[REL] 4.12 - Readme
Dear IL-2 fans,

as usual, we present the Readme file for the next patch in advance, so you may get familiar with the upcoming fixes / features. The patch will also include a much more detailed features guide.

Please understand, that we can not name a definite release date by now. We are closing in for the final run anyway. ;)

Also note, that there might be small differences to the Readme file at the final release, but main features will for sure stay the same.

Thank you!

Team Daidalos


Il-2 Sturmovik: 1946



The current version 4.12 is not compatible with the previous versions of the flight simulator when playing over the network (Online). Both the server and client must have the appropriate versions in order to connect.

Attention: Version 4.12 is only for a merged 1946 version of the simulator of the proper version (FB+AEP+PF).

Add-On Installation Instructions (Please read carefully)

The Il-2 1946 add-on v.4.12 installs only over v.4.11.1 and v.4.11 versions.

In order to install this add-on, run the exe file and follow the on-screen instructions.

Please note that this add-on is impossible to install over stand alone Pacific Fighters.
