Jane's WWII Fighters was released way back in 1998. It is considered a good WWII Flight Sim in it's day. I still have my original CDs. I always felt that Jane's WWII Fighters has a good balance between Flight Simulator and Game. Having recently gotten the bug to play the game again, I set about getting the game running and looking as good as possible on modern hardware and operating system (Windows 10 64-bit). For a video game that, as of this posting, is 22 years old, I think I managed to get the ol' gal looking pretty good! The game by itself is limited to a max resolution of 1280x1024. However using dgVoodoo 2 wrapper, a 4x Resolution Modifier is applied that renders the game at resolutions that can actual exceeds 1080p. It will then scaled back down to 1080p with the proper 4:3 aspect ratio preserved (for example). This should allow for 1440p and 4K resolutions as well. dgVoodoo 2 also adds DX11 support. This enables the use of ReShade to enhance the game visuals even further with modern shading effects for a more HDR look. As a long time player of the game, I had acquired most if not all other major mods created by the Jane's WWII Fighters community fan sites over the years. I even ordered the Community Add-On CD back in the day. Sadly, these community sites no longer exist. The mod creators deserve much credit for their work! Also featured is a launcher I built that is styled after the original game launcher but with more options and features added. It also has an included Mod Manager (by Jonesoft) with many Community Mods included.
