Here is the correct patching sequence from the sticky at the top of this page:

For merged Forgotten Battles/Ace Expansion Pack/Pacific Fighters:

Install FB
Install AEP
Install PF
Install patch pf_patch303m.exe (100MB)
Install patch pf_patch401m.exe (141MB)
Install patch pf_v402m.exe (31MB)
Install patch pf_patch403m.exe (155MB)
Install patch pf_patch404m.exe (21.8MB)

If you have the FB Gold Pack then disregard the reference to install AEP above.

Sorry I just got PF and Il-2 on Ebay but what is this merged thing. I hear that there is a dvd with both games and the expansion pack. Is this what the "m" patches for? The reason I ask is because I tried to join an online game through Hyperlobby and it said I had the wrong version. The version being played is 404m. So, what can I do to join a 404m game? Thanks.

Ok. Now I get it. I did a search on "merged". Then I reread your post and it now makes sense. Thank you. I've been playing Warbirds online but the cockpit graphics aren't so hot. This looks better. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
