View Full Version : Been Away a While -- Some Questions Please!!!

10-06-2009, 06:25 PM
Howdy Guys -- well I have been away from IL2/1946 for a couple of years -- and yep, I bet a lot has transpired over that time. A couple of questions to get me going here since I want to get a dedicated dogfight server back up and running ---

1. Does UBI still have a central server for servers to log into for public play?? If not, what is being used nowadays??

2. I have rev. 4.08m on my system -- pure stock, no mods. Does 4.09m upgrade OK, or are many still running 4.08m for online play???

Any help or other comments that would help me catch up would be greatly appreicated.

Many Thanks -- GnG http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

As far as servers for online flying are concerned, most people use Hyperlobby. Google it and download it.
As far as 4.09, it was in a beta for years and was just officially released a few days ago.
I imagine that most if not all servers will switch to this if they haven't already. At this point, there is no good reason for servers to stick with 4.08.

I guess the comments about UBI's server show how far back I go with the first days of IL2 -- it has been so fun and I enjoy making maps for online use. I will get Hyperlobby going so thanks for that pointer too.

Hope to see ya in the air online some day --
