Hey guys, Played IL2 at a friends house while house sitting like a year + ago.

Just downloaded the game off ubisoft. Dont know if its the current version or not (or how to check)

Also noticed its the old school multiplayer way. Wondering if there are any 3rd party apps to find servers playing IL-2.

Nummer 1 - Never download games off the Inet..
Nummer 2 - Buy the IL2-1946 DVD from your local mart.
Nummer 3 - Download version 4.08M for inet play.
Nummer 4 - Duplicate the game folder and download version 4.09Beta for fun.
Nummer 5 - Google 'Hyperlobby' or 'All Seeing Eye' (much better) for Inet play.

NB: There are NO mods for this game. Any mods are hacks and 'illegal' for online play http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I had to order mine from the importer NWS through their Yahoo store.

I was pretty happy with the results. Got me a copy as they weren't selling 1946 anywhere in Canada at the time.

GoGame might still be selling as well.

The ONLY version of the game that you want is IL-2 1946. This version comes with everything from the entire series plus new stuff not previously available. And yep...HyperLobby is definitely the place to be for multiplayer combat of all kinds.

Yah i have the game already via the net.

HyperLobby cant seem to find the game even tho its in a diffrent drive it cant seem to sniff it

Forget the best way to practice take off and landings as i just did it on servers not offline.

Also what is the configure to zoom in on your reticle / dive bomber reticle? Its been too long!

Download my "Straight From the Farm" campaign to practice takeoffs and landings (see the link below). The campaign starts on land and then moves to carrier operations. The campaign covers a lot of the basic functions that you need to map like whell chocks, dive flaps, dive bombing sight, etc.

Also check out the Nuggets' Guide on the General Discussion forum for more tips on how to fly.

if you want to play online you'll find most people play at Hyperlobby. Information on that is in the Nuggets' Guide.

great thanks for all the help guys.

I have just been joinging servers Via X-Fire, which isnt the greatest but it will do for now. even tho i need to get the hang of things offline. Lease I can still take off just fine.. was airborne second attempt http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Probably shouldnt have triend a bomber for the first


Also. Recomend having the gun distance 200m?

200m is not too bad. I normally have ~150 for air to air, and 250m for ground attack.

Now try landing... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Get AllSeeingEye Kris. It's better than XFire, still free and provides the IP in case you want to join via direct IP.

And welcome.
