Hello everyone,

i'm happy to say that another IL-2 4.09b Dedicated Server patch is being released.
It is being released 3 weeks ago,way before the other was,and was kept in the bulgarian and czech community of IL-2 for testing.So far we didn't met any problems or bugs with it.
And now we want to tell to the rest of the world wide IL-2 community that we have released an fully working 4.09b patch.
This patch have nothing to do with the 4.09b patch of the "other" site.
Our version is just like she was released by 1C!
Have the original 1C anti cheat protections,even the lattest ones which are better.And the most important is...It's small and easy to instal.You'll see by yourself.
Just one single,packed .sfs file with all the stuff you need for 4.09b!
Here is an photo of an test that a friend of mine did on an test 4.09B server:

As you see,it's just like the original server patchs since now!

All the credits for this Christmas Gift are going to an programmer known under the callsign "LesniHU"!

EDIT:For info on this,go to my clan site's forum,you'll find it there.
We're the first only host so far of this patch,so i hope you'll find us quickly.

I hope it won't be a problem that i'm posting this here,but if it is,please take my deepest excuses! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Salute!And let's hope we all will be flying on 4.09b Dedicated Servers and over the nice Slovakia and Barbarossa maps textures!

@Urufu_Shinjiro:
Ok,i've changed my signature and i've changed the post,so no mod links are included...Sorry about that.Wasn't here for some time and i see some new forum rules,will read them when i have time.
@Zorin:
About your question Zorin,no you don't need any update of SC or FB.
We're still testing it.Our two community's didn't found any bugs so far,so we're posting this here so the world wide can test himself.
~12k testers are way better then just 250.
Hopefully if no bug appears,which is most likely to be,then the final version will appear instantly.

Yes,the Slovakia or Barbarossa maps are able to make anyone fly again online!

I wonder if out there is anyone of the staff of some of the big servers on the lobby,so they can test this server when online are some 60 players playing.
This is the last step for testing needed....If no bug appears,then it's working 100% correct and will be released as an fully working server update file. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Sounds interesting...
But a simple question: if it has got nothing to do with the v4.09b patch of AAA are mods not allowed then like 6DOF, soundmod, etc.
Or do I sound like a newbie now? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif

I didn't know there were servers which allow mods.. I've only flown offline, and I don't think I could do without the 6DoF mod online.

I don't know how server software works, so I'm not completely sure of the answer to Ufflake's question, but that is a mod cockpit in the screenshot so I think that's your answer.

Gnomie, some online servers allow mods, others don't. If you want to fly both you'll have to get the switcher from AAA. It's easy to use. Then if you've got mods enabled and try to join a no-mods server, you just won't be able to join.

I think most servers allow mods nowadays. Notable exceptions include Spits-v-109s, Zeke-v-Wildcat, and Warclouds.

Also, you will now need to check to see if the server is running 4.09 or 4.08 and switch to the appropriate patch. I suppose it will say in their Hyperlobby "join/difficulty" window which patch they run.

This all may confuse things.. I sure wish the official 4.09 and ded server patches would be released. But it will be nice to fly the Slovakia and Bessarabia maps online, they are beautiful.

That's actually what confuses me. So if it has got nothing to do with AAA's V4.09b patch why do I see an AAA mod (Bf-109 cockpit with girlfriend picture)?

I think if you read through what has been posted this is actually pretty much the beta version of what will eventual be the official 4.09 dedicated server.

Also, whether a server allows mods or not is by using the checkruntime setting in the conf.ini file of the software.

Hi everyone.

This server patch may be set to allow mods or not to allow them.It's all controlled by the CheckRunTime=* option.If CRT=2,then you must use the unmoded version of the game.
But CRT=2,do let some mods pass.But he kicks players that are using heavy mods like the 6 DoF or have any other "Buttons" file,which is containing other newer planes then those in the stock IL-2 "Buttons" file.
He also does not allows hacked plane users to pass.For exemple someone did the A-9 FM to be like the FM of an La-7,and to blow up enemy plane with only one birst of only one of his MG-151/20 cannons (Weapon mod).
SO far it is knows that CRT=2 can let players with only visual-sound modifications and the stock AI planes made flyable to pass.But nothing else.

In general,it has the 4.08 functions so far.
It can allow mods,and it cannot.
But for one thing i'm sure;When you set CRT=2 there will be no mercy for the heavy mods.
That's what is making it a bit different from the other 4.09b available,i think.IF i'm wrong correct me.Because as far as i see,the other 4.09b that is available is based on the "hacked" basis.It is not packed in one .sfs file.Which is making it easy to hack,and i'm sure it won't work efficiently with CRT=2,because of the simple reason that it is "hacked" version of 4.08m.But if someone have tested it and have other view point of the how stuff is sitting,pls let me now.
So this server has the better grafic options in it+Slovakia map+Barbarossa map and if there was something else in the official 4.09b done by 1C.
It is just like it was publushed by 1C.

In future,i'll talk with Lesni,may be added some new mod maps like Cannon's Battle Of Brittain map or Mediterranian Airwar Map,which is now being used at IL-2 war.
So maybe 5.0 Dedicated server patch may arrive,but i think that this one is better for now. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

So in general:

@Uufflakke:

Don't worry,it's an important question.
If the 4.09b server have the CRT=2 not set,then you can have the 6 DoF or any other mod available.
And if this 4.09b server has the CRT=2,then you must disable the mods,using switcher or by manual.

@Billy_DeLyon:

This server is pakced into .sfs file.Noone have .sfs file packing software but only one man,and i'm sure you know who he is. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
Then the answer is simple...We did Oleg's job on this one,so Oleg does not have to release another 4.09b.Or maybe he will have to,if he have the Fokker finnished. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

@WTE_Galway:

The cockpit reskin...It is an mod by Freddy,published/shown/uploaded at AAA.Not created by/for AAA.
And by the time this mod was created,there was no other mod site online.So i'm sure Freddy was about to upload it on any other IL-2 mod site too.
