JetFighter IV Update 4

Windows 2000 Keyboard Problem - Keyboard response in the simulator on Windows 2000 was sometimes over 1 minute delayed! This problem has been fixed for Windows 2000 users.

Main Menu Background Garbled on ATI Graphics Hardware - Main menu background looked 'crazy' on some ATI graphics hardware. For some reason, certain ATI graphics hardware, particularly that found in laptops, use a ARGB_1555 framebuffer instead of the much more common (and better looking) RGB_565. This problem should be corrected for all such hardware.

HUD Text Solid Blocks on ATI Hardware - On some ATI boards, the text in the simulator shows up as solid blocks. This problem should be solved for all ATI hardware. Please send us an email if your HUD text still shows up as solid blocks.
Force Feedback - The new simulator will detect and use a force feedback joystick if one is available.

USB Throttle Support - Some USB throttles were not being used properly in the simulator. Newer throttles changed the 'axis' that data is available from. The version attempts to determine the correct axis automatically. If this does not work, there is a setting available in JF4.INI to override the default behavior of the throttle.
The settings are as follows:
In the [Sim Controls] section of JF4.INI, the "throttleAxis" setting controls how the simulator will access the throttle:
- throttleAxis == 0 Automatically detect the correct axis. Should work with 99% of all throttles.
- throttleAxis == 1 Use the "lZ" value, this will support "old style" sticks and throttles.
- throttleAxis == 2 Use the rglSlider[0] value. This will support "new style" sticks and throttles.

Stuttering Sounds When Launched from AutoPlay - On some systems, the sound would stutter and sound garbled when the game was launched from the autoplay application on the CD. When running via the start menu, sounds were OK.
We believe DirectSound does not initialize properly on some machines when the CD-ROM drive is the "current directory." The AutoPlay program has been modified to set the current directory to where JetFighter IV is installed. Current users should simply launch JetFighter IV from the Start Menu to avoid this problem.

Jetfighter IV Update 4

I am trying to have Jet Fighter IV run on Windows XP but it won't seem to work. I can get to the options screen but when I go to "fly" it locks-up. Any suggestions or patches or is this game simply not able to run on XP?

Jetfighter IV Update 4

all you have to do is go into the jf4.ini file which contains a text file of the games configuration settings. Find the line that says simuserloaderthread = 1 and change the value to zero

I can't seem to find the update for Jetfighter 4 anywhere. Tallonsoft has nothing for any of the Jetfighter games anymore.CAn someone E-mail me and tell me where to get the patch? Or perhaps one of you has the update and can send it to me.Thanks.

Jetfighter IV Update 4

on the keyboard the key M for the Map when I press it more than twice the game quits out and goes back to windows. This has happened many times, on different video cards. ATI Graphics, and Invida Graphics Cards as well. What is the issue? What patch is there to help correct this?Thanks;Joseph

I bought Jetfighter4 because it apparently will run on XP, according to the words written in English on the label. I'm wondering how come I can't get it to run on my PC that exeeds the requirements for the game. Will it actually run on XP or was I just another victim of false advertisment that seems to run out of control in this country? P.S. I sure would like to know how to sell something that doesnt work and make a few million in the process, but then again, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night because I have this little drawback in life, it's called HONESTY.

Jetfighter IV Update 4

Hey guys,The real fix for XP is to change the compatability of the file named JF4Sim.exe to "run this program in compatability mode for windows 95."I did this after trying to first fix, which didn't work. I can now play a game I've had for 6 months.

Jetfighter IV Update 4

Jetfighter IV Update 4

Well, to all you frusertated XP users. I bought this game for 5 bucks at staples. Went home and installed it on XP. IT didn't work-instead of flipping out, I merely followed these simple instructions and have been enjoying JFIV since then. I give full credit to larry whitaker for the instructions** go to "Play Jet Fighter 4right clickscroll to propertiesonce in properties click "find target"look for INI file or Configuration Settings.once opened scroll down to simuseloader thread AGAIN change the 1 to a 0(zero) then "save as"restart game

Jetfighter IV Update 4

This game is alot of fun EVEN with the bugs. AFTER youve figured out the ""HIT BUG"" its a blast.If you have XP DO NOT start loading in the "so called game patches".they dont work and have never worked correctly.If your game freezes/locks complelely uninstall it(manual removal of all jf4 files)then reload it with the instructions in my prior post.For 5$ how wrong can you go????.Play some offline games to get the basics down and we hope to see you in a room!!!!!oh and set up your joystick BEFORE you enter the room LOLOLOLOLOLOL JK SLASH

Kenneth Lawingat 12:43 1/11/2004i download jetfighterIV-when i try to fly it the exact phrase(D3DX_INCORRECT MODE) I NEED HELP--MYCOMPUTER IS DELL4600 WITH ADDED NVEDIA VERTO 2D/3D GRAPHICS CARD--VGA+S VIDEO. I HAVE A SAITEK CYBORG GRAFIC AND I CANNOT FLY THIS GAME>ON WINDOWXP--CAN AYONE HELP__PLEASE!!!KLAWKEN@AOL.COM.Hey Ken, I too had this same problem, and it was pissing me off. I found out how to fix it though, so I thought I'd help you out. Your are getting this error because your graphics card doesn't support the resolution you set (I believe, but don't kill me if I'm wrong). Try starting the game, going into options, and changing your resolution to the lowest setting, and if that works for you, just keep working you way up until you find the one that you like best and works.

Jetfighter IV Update 4

apply the configuratio file change as mentioned on here and abroad, and then run the #4 path to the game... essentially, the game runs perfect after that. unfortunately, i dont like the game very much, maybe i have to go spend more time on it. haha anyhow, full res of my monitor support, all details, hi res scene, no lag whatsoever on a 2003-2004 era mode computer.
