Does the existing IL2 MAT work with IL2 1946 or do we have to wait for the dedicated version of IL2 MAT to be released?If it does,what is the procedure for installation?

MMmm...
I also followed, that thread and I can't get it to launch.
Tried renaming file but IL2 Mat keeps saying it cannot find it. Even after going down route.

Have since removed IL2 Mat in its entirety.

Is it worth a reinstall from 2.33plus to 2.36 with all the to and froing required.
BTW. It is a great addon to 4.04m.
Thanks! ACE. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Can you explain step-by-step how to do it, please?
I've not been able to figure it out so far...despite quite a lot of trying!
Thanks very much!

Make sure you only have 4.07 installed

On the Copied FB file Just rename it il2
That is, after you have went through the MAT Manager Install process I.E from 2.33plus to 2.66.To the '46 folder Remember to remove each MAT Manager Programe as you go through installing each MM update.(It's ok to do this, as all apropriate files for markings are still saved within game folder.)

Go to '46 config files and type ClearCache=0 below the Game part.
.
On launch of MAT you will be asked for the route file. Go to where '46 is installed and click OK.

MAT should launch.(You may require a restart to get a clean Game launch as the cursor will probably freeze first time out. But should be OK after).<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It still don't work. Could you clarify this statement "Make sure you only have 4.07 installed"? Do you mean that I would have to uninstall all previous versions then put 4.07 back.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I agree, BH-21.

I`m thinking of making a step-by step tutorial that explains it very simply, I mean, even I got confused and I`ve used it before. For some strange reason, it never seems adequately explained. For instance, the IL2exe thing should be explained "rename IL2fb icon (which is an exe or execute that starts the game) in your IL2 folder to `IL2` only". But there are other little omissions too which make the difference between success or frustration.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Right, I have 4.07 and MAT Manager works fine.

I started by uninstalling my old MAT Manager (pointing to 4.05).

(1) Copied the 'il2fb.exe' file out of 4.07 installation. Renamed 'il2.exe'. Replaced in 4.07 folder.

(2) Created folder called 'CoopRegt' in root folder 'C:Program Files\Ubisoft\Il2 Sturmovik 1946' (MAT Manager should do this but I always do it manually just in case).

(3) Then started with v.2.33 of MAT Manager making sure that installers pointed to correct version of Il2.

(4) Uninstalled MAT Manager 2.33 program with 'Add/Remove Programs' feature in 'Control Panel'. NB - do not clear out any of the MAT files placed in your FB installation, just get rid of the program

(5) Installed v2.34 update of MAT Manager, making sure it was pointed to 4.07

repeat steps (4) & (5) untill you get to v2.36 of MAT Manager.

I hope this shows up something you fellows have missed, if not you have my condolences...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I did EXACTLY that and it STILL will not display the mats. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

NOooo!

You don't have to launch.. Hee Haw

Right! It's Christmas in a couple of hours(Over Here. Scotland.)

Now. Since the new DVD contains every Patch Addon.(Why would you want to conserve your Old game?).

Right!!! You have got the New 4.07 disk.
Put it in your computer and let it run.

Now after you have had your coffee/tea/ Whatever beverage. You will be confronted with the Play/UninstallBillboard.
X it and go to your Programs file.
You will find you have UBISOFT listed a couple of times.If you click on the one where all your Original files are installed. You will feel all warm and snuggly.
However you will have to search through these folders/Files to find which ones to transfer to FB'46 .
Select your favs Skins/Missions/Campaigns.
and move them to '46
Now delete your IL2/FB/AEP/PF folder.
Internet the Mat manager site(This is purely done if you have never saved the download and put it straight to game. Otherwise look for IL2 Mat within (Probably "My Do***ents" )

As long as Mat manager files are above 2.33 plus. Then proceed.
Click on the files and let them run towards your installed '46
You may have been here before. But however when these files are run (They will default to coop missions) you will be asked to install MAT Manager.(This is a seperate program)
Carry on.
However! On each install of the Mat Manager upgrades(2.33plus to 2.36)You will be downloading TGA files.
These will automatically go to your game IE '46 folder. So do not worry about them.
What you have to do during each install of Mat manager is Remove the Mat manager program.
If you bring up Add/Remove programs on your "Control Panel" list .
You will find Mat manager.
During each new upgrade (IE 2.33plus to 2.36 you will have to remove this program).
So between 2.33plus and 2.36 you have installed the TGA files to your Game(IL2 FB'46 folder) and have been deleating and installing Mat manager.
Now within your Program/Ubisoft?Stormovik'46 files you will find a file that has a picture of a corsair/F4U coming towards you. This is the exe. file.
Right click on it and move it to somewhere else. My Do***ents, or wherever.
Wherever you have moved it to left click and find it. Right click and rename it. il2 then copy and send to your'46 folder.
You will now have two files with the corsair pic. One with il2fb and one with just il2(This is the MAT Manager one)
Now you should have the Mm(Mat manager Icon on your desktop?
When you click on this(And do what you want/used to do?)
Launch Mat manager to start il2fb and you will be asked to find the route of where IL2 is.
Go to Ubisoft/Sturmovik'46 and it should find it.
Think it would be advisable to Restart your computer at this point(You have been installing deleating/re-installing/renaming items upto this point
Mat manager should launch.
But Go to your '46 config ini files and add the line Under "Game" ClearCache=0
A defrag wouldn't go amiss).

And I think you should have it?

OK. Tried my best http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

MERRY CHRISTMAS! AND A HAPPY NEW IL2! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

I had both installed (4.07 & 4.05)

I moved my PF folder to my portable harddrive.

I uninstalled MM from Add/Remove Programs. I have already made a copy of my IL2fb.exe and renamed it "Il2.exe" and put back into 1946 folder. Then I reinstalled MM starting with v2.33. Add/Remove MM then installed 2.34 ...exc.

I only have 1946 on my hard drive. I have set the instalation path to my 1946 instalation. I have done everything incramentally and the mats will still not display. I have done this more than once, and it still is not working.

I am completely stumped.

-Removed old instalation
-Renamed IL2fb as IL2 and put back into 1946 folder
-uninstalled, then reinstalled MM
-?????
