I have FB+AEP+PF, is it OK to delete the original IL2 or are there any shared files I need?

They're two completely separate games but make sure you get all your skin and mission files before you delete it.

Why delete it??


You can still have lots of fun with the old game, it'll make a great change when (if) you get bored with FB.
The game is less realistic, but has it's advantages. (ex. you can quickly U-turn onto someones tail).

The original game is the next best thing to FB/PF (unfortunately). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You are on Prozac or something? Il-2 is MORE realistic than FB+AEP+PF together...in fact, the FB is Il-2 with "arcade" mode turned on by default and permanent.
In IL-2 the planes are planes, far away from the gliders from FB...
In FULL REAL try to take off with a FW-190 A8 loaded with bombs and gas tank...or try to do a full circuit with full flaps down with a Me-109 G6 "early"...

In fact, when FB came out there was a lot of "anger" about the dumbing down factor compared to Il-2...but after all not everyone was able to fly (not to mention dog fight) in Il-2...something needed to be done to enlarge the "customer/player" base...and it was done by the this arcade version, called FB...
It's like Counter Strike versus the supreme spray and pray games like Medal of Honor or Call of Duty...

I still have IL2 patched to 1.2 on my rig, and when nothing i like is happening anywhere else I go into the old IL2 room and have some fun. Makes me appreciate what we have now too. S!

Yeah, right http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well you just try to cruise without losing airspeed/altitude in the v.1.0 Sturmo with _anything_ else than full throttle first, and THEN we'll talk about "realistic" if you like...

Let's keep it fair, patch it up first, then go FullThrottle http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

Realistic or not, I still like it the way it is!

Have Fun!

OK, OK! But I seem to remember that things were mellowed down & stuff like prop torque tamed in v.1.2 already (or whatever the last patch number was).

Am I correct?

Msalama,

You could very well be correct, I surely can't remember.....

(Just thought I'd mention the word 'patch' as them things seem to be so very "important" nowadays..... not to me though. You are right, it's lot's of fun, allways, all the ways...)

I wish IL2 Sturmovik supported Track IR (version 1) better. I LOVE IL2/FB/EAP/PF eieio, but I'd like to compare them both for myself. It's been a few years since my last foray into IL2 Sturmovik, and I haven't loaded it back in because of no REAL Track IR compatability. (It's dodgy at best)

As many have said, harder doesn't necessarily mean realistic. (I'm not a pilot.... but I do play one on the computer) So, wether IL2 is realistic over IL2FB et al isn't something I can speak with authority.

BUT I can speak with authority of the FUN factor...... YEEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAAAA for both sims.

If you have the hard drive space leave it in for a change of pace.
