FU3 on Windows 10 working (mostly)

Recommended Posts

You're not executing from the run box (entering Windows key plus X) but from a dos prompt. I suppose also that you have administrative rights.

Same issue, using the same command under run 😕 

What's even weirder is the game used to launch by just copying the FLT3 folder right? Now it doesn't even load anymore, really odd.

If you want to enjoy the whole game with big visual quality, you'll need dgvoodoo2 as software interface.

It's not just a matter of copying a FLT3 folder, but installing the game from the three ISO files, which are in fact  three CDs.

So you burn the ISOs to real CDs, so you use a virtual CD emulator. A gave here the tips and even a link for doing that.

Just to be clear, I've read your entire guide and also I'd like to thank you for even taking the time to reply to me. 

I think this might just be something related to my system, I am using Daemon tools lite to make a virtual hard drive for the ISO's and even paid around 8 euros to download the special ISO's from that website but it seems like no matter the download source, it doesn't want to run on my system at all.

I am running Windows 10 version 19042 if that makes any difference.

So in these photos, you can see that all 3 CD's are using Daemon Tools Lite to mount them, I am also on an Administrator account. 

What seems to happen is Windows asks me if I want to run setup.exe which obviously I say yes to, but nothing ever opens up. I can physically see the setup.exe running in task manager, but no window appears.

Thanks for your answer.

I agree with you, it's something related with your system.

Daemon Tools are heavy and perhaps a bit not compatible with windows 10. You appear to have the latest windows 10 version. So if your system is updated, all I can say is that you give a try to Virtual CloneDrive (from Elby), very light, compatible, you don't have to uninstall anything. Good luck!

I have another idea. Can't you change the drive letter to D? These very old games do not like weird things. (to install you have to eject and insert ISO file always with the same drive letter)
