Hello, I've been trying to run Jane's F/A-18 on my Win10 laptop. Menus work fine (with sound), but I'm getting CTD when I try to launch flight. I've tried launching various Training missions and Instant Action, all fail.
- installed @ C:\Games\Jane's Combat Simulations/FA-18
- installed patch 1.01F
- installed TSH 4.02; config'd to use mod
- installed DXWnd v2_05_18; using DXWnd (as Admin) to launch F18.exe
- Installed nGlide v2.10
- Cyborg 3D USB stick (throttle, rudder, hat, etc.)
- AMD FirePro M5100 (graphics)
In DXWnd, I tried importing the included Janes FA18 config; it didn't work, so I've also tried starting a new config from scratch with various tweaks. I installed nGlide after those attempts didn't work. Nothing I've done has worked to get this sim to fly. Can I get some advice / help? Has anyone had success getting this sim to work on Win10?
I've read lots of posts here and there, tried lots of things already; have uninstalled / reinstalled several times, tried various versions of mods and patches. Many of the posts I've read claiming success on x64 pertain to Win8, just a few refer to Win10; everything seems at least a year old or more, too. Did Win10 kill this game?
I'm running Falcon 4 (Steam) just fine, but this sim (F/A-18) was my all-time favorite back in the day, I really miss it; would love to get it working again. I do still have a couple older computers, I could resurrect one of them to install it elsewhere, but I'd like to make it work on my "main" machine, if possible.
Thanks in advance for any help / advice.
