Sorry but no, you need AEP also.

The proper merged install is IL2 Forgotten Battles, patch to AEP, then patch to PF, then update patch 3.03m, 3.04m, and finally 4.01m in that exact order.

What stansdds said, except that it's a bit easier, you can leave out 3.04m ...

Have Fun!

Thanks guys but the prob is i,ve been told that AEP is no longer getable. i live in southend on sea Essex UK if i am wrong or right about this i dont know but if any of you fellas can point me in the right direction i would love to know. I find this game so addictive that i want the whole bag.

Try Gold version of FB (or something like that) which includes FB+AEP.

AEP or the Gold Pack is still getable, but you'll probably have to hunt for it and may have to order online.

I initially started out with FB, then got PF before I got AEP because PF was still (and is even now) available on store shelves, but I had to order AEP. Being extremely impatient to fly my beloved Spitfires, I merged PF directly to FB. Everything worked fine except for the following:
-you wont have all the planes that are in AEP (their names show up, but you cant select them...duh)
-a lot of maps are missing, therefore you cant fly campaigns.
-you can still fly online as long as the map is one of those in FB or PF (see above: if its not, the server wont load).

Other than that, its fine. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

So, to answer your question: Yes, it is possible to do that and youll be able to play the game, just not at full potential! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I ordered FB and AEP from amazon about 6 weeks ago. it was advertised as "usually dispatched in 7 days" or something,
http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif then i recieved the confirmation email stating that it should arrive between "mid july and August 3rd" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

lo and behold, another email yesterday saying it will be another 6 weeks to get hold of AEP.
