you know you can do both right? know that you have FB and AEP installed insert the PF disk one and it will give you the option to install PF into the FB+AEP

yeah i know that much, but im wondering i if theres an advantage to doing the stand alone or the addon install

If you have the GOLD pack then just do a add on install. You wont be sorry.

If you install it as an addon, just make sure you make a copy of your original FBAEP first, alot of people are complaining that it slows FB down when installed as an addon.

The advantage is in FMB. I have a stand-alone install just for creating missions for PF because AEP has SO MANY OBJECTS cluttering up the place http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah, i got the forgotten battles, gold pack (the 3 cd case).

but i mean does it add things to PF or IL2 that wont be there normally if i do a seperate install or is it just for the sake keeping it all in ole lump folder?

still a 'lil confused about it. Thanks for the replies tho, i totaly appreciate it

If you Install PF Standalone you will only get Pacific Front AC If you install PF into FB/AEP then you have all of the AC available. Depending on who made the mission & what AC he selected etc...etc...

personally, i like having seperate installs... Different appearances in GUI, info in japanese not german and if my install screws up on one game i can play the other http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.... eventually i will have three installs on my system i think.. i got the room.
The only problem with seperate install i can see is that most folks on hyperlobby use combined?
