worth... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I think that more people had problems installing the Pacific Fighters discs than the current 1946 DVD.
