@blue_max any idea on this? I've read in the past Win7 has had issues but not sure if related.
Windows 7 isn't fully supported. There are a number of differences in the way the shading language has been implemented across the years and I can't fix those issues without easy access to a machine with Win7.

Hey Angel:

So I finally got to where I could start up with TFTC. But, it didn't work out - so hopefully we can find some answers that I can then take back to my club.
1) Installed XWA Clean from Steam.
2) Shut down Steam
3) Installed XWAU Mega Patch Nov 2021 (Update 5)
4) Tested XWAU Update 5 - seemed to work okay, but didn't go that deeply into it.
5) Attempted install of TFTC 1.0 (which notes it's for Update 4)
Installer threw the following error: SystemIO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars X-Wing Alliance\FlightModels\TieFighterOutland.ini'. accompanied by a long list of other data.

So, question 1: Is TFTC not quite ready to install on XWAU Upgrade 2020 v5 yet?

And question for the XWAU moderators - do you have a cache of previous updates, such as the the Mega v4?

You have to install XWAU 2020 Mega Patch.
Then Update 5.

Then TFTC 1.0
Then TFTFC v1.1

And no TFTC has not been fully tested with XWAU Update 5 yet.
That's not to say it won't work but it will be completely compatible until TFTC v1.2

Okay, I think I misread something...lol

I made the assumption that the XWA 2020 Mega Upgrade incorporated all the previous updates, 1-5, and XWAU was providing the "everything" download, and a patch-up download for those who were already running Update 4.

So, I've got it installed now. I've been looking forward to this for a while now...

Thanks, Ace!
