  1. I sum up below all that is needed to install and run the game on windows 10, with top max quality. Just to say that Air Traffic Control is very realistic. Unsurpassed? If you download Flight Unlimited 3 from this link https://www.old-games.com/ the game will work flawlessly with no bugs on windows 10. Installation tricks: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Flight_Unlimited_III Install on windows 10 applying “two layers”: Install ddfix 1.5.13 https://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=143020 with the help of HxD Hex Editor, follow instructions. This improves DirectX working. Install DDrawCompat experimental/test release (just put it on game folder) link: https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat/releases This connects DirectX 6 with Windows 10 today DirectX. In this link https://library.avsim.net/index.php?CatID=lgfu3&Sort=Author&ScanMode=1&Page=1 you have Ansgar Avermeyer AI Package, and a few more planes to install directly, as one Boing 747. Christopher Low has uploaded Seattle 2006 and SanFran 2006 to my MediaFire account. You can download them using the links below.... Seattle 2006 http://www.mediafire...j59kocbuja241tn SanFran 2006 http://www.mediafire...mdoiqam8o6127y7 Manual is here: http://alfozavr.wdfiles.com/local--files/fu3-downloads/FU3_Manual.pdf Play it in 1024 x 768, with 3D acceleration driver activated.

  3. I've just found that "DDrawCompat experimental release" https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat/releases works even better than dgvoodoo2 ! Great, great, great. More stable, opens full screen every time, less lag, D3D output (smooth sky), with just one ddraw.dll file in the game folder. All this on Windows 10. Remember in options 1024x768, and 3D accelerated driver.
  4. Hi everybody, I'm going to be as short as possbible: FLIGHT UNLIMITED is working with Windows 10. For the game itself, don't worry, it's now abandonware. You can find easily FU2 and FU3. Do not forget the 2.0 patch. Installation tricks: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Flight_Unlimited_III The big trick is to download and install (just put DGVOODOO2. (Just put ddraw.dll, D3DImm.dll and dgVoodooCpl.exe in the game directory). DirectX settings: put 64 mb of vram and fast video memory access. Also force anisotropic 8x. Nothing more. Playing as administrator, in my case I managed to play the intro video. I replaced the EA_LG.AVI file by the one from Flight Unlimited 2, changing the name, because it is more spectacular. In this link https://library.avsim.net/index.php?CatID=lgfu3&Sort=Author&ScanMode=1&Page=1 you have Ansgar Avermeyer AI Package, and a few more planes to install directly, as one Boing 747. Christopher Low has uploaded Seattle 2006 and SanFran 2006 to my MediaFire account. You can download them using the links below.... Seattle 2006 http://www.mediafire...j59kocbuja241tn SanFran 2006 http://www.mediafire...mdoiqam8o6127y7 Manual is here: http://alfozavr.wdfiles.com/local--files/fu3-downloads/FU3_Manual.pdf Play it in 1024 x 768, with 3D acceleration driver activated. On settings push all sliders to the right except distance clipping. Haze and gamma as you like.
  5. It is very lonely here. There is just one more thing. On the radio, the rogue and bass voice of one of the “aviators” breaks the radio. Indeed! Just one voice, and it happens after 20, 30 minutes elapsed on the radio. Of course, you can shut off the radio. I found a workaround. On dgvoodoo2 choose GeForce4Ti4800 card and put Texturing filter App driven. It is true, this game is from the Windows 98 era. Ahead of its time, it brings detailed landscapes and airports, plenty of life with other planes or vehicles on the ground. Changing weather. Night flight. Air Traffic radio Control and voices on the radio are realistic. As I said immersive and unsurpassed. Play it in 1024 x 768 with my settings.
  6. Flight Unlimited 3 works very well on windows 10 with DDFIX 1.5.13, but needs another wrapper, because the output is still DirectX 6, not compatible with Windows 10. Manual here: http://alfozavr.wdfiles.com/local--files/fu3-downloads/FU3_Manual.pdf I remind here the benefits of DDFIX 1.5.13 for FU3 by Jermi: · Removes the sky banding and haze/fog blockiness. . Enabled 32-bit in the sim and the graphics are now superb. · Set reasonable defaults specifically for FU3. On settings push all sliders to the right. The game works today much better than when it was issued.
  7. First of all, I don’t believe this version of DDFIX (1.5.13) is able to work on windows 10 directly, mainly because the output is still DirectX 6. Personally, I didn’t achieve this goal, game didn’t start. Now you can find on internet the 2 isos of Flight Unlimited 2 and the 3 isos of Flight Unlimited 3 at no cost, as abandonware. In many aspects this game hasn’t been surpassed. Don’t forget the Flight Unlimited III PATCH 2.0. I remember you here the benefits of DDFIX 1.5.13 for FU3 by Jermi: · Removes the sky banding and haze/fog blockiness in the sim. · Gives support for arbitrary resolutions (up to 2048x2048, 1024x768 is the smallest that works). · Overlay flickering fixed. · Pointer trailing removed. · Clean overlay transparency edges. · New sun texture. · New lens flare implementation and textures. · Set reasonable defaults specifically for FU3. · Fixed stars. For running ddfix you have to edit Flight3.exe with an HEX editor and replace the first ddraw.dll by ddfix.dll. For performance and no game freeze edit ddfix.ini and remove Triple buffering replacing ;TripleBuffer=1 by TripleBuffer=0 Do not enable post processing (bloom effect) as it could freeze your game or the game radio. As I said you have DirectX 6 output. To convert or wrapper to a more recent DirectX, you have to download dgvoodoo2. You just put D3DImm.dll, ddraw.dll and dgVoodooCpl.exe on the game folder. In my case my config is Scaling mode stretched (because I like widescreen) and in DirectX tab be careful with the following settings or game radio could stop working: Videocard GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, Force anisotropic 8x, NO Disable mipmapping, Antialiasing App driven, NO Bilinear blit stretch, YES Force vSync, YES Apply Phong shading when possible, NO Fast video memory access. I can assure you the graphic quality is glorious. Finally, I do not set any compatibility setting to the exe but I run this program as administrator. If your windows 10 installation is clean, intro video works. I replaced the EA_LG.AVI file by the one from Flight Unlimited 2 (more spectacular) keeping the same name. In this link https://library.avsim.net/index.php?CatID=lgfu3&Sort=Author&ScanMode=1&Page=1 you have Ansgar Avermeyer AI Package, Christopher Low Seattle 2005 and SanFran 2006 upgrades, and a few more planes to install directly.
