Ok so I downloaded 4.04m for my game. I only have FB and Aces. After I install the patch.... the window pops up with the plane in it stays for about 5 seconds then disapears... then the game doesnt load.

I tried downloading the 3.03 to see if that would fix it... same deal... what did I do and how do I fix it?

You need IL-2 Forgotten Battles, Aces Expansion Pack (not ACES Campaigns as this is just an addon for missions), and Pacific Fighter installed as a merged install. Then you will need the five patches to take you to 4.04m. And if you want 4.05m, you will need to go here: http://shop.ubi.com/default.asp

Choose the English flag on the left side and low on the web page, and purchase the Pe-2 addon.

You need IL2:FB + Aces + PF for the patch to work.

If you only have Forgotten Battles and AEP ONLY, you need AEP V2.01 and AEP V2.04 ONLY. It appears you applied a Pacific Fighters patch to FB+AEP.

1. Load FB V1.0

2. Merge AEP V2.0

3. Patch V2.01, then V2.04

Fly and have fun. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Recommend getting Pacific Fighters. A few V2.04 servers still around, but most fly PF merged. Good luck.

Yep, probably going to need a reinstall. Once your flyin PF merged and patch up to 4.04, remember: the rudder is your friend during takeoff. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Can someone link me to the Ace's patchs... they only have the PF merged patchs on the site...

the description of old paches were pulled from the site, but
here is a direct link to the patches themselves:


you probably need these 2 files:
il2_fb_aep_v2.01.exe 04-Nov-2004 20:01 102M
il2_fb_aep_v2.04.exe 04-Nov-2004 23:00 19.7M
