    Locate your IL2 Sturmovik 1946 game folder in the (x86) Steam Apps folder
    You will need to create a New folder directly on your Hard Drive And Rename it "ubisoft" then Locate your “IL2 Sturmovik 1946 Game folder” (The Entire folder Not just the contents) Copy it Then paste it in the New “ubisoft folder” you just created
    When it is finished copying
    Get this download
    http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=1117.0
    It is IL2 No-CD exe , for un-modded games from SAS and extract it to your new “IL2 Sturmovik 1946 Game folder”

    Next create and Add these folders
    Quicks
    NetCache
    cache
    The Quicks folder is where the sim keeps the Quick Missions that you save. If you don't have the folder there is no place for you to save the QMB missions. If you don't use the QMB save feature you won't miss it until you want to use it.

    The NetCache folder is where the sim initially keeps the skins that are used for an .ntrk video or the skin someone uses during online play. If you don't have the folder there is no place to save the skin and any .ntrk made without having that folder will not use the correct skin during playback. IIRC, It uses the default skin.

    The cache folder is where the sim keeps the multiplayer Missions. If you don't have this folder you can't read the briefings for a multiplayer game.

    You must Move the IL2 Sturmovik 1946 folder before doing any Patching or Modding and Make Sure It works Off Line and Add the missing folders for IL2 to work correctly
    Now your Ready to Patch and add mod Packs to your game

    Directing Hyper Lobby to the correct version (If you have multiple versions this is the quickest why to change versions)
    Create a Desktop (IL2 fb.exe) Icon from the new “IL2 Sturmovik 1946 Game folder” you just pasted and test it off line using the exe in the folder
    Then right click and Select “Create Desktop shortcut Deleat the Desktop shortcut created by Steam before renameing the New shortcut
    Next direct the target to Hyper Lobby
    Exit the Lobby
    Right click on Connect
    The search box appears
    Right click in the game Icon you want use select properties
    Highlight and Copy the Target
    Paste in the Path box
    Save and enter the lobby
    Test the target By Hosting a game At this point it doesn’t matter What Version or if others can join we just need to test the target path Then You can patch to current


    Hope this helps as always Enjoy
