@tirta:
It is the patch for "Jane's USAF" version 1.02F. First, you must install Jane's USAF from CD, then patch 1.02F and then "Jane's USAF by Tcklbrry" version 2.0 beta. Do you have a screenshot from error msg?

Found a bug in this version, the sounds are barely audible. Master volume slider set to minimum in the options menu but audio settings in the options menu can't be saved.

Hello Tcklbrry,

great to hear that you are still working at the USAF Win7 Fix!!! Did you also have made something new for the good old IAF? I love this old sim too. Have downloaded your fixes for it at GulfKnights forum long time ago, but couldn't find them anymore on my HD. Many thanks for your outstanding work to keep those flightsim icons alive!!

The old Janes series is still one of my favorite. Sadly there are no good solutions for the Longbow Anthology to get it running with W7 64.

I have extra made a second PC with Win98 SE for my homepit to play those old sims, too. This machine has a dualcore AMD 3Ghz and an Geforce GT 6800 AGP in conjunction with an old Voodoo SLI. It's the biggest system I could get W98 SE running on. It's also possible to use nGlide on W98 SE (it's not meant to run on it, but it does perfectly), this way you could benefit from the higher resolutions nGlide makes possible for eg. in Janes F-15 or Longbow. Looks really nice this way. For dogged simulations like the old Digital Integration Front Line Fighters or the Novalogic F-22 Lightning 3, F-16 and Mig-29, which did'nt like nGlide as much (graphical glitches) I use the old voodoo system. For the good old Comanche Gold, thankfully a lot of Graphic Mods exist.

Hope someone, someday could make something like a Win98Box for running those old sims. But I think Microsoft didn't like this idea, otherwise such a solution would certainly exist.

There is a link at moddb.com I've found. It's for USAF, IAF and FA but I don't believe that those are the latest versions. Maybe Tackleberry himself can answer this?

Hi,
download link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2q4qAeNdhnrcjFwTVJNY18wNHM/view?usp=sharing

It is just patch included newest version of dgVoodoo. It is not mod. There is two version of exe files in base folder. "USAF.exe" for windowed mode and "USAF.fs.exe" for fullscreen(but menu is in window).

Hello Tackleberry,

many thanks for the new downloads. Still love the good old Janes USAF. Have you also made something new for IAF?

I made a retro machine in particular for my homepit to be able to fly those old sims, too (if the whole pit even ever gets finished biggrin )

P.S:

Totally forgotten the reason I asked. At the moment I'm dealing with the idea to run only one system, because it's easier to connect to the pit, but I will still be able to fly my beloved Janes simualtions. For USAF and IAF your patches are superb, for F-18 you could use TSH, I only need another solution for F-15 and Longbow Anthology.

I had nGlide in mind for this but I have tested it two years ago with Win7 64Bit and the results weren't very good at all. Curiously it runs perfect at Win ME with the use of nGlide for higher 3DFX resolutions (nGlide is able to work with this OS also).

Hi baltika,
I would like to do more for Jane's USAF, but it is DirectX 6 game and without source code I am not able to do more. frown I am not good hacker. biggrin Best thing would be reworked Jane's USAF engine based on DirectX 9 or DirectX 11.

Do you prefer better terrain visibility with one layer terrain streaming or less terrain visibility with more layer terrain streaming? I know best thing is better terrain visibility with one layer terrain streaming and high resolution textures in this layer but I do not know if it is possible.

Hello, Tcklbrry. Thank you for your hard work in making Jane's USAF run on modern systems.

Unfortunately, I am having some issues running the game. (Not the enhanced version.) Basically, I am unable to taxi because the aircraft wobbles up and down and tips on either wing even when traveling at 5 mph. I have tried an older version of your patch, which is currently on ModDB, and I have the same problem when taxiing. (The old version has the single core .bat file.) However, in that version the terrain has transparent patches. With your current version, (which has dgvoodoo2 included), the terrain renders correctly, and I have the same problem when taxiing. I tried limiting the application to run on a single core with process lasso, but it had no effect. I also tried limiting my FPS to 45, and that did not solve the problem, either. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to fix the taxi bug? I read somewhere that faster processors caused this only a couple of years after the game was released.

Also, I have been unable to run the enhanced version at all. The application crashes when trying to start a flight. The only two versions that work for me are your unenhanced version with dgvoodoo and the older version currently on ModDB. I am running this on a modern system (Windows 10).

Edit: Nevermind, I fixed the taxiing problem by limiting the FPS to 30. It appears that USAF does not like to run faster than that. I also managed to get enhancedv4 working by deleting the Reshade folder.

I am also having a strange FM glitch with rapidly progressing aircraft oscillation on yaw and pitch axis. F-4 is especially susceptible to this. Is there a fix?

Hi all,
I am working on the new Las Vegas terrain and etc. You can try test version of this. I cannot create terrain same as origin terrain. There is some map shift. If someone can create a new map to be same as origin map, its welcome. Finally resolution of the Las Vegas map shoud be 81920x65536. I cannot extract DEM file yet. I can extract fallback dem, but it must be in resolution 640x512. Its not good resolution for nice heightmap.

I've got 7-zip.still comes up corrupted.it's weird.Every single version of this patch I've dl'ed comes up corrupted. I've downloaded from at least 10 different sources and at least five different sizes.From 24 mb to 2 gb. I have 7z files all over my computer from big to little. They all work just fine. I've tried winrar, winace and 7-zip,no go. The one you just posted above says "We're sorry. You can't access this item because it is in violation of our Terms of Service. Find out more about this topic at the Google Drive Help Center". i'm starting to think it's a conspiracy. Someone doesn't want me playing Jane's USAF.

OMG, not only did that archive unzip correctly but, you gave me back my all time favorite sim. I haven't been able to play USAF in 5 years. Runs perfect. Thanks Tcklbrry. It's good to know that there are not only people out there dedicated to keeping the best sims running but , are willing to help other people get them working. Kudos.

Hi all,
I have updated the patch with the new version of dgVoodoo and ReShade. In archive you can find the official patch 1.02f, hotfix, reshade and enhanced textures. The official patch and hotfix is mandatory to install for correct working. Reshade and textures are optional to install. Nice flying.

Hi, Tcklbrry! Thank you for not forgetting this game and keep working on improving it! Installed your new patch. Everything works fine, but for myself I would like to clarify the points.
1. Which device should I select in usafconfig.exe?
2. Do I understand correctly that the graphics of the game should be adjusted through dgVoodooCpl.exe? If so, what settings should be there in the genaral, glide and directx tab, or I need to choose something one.
3. During the game, the fps counter shows "20", although the game itself seems to be running smoothly. Is that okay?
4. In the folder with the game I have 2 exe file: usaf.exe and usaf.fs.exe. What should I choose to run?
5. Is it possible to run israel air force in full hd, if so, how to do it?
Thank you again for your support!

Hi, Tcklbrry,

sadly I have not so much time for my hobby at the moment and so I'm not as often in the forums as I was earlier. I wanted to download your alpha version of Las Vegas, but the link is dead now.

Do you have a new link to the terrain?

Thank's a lot for your work on USAF! Another good old simulation which never should die! So sad that there is no more way to get the good old Longbow Anthology running on modern systems. Those old simulations were really great, especially the whole Jane's series, but some of them are nearly impossible to get them running again on todays machines, so I'm very happy if an enthusiast like you is working to get those old titles running again! Many thanks!!!

Hi fro4,

1) Usually first (Primary Device) or if you have more monitors you can select one of them
2) USAF is based on DirectX. You can select some settings in "General" and "DirectX" tab
3) FPS is dependend on your hardware. Around 30 FPS is good. Big impact on performance has "Antialiasing (MSAA)" in "DirectX" tab. "4x" value is enough and it looks nice too. Set smaller values for better performance
4) USAF.exe is for windowed mode and USAF.fs.exe is for fullscreen mode. USAF menu is always in windowed mode because it is GDI interface and dgVoodoo does not show correctly this
5) It is not possible. IAF is hardcoded in 640x320 resolution

I hope this help. smile

hi!

I am trying to edit weapons.ibx but runned ito checkum code on end of it. I can't edit.

Have you been successfull on this?

I don't like the idea of having only 2 SAMs fired at me... make life very easy... wink and not historically acurate.

After I read Dan Hampton's "Viper" and "Hunter Killers".....

thanks!

Hi guys.

Dudes, this is not working for me.

I have windows 10 on my laptop and i've being able to install almost any incomptaible old game in existence.....

Except for USAF frown which i love so much i want to play.

The patch doesnt work on my windows 10 machine.

The exe files just hang, not going anywhere, executing nothing.

I was able to install it and to play it in a crappy computer i have in my office with windows 8. in my win 10 machine, nothing, it seems im the only one :P i blame the constant windows updates, i guess. .

But i really want to play it in my PC.

If any of you could give me any help.

Please, i'd be so grateful.

I know a new fix is on the way, and i thank Tcklbrry for his work,

Hey Tcklbrry,

If you are still around could you answer these quesitons:

1) What is the difference between early and later patches:

My observations:

JUTPHQM->JUTPWSS->JUBT

From what I see, the RESOURCE folder in the first one is much larger than the other 2
WSS adds WideScreen resolutions that the first one doesnt?
Third one looks like the same Resource folder as the 2nd but adds the DG Voodoo files.

With dGVoodoo, the higher widescreen Resolutions have only 16 bit depth, while the JUTPWSS patch allowed widescreen x 32 bit depth

2) I had a working install with sequential addtions of JUTPHQM->JUTPWSS->JUBT to the Fresh install + 1.02f patch. Seemed to work fine, but all of a sudden my SOUND disappeared. In Preferences, the MASTER VOLUME slider was all the way to the left, but whenever I move it up, it immediately reverts back and there is no sound. Coincidence?

3) So far the BEST working install I have is with the first 2 patches applied, but I think probably I could have achieved the same result by JUST adding the JUTPWSS to the 1.02F install. IS this correct? Is there any harm to stacking up the patches as I have done?


Thanks for getting the old classics running on modern systems and keeping them up to date.

Every time I click on the download link for the update in post 4412682 I get the page not found. You have a better link. It seems I get this on just about all of them. I have the original CD's I got back in 2000 and they are in great condition. I just want to play USAF again. I had a load of fun with it before I started Flight Sim 2000, 2002, 2004 and FSX. Been doing that since then and now P3Dv4.3. I also have all the Freespace CD's. Those I did get to work on my 8.1 laptop not sure about win 10 though. Just would like a good link to download the working updates for win 10. Thanks John

What are the odds that the game I'm longing for at least a decade would pop up at a "random" web search.
And what are the further odds that only a day before Tcklbrry posted about an update that might finally make my childhood dream playable again?!

I tried an old version of the patch I got from ModDB, and I could at least see something at 800x600 on Win10 x64...

Please, for the sake of posterity, I encourage you to keep at it, I'd be forever in your debt, Tcklbrry!

Love

Hi,
you can try test version of the patch:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MFM_q2eYGBynAkzJOhK_wL3yIF54G7n7/view?usp=sharing

1. Copy a content of the folders to USAF root folder (mod is otional)
2, Execute "wine.reg" and confirm registry changes
3. Execute "USAFConfig.exe"
4. Start USAF.exe

I have tested the patch on nvidia gpu. I didn't test the patch on amd gpu.
AMD users maybe can remove "OffscreenRenderingMode", "strict_shader_math" records from "wine.reg" or registry. Be free to experiment with that.

You can use dgVoodoo wrapper as an alternative. It is a much faster but there is missing fullscreen support and some textures are flickering, mainly smoke textures.

Also master volume setting is fixed in this patch.

Keep flying,
Tcklbrry

Maybe you need increase "VideoMemorySize" to "512" in "wine.reg" and confirm registry changes.

@Dornil: If you confirm that incresed "VideoMemorySize" to "512" has been solved CTDs then I will change "wine.reg" config.

So I tried to paste this new patch over the one I got from moddb, but all I get is in the attachment.
No compatibility setting from Windows changed anything.

I can try a clean reinstall if you think this might help.

Thank you so much for helping!

Many thanks!!!

Still using Win7.

But the upgrade to allow changing weapons.ibx works!

I changed parameters for more SAM to be fired... and, well....... now it's pretty hard with a bunch of missiles cchasing you.

The original parameters are only 2 SAM on the air and they are fired 45 seconds AFTER the last SAM vanishes..

THANKS for keeping this game alive.

I've been trying to get this game working for off & on a few several years, I used to enjoy playing this back years ago when Jane's sims were big. I've tried extracting the older patch from the ModDB site with no luck, running the USAF one core .bat file, after the game starts up & the initializing screen appears it then CTD's. I would love to get this going again, any help would be appreciative!! I've read tons & tons through forums and through the ModDB page also. I'm running a newer i9 9900K processor with an Nvidia 2080 RTX card.

managed to get IAF working on Win10, but not USAF... it wildly switches between full and windowed mode... crashing right after loading up a mission. Any suggestions? Many Tackleberry Links are offline.

Greetings,
Cabal

Thanks for all your efforts!

I'm just getting back into trying USAF. I miss the game dearly.

I am running a windows 7 box with the 1.02F and Moddb patch on a fresh install.

Is there a link for a newer patch? All the links I could find on this forum are dead links.

Are there any extras I can download? HQ patches, ETC?

I cant seem to get my joystick working - a Thrustmaster t-flight HOTAS x- I can see it in the hardware section of windows as a game controller, and it functions properly there, but not within USAF.

Also, the game freezes every time I try to open the preferences section in the main menu. Ideas?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd also like to find the latest patch to Jane's USAF. On a separate note, I believe there is enough interest out there to get the old Jane's flight simulators onto something like Steam, Origin, GOG, or something similar so we don't have to struggle to find patches and go through these issues. EA owns Jane's simulators, but they're hesitant to do anything with them unless they know how much of an interest there is out there. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to make this happen? Maybe get a bunch of likes on a forum somewhere asking for something like this to happen?

More than 20 years ago I wrote a short guide on JF-15 focusing on some weapon data hex editing. Missile, bomb and sensor data were presented in database style format, unencrypted. Some 70% of attributes were recognized, just for fun of making B-61 nuke in the arming screen. That was at least few years TSH rolled out 1st mod for SuperHornet. I put the guide on some of most popular JF-15 sites (can't remeber if that was Psycho Central or something similar) but never reached a level of decent completenes. Anyway, within few weeks I got PM on some forum, some guy close to support chain for JCS told me that EA law department checked out guide for possible IP infrigement, but passed on as harmless. From current perspective, it seems quite interesting that GoG or at least Origin did next to nothing to adapt some of most flight sim immersive titles ever developed. Naval games as 688(I) Hunter Killer or Fleet Command were developed by other studios which retained rights to source code and thus those games resurfaced on Steam. Maybe it would be a good idea to get some traction and form a campaign to boost those titles on GOG - they seems to be most open for suggestions and feel for pre2K era games, perhaps they could disclose if those Janes flight sims are dead for running on modern systems.

@Tcklbrry: If for some reason you'd rather I didn't make this publicly available, let me know, and I'll take it down.

Hello,
I don't know whether it is working with the Windows 10 of version 1909. It would be better to patch the executable "USAF.exe" and "ddraw.dll" library directly and don't have dependencies on some wrapper.

I have patched it, but there are transparent holes in terrain textures. I have nvidia gpu, so I don't know what about amd gpus.

First, thanks J_128 for the link and Tcklbrry for the patch, really appreciated it.

I removed previous post about patching .pms files which wasn't necessary. Sorry for the confusion.

I'm not sure if it has been mentionned in the past, I found out (with NVIDIA and AMD gpu) that by doing "ALT+TAB" at the main menu AND whenever you enter a mission (Direct3D). For example, inside REFERENCE (the 3d object appears correctly afterwards) or before loading a mission file inside MISSION RECORDER (smooth playback). Somehow doing this will initialize direct3d and make things work properly on NVIDIA and AMD gpu which in my case no longer require a wrapper on all of my computers. Integrated INTEL doesn't seem to need it at least from the ones that I have. This was tested with the modified 2015 version Win7/8/10 (GetPhysicallyInstalledMemory) with updated fixes (i.e. weapon.ibx, soundmixer, d3d) that I took from the one made by Tackleberry in 2019.

Tested with 1.02F + SuperPro 9.4 + mission patch 1 + Tackleberry modified 2015 (JUTPWSS) :

[Win10 v10.0.17763.1098 ]
macbookpro retina mid-2014 i7-4980HQ@2.8GHz, 16GB, 2GB GT750M = no emulation required with ALT+TAB trick, smooth 1280x960x32
acer desktop i7-9700@3.00GHz 16GB, RTX2060 6GB = no emulation required with ALT+TAB trick, smooth 1280x960x32
hp envy recline 27 touch i7-4790T 12GB, NVIDIA GeForce 830A 2GB = no emulation required with ALT+TAB trick, smooth 1280x960x32

[Win7.32]
Toshiba L300 laptop C2D T6400@2.00GHz, 2GB, Intel 4 Series Express = no emulation required, runs smoothly

[Win7.64]
iMac mid-2011, i7-2600S@2.80GHz, 32GB, AMD Radeon HD 6700M = no emulation required with ALT+TAB trick

Used the Win-XP patch
[WinXP.32]
Eurocom D470V 512MB,P4@2.60GHz, ATI M10 GPU = no emulation required, runs smoothly

I still can't believe after 21 years... re-opening the first edition box with the original manual that came with it! Still haven't bought a flightstick yet, lol

Hope this help!

For me, the NVIDIA RTX 2060 was the only one that had transparent holes in the terrain but all the other ones: NVIDIA (GT750M), AMD (Radeon HD 6700M), ATI M10 and INTEL 4 Series did not.

Thank you to Tcklbrry for writing the patch and to J_128 for hosting.

Using wined3d I was experiencing some (infrequent but irritating) crash to desktops. I also had to do the alt-tab trick described above every time I switched between flight and the menu.

In the end, I decided to try dgvoodoo, which appears to have stopped the crashes and I also don't need to alt-tab. The only setting change I made was in the directx tab where I chose "disable and passthru to real directx". Whatever - it works...! Without that checked, i saw glitches with smoke.

I have a dell laptop with intel 630 built-in graphics.

Just thought I'd let you know.

If I can help, that's how it worked for me since yesterday (and after almost 20 years):

From Windows 10:

1. Installed vanilla version, from cd
2. Applied the patch, but for any reason I see in the front screen v.101, so I guess it was not applied.
3. Applied the Tackelberry "obsolete" patch in modbb, as i couldn't find any other appart from the upload by J-128, wich doesn't work for me.
4. Execute USAF One Core, instead of USAF.exe

I could fly, at 1280 x 720. But graphics fail sometimes, and I cannot see my game as you can see it in some older posts here in SimHQ.

I wonder if I can have two different installs in my computer, as I'd like to test the game a bit deeper, but I don't want to mess my actual install, I'd like to enjoy it a bit before. Have you tryed two or more installs of USAF in same PC?

Thanks

Hi acce_2012,

Here's my modified version based on Tcklbrry's USAF 1.02F patch (7/14/19) and previous 2015.
Includes the fixes that Tcklbrry made in 2019. Added compatibility with WinXP. Reintroduce the Jane's intro movies.
Tested on listed computers from my previous post.

1. Update to official 1.02F version

2. (optional) Install SuperPro9.4

3. Tcklbrry's 1.02F patch (7/14/19) from J_128.

4. overwrite with the modified "USAF.exe" file from the link below :

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sXxPp3BWRfACtYk3W0nQe3xY4mBOAoOv/view?usp=sharing

Hope this help, but cannot guarantee it will work with your graphic card.

If you have USAF CD inserted, I just noticed that campaign videos will trigger a crash to desktop with wine emulation. Either, remove the USAF CD. Or, disabling emulation by renaming or deleting ddraw.dll from USAF main directory. All this only apply if you're using my modified version.

Thanks predat0r,

I have tried your file, no luck. The sim doesn't appear, I can see a new "window" in task bar wich vanishes in some seconds, nothing appears (no logo, no spash, nothing...). My only chance was, again, a fresh install v1.01F (I did a fresh install too with your solution, after uninstalling), and direclty Tackelberry's patch (from, moddb, not the last one updated 7-4-19). If I try to apply the official update, I get same behavior, CTD without even see the splash screenOf course. So I stay in v1.01F.

I don't run USAF.exe, but USAF One Core. I have tried this same file (USAF One Core) with official update, with last Tackelberry update, with Super Pro... No luck. It's weird, I have no idea why, but is like that.

I can only run USAF in vanilla mode, with Tackelberry obsolete patch from MODDB. And through USAF One Core.bat

I play with an image, my two CD's died at least 10 years ago (they are 20!!), but I conserve them as master pieces.

I have been trying to play Janes USAF on windows 10. The first time I installed the game from disks on my windows xp laptop onto a removable drive, I patched to 1.02 with the official patch, then applied the Tackleberry mod from moddb below

https://www.moddb.com/games/janes-u...tackleberrys-patches-for-usaf-iaf-and-fa

I ran this on my windows 10 desktop and it worked and was able to play a training mission with no issues. The following day I tried and now am getting the following error below
http://www.bobsyouruncle.net/images/USAF-OK.jpg

on my xp machine the error comes up as
"the procedure entry point GetPhysicallyInstalledSystemMemory could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"

I also tried the instructions below but the screen goes black for a second and returns to desktop without running
https://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4523041/re-janes-usaf-by-tcklbrry#Post4523041

I am wondering if you are aware of a fix or work around for these issues I could try? Any help would be great.

Mr X,

Are you using Windows XP 64-bit by any chance? Could you describe more on your computer setup... what is the graphic card?

I have a dual-core desktop with nvidia 8800GT on Windows XP 64-bit which doesn't work also (blackscreen then return to desktop) using original Tackleberry patch and my version from previous post.

I am still getting the same issue from my previous post, tried a fresh install from CD's today, patched from the link below
https://www.moddb.com/games/janes-u...janes-united-states-air-force-v102-patch
I ran the game after patching and it says 1.02F so i think it was patched correctly

Extracted the files and followed the configuration instructions and still getting this error https://ibb.co/VVrLLp2 once i run the USAF.exe so I cannot get to the preferences screen.

Is there anything I could be doing wrong or anything I could try to resolve this? Any information I could provide that may help let me know.

I don't know, but correct paths must be in sim.ibx, CTM_DB.ini and tgen.ini.

Used default directory and it plays now on windows 10! Thanks for the help!!

So i am closer to being able to play but still having some issues. The game loads fine windowed and the intro plays but there are some issues with navigating the main menu. When I try to pick a training or single mission the middle of the screen has artifact of the previous menu screen and once selecting a plane the load button cannot be clicked to play. https://ibb.co/xJ0qcLs https://ibb.co/4R7QCXN

When I try a quick mission it crashes to desktop on launch.

Your install patch is "C:\" or "C:\Program Files\"? You cannot install to "C:\Program Files" because it is for 64bit applications. Can you try to install to "C:\"? Then I will upgrade instructions.

Yes, my default install directory was C:\Program files\Jane's Combat Simulations\USAF. I can try just installing directly to C:

Update:
Installing to C: fixed the menu issues, playing great so far now.

Thanks for the help!!!

I am having only 20fps (with GTX 1060) regardless of the situation ingame. Is this normal, or can I do something about it?

It depends on your resolution. I am using 2880x2160 and I have 25 FPS with RTX 2080 Ti. DirectX 6 calls are wrapped to DirectX 11 with dgVoodoo. I have 150 FPS without wrapping. But it is buggy when you want to run natively. Mainly on nvidia cards.

I’ve been able to get it installed and playing, but I’m having a hard time maintaining level flight. The aircrafts always seem to want to pitch down. Some planes are worse than others, the f-22 is the worst. I’m only able to stay level with constant pressure back on the joystick. Any idea why this might be? I kind of remember it being an issue when I originally had this sim back in the early 2000’s.

Hi,

You may wanna use the updated flight models (with correct fuel flow) : http://www.bobsyouruncle.net/downloads/04-01-02atk.zip

Unzip and copy-paste the files right into the "MD" folder located at C:\Program Files\Jane's Combat Simulations\USAF\Resource\MD. (before overwriting any file, make a backup)
Hopefully you should experience some noticeable improvement with your flying

Fly safe!

Hello Tcklbrry.

I have issue with your Janes IAF Patch.

The fact is that when viewed from the cockpit, the game runs with a very bad FPS on default resolution (I didnt change it).
When viewed from the 3rd person, everything is ok. (60+ fps. But when is cockpit view, then I have 5-7 fps on my RTX2070 and Windows 10.

Moreover, this appears only on the Nvidia video card.
There is no such thing on radeons. (I tried on my radeons notebook and there IAF runs ok).

P.S. Janes USAF runs ok.

Hi everyone,

First BIG thanks to Tackleberry and the work he has done on these wonderful sims for modern OSs.

I have SuperPro running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit very well. I incorporated Tackleberrys fixes for USAF, removed or renamed all sound files (this fixed a serious mouse lag bug in the menus caused by playing sound files, also exists in USAF) intro and exit videos, and hand edited the reference section so it now works( removed ALL spaces from the file ) Also the removal of sound files now allows running the game directly without the one-core fix without any problems.

Now I can just copy the install directory, either C:\USAF or C:\SuperPro, to another Win7 64bit machine and have it work.

Hi Tackleberry,

I have been using your latest voodoo wrapper on Window 7 Home Premium 64bit.
I have a question about voodoo wrapper, when I set 3DFX splash to ON in dg configurator I never see this so I do not know which interface is being used. No changes are seen if I use NVidia GeForce GTX770 (my card) OR dgVoodoo DirectX wrapper.
Can you hel[p me see the 3DFX splash screen?
At first I did not like the new graphics, very bright and washed out, but then I found settings on the HOME menu that fixed most of it. So now it is looking great.

Thanks for all your work.

***** Cannot get USAF running on Athlon 64 X2 with MSI board and integrated nVidia graphics. ******

I have a real puzzler. I have a Systemax PC, circa 2010, with AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ and Windows 7 Pro 64bit.
Now I have run Janes USAF on several machines with Tackleberrys patches and they worked great, but now on just this one machine it all works right up to the point where the progress bar starts to move a little getting ready to fly, then crashes with the error "program has a problem and will be shut down" or similar. I have spent a lot of time trying to fix this and no luck. This same machine has 8 other flight sims of about the same time as USAF and all run great, just this one does not, so I am really lost here.

Has anyone has solved this? I am totally vexed and out of ideas.

Hi diesel,
3Dfx splash screen is for glide games. USAF is directx game. If you want, you can see dgVoodoo watermark, which can be set under "DirectX" tab.
As for graphics there is reshade so you can remove it or playing with reshade settings or effects. wink
Now for better terrain visibility USAF needs more memory to run. Maybe USAF cannot allocate enough memmory to run.

Cheers,
Tcklbrry

Hello everyone!

I am able to install and run Jane's USAF successfully. I managed to obtain Super pro 9.4 too.

However, I am looking for HQ texture update (terrains and other) mod for Jane's USAF. It appears that the download sites for it are down everywhere. I am still looking for it. Does anyone have all mod files for Jane's USAF?

hi Sorry i was just trying to get USAF working again as my setup before had the game running in a weird unplayable choppy way.

i have instead installed it to my d drive and followed the setup here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vzod8I2-gTs

this has gotten the game running fine however ther quick mission editor "load" button does not work

now lookign back through this thread i find alot of broken links and something about super pro and using dgvoodoo - sorry but is there some current instructions i can read on what the right set up now is for getting USAF fully working ?

- edit: i applied the 1.02f patch after i did the above, as i forget to do it first, but then i just reapplied the above and it still works and runs fine and says 1.02f upon start up, however the Quick Mission Editor button simply doesnt load

what is hte fix for making the quick mission editor work?

Hello everyone,

I am glad to see people still wanting to fly Jane's sims as I do! After doing a lot of research and connecting with the various people. There are active communities who are still flying Jane's sims. Here are the links:

http://jkpeterson.net/forum/index.php

There are information and instruction on how to install various Jane's sim on Windows 10. It is being updated through times.

I was playing with my newly installed Jane's USAF in my win10 machine thanks to tcklberry, doing a lot of missions, gaining points, and all of a sudden i review my pilot score in the records section, and i have something like -61789000. That means no promotions or medals.

Is this a known issue, what the hell i'm really confused, anyone knows about this and a possible fix?

First time i see this since 1999.

Thanks in advance.

I used to have a very low framerate (~13-20 fps) too, but just now I accidentally found a solution: I switched ON vsync in NVidia driver, and fps went to steady 60!
However I seem to be having another issue: after a short time in flight, my craft begins progressive oscillations along yaw axis. If there any way around it?

Thank you so much for your efforts, Tcklbrry. USAF is by far my favorite combat flight sim of all time.
Is there any chance I could get a link to the latest version of the patch as well, please?

I have spent the last two days making USAF work, so I created an idiot-proof guide with detailed step by step instructions for Win 10:
https://usaf.webflow.io/posts/usaf-installation
I have also put all the necessary files on my google drive, cuz it looks like they are slowly vanishing from the internet.

Over time I'm planning to add:
- all the available utilities and mods
- Super Pro installation guide

If anyone has all Super Pro files to share with me - please kindly do so, this way I'll make sure everyone can enjoy the game.

hello, in Super Pro 9.4 I can't hit anything with AIM 9 (L,M,X), even a drone in a training mission, is AIM 9 broken in a patch or is it a bug in my version/system ?

Hello pilots! Please help me with finding a link to the latest TACKLEBERRY'S USAF patch, the links in the topic do not work. The file is on moddb, but it is written that it is outdated. Thanks to Ablomis for the detailed manual, everything works, but I would like to add the latest patch from Tackleberry to my collection. I would also be very grateful for a link to the HQ terrain mod, if there is one. Good luck to all and clear sky!

Hi, Fro4,

I haven't been around for quite a while but in case you're interested here's my dropbox link for the HQTerrain Mod : https://www.dropbox.com/s/fl33vyr8pi02k6v/JUTPHQM.7z?dl=0
The file is safe but it's quite old now so I can't guarantee you there won't be any visual artefacts in game.
I'll try to get my hand on the latest Tackleberry patch I got or try contacting him for it, can't make any promises, though.

Hope that helps.

Fly safe,

Andro.

Would it be possible for me to get the latest USAF tcklbrry patch?

Why is it only distributed in private now by the way?

Over time I'm planning to add:
- all the available utilities and mods
- Super Pro installation guide

If anyone has all Super Pro files to share with me - please kindly do so, this way I'll make sure everyone can enjoy the game.




Is your google drive link pointing to the latest Tcklbrry patch or is that just a mirror of the old one on ModDB?

I got it working with your instructions, but the frame rate is absolutely terrible even with the latest Wine3D dlls. It jumps from 10-25 fps constantly, with the highest FPS being a rare 32. Playing the game without them gives me a solid 60 fps but I of course have the terrain holes problem. I tried to use dgVoodoo but the game goes to a black screen whenever I hit "fly". I can hear the game's sounds though so it is running I just get a black screen. No amount of ALT-Entering or ALT-tabbing fixes it.

Does anyone know the settings I should use to get dgVooodoo to work right with this game?

Hi!
I would like to get back to this game to scratch a particular itch, is this guide the most up-to-date regarding this Tcklbrry patch and super pro?
What do they improve compared to the base game?

https://usaf.webflow.io/posts/super-pro-installtion

Can't wait to play it again!
thanks
