Hi First we have to see what version everybody has:

I have EF2000v2.0

and the we will all need to get ICQ or some other chat program where we can meet and setup the game!!

Then we can decide on a voice chat program Ventrillo is a good one or Team Speak!!

Hopefully we can do this as I was never able to play Multiplayer campaign online it took 45 min to load damn DIALUP!! \:D

EF2000 V2.0 here.

Take me a few days to sort things out - joystick mappings, display settings, get familiar with English accents again.

This is cool.

V2.0 Here, I`ll need a couple of days for sorting things out too. I don`t have to install 3dfx version if it has no tcp/ip support. Actually, all I would have to do is install it in my system, map joysticks and fly ......

OK we all should get ICQ then we will meet there then goto voice i use Ventrillo ver 2.2.0 found here:

http://www.ventrilo.com/download.php

Get Ventrillo ill host the voice chat.

I think it would be easier to just use the Win 95 version?? not hard to connect but with the voice chat will be no prob to conn

for my puter I have to run a slow down program found here I use "WinThrottle" the BEST CPU slowdown program i found so far!!

I have a problem running sef2000 - its like its running in accelerated mode, which it isn't.

Is that what you were referring to when you mentioned a "slow down" program?

EF2000 V2.0

I've had every version at one time or another. This is the one I saved.

I'll try that program tonight...it's safe right? Alot of disclaimers on his site.
(and all along I've been trying to speed my computer up - who knew!-)

Seriously, What would you mod??

In (what) '98 it had everything. Only thing it lacks now (IMHO) is a facelift.

Steve- why, oh why.....

No, I havn't downloaded anything yet. Gotta get the 2000 to my liking first.

ps. you've been around for awhile on SimHQ, did you change aliases?

OK maybe not mod but there are a few things.

But I am having trouble setting up a multiplayer game it all works up until, where it goes to the room to see who joins and select the game I tried on both systems same thing.

See if you can setup a multiplayer game anfd if its working

perhaps something wrong here but the older machine is what i used to play thru multi with EF

All set to go with the exception of finding my key card. I installed win95 version and it runs well. Any luck in connecting multi as of yet? I`m still digging around for the key card, might have to go into the sim any try out each key individually.

\:o How do I authorize? I`ve never used icq.
I originally installed win95 version on my main puter without any problems. I decided then to install the 3dfx version in my retro box, but I`m having a hard time calibrating my ch HOTAS...sigh. I`m hoping my gamecard will fix the calibration issue. As for kali, I had used it back in 98/99 and haven`t since so I don`t remember my logon info. I can always get a new membership. How about we try to hookup on Sun at say 8pm est? I must say the 3dfx version is gorgeous...forgot the atmosphere this game has. Once I`m all setup I`ll have to post some screens. Now off to find the gamecard.

I really should be going to sleep, but everything is working smooth now. Too bad it`s almost 6am. I just dug up Janes F-15, LB2, JSF, Hind, Flying Corps Gold, and Taw. I`m probably gonna install F-15 next (I was never good at this one).

I cant seem to remember how to authorize you should have a popup menu then you click authorise i will resend and authorization when you start ICQ the popup menu should appear then just click Authorize!!

EDIT: I just saw ow to authorize, you will see a flashing message that says System message then click that then the authorization message will appear then just click authorize!!

Kali has a 16 dollar registration special vs 20 or you could try to find your old codes here :
http://www.kali.net/codes.asp

they say they might not be able to find the old codes \:\(

If we wanna fly the 3D FX version we will need KALI to fly I have Kali already

but will NOT be able to fly the 3D FX version yet im waiting for a USB hub to hookup on the old rig my joystick crapped out on me and flying with the keyboard is nearly impossible!! What would be a good stick to get would the newer sticks work on Win 98SE?? I tried gettting an old thrustmaster but couldnt get it too work!!


I was up till 5am last night myself flying the 3D FX version it still looks damn good!
Did you mean sunday today?? 2-20 Ill leave ICQ open all day today!! \:D

I`ll try authorizing again. As for kali, tried looking up my old codes and was successful, I just need to test out the numbers that were emailed to me. Just to give you a heads up, using my usb X-45 in the game, the throttle would not work....I tried everything, I hope you have better luck. Say, your`re not near NY are you? I have an old suncom (gameport) joystick lying around. I hope we can fly tonight!! \:D
Going to knock out the errands....be back later.
