View Full Version : Hello need help

02-01-2007, 03:45 AM

I just bought IL 2 1946 and I don't know where to get an update to play online.

I need to find out how to connect to the dedicated servers cause this game is very cool and the best flight sim I've played.

Cheers and much apreciated.

See you in the skies.

Make sure you get Hyperlobby too, its a game browser and lists all the games, and Coops.

Linky :-

www.hyperfighter.sk (http://www.hyperfighter.sk)

Install and pick the Il2/FB room.

If you are new to the game, try Ukdedicated1 or 2, the guys there will be very helpful to any questions you have. Very friendly bunch.

If you need more help, ask here. SOme of the Hyperlobby people tend to be not so helpful. I mostly ignore the chat.

Again, thanks for your help man.

Is there many people online at all times? or is it dead at times, I'm from Australia.

NO there always games and COops going on. Mornings there are less, probably only 100-200 people on. Evenings 800-1000.

Sort the servers in hyperlobby to show servers with the most people.

What settings have you been playing offline with?

I can recommend some servers with similar settings. Do you like to fly with externals on? COckpit on/off for example?

it says location not found from the il2 room when I try and join

btw, I like playing as realistic as possible and I like cockpit view.

I just don't like the Finnish planes with the double wings http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yak 9 baby!!

Try Forgotten battles room?

If you like realistic without externals and cockpit on then

Zeke VS Wildcats
Spits Vs 109's
Rnzolis Coop server

Sorry if I missed any, maybe others could add some.

I have heard some people had this problem before.

Do you only have Il2 46? Or do you have Forgotten Battles+Pacific Fighters and merged?

Well join some externals servers for a bit until you get used to it.

Ukdedicated2 is a very good server with externals on. Most Coops also run iwth externals on, so that people who have died can watch the action.

I was talking to you in the Austrailian Skies server, my name is -=Xiola=-. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I loaded up Hyperlobby and saw you in a game, so I came in for a sortie to make sure you were not having troubles still.

Welcome to the community mate http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif I'm an Aussie too, from Perth, how bout you? Unfortunately I never got online these days (or offline for that matter) because I'm in Year 12 this year, and I don't have 46 or anything.

Nevertheless its a great sim and a great community and you'll be fine http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
