i've been playing the bob2 for about a week now and talking with the guys in that forum about different functions.

But i also just ordered the CFS3 game and run across the Firepower mod info at Gamespot. And then i noticed you guys are the ones with the Fire Power add-on. which i plan on purchasing when the game arrives through snail mail.

i seen someone asking a question about the CFS3 patches and went to the link you provided for them. I seen many patches on the page.

the Question: Is there a certain order to download the patches or can you just download the last patch and it includes the rest of the patches?

thanks
gordo

Hi Gordo,

First off, CFS3 is the most underrated combat sim of them all and, yes, out of the box it's a dog, **BUT** with a bit of work setting it up is well worth the effort.

Patches - apply the cfs3 3.1 then 3.1a before all else. If you're getting FP (and you should) just add the patches for that in numerical order.

The ETO expansion pack is the No.1 must have add-on, get yourself over to the Sim-Outhouse which is the main cfs3 forum, all you need to know is there.

Cheers,

Pat :)

CFS3 is the only sim were I get to play my main interest of the RAF night campaign over occupied Europe its really good at low and dirty stuff too, 1944 pounding along in typhoons etc is great fun as is low level escort missions.

....Pat is one of the chaps who makes some of the magic happen still over at the outhouse

The instructions make it seem much more complicated than it is, trust me! A lot of the posts on SoH concern Vista and Windows 7.

It's a self installer and does all the work for you and you only need to download ETO 1.2.

You need a fresh new cfs3 install patched to 3.1a. The installer makes a complete copy of it leaving the 'fresh' one as it is. It then adds all the ETO goodies to the new one, simple! All it asks for is where do you want to stick theETO version.

Firepower can then be added to your original install - I'm afraid the ETO and FP aren't compatible in that they both mod the same files so they have to be seperate. However the gorgeous FP USAAF Heavy bombers can be copied into the ETO as there's a fix available which also includes lots of alternative textures.

Oops, was wrong on that, you need to install 1.0 first, sorry!
