Well, there is this thread here:


but you might still have some head scratching to do. Just ask, if you still have questions after wading through all that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

One important thing you'll have to do, if you want to run it on Hyperlobby, is to rename il2server.exe to il2fb.exe, or HL will never find it. Also a good idea, but not essential, to create a separate HL account just for the DS. Set the HL path to the renamed dedicated server il2fb.exe, and run a dogfight server through HL just as you normally would.

so I take it im supposed to install the 2.04 thing, then patch it all the way to 4.08?

There is a torrent available, by Patches30, of a complete 4.08 server image. You may have to request xCav8r that it be reseeded. The thread is here:

Also, at Mission4Today, there is a multipart archive download of a complete 4.08 server, as well as all the bits and pieces from 2.04 to 4.08. It is found here:

As Dbillo mentioned you must rename il2server.exe to il2fb.exe.Also create a new name that you want the server to show as.The server shows up as your login name.

If anyone can help setup FBD2 I would appreciate it.. its confusing me. The server though is running just fine in HL.

I can help you with the basics of that. I'm using fbdaemon although not the stats stuff. I also have a guide in html format written by a fellow named Fresian.

FYI there is an FBD forum where you can post for help as well:

Fresian's FBDaemon and Dedicated Server Setup Guide is still online, at Fresian's own website:
