Hi everyone,

I've been playing IL-2: 1946 for a little while now and am interested in playing online. So what is the procedure. Do I need any particular mods or patches?

Thanks.

Hello and welcome.
If you want to fly online, the best thing for you to do is download Hyperlobby.
http://hyperfighter.sk/
Also make sure you are patched to the latest version of 4.09 (it is free) as most servers are running this.
After that, you should have no trouble getting online.

I've actually been an Il-2 player for sometime. Just stayed away from online for some reason.

Shall we try to predict the title of your upcoming posts? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I mean in a friendly way. This would give a few hints on what you can expect, but maybe you already know all the strengths and weaknesses of online play from reading a few posts here and there?

Yes, half the IL2 online comunity are all flying spits and La-7's, and they stay on the deck, so keep your alltitude up and speed up, and zoom-climb a lot, and you will get just about every dipstick online that way.

Whatch out for J2M5 and Ta-152's though.



So expect to be shot down right away if you don't folow the advice given above.

Good luck, and may the force be with you!

For starters, stay with the official version and patches of the sim supplied by the manufacturer and it's website or linked from it's official websiite.

As installed it is version 4.07m, if you throw the official 4.08m and 4.09m patches on top of that installation then you will be able to fly on a lot of servers that show up on the Hyperlobby game tracking software.

There are a lot of third-party patches and add-ons for this flight sim, enough to make trying to figure out which one you need to fly where is confusing, that is why for start you are safe to stay with the official version.

Once you get the hang of flying online and make friends to fly with, you can experiment with third party software and patches which are called "mods"(slang).

Good luck!

Ummmmm not necessarily........

There are mods available for this sim. There are two major mod packs available and both come with a very flexible mechanism for enabling or disabling mods and to tell the truth both are good.. very good. I highly reccomend that you either try UltraPack or HSFX 4.0. I can't give you a direct link but Google is your friend. I use UltraPack 1.8 at the moment.

Well I played online for the first time today. I actually got a few BnZ kills flying the Tempest. I think it has replaced the D9 as my favorite aircraft. Four 20mm cannons and great visibility is just too much to pass up. I also found out just how dangerous well-piloted Ki-84's can be. Had my wings blown off on a few occasions by their cannons.
