You have to buy "Il-2 1946", it includes all previous installments of the game (original Il-2+Forgotten Battles+Ace expansion+Pacific fighters) as well as new stuff, then upgrade to version 4.08 via patch.

Welcome back, Voranni

You will need to get IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, which is thev latest version on sale. It may be possible to buy a download, but everyone seems to have less trouble buying the DVD version. To get up to the latest standard, you will then need to patch to 4.08, then 4.09m, See Bearcat's 'Nugget's Guide' (sticky'd at the top of this forum) for further details.

THe DVD should be on sale for as little as $10 or so in the US, though you may pay a bit more elsewhere. If you are using Vista or Windows 7 it is inadviseable to install it in the 'program files' folder, but otherwise usually fairly straightforward.

Make sure your PC will support it. Any resonably new desktop PC should be fine, but not all laptop graphics cards are compatable.

If you are unsure wheether your PC is suitable, let us know what it's specs are.

I should be able to get it in the mail to you today Voranni. It is being sent from Canada so may take a good week to get to you.

Just in time for Christmas! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Once you have installed the DVD that will bring you up to version 4.07m. Then you will need two more patches to bring you up to date.

You can get 4.08m here: http://www.gamershell.com/download_17669.shtml

And 4.09m here:

Yay Jim. Nicely done, sir.

Thank you FSP. It seemed like a waste to just leave it sitting in a drawer while Voranni was in need of a copy.

A super and very wonderful thing to do.

You get on Santa's list for that one........

12-16-2009, 02:04 PM
Now THAT was a downright neighborly thing to do.
Tip of the hat to ya, blairgowrie.

Hey Blairgowrie,

Happy New Year, from a fellow Canuck in Canukistan! Do you still have a spare IL2146 dvd? If so I'd love to purchase it from you. My gaming rig & dvd is in PEI, & I am working in Burlington, Ontario. I'd like to set up a new computer & fly here in Ontario.

Take care & fly safe

Welcome back... if my memory serves me correctly the last time you were around here was shortly after PF right..? Any other questions hit the Nugget's Guide in my sig... I know you arent a Nugget.. but there is lost of info in there.

Thank you all for the support and the kindness, this is the main reason i missed being here. As soon as i get my computer fixed i wil be up and flying again, not online but i will atleast be able to get used to the game again lol.

Take care and happy hunting to all.
