That activation guide explains how you get a key for your il2sturmovik.com user account registration if you have purchased the initial game through Steam.
If you purchased the first part you ever got through Steam, then this guide is required because naturally il2sturmovik.com doesn't know you yet.

Later when you have one part on your PC already (whichever that is, be it BoS, BoM, BoK or BoBo), you can always purchase any additional content from il2sturmovik.com and it will just be there inside your game when you start it ("it's magic" :D).
Any additional Steam content you buy, or anything from other resellers, you have to go to the License Key page (https://il2sturmovik.com/store/license-keys/) and enter the key you got (e.g. from Steam, as outlined in the activation guide) to activate the content in your game.

Summary:
If you buy something from il2sturmovik.com and didn't own any part before: Go to https://il2sturmovik.com/download/ download the game and install it with your key.
If you buy something from Steam/Resellers and didn't own any part before: Installation will be automatically, for account activation you need to follow the activation guide: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/1366-game-key-activation-faq/
If you buy something from il2sturmovik.com and already own any BoX part: The content will be activated automatically on next game start.
If you buy something from Steam/Resellers and already own any BoX part: The content will be activated automatically after entering the Steam/Reseller key according to the activation guide: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/1366-game-key-activation-faq/

Dear Storebror,
what would you recommend: BOS or BOM.
I was not really happy with COD through Steam and I dropped the game.
Is my computer strong enough (see below) for BOS or BOM? Or is my computer bof?
Should I perhaps wait for a supersale of Bodenplatte in a few months.
Best regards and Merry Xmas.

Code: [Select]
Intel Core Duo E8400 3GHz, Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti, 2x2 gb DDR2 1066 mHZProbably you won't get happy with it.
Let's say it that way: BoX is less heavy on your system than CloD is.
Therefore, as a rule of thumbs, if it runs CloD, it will run BoX.
However there's one important limitation: BoX is 64 Bit only! If you still have 32 Bit OS, BoX will not run.

what would you recommend: BOS or BOM.
It's common sense that BoS is kind of an accepted "base" installation.
While the BoM planeset is a great addon for BoS, standalone it would be somewhat boring.

Yes, you enter that key here...

update: my first purchase for 2018 is officially the BoM premium edition. :D
i won't be flying until i get my peripherals sorted out - joystick, sound, etc (my PC has a stupid sound issue, and doesn't play 5.1 sound correctly. i have a choice of soundcards to use, but the GPU is so big in the slot, the souncard will actually be touching it when installed.
considering my GPU already runs insanely high temps, and the souncard would effectively be blocking the GPU fan entirely, that's essentially a no-go.), but i feel good about the discounted price, and also making some contribution to the sim's future. :D

Welcome aboard Eugene.
With BoS accepted as common base and BoM becoming widespread even among the price-sensitive players, "IL-2 Great Battles" is ready for the next evolutionary step which will be Version 3.001. It's right at the doorsteps, will bring a completely reworked Stalingrad map which looks much better than before, and it will more or less finalize Battle of Kuban (which I expect to be on sale for the easter season then).
We have big plans with IL-2 Great Battles series, part of which is our own Gameserver which is up and running fine, we only need to get used to the Mission Editor now.

See you in the Great Battles skies!

Cheers!
Mike
