Salute Smokincrater

The game now is IL-2 STURMOVIK 1946. You can get it online for $10. Latest patch is 4.08m.

You can download the 4.08m patch here:

http://mission4today.com/index...e=Downloads&get=1908 (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&get=1908)

Click on the blue highlighted text to download:

il2_1946_408m.zip

Installing:

When it is finished downloading, you need to double click on the zipped file to install it.

Make sure it unzips to your IL-2 STURMOVIK 1946 folder.

You should then be good to go.

<<<

Do you want to fly online?

Then you need to get HYPERLOBBY. Most players who fly IL-2 use this system.

Hyperlobby can be downloaded here:

http://hyperfighter.sk/

Follow the instructions carefully.

The game you want to select is "Forgotten Battles", NOT "IL-2". Also, some people have a problem in not pointing the Hyperlobby program at the right .exe. Make sure you point it at your IL-2 FB .exe. This is the file called 'il2fb' inside your main IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 folder, and which looks like a small icon of a Corsair, blue and orange in colour.

The other thing you must do, is to make sure you have your firewall configured to allow Hyperlobby to launch, as well as allowing the IL-2 game to launch. Normally the firewall will ask you for permission, but sometimes it will lock up, so if you want to be sure, go into the firewall, and add IL-2 and Hyperlobby as permitted programs and servers.

Most people online communicate using microphones and a voice comm system. Teamspeak is the most popular.

TeamSpeak can be downloaded here:

http://www.goteamspeak.com/?page=downloads

Once you have installed TeamSpeak, you need to create a new server to connect. Under ADDRESSBOOK, You put your mouse arrow on the 'Server' heading, and right click, slide down to 'Add Server', and left click on it. It will create a new box for the name of the server.

For example, RAF74's:

You write in RAF74

Then under 'Server Address' you enter:

209.11.246.179:8767

Then you put your nickname in: Warrior?

You connect as an anonymous user.

The Server password is: tiger

When you have finished putting that in, you double click on the Server name on the left, and you will connect.

You should see yourself appear in the upper box under 'RAF74 General Room'.

<<<

Many people are now using the 'Mods' online. These are some programs which modify the basic IL-2 1946 to allow flying of the AI planes, as well as providing new planes and new maps.

To get the mods, you goggle 'All Aircraft Arcade'

You will then need to register with the forum, then download the "AAA Unified Installer Version 1.1", (8 downloads)

Then make a backup of your IL-2 STURMOVIK 1946 folder, rename it 'Mods', then install the AAA mods to it.

In the main folder you then have a version switcher which allows you to pick either plain 4.08, plain 4.09, or modded versions of these, with or without six degrees of freedom Track IR.

You then need to re-point Hyperlobby at this new install, at the same time you can change your name using the following instructions:

>>>

Logon to HL then type //deleteaccount into the chat bar. Then logon with your new name and password and follow the instruction. That changes your name but keeps all your settings, friends list, etc. intact

To change the path to the executable game file, disconnect from hyperlobby, then press ctrl and shift, then left click on 'connect' and the dialog box will come up. Click on game .exe, and note properties address, then point to the il2fb.exe in your new modded install.

<<<

Hope this will get you up and running.

If you are looking for more help, and a Squadron to join, think about RAF74.

Cheers RAF74 Buzzsaw

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif Try and select the 'Forgotten Battles' room in Hyperlobby, not the 'IL2 Sturmovik' one.

(Online can be quite a lot of fun)

I strongly suspect the problem exists between chair and keyboard...
