I've been trying all day to load IL2 Sturmovik 1946 with updates to 4.10.1m on a dell laptop. I have had mixed luck. I can load the disk 4.07m fine. But every time I try to load either the Mega mod or the individual mods... there are four files that get in the way...
IL2_core.dll
IL2_corep4.dll
mg_snd.dll
mg_snd_sse.dll

What's the deal...
My laptop has the Intell 1-5 chip with 4 megs of RAM and a decent video card. I ran the game after the disk install and it worked as advertised...

Anybody familiar with this problem... please help?
Bonz... Sad

I reloaded the entire program from 4.07m (disk) to 4.10.1m one update at a time... running the program at each step. Then added the no-disk execute file and my standard tailored Config file... After adjusting the resolution to a lower compatible value it now works as advertized. The only problem I still have is my USER profiles are not visible in the program even though I copied them to the USER folder... any suggestions for why this is happening?

If you copied the users and not the entire Users folder my guess is that you did not update the all.ini list?

Standard Filepath: C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\Users\all.ini

When you open the all.ini file you will see all of your pilots listed like this.
Code::
[list]
  doe John Mad Doe
  washington Jeff Ice\u0020Man Washington
  smith Tom\t Snake Smith
  carl Lewis Snake Carl
  hill Henry Viper Hill
  doe1 John QMB Doe
  hill1 Benny Wildman Hill
[current]
  5

Add your users to the list and they should be shown in the ingame Pilots list. You must make sure to add all of the usermade campaigns and DGen campaigns that the pilots you are adding have been using or the first time you try to use one of the pilots you will get a blank campaign list and lose all of that pilots information.


How to read the information
Code::
[list] doe John Mad Doe - Pilot 0
  washington Jeff Ice\u0020Man Washington - Pilot 1
  smith Tom\t Snake Smith - Pilot 2
  carl Lewis Snake Carl - Pilot 3
  hill Henry Viper Hill - Pilot 4
  doe1 John QMB Doe - Pilot 5
  hill1 Benny Wildman Hill - Pilot 6
[current]
  5

The current pilot is pilot number 5 so "John QMB Doe" is the pilot I am using right now. I know this to be correct since I am using that pilot to test the QMB templates I am making.
