Well I'd like to get few friends to play IL2, but it seems to be impossible.

Ubisoft has just stopped producing Ace's expansion packs (atleast they don't ship them to Europe anymore). They still sell IL2 FB and PF.

Also it was ridiculous that FB cost 10", PF 12" and AEP cost 25"!.

Damm you Ubisoft!

Hey! don't give up! I was in the same boat as you, but kept serching around town and online for about 3 months untill i found a copy! It was on an obscure website in the end, i posted the link here and i think they are now sold out or i'd include the link. Helps when searching online to include all the variations and mispellings of 'IL 2 sturmovik forgotten battles ace expanson pack' you can think of!

Good Luck!

Funny thing... I can buy AEP (there's 4-5 copies left in my store), FB and PF as well, but I wanted to buy IL-2 original (my IL-2 disk is unreadable). But I can't find any copies left... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I bought my AEP through Amazon just 2-3 months ago, no problems at all. I'm surprised to hear of it's scarcity. I wonder if retailers like Amazon are not allowing enough lead time in refilling their stock? <shrug>

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gifHi Kuna15,
try to look for some budget edition ( in DVD case-without printed manual ) of original IL2 - I have seen ( not long ) ago such one edition in Techo-max in King-Cross shopping center in Jankomir.First representative for UBI was "Algoritam" but they lost their licence last year, and now UBI is represented by "Video ToP". Try to contact them - they helped me with informations about PF when I was looking around stores in vain last year.

I don't think we have "Big Bytes" here... anyway thanks Tully.
In any case I will search few more stores perhaps I will be more lucky.
