AAA Unified Installer 1.1 availible now

Post by Buffalo Six »

Its out.....and right now their DL server is slammed. I will D/L this in a few days (after things have calmed down some) and upload it here. I am trying to confirm if this includes CannonUK's BoB map (its different and much smaller than the 352nd Cross Channel Map) and I think its supposed to be in here. I think the B29 Silver Plate Mod actually has a correct modeled cockpit....working on confirming that. I believe there is a mod that enables a limited form of radar (going to be nice on our CCM as we now have Chain Home Radar towers modeled, and they look real good) so things are looking up....SoW who?
= AAA Unified Client Installer version 1.1 =
Featuring Dedicated Server 1.1 check runtime 2 compatibility Download-here

By the Community, for the Community

Welcome to the second AAA installer. It has always been our intention to provide a simple way of installing the mods found on this site, and we thank you for your patience. Keeping with the unified installer 1.0, this installer contains only working finished products (no beta's) in a simple point and click installation.

While it was our intention the unified installer 1.0 was to be updated we have found some older mods do not adhere to the structure we currently have, we have decided to ensure a good clean installation for everyone. Moreover, having the ability to roll up all new aircraft and objects in one installation ensures compatibility with server side checkruntime=2 compatibility.

In the future, it is our intention that 1.1 will provide a reliable base by which we only release fixes or compatible add-on mods into the common structure.

As noted before, Version 1.1 enforces checkruntime and for those that want to enforce crt=2 for coops and online wars, may do so knowing everyone is using the same set of mods. Therefore, we strongly suggest to all users not add new mods or aircraft to this installation. If however you wish to add mods please make a separate copy of the game and add those items to the copied game.

AAA Community Mod Installer Version 1.1 contents:

Game Versions and Switcher:

This installer will provide Direct-2-Drive customers to update their game to be compatible with the DVD version and allow the mods to run.

The installer also provides a handy switcher that will be located in the 1946 game folder. The name of the switcher is 'Il2VersionSwitcher.exe' This small application will allow the user to switch to and from 4.08 and 4.09 as well as allowing for 6DOF is the user has a 6DOF capable trackIR version.

Included Mods:

AI Aircraft made flyable (These use cockpits & gun stations from the flyable aircraft)
The majority of these were produced by MrJolly & Additional work by Lt.Wolf

Installation Warnings:
1. If you are installing this package over a fresh installation of the IL-2 1946 DVD, you must first patch the game to 4.08m.
2. If you have IL-2 installed, Copy your current IL-2 1946 game folder and rename the new folder. Next, Delete the FILES and MODS folders. The new install will copy 4.08 files allowing any Direct 2 Drive user to be compatible with the mod.
3. If you have the unified installer 1.0, move the folder named FILES and MODS folder from your modded game to another location for safe keeping.


Installation Instructions:
1. Double left click the file 'AAA_Community_Installer_ver_1_1_part01.exe'
NOTE: You only need to run/install the first part (part01) as long as you keep all the files together you can ignore all the other parts
2. Once opened Left-Click on the Browse button and Select your IL-2 1946 4.08m game folder. Selecting OK and Left-Click the Install button.
3. When prompted to overwrite files select Yes to all


Switching Versions
Please use the version switcher included with the pack located within the root of your IL2 game folder Il2VersionSwitcher.exe to switch between different versions of the game. If for some reason you have problems opening the version switcher you can instead use the batch files also contained within the root of the IL2 game folder

FOR FURTHER HELP ON BATCH FILES THERE IS A README LOCATED WITHIN THE ROOT OF IL2 CALLED: #ReadMe_Community_Installer_ver_1_1.txt

well, how big is the complete 1946 install with this installed? (if that is what you meant)

i have the disk space, so it is o.k.

if you want to do just one part, zip the 8 together.

No the mod is about 1.78 gigs, the virgin 1946 dvd install is 3.3 gigs. I cant remember if the 1946 DVD install is with or without 4.08m.
I have a clean non modded straight off the dvd version to ease using the Mod. All you have to do is copy your personal user folder over and if you have skins (I have like 3 gig of skins...I am such a skin whore), and I'll check what parts of (or the whole thing) of the config .ini stuff you will want to copy paste for a new install.

I'll look tonight when I get home. One of the 352nd guys helps/helped write the MOD switcher interface so he was able to get it before AAA servers crashed (last I heard today they had exceeded their 6TB of downloads and the torrent streams got hacked and the mirrors also crashed. Waaaaay too many peeps trying to get this all at once.

So I will D/L the AAA UI1.1 either tonight after my training flights, or overnight actually. I already have the 1946 DVD on my local system so I'll upload them this week if thats cool with you. The 352nd 1940 CCM map is being assembled right now (I have no idea how all that works...witchcraft if you ask me) and once thats out I'll post the DL links for it and the BoB mission we are making for it.
