Ladies and Gentlemen,
on behalf of the entire BMS development team, I am happy to announce that the latest iteration of the Tommo Inc Falcon 4.0 total conversion modification - Benchmark Sims 4.36 U1 - is available for you to enjoy RIGHT NOW!
BMS 4.36 U1 requires a legit installation of a Falcon 4.0 (all older and newer versions are accepted alike, i.e. Microprose, Hasbro, GOG, Steam, Retroism). The check is performed both at setup time and every time you start BMS. If no valid installation is found, BMS will exit with a corresponding error message.
U1 is an incremental update on top of 4.36 base, so you need to have the BMS 4.36 Full Installer package available on your PC. You can both update your existing 4.36 base installation as well as perform a fresh 4.36 base + U1 installation from scratch, as you like. See the installation instructions below for details.
This mod may not be used for any commercial purposes. Any such use may constitute a violation of the intellectual property of Tommo Inc and the non-commercial Terms and Conditions under which Benchmark Sims make this mod available to you.
Installation instructions (they will be shown as well once you run the U1 installer):
DESTINATION FOLDER: Update 1 must be targeted at the original Falcon BMS 4.36 Setup folder, NOT at your Falcon BMS installation location! After the update installer has been finished, it will run the Falcon BMS Setup program to either apply the update to an existing BMS 4.36 base installation (choose ‘Manage product updates’), or perform a fresh 4.36 base + U1 installation from scratch.
Please refer to: WIKI Installation page to see how to proceed with BMS update.
After the update, when starting BMS, the version string in the BMS UI will now read:
Falcon BMS 4.36.1 (x64) Build 26443
If you apply the update from an existing BMS 4.36.0 base installation and implemented the previous fix, make sure you only keep those fixes lines in “falcon BMS.cfg” (User/config folder):
A big THANK YOU to everyone in the BMS development team and to the gents from TOMMO INC who made this release possible!
Now download and enjoy! 🙂
