The disc ships as version 4.07. Just one patch will bring you up to 4.08m, the current version. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

And that 4.08m patch is here:

And you want the 144.8MB patch, not the Dedicated Server patch. Thought I would mention that as there have been several m8s popping in over on the Community Help forum wanting to know why they were still at version 4.07 after installing the 4.08m patch. Well, they had installed the Dedicated Server patch instead. So I thought I would make it clear not to install the Dedicated Server patch ahead of time.

Might i ask a question also....does the U.S version come bundled with the Bootybox sucurity function.
Reason being while i have all versions and am patched to 4.07 saw IL2 1946 at wallyworld for $30.00 and thought hmmmm' I can save some shelf space and have my cake too!

No boonty in the DVD.

No securerom on the American release either. Also (though I can't confirm it) I understand the American version already has the NoDVD exe that allows play without the disc inserted.

I have the American version, but am still using the install from when I ordered the Euro version.

Confirmed: The American version does not require the DVD after installation.
