Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and I hope that you can help me.

I just purchased the CD of €œIL 2 Sturmovik€ on eBay. From what I have read I am fairly sure that it is version 1.01g. I have been told on other forums that it must be an original
IL 2 Sturmovik CD.

1) I am not sure which update patches to use. I have been reading the info on each from gamespot.com and I am a little confused. These are the patches I am referring to:

i) il2patch102b.zip This add-on for Il-2 Sturmovik makes several additions and changes to the game. Note: it is not compatible with the retail version (1.01g).
ii) il2patch_103a-2.exe This is the patch 2 for IL-2 Sturmovik.
iii) il2patch_104.exe The v1.04 patch adds three new flyable aircraft and fixes several issues with the game.
iv) il2patch_104a-supplement.exe This is the supplement patch of version 1.0.4 for IL-2 Sturmovik that fixes a stutter problem in the game. You do not need this patch if you are not experiencing this problem.
v) il2patch104b.zip The v1.04b patch makes 16 bug fixes and other corrections to the game. It is not network-compatible with previous versions; please see the readme file for more details.
vi) il2upgrade11a.zip The v1.1 patch adds 10 new flyable planes and a few other gameplay changes. Note: This file will update the boxed version 1.0. Please see the readme file for more details.
vii) il2upgrade11b.zip The v1.1 patch adds 10 new flyable planes and a few other gameplay changes. Note: This patch will update any version of 1.04. Please see the readme file for more details.
viii) il2upgrade12.zip The v1.2 upgrade adds four new flyable aircraft and a bunch of new missions.
ix) il2upgrade_1.2ov.exe This is a 1.02 patch for IL-2 Sturmovik. It has an open folders structure for radio chatter voice files and corresponding HUD messages.
x) il2upgrade_1.2.exe This is an update for IL-2 Sturmovik that adds a number of planes to the pre-existing lineup.

2) For a retail version 1.01g, is this the order to install: ii, iii, iv, v, vii, viii, ix, and x? ie not installing i) or vi)?

3) I am a little confused about the use of update ix). Why would I want €œopen folders structure for radio chatter voice files and corresponding HUD messages€.?

Thanks in advance for your help

Here's (http://airwarfare.com/mediawiki-1.4.5/index.php?title=Patching) a good place to start looking.

You'll find a mine of info (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/il2_fb.htm) on these pages

Welcome to the forums, call back if you need any help or clarification http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

There have been several patches released, however you only need to install these two patches over version 1.0 in the following order:

The best advice I can give you is to go & buy the DVD of the Forgotten Battle series. Sturmo is a good sim, the full FB is x10. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks very much x6BL_Brando and slipBall .
I went to the sites recommended by you x6BL_Brando.

At site http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/IL2/il2_main.htm I think that I found the solution to my problem.
"There have been several patches released, however you only need to install these two patches over version 1.0 in the following order:
€ IL-2 Sturmovik Patch (Version 1.1a)
€ IL-2 Sturmovik Patch (Version 1.2)
If you wish to use third party voice packs use the following patch once you have upgraded to V1.2:
IL-2 Sturmovik Patch (Version 1.2ov)"

Just 2 or 3updates will do it.
This is the first place that gives me an update for Retail v1.0x -> v1.1 patch, (not just 1.0 to 1.1)
then Retail v1.1 -> v1.2 patch and finally if I want it Retail v1.1 -> v1.2ov patch.

If I run into problems with this I€ll let you know.
I now know what to suggest to anyone who also has a CD version 1.0x IL 2 Sturmovik


Thanks again for the help.
