View Full Version : Help....Patch 4.01m/F4F

07-20-2005, 10:41 AM
I recentely had to reload IL-2. I deleted all files and started fresh. Reloaded the game, all five discs. When I installed 4.01m patch I can no longer fly the F4F. All I get is a black ocean and blue sky. The f4f cockpit has disapeared. I downloaded the patchs from the PF fighters website and I didn't have a problem until I install 4.01m. I used the merged install because I'm fly FB+AE+PF. I don't know whats goin on? I'm sure it's something simple but I can't seem to find it. Thanks, MudMarine

You've used an incorrect patch or missed a patch.

Correct sequence is:

Install Forgotten Battles
Install Ace Expansion Pack
Install Pacific Fighters
Patch to 3.03m using patch file pf_patch303m.exe
Patch to 4.01m using patch file pf_patch401m.exe

If you miss the 3.03 patch, or use the 56MB 3.01->3.03 patch instead of the 100MB 3.0 -> 3.03 without using the 3.01 patch, you'll having missing cockpits on several aircraft.

Also make sure you have the "m" patches for the merged version, not the patches without the "m" for the standalone.

Thanks. I can't use the 3.03 patch because it gives a file not found error from the server. I used 3.01 to 3.30m and then 3.03 to 3.04m. All is fine until I patch with 4.01m then no f4f cockpits. I'll try it once again. MudMarine

Get them from 3DGamers (http://www.3dgamers.com/games/pacificfighters/downloads/), they're much more reliable and usually faster downloads.
