If you get it get the whole nine yards.... FB GOLD and PF.. install the merged version. The sim is great.

As a recent convert to the world of IL2 from the CFS series all I can say is:

WHOOOOOT!!! Should have been here years ago. Gold + PF definate way to go.

I think it is the best patch of the whole IL-2/FB/AEP/PF series up to now. The FM "feels" realistic now, visibility is good even on "excellent" settings and and engine management need more care now. There are only a few flaws left (landing gear tearing off on D3A and Ju 87 over 400km/h etc.)

PF with a merged install is excellent, you get the most comprehensive and detailed WW2 flight sim to date.

Can't really comment about PF as a standalone product.

I`m only speaking for the merged PF version.

v3.00 6/10
v3.01 8/10

Make the dots visible even more and it`ll be 9/10 heheh

Also bare in mind I only play online.

11-19-2004, 09:50 AM

Pacific Fighters can be installed as a stand alone game - or as an add-on to Forgotten Battles + Aces Expansion Pack.
The Gold pack the guys are referring to contains both Forgotten Battles and the Aces Expansion for one low price http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Merged version is Pacific Fighters installed over this Gold Pack.

with the Merge you will have ~180 flyable aircraft from many theatres to mess with - everything from Polikarpov I-16s to Corsairs - super sweet.

It goes like this. Il2 FB then AEP(expansion Pack) then PF. You can fly pf as a stand alone or if you get the gold pack IL2FB+AEP and install PF into it, then you get the merged game. Huge,Huge amount of flyables and everything. too much to explain ATM. Best way to go IMHO.

oh and 3.01m Patch, Fantabulous http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Hopefully you are single and have a fat bank account.
If you fall in love with this series as have many than you will be spending money on things like a couger hotas or a ch hotas. Than the trakir, computer upgrades and so on.
All fun aside if you enjoy flight sims than you will love this one.
The learning curve is steep and once you get online you will fly against some really good virtual pilots. Lots of people have been flying this sim every day for the last three years and it shows.
The community is great and very helpful in spite of some the goofy posts you see on these boards.
If you have any questions never hesitate to ask.

Jusy buy it. It really is that good and the support from the maker (Oleg) is way above anything I have seen anywhere else.

Buy it. You won't regret it.


11-19-2004, 01:51 PM
Ok, gentlemen, I already have IL2FB but not the expansion pack...should I buy the expansion pack first and then PF? Thanks!

11-19-2004, 02:08 PM
IMO, PF first.

11-19-2004, 02:36 PM
This flight sim in all its incarnations is a beautiful, beautiful product. Correction: not a product, a lifestyle. BUy it. Learn it. Have fun.

11-19-2004, 02:38 PM
Get AEP first, install that, add patches 2.01 and 2.04 and then add PF to that........ I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif
