Just got the DVD IL2 Complete Edition Forgotten battles-ACE expansion pack-Pacific Fighter.

1st question, do I need any patches or updates ?

2nd I have tried to get on line gaming, it says server:21000 but nothing happens. Is this the right settings ?

How do I get to fly a Mosquito, is there any Typhons or Tempests to fly in the game ?

Thanks for now.

Oh yer I'm an Ex Air Attack layer, anyone else from there here ?

I think the Complete Edition goes up to v4.04m. Look in the bottom left corner of the load screen for the version number. If I am correct, then:

1. You can fly one version of the Mosquito. Just go to the Quick Mission Builder and choose the Mosquito.
2. You can fly one version of the Tempest. See above advice.
3. There are no Typhoons.

If your version number is less than 4.04m there are some free patches you can download. Post back if you need them.

Most online players use Hyperlobby, especially since the 1946 DVD came out and the software to connect to Ubi's multiplayer server was no longer included. Ubi may have discontinued their server for IL-2/Forgotten Battles completely. If it is still active you will need Ubi's client software to connect.

You can only connect to players that have the same version number of the game that you have.

UbiSoft France did offer a commercial download to upgrade your Complete Edition to the latest version, v4.08m. I don't have a link; sorry. The version that ships on the 1946 DVD is v4.07m and then there is a free upgrade patch that will get you up to 4.08m. You cannot jump from 4.04m to the current version with the free upgrade because it does not include the material from expansions v4.05m-4.07m.

Right, and most of the servers you're going to want to get on are using version 4.08. Last time I looked in Hyperlobby, there were maybe only 2-3 servers running 4.05. Everything else was the current 4.08.

Grab the IL-2 Sturmovik 1946.
That is the newest game...
Then update it to v4.08 like the rest of the gang suggested.

BTW hot nick.

No Hurri in this game is deprived of firepower.

Fly what you have, and look for the 1946 DVD.
I can't tell you where to look, for it retail either, beings I live on the other side, of this rock.

Hello Boyo... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

As said the complete addition isn't, it was when released, but there have been some paid for add ons that came out after it...... you want to get 1946, its all of them on one game plus the add ons..then you will need one patch to download to take it up to the full latest vversion....... I would also play it online at Hyperlobby as that is where most play...

He he, I tried getting abck into AA but the web site, AirAttack.co.uk was a pain in the bot bot. I couldn't access any post or links once I was logged in. I could if I wasn't , all very strange, and I got no help when trying to ask one of the moderators for help by PM.
