Would just like to know if anyone has purchased the addons from GMX Media and/or Just Flight? If so, which is the better one? The ads for both sound great, of course, but would lkie to purchase the best one to enhance the PF+FB+AEP experience.

GMX Media is a rip-off.

Just Flight's Battle Over Europe is the one to get. Even though it's third party that addon is the reason for the Normandy and Ardennes maps being made for FB and given for free.

I have BOE and it is good. Extreme_One is correct in that you are supporting the third party people who gave us two of the best maps (Normandy and Ardennes) in the IL-2 series for free.

Please buy BOE if you decide to buy a third party addon

I concur with getting BOE. Just Flight has at least 2 patches that I know of and there is another one at SIMHQ that gives you A-20 and B-25 campaigns.

Another vote for BOE. Just love the RAF campaign.

Make sure you check out the Just Flight website.

www.justflight.com (http://www.justflight.com)

There are two official patches for BoE.

Battle over Europe AEP "Royal Air Force" update

Battle over Europe night skins update

If you have FB+AEP+PF installed, Starshoy has also released an unofficial patch to give a few more campaign options using some of the new planes available.

Question: is it playable in multiplayer, and where? Sorry but i am a strictly multiplayer (and BF-109 freak) guy.

Thx

IIRC there are a couple of coops and DF arenas included with BoE.

There are a few NGen online campaigns included too...

BoE http://home.earthlink.net/~viner45/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/198.gif

Well worth the money IMO. Also, it supports the people that support our sims.

Well I got the 2 already mentioned and Fall Blau by x1 games and I reckon theyre all worthwhile getting.Fall Blau has 300 missions but I think its 'stable mate' Operation Barbarossa has a lot less.Anybody got any feedback on the new Last/Final? Days add on?My ranking of the three :1 Fall...2 Battle ... 3 Combat...

Thanks guys!!! BoE it will be from Just Flight. I have checked their web site and often go back just to "dream" a little. Placed my order today! Wonder what the mail time is from UK to Arkansas (and no jokes about pipeing sunlight into Arkansas).

Forget gmx-media,usually they make retail addons of genere games(usually just skins and rubbish missions) which always t fall under what they are worth,I found out so with their "coldwars" release, which was based on the suddenstrike2 ww2 engine, they robbed it from from fireglow(orginal russian makers of it),which eventually ended in legal action from fireglow...avoid them like the plague,sure GMX media are only the publisher but they employ pirates mostly,"just flight" I have no idea of their quality tbh so cant comment.
