Using RB3D not a patched RB_2 so maybe the problem is here I dunno. NP though cause maybe the report I can give pinpoint the troubles. All modifications/third party patches removed - full install of RB3D game.
installed Glidos v1.18
using explorer copied the Openglide config changes made per CraigG earlier post (re: options EnableMMx=1, CreatWindow=1,...)
copied the 2x.dll file into the RedBaron root directory
goto game via desktop
Error message at start of game "older glide...contact/see card manf...etc"
Set preferences of game to glide mode, 800x600, no shadows, clouds, low prop animation, large tiles, smooth terrain, slider bars for detail set to max, combat details on, max detail box off.
Entry into campaign mode ok, able to navigate all windows for pilot simulation game info.
Went to 'next mission' and flight briefing screens ok
no Start up screen but the engine sound was there (all sounds normal btw) - a solid pale grey blue appeared with cursor like a Voodoo card (had a Voodoo3 years ago)
plane then appears normal on field but field tile is missing in exterior view. Joystick (M$ FF2 programmed to emulate keyboard) Hat switch views make it appear.
started takeoff terrain files are normal
Trees! Yahoo! my seeing eye flight dog Spike went nuts 😁 and so did I when he saw the trees like the old glide days.
during flight some tiles vanished/reappear intermittent and replaced with sky like colors
no texts available or fps counters..., unable to call up map and mission kneeboard (keypad #5) Instead it (screen) here started to lock up and flash to the pale blue/grey.
was able to exit via screen and cursor buttons (still no text) return to pilot details or campaign 'rooms' ok
So slap me silly that was close enough I sent Laser Point a payment for the unlock request as a tribute. Hey it is worthy of the efforts you all have/are making here <g> 😀 to me. So no guilt trips here about sending it.
enough said on that back to report.
