Dear IL-2 fans.

On behalf of 1C:Maddox Games and Daidalos Team, we are pleased to present you the patch 4.12.

The development of 4.12 patch took us once again much longer time to complete than expected. Our main focus this time was on delivering some of the most requested features plus AI & mission building improvements. Development was started by gathering a list of most requested features from several forums and trying to figure out what we can implement with our small team. This time we also included some visual improvements (in form of effects, textures & UI changes) instead of the usual simulation & realism tweaks only. And of course the patch would not be complete without few new flyable & AI planes. All of them our dear favorites that we've hoped to fly for the past decade or so. For example the Curtiss Hawk-75 external model was delivered to Maddox Games almost exactly ten years ago by a member of our team. Now ten years later it is time for the cockpit. So you can expect to see Beaufort cockpit in 2023 (or in two weeks).

As with the previous patches we would like to ask the IL-2 community members to please report any relevant issues or errors we did not catch through our beta testing process. We will open new 4.12 debugging threads soon.

Of course you can also use our DT email for the bug reports:
daidalos.team@gmail.com

We would like to thank all those who made their mirror servers available for the 4.12 patch download. Please note that Mission4Today download links are available for its registered members only.

Congratulations and thanks .I have been playing IL2 since around 2004 and it makes me very sad to see what became of it over the last 2 years .I am still mostly using the original game .CLOD SHOULD NOT have been allowed die in favour of a game engine that was clearly far inferior .I wish all involved with original IL2 the best .As I already own ROF and rarely bother with it I cant see how it can suceed. I could be playing IL2 4.24 in ANOTHER ten years time!Thanks again ,John 42 Ireland

Quote... CLOD SHOULD NOT have been allowed die in favour of a game engine that was clearly far inferior

CLOD is far from dying and is at the moment moving on with a new chapter with the Battle of Stalingrad!

But back to 4.12... Il-2 FB/1946 has come a very long way and TD has just provided a very important upgrade to the game itself. Have to say... more than just adding aircraft, they have updated the core of IL-2. After all the changes and updates over the last 10yr's, this is probably the best upgrade to the game since AE and PF.

Il-2 or CLOD dead... not yet! LoL

I'm guessing that 4.12 is not compatible with the current mod packs, is that so?

While there are some very worthwhile upgrades being made by dedicated amateurs for CLOD the Battle of Stalingrad game is not a 'blood' broother/sister of it .Rather it is based on an old game ROF.The 'leaked' video is frankly not much of a game raiser compared with IL2 1946...compared with CLOD it looks awful. :-( Now maybe Im wrong and the new mod team ARE doing Eastern Front content for CLOD down the road -if so i will be delighted -but the 'new' Battle of Stalingrad project seriously fails to excite me .I mightnt even bother buying it if its dear.

I don't know what IL2 you have been looking at but even stock it is great.. with HSFX it is fantastic.. As for CoD ... CoD is what it is .. it was what it was when it was released.. that has more bearing on why it is in it's current state. Also .. for the record CoD was not abandoned by 1C ( allowed to die .. is too strong because while it may not have the full developer support it once had it is far from dead... or dieing..) in favor of IL2 .. it was abandoned by 1C because it had over half a decade of support and at the time of it's release there was not a lot to show for it..

I think BoS s a descendant of L2 but not a continuation of CoD.

Not yet but SAS has a mod activator out already.. I think HSFX will take a few months so we are probably looking at end of summer early fall but I am not sure. Based on what I read at the 242 site CC said 2-3 months after 4.12 is released..

The first part I agree with ..BoS is more related to IL2 and RoF . As for the rest of your post ... I don't know about all that. Of course that is your opinion which you are entitled to but I think BoS looks pretty good for an Alpha and I also think it looks like a step up generationally from IL2.

It will be using RoF and CloD.

Only some of the models from CoD's BoM will be used.. the rest is all new and from an RoF code base.

I have version 4.11.1 installed now with no mods. However I cannot get V 4.12 to install, running windows 7/ 64 bit. Even if I manually choose where to install, no luck. The download from Mission appears to be successful. Anyone else experiencing this ? If so, what have you done to install ?

That might be the source of the problem then...Windows security feature preventing any program changes. You could try creating a new folder ( I just call mine Games) and move IL2 46 there and then try to update again into that folder. No need to re-install...it should just drop in the new folder when you move it.. That's what I did when I got this game and installed it on my current PC.

Yeah that was what I was getting at... I can't help but think that this is related to that Read Only attribute bug in W7. That they would have folders set at Read Only as default is mind boggling to me..

Ubisoft isn't selling IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 anymore and I don't know where you can download it from their site. I do know where you can get another digital download version for under ten dollars though.

The Good Old Games digital download version doesn't have any type of DRM and it won't give these types of headaches in the future.

To date "no one" that I have recommended this version to has been unable to get it working.

What is the difference between 4.12 and 4.12m

FoolTrottel
07-01-2013, 09:51 AM
4.12 does not exist, correct version name is 4.12m.

Or, if you consider the missing 'm' from '4.12' as a typo, then they are the same. :cool:

I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank Team Daidalos for another outstanding patch!
Special thanks for the Mixture axis and the wide screen enhancements, and so much more.
IL-2 continues to be my favorite combat flight sim because I can actually play it on my computer, unlike other eye candy sims.
You know, being able to count the grasshoppers in the swaying grass isn’t a bad thing, but that’s not what I play a combat flight sim for. One thing for sure though, If Team Daidalos decides to do the swaying grass thing, you can bet your /// it will run on our rigs just fine!
IMHO, IL-2 (1946) is demonstrably the best engine of it’s kind and I want to salute everyone from Oleg on down who ever had a hand in it’s development!
Lucky for other sim makers that IL-2 stayed in the late 30’s thru mid 40’s era of aircraft. There would have otherwise been a serious monopoly.
Rock on T. D.

I couldn't have said that better myself.. It amazes me some of the stuff they are still pulling out of this engine..

I think you'll need 4.11 as well. Your career will continue from the same point after the two patches, but be warned the AI are much tactically improved. They now know how to do a proper scissors and are pretty good at energy fighting.

This patching guide at M4T will help you get you installation current.
IL-2 1946 Installation and Patching Guide: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Knowledge_Base&op=show&kid=584

I would make a copy of your current v4.10.1 installation and patch it instead so that you will have the ability to revert to v4.10.1 if you don't like how the campaign plays in v4.12m.
Just copy the entire IL-2 Sturmovik folder and you shouldn't have any problems patching the copy. You will also need to add a new shortcut on your desktop that points to the updated copy of your game.
