Step2: Patch it up to: 4.12.2:
You can use this mega patch it will bring you to the latest version from whatever version your running automatically

Or get IL2 1946 from Steam that will be straight up to date: LESS HASSLE:

Now check the game runs and set your graphics to full including the resolution, it now supports 1920x1080

Step3: Now download HSFX 7 and install VIA Installer: ... 309.0.html

OK Make sure you install HSFX 7 first Note that the game will not run very well once it has been installed

Step4: Download The Hsfx Patch Manually (just Unzip into you IL2 46 root and overwrite) ... o_7.03.rar

Step5: After installing the patch... Open JSGME(JoneSoft Generic Mod Enabler) Activate the following Mods in the program:
