Hi guys,

I could not find the FAQ or thread in the forum which tells how to install CFS3.1 to make it work in Windows 10 before installing WOFF. I've currently have Windows 10 version 1909 on my new pc.
Could someone please direct me to the CFS3.1 install FAQ or thread or again give me the proper steps for installing CFS3.1? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi RedOwl, I don't think you actually "need" it, but you do have to own a license for it (you know, have purchased it at some point in history and the disc is somewhere but you just can't find it right now.) WOFF UE / PE include and install the .exe as part of the whole install.

What you do need to install separately is DirectX 9 which the WOFF FAQ describes and provides the link to I believe.

Just to let you know, CFS3 will work in Windows 10, but you must turn off the AA in the CFS3 control panel for it to work.

CPU = i9 9900K, GPU = RTX 2080 Ti, Monitor = 32" 4K G-sync

I am moving this to the technical section as it's already covered in the WOFF UE FAQ. See the first few sections on installing WOFF and what is required.

For the record you do NOT need to install or have CFS3 disk inserted, to install or fly WOFF. WOFF does NOT look for nor needs a CFS3 install. We just require you to own it for licensing/legal reasons.

FAQ available on this page.
