3.03m is for the merged install - that's Forgotten Battles + Aces Expansion + Pacific Fighters.
If you have only Pacific Fighters installed you will need the 3.03 stand alone patch.

Have a look in your Ubi folders for the game directory - most likely named IL2FB (for the merged game) or PF (stand alone).
If still not sure look for the game executables - il2fb.exe (merged) or pf.exe (stand alone).
Once you have identified the game directory (the one with the appropriate exe) apply the patch to that directory - it will update all the sub directories automatically.

Cheers

Thanks for the detailed replay.

I have the merged install not stand alone but i have a IL2FB, AEP and a PF folder so i wasn't sure which one to use.

Do you use a desktop icon or other shortcut to launch the game? Right click on it and select the "properties" menu item - the il2fb.exe file path should be displayed in the 'Target' field.

Wherever that exe is is where you must apply the patch.

What do you have in the AEP and PF directories?

I use an icon on the desktop to launch the game. It is called FB+AEP+PF i think. Anyway i'll check the .exe location when i get home tonight.

Thanks for your help.
