Just got an old copy, is an amazing sim, never knew there was something as real as FS9 or even FSX... Win XP rules! :)

Would be nice just to just play pseudo-ace from the start.

If you really want to enjoy IL2:1946, here is what you do.

Get a copy that is either upward or downward patched to version 4.12, then go to the site sas1946.com. You can get an up-to-date version that runs on Windows 10 right now on GOG.com for $2.49, totally legal and copy-protection free. Regular price on both GOG and Steam is still a mere $10.

The guys on sas1946.com have patched and modded that program to an incredible degree with updates to graphics, mission builders, and over 1,000 different aircraft from pre-WWI to the 1980s. You will have to download many gigabytes of patches but if you get the full B.A.T. package it is pretty much turn-key, as long as you follow the directions. Countless missions and campaigns are included with the patches and/or on the web site.

The game still plays very well. It ain't the current-gen IL-2 or DCS, but it is unbeatable for variety of aircraft, maps, and scenarios.

Happy shooting!
