Hello everyone, I want to share something here. After researching, experimenting, and testing with the various tools, I have found a way to get Jane's IAF and USAF running on windows 10.

It is big thanks to the people out there who made this possible. They made the tools that allows old computer games / simulation from 1990s to work with Windows 10 and being able to use Direct X and OpenGL features.

This week, I will work on an instruction on how to run Jane's FA's true resolution ratio aspect on monitor's native resolution, and running Jane's IAF and USAF on Windows 10. I am planning on installing Jane's USAF big mod pack known as Super Pro 9.4 soon. At the same time, I also am able to run Jane's WWII fighters with their true resolution ratio aspect as well.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are screenshots of Jane's USAF running on 1920 x 1080 with reshader on (SMAA, HDR, and other shades features):
NOTE: Someone added reshade and tweaked it for Jane's USAF. So the credit goes to him/her.

Here are screenshots of Jane's IAF running on much lower resolution (Their engine is more limited, compared to Jane's USAF) with reshader on (SMAA and HDR enabled):
NOTE: I managed to get reshade working in Jane's IAF.

I am also doing some experiment on using reshade to test SMAA and HDR in Jane's Fighter Anthology:

NOTE: I am also able to keep a true aspect ratio locked in Jane's FA while keeping my monitor's true resolution at 1920 x 1080.

RESHADE ENABLED (HDR + SMAA)

Here are screenshots with Jane's WWII Fighters 2020 edition.
NOTE: Someone managed to convert Jane's WWII fighters into Windows 10 computability version with reshade included.

This is great I have all these sims and gave a bunch of extras to DukeB_120th as well. So where do you go to get the updates to fly these sims again?

USAF looked so cutting edge back then when it came out and now I look and I realize how spoiled future generations are with graphics.
We used to think Falcon 4 and USAF were like "real" graphics but oh my.... DCS ruined that standard ha!
