Can I play Pacific Fighters (+AEP+FB) as it should be. I cut the knot and bought a new mobo and a AMD Athlon 64 3400+ cpu.( I already upgraded my graphic card to a Geforce 6600GT and my memory to 1 GB). It cost me almost 2 days to build and reinstall everything but now I have no stutters, freezing etc. anymore. Although with Excellent video settings and water, forest and sky set on 2, I now have between 40 and 50 average fps. (Black Death track is 42 average).
I don't regret the money spent.
One question: I just played a random mission from Uberdemon's QMG and noticed that it was very difficult to aim to shoot. When I had another plane in my gunsight I couldn't hit him. It looked as if my bullets or whatsoever were going rather lower than where I was aiming. I had to aim some higher to hit him. What could be the reason for that ? With a Quick Mission from PF I never have that "problem".

nice system http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Check that the weapon loadouts are the same for the QMG and Uberdaemons e.g. if flying late Me109s could be loaded with 20mm or 30mm cannon which have different caracteristics.
there is a utility called snipers corner available which helps with shooting

Maybe you both were flying very fast and then bullets had to travel way more, being their "fall" more noticeable (specially with mg131).
