View Full Version : Game won't run after 3.01m patch

11-21-2004, 02:40 AM

I had FP+AEP+2.01+2.04+PF, everything was ok.

Installed 3.01m patch + 3.01_new.

Now game won't run (with old and new exe alike). Loading stops on 95%. New exe reach these 95% faster, but stops the same.

Graphic details in il2setup - at default
video card - ATI radeon 9800 pro, Catalyst 4.11
WinXP SP2.

Anybody has this problem? What should I do?

Did you install a NOCD? Did you replace the RTS.dll?
If yes then install the old one, it is on the second cd from PF, and try again.

Re-install FP+AEP+PF without any patches then install patches 3.01m and 3.01_new. You do not need the old patches anymore, my set up works perfectly in this way. You will need PF CD 2 to fire up the game..

No, i have standart russian FB, AEP and PF. No alterations.

why I don't need the pathches now? These patches contain a lot of aircrafts. Does PF have all these aircrafts from 100M patch 2.01? I think not.

I counted the number of aircraft with 2.01 pre PF and without 2.01 post PF and the number was the same. If you are worried about losing any just copy the folder but as far as I can see they are all still there. I asked the very same question in this forum and was advised that the old patches were no longer required!

GT, thanks for the info. I'll try reinstalling today.

Reinstalled everything. No luck.

I uninstalled all IL2 and deleted it's folder. Reinstalled FB, AEP and PF. PF (3.0) runs ok again.

Installed 3.01m patch - game won't run http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif((
Game loading stops at 95%.

Something is wrong with the patch http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

in THIS variant I have no problems either. But when I add 3.01m - game over.

Are you using a non-default rts.dll file? If so, don't, il2fb_new.exe will only work with default rts.dll!

No, I have standard unaltered clean installation. Reinstalled everything just yesterday.

Did you try downloading the patch from another place maybe the one you have is corrupt...

Agreed. Everything works till you have the 3.01m patch in, that should tell you something http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Re-download the patch and install it right over what you have.
