Sorry if I upset anybody by using all caps. Just something that I am used to doing. I tried ordering the Gold Pack like some of you suggested but its out of stock. As soon as it gets in I will order it. Since I just got my copy from Walmart Do I have to download any of the patches? Happy Thanksgiving and thanks again for the info!!!!!

Gold Pack is FB+AEP only.
Full (platinum) pack isn't scheduled yet, I understand it will contain all materials (FB+AEP+PF + Russian add-ons).
see link (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/63110913/m/4371027863)

Anyway if you do get yourself a Forgotten Battles GOLD pick up Pacific Fighters too (if you don't have it already), so you can merge all three games.
After that see the patch info thread:

Pacific Fighters "out of the box" needs to be patched up. In your case, you're installing it as a 'stand-alone' game so you'll want the PF upgrade patches that DO NOT end with a lower-case 'm.'

Go to the Pacific Fighters patches page (http://www.pacific-fighters.com/en/updates.php) and install these upgrades in the order given:

- pf_v303.exe (100Mb) > installs over versions 3.0 (out-of-the-box), 3.01 and 3.02.

- pf_v401.exe (100Mb) > "4.01 for stand alone PF."

- pf_v402.exe (25Mb) > "installs over stand alone version 4.01."

If you haven't installed any patches yet and if you're attacking Pearl Harbor, I'm guessing that you're flying the D3A1 "Val"? It's best to look at a detailed explanation on how to fly the Val properly, but the basic idea is that it is a dive bomber -- you get high above your target, dive straight down with the target in your gunsight, release the bomb, and pull out of the dive.

I can't remember offhand which Japanese plane has the cap covering the gun/bombsight, but if you're seeing a big black circle just above your instrument panel blocking your view in the "Val" then hit Shift+D (or maybe that is Control+D ?). The cap should slide away and allow you to look though the sight.

The Val, and the Ki-43 models all have the gunsight cover
I've got mine set to Shift+D...i think that's dsfault
