Post your game version and system specs.

But I'll give it a shot Smile

Me too.

Also how does it freeze, do you need to terminate the process, restart comp etc. or is just a crash to desktop?

ok, thanks for system info.
the reason your game is freezing is because you are using a on board graphics card.the on board card you have is not good enough for the game.This WILL cause game freezing and system lock up.
Best advise is to buy a graphics card.sorry for the bad news but this is what is causing your problem.

These were the minimum tech specs for v407m

You can safely assume to double these minimum requirements with the consequential versions v408m v409m v410 v4101

Version 4.04m – 4.07m

Attention: The DVD version is shipping with the Pacific Fighters manual, as it is the most representative of the latest features in the simulation. This readme contains the latest up-to-date information that has changed since the manual was created. For all other items please see the standard Pacific Fighters manual. You can find the electronic manual by going to the Start Menu –> Programs –> Ubisoft –> Il-2 Sturmovik: 1946 -> Pacific Fighters Manual

Note: This document contains separate readmes for the 4.07, 4.06, 4.05 and 4.04 versions. Please make sure to read all pertinent information in all four readmes in your language.

Mission briefings and some other texts that are part of new 4.05, 4.06 and 4.07 content are only available in English, and are not localized into other languages

Minimum and recommended system specifications

Supported OS: Windows© 98 / Me / XP / 2000
Minimum: Pentium® III or AMD Athlon ™ 1 GHz
Recommended: P4 3 Ghz or above
Minimum: 512 Mb
Recommended: 1 Gb or more
Video Card:
Minimum: DirectX ® 9 compatible, 64 Mb
Recommended: 128 Mb or more
Sound Card:
Minimum: DirectX ® 9 compatible
Recommended: Audigy series
Free HD space after install: 6+ GB
Network Play: high speed internet connection with minimum delay is highly recommended

Recommended video drivers

As of this moment, the latest WHQL drivers are recommended.


NOTE: Please make sure to set the proper default graphics card settings in the setup program, and don’t set any decreasing quality settings. These options are only recommend for case of known problems with specific cards, which may help to identify or partially solve possible problem. Please make sure that the default settings for each video card in the list in the setup program are the best.

Additional features of graphics settings

Water rendering

To select water rendering mode please modify the Water section in the file conf.ini in the [Render_OpenGL] section (Water = 1 by default).

Water = 0 – Water with flat geometry (fastest).
Water = 1 – Water with flat geometry (fast).

High quality water rendering modes with correct wave geometry
Water = 2 – This mode is visually similar to water = 3 but it runs on ATI cards 9800, X800, X1800 and later models.
Water = 3 – Fast render mode with Vertex Shaders 3.0 (NVIDIA 6600 and later models)
Water = 4 – Better quality mode with Vertex Shaders 3.0 (NVIDIA 6800 and later models)

ATI 9500 and higher supports modes: 0, 1, 2.
NVIDIA 6600 and later models support: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4.
NVIDIA cards before the 6xxx series support: 0, 1, 2 (2 is not recommended).

Clouds rendering

In order to see higher quality clouds you will need to manually edit the conf.ini file located in your main game folder before launching the game. Open the file with a text editor, find the [game] section and in the TypeClouds= line write in either 0 or 1, then save the file.

TypeClouds=0 - standard clouds
TypeClouds=1 - improved quality clouds

When playing online the player will see the cloud type set by the server, and not as individually set in their conf.ini. This is done to ensure all players see the same tactical situation in the air regardless of their settings.

Notes about technical limits.

1.Ship wakes and explosions intersect with wave tops, creating dark spots
2. Reflections are visible behind the objects.
3. Effects=2 ([Render_OpenGL] section of conf.ini) test mode for improved effects lighting. This mode required 3.0+ MHz CPU.
4. The perfect graphics setting is prohibited in DirectX mode. It is possible to set only in OpenGL mode.
5. Please make sure that your sound card is properly configured if you experience any problems with hardware acceleration, as in-game sound depends on EAX settings.

I used to run IL2(first one) on highest graphics on a PCI geforce 4 mx...the slowest edition.

It ran highest graphics.

1946 is petty much the same graphics, unless you turn shadermodel on.
It should run fine.
Unless Oleg decided to bog down the engine and no one told me about it?

In the Il2 setup exe choose DirectX.
Turn off stencil buffer.
In video select safe settings.
in sound select no sound.

In Intel HD control center change the OpenGL/graphic settings to lowest.
Set monitor colours to 16 bit.

Run it and tell me what happens.

From the specs I seen for the Dell DV051 it should run on lowest graphics.
But it is hard to find real info on it.
