For some reason if you use pedals they are reversed in cfs3/OFF heres the fix

You need to change the following entries in your XCA file located in C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Microsoft\Combat Flight Simulator 3.0
The folder may be hidden so check un hide files and folders





All you do is make the origninal entry into a negative number and the pedals will work properly.

How to get trackir 1 and 2 to work in cfs3/OFF

You can get trackir 1&2 to work using tir_attack 1.6 (1.7 doesn't work so well) get it here

http://www.geocities.com/tir_temp/tir_attack_1_6.zip

Get it working in game by doing this:

Tir_Attack works exceedingly well:
Start Trackir proggie and minimise, start CFS3 and Ctrl - Esc out or alt-tab out and then start TIR_Attack - jump back into CFS3 and voila...

You can start Trackir, then Tir_Attack then CFS3 but sometimes Tir_Attack has poke errors.

Graphics Tweak by bzhyoyo

graphic card : radeon 9800 pro with cat3.9 (best drivers for cfs3 with ATI cards)

resolution : 1280x1024 with AAx2 and FSAAx4

Here are the settings I use in cfs3config. It's French but you should make out most of the things as they are in the same place.

HTH

FYI, I installed OFF to:
"?:\Program Files\CFSWW1 Over Flanders Fields" (?=drive letter)

making sure to keep the "CFSWW1 Over Flanders Fields" folder & OFF is working just fine so far.

I got a warning "WW1Autumn Light folder missing, the game will now close. You need to reinstall Over Flanders Fields" and was kicked back to desktop.
Solution: find the WW1 scenery folder whereever its placed go inside copy and paste to the \assets folder in OFF root.
You can get a few "folders missing" calls befor it all will work but be persistent in the copy and paste job and youll soon be overhead!!
And if the NoCD discussion is censored Ill be glad to help via @-mail, drop me a line!

I believe .dll's have to be "installed" but it's early and only had one cup of coffee! I can't recall the exact proceedure but:

"If it boots completely, you can use System File Checker (sfc.exe) to repopulate any missing or damaged 'Windows' dll's.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/222471/EN-US/"


Perhaps do a search.

Combat FS patch links are dead. They're now on an "aspx" page instead of "asp":

I am grateful for all the wonderful free Red Baron enhancements enjoyed over the years and am reluctant to complain about the difficulty I am experiencing finding out how to get started with OFF, especially as I am aware that many of the same talented people I already owe thanks to are the same people creating OFF.

That said, I spent several hours scanning the OFF website and Sim Outhouse OFF forum without finding a thread describing recommended system requirements for OFF or a basic tutorial for OFF newbies. I'm lucky if I can find time to fly in tournment games with my RB squad and can't pore over 256 pages of topics at a forum to learn about the next game I'll probably fall in love with.

So far I've learned I should buy the $25 cd version of CFS3 at Amazon rather than the $10 dvd version for XP only. That discovery took a couple hours. Is there somewhere I can "read up" on optimal system/hardware requirements and the steps needed to install and play this great new game?

I would have posted at Sim-Outhouse but my Email address leheureux <at> hotmail.com was rejected. I just got a message that allowed me to register manually, but am not able to post there yet. S! Hex
