    Are thsi requirements completely accurate?

    coz says this in the min ones:

    64MB DirectX 9.0c Compliant Shader 2.0 Video Card*

    At the time of the 64Mb cards shader 2.0 was not very common as far I know

    and then this:

    *Supported Video Cards at Time of Release
    ATI® Radeon® 8000/9000/X series
    NVIDIA® GeForce® 3/4/FX/6/7 Series

    Radeon 8000/9200 and Geforce 3/4Ti didn't have shaders 2.0 were 1.1

    It seems ubi juss have some general requieremnts they use them when print the boxes but they sometimes don't seems chek well just print them on the box

    It reminds me when I bought POP T2T and King Kong and the reqs said dthe Geforce 4MX was not supported but worked those games for me on that card

    Steam website selling this game LIES about the system specs require to play! I paid, waited TWENTY HOURS for the download to finish, and it won't run!

    Naturally, a week later, no response from Tech Support.

    System requirements, windows version support...


    Pretty much necro-ing this forum, but after fiddling around with the new windows 10 creators update, and after contacting ubisoft about why they removed it from the steam store(to wich their support staff replied within 20 hours!), I do feel the need to share some information on how to get the game running on modern systems:

    - Windows XP: Works
    - Windows Vista: Works with service pack 2 and compatibility mode set to windows XP, you do need a local administrator account to install and run it.
    - Windows 7&8: Install the game to another directory then c:\program files\etc... install it to for instance C:\BA2, set compatibility mode to WinXP SP3, install and run as local admin.
    - Windows 10 RTM: The game will be able to run ONCE, if you unpack directX8 files into your install directory, after that you have to reinstall it to get it running a second time once.
    - Windows 10 with the applied creators update(Build 16275): Install it, and it just works, no fiddling with settings needed whatsoever.

    Now there still is the issue of multiplayer servers from ubisoft no longer running(the xbox360 version still has functional online MP!), but you can use VPN or Tunngle to set up a virtual LAN link with your buddies to fly with one another or against eachother.

    To Ubisoft: The community who has been working on keeping this title playable was a bit saddened that you took it out of the steam store, when now there is an out-of-the-box solution to get the game running again, while we are all very aware that the game is over a decade old bynow, there is no other game with a similar setting, valid flight model(HAWX was too easy) or co-op multiplayer scenario's on the market, the stuff Gajin put out was less polished in every way, and all support was dropped when they came out with WoWarplanes. If you decide to keep it off of steam, please negotiate with Good Old Games for a redistribution, or put it in your own store so new licenses can still be obtained. Ofcourse there are people still interested in a game in a similar style or a strict combat space sim. While you never see a flightstick on the shelves these days, you can get descent HOTAS systems for under 50 USD now from both Speedlink and Thrustmaster through webshops, there is a market, not a large one, but one can always hope...
