We're seeing lots of posts about the Steam update breaking CloD. Firstly the update has nothing to do with us and is as much a surprise after 4-years of inactivity to us as to you.
Great info from ATAG_Lewis.
1) Back up your game folder in the STEAM folder on your hard drive...Keep it somewhere else on your PC until you know you have configured this update successfully..
2) Copy your 'confUser' and your 'user' files from your game folder in '1C Softclub'....paste them somewhere for safe keeping again until you know this update has been configured successfully..
3) Start STEAM
4) STEAM will download the update....At the bottom you should see a downloading bar filling....
5) Once it has downloaded.....Click on LIBRARY....then..Click on GAMES
6) Right click 'IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover'
7) Click Properties
8) You now have a new tab at the end of the tabs called 'BETAS'...Click on BETAS
9) Select the beta you would like to opt into:....SELECT......NONE-Opt out of all beta programs
10) Close STEAM (and reboot PC)
11) Start your game to test that the update has not been installed....Game should run as usual

Apparently they (who every "They" are) have rolled back the patch.  So if you have not opened your game this week you probably have nothing to worry about.    I dont have the auto update checked so I dont think I will have an issue either.

That being said I am going to follow the advice that Ram/Lewis posted before I launch COD next.

Ok I think I have it sorted.    If it gives me any issues I will have to do a complete reinstall but I pulled in the TF patches last night again and loaded my conf files and it worked offline.
