Now I tried this new modact in two different ways.
1-cherry 412.1 and followed directions works fine
2- over wrote 412 with 412.1 with a minus sign in front of the sas mod started fine then removed the minus sign and dropped in all three new modacts for 412.1 without deleting nothing and allowed overwrite. Works like a charm the splash screen is 412.1 modact 5.20 everything works as stated.

Installed and working successfuly for me Mike, thank you very much, great stuff. 8)

I reported some 'Mission loading failed:null' errors with the previous version, these have now dissapeared with 5.20 and my Dbs and B-25s are all working, magic. ;)

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

tuskegee, elsewhere you reported that your game crashes at 5%.
5% CTD usually means an issue with SFS files, most likely the files.sfs.
Just out of curiosity: You did remember to patch your game to 4.12.1 before installing Modact 5.20?
Either case please tell the size of your files.sfs file (in bytes).

Best regards - Mike
yep I did I started the game stock and in the down left corner I could see the Version indicator telling the right version and the amount of bytes->9566.27 hopefully my TI did his job properly
cheers

No sorry, your TI doesn't help here.
Right click the "files.sfs" file, choose "properties". In the next window you see a size for the file (precisely two, but the second line "size on disk" isn't what we need here).
First line tells you some size like this: "32.1 MB (33.500.123 Bytes)" (no, that's not the right size, tell us yours instead).

Best regards - Mike

Keep cool tuskegee, tearing your hair out gets you nowhere.
Your files.sfs file for sure isn't 4,35 GB in size. That'd be the size of your IL-2 DVD.
Your files.sfs file has a size of roughly 32 MB. Look into your IL-2 4.12.1 game folder, watch out for a file called "files.sfs" and right click on that file, then select "properties" and note the "size" value reported.

Next is the game installation.
You said your game is 4.11.1m.
I get it that you purchased a direct2drive version of the game.
If so, in order to have a working game installation with any Modact, HSFX, Ultrapack, DBW or the like, you need this:
Direct 2 Drive Patch for all versions

I repeat: If your game is a Direct2Drive purchased game (and the fact that you said your game is 4.11.1m points into that direction), you need the above mentioned patch. You'll need it each and every time you wanna mod your game. (On a sidenote: If it isn't a D2D game the patch doesn't hurt either)

One you got beyond this issue, proceed installint official patch 4.12m.
Start your game to check whether it's running fine.
Next install the official patch 4.12.1m.
Start your game again to check whether it's running fine.
Next install Modact 5.20.
If you have issues downloading the files, I recommend either to use the 100MB Chunks from Mediafire or the Torrent provided in the same post: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,36163.msg396275.html#msg396275

Mike I managed to install the 4.12.1m version properly, it seems some links are corrupted. I almost certain my reinstall will work now, I will let you know. 31,9 MB (33.501.184 bytes) that's more like it I presume lol earlier i took all the bytes from the sfs files in the directory my bad

cheers
