Hi,

Can someone give me the link to where it tells you how to put water to 3? I've looked around this forum and can't find it, probably skipping too fast.

Would i be able to run water = 3 smoothly with AMD athlon 64 bit 3000 venice, 1GB RAM, GeForce 6800GT? I never new you could change the settings apart from in game which are on excellent.

Go to:C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\conf

scroll down toward the bottom where you will see this line:

VideoSetupId=17
Water=1
Effects=2
ForceShaders1x=0
PolygonOffsetFactor=-0.15
PolygonOffsetUnits=-3.0
tUnits=-3.0
Units=-3.0

Set the water to 3 and save the file. I am running perfect with water 1 and it looks good but with 3 it looks great. Try it and see how you like it. I have a XP3200 on a GF6800GT256.. and I felt the trade off in frames... especially in PF maps with lots of ship flak.. wasnt worth the white caps.... since you have abetter processor you might not see the same thing.

Here (http://www.airwarfare.com/guides/config_guide.htm) is a complete guide to the conf. setup on Airwarfare.Com.

You can also DL IL2 Manager from the Essentials Thread and do it that way. That is actually easier because it gives you a GUI to use.. but it is good to know the oldfashioned way as well.

you can't find the "conf.ini" file or you can't find the "Water=" entry???

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

1.Open "My Computer"

2.Find IL-2 Forgotten Battles folder, it is usually located in Program Files on C: disk like Bearcat mentiones:

C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\conf.ini

3.Type that path in your windows explorer bar and hit enter. If you have installed it in default location (above), your explorer will open conf.ini file.

If it does follow Bearcat's instructions from that point on.
------------------------------

However if you still can't find it; press START (windows button on keyboard) on the bottom left part of the screen http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif --

1. START > SEARCH > FOR FILES AND FOLDERS > ALL FILES AND FOLDERS

2. Under "All or part of the file name" type conf.ini and hit enter

3. You will see the results on the window to the right. Open conf.ini (double click on it) and follow Bearcat's instructions above.
------------------------------

And remember your game path just in case you need to visit it in the future, for example to add custom skins/missions to the game.

I think he means he can't find the water = option.

I remember I had to add mine manually for some reason :S

DOn't worry mate. I was a dumbo as well trying to figure it out. You will smack yourself in the head when you see how easy it is.

Now just click on this link
http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/26310365/m/9841072643/p/2

It will take you to a post where i asked the very same question and it has pictures of what the file looks like and where abouts in the file you have to change it. This is absolutely fool proof.

Let us know if you get stuck

You have to exit the game in order to change water to water=3!

You have to browse the files on your computer: Right-click on the 'START' symbol on the bottom left of your windows screen, then left-click on 'Browse'. Scroll down to either 'programs' or 'program files' (quite a way down the list, these may occur a couple of times in the list so try until you find the one that contains a file caled 'Ubi Soft'). Left-click on this and then left-click on Forgotton Battles (or Pacific Fighters if you've got this instead). Then follow the instructions in this link:

Set the water to 3 by putting the cursor on it and deleting the13 and replacing it with 3 or whatever.... and save the file. I am running perfect with water 1 and it looks good but with 3 it looks great. Try it and see how you like it. I have a XP3200 on a GF6800GT256.. and I felt the trade off in frames... especially in PF maps with lots of ship flak.. wasnt worth the white caps.... since you have abetter processor you might not see the same thing.

You can also DL IL2 Manager from the Essentials Thread and do it that way. That is actually easier because it gives you a GUI to use.. but it is good to know the oldfashioned way as well.
