View Full Version : Can I install Pacific Fighters and then IL2 Forgotten Battles?

If I understand correctly, IL2 Forgotten Battles and Pacific Fighters combine into one game. Can I first install Pacific Fighters and then Forgotten Battles, and still have them work together as one game?

So the answer is :

Nope, you can't.
All you can do in this order is having PF stand-alone and FB as a different game.
PF will ask you if you want to install it as a stand-alone version, or merged with FB.
PF Stand-alone is in one folder; FB installs automatically in another.

But since you didn't mention it, I gotta tell you that <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">you need AEP (Aces Expansion Pack) to be able to merge PF into FB</span>.

Here's the proper order for installing the whole merged thing :

Install FB
Install AEP
Install PF
Install patch pf_patch303m.exe (100MB)
Install patch pf_patch401m.exe (141MB)
Install patch pf_v402m.exe (31MB)
Install patch pf_patch403m.exe (155MB)
Install patch pf_patch404m.exe (21.8MB)

Also note that the patches are different for PF stand-alone and FB+AEP+PF merged.

Thanks for the response. I do have the Ace Expansion pack so I should be able to do this.

If you have both Pacific Fighters standalone and Pacific Fighters 'merged' on your harddrive, you can uninstall the standalone version without affecting the merged version. The two PF options are installed to separate locations on your harddrive and exist independantly of each other.

If you try to uninstall Pacific Fighters 'merged' to remove it from FB+AEP you'll only uninstall the whole trilogy.

Does this clear up your question?
