Hey Sixstrings,

I'm in the same boat as you. getting back into il2 after a mega break. I followed some links to the BAT mega patch. There's like 12 parts. They say run it from a clean install of il2 1946. does that mean don't install any patches but simply run the BAT setup on the DVD version?

thanks

yarbles

Head over to the SAS site and grab the mega patch to 4.1.2.2 has to be that version and there's 29 parts to the Base install..They have a torrent link and just unzip them and run the first file it unpacks it all..I unzip them to a folder called test and open that up and just copy them into the IL-2 BAT install,,,Here's the 29 part setup..Read the page I've linked it's a real easy install If you take a bit of time..When you get the main part installed ...Read the forums on how to set up the newer version Better to join their forums and get expert help..And most folks don't like doing it but reading the forums and the manual helps..just was reading six strings earlier post and he's right get it patched to 4.12.2 and make a copy in case something goes amiss then you can use the backup folder that's at a clean 4.12.2

I'm also beginning my return to IL2 after many years.
Working my way through the BAT downloads now.
I see that the DH Hornet and Tigercat are available on SAS. Great news!

Well that was an epic fail...My controllers were all messed up with defaults and I couldn't get anything squared away. So I deleted it all but now I want to give it another shot. Will take a look from all these forums that were linked and see what there is to do to make it hum like it used to many years ago. BTW it's still one of the best looking flight sims that is out there today even after all these years.

I agree with 33Lima,,And with all the great mods BAT,,VP Mod Pack and others it gains new life....I also fly Cliffs Of Dover which is sweet looking with the Tean Fusion mod also EAW is light years ahead of the original,,It's time well invested to check out the mods and take the time to try one out ..folks are ready to help at the forums

Also thinking about getting back into Il2 1946. Mostly interested in QM 1v1’s. Problem that seemed to recur though was mission records that would fail during replays giving inaccurate playback. If I am not alone in having had that issue, has the problem been solved yet?

No
The ntrk versions are better than the trk versions but both can have wonky playbacks.

I was downloading BAT. There is a Checkpoint Charlie Expansion. Can you folks tell me exactly what the Checkpoint Charlie Expansion adds to the base BAT install? Also, can the Operation Sealion Expansion be installed along with the Checkpoint Charlie Expansion?

Checkpoint Charlie is the compilation of all the service packs, bug fixes and general clean up of the basic install. Operation Sealion is more of the same and adds a BoB campaign as well. IIRC CC goes first and then OS.

+1 for returning to 1946 after years

if I only want to focus on WW2, should I still download and install BAT or only patch the current game to 4.13.4?

Depending on your hard drive space you don't have to choose between one or the other you can have both on your system.

This patching guide at M4T will help you determine which patches you need for several version of the game.

Sorry, that question is beyond my skills. I was always just happy to get everything running fairly reasonably.
Starting a new thread with your computer details, CPU, Graphics card, OS, etc would probably be a better idea than having it hidden in this one though.
