Red face [beginner question]How to update Patch (by order)?

Hi,

I bought the COD at last week though Steam.Before that I just think Steam will update to latest version automatically.
When I run the game I found it still stop in 1.05 15950, this version always meet the launcher crashes problem.


I found the post at May 05 for PATCH v1.06.17582 : "the infamous launcher crashes have been fixed"
Now, the latest patch is v.1.07.18301.


My question is:
If I want use the latest version, should I need patch the v1.06 first? or Just patch v.1.07.18301 directly ?

Does the latest patch "Cover" all old patches?


sounds stupid question, but I really don't know how should I do.

Thanks

It's not like 1946 where you had to install them in order.

Let steam update your game fully to get the latest official patch, and then install the latest beta patch. That's it.

Hi MIRGERVIN

I assume that you are referring to the latest beta patch? Download the patch from here, then extract it to somewhere convenient (like your Desktop). The extracted folder (‘Parts’) must then be copied to your game folder to over-write the existing one. If you wish to make a backup, simply copy the existing ‘Parts’ folder to some backup location before over-writing it. If you then wish to revert to the previous version, rename the updated ‘Parts’ folder to something else (like ‘Parts18301’) and copy the original back. You can then swop between the two versions by renaming the folders in turn. You can also revert to the latest official version using Steam to verify the game files.

It is also a good idea to delete the contents of the cache folder when updating to the beta version (and back again if required). The cache is in your ‘Documents\1C Softclub\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\Cache\Shaders’ folder – I can’t remember the exact folder names as I am at the office at the moment. The game will re-create the cache when it is run again.

You can download the latest betapatch here, just avoid the oron.com download link as it sucks :

http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/showthread.php?t=32916

How to install the beta :
1) Have Steam verify integrity of local files (to get back to last official version)
2) Go to your documents\1c softclub\IL-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover folder and go into the cache folder. Delete everything in there (the game will rebuild it based on the new version next time you run the sim).
3) Extract the beta patch in the game folder (c:\whatever_you_named_it\steam\steamapps\common\I L-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover) and let it overwrite anything it wants to overwrite
4) Run the sim and load a quickmission to force it to rebuild the cache.
5) Restart the game

(yes this how-to was stolen from Septic who, i think, stole it from Blackdog ;p )

Just remember it is a beta and as such has some known bugs, most notably with trees only being drawn for a short distance and the 100oct planes being difficult to start online.

If it messes something up for you, just repeat step 1 to get back to the last official version.

One other thing - once you've installed the beta patch and cleared your cache, if you are having stuttering/slow downs online you can try JTDawg's fix if needed.
