    It isnt the deveklopers fault that most people want to get the most out of the sim.
    Either fly or dont fly.... I recommend you suck it up and wait till November and get the IL2 Sturmovik 1946 add on which is all of the add ons in one DVD.

    If you ran a business, and could get all your customers who play online to pay another $20 just for the privileage.. wouldnt you do it??
    And like Bearcat says, most people are more then willing to pony up and unfortunately the people most likely to do so (the hardcore fans) are the ones most likely to be running servers..

    hell they could release another "add on" every couple months(as they have been), knowing anyone that wanted to play online would pretty much have to buy
    Im in the same boat you are im stuck on 4.04m until i can find a copy of pe2(the ebay near me dosnt seem to have it).. i have no interest in pe2, but i want to play online so...

    becase the majority of players moved to 4.05m, one way or another

    if you think there is still a sufficient need for 4.04m servers, you can always try running one, instead of blaming other players (not the server admins), who moved on to 4.05m in large numbers by now

    there is still a 2.04 server in HL I believe

    you may also look into Ubi.com lobby as well

    All servers for IL2 are privately run, most games servers are privately run in fact.

    As someone who runs a server, not for IL2 unfortunately, I can only say, if you don't like it, run your own.

    It will cost you around $200 to $400 a month for a decent opteron with suitable bandwidth.

    Good luck.

    seems like if you rich and have loads of money its easy to say, beside the I am unable to find the patch in the first place to buy or even borrow, it seems, that Money talks here as well,
    I dont have 200 0r 300 to run a server or enough bandwith so seems I am stuck with A USA server shame,
    o well wonder if battle of britain will be the same when that comes out next year

    Five extra planes and four extremely detailed campaigns plus a few extra skins and some new vehicle objects. Its not all about the multiplayer.

    Backwards compatibility between versions is impossible. Its pretty hard to deal with when objects between versions aren't the same...you have to try and take this into account when even you're mission building. Storm Clouds Part 2 for instance I built largely with 4.05 and I realized that I had started to use some objects from 4.05...which I'm now removing to keep the 4.04 folks happy. But how would the patches be backwards compatible when there are new objects in the sim? I'd love to see better interoperability between patches but when you deal with that in a multiplayer environment...I've never seen that done. Not with the big WarCraft and StarCraft games, not with the different versions of Doom and Quake...never seen one.

    The choice of the server administrators is the same. They are privately owned servers...they get to do exactly what they want with their servers running whatever version they want to.

    I would suggest you give UK-Dedicated1 a try. Its still 4.04 and I think it'll stay that way for a while yet.
