After watching Dogfights on the history channel, i kinda want to reinstall my Il2. I have FB+AEP+PF. I never got into it because i didn't have a trackir (and we all know how important that is), and didn't have a good comp, and it didn't really fully support widescreen(of course you can edit it but like the menu screen had black bars). Anyway...now that i got a trackir4, and my new laptop, could anyone first tell me what is the latest patch for my version, and second, what is the recommended graphics setting. Specs are in my sig but just in case its too small: E1705, core 2 duo (2.16 ghz), 2 gig ram, and 7900. Thanks in advance.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It's is recommended to do a merged install (installing the games over each other).

After that you can download this megapatch which will take to version 4.04m. Which is the latest free version. To go to 4.05 or 4.07 you need to buy addons or the new IL2-46 edition.

Megapatch

You should be able to set all graphics settings to the max. Using the OpenGl is recommended since the highest settings only work with OpenGl and not with DX.

cool what about water or effects setting, something about 3 or whatever. What should i set it as?

AS for the mega patch, very cool. I remember the old one had a lot of patches to go through, so all i have to do is install FB+AEP+Pf and then the patch, that's it? Then go to 4.05 as the addon and later 4.07 the next addon thats soon to come out, what ever happen to 4.06?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

As for the water settings:

You can get 4.05 (PE-2) as a download. In the Ubistore http://shop.<b style="color:black;background-color:#a0ffff">ubi[/b].com/Cat_Browse.asp?id=16&cat=Download, (http://shop.ubi.com/Cat_Browse.asp?id=16&cat=Download,) 4.06 and 4.07 shall be available as a download soon too.

But it is recommended (unless you have a reason to avoid a DVD release) to get the IL2-46 edition. Which contains FB+AEP+PF+4.05 (PE-2)+4.06(Manchuria)+4.07(46).

It is not available in the US right now (afaik no release date yet) but you can order (import) it here:
http://www.gogamer.com/PC-Simulations_stcVVcatId444808VVviewcat.htm

Or in any other store which delivers to the US.

It will be available in Europe as of 15.12, in some countries it is already available.
