well.. before u play online, you will need Forggoten Battles + Ace Expansion Pack + Pacific Fighters, all merged togethor,..then when you get them all installed you will need to patch the game to versionst starting from 3.01m upwards to 4.04m, then when you have the game fully patched your gonna have to download Hyperlobby, once you done all tat right we'll see you onlinehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif...oh, and welcome to the forums

Welcom, play the game you have now for a while and see how you like it. A lot of people find the learning curve to steep and fall off. If you do want to continue with this sim you can buy the ultimate edition (http://shop.ubi.com/Prod_ExtDesc.asp?catalogid=396&id=97). If you have that there are planty of servers and to play on.
And everything MadRuski said.

First please tell us what version of the game you got.

YOu really need the 'Complete Edition' if you want to play online and that doesnt include the original 'Il2 Sturmovik' at all, bizarrly.

There was a sequal to Il2 which came out called 'Forgotten Battles'.

Then an addon called 'Aces Expansion pack' which could be merged with FB.

Then 'Pacific fighters' which could be merged again.

These are all available togther now as the 'complete edition' for around 20.00. (bargain). If you want to play online I suggest you buy this, its worth it!

Please reply with what game you have.

He has il-2 fb forgotten battles. Its not patched its just straight out of the box.

He phoned me but i cant remeber whats needed to bring the game up to date so i told him to post here.

He is getting PF and he is going to get pe 2 but im not sure what other patches he needs.

In that case he'll need:

Ace Expansion Pack

Pacific Fighters

and the patches listed here:Correct Patch Order - Make sure you do it right! (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/26310365/m/5581083643)

OR (and this is the option I recommend) IL-2 Complete which can be found here:www.gogamer.com (http://www.gogamer.com)

That will get him up to version 4.04 and after that he'll just need the Pe-2 add-on.

Once he has all that check out this thread for how to get on-line:
Multiplayer Introduction Thread for New Players - Where, When, How! (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/26310365/m/6791022932)

And tell him to hurry! There's a war on! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

S!

As you are in the UK your cheapest route instead of buying AEP and Pacific fighters would be to buy them all again on DVD 14.99 Delivered see

http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/866127/IL2_Complete_Edi...ighters/Product.html (http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/866127/IL2_Complete_Edition_IL2_Sturmovik_Forgotten_Battl es_+_Ace_Expasion_Pack_+_Pacific_Fighters/Product.html)

that includes all the patches up to 4.04 and the only add on left to get would be the buy to download 4.05 which gives you the PE2, but that said the servers online are split between 4.04 and 4.05 so you would be good to go with the DVD assuming your PC has a DVD player in it.
