your next update is to buy Pacific Fighters, this can be installed as a standalone game or merged with your gold pack, this then gives you Carriers..Pearl Harbour.. zeros.. A bunch of American junk, Corsairs, Hellcats etc... Seafires etc it is what AEP was to FB http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Look around it should be cheap now http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif you will get sliding canopies on some hooks to catch the cables folding wings etc http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

only then will you be able to download all these new patches you see, there are 2 at present that go over pacific fighters.... with a third on the horizon with the mossie, DO335, and tempest included.....

I think you must be running the game in direct X and not open GL, you need to have the game running open GL to be able to ungrey the perfect window http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif you can do it in the same windows that you saw it greyed out or go into setup and do it there ( windows start all programs ubisoft last window click on setup)

Fb and AEP are no longer supported.All new patches,maps and fixes will be for the merged version or PF standalone.So if you want the new stuff you will need PF.

Perfect mode is in the landscaping pull down menu.You need to be running opengl,32 bit and stencil buffer on for that option to become available.

"So now i have to install PF over my gold pack and then get the patches right?"

Correct, It will also help if you decide to try flying online as 99% of all online games have all 3 versions merged ( FB AEP PF)

It is an enlightning experience flying against real live people, thicker than your average AI Aircraft Pilot.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

There are other tweaks you can add by altering the settings in the config file in the game folder, like increasing the water detail, (white peaks etc) you can also increase the amount of trees and even in the likes of the HE 111 gore where when shot, the external view covers the cockpit in blood.............. nice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
