How do you get online all it does is says join server ::2100. i click join and then it just says please wait. It never does anything else

Thats because :2100 is a port number for a server but you haven't specified the IP address. Thats sort of like dialing someones work extension without dialing the actual phone number.

So you CAN use that interface if you know the IP address of the server you want to connect to. But the better way is to use another program called HyperLobby which connects you to a listing of many many many IL-2 servers.


Download from that URL...set it up...get online and then select the server of your choice and get gaming.

Good luck!

Use Hyperlobby like Icefore says, once installed pick the Forgotten Battles room.

Once you are connected to the server and flying, open your chat box with 't' key and drag the corner od the box bigger with the mouse.

The default is one line of text and you miss lots of messages and chat if you leave it at this. Drag the box so it shows about 6 lines of text, then you can use the coomands to see how the battle is going

<targets<blue or <planes or other commands
