I have just bought IL-2 FB and am totally confused. After installing "out-of-the-box" which patches do I need to add to get the best out of what is available - or does installing "Aces" take care of everything ?

If you just have IL2-FB you need to patch it to version 1.22

If you have AEP you need to forget about the FB patches and patch to 2.01

The downloads are on the il2sturmovik.com site.

Yes it is confusing!

Install FB 'clean' and then install AEP that will cover all the patching for FB, only thing to do is install AEP patch 2.01 for online gaming.
Download it here : http://www.3dgamers.com/dl/games/il2sturmovik2/Missions/patchil2_aep_201.exe.html

AEP gets you up to 2.0, but 2.01 (which you have to have AEP already installed for) will give you the Spitfire Mk IX, and some other goodies, can be downloaded from the Ubi site.

So, you can install AEP over the basic FB, and then add 2.01, and you'll be all caught up with the rest of us, awaiting the next patch (in two weeks, according to my sources).

Installed AEP over IL2-FB now ready for 2.01. If the AEP package had stated "This upgrades IL2_FB to version 2.0 and incorporates all previous patches" it would have avoided any confusion -- now comes the learning bit!
I will be reading all posts which I am sure will add a great deal to the official manual. Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the forum fligtbuff. Your going to love this simm.

Now I must confess, like the previous poster. I'm really just trying to figure out how others are getting in GD and I still have an error message unless I click on the last post.

You really will love this simm, it rocks.

I found out you have to bookmark one of these pages and use the previous/next topic button.
