Category: Main Games Action Games Fury3 Full Release


Fury3 is a futuristic aircraft dogfight/mission-based game derived from the DOS-based Terminal Velocity. The game was directed toward DirectX-based OSes (Win95 and Win3.1 under certain conditions) and has significant modifications in level textures and music. At the end of each mission is a main boss; upon defeat of the boss the player is rewarded with FMV cutscenes before proceeding to the next level.

To the maintainer's knowledge, there are no major patches or revisions of the game.

Selected Test Results

What works

Game installs (with some minor difficulty).

Program loads, able to configure options.

Game runs at acceptable speed and works normally.

Sound works but may skip.

What does not

The installer generates multiple "Unable to start DDE communication with Program Manager" errors. Ignore these to complete installation. This probably results in failure to create a start menu group.

During install, the user cannot change the installation directory. If you're lucky, it will default to C:\fury3. If not, it will try to install to a subdirectory of the install folder, which also works but may be inconvenient. Using winecfg to simplify the drive configuration for the install may cause the installer to revert to C:\fury3 (D:\ as /media/cdrom0, C:\ as ../drive_c and E:\ as /home/username seems to work).

Full screen does not work. The game must run in a window.


What was not tested

Joystick/joypad support.
Video playback for game story.

Additional Comments

When starting a new mission, the progress bar will complete and the game will halt. Repeatedly pressing space eventually gets the game started.

HowTo / Notes

How to make Fury3 work properly with Wine

This HOWTO does not apply to the Fury3 demo.

Ensure drive allocation in wine config is simple and does not have linux root directory as a drive before installing or installer will hang.

Fury3 stores its full motion video in the /System/Story subdirectory of the fury3 directory. Delete the Story subdirectory, or at least the FMV files stored within it. This should alleviate issues on startup of the game.

Loading screens between levels may hang. Hit space bar repeatedly to un-hang it. (Thanks Cas!)

-a workaround is to set the game in fullscreen mode, which will shrink the game to small window, but the loading screens will not hang.

This was written with Wine 0.9.53 in mind.
