View Full Version : Pacific Fighters-Which way to install?

07-07-2005, 03:27 PM
I have IL2 FB/AEP (Gold Pack) installed on my
computer. Also have installed the patchs for this for this combination. Everything working
fine. Shortly will be purchasing PF. Given the choice what is the best way to install PF. Merge
FB/AEP or install as a stand alone. All my computer software is new and would not have any
trouble handling any set up. If there is a link
to this discussion I would be thankful if it was provided. Since I have the choice now I want to make the right decision. Lowell

oldest to newest game release, then patch only PF to 4.01M

looking for a squad?

Install it as a merged sim. Uninstall FB & AEP... then re-install FB+AEP+PF+patch 3.03m+patch4.01m and you will be straight. Dont worry about any skins or missions.. they will still be there.. at least mine were when I did that.

Forget about the PF stand alone install.. it is a waste of hard drive space. You will get more out of the sim by going merged. Also hit the Sturmovik Essentials link in my sig. Book mark it. It will save a lot of space on your favorites menu. Check out IL2 Manager, IL2 Stab and Uberdemon's UQMG in particular... the links to Hyperlobby and teamspeak are there as well.

Thank you for offering the link to airwarfare.
It looks like a great site and I'll be logging
on frequently. I would like to stay at the ubi
site for downloading the patchs but I am not sure which 3.03 patch I should use, #1 100.2 MB,
or #2 18.8 MB. I have ordered PF and it hasn't
arrived yet. It will be new in the box. Are there different versions? Just getting ready
to install the games and the correct patchs. Lowell
