@Hoplite: If you find San's FoV mod unstable, give Storebror's "FOV Changer Mod" a try. It's on the SAS1946 forum.

Prior to "IL-2: 1946" you could stack sequels on top of Forgotten Battles and top them off with content patches. However, the full "1946" release changed that because it came with so much additional content beyond the Forgotten Battles+Aces Expansion Pack+Pacific Fighters+Pe2 Peshka combination of addons that it effectively became the new start point for anybody wanting to use the 4.08m and higher patches.

In other words, if you have a pre-1946 version of IL-2 Sturmovik, Forgotten Battles or Pacific Fighters there is no way you can patch it up to where you can use the new 4.11m patch. You're best and only option is to purchase "IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946" which installs the full anthology of IL-2 content all at once as one complete and singular title, and then sequentially upgrade that version with all of the patches noted by EinsteinEP.

Excellent article Einstein. I flew some 4.11m IL-2 last night and I noticed two things,


1. Your own AI autopilot will still overheat your engine. Is it supposed to be like this? I would assume that your autopilot AI would know how to manage engine temp.

2. The 6DOF TrackIR movement works in the default cockpit view but not in the Shift-F1 "close up" view. I assume it's supposed to be this way?

I might give this a go and re-install IL-2 again.

However I have SoftTH multi screen now that only works in directx not Open GL.

How bad will it look in directx? Really ugly or is it just the perfect water I will lose going to directx?

I've never been able to stand Il-2 in DX. Always looked half-baked compared to OGL.

Damn game keeps crashing after 10 minutes frown

Is it unstable on win7 64?

Anyone else get through a long mission on 64bit?
