You need to download a client called hyperlobby from here:


And all the Patches....are you playing with FB/AEP/PF merged install?

Hyperlobby will tell you right away if you don't have the up-to-date version; you won't be able to join any games.

There are generally three kinds of games usually going on. "open" dogfight servers, where you pretty much fly anything you want to, divided into two teams. Essentially just flying around and shooting at anyone that isn't on your team.

Then there's the more realistic "structured scenario" servers, where there is a limited aircraft list for each side, and specific goals to be accomplished.

Finally, the CO-OP mode, where a mission has been created that you can join, usually on either side. There will be quantities of AI aircraft in these, depending on who wrote the mission.

Watch your six and have fun!

Before you try to fly online I recommend that you get ForgottenBattles and The Aces Expansion Pack and merge the install. There arent a lot of PF standalone servers on Hyperlobby.... The merged install is the way to go. Go here (http://www.airwarfare.com/) to see a picture of the box so you will know what to get. The Aces GOLD is FB + the As expansion pack.. in one box. Otherwise you will have to get them seperately.... Aces sells for $10 & FB is $20 at Comp USA. After you get them install FB+AEP+PF+patch3.03m+patch4.01m.

Bearcat's right, the price of FB/AEP/PF is definitely worth it.
