    Hello everyone,

    A big thank you to everyone who contributed to this thread. After reading through the posts I was finally able to get CFS2 back in 32bit mode. After some tweaks to my config file I'm back up and flying again and the graphics are pretty good.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Rob

    The way i installed it was by dumping disc 1 and two into a folder and clicked the install application. No having to stop grab another disc or anything. Probably wouldn't work anyway but you don't need to run disc's its whats inside them what u need. yank it out of both discs and put it all together and your ready to install. you will need to either patch the executable or download a no cd cracked one already been under the hex editor for you. I been modding Sid Meir's Pirates over at Hooked on Pirates the Cutlass isle website for the last few years but I cut my teeth modding CFS 2. Probably would never left CFS2 but I got the bright idea to get married so u know how that goes. My handle here is Deathwind Le Vent de la mort but I'm Pirate at Cutlass Isle.

    I'd love to install it - using Windows 10 - but it all seems overwhelming.
    I don't even have the CD's so how do I go about getting it?

    Google it?

    Used copies always available...

    Ebay? (several less than 12)
    Cex? (couple less than 5)

    Plus several other sellers...

    Found a copy. Doesn't work so well.
    Also no scenery is loaded. Missing scenery folder. Missing objects. Cant load missions. What a mess it is.

    FYI:

    Mr. Ruddman no longer has a CFS2 problem.

    Took care of it: quick, fast & in a hurry ... in a proficient Military fashion!
