Last week I wanted to renew my acquaintance with good ol' P3 OFF. I put the disc in and it wanted the CFS3 disc. (Ooesn't OFF/WOFF already have those files onboard? 'Guess not) The I discovered that I'd lost CFS3, so I bought a new one. (Just found the old one today) I followed the install steps (it resisted me) and finally got it done. 'Seems OFF overwrote WOFF 1 & 2. The icon's gone from the desktop, and the Control Panel list. I signed up two new pilots, then discovered that 20% of that page was off the bottom of the screen. 'Couldn't get away from that page. Did a CTRL_ALT_DEL and it said "No applications are running at the moment". (Oh yeah?) Shut down the computer, right-clicked on the OFF desktop icon and chose "Run As Administrator". Booted up and finally got to OFF Manager. Got a SPAD out and two DFW's and clicked "Go To Field". I can hear ground crew talking and engines starting, but no video. Just the OFF Manager page. I sat and waited for 10-15 minutes, figuring that it would shake itself loose,but no go. Anyone else tried to fly OFF on Windows 10?


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.

Hauk....haven't tried going back to OFF. But as you've probably seen, Win 10 throws up a few oddities for WOFF that I certainly never had back in Win 7/OFF days.

I don't know. I think I read in the patch notes that WOFF 1.0 had problems with Win10 that was fixed in 1.27. If that is the case then I would assume that OFF would have problems with Windows 10.

OFF Phase 3 runs perfectly under Windows 10. Installed it Months ago and I never had any Problems. Ankor's Shader Mod also works fine with it and gives OFF Up-to-Date Graphics biggrin

Please install OFF into a different Folder, NOT into your WOFF-Installation, for Example call your Folder "OFF Phase 3" and install the Game to this Folder.
For Example: D:/Games/OFF Phase3

OFF doesn't overwrite anything from WOFF. Both Games can Co-exist on your Hard-Drive.

You can't install an old game into the same folder as the new game's just a bad idea all round. Nuke it. totally, including any registry settings then reinstall I'd say.
