View Full Version : Ostfront Expansion for Il2 question

01-22-2007, 03:38 PM
I just ran across an Exdpansion for IL2 forgotten battles at fry's electronics. Being an il2 complusive player, I had no choice but to buy it.
I haven't opened it yet so I could take it back, but my question is: Will this work with the new 1946 4.071 ?

Has anyone else gotten this expansion ? Is it any good?

My 1946 with the patch is working so well that I don't want to do anything to mess it up...

Should work but you might have to manually input the install folder .Id be VERY surprised if it didnt work after this

It will work well. Make sure that you install Ostfront version 1.1 (the latest), or if not, patch it (patch available on X1 software site). Also, back up the DGen folder entirely in a safe place before installing Ostfront. Ostfront overwrites some stock DGen campaigns, such as for a German fighter in Crimea, so it is better to copy the entire DGen folder somewhere else on your hard drive, in case you want those original standard DGen campaigns.

Also, update your DGen.exe and DGen folder, as well as your skins, with the latest DGen update by IanBoys (the author of Ostfront), available on the SimHQ forum (search the forum for the latest DGen upgrade). You will then also have Burma campaigns.
