What works

Help text, keyboard controls, flight.  Graphics options must be set first by running cfs3config.exe followed by cfs3.exe.

What does not

First run always crashes. Second run always warns about previous crash but game runs fine.


Create a 32-bit wine prefix:

winetricks -q msxml3 verdana ie8

Some people suggest corefonts and msxml6 but I don't think they're needed.  wine gecko doesn't work properly for in-game help text "F2" key.  ie8 does work.

What was not tested

Gamepad, extended flight.
