** Updating from 4.101m UP 3.0 RC4 to 4.11.1 HSFX 6.0.1 **
« on: October 17, 2012, 07:38:36 pm »
Hi all,

We are currently testing 4.11.1 with HSFX 6.0.1 on our test server "DutchArcade1" which will probably be online a few nights a week, and
will only be available trough direct connect in your IL-2 Sturmovik game.
(PM RandomTox or SaltyDogg in HyperLobby or e-mail for the direct connect IP address.)

You too can join, but first you will have to update your IL-2 Sturmovik 4.101m UP 3.0 RC4 installation
so that you can also join and test 4.11.1 with HSFX 6.0.1 on our test server !

Here is the complete HOW TO:

** First of all, make a copy of your IL-2 Sturmovik 4.101m UP 3.0 RC4 directory and rename it so that you can easily know
which directory is the 4.11.1 with HSFX 6.0.1 (ex. E:\Games\IL-2 Sturmovik 4.11.1) **


** In the directory you wish to update to IL-2 Sturmovik 4.11.1 with HSFX 6.0.1 you will have to disable UP 3.0 in JSGME(IL2-UP) **

Note: you will need around 11.0 GB of drive space to perform all downloads and installations.

* 1.6 GB - IL-2 1946 - 4.11 (for download and installation)
* 110 MB - IL-2 1946 - 4.11.1 (for download and installation)
* 8.9 GB - HSFX 6.0 (for download and installation)
* 360 MB - HSFX 6.0.1 (for download and installation)
* 11 MB - HSFX Auto updater (for download and installation)

So first you would have to:

1. Download these files:
- IL-2 1946 - 4.11
- IL-2 1946 - 4.11.1
- HSFX 6.0 (Download all 9 files)
- HSFX 6.0.1
- HSFX Auto Updater


2 - Apply patches:

- Apply patch 4.11.1

3. Install "HSFX 6.0":
- Once the download of the 9 "HSFX 6.0" files is complete open the folder where the downloaded files where
stored in.
- Run HSFX_Version_6_0.EXE to start the installation process. (the rest of the files will follow automatically)
- Use the "Change" button (in the "Choose Destination Location" dialog box) to select your IL-2 game folder and continue with the installation.
- Choose "Install the Personal PC Version"


4. Install "HSFX 6.0.1":
- Open the folder where the HSFX 6.0.1 install file was downloaded in.
- Run HSFX_Version_6_0_Patch_1.exe to start the installation process.
- Use the "Change" button (in the "Choose Destination Location" dialog box) to select your IL-2 game folder and continue with the installation.
- Choose "Install the Personal PC Version"

5. Install "HSFX Auto Updater":
- Open the folder where the HSFX Auto Updater install file was downloaded in.
- Run HSFX_Auto_Updater.exe to start the installation process.
- Use the "Change" button (in the "Choose Destination Location" dialog box) to select your IL-2 game folder and continue with the installation.
- Choose "Install the Personal PC Version"

6. Run "HSFX Auto Updater":
- Open your IL-2 Sturmovik 4.11.1 HSFX 6.0.1 directory
- Look for "HSFX_Client_Updater.exe" and run it !
- The update currently is arround 570 MB (6.0.16)

Installing of the necessary files is completed !

7. Activating "HSFX 6.0.1":
- In your updated IL-2 game folder run JSGME and Activate "HSFX history mod" and "Expert mode" from the menu from left to right.


Now you are ready to join and fly on our IL-2 Sturmovik 4.11.1 HSFX 6.0.1 Dogfight test server "DutchArcade1" !

Seems no surprise to most of you, but we are NOT running the test server anymore for some time.
We are waiting on the new UltraPack to come out. 4.11.1 does not support MDS. Which means no moving AI (planes, ships and troops)
Just wanted to let you know in case you were wondering what was going on.
