    Hi ace63,

    welcome here.

    The original Cliifs of Dover version from 2011 is obsolete, not supported by the developers, and may not run properly in the latest Windows versions.

    If you purchased it on Steam, you should have Cliffs of Dover - Blitz available for free there. This is current version which is still developed and improved.

    If you have the original Cliffs of Dover version installed in your PC, it is strongly recommended to uninstall it. It can cause conflicts with the Blitz version, crashes, and other problems.

    If you have the disk you are still entitled to the latest version for free. The latest update was released six weeks ago.

    Just to clarify:
    the original version may be obsolete, but since you have to play it through Stem anyway, your game will be updated automatically and for free to the latest version.

    So basically you just turn on Steam and play.

    Please have a look at the Getting Started and Troubleshooting Guide here
    https://theairtacticalassaultgroup.c...play.php?f=472

    and in game.

    Hi DerDa,

    if you mean the oroginal Cliffs of Dover from 2011, I'm afraid it will not be updated to Blitz automatically.

    Cliffs of Dover (2011) and Cliffs of Dover - Blitz are two different games for Steam. I have a separate item for each of them in my Steam library.

    Blitz must be installed by each user manually.

    That's the bad news.

    The good news is you can buy Cliffs of Dover Blitz on either Steam or at the il2sturmovik.com website for $9.99 USD and they regularly go on sale for 35% off saving another couple of bucks (either will work on Steam but the developers earn a higher margin on the website). So it won't break the bank. Trust me, it is well worth the $9.99 investment. The Tobruk expansion is more but you don't require that to get started, although it is a fun and very unique experience in and of itself. VR is being beta tested right now and the developers are doing an amazing job with that.

    Hi Josef,

    You arecertainly correct that it is a different game, and I too do still have a copy of the original in my Steam library.
    But, as far as I know and remember all the statements from TFS, the update to 'Blitz' was free for all leagal owners of the original game, whether purchased through Steam, CD or elsewhere.
    So, if you have a CD, you don't need to purchase anything else.

    Maybe someone from TFS should confirm.

    Here are steps for the owners of the original CD based game:

    - Install original CLIFFS OF DOVER from CD. DO NOT RUN.

    - Go to your Steam page and look through the list of available games.

    - You should see both CLIFFS OF DOVER and CLIFFS OF DOVER - BLITZ in the list... BLITZ will not be installed... original game will be... but will have updates queued... DO NOT INSTALL UPDATES.

    - Install CLIFFS OF DOVER - BLITZ through Steam.

    - Uninstall original CLIFFS OF DOVER game... after you do that it will still show in Steam, but will be unplayable.

    - Go on your PC to 'documents/1D Softclub/il2 sturmovik cliffs of dover' and delete the 'cache' folder.

    - Start the BLITZ version game.

    If you have a problem please take a look at the 'Getting Started and Troubleshooting Guide'.

    It is located in your main CLIFFS OF DOVER install folder in the 'manuals' folder.

    There are also manuals for the various aircraft located there which we recommend you read before flying the aircraft.

    Thanks
