Same Il2 1946 folder for VP and BAT?
« on: February 11, 2020, 09:47:50 AM »

Hats off to this great forum and all the terrific mods! As a newbie, I recently installed VP modpack and all works great. I'd like to install BAT also. Can I install it into the same il2 1946 folder that contains VP or should I start fresh and install BAT first and then install VP. I'd prefer not to have a separate il2 1946 folders for each mod. Is this feasible and what is best course of action. Thank you gentlemen for you assistance.
HooYa!

Thanks very much for your reply. I had seen Monty's link before so I guess I have to start over and install BAT first before installing VP.
Still a bit unclear about the DG file and also how adding the VP (MOD) addition to the config file to finish the VP installation could affect the BAT installation.
Thanks again!

you mean il2fb.ini?
not at all if you do as instructed.
have a backup of the file ready when you edit it and you are good to go.

The one big incompatibility that can lead to real issues is DGen.

Both packs can share only one instance of some files/folders. This will impact QMBPro missions, manually installed static campaigns... how you manage this is up to you!
