Just in case you don't know, the latest iteration of this game is IL2:1946, available on ONE DVD. There is only one patch after that, which gets you online.

I know this answers questions you didn't ask, but as I said, "just in case." Others here may know all about the older game versions.

If you really want to go the route of patching up, you can get most of the details here:

But I really would not recommend this. Do as Hayate Ace suggests and invest in the il2-1946 DVD which you can pick up for less than $20 at places like Best Buy, Go Gamers or Amazon.Com It will save you a ton of grief and give you a lot more options.

And a warm welcome to the Forum sir. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Ok. Thanks for your help.
Since i already got the forgotten battles and Pacific fighters few years ago, I thought I might as well use it. once I get good at it and want to play online I get the 1946 version.

Well 1946 gives you a lot more planes, maps, and new flight models, so I think it would still be good to get 1946 right away. Also, mods are only awailable for the 1946, at least as far as i know, but that might not be a consideration for you.

Really dude get 1946 asap it has so much more to offer.In 1946 you get two hunrade and somthing aircrat to play with including bombers fighters and jets. Give sell the old coppys that you have to somone who is just getting in to or has yet to get in to sims 1946 will chnage your life.

1946 won't be available forever either. One of these days it will be gone and you won't be able to get a copy. It is so cheap you should buy one today!

You guys have convinced me!. I am going to buy 1946.
one further question, apart from tutorails in the game, is there anyone done good step by step guide or video guide on how to fly, combat, bombing etc. Also how do you get out of stalls?
thanks again

Stalls and Spins.

Stalls are caused when the airflow over the wings is insufficient to create lift. To generate lift you need to go faster. To go faster you need to push the stick forward and let gravity speed you up, this is how you get out of a simple stall.

If you stall and one wing drops you are going into a spin, this is because one wing has stalled before the other.

You can correct by pushing the stick forward before the spin takes full effect or iff it doesn't then you will need to figure out which way you are spinning, apply full rudder in the opposirte direction to the spin and push the stick forward.

If this doesn't work after 5 or so revolutions try cutting the engine revs too.

If you get into a spin too close to the ground to recover then bail out.

This is a pretty basic guide for you, different aircraft act differently, the key is to know your aircraft and what it does.
