Well I installed 1946 on a seperate game partition under XP and have dual boot Vista that can access the game partition also.

Since I have a new sys CPU-5600+x2-2gb ram-8500gt, I thought Ide click on the IL2FB.EXE and see what happens in Vista.

Low and behold it runs quite smooth except there is no sound and the screen is darker that I like it to be.

Is there anyway around the 2 quirks? I didn't install under Vista so there may be a reg-key missing or somthing amock. Also running under OpenGL ad have tried moving all the sound settings. Noticed a red bar over the music toggle switch.

I have CL-Xfi that works well in other vista games and the latest NVIDIA drivers that work well in every game except JediOutcast that is also dark.

Thanks

works fine on Vista for me, sound and all.
