agtim,thank you so much! You don't know how I miss FU1. I bought the english DOS version the day it became available here in Portugal, in 1994 if I'm not wrong... In 1996 during a trip to Germany/Berlin I found the fu95 version at a store and didn't hesitate buying it. Enjoyed it for quite a looong time, then started MSFS, Xplane, Propilot, PS1, ELITE, ... BUT! my humble oppinion is that I was never able to find the FM characteristics and the sensation of being there like in the FU series, with FU1 exceeding in terms of FM!I bought FSX, and am glad with it although I am sure a patch will be required to fix most of the issues, but the more I use other sims the more I miss FU!!!

Hi j.c.monteiro,Glad to help you :-)I start using the FU series in 1995, the DOS version, got the Win95 version last year from ebay and use it with WinXP_SP2.I have tried the FSX Demo, but stay to FU1, FU2 and FU3 with our enhancements from AVSIM library and building region of my own. It's even possible to generate a new tile for FU1, but still an unfinished project :-)recently I found real pictures of the Sugarloaf Airfield (FAA code B21)https://creports.capnhq.gov/afphotos/AFF/ME/B21_e.jpg :-wave agtim

Is your gameport activated, do you have a Soundcard with the old style Gameport ? I am using Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro with Gameport.

Well,my old Thrustmaster RCS Gameport pedals are no longer functional. That's why I migrated to CH Propedals USB...I still have my CH Flightstick Pro Gameport, so, I might try with it, and rudder inputs through the keyboard...Thanks for your support!
