Not sure about your first question as I don't have a disc to try.I assume you want to keep your current install?

As for mods,if it's SP you are into then look up 'Dark Blue World' and 'The Full Monty' all available at the SAS web-site.They transform the game,lots of eye-candy and new features.. http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php

If it's MP then I don't know,I only play SP,sorry.

Is there any sign of a new DBW version?
1.7 seems to be the latest but that one uses Patch 4.10m what is way behind the current 4.12.

Greetings mein Komplotten!

I as well am just getting back into it as the Mighty Luftwaffe has called me back into active duty. Seems those pointy winged und cloth covered Tommie krates are causing some problems. This will be rectified if I can just get up to speed.

I installed from the 1946 disk, updated to 8 and then to 9. Everything worked as I progressed with no crack installed. Install 10 but same 9 on lower left. Install 10.1 and same thing, 9 on lower left. banghead

Please help as the Tommies are attacking France und this can't happen!!!!!!!

Sounds like you let it install into the Program Files folder. Move it out of the Program Files folder into a Games folder on the C drive and everything should work fine and dandy.

Quote:
The installation file path for the DVD defaults to:
(32 bit systems): C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946
(64 bit systems): C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946

Installation Tip:
**Changing "Program Files" to "Games" when you are installing the sim will make the patching process have fewer problems on machines that are using any Windows operating systems after WinXP.
Modified Filepath: C:\Games\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946
(Use the same modified filepath for both 32 and 64 bit versions.)

Source: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Knowledge_Base&op=show&kid=584

Moving the Ubisoft folder and its content to the Games folder will not affect the game. Just make sure to use the browse feature in the patches to patch the new location instead of the Default location. You will also need to alter the file path in the game icon on your desktop to the new location or you will get an error when you click on it.

ACHHHHHHHHH! Still a no go. Here we go again and I want to thank you for your patience. When I'm up and running I will not notify the Gestapo about you! MY LIPS ARE SEALED!!!!!!!!!

Anyways, here we go again.
Install the sim onto my F: drive f:IL-2 Sturmovik 1946

Run it und all ist gut
Then I install 1.08m into the same IL2 folder, run it und still gut mit 1.08 in lower left.
Install 1.09 same way und all ist still gut mit 1.09m in lower left.
NOW, when I install 4.10, no asking for copy overs, it just installs but when I run the game, still 1.09m in the lower left.

I do not want to go to the Russian Front but Fat Man ist making threats.

Please help!

Kraut, if you notice the post date immediately above your first on the 26th please note well over a year had passed since.

This guide is kind of out dated now and I think you want to get to the latest official version which is now 4.12.2, right?
There is an option here that will update the game to 4.12.2 from 4.07:
http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=4469

There is much more information about IL21946 on the SAS site here:
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php
Check the SAS Essentials section of the forum.


This link will take you to the topic mega patch topic.
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,38443.0.html

It is a lot to download but may be your best option.

When you get 4.12.2 up and running there are some excellent mods you can add but that leads to a whole other il2 1946 world

Good Luck.

Finally got it. Thanks for all your help!

Now, how can I get The Channel Map to work on this set up now?

Time to mod Kraut.

http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1813
http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1814
More info on these:
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?board=176.0

If you have been away awhile, the changes and new options can be overwhelming and there is anew mega pack in the works that will make them all available.

You may have more luck at the SAS site, they are home to all things IL2, mainly offline content but info on HSFX, the online addon mod.
