I got my copy of OIF this week and can not get it to run with OS 10.3.6, G4/OWC 1.2Gh CPU, 832 MB memory and a nVidia GeForce4 MX video card.  It appears that the game is trying to reset the monitor.  The screen turns black.  I tried different monitor settings but no luck.

Jeff was going to ask the programers to look into the situation.  

I have been looking forward to this game for years.  What a bummer.  I have always thought the Hornet was the best flight sim.

Sadly, this is only the start of you troubles with FA-18.

Make sure you are checking a resolution that your monitor accepts natively.

I came to this forum to find out why FA-18 keeps killing my dock, and to find out why it cant see my Joystick, and to find out why the sound is so crackly.... etc etc etc....

I have ALWAYS been a huge fan of FA-18 and have owned every iteration of the game.... Sad to see that some of the legacy problems with the programming made it into the OS version.

Ive heared of TWO other people with that same problem.

As far as bugs yeah there are a good bit. Try this beta patch for your stick:

66.159.17.22/FA-18-OIF-102b2.sit

Fixes joystick problems atleast. And soon Gameranger will give support.
