shimmer and no take off

Post donbit1 »

Saw the info about upgrade patch for BOBll, and was pretty happy to see a win 10 patch.
Loaded game from original cd and installed 2.13 patch compatability in xp sp3 and run
as admin. after setting parameters started the first training mission just to see how it would run
using Sidewinder2 joystick. when the level booted up there is an obvious shimmer and could not
read the gauges on the IP. Throttling p to full power all the plane would do is stay on the ground
and roll like a bat out of hell. All the control surfaces were working the elevator in up position.
I tried different resolutions to no avail. I am running win 10 with a nvidia gtx 1080 on an hp omen.
I play a lot of retro games on the system and have not had any problem even with dos 2.0 games.
A reply for a fix would be greatly appreciated. Thanx [email protected]

Hello donbit1.

I'm no expert but I think that your problems relate to the 2.13 patch which is not compatible with the Win10 patch developed by Felizpe.

I think that the Win10 patch works with BoB2 up to and including patch 2.06. I suggest that you read the following thread which traces the development of the Win 10 patch and its evolution to a state where it is compatible with BoB2 patch 2.06 and contains instructions about what to do to install and get it running:

I do hope that this is helpful.
Cheers
Lofty

Hello Lofty Anstruther.
Thank you for the reply and the link it sounds like it should work.
I am going to delete the game then reload just the cd version and take it
from there. I will let you know how it works out. I appreciate the reply.

Hello again Lofty Anstruther,
Success! reloading the cd and following instructions on the link you sent me
I have it running and looking pretty good a couple more video tweeks and it should
be perfect. Glad to have it running on win 10. Again thank you for the support.

Spoke too soon. Graphics look good and control
Surfaces move with joystick game is not responding
To keyboard commands back to 2.12 till this gets figured out.
