TFX was one of the best flight simulators available at the time. The original box came with a key reference card, and a hefty manual detailing the various missile payloads, planes and equipment available in the game as they are in real life.

Install

Double click INSTALL.EXE from the CD to bring up a DOS install screen. On my Vista box it crashes afterward but this can be ignored.

Mount TFX directory and CD like normal in DOSBOX and run CONFIG.EXE to setup sound, keyboard, joystick, detail levels and then run TFX.BAT

NOTE: If this does not work, you may need to manually change the TFX.BAT file. On my system the file had

start DID=E: tfx

where E is my physical CD drive volume, whereas in DOSBOX I was mounting the CD drive as D, hence the altered BAT file:

start DID=D: tfx

Running

Runs smoothly on 'Military' simulation level with CD Audio and digital.
