Question is there, if this BoontyBox is required to install the game will one need it after a format? Aren't the keys one use only? How does one go about this, if by some chance of fate I'm able to get a legal copy of the PE2 Peshka and back it up, how do I reinstall?

If its been discussed, please point me in the right direction as there are too many threads to sort through after this whole... you know.

ended up chucking the old exe's back in, cos otherwise a box half came up, but no images etc so i couldnt put in my code if i wanted too...

Save only the files that are game related,( Intros, Missions, Paintschemes, Training, fb_3do15.SFS, files.SFS, file.1 and file.2 which you should of renamed to Pe-2_1mis and Pe-2_2.mis, and the ReadmePe2). stick em in a folder and call it 4.05 Patch... put that and all yer other patches on CD/DVD or what ever medium you burn... do your reformat.. load IL-2, and install your zip patches.. then take the files you saved from 4.05 and copy and paste.. I have already wiped the game and did a fresh install I have the complete DVD, so I just loaded it, and copied and pasted the relevant 4.05 files and it works like a champ.. there is no interference from boonty.. you needed the key to unlock the file the FIRST time..once you did that, it's yours to do as you please....

What would be handy would be a changed file list for 4.05m so I can create a 4.05 "patch" zip and archive it along with the other patches (not that I need them now I have the DVD edition).

I suppose the above post is almost that, eh.
