Since my custom modded 1946 installation gave me an incurable CTD, I'm thinking about going 1946+HSFX6.

I've got ~14 GB available on my Windows partition.

Is that enough?

Uninstalling something else is not an option.



- Edit:
Excuse the dumb thread, but required space for installation is something which is normally found in the manual - and in HSFX' case, it isn't.

A USB stick an option? IL2 Portable. biggrin

I think my HSFX-only install is under 13GB.

That would be an option, BUT USB 2.0 is slower than even the slowest laptop HDDs...


(IL-2 is very portable indeed. Just copy the folder and that's about it.)


Can anyone check the actual size, pretty please?


(I've heard that 1946 with UP3 and DBW takes up about 25 Gb...*Shudders*)

Oh, once you start adding, the size balloons.

Any nonessentialities one could remove?


Probably not any planes as that would certainly mess up some index file somewhere.


Or any PTO stuff (I never fly there anyway)?

The whole IL-2 folder or only the "HSFX" folder?

That would be the whole IL2 4.11 + HSFX 6.0.17 install size.

Although he might have some paintschemes, tracks and screenshots in it too. I just checked my clean HSFX backup: 11.1GB size, 11.2GB disk space, 27542 files, 1056 folders.

Mine is 14G.. but a lot of that is probably skins.. I have a few extra mods in.. I think the standard HSFX install is around 11G like shades said..


Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

My installation of '46+HSFX is a little over 23gb, but I'm a skin-whore...

Skins and missions are what make your install size balloon, I have 2 installs, the smaller is 12.9 Gigs and that install is about average size with only a few skins and missions. I would do a thorough cleaning and try to compress as much stuff as I could when I had space limitations in the old days, but having only 2 Gigs of HD left to spare ain't much and there is an update coming soon.
