When I add this patch to fresh installs il2, I cannot bring the game up. I have tried this several times to fresh installs ofi il2 all of the game installs are with the expansion pack. The game works o.k. before I add the patch. Any help would be appreciated Shafto

What version are you applying the patch to? The game needs to be at v4.07 before you apply the 4.08 patch.

The retail IL2 Sturmovik: 1946 should be at 4.07. Earlier versions (IL2 Forgotten Battles + Ace Expansion + Pacific Fighters) will be at earlier versions unless you can find the other upgrade packs. As far as I recall, one of the required upgrade packs was only released in Russia so you'd need to start with the 1946 version (includes everything else) before applying the current patches from 4.08 up.

It will tell you which version you have in the Start Up screen. Look in the lower left corner. It will show V 4.07 in red or whatever version of the game it is.

I think you maybe on patch 2.04.

thats a really old version of il2, its forgotten battles and ace expansion pack, bundled together.

To use patch 4.08 and later patches you will need to buy IL2 Sturmovik: 1946 i'm afraid

IIRC, gold pack was FB, AEP and PF bundled, that'd make it v3. something. As Brando said, go to Amazon for the IL2:1946 version (or your preferred retailer, but you are unlikely to find it as cheap as Amazon has it ATM).
