This is Battle of Britain II: Wings of Victory Patch 2.13 files adapted over 2.01 exe made to run on Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10

It will change Textures, Sounds, Plane Models and Configs. I also adapted Tiger Moth plane to work with it without replace any playable aircraft so doesn't breaking campaign or other plane sounds. (As it uses patch 2.01 exe it doesn't include many fixes like AI improvements, new ground objects and MultiSkin feature from Patch 2.13)

I also added to this patch many personal addons made by me (If you don't like fictional Addons I added a backup for all original planes from patch 2.13). So after you install this Patch it will appear a new folder "Addons (OPTIONAL)" inside your "Battle of Britain II" folder, so inside it you will find all my addons and the default 2.13 Patch addons so if you want to restore 2.13 original plane textures install the files inside "7-DEFAULT 2.13 Patch Addons" folder.

....................................................................................

::INSTALLATION::

(Attention: This Patch requires BOB2 Original CD Release since it needs original registry. It will not work on BOB2 Matrix Games version since it comes with 2.06 Patch included. So if you installed any previous patched versions before uninstall it first and install old BOB2 Original CD Release again to restore registry)

1-Install original "Battle of Britain II: Wings of Victory" game from CD

2-Install this "BOB2 Windows 10 Patch" over your bob2 game directory at: C:\Battle of Britain II

3-At the end of the installation a window will open and ask you to Install DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010). Install it since it's needed for BOB2 works on Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10

4-Always run "bob.exe" as Administrator and in Compatibility Mode "Windows XP" (Or else you may have mute radio chat sounds and other bugs)

5-On Game Main Menu go to Options / Menu / Controls / Key Mapping

Find "EXITKEY"

And then Clear [Alt+X] command and replace it to another key of your choice like [End] for example, then click save. (It helps in case your Windows uses Alt+X for some system shortcut command causing the game to crash)

....................................................................................

::KNOW BUGS::

-If you don't run "bob.exe" in Compatibility Mode "Windows XP" your radio chat will become mute cause "SFX Quality" in Sound Menu config will automatically revert from High to Low and it also will set "Radio Chatter Volume" to OFF (So if you forgot this step use "Windows XP" Compatibility Mode and go to sound menu change back "SFX Quality" to High and set a new "Radio Chatter Volume" instead OFF value to fix the radio chat)

-This Patch uses old Hurricane and BF110 models cause 2.13 new models with movable pilot head have bugged wings' damage plates so they don't show damage holes on wings when hit

-As Tiger Moth plane model doesn't have Low LOD (Level of Detail) mesh for the cockpit if you use in "bdg.txt" the command OPTIMISE_OBJECTS_DURING_RUNTIME=ON the cockpit will become invisible so to fix always use "OFF" for this line like: OPTIMISE_OBJECTS_DURING_RUNTIME=OFF
(This patch already comes with a bdg.txt using OPTIMISE_OBJECTS_DURING_RUNTIME=OFF to fix it)

-As Tiger Moth doesn't have Interactive Cockpit you will not be able to manual start engines so if you are using "Engine Management: Manual" you have two ways to start engines and take off:

1-Press "Control + A" to activate Autopilot and wait for your aircraft start engines and take off only then take back control

2-Press "M' to open the Map then press "1" 1.Accel and press again "1" 1.Forward so when you return to game you will be in the air

(If you want to Turn Off Tiger Moth Engines just keep your throttle at 0% on ground for 10 to 20 seconds that it will automatically turn off. So if you want to keep parked on ground without turn off your engines keep at least 10% throttle. And if you landed and turn off engines but you want to start engines and take off again don't use autopilot pressing "Control + A" that your plane will crash on ground, instead press "M" "1.Accel" "1.Forward" since autopilot only works for the first time you take off your plane)

-Sometimes Engine or Cannon and Guns sounds become mute in the middle of the battle, so if this bug happens just press "P" to pause the game that the sound will be fixed

-When you fly Bf110 using Engine Management Manual and during the mission you use some Autopilot Accel command like pressing "Tab" or Pressing "M' to open the Map then press "1" / 1.Accel / 1.Forward. When you take over control the right engine will always shut down cause the Right Fuel Cock will automatically be Turned Off to save fuel. So always remember to Turn On the Right Fuel Cock back

Hi. I managed to get the game working for windows 10. But I am unable to change my resolution. It just keeps it at a low poor resolution. No matter how much I try to change it, it won't let me change it or it stays at the old resolution. Could I get some guidance on how to fix the resolution problem?

Thanks!

Hi yes it's common when "Use Desktop Res (Recommended) = On"

So to fix that go to "Options" and change:

"Use Desktop Res (Recommended) = On"

To:

"Use Desktop Res (Recommended) = Off"

Then manually choose your video resolution in "3D Resolution" and "Campaign Resolution" fields

For example, my desktop video resolution is 1366x768 so my config is:

Use Desktop Res (Recommended) = Off
3D Resoluttion = 1366x768x32
Campaign Resolution = 1366x768x32
