Hello Skycat,


Following the most recent update by EnjoyR (patch for no add-ons version 1.92), do you think one can update 1946 and get all free DGen campaigns without the need to install your BOE update first, but just using EnjoyR's patch?

Cheers,

Vince

Hi . . . great resource. I just started a new USN campaign out of Tulagi with the new Enjoyr patch. After having tried DCG for some time (a great program), I still find I prefer DGEN so this patch is a great thing for me.

For some reason though, I can't get that skins link to work for me. It takes me to this page:

http://nahraj.cz/down/498209598/EnjoyrPatchAskins.zip.html

. . . but I don't get a download link. Any ideas?

Nice job Skycat

Now that I'm home I'm having a bit of trouble here.
I can't seem to find this file at said page, and its a language I can't read or translate with google.

2. EnJoyrPatchA_skins (190 Mb). This patch alone makes life so much easier for you! The self-installing program puts all the skins where they need to go. Before, you would have had to sort out all these skin textures yourself and manually put them in the correct subfolders. BTW, the campaigns will work fine without custom skins, but skins make the campaigns so much more authentic and immersive.

Thanks for keeping this guide updated . its quite intimidating for returnees like me. Its given me a new lease of life with the RAF in Africa. Thanks so much to all involved.

Happy Happy, Joy Joy!

Last night I was finally able to get IL2-MAT Manager to work in Windows VISTA. Unfortunately, to make this happen I had to completely uninstall IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 and then reinstall it outside of VISTA's "Program Files" folder. After that, I reinstalled IL2-MAT Manager outside of the Program Files folder as well. Doing this now allows both programs to update their various configuration files when changes are made. It seems that VISTA is naturally overprotective of anything located in the Program Files folder.

Similarly, a few nights ago I achieved success with installing Uber-Quick Mission Generator by installing it outside of the Program Files folder. Unlike with IL2-MAT Manager, UQMG worked for me even though 1946 was (at that time) still in the default location in the Program Files folder. This threw me off the the trail for finding a solution to getting IL2-MAT Manager to operate, and I wasted a lot of time installing and reinstalling IL2-MAT Manager components. \:\(

Lesson learned: if using Windows VISTA, don't install anything IL-2 related into the Program Files folder. I've updated the opening post with this advice.

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;

200.100.50.25:21000

You can type;

mypc.dyndns.org:21000

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; http://www.dyndns.com/services/dns/dyndns/

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.

The link to the latest DGen version seems dead, just thought you should know.

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