Having fun installing the mods. This is another screen shot from 2003 - I have it connected to a widescreen monitor, but the game doen't have widescreen resolutions. Oddly, it didn't seem to affect the screenshot of Rammjager's P-51 V2, but it's messing up my attempts to take screen shots of other aircraft. I guess I'll have to go to some thrift stores this weekend and see if I can get a 17" square LCD for cheap.

While a huge improvement over the original, it doesn't match up to Rammjager's work. I only wish that he'd done 3d models and skins for all of the AC in Jane's. He had begun a P-38, and a long time ago there were some tantalizing shots of it as a work in progress, but he finally put it aside unfinished and moved on.

I tried a Geforce 210 and a GTX650, but they both had the same problem of strange distortions. Unlike my 6800 GT, Nvidia didn't offer a driver for either that was old enough to get rid of the issue. I tried an HD 2400 XT, and it ran the game pretty well. But not as well as the 6800 GT AGP card in my P4 system. So I blew the dust off a PCIe 128 meg 6600 GT and installed the oldest driver Nvidia lists for it, and it's running smoothly even with 4x AA.


After installing mods this game is capable of causing some pretty low frame rates even with a 128 meg 6600 GT. So I tried an experiment and bought an Asus HD 6750 with two gigs of memory for $34.00 from AliExpress. And it works great with Jane's with the most up to date driver offered for it!

I bought a Samsung SyncMaster 931b for a little over $10.00 at a local thrift store so I could take proper screen shots.
