Welcome to the wonderful world of BMS! The 4.34 installer is a full installer, meaning it doesn't require the F4 dance that 4.33 U1 thru U5 did. Just click and go. You need to keep the complete original Falcon 4 install on your system somewhere for copyright issues, but then you'll never actually need to run that software, except for nostalgic value. *grin*

When you run the installer, make sure to NOT install in the same directory as your Falcon 4 install from Steam. Put it in a new location. After installation, to run it simply go into the new directory and run the Launcher, or create a shortcut to your desktop. The Launcher will have options for configuring different aspects as well as to the PDF Documentation. I always suggest loading the documents onto an e-reader or iPad for quick access, but some folks like to have them printed and spiral bound (over 1300 pages not including additional aircraft, real-world manuals, airport charts, and checklists)

Hope this helps get you started!

And keep that install folder for later.
It will be used when the smaller updates arrive.

Ignore the controller selection, just click on intended key (goes blue) and press the HOTAS button you want to use, throttle or stick as you please.

I had to configure the advanced options to enable the throttle - that is all I can do for now, and it works OK

I have to fly a bit later on to see if all is working but install and setup seem to be very easy to do.

Congrats Tom smile
Sweet looking pictures.
When bad ones pop up just press D to switch avionics to dogfight mode and follow up with TMS Up (or Left/Right) to activate radar if you want that active.
No idea on padlock since I'm a TIR5 user.
