I am doing a fresh install of WOFF.

I have my security sw disabled

I plan to use the following order:

1) WOFF V1.0 [needs access to CFS V3.1 CD or install]
2) WOFF Skins Pack1
3) WOFF V2.0 expansion
4) WOFF Addon Pack1
5) WOFF Addon Pack1 "Fokker Scourge" Patch to V2.0 [or whatever is latest Addon Pack1 patch]
6) WOFF Patch V2.06 [or whatever is latest V2 patch]
7) WOFF Addon Pack2 "Balance of Power", requires V2.06 or later
8) WOFF Addon Pack2 "Balance of Power" patch to V2.0 [or whatever is the lastest Addon Pack2 patch]

EDIT: I updated the above order after the Addon Pack2 "Balance of Power" would not install because I had not installed V2.06 yet. After installing V2.06, Addon Pack2 installed without issue. CFS version corrected. Moved Skins pack after V1.0 install in case anything later tweaks them [thanks Pol for this information]. Also, since the patches contain all previous patches, I added the bit about the latest patch.

[EDIT POL:
NOTE THIS IS OUT OF DATE FOR WOFF UE, please see the new WOFF UE FAQ for details:
(section 2,3,4)
http://www.overflandersfields.com/Downloads/FAQ%20WOFF%20UE.pdf

For WOFF 1, 2, 3 users only see the older WOFF FAQ:
http://www.overflandersfields.com/Downloads/FAQ%20WOFF.pdf }

It looks good to me, I really don't think the Skin and Addon packs have to be installed in any particular order.

Yes it's a good order.

Although note CFS3 needs to be v3.1 (I have never heard of 1.5 CFS3!)

Everything after WOFF Expansion (patched to v.206) can be installed in any order, then each of their respective patches can be installed anyhow.

But skins pack best to install early in case a few have been tweaked in addons or patches.


This is also in the FAQ now in Section 4.

Thanks for the correction on CFS, I was working from memory and everybody knows it is the fir... er, second thing to go. It is good to know about the skins.

I guess I need to download the FAQ again, I should have thought about that. sigh RTFM

Are Fokker Scourge and Balance of Power required updates to bring WOFF up t date.

Just bought WOFF ver 1 and skin pack on a whim.
WOFF ver 2 is probably on the horizon once I've given ver 1 the once over. However WOFF ver 1 and skins cost me over 30.
WOFF 2 plus the addons is quite a pricey package and I'd rather just do the main ver 2 pack for now.

The Fokker Scourge can be added to WOFF ver 1.26.
Balance of Power requires the WOFF 2 expansion pack be purchased and installed before it can be installed.

I had hundreds of enjoyable hours with just WOFF 1 before the add ons and expansions came out. I guess I miss understood the question about 'required', maybe I still do.

They aren't required but really do add to the fun. That skin pack you have is a huge plus in IDing planes without the labels on.

OK so the install path to a full WOFF version from scratch is along these lines

Start with
  • Aquire CFS3 ver 3 or 3.1, if using ver 3 install and update to CFS3 ver 3.1. if you have CFS3 ver 3.1 you don't need to install, just have the disc handy

  • WOFF Ver 1
    • Buy and Install WINGS: OVER FLANDERS FIELDS v1.0 (needs access to CFS V3.1 CD or install)
    • Download and apply UPDATE v 1.26
    • Optional - Buy and install WOFF Skins Pack1
    • Optional - Buy and install WOFF Add-on Pack 1 "Fokker Scourge", Patch add-on to V3.0

Which provides a full Ver 1 experience

Then
  • WOFF Ver 2
    • Buy and install WINGS: OVER FLANDERS FIELDS EXPANSION to 2.0
    • Download and Apply Patch Ver 2.10
    • Optional - Buy and install WOFF Add-on Pack 2 "Balance of Power", patch add-on to V3.0

5. Install WOFF EXPANSION (also takes WOFF1 to v2.0)
6. Download and Apply Patch Ver 2.16 (or current one if later)

10. Install WOFF EXPANSION 3 (also takes WOFF2.x to v3.0a) [you need WOFF2 already installed here see above]
11. Download and Apply Patch Ver 3.1 (or current one available)
if you have the following already installed previously simply install the patches for them instead but..
12. Optional - Buy and install WOFF Add-on Pack 2 "Balance of Power", download its patch add-on to V7.0 if you didn't buy it already
13. Optional - Buy and install WOFF Add-on Pack 3 "Motley Crew", download its patch add-on to V4.0 if you didn't buy it already

I have installed 'Balance of Power' and am patching to V5.0 Just out of interest, how can I tell that 'Balance of Power' is installed? I remember that 'Hat in the Ring' changed some pictures so maybe there is some indication of BofP?

In WOFF click on "Workshops", look in there bottom left it teels you which addons (Skins add-on won't show there)...

Also go to QC, if you have new aircraft to fly, as per the add-on list, then you have the add on.

Thanks Pol - I was thinking of the new aircraft as well, but I'm not actually flying any of them yet. I have too many others to have a go at and that could take me a few years until I am a old_simmer

This seems a bit off to me ... should this say 'Step 6"?
