Please do, I'm anticipating leaving mine in the shrinkwrap until next time I do a reinstall (this is presuming that the DVD contains up to 4.04 with no additional content beyond what we already have).

I presume the DVD has a combined install programme that does the lot and you don't have to manually install all three games off it individually?

Just installed it. That makes for one easy install. No rebooting after each version http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Spinner it installs complete right up to 4.04

Another question: if installing from the DVD does it require the DVD in the drive to load?

If not I'll install the DVD version rather than my current merged install!

I'm new to the IL-2 series, still playing the hell out of the demo. This edition is a dream come true now, and my curiosity is this:

Since Pacific Fighters has much better water and other features, are these carried over into IL-2 and it's addons, as well?

Is that DvD contains StarForce?
MY COMPUTER > PROPERTIES > HARDWARE > DEVICE MANAGER > in a drop down VIEW menu select SHOW HIDDEN DEVICES > then look for NON PLUG & PLAY DRIVERS tree it should be listed there if you have it installed.

Also checking as suggested would only tell you whether or not starforce had been installed, not by what or when http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Mine arrived this morning http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif, won't be installing it though http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif. I'm trying to study for an MCSA/MCSE qualification and this sim has been getting in the way big time.

I recently uninstalled all my IL2 stuff from my PC and put the CDs up in the attic to get them out of temptations way. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif

When I qualify, I'm building me a big SLI rig with TrackIR,pedals new stick and throttle,the works!!
In the meantime it's back to the books. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Sounds like a good plan.
Except for the attic, too hot.

Can you make a stand alone installation of Pacific Fighters from the DVD if wanted, or is purely a merged install?
Just a thought.
Best wishes.

Anybody know if or when it will be released in the US ? Someone suggested Play.com, and the Play.com US site only sells movies..
Tis frusterating when the rest of the world has a new "toy" and the US doesnt have it yet. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Just got mine from a Virgin Megastore in a small Northern town. Listed at 20 but when I went to pay, it was reduced to 12.99, maybe worth checking out if you've not already got it on order.

Not installed it yet, might keep it in the wrapper against future failures.

I've ordered mine but if there selling at Virgin for 12.99 I might get a copy tomorrow.

I got my DVD copy today. I have had the CD versions since their first releases but this provides a very nice total backup.

If it is difficult for you to get PM me if you have the likes of Paypal and pay me the cost of it and postage I would be more than happy to order it off play here and then repost it directly to you... I did this for someone in Canada and he did the same when the releases of FB and AEP came out. I have also sold about 9 new copies of AEP on here over the last few months and all will no doubt if asked give u a reference or nine... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yes...actually Pacific Fighters, in the merged installation, just installs ontop of what is already in place in the FB and AEP packages. Improvements are carried across the board...new clouds, water visual improvements, damage model changes, flight model changes, the whole thing is done across the board. The graphics mode of the IL-2 demo is still present in the very latest release (slightly improved)...so its compatibility remains the same (although the DM, FM, AI calculations have increased).

No US release yet; this is getting a bit silly.

I know GoGamer imports it, and that's sweet, but there are still flight simmers in the US.

I was talking to a fellow today. He'd probably pick up a copy of Il-2 if he found it in a store, but I'm not so sure about ordering it on the internet.
