Have played IL2 cod since it come out but consider now restart IL2 1946 after latest patc on COD. I have that IL2 1946 CD. I dont know what is needed to download and install over IL2 1946 to be up to date and where to get it.
Is there still a "clean" version and a Mod version to consider and if, what is the difference. Have read som place that a new verson .12 is under way. Is that a "clean" version and what is in it..
Hope I am not insulting somebody with using the "clean" and Mod version names I just want to now what is going on and take a desisopn what to do to go on with all the fun I have had since 2003. I know all about the discusions that went on abouth this some years ago.

Mission4Today is the place to get the game patches. http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&c=605 takes you right to the requisite page for all the official patches from 4.08 to 4.11.1
You need to be registered @ M4T to use the download archives - it's the best source there is - free too, though contributions are welcome. If you're not registered there, then you ought to be!:D

4.12 is around the corner - with several new flyables from the Team Daidalos crew.

I never thought this would be the case but after all this time IL2 is stll the best thing out there overall.. Some sims look better.. some sims have way more detail.. but this sim still does everything nicely..

I too have been wanting to start playing IL2 again. I play single player and not online.... and was wondering about patches and such. I am patched up to 4.09m right now. I am a little confused at M4T download page as what it means by "International Version". I live in the US. I suppose I would upgrade to 4.10m international first, OR could I go directly to 4..101m en ?? and then 4.11 and lastly the "fix" 4.11.1 International Versions?? Just a bit confused (again):p

Also, since I have been away from the game so much, I missed the "IL2: Cliffs of Dover". I seen it on Ebay and was wondering if it is "ONLINE" Only? The box says for PC DVD ONLINE. Is it also "single" player? and were there "problems" with this IL2 COD version as well?? I take it the game is standalone too?

Thanks for any insight on this!

Install "Il-2 Sturmovik: 1946" if you have space on your hd make copy.
Execute patch 4.08m

Download & install patch 4.10m.
Download & install patch 4.10.1m.
Download & install patch 4.11.

And yes... IL2: Cliffs of Dover can be played in single player mode. Any problems or other items can be found on the CloD thread page.
