Hey, I just purchased RB II from a fellow SimHQ member and was wondering what are the essential patches and downloads for this sim?

If you have RBII (not RB3D) then you need the 1.0.7.7 super patch and the 1.0.7.8 patch. You can find these by gong to http://www.sierra.com and looking under downloads then put rb3D in the search window.

BTW: The 1078 is a patch for multiplay

Salute Lucky_1!

Welcome to Red Baron.

When you have patched up to RB3d you might want to enhance your gaming experience with new terrain, planes, objects, graphics, FM....there is TONS of good stuff for Red Baron out there.

You can start your journey here, in the resources section of "Wings of Honor":
http://www.wingsofhonor.com/redbaron/resources/index.htm

This is the place containing almost every link/patch/addon you can imagine for Red Baron. On the main page of Wings of Honor there are also some primers on how to patch the game, how to set up for MP etc. Very recommended!

First thing to get is von Tom's Campaign Manager (also available over the above link) which is a MUST for easily loading and unloading patches.

If you are confused by the amount of available patches, here is what I use for single player game:

Major Patch (new planes, historic data, graphics...): Revenge of the Jastas (ROTJ) including Panama Red's FM/DM:
http://members.nbci.com/jvonhelton/revenge.htm

Promised Land's buildings and sounds:
http://www.wingwalkers.org/jasta1/newplmain.htm

Tom Winters terrains and dawns/sunsets:
http://www.interplanetary.freeserve.co.uk/

These is just my choice for the moment, there are MANY other excellent modifications and patches to try out.

Take some holiday (at least 4 weeks) and explore

Wow! Thanks again. I feel a little bit overwhelmed here, almost like the first time I got EAW and asked for some advice!

This looks like there is a good community here.

Just make small steps...and take your time.
Sooner or later you will use the links...you know you want.

Salute, Lucky_1

You're right, this is a great community...

...and when you feel like you're ready to try your hand at on-line dogfighting, be sure to check out my tutorial, MMP Primer For Computer Dummies (Like Me!). It'll shorten your learning curve by several months!

The document is housed over at Wings of Honor at http://www.wingsofhonor.com/redbaron/tutorials/mmpprimer.htm

Good luck, and good flying!
