README
Pacific Fighters v.3.02b (3.02bm)


Warning

Current version is the public test version only for experienced in beta test players. The main purpose of this patch to get response for the new method of running the game. This method we plan to use for dedicated servers for 64 -128 players.


The current version 3.02b (3.02bm) is not compatible with the previous versions of the game when playing via network. Both the server and client must have appropriate versions of the game in order to connect.

For your convenience we€ve introduced different version numbers for the stand-alone installation and the joint FB+AEP+PF install.
3.02b €" for stand alone PF
3.02bm €" for FB+AEP+PF
And of course, the versions 3.02b and 3.02bm are not compatible with each other playing via network.

Notes on the Patch Installation

This 3.02b patch may be installed over the previous 3.01 version. The 3.02bm version can only be installed over the merged PF 3.01m install.

To install the patch, run

1) PF_patch302b_common.exe . Please pay great attention to the installation path name of the folder. This file is common for the both stand alone and merged versions. So you need to type manually the name of the folder where it will be installed.

2) PF_patch302b.exe (Or PF_patch302bm.exe (Standalone vs Merged) and follow the on-screen instructions.

In this version we ask the experienced players to test a new method of running the game again for final results. Both the old and the new methods are available at any time, and are fully compatible online.

If you want to test this new method, after install, run the pf_new.exe (il2fb_new.exe) executable in your PF game folder.

You can always run the game using the tried-and-true old method using the old shortcuts or pf.exe in the game folder. These remain unchanged. The new executable is not added to the start or the autorun menus in this version, but will be added there in the next patch/add-on if enough positive feedback is gathered.


Notice:

Main modifications and fixes

Damage model

Corrected P-40 engine damage model

3D models

More inaccuracies in cockpit gauges are corrected (however several cockpit changes with some levers will be available only in the next add-on due to big size).

FM and aircraft performance

1. Additional individual tuning of flight models and aircraft performance were made for the P-39s, P400, F4U, F6F and some other planes.


Other improvements:

1. Multiplay: Corrected on client side the ships damaged (will be other with add-on).
2. Parafrag bombs explosion changed to an instantaneous fuze.
3. Improved visibility of many ships.
4. Made new optimization for the speech loading.
5. Changed visibility of the planes and objects on the ground.

Notice about item 2: Unfortunately we did it wrong due to wrong initial info. It€s why we changed it now when we got the right info. Due to this change the tracks which display these bombs my playback incorrect.


Suggestions and Bug Repots

Please send all suggestions and bug reports regarding Pacific Fighters to PF@1c.ru

Please send all bug reports relating Dynamic campaign (DGen and NGen) separately to dgen@rogers.com

Back your old game folder up before install might be a useful tip ?

Simply copy it too a new location and then patch to avoid any possible hiccups.

I hope you installed all correct.
Because we tested it before to put on ftp.

And I run it right now on my PC with release version to check all is done or not that I requested.

But suggestion for you is right. Always back up if you are not sure that it will work on your system.

Oleg_Maddox
11-26-2004, 10:34 AM
For these who has a problem.

Pleas try following:

Run Pfsetup (Il2FBsetup) and switch off completely sound. With this option the game will not load the sound engine completely.

We did some changes in sound dlls that are requested by users. So maybe ther is the problem.

Also maybe a problem of the protection like with the previous patch.
However we running here in office without any single problem...

For these who still has a crash and they are sure that they installed first common and then second separate for each version patch, try follwing:

Also problem of crash could be followibng:

1) Rename il2_core.dll into il2_coreP4.dll
test after this.

or
2). Rename mg_snd.dll into mg_snd_sse.dll
test after this.

Or both if doesn't work.

But if it does work after this, we know what this means: Not working on AMD processors due to Intel compilator that we use for crating the DLLs for Hyper Threading...

Please confirm

ok just applied same process to pacific fighters stand alone and it works fine with out a hitch

step one:

double click on PF_patch302b_common.exe browse to \Program Files\Ubisoft\Pacific Fighters and install

step two :
double click on PF_patch302b.exe and install (check directory path if you installed to drive other than C driveor a different directory)

For FB/AEP/PF

Step one:
is the same as for pacific except the directory should be \Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles

Step two:
you double click on PF_patch302bm.exe and install (again check directory path if you installed to drive other than C driveor a different directory)

Ok, now one guy is saying it works with common first, and another is saying it is working with common second.

Also, this is what it says on link page, notice they say two different things.

"Attention!!!!!!!!

PF_patch302b_common.exe is for both, stand alone and merged but path has to be manually specified. and MUST be installed Regardless of if you using Stand alone or Merged!!! Right AFTER you install PF_patch302b.exe or PF_patch302bm.exe."

Then:

"To install the patch, run

1) PF_patch302b_common.exe . Please pay great attention to the installation path name of the folder. This file is common for the both stand alone and merged versions. So you need to type manually the name of the folder where it will be installed.

2) PF_patch302b.exe (Or PF_patch302bm.exe (Standalone vs Merged) and follow the on-screen instructions."


Which is correct?

If you port compiled executables to other machines, please, use the JetPack II deployment utility (see JET User's Guide, "Deployment Automation for details).


Hmmmmm. I'm sure I must have misunderstood, but doesn't the post say:


"In this version we ask the experienced players to test a new method of running the game again for final results. Both the old and the new methods are available at any time, and are fully compatible online.

If you want to test this new method, after install, run the pf_new.exe (il2fb_new.exe) executable in your PF game folder.

You can always run the game using the tried-and-true old method using the old shortcuts or pf.exe in the game folder These remain unchanged. . The new executable is not added to the start or the autorun menus in this version, but will be added there in the next patch/add-on if enough positive feedback is gathered.

Well, finally did it the "right way". Everything looks good. Can't really tell much difference in the graphics...Played several single missions and started on a Fin campaign. Did note that other pilots in the flight are now actually "looking" at their #1 lead - pretty cool. The large or big dots still look good and help gameplay. Kinda anxious to start a US campaign to see if that #2 wingman has a little change in attitude. If not, sure would like to take him behind the barn and teach him a few manners along with a little respect for his elders. Boy, this thing just keeps getting better and better....

I think when you give us more information about the future developpement (pics from Betty cockpit or Murmansk map or another projects etc...)we can better understand that not easy one side create news and one side found solution for the bugs in a same time.I believe you and our team work very hard for us and wen we have more infos,I hoppe that more people have more respect for your work.

At first we fix and improve what is neccessary at first...

The other.

Murmanks makes third party as well as the other one map - Kurland (Ian Boys is main creator)
I saw only Murmansk alpha and I really enjoy the various on this map.

We always inform when it is something ready.
And now we do it more often then after the release of FB and AEP. Sorry if you don't see differences.

Hi Oleg,
Just like to say some words of encouragement.

The precious time spent on development and the support is second to none. I dont think sush efforts towards a product has ever been equaled. The dedication and development that 1C Maddox has put into the IL2 series has got to be the only flight sim that is realistic in most ways and not only for the blue print created aircraft but the historically correct missions.

Please dont let a small hand full of the community get you down, they dont speak for the vast majority of the community that YOU have created.

Keep up the excellent work and devotion, and we'll be waiting patiantly for the next instalement.

ok here it is in a nut shell
1 install the PF combo into your AEP folder
2 install the 3.01m patch into the combo install folder
3 install the PF_patch302b_common.exe into the combo install folder
4 install the PF_patch302bm.exe into the combo install folder

this is for the combo install

1 il2fb.exe ( for the orignal EXE has the little plane and fb as a icon )


2 il2fb_new.exe ( this is the newest 1 that appeared in the folder after the beta install and has the pacific fighters icon )


the new exe's do not need to be renamed all you need to do is right click on it and place a shortcut on your desktop and then click that and it wil open the game using the new exe

to use the old exe just use your usual shortcut and it wil open the game as usual using the orignal exe

now the new exe's will not work for anyone with the no cd rts.dll installed it simply will not run so don't even try it you must have an orignal CD and it has to be in the drive for the new exe to work

next your going to ask how do i tell if i have the right rts.dll well right click on it and select properties if it's size is 104 kb then you have the cracked dll file
if the file size is 1.24mb then you have the orignal and will be good to go to test the new and the old exe's have fun and enjoy

i hope this helps to sort out some of your porblems

Oleg, the new patch works fine for me. The only problem I seem to be having is the seemingly long load times when starting a mission and I seem to have more "stuttering" when playing the game than I had before. However, keep up the good work - it's very much appreciated by all if us. If one has ever tried to deal with the likes of EA Games and others, what you guys have done for this community is beyond words to just say thank you...

As decker_runner has asked above, why aren't they simply programmed into the server and client game code?

Hi Everyone,
i noticed that I download this patch "wrong place". It shouted in install step that one or more file are corrupted.
Therefore download it fro FTP-side and now it works fine.
I also had "crash" when 5%
has loaded.

If your still crashing at 5%, please take the time to read the ENTIRE thread before starting it up again, the solution is there, you need to INSTALL the COMMON.exe FIRST, then the 3.02b(3.02bm) AFTER.

Fellow flyers,

at this point (and CrazyIvan feel free to delete or mod this post if you feel I am speaking a little out of turn) I am tearing my hair out.

I am not going to download this patch until the full release. Why? Because I'm like that. I don't open my Christmas presents until after lunch - I like to prolong the suspense and anticipation. Even though I am not going to install the beta patch, I have done something it appears many people have not, which is to read the thread before posting.

Please, to anyone else having 5% loading problems, **read this thread**. In it you will find many, many people like yourselves who had similar problems, and who all fixed them (apart from the first couple of pages) by reading this thread, and the readme file.

/rant

I shall now go and beat myself with a large brush for wandering off topic.

I thought the official patch was supposed to come out Monday with the auto installer. Now I'm left here with a public beta 3.02 that I thought would be server sided and no one is running it. Didn't understand the point of releasing a 3.02 beta. This whole released really confused me, with the common (thining this would be a 3.02 patch), and the beta (being a test version)

Sorry, but I don't understand the concept of this. Why not hire a group of internal testers?

Just wish I was prompt to make a backup because this is not an official patch.

@Pipper - PunkBuster is optional as well

@IronSight - This is what i posted in PF, replying to similar question:
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>
My understanding of this approach is pretty simple. To get community involved. IL2 series is one complex ps of software and taking under considerations viraety of hardware setups, Maddox crew took a right approach this time. Small patches with corrections of found bugs is the way to go IMO. Doesn`t matter, client or dedciated, they are trying to get game to its top performance and i think they are being successful with it. I was a beta tester for pervious versions, including Pacific Fighters and i`ll tell you what...it`s a freaking full time job. 200 planes to check, 200 FMs to look at, AI, Multiplayer..etc, etc... i don`t know where to begin. And all that just for a handfull of people, who has life besides IL2 series, you know what i mean. Not easy sitting there till 3-4am almost every night (pre-release times) testing plane after plane and so on. But now, it`s different... now 1000s of people are in the process and it`s a good thing, it`s extra 1000s pairs of eyes and extra 1000s hardware setups - which benefits all of us. Just my 02c.

Im just waiting for the proper patch now to come out,an when i do im only going to be cheated on ?my way of looking at things is that these cheaters dont just cheat them self, but they cheat the ppl who have spent lots of good money ,an spent a hell of alot of time, be coming half good at flying, plus they cheat the makers of this game who have spent ages getting this game so right, that it seems pointless to try perfecting a game, that we as flyers have waited for in our dreams,meaning ive had most flying games from 1995 till i came across this game and i thought to my self hay ppl with the same out look,who also want an airplane game as real as you can get , to the point that ive told so many ppl as i can ,even then,when im there in a game shop that the person next to me i would point this game out to him dont now this person but this is what i do ??? y ???.
again please forgive my rudness, as im word blind,<>dyslexia, which is another reason y im waiting again for the proper patch,which is not realy your concern,but a hard thing to do is type the right path when your this way it can be frustrating but then so is the cheating in this game.~s
