especially note:
If you have 'failed to update' message in the launcher, please close it, navigate to the installation folder of the game and delete the folder called 'updates' and backup data/startup.cfg file (it contains your settings) and data/luascripts/snapviews folder if you altered the default camera positions for yourself. Then run the laucher again. Sorry for inconvenience!

Looks like there is a file fix you can download from the IL2 forum, that should fix the issue.  See https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/52829-game-version-3102-discussion-pzkpfwiv-ausfg-halberstadt-clii-bristol-fighter-f2b/?do=findComment&comment=800625

I followed the directions from yesterday and deleted the updats folder from the game directory, and backed up and saved my startup.cfg file. Then re-ran the updater.

Worked perfectly. I ran the game but found out I had to redo my email Addy in the BoS login. So I quit and put back in my backed up startup cfg file. Problem solved.

RATS!

I put in the file that Rel referenced from the IL2 site, but the game won't start.

It stops at downloading game client.

Any ideas?

I just had to rerun the game updater to fix mine. Thought I had it fixed last night but guess not. Small 1.84 mb update and Im back up again.

Hey Agile,

The same thing happened to me.  It set there not doing anything for 5 to 10 minutes, then all  of a sudden it started to install.  I couldn't tell that anything had downloaded but it worked

My updater worked too. I was ignoring it and surfing elsewhere when it finished underneath. It took about 1/2 hour for me.

Crazy - sorry you had issues Agile.  Mine downloaded ok first time I tried it but the update failed.  After removing the downloaded files under the update folder and replacing the file I referenced in my post above, it downloaded and installed fine.  Not their finest hour, but this is the first time I’ve seen a problem with their updater so I guess we can give them a mulligan :).

So another small update today?  Maybe to further. Fix their updater.

S! Rel et al,

Got it to work last night by deleting that folder and putting in Rel's fix.

Flew on AKA Expert for a few minutes ok.
