FS2004 GW3

Post by Steve73 » Wed Apr 29, 2020 2:26 pm

TrackIR works fine in my FS2004. But it will not recognize my FS2004 GW3 install. It's essentially the same as FS2004, just a different time period. Thanks if you can help.

Hi Steve,

I think this is what you should try from this old post:
viewtopic.php?f=49&t=4653&p=24582&hilit ... ngs#p24582

1 - In the FSGW3 folder, C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games on my install, change the name of the language.dll file to language.dll.grw

2 - Copy the language.dll file from the standard FS9 install, C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9, and paste it to the Golden Wings folder, C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FSGW3.

3 - Enjoy, the TrackIR should know work in Golden Wings....

Nuts, that didn't work for me for some reason. Anything else I might try Jon?
