Apart from patch 4.0 I have not been able to find any patches for BoE. Do any other patches exist and if so, where can they be found?

I know of these patches/updates for BoE:

1. BoE AEP "Royal Air Force" update

2. BoE night skins update

3. BoE PF expansion. (DGen 3.1.3.6) (new DGEN). Unofficial patch
From the readme file:

This is a free expansion of Battle over Europe for those who have a merged Pacific Fighter install and a patch 3.03m.
It requires Battle over Europe by Just Flight - otherwise Normandy and Ardennes campaigns won't run!
The expansion is my own, Just Flight and UBI are not responsible for this product, use on your own risk.
Other than that I am going to support it just like I did with any official product. It will likely be upgraded, check at SimHQ
announcements of new versions. All future DGen executables will support this code.

New features:

All templates were upgraded with new PF ships, artillery and other units.
B-25 campaign for RAF, A-20 campaign for US
Airfields use new lights, templates use new fire and smoke objects.
US medals were corrected to correspond PF set.

4. BoE West Front addon


No. 1- 2 were earlier available for download at http://www.justflight.com, but I dont think they are there any longer.
They may be hiding in the Just Flight's BoE forum though.
Perhaps this can help:

My understanding is that if you have FB+BOE+AEP+PF 4.02m, then the BOE_4.0 patch is the most recent 'official' patch (it's by Starshoy, BOE's DGen author, and is based on the PF 4.01m patch). BOE_4.0 was offered outside of JustFlight but it contains the earlier BOE patch material except the night skins file.

The West Front addon is an unofficial patch by Jumo. Not that that is a bad thing, mind you.

Thank you for the information, gentlemen. I will download the various items in the next few days.
