Me thinks my recently acquired IL-2 FB is about to go on the shelf. First, the insert CD2 thing, then the patch of 45mb. The screen says to download the rtf file and read it first except it will not download on my system. I press on regardless and download the patch, it takes nearly 2 hours and then when I try to open the patch I get a checksum error and it will not open. Was this sim designed to make microsoft look good or what?

That's the prompt you get when you click on the shortcut to activate the program...and the #2 CD is not in the CD drive.

-----------------------------

I think I would advise the starter of this thread...

Just use the IL2-FB for a while until you're more knowlegable about using the software. The patch improvements will not mean much to any neophyte, since they address a issues that relate more to advanced usage of the IL2-FB.

Don't be discouraged...

Gosh.... I haven't seen that alert in ages. Maybe there is something available that lets you run the game without the CD? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

Me Again,

Apologies, I think I have had server problems which accounts for poor download performance this morning. Will persevere.

WOW! Now let me see if I understand this RBJ logic... Ok, your ISP of 56K is not only slow, but blows and thus crupted the file you downloaded and it is UBI's fault? Huh! And we all wonder why there is no peace in the middle east?
