Just installed CFS3 on my Dad's PC.
Complains about outdated drivers and has no sound in flight.
PC is not that old - P3 800, 384Mb Ram, 16 Meg Pro Savage Graphics card, Via AC97 on board sound.
Sound in Windows and other games is fine.
Anyone got any ideas?
Since the game is much newer than the computer the on-board sound card may need newer drivers.
You can either get them from the computer manufacturer (tech support-customer service) or from the motherboard manufacturers site.
You can, if you want, disable the integrated sound card and buy a new one, if you have an empty slot for it.
Thanks for the reply - I'll try some new chipset drivers and see if that helps, but I'm begining to suspect that the game is beyond the PC.
Any suggestions for a similar (not as demanding) game? CFS1 wont work under XP apparentely and CFS2 is US/Pacific based - he's into WW2 Europe.
Try IL-2 Sturmovik the original one if you can find one. Ebay might be a good bet. I played the Demo and bought IL2 Forgotten Battles but I liked the original demo better that the second version.
