Whenever I try to play on-lineat ubi.com I get an error message that says "Dogfight Not Installed". I can't find any reference to a "Dogfight" program or add-on anywhere. What can I do to be able to play? Anyhelp would be appreciated.

Forget trying to play at UBI and go here http://hyperfighter.sk/ and get hyperlobby installed and play from there.

Download and use Hyperlobby(google it), there are up to 1000 people online most nights, that is where the action is http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Also make sure you are patched to 4.08 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

ALso make sure you change your name in the game as the default name is not accepted by servers.

If you leave it then you end up with a connection timed out message or kicked message.

WHat settings do you play with? WHat level of skill are you? We can offer some good servers for you to get started on so that you have a good time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

1: If you want easy settings, just air dogfighting with late war planes, each side can pick any plane so you have Bf109's fighting Bf109's, SPitfires fighting La7's etc. then try 334th Squad server. Red vs Blue, no ground targets.

If you want Axis versus Allies, Maps from all through the war, mostly historical maps and historical planesets, Each side has ground troops to protect and for your team to win you must kill the other teams targets, then try these servers :-

1 : As above, settings : cockpit off, externals on, padlock on, icons on, very easy settings then try UKdedicated1 server.

2 : As above, settings : cockpit always on, limited friendly icons, externals on, padlock on then try Ukdecicated2

3 :As above, settings : cockpit always on, very limited icons, externals off, padlock off, then try Winds of War, Historia, Ukdeicated3, Zekes VS Wildcats, SPits vs 109's.


If you want late war Western front only , pretty realistic settings, same planeset every map, then try Warlcouds.

There are other good servers, but these are the most popular and where you will find most of us.

Once you get online, open your chat box and drag the corner bigger with the mouse, make it 5 or 6 lines, otherwise you will only see one line of chat and will miss most chat and map messages about targets etc.

Of course, just in case you would like the option of both places to play, here is the fix for your issue:

Dogfight not found fix for UBI (http://ubisoft.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/ubisoft.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=8097&p_created=1060713263&p_sid=iIAtr4Bi&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PWRmbHQmcF9ncmlkc29yd D0mcF9yb3dfY250PTMmcF9wcm9kcz0wJnBfY2F0cz0wJnBfcHY 9JnBfY3Y9JnBfc2VhcmNoX3R5cGU9YW5zd2Vycy5zZWFyY2hfb mwmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1GQiBkb2dmaWdodA* *&p_li=&p_topview=1)

I can't believe after all this time, the installer that they are using on the install disk for this latest version of the game, still has this issue. It's been around since Forgotten Battles. I've learned never install the UBI lobby from any disk. I always try to join the UBI lobby after a clean install and let it prompt me to install the latest software from their site.

Most versions being run at UBI are pre-1946 V4.04m though and not 1946 V4.08m, just FYI. HL most definitely has more players, but it's nice once in awhile to head over to UBI and hang with a smaller, more laid-back crowd.

ok I am taking it you have the correct patch installed correctly 8.04 and not the server version and are not running through a router........

In windows go
Start
All programs
Ubisoft folder
last window click on set up
when that opens click on network tab
if there is a window in there with named IP
there will be the word default in it
Click on default and it will show 2 numbers
click on the lower one and it will replace Default in the window. save and try again ity should connect now. (not all have the IP window)

other one, do you hae a firewall installed and are you allowing ubicom to access the web and also to act as a server so it can acess both ways...........

one of those 2 should do it but as said Hyperlobby is where most people are and its free http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif....

Oh and welcome to the forums http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
