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 Vista it crashes afterward.

Mount TFX directory and CD like normal in DOSBOX and run CONFIG.EXE

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 the physical CD drive volume, whereas in DOSBOX I was mounting the CD drive as D, hence: "start DID=D: tfx"

Running

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