Looking for FU3 patch v2.0 US
Hi all - just found this forum and joined today.
I have resurrected my old friend Flight Unlimited III on my older PC and am in need of the patch LG had for FU3 to fix some of the bugs. I thought I had the patch saved to a floppy but cannot locate it. Anyone have it? As it seems all the old links for the patch found in a google search are all dead.
I'm looking for the V2.0 US version of the FU3 patch.
My system is:
Compaq - running a Pentium 4 - 2.66 GHz - XP Home SP3
1024megs DDR ram
ATI Radeon 9000 series 128meg on AGP slot
1920 x 1080 LED monitor
I can run 1024 x 768 in either normal or 3D mode. In normal I get all the taxiway bugs and the sky has that horrible banding look. These problems go away in 3D mode. In either case there is a lot of distortion to the distant ground scenery but it seems a bit better in the 3D mode. In either mode I'm getting between 36 and 60+ fps and that is with all the scenery sliders set to maximum right and haze on lowest setting.
Game play is very stable and the only lockup happens when I try to go back to flying after viewing the map. If I pause before going to map, sometimes it will return to flying without a lockup but not always.
I'm hoping the patch will fix these minor problems. I tried the ddfix changes but they do not work with the windows XP. If I can't find the V2.0 US patch I might just go ahead and try windows 7 and the ddfix upgrade.
Thanks in advance for any help from the TTLG community !
Flight Unlimited III has been on my list to play for a while since I found a "sold out" version of it for 1p in a bargain bin - I think the shop was just desperate to get rid of it!
I've just checked the disk and there is a patch included which has a readme file identifying it as version 2.0 so it may be the one you're looking for. Patch is here, readme file is here. I can't guarantee that it's the US version (and not some other version that they've released) but hopefully it's of some use.
