Tommorrow during lunch I'm going to the computer store to double my RAM. Then when I get home I'm going to install it and Forgotten Battles.

I've been reading the manual. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif Hopefully I won't ask (too many) questions that can be found there, unlike when I got IL-2. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

But I do have a few questions. I'm 2/3 of the way through my fighter pilot campagin and 1/3 of the way through my bomber pilot campagin in IL-2.

1. Can I transfer these campagins and downloaded IL-2 campagins to FB?
2. Can I transfer the single missions from IL-2 and downloaded IL-2 missions to FB?
3. Skins in FB are 1024X1024. Will IL-2 512X512 skins work in FB?
4. During online play it seems that 1024 skins might cause my ping to be higher. Is it recommended to use 512 skins in online play?

I hope these questions aren't 2-st00pid.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know the answers to most of the questions, but I think 512*512 skins can be used, and will preferrably be used online. But the best IMO would be to disable skin download. Many hosts do that, and hope that the patch will make the skin download smoother. Anyway since I disabled skin download I think there is much less stutter (read none).

I don't think you can transfer the campaign, but the missions yes. However I'm not an expert in those things... so you better get some other opinion.

Yes to the missions, but I'm not sure about the campaign progress files in your pilot folders. You may have to start the campaigns over. You'll also find that the revised flight models alter the balance of many of the missions.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes, although it wont matter so much if the other players on the same server already have the same skins on their hdd.

I expect the flight models to differ. I guess my real question was the campagin(s) and the pilot progress folders. Of course I could keep IL-2 on the HD, but I was hoping I wouldn't have to switch between the two if I wanted to continue the IL-2 pilot careers.
