Need help with Hyperlobby
« on: January 10, 2019, 04:09:09 AM »
I have the game installed now, and it is running. Having a problem getting the lobby to point to the game, however. When I do a search, it bypasses the game, and says it can't be found. Doesn't work when I copy the game path either. I have the game installed to C:\Ubisoft\IL-2 4.12.1 HSFXv7.0.3, and am pointing to il2fb.exe. Not sure why it won't work. Any ideas?

S~

is your Hyperlobby game selection pointing to IL2 Sturmovik 1946?    (The radio button in the list of games above the sign in)  before you click on connect.  I imagine it is, but if you've reinstalled hyperlobby that's an easy click to forget.

Also, in looking at your game path and comparing it to mine I have no spaces or periods/decimal points in the folder names, and do have slashes between each folder name and file name.  Not sure if it might be reading your  periods ( decimal points) as file type indicators. The  spaces or periods might be confusing it.       

 C:\CleanHSFX\FX7\il2fb.exe     <-- like that. 

You can also try  creating a shortcut to the il2fb.exe file. Then on your desktop,  right click on that shortcut  and click properties and you'll be able to see the exact path in the target box there  that hyperlobby needs to use.   

At that awkward age where your brain has gone from " Probably shouldn't say that" to
"What the hell, let's see what happens"?  Me too.

If I remember correctly, I think you have to make sure the quotation marks "  " are not in the hyperlobby path.

right???

Woohoo! It worked! I checked the path, and copied the line from the shortcut, without the quotation marks. I tried that last night, and for some reason it didn't work then...go figure. Anyway, it's working now. Thanks BBQ and Twenty!
