    Hello folks I stumbled across your forum and am posting in hopes of getting some answers

    I bought the game a long time ago but was never able to play online.. there was no server list or anything of the sort and you had to manually enter an I.P. so I never played online. So how DO I play it online?

    P.S. I'm installing it again it as I type.

    I also did a quick search of the forums and didn't return any useful results, so maybe this is just a nooby question :p

    Your best bet is to download Hyperlobby. Most of the servers are 4.09 so you will have to download the official patch for 4.09 before you will be able to get online.

    You have two big options: Hyperlobby (the most popular) and XFire, both are admins that you must install in your PC and open every time you want play online, then select the game (having installed 1946 you must choose "Forgotten Battles" in Hyperlobby, don´t remember about XFire). Once started HL, at the left row you will see all the servers, how many players actually are in there and the max players admitted. Click on one of them and then "join to..."
    As Beaupower said, if your game version is not the same as the server you want come in, you wan´t enter. The most popular today is 4.09 m.
    Good luck.

    I have, straight out of the box, vanilla IL2 Sturmovik, not forgotten battles, not 1946.

    Err, then you'll have to get 1946 and patch it up to 4.09m or else you'll have a very hard time finding players online. (I don't play online since I have Pacific Fighters 4.04 and people hardly play it. :oops:)

    No worries, quite easy to find 1946 in stores. They are quite cheap, cost around 10 to 15 dollars.

    One more thing: as I remember, the game must be patched sequentially: you must start applying first patches (4.04 or something) until you install 4.09. Otherwise, it is not effective.
    Cheers.

    Hello folks!
    Been a while since I've been here, but I finally bought 1946 through Steam. Couldn't believe that no one had a physical copy of the game, bestbuy, buybacks, gamestop, funcoland, the record exhange, babbages, even walmart lol none of them had it. I prefer to have a physical copy but Steam download was the only one I could find...

    Anyway, I have 1946 now maybe I'll see some of you online!
    I'll be the burning pile of wreckage 1500ft below you...
