folowing the patches tradition aroound i thing this is how the things are looking:
pf_303.exe is probably the one for the stand alone install
pf_303m.exe is probably for the merged install
since there is a pf_301_to_303.exe probably the ones above are to be applied to the 3.02b version of the game.
So probably this one (pf_301_to_303.exe) is to be applied to the 3.01 version (but i have no iddea ifis for the merged install or the stand alone)
now... what version do you have, Brain?

From the 303m readme:

README
Pacific Fighters v.3.03 (3.03m)


Warning


The current version 3.03 (3.03m) 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.
3.03 €" for stand alone PF
3.03m €" for FB+AEP+PF
And of course, the versions 3.03 and 3.03m are not compatible with each other playing via network.

Notes on the Patch Installation

This 3.03 patch may be installed over the previous 3.0 stand alone version.
The 3.03m patch version can only be installed over the merged PF 3.0 install (FB+AEP+PF).

This 3.03 patch maybe installed as well over 3.01(3.01m) or 3.02b(3,02bm) with corresponding installation versions.

To install the patch, run
1) Stand alone PF: PF_patch303.exe and follow the on-screen instructions.

2) Merget install FB+AEP+PF: PF_patch303m.exe and follow the on-screen instructions.

Notice: The new method tested in 3.01 and 3.02 need more work for protection of possible online cheaters. So currently we release such exe file only for dedicated server.


Notice: the main purpose of this patch

The version 3.03 makes compatible online all the language versions that are released or coming soon in several countries.

Main modifications and fixes



3D models

1. More inaccuracies in cockpit gauges are corrected (however still several cockpit changes with some levers and indicators will be available only in the add-on with new planes later).
2. Corrected many minor glitches.

FM and aircraft performance

1. Additional minor individual tuning of flight models and aircraft performance were made (Dive speed F4F for example).
2. Reworked physics model of automatic multi-stage supercharger (most visible result - on FW-190A/F, P-51s and some others).


Other improvements:

1. Multiplay: Corrected on client side the ships damaged. Corrected respawn method for more than one carrier on the dogfight map at once for one army.
2. Improved visibility of some ships, vehicles and columns.
3. Additional fixes for dynamic campaign.
4. Corrected external fuel tanks on Spitfire IX and Spitfire VIII
5. Corrected rocket loadout for Seafire
6. Corrected bomb racks for Spitfire IX
7. Corrected several non-destructable ground vehicles
8. Corrected compass of P-38s

New objects:
1. Static smokes
2. Static fires
3. Static airfield electric lights



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




README
Pacific Fighters v.3.02b (3.02bm)


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:

9. Multiplay: Corrected on client side the ships damaged (will be other with add-on).
10. Parafrag bombs explosion changed to an instantaneous fuze.
11. Improved visibility of many ships.
12. Made new optimization for the speech loading.
13. 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.



README
Pacific Fighters v.3.01 (3.01m)



Main modifications and fixes

Damage model

1. Ships have improved damage model for small unprotected gun mounts. Now when they receive enough damage they can be €œshot off€. NOTE: this will not affect the ships that were built for the original IL-2 which are still available in the merged install. Only the later ships (cruisers and battleships) that shipped with FB, AEP and of course all PF ships will be affected.
2. B-17E and B-17F damage textures are fine-tuned.
3. The left wing damage model are corrected on the P-63C.
4. Visuals for wing and engine damage model are corrected on the A-20G.
5. Additional thorough testing was performed on damage model physics for most planes. In some cases additional changes were made to the damage modeling.

3D models

1. All currently reported 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).
2. Pressure gauges are added to the F6F.
3. Graphical inaccuracies in arrestor hooks are corrected on some planes.
4. Additional aesthetical changes which don€t affect gameplay are made to some cockpits.


FM and aircraft performance

1. Additional individual tuning of flight models and aircraft performance were made for the F4F, F4U, F6F, Ki-43, Ki-61, A6M, Spitfire, Seafire, SBD and other planes.
Note: Spitfire and Seafire engine overheat model was finetuned as much as possible within the constraints of the current global engine model.

2. Engine cylinder compression and prop pitch modeling was extensively redone, which now results in the planes losing airspeed faster as engine RPM decreases.

AI

1. Many users requested additional control over the ship flak guns. We€ve added a new ROF(rate of fire) function to the FMB. This function controls the time it takes the ship to reload the weapons. Acceptable values range between 0.5 and 100, where
0.5 - half the historical time (i.e. ships fire twice as fast)
1 €" historical reload time
5 €" recommended value for lower-end machines.
100 €" the absolute slowest reload value possible. You will see virtually no flak with this setting.
Note: this function is a compromise between historical accuracy and the requests of many users who have lower end machines but want to participate in large-scale battles with many well armed ships. Increasing the pauses between salvos will lower the ship flak€s calculations during the game and thus introduce increased frame rates.
2. Japanese planes now use also the V formation
3. When the AI plane€s aircraft carrier is sunk, it will look for a nearby friendly carrier. In case none are found, the aircraft will attempt to locate a nearby friendly airfield; barring that they will ditch in the water or a nearby island.

Other improvements:

14. Improved water explosion effects.
15. B-25J bomb sight units are changed from metric to imperial.
16. Added fire extinguishers to A-20G and B-25J.
17. Fixed co-op track playback bug.
18. Fixed 3D A6M2 folding wing bug.
19. Fixed rare cases of aircraft raising gear while parked on carriers.
20. Added several stationary planes.
21. Several void.bmps added to several planes.
22. Corrected names and ammo loads for Ki-61s.
23. Removed fire extinguishers from P-38.
24. Corrected take-offs from damaged aircraft carriers.
25. Extensively reworked sinking behavior of ditched planes.
26. Added the ability to use time-delayed bombs against ships.
27. Corrected service dates and designations for some planes
28. Corrected the bug that occasionally appeared in co-op games when using
the No User Loadout option of FMB.
29. Added new skins for B-24, B5N, F4F-4, FM2 and J2M (Thanks Dani Santos)


Dynamic Campaign fixes and improvements

1. Wrong objects in final missions in case of autonomous install
2. Wrong airfield in New Guinea
3. Crashes in mountains in New Guinea.
4. Crash in second Midway mission when using Hard campaign difficulty
5. Collisions of Rufe at Iwo when using High Air Intensity
6. Wrong objects on some maps.
7. Guadalcanal NGen campaign did not work when selecting Hellcats as bombers.
8. Occasional start on water when moving to Iwo map
9. Text corrections
10. All ships now fire in DGen and NGen, but their rate of fire is lower. By default in these campaigns it is 5 times lower, but it can be modified.

To change ship rate of fire in DGen campaigns, add a line to conf.ini

SlowFire=n.n, where n.n = 0.5 to 100.0

To change ship rate of fire in NGen campaigns, add a line to corresponding camapign file, look as an example at /NGen/CampaignCoralSea.dat

It starts with lines:

[$select]
SlowFire:5.1

All ships in this online campaign will have their fire rate 5.1 times slower than original.

10. Iwo, Chichi, Okinawa, Wake operations added to USMC career
11. New Guinea aded to USAAF career.
12. Midway removed as USAAF operation.
13. Some plane choices are changed.
14. P-38 can be used in Japan 1945 operation
15. Marianas operation added to USN and IJN
16. CampaignLength parameter does not affect Pacific maps anymore (otherwise it could lead to very short campaigns)
17. British markings on B-29 in USAAF Japan campaign - fixed.
18. Kates dropping torpedoes to ground in Pearl Harbor - fixed
19. In order to allow planes with arrestor hook to fly from ground bases, it is possible now to use classes file associated with your career. For instance, this is a file from IJN fighter career classesIN1.dat

A6M5A Palau BASE
A6M5B Palau BASE
A6M5C Palau BASE
A6M5A Iwo BASE
A6M5B Iwo BASE
A6M5C Iwo BASE
A6M5A Okinawa BASE
A6M5B Okinawa BASE
A6M5C Okinawa BASE

Syntax:

Plane_code Operation_code BASE (or CARRIER)
This file allows A6M5A and A6M5B which are carrier based planes by default to fly from airfields at Palau, Iwo and Okinawa.



Graphic engine changes

1. Improved icon visibility for ground objects and planes.
2. Improved water effects such as explosions and wakes.
3. Improved water rendering:
a. Decreased tiling with Water = 0
b. Removed noise dots and squares in sun glint for all modes
c. Improved waves and whitecaps with Water=3.
4. Improved multiple visual effects.
5. Removed black dots that sometimes appeared around clouds
6. Improved caching for faster rendering in the Perfect mode

Recommended drivers
As of this moment, the latest recommended WHQL drivers are
ATI cards:
Catalyst 4.11 http://www.ati.com/home/online/CatalystCCCdriver.html
NVidia cards:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_66.93


Additional Notes

1. Missions, tracks and other file names do not allow period, commas and special symbols such as umlauts.
2. When creating squad files for network play, please use these standard country codes to assign your squad to a specific army:

de - Germany
fi - Finland
fr - France
gb - RAF
hu - Hungary
it - Italy
ja - IJA
in - IJN
nn - None
pl - Poland
ro - Romania
sk - Slovakia
ru - USSR
us - USAAF
un - USN
um - USMC
ra - RAAF
rz - RNZAF
rn - RN
du - NL


Creating FMB missions with ships.

If you wish to create missions with ships performing evasive maneuvers simulated with waypoints, please use the following guidelines:

1. Do not make sharp turns in the waypoints, especially for the carriers with the
planes on the deck. This is especially important if these planes must land or take-off during these waypoints.
2. If you wish to make turning waypoints for other ships, then see the item above and please make as many waypoints as necessary to create smooth enough turns.
3. You can currently use this unsupported feature, which may be removed in the future.
- set the group of planes on the carrier by the rules described in readme v.3.0.
- set for this group of planes with only one (take off only!) waipoint, fuel=0, No weapon, Radio Silence.
This way you will have static aircraft permanently sitting on the aircraft deck.

I just did a test for you. I installed the PF_patch303_over301.exe (57mb) over one of the backup copies of 3.02m and it screwed it up. The install transformed my merged 3.02m into a 3.03 ( stand alone). no access to all the FB+AEP planes.
So I sugest you get the 3.03m. no idea if it should be a " PF_patch303m_over301.exe "

It seems p51 got faster at high (5k) while 190 A lost the slightly excessive speed it had there.

I saw no different effect.. does it work only on perfect mode ?( i don´t use perfect since I think high res is ore important than Perfect mode)

F2A2 is flyable. Nice little plane, actually. Try doing carrier ops with the new patch. You actually hear the cable being caught. Also for mission builders, there are some new objects. Several types of lights, smoke, and fire effects for your map making pleasure.

I find it fascinating that DEC 24th the following statement is released on UBI site:

We are pleased to announce that versions 3.03 and 3.04, <span class="ev_code_RED">currently in the works</span>, will bring further improvements suggested by the players. In today's update you will discover some of the objects that will be included in version 3.04 that will further improve or enhance the gameplay: test runway, target circle for bomber practice, landing signs€¦

You will also find WiP screenshots of third-party cockpits and models which have met or are expected to meet our standards of quality and may be included in future updates of the game.
The 1C:Maddox Games team wish you a very merry Christmas and all the best in the new year!

Then 1 day later 3.03 is released? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

To have a patch released without no official word from 1c or Ubi. I'm kinda torn. I want to install it for the Buffalo and the compass fix on the P-38, plus everything else. And it seems most m8's aren't having any problems. Then, you have the fact that it's not officially been released. Geesh! Decisions. I believe I'll wait with you m8. We need to keep the same version to be able to hook up and fly anyway. If we do make a change, it needs to be squadron wide. S!

Notes on the Patch Installation

"This 3.03 patch may be installed over the previous 3.0 stand alone version.
The 3.03m patch version can only be installed over the merged PF 3.0 install (FB+AEP+PF).

This 3.03 patch maybe installed as well over 3.01(3.01m) or 3.02b(3,02bm) with corresponding installation versions."

The way I interpret it: If you DID NOT PATCH the initial merged 3.0 install you will use the 3.03m patch. If you only have the PF stand alone loaded then you will use the 3.03 patch.

The 3.03 patch is also intended if you are running:
The stand alone 3.01 or 3.02b and/or
The merged 3.01m or 3.02bm

Or am I totally out to lunch here?


WV <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I installed the 303m over my 3.01m and is all fine.

_As in readme:_
This 3.03 patch maybe installed as well over 3.01(3.01m) or 3.02b(3,02bm) <span class="ev_code_RED">with corresponding installation versions.</span>

So I think you can install the 303m over all <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">"m"</span> versions, and the plain 303 over all the stand alone versions <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

May be quite right Jaws. 303 install over the 302bm does not work. Game locks at 60%. Thanks for heads up.

I tend to agree with you on the matter Tsisqua and I hope that is indeed still a fact that only Oleg is in possesion of the source code. That being said let me pose a question, This isn't the only thread I've seen you state that you don't feel we were intended to have this just yet.

It strikes me as somewhat more than ironic that just a few weeks ago, all that one saw on these boards were those who decry piracy and those who try and find the means to defend it.
I hope this was Olegs way of a Xmas surprise for us all but lets say for arguements sake that you are right. This was leaked intentionally or not and Oleg/1C Maddox did not in fact intend for this to be released yet.

Does that invalidate all those who a short time ago said anyone , under any circumstances has no right or reason to posess something unless they have the developers ok? As in "Here you go fellows, enjoy" or is this one just to be filed under the broad heading of" Can't be wrong because I did it, everyone else is doing it"......Remeber now this is a hypothetical situation I present but if it truly wasn't ment to be issued then at least in my opinion any of us using it who slammed pirates and piracy just a few days back are guilty of hypocracy.
You can say well it was there and its their fault that it became available but I belive a good many know the difference between right and wrong.

I'm really curious if Oleg were to post here Monday morn saying "Guys , thats the 3.03 alright but it was leaked" How many of the people who rent their garmets and rubbed ash in their hair when 60,000 + copies were illegally downloaded won't say a word about being in possesion of a patch they technically had no right to obtain

A leaked path is nothing compared to piracy. Piracay make developer loose money, path leak is only an incovinience.

A single PF fake copy is more prejudice than 1000 downloads from a leaked path.

The important thing is to never ever let the other person have the last word no matter how purile the discourse or infantile the behavior.

It looks like great fun over in PF but I couldn't dare to compete with the masters so maybe we can practice over here....It should be safe because if you have ever watched a match it goes on page after page after pointless page sometimes and they never get banned..

Well... I saw this post and started downloading this patch immediately. Now while it has been downloading I have been reading the feedback here and now I am a little dubious. I have got through all these posts and now the download is complete.

Do I install?

I think I might.

It is, afterall, on an official Ubi download site. Not on some other site where a leaked patch might be, but here at Ubi's servers! Is this where you would find a leaked or non-official patch? It's still on there now waiting to be downloaded!

Should anyone feel guilty about downloading a patch that Ubi are currently hosting?

The only thing that leaves me slightly dubious is that there are no 'stickies' announcing it. Maybe the mods were too eager to get home and open their presents and are now stuffed like the turkey http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

I think that the old man just settled this.

Now, it never even occured to me while I was dl'ing that this might not be official, seriously. I have watched mirrors be set up while I was dl'ing from one available source, and most times that only means I am getting in on it early. I installed the patch, and never relly started to doubt the release of this until I realized that no new mirrors were being put up, and no appearance here by Oleg. I have never seen a patch released that wasn't followed up by a visit from him to see if everything was going ok with the new patch.

That being said, I get no lockups, no apparent difference in frame rates, and a flyable F2. Until 1C's figure-head comes in here and tells me to uninstall, I am leaving it.

3.03m, et al! What a bloody mess! The servers are simply running too many versions of IL-2 FB, with the AEP and PF (stand alone and merged) - it is getting very irritating to say the least. I managed to get my brother interested in FB a year ago, but he has been too busy to play anything online for the past 6 months. This week he called me as he was interested in giving IL-2 a spin - he only has FB. When he saw the hoard of versions associated with the AEP and PF, he wanted to know what in God's name was going on. In the end, he said he would not have the time to sort through it. How many others are we going to lose like that?

To continue the story, I d/l and installed 3.03m two days ago. Last evening my brother and a brother in law came to my home for dinner. Later, I took them down to my computer room - I was eager to show off PF. When I got into Hyperlobby I had to try and find a server that was running 3.03m - not an easy task. Both of my "spectators" - who have played other online games, were astounded by the different versions - especially the "chat" about the 3.03m patch. The confusion was obvious. For "die in the wool" IL2 players, it may not seem like a big deal, but others are not so patient.

Gentlemen, the dis-organization surrounding the different versions of this games in hurting us. I wish I had some suggestions on how to correct it at this stage, but I don't. I know how dedicated many of you are to this game, and any negative observation is probably not going to sit well with some. However, I think it is better to say it like it is.

I agree, and it is probably the one single factor that keeps me from going online any more than I do. I really do not have a suggestion as to how to make it better, either. This has become this way as a result of something that other game engines this old do not have: ongoing development. As a matter of fact, I have never seen a game go through this much development as it was being played/purchased. So, I suppose if we want to see new things added/corrected, it will probably stay this way, and we will just have to keep sorting through the versions http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Tsisqua . Oldman I know you both have seen me post here long enough to know that If I were accusing either of you of something it would be plainly stated. As it was the word hypothetical and if are both used frequently in the previous post. You are both very thoughtful posters , never involved in the flamers batlles and I in turn wouldn't provoke one with you.

Its still not for me as of yet and not becuase I think there's some inherant evil involved into going there and downloading it. Much simpiler than that. Here it is Monday already and a couple of things are sticking out as I read through here. No one Oleg or any one from UBI has say fit to touch this subject with the proverbial 10 footer.

The mods themselves lack of comment or input on the matter is conspicuous by its absence.
Foremost though is that for everyone I see posting that its working great there is someone posting "ehhh not so much" Here and a couple other forums have people posting that its more than shaky if they try and hst with it and results in crashes. I for one am sick to death at the slipshod hit and miss methods we have been subjected to lately and if someone feels like its necessary to ban me because I looked at the Emporer and said "What new cloths?" "The man is naked" then ban away. If the company I worked for did business the way its being done with this product as of late I would have been unemployed long before my health forced me out.

The worst is if you even say this product was released in aquite a poor state or busted, even though that is nothing short of the truth you are treated as a pirriha and shouted down and told by the fanatically loyal that if you don't like it leave.

Since when did it become fasonable to have to be handed stuff that is incorrect and say Thank you Sir may I have another? Now granted, there is always a vocal few who never are and never will be satisfied but I think to say I love this game so much not only will I ignore is faults but we should crusify anyone who points them out is a bit ridiculous. In construction if we give someone a busted product we have, by law, to make it right for 2Years! If we fail to do so not only do we suffer loss of revenue with that job but we jepordize our reputation with future customers.

I'm just rambeling out of frustration now and risking my membership again so let me leave you with this. Anybody remember when we were presented with simple self extracting zips ..they placed themselves and even the greenest of noobs could DL one and be having the time of their life a few hours later? I sure do. I miss those days.

I never once took anything that you said badly, and yes, I understood the "hypotheticality" of your statements. You are one of better blokes here, and my statements were definitely influenced by how much I have grown to like you!

Good luck this morning with your trip to the hospital, Mate.

Tried the patch over 302bm and it screwed up my game, it would crash on start up. Had to reinstall 301, 302b, and 302bm to get it to work again.

I downloaded 3.03 when i saw the link,thinking it was official.It is working fine for me,but with reading all the post's here i am starting to feel a little bit uncomfortable about downloading it.I hope that the holidays are the reason nobody 'official' has posted about it.

I had the same problem but realized:

The game won't start with the new.exe file that came out with 3.02b patches.

You have to use one of the previous .exe. files to start the game.

I played many hours yesterday with the 303m installed over 3.02b m and have encountered no problems at all....for what that's worth.

Tsisqua . Oldman I know you both have seen me post here long enough to know that If I were accusing either of you of something it would be plainly stated. As it was the word hypothetical and if are both used frequently in the previous post. You are both very thoughtful posters , never involved in the flamers batlles and I in turn wouldn't provoke one with you.

Its still not for me as of yet and not becuase I think there's some inherant evil involved into going there and downloading it. Much simpiler than that. Here it is Monday already and a couple of things are sticking out as I read through here. No one Oleg or any one from UBI has say fit to touch this subject with the proverbial 10 footer.

The mods themselves lack of comment or input on the matter is conspicuous by its absence.
Foremost though is that for everyone I see posting that its working great there is someone posting "ehhh not so much" Here and a couple other forums have people posting that its more than shaky if they try and hst with it and results in crashes. I for one am sick to death at the slipshod hit and miss methods we have been subjected to lately and if someone feels like its necessary to ban me because I looked at the Emporer and said "What new cloths?" "The man is naked" then ban away. If the company I worked for did business the way its being done with this product as of late I would have been unemployed long before my health forced me out.

The worst is if you even say this product was released in aquite a poor state or busted, even though that is nothing short of the truth you are treated as a pirriha and shouted down and told by the fanatically loyal that if you don't like it leave.

Since when did it become fasonable to have to be handed stuff that is incorrect and say Thank you Sir may I have another? Now granted, there is always a vocal few who never are and never will be satisfied but I think to say I love this game so much not only will I ignore is faults but we should crusify anyone who points them out is a bit ridiculous. In construction if we give someone a busted product we have, by law, to make it right for 2Years! If we fail to do so not only do we suffer loss of revenue with that job but we jepordize our reputation with future customers.

I'm just rambeling out of frustration now and risking my membership again so let me leave you with this. Anybody remember when we were presented with simple self extracting zips ..they placed themselves and even the greenest of noobs could DL one and be having the time of their life a few hours later? I sure do. I miss those days. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

well, I just think is deorganizatrion from UBI and 1C public relations. Its common form IL2 site to lack correct information. Even the 3.01 path only appeared at main page ONE week after it was released.

I think if something was wrong we would have a much faster response from 1c than if its everything OK. Fire gets much more attention than flowers. So lets just wait for a official pronunciation.

I really think that is an official path that was just placed in DL area a few days before it should due to holidays.
