View Full Version : Il-2 MAT Manager Question

12-05-2007, 06:39 PM
I've seen the way this program looks, and I would like to install it.
The markings and nationality insignias look great.
However, the procedures for installing it seem, uh,....rather complex.
Is there anyone around here who uses this program? And if so, could you tell me the proper steps to go about installing it?

It's really not so tough to install; it just requires a little preparation first and a lot of time waiting for all the files to get moved around.

If you are using Vista, you'll want to have '1946' installed outside of your Program Files folder. You'll also want to install IL2-MAT Manager outside of Program Files.

Rename a copy of il2fb (aka il2fb.exe) in your game's folder to il2 and put the renamed copy back in your game folder.

Add ClearCache=0 to your conf.ini file.

That's the big stuff...check my "Updating 1946" link in my sig for more detailed (and maybe more accurate) information. Also, take a look at these threads:
