The second disk is a bonus DVD, not necessary for the game.

Did you run il2setup.exe before launching the game, a program contained in the game's root folder?

Maybe you should run it again.

Hello everyone,

Is there a no-cd patch for the UK version? Securerom is having trouble reading the disk and it takes me five or so tries before the sim will actually load.

Just a note on MultiPlayer.
If you're not a HyperLobbie person, and want to host, obviously you need to open port 21000 to your Router/Firewall/PC if you want to be a server.

Another tip, Magnum and I tested a Dynamic DNS client today, and you can type in DNS names instead of IP addresses in the join screen. So instead of typing an IP and port;

You can type;

The host just starts a free dynamic DNS client beforehand or have a Firewall/Router that supports Dynamic DNS directly. You can read up on Dynamic DNS here;

Hi What are the ports needed for 1946?? I reaqd here that Port 21000 TCP/UDP is needed what other Ports are used, It should be put in the Front Page Under Part VI:Online Multiplay.

Please Dont reccomend I look in the Manual I Don't have this sim I just need to know the Ports Used for Online Multiplay.

Thanks! This is just what I was wondering today. I just bought IL2 1946 after about a 2 year break from flight sims in general and I am looking forward to flying again soon.

I'll check it and remove the link if necessary. The most recent DGen.exe is now also included in Enjoyr's patch, BTW.
Remove before flight
