View Full Version : PF Multiplayer

How many people only have the standalone version of PF and play it online?

I've only just got the game, and want to be able to play it online, so are there still servers playing only the standalone version or would it be a better idea to fork out 10 quid http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif for IL2 : Forgotten Battles for PF to act as an elobrate expansion.

Honestly it's worth it to get IL2: FB/ACE no doubt about that.

do ubi have standalone PF servers?

I wouldn't know if Ubi has some...

But, like Heavy_Metal said... go get the rest, go get merged.

- Note:
The rest meaning not only FB, but also AEP (The Ace Expansion pack, not to be mixed up with the 'Aces Campaigns' addon!).

Or go for an FB Gold pack, which is FB+AEP.

Or wait a bit untill the 'Air Combat Collection' gets out, which is the whole lot... FB+AEP+PF+Patches on a DVD...

(Go with the flow... more fun!)

I believe that Ubi Soft's public server and Hyperlobby both support the stand-alone Pacfific Fighters ... however, very few onliners have stayed at standalone PF because most of the action has been with the FB+AEP+PF merge. Kind of a viscious cycle, isn't it? We tell you to get FB+AEP as well, and then you're playing online, and then somebody else comes here and asks if anybody is playing 'standalone version' of PF online, so you tell them to get FB+AEP and join the rest of the community ...

There are a few guys here who have been looking for FB+AEP without luck so maybe you could talk them into meeting you at hyperlobby or on ubi.com on a particular night at a particular time. A little coordination might increase your odds of finding a good sized group of players to join with.

HyperLobby (http://hyperfighter.sk/) has 21 players on Pacific Fighters at this moment. I believe that means the stand-alone version of the game; the "Forgotten Battles" area probably includes the merged variation of PF. HyperLobby is free to use.

thanks for the replies, at the moment I can only find FB to buy at shops/online so I'll be on the lookout

no problem, you will need the UNMERGED patches for PF to play online BTW they WILL NOT finish with M ie 4.03 NOT 4.03M if that makes sense

hey ubi and hyperlobby both have pf standalone servers just not alot of people and if you play on ubi it might say 110 people in pacific fighters but look down it also says same number for forgotten battles so when you click to play pacific fighters it will bring up il2 original,then forgotten battles, then aces expansion pack and forgotten battles,then fb/ace/pf and then pf at the end of the list
i've only been using ubi for a couple of days and there seemd to be more people on pacific fighters there than hyperlobby also ok thats all i got

Hmm well I have PF alone too as IL2 doesnâ´t count,
but hope to merge yet as FB and AEB are offered at e-bay
