You need to manually point the HL to PF.exe, I forget the keystroke(Im at work), but it is simple to do and someone will pop in here soon with the answer.
Or alternatively go here:


Clear instructions how to do it:
When you try to connect to a game room, HL may pop up the game-location dialog. This happens when HL is not properly set up or cant automatically detect the game location. This dialog can be forced by pressing CTRL+SHIFT and left-clicking on the CONNECT button. There are two ways to enter the correct game-installation folder:
1. Type the game path into the text box with the name of the game executable, for example "C:my gamegameapp.exe", then press the Save button.
2. Left-click the Search button and wait until HL finds your game folder. Then double-click on the correct item and select save.
If you think that both of these methods have failed, right-click your game icon, select properties, and copy and paste the game path into the textbox and left-click the Save button. (If nothing works, try reading this manual from the beginning.)

There are 2 installs of PF.The standalone and the merged.The standalone is 4.01 and the merged is 4.01m.

There are 2 lobbies for PF at HyperLobby. The room for the standalone version is Pacific fighters.The room for the merged is Forgotten Battles.

Each room looks for only a specific exe file.Forgotten Battles looks only for IL2fb.exe.Pacific Fighters looks only for pf.exe.You can make they show in other rooms by renaming but then you will not have the correct version to join games.

No renaming is necessary.
