I have modified the file description a bit in the hopes of making this clearer.AceFlyboy wrote:Dear Joe, thank you very much for your quick response.
I have uninstalled v4.02patch as recommended via JSGME. Perhaps an addition to the download instructions may make it more explicit that it's not required for a straight v4.02 installation.
Something is strange about that description. The shortcut is simply a shortcut to \FA-18\F18.exe. The F18.exe file is modified when you install TSH v4, and thus the shortcut points to this modified file. I use the desktop shortcut installed via the CD to start my TSH-modified JF-18 and everything works fine.The error message is a simple error on my behalf, users please be aware.
When re-installing the original Jane's F/A-18 game an option to add a shortcut to desktop is offered. However this is for v1.00. Do not select this option.
I did and that initiated the Windows compatibility error messages.
I discovered this from your info.
Via clicking on 'My Computer', Local Disk (C:), Program Files, Jane's Combat Simulations, FA-18, & TSH v4.02, I saw the desktop icon "f18 Jane's FA18 Origin Systems'. Right click on that, left click on Send To Desktop (create shortcut). Come back out to desktop screen, delete the original game icon, click on the replacement one and the game starts successfully in v1.01f.
There are a few things you can try to correct this. First, are you running JF-18 as an administrator? Did you install it as an administrator? You can also try playing with the priority settings in the TSH Manager.I then played TRAINING, 'Runway Takeoff' took off ok but when selecting navigation options on the UFC got continually thrown back out to desk top.
I went to options set that up ok but still had same prob with Nav. Did not go to any other selections and shut down.
Next day started up, opened up game, tried TRAINING and was CRASHED TO DESKTOP and Windows error message. In INSTANT ACTION,SINGLE MISSION & CAMPAIGN it is the same.
It's kind of a fix-all for Vista.AceFlyboy wrote:Ok thanks Joe, will check if I am running prog as administrator, however don't know of what significance that actually is.
That's what makes this so strange. Very little has changed from TSH v3.06 to TSH v4.02...Video driver prob with a GeForce 8800GT? Never had probs with JF18 in v3.06.
