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.

The game works and is completely playable.
Sound works and music and special effects can be heard.
Saving and resuming games works.
What does not
The installation is a little unpolished. Just popping in the CD causes the installation to hang. The / directory in winecfg must be removed first. Near the end of the installation a message will appear noting a communication problem (as mentioned in previous tests). This appears approximately 7 times in a row. Ignoring it completes the installation
Full screen does not work by default, this doesn't really seem to be an issue and a previous test mentions using the wing*.dll's on the CD as overrides in winecfg.
When ending the game or saving High scores appear and the highest score may enter words of wisdom. This did not seem to work and Fury3 complained of not being able to write to a file.
Previous test results recommended removing the game video avi's. For my installation these were not even copied over (using typical install not custom etc.)
What was not tested
Anything past the first level.
Using the Wing*.dlls to enable fullscreen
As of version 1.1.17 Fury3 seems to be working exactly the same as previous test results (although I never tested this)

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.
