Ok, just bought Luft46 and I have to ask this stupid question.

How do I install it?

Do I delete my FB + AEP + PF game and install the Luft46 pack or do I just insert the CD and do as follows?

Sorry for making this dumb topic... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

what's luft46? Do you mean Il2Sturmovik:1946?

If so, you don;t need to delete anything. Il2:1946 installs to a different folder than your previous install

config.ini

In that it has all your settings in it.. You may need it later to get you clean install to acked like your old install

Ok, thanks. I'll find this file in the main IL-2 section I assume? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

In addition to saving your conf.ini, you may wish to save your Mission and Paint Scheme folders if you have any custom missions or AC skins you wish to save or transfer to IL-2 1946 installation. These file and folders are found in your Program Files/UbiSoft/IL-2 Forgotten Battles folder.

<span class="ev_code_RED">WARNING!</span>
Delete your Users folder within "IL-2 Sturmovik 46" and import (paste) your configured one from "FB+AEP+PF".
Doing so, you can import your campaigns too! So you don't have to re-play them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Just go into appropriate folders (Missions/Campaigns/...) and copy/paste them into "46".

Also nice thing would be to save your old conf.ini within main game folder as this one also carries info about your settings (graphics, net etc.)
Optionally, as Warhawk said, you can import PaintSchemes folder too, so you don't lose your favourite paint schemes.

PS: Before you do anything, you may want to back up appropriate folders first, so there is no room for unpleasant surprises afterwards.
