IL-2 1946

Recommended Posts

Is there any PC version of this that will work on the awful Windows 10, I've tried loading this and several other Ubisoft games and none of them work

I cant speak for IL2 46, and was going to ask why would you want to even try when the modern IL2 is so damn good with windows 10 ;)

Then i noticed you were having problems with other ubisoft games, and wondered if you might have an underlying technical problem that maybe I or someone else can help with.

If you have just installed windows 10 recently, have you re-installed your GPU drivers ? and also have you installed ubisofts game launcher. "Uplay"

The original IL-21946 had a odd problem with the Setupfile but there were two of them on the disk.  Use the second one and Il2 will play perfectly on Win 10.

 

If your going to play the older IL-2 I highly recommend you download the CUP community mod.  There is a lot of different modules.  It's unfortunate there aren't that many MP servers and players anymore.  During it's hay days which lasted oh about a decade you could find close to a 1000 people flying.  There were plenty of campaign and competitive servers as well.  You just can't beat the shear volume of maps planes and variants you can fly with the mods.

Don't get me wrong I want IL2 via these new versions to continue to grow as well and yes it's time to move on but it will be several years before we see the scale of the original sim.

Recently purchased again, this time from GOG. Works flawlessly in Windows 10. 

 

The lack of DRM is very nice. Also, both new and old versions of the game are provided for compatibility with your favourite mods. 

 

I agree that B.A.T. is the best modpack. It's a very large download, but the amount of content is spectacular.

IL2 1946, GOG Edition, works on Ubuntu Linux variants too, using wine or playonlinux to get it running well. Didn´t try to mod it or go online thought.
