What works

  • Setup
  • "kiosk.exe" - Kiosk mode of this game, offering only a few functionalities of this simulator game, but at least gets you airborne... :D
  • "fs9.exe" - Main executable works, menus are drawn properly if you install "ie6" via winetricks. But game crashes when clicking "Fly now!"...
  • No more texture bug as it could be found in previous wine versions
  • Joystick

What does not

  • Simulator crashes as soon as you try to load a custom scenario or change some parameters in the menus. You can only get airborne by using the kiosk mode at the moment
  • Videos in menu-system, minor problem


What was not tested

Multiplayer and extensive gameplay

Hardware tested


  • GPU:

Additional Comments

Geforce 8, Nvidia driver version 195.36.24 virtual desktop used winetricks ie6 needed for menus --- used OEM-disc which does not have any copy protection. Maybe a no-cd patch is needed if you use the original version (I prefer 1 dvd to 4 cds :D ) ---
