Below you will find detailed instructions on the installation of the different mods available for USAF. Please note that these instructions are very specific with items and that failure to install each item to it's given parameters can result in a CTD! Each point that is extremely important is highlighted in the color red. Each install has an estimated load time for the main screen posted at the end. These times will vary with each install and the ones below were tested on a current Win XP Home SP2 system with all updates. Finally, the below instructions are for a single instalation. If you want to install more than one mod on your system, you will need to follow the instructions located here written by Davide from the Gulf Knight Airbase! Thank You ;)

USAF [Pure]
1. Install the original simulation to C:\Program Files\Jane's Combat Simulations\USAF [Pure] When installing the original sim and it asks where to install the sim, you need to cursor down to the end of the install string and add [Pure] at the end so it becomes USAF [Pure] (yes, you do keep the [ ] symbols)
 
2. Restart your system and then install [Pure] to the same default directory that you specified earlier to USAF [Pure] This is going to be the default directory for [Pure] so if you did the install before as you should have, you will not need to change anything for the directory.
 
3. Install the [Pure] UI Fix into this same direcory.
 
4. Restart your system once more. Go into your USAF [Pure] directory and open up USAF Config. Here, select "Primary Display Driver" You DO select "Primary Display Driver", you DO NOT actually select your graphics card that you are using.
 
5. You are now ready to fly! The initilizing screen may take anywhere from 0 to 1 minute to load the main screen. Please be patient!

Super Pro 9.4
1. Install the original sim to C:\Program Files\Jane's Combat Simulations\USAF
 
2. Restart your system and then rename the USAF folder to USAF_OLD.
 
3. Install Super Pro 9.4 Disks 1-4 into it's main directory.  The directory it wants to install to is going to be Usaf instead of USAF. This might not matter, but I would go ahead and change the name to USAF (with captials).
 
4. Restart your system. Go into your USAF_OLD\Resource\Terrain folder and copy the 16 terrain files. Then, go into your USAF\Resource\Terrain and paste all those 16 terrain files into here.
 
5. Install the SP9.4 UI fix.
 
6. Restart your system and your good to go and Fly! The initilizing screen may take anywhere from 1 to 3 minutes to load the main UI. Please be patient!

Mini Pro 1.02
1. Install the original sim to C:\Program Files\Jane's Combat Simulations\USAF
 
2. Restart your system and then unzip the entire contents of minipro1.01 to Jane's Combat Simulations and NOT USAF
 
3. Go into your Jane's Combat Simulations folder and go into the Active folder created by minipro. Find the drive letter file that you installed the game to, aka, "HD C", and copy it out and to the Jane's Combat Simulations folder.
 
4. Run the HD C (or other driver letter) program and follow the onscreen promts.
 
5. Restart your system and then run the minipro 1.02update and follow the onscreen prompts.
 
6. Your ready to fly! The initilizing screen may take anywhere from 4 to 8 minutes to load the main screen. Please be patient!
