i5, Win7, 4GB Ram, NVidia 560 Ti.
Pre patch: CoD running okay.
After Patch: "Downloading GDF Installer.exe"
Then - Nothing.
Try running again - Nothing.
Delete all files in etc\My Docs\1Csoftclub\
in Steam delete all local content (game uninstalls.
Delete C:\Programfiles\etc\Steamapps\IL2 whatever it's called.
Download it AGAIN (that's twice today)

Still not running.

Hate hate hating.

Did it all again.
Working this time.
That's Ten Gig out of mu 30 for the month.
Lets see if it keeps losing contact with my controllers like the last version.

Don't panic! =)
Sorry, my eng is bad.. What you mean?
Don't reinstall game - if another files is broken, you can verify files in Steam.
OUUUU!!! Stop!!!!
Your Steam is install in "C-drive"?? ---->> ""7) If the client Steam ustnovlen on the system drive, you can reposition it to the logical drive.""
Or try run the game "from Admin".

its bug with update, mines doing it, does vc install then nothing, file check comes up clear as well.

Got it to work.
Deleted all local files.
downloaded game.
Ran - Failed.
Ran - Failed.
Ran - and it ran.

Unfortunately it is STILL inconsistent about whether it will respond to a key press.
If I hit the gear key, I have to go to an outside view to check the gear has gone down.

It STILL loses conection to the throttle. Which is my MAIN problem.
This game is unplayable, because I have no reliability with my control inputs.
I'll give it a few more goes, but it looks like the bugs I experience havent been addressed.
Oh well - only a year between updates.

Try delete the contents from x: \ Users \% username% \ Documents \ 1C SoftClub \ il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover \

or User.ini.. from Documents.

Yeah done all that.

working for now, but still flakey.
details when i've clocked 5 hours in the patch.

(ive clocked 46 all up since i bought this game - and about 200 in IL2 1946.

Have a similar problem since yesterday. Game worked well after the patch, but yesterday I had to reinstall my Kaspersky-Internet-Security. After that, game is not starting anymore.
I get the picture of the small yellow plane, but the a fall back to the starting steam screen.
Any idea or help is welcome !!!

Can't help you there dude.
A lot of games get bug reports and turn around a patch.
Incremental updates and all that.
Not this game.
JG4_Meteor2 Nov 4, 2012 @ 12:29pm 
I searched the 1 C forum on the web and fortunately, hint worked: I deleted the "1C Soft Club" folder (saved controll config !). After this, the game started as before. I will test now if everything works.

Try updateing your BIOS. It might work. Portal 2 and Saints Row 3 crashed my computer, but now they work because I updated my BIOS. Go ahead and try it, might not help you though if it is just the update, considering I don't have the game.

I STILL have that same old problem:
Controls stop working.
Escape - go to controls, can assign axis key or whatever, so they're still tsalking to the game.
Return to the game. - No Control!

This game is SO frustrating.
I'm an average pilpot, good IT guy, decent system spec, can't make this bloody game work.

Looks nice.
Plays well.
Freezes and locks up.
