Graphic card not available?
Hi Guys, I’ve just bought Falcon 4.0 at Gog.com and installed it. I realize that F4 is an “old” game, but I can’t get my graphics settings to find my Graphics card (Geforce 970) so I only have the following options: Videodriver: Software or Direct3D, Videocard : Display and Resolution: 640x480, up to 1600x1200. But whatever settings I try it all look the same as if it uses 640x480. I’m downloading BMS v4.33 as I write this, but I assume I need to get my graphisc working before I install 4.33, right? So how can I the videodriver so it uses my graphic card?

no need to install old falcon4 just point to the exe of falcon 4 or cd when installing 4.33

First of all You MUST NOT install the original Falcon4, you just need to run the 4.33 installation and when asked point the installation to the Falcon4 original CD folder/path.
So what you need to do now is:
Uninstall original Falcon4.
Install BMS 4.33 and point the setup program to the original CD folder/path when asked to do so.
Read the manuals for anything you may not know. If that doesn’t help you can try here in the forums.
Hmmm, I uinstalled Falcon 4, and copied the file setup_falcon_4_220.127.116.11.exe to E:\Falcon4, but in the BMS setup I can’t select this folder, so it points to the setup_falcon_4_18.104.22.168.exe
BTW just in case, the setup_falcon_4_22.214.171.124.exe is the file downloaded from Gog.com together with the rest of the falcon bundle. And you’re sure that I DON*T have to install Falcon4 first to get the Falcon.exe that I suppose it wants?

we need the Falcon4.exe from the install.
if you can extract it from the GOG package, excelant, if not, ,just install it, get the falcon.exe out for the folder. that’s all you need.
then just point the install to the exe. no need to keep the rest of the F4 install… Just the EXE
YUP, got it working. Thanks a lot guys. The in game graphisc looks stunning, however the Setup screens are still low resolution ie. the Tactical reference screen with the different planes, weapons etc are very jagged. But, I guess it’s time for some manuals reading now with regards to game setup, joystick assignemnts and so on.
I know I’ll need some time to get the basic handlig and flying, so no need to go into combat for now, but I’m sure I’ll be back with more questions later, so bare with me
Howevet to wet my appetit, can you explain a little about how to change liveries (would really like a Danish repaint, if it’s out there), changing planes (F-18 mostly), theathres, if there’s others available. A link to wehre I can read this will be more than welcome, but no pressure
