Hi guys, still cant do multiplayer.

I have downloaded HyperLobby's Hyperfighter software and it doesn't list Pacific Fighters in the game list. It only wants to look for the IL-2 game which i dont have.

How on earth am i suppost to player multiplayer? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

That answer has the potential to be misleading. AEP is not like PF. PF can stand alone, AEP cannot. Thus, before, when you asked for assistance in chat when you got AEP, the "no server for AEP" issue wasn't really there, because the assumption is you indeed have Forgotten Battles (because naturally, AEP won't work without it), and HyperLobby DOES SUPPORT Forgotten Battles, so there's no issue there, unlike the issue that arises with a standalone like PF.

Thank you.

Does that mean that with my standalone version of PF installed, i cant play online?

You can, but only with other people using the same PF stand alone installation.

You can, but only with people who are running PF-ONLY SERVERS. Currently, HyperLobbys DOES NOT support PF-ONLY SERVERS. The only solution I can think of at the moment is for PF-only players who wish to play online is to post their intents on PF bulletin boards announcing that they want to join a PF only server, and hopefully, those who want to HOST a PF only server can see such a request and invite the guy in. Crude, but I don't see any other way at the moment, until a new version of HyperLobby that supports PF-only games is available.

sorry to be on a ranting behaviour recently but frankly, it's another reason why this shouldn't have gotten the label 'stand-alone' but instead only 'add-on' and be priced accordingly...

I mean really, what's the difference in sense of content between AEP and PF ? I don't see any MAJOR difference except MAYBE the carrier mechanism.

I've been playing stand alone PF games the last couple nights on the ubi game server.

You can play with the standalone in Hyperlobby with other standalone players.

You must rename your pf.exe to il2fb.exe.Then redirect Hyperlobby to the new il2fb.exe.

Just remember that standalone can only play with standalone.

Also many servers that do the PF standalone in HL label them as such and vice versa. Dont knock 1C or Ubi for HL not having other rooms yet. Dont knock them saying they misrepresented things when in fact PF standalone does work, its just that most of us have been with this series from the beginning, or saw the advantages and numbers that were going to be doing FB Aep+PF and got the gold pack. Its not 1c or Ubi's fault that people like thier product and few run a standalone version.

It's a problem because it makes it hard for new players to get into multi. They end up having to go buy 2 games to play 1. It also fragments the online players. Both groups depending on how they installed the game end up with less players.

PF should have been either stand alone title OR an addon, not both.

Ok guys before this thread goes sour, i am using the UBI software in the standalone rooms and getting on fine.

Thanks for all your help and little debates http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

"The client is incompatible with the server."
