Yes, it has finally been done!

Just yesterday, out of the blue, I got an e-mail from someone who I've never heard from before. The guy sent me some files and instructions on how to get Comanche Gold to run natively on Windows Vista and 7. After sifting through the rather lengthy and unsorted development notes he made, I was able to figure out what to do.

I tried it. It worked!

As some of you know, DavidC99 and myself tried to conquer this issue but never quite figured it out. I am currently hoping for the guy to reply back to my latest e-mail telling him of MY success with his fix, and then I can hopefully release it.

I did encounter a few issues with the fix, but I was able to figure out solutions and will write an easy-to-understand readme file to include.

Great news! Stay tuned!

Hi Rolim, I haven't seen your name on here before!

Hopefully I will get full authority to release the fix from the author. I think he did intend for me to kind of release it on his behalf, but I would rather get confirmation first. However, if, after a couple of weeks I don't hear back from him, then I will probably release it anyway.

Just hold in there a bit longer! neaner

We will stay tuned!
I have the Comanche 2 CD-Rom also. That was really crazy.
I don't post here every month, but I read this forum (Sim HQ) every week for a long time. And your site also!

Hi FLYBOY,

I think that you must to offer the administrator/moderator/ of the SimHQ forum to
create a separated thread for Novalgic's Comanche series games
because the fans activity and custom development of the CG game have gone so far and
the innovations are enough big that this process deserves more attention.
All topics about the Comanche series games posted in SimHQ forum until now
and the future topics deserve to be in one place.

Are you agree with me ?

I guess I do agree, ufolev, but I'm not sure that the Comanche series has a big enough following on THIS forum to warrant a separate sub-forum for it. As you know, this forum has recently had an overhaul and even some more popular sim sub-forums on THIS forum have been merged.

Further note about the fix. I thought about it and have decided to release a 'bundle' fix where I will include the Windows Vista/7 fix, graphics mod and my new Comanche engine/rotor sounds. They will come in one package but they will be usable separately, so you can decide what to install. I could also add your campaign, ufolev?
