ok odd i got my AEP to 2.4 but i dont see anything to go from 2.4-3.1 or 3.2. also i got my pf to 4.0 i think or is it 4.01?

anyways do i just install the 3.1m? then 3.2m then 3.2m-3.4m? didnt remember it was this hard to patch the game.

When you install PF as a merged version over AEP and FB no matter what AEP patches are installed it will take the merged version to 3.0 you then need to patch this

with this

http://www.3dgamers.com/dlselect/games/pacificfighters/pf_patch303m.exe.html

after that install

http://www.3dgamers.com/dlselect/games/pacificfighters/pf_patch401m.exe.html

and you will be up to 4.01 and the latest version

IF you also have PF as a standalone on your pc you want the NONE M Versions of the above patches, DO NOT GET THE SERVER VERSIONS OK, just the 2 mentioned, for all of the patches see

http://www.3dgamers.com/games/pacificfighters/downloads/

you can run both a merged version of the game ie FB AEP PF and a standalone PF version on your PC

ok problem found. pf i got from d2d site. its a pay for a game download it site and the games prepatched to 4.01 so i have AEP on cd and they dont mix together. and any patchs for pf i have to get though them even though they dont have a patch part on the site. unless somone can tell me another way to fix this it seems i need to get the cd for pf.

If you use the Find function in the Tech forum and type in "patch sequence" you'll get a lot of results. Here's a quick one "The correct patch sequence is: fb-aep-pf-303m-4.01m."

when you intially ran it to install did it offer to do a standalone of merged version? if it did you should be able to install it over AEP

If I did not get it wrong install order is

1.FB
2.AEP (that can be replaced with FB+AEP Gold Pack)
3.PF (3.00)
4.PF patch 3.03m
4.PF patch 3.04m
6.PF patch 4.01m

For stand alone PF, it is only with mentioned patches, without suffix "m" (merged).

thanks for the help guys. but no it didnt let me merged ver. it just asked me where i wanted it installed and installed it. no graphics in the back or nothing just a bar. i guess they dont install to the same dir. ? only other way to fix it. i have to buy the game for a 3rd time or just download it because i have payed for il2 one time fb 2 times and 2 times for pf. maddox has made alot of money off of me :O lucky i love the game so much. so till the download finishs i will be playing AEP 2.04 brushing up on my FR skills. i see war clouds and AFJ servers are still around. but thanks for the help.

yea the thing was i wanted to play NOW. so now because i didnt think it though i have to wait even longer. the download is going to take like 4days because everyone has this game so noone to get it from. just one guy -_- listen learned dont buy from http://www.direct2drive.com/ just other trusted sites that have been around. not downloading games to your hard drive from D2D = badly executed. but a good idea.

Post this in Community help forum... it may be registry problem also you may get help there if that is the case.
There are people with really strong registry kung-fu in Community Help forum. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Otherwise, I can only reccomend that you get yourself a CD next time. IMO it is far better than downloading whole game from internet site.
