:D ;D
DO *NOT* use at any point the obsolete 409b1 patch.

To avoid a complete reinstall, is there any way to roll back from 4.09b to 4.08 to prepare it to be patched with proper 4.09m? Or it's possible just to copy full proper 4.09m over first beta 4.09 & the obsolete files will be overwritten automatically & new files added? Would I have any problems after it? I don't need any...  ;D

No need to. You can safely install 4.09m OVER 4.09b1m. It will replace it completely.

So, if now I have a folder with clean 4.101 + SASModAct 3.04b where everything works fine except for the missing planes that came with 4.09m (full), what's my best option? Install 4.09m (full) in that folder (to get the missin' planes), then install again 4.10 + 4.101 and then SASModAct all over this again?
Or just full proper 4.09m will be enough? It will add missin' sfx's and that's it?

Oh I see...

you have patched your game 4.08m to 4.09b1m to 4.10 to 4.101

when you should have gone 4.08 to 4.09m to 4.10 to 4.101

Now you want to know what is the easiest way to rectify the fact that you installed the wrong 4.09 patch? is this correct?

If so, then you should extract the 4.09m patch to a safe place on your PC, then copy and paste all the contents over to your game, EXCEPT the Files.SFS

Exactly!

Thanks, I will try that... (though I always thought new planes come inside new *.sfs-s files...  ::))

wait, I think I see where you misunderstand: copy all the contents of 4.09m, including the sfs files, over to your game, but do not copy over the one file that is called "files.sfs".

Hi el bradipo. I cannot open your second image, so let me just answer in general.

Unfortunately, I cannot provide support for any installation based on a 4.09 with a previous system.
We do recommend a clean , WORKING , install of 4.101. If you previously had 4.09 with UP2 or anything else, and you updated that to 4.101 (thus probably making UP2 unuseable without some fancy switching option, which most guys seem to be incapable of managing properly for any long period), then any errors you may have introduced into your upgrade will be carried over as is to the modact.

the no planes error is not a bug of the modact, it is a bug of a botched upgrade or installation. And we realy cannot help with it.

For guys on previous systems that were dedicated to 409, we can only once again say: put that aside, make a fresh start.

We support this modact in installations with HSFX5 and UP3 and DBW, on working 4.101 installs.

We do not support it in 409 switched installs with older modpacks or anything from the 409 era, suimple because, if we did, we would be spending all our time doing tech help, and no time modding.

Here it is:

Just shows what you've told already: That installation has passed away, let it rest in peace and start a new one.

Best regards - Mike

you have patched your game 4.08m to 4.09b1m to 4.10 to 4.101

Did exactly that, and all works flawlessly now! No reinstall needed! SAS~CirX, thank you so very much!

P.S.: I have a few questions: the SASModact has an option "Classic mod game"... Does that mean that I have to create a new "MODS" folder to place my favourite 4.09m/HSFX4 mods there to see them in 4.101+SASModact? And what's the difference between "#SAS" & "MODS" folders then?
And what's the best way to add new planes now? Using jgsme method or simply using "#SAS" folder like we used MODS?
(I've just added I-16Type29 & P-39N-1M & P-39Q-30 and they work fine)
And is there any chance to have just one "universal" 4.101+SASModact install that I can switch immediately to 4.09m to see if my new cockpits & parachute mod I'm workin' on are compatible?  ::)

unfortunately, time has caught up with us, this modact has already been replaced by a new one! :D

yes to what crazyflak said.

to put it simply: With "SAS Modact", the game will ignore your MODS and FILES folders (if you have any). It will ONLY read from the #SAS folder. The #SAS folder is exactly the same sort of thing as the old "MODS" folder.
