Can you say what is your game version when you install it?
That number in the right lower corner of the loading screen.

For instance newest game version is V4.08.

The order is

PF (merge into FB+AEP)
Patch until latest. Patches are intstalled into the game directory, starting with the earliest 3.xx series and going to 4.04m

However, you should save yourself the trouble and purchase IL-2 1946. It's a separate install that contains FB+AEP+PF, as well as Sturmoviks over Manchuria and PE-2 Peshka.

Just about everyone runs 4.08m these days.

If you realy want to get up to date then it would be worth biting the bullet and getting

then all you need is 4.08m

Welcome back. There are paid add-ons as well as patches after PF. The easiest way to go now is by buying 'IL-2 Sturmovik 1946' and then applying the one patch we've had for that so far.

The 'Nuggets' thread stickied at the top of this forum explains it in more detail.

Get 46.... period. Hit the Nugget's Guide in my sig and read Why buy IL2 1946.

Yeah unfortunately my bank account tells me buyin 1946 aint an option at moment lol so ill struggle through with FB n PF

If I recall correctly, you install FB, then Aces Expansion, then PF. After that patch to your preferred level. I hope you like offline play though because it will be very hard to find an online server at the older versions.

You can find 1946 for sale online for just 15 pounds sterling, maybe less.

offlines fine with me, I'd love to have 15 quid spare lol payin for a house on your own aint as easy as it used to be lol

Welcome back! I do believe you can go all the way up to 4.04m with what you have. Install FB, the Aces, then PF and then patch all the way up to 4.04m. There used to be a some place to go on the net to see all the patches and DL them.
Where is that?? I forgot, sorry.

10-13-2007, 06:30 PM
Here it is, go here:
( I have partially edited this due to erroneous info, my bad )!!
4.04m is as far as you can go currently without paying. 4.05m is a paid add-on featuring flyable PE-2s and a few other aircraft. And in any case, once you do have some money, it would behoove you to bypass the PE-2 Peshka version entirely and buy the '46 version.

Sorry!! PF is 3.00m if merged with FB and AEP!!
You must install:

Unfortunately, you must do all these patches one at a time. They did not have any other way of doing it. And do make sure you DL and install only the ones with the "m" suffix!!
The plain ones will cause grief with a merged install!!!

Here's a link to what is called the Megapatch (ftp://ftp.ubi.com/de/pacificfighters/PFm_Megapatch.zip).

From 3.00 merged to 4.04m in one big file!
