So I assume I just pop the CD in and install? There are no instructions
to install whatsoever. It can't be that easy can it? Frankly I would
like to delete all of my other versions of F4. I hope this game is
good enough to do that :-)

I'm afraid that's it Greg, sorry. You DO have to disable FSAA (or
knock it down to 2X) but so far that is the only concession. Darn
thing actually seems to WORK!! LOL

I got it on Thursday and played it all day yesterday (decided to take the
day rather than try and drive in to London for work.) I've not had any
CTDs, but I have had two complete lockups, necessitating a reboot. Other
than that it's been fault-free and I've been really enjoying it!

I don' need to disable FSAA with my X800 XT PE, it is weird though at some
angles it looks as though FSAA is not working at others it seems okay. With
4X FSAA at 1600x1200 I rarely see below 60 FPS according to FRAPS but I am
still in the basic training missions and such, haven't started a campaign
yet.

I ordered it from Simware at www.simw.com. Took about 6 days to arrive.
About 46 Euros delivered I think it was. The box was completely squashed
when it got here though!

I "think" its a Nvidia thing. I can do 2,4,or 6x with no problems on a
9800pro.

Mine just arrived and I didn't get a box! I wonder if it was to do with the
fact that it was an international shipment? All I got was the CD and a
manual.

Definitely got a box with mine. Maybe there was an option to ship
without the box?

I picked that option myself, don't need another useless box anyway, still
got my F4 binder right here. Hasn't arrived yet, though.
