it appears this has been removed from public domain now
the link to Aerowinx is just to buy the newest $400 version, - i would be interested in the dos version from 2000 still, - is that anywhere to be found, or to buy even?

check if Joystick works with other games in dosbox.
If it does then go to precision simulator, escape, chose mission ready for joystick calibration and calibrate the joystick.
If you joystick dosnt work under dosbox try another version like dosbox daum.
Last resort use the iso file and install it under xp using the wrapper.

Seeing this become public domain is cool, how do I get the joystick to work? It seems to be not work right in dosbox.

Hi AAQARAB.will leave that for another time.have got cd image installed and is showing ver.1.3a-EE4 on the options page but the two updates are password protected asking for words from pages of the 1.3 manual when i try to run them.ps1.3 is running without it
Aaqarab 2020-02-13 -1 point
Hi Flyboy, if you are looking for graphics ps 1.3 is not that good. As I sai you can improve it coupling with FS2004 or Flightgear. I know how to do, more or less since last time I did it was 6 years ago, do you want me to explain it ? I will also look for files allowing coupling with FS2004

Just to be more precise, the game itself is in public domain, not the original manual, that is not included in the docs, the big tutorial is included, and it is perfectly legal.

Hi Flyboy, there they are, more to come.Are you playing it ? It is very good, in my opinion better then FS2004. Once you read the big tutorial you will flight easily. I have a program somewhere that allows you to see your position on a world map while flying and another one that is a good flight planner. Let me find them.

I Flyboy, Rick.
I sent some usefull files for this game.
A wrapper for XP, some lessons, Flight plans, a wind forecast.
Sorry I'm so late but I don't have much time.
I will post more of it.
Play this game, is fantastic !!! By the way , the creator, Hardy Heinlin put it in public domain, so it's all perfectly legal.

I gave up trying to run it in dosbox smoothly. Runs fantastic in win xp no flicker,smooth sound straight from the folder on the desktop had a look a ver.10 of this sim looks amazing

NOW! I expect you all to chime in with your results.
I'm running the sim BUT dosbox needs some tweaking...any thoughts
Rick 2020-01-23 0 point
OK! You need this patch installed in the game DIR (http://www.aerowinx.com/downloads/dst_patch.zip)
You will ALSO need SMARTDRV.EXE in your games dir.
Use mine -- https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MsUf-N9R7SkRd9yXwiw7ldiUQasoEGft/view?usp=sharing

I know how to couple with flightgear not with fs2004 , the broker doesnt work on windows 64 sys , you have to use XP.
Next month I will try to find and post the extra files, Happy new year.

Thanks AAQARAB for the reply and info, have got it running on windows out of the box on a my xp machine using the 747batch file no probs and zero flicker but when I use this on windows7 I get a not compatible with 64bit, got dosbox from the link will give it a go.the extra files would be great if you find them
by the way how do couple to fs2004 as I have this on my xp
aaqarab 2019-12-18 0 point
Hi Flyboy, in my previous post I made a mistake and named me mod, anyway I still have some program that goes with precision simulator for planning routes etc, I'll try to find them. Notice that till windows XP you can couple it with flightgear or fs2004 in order to have exterior graphics.

HI Flyboy, don't need to run it under dos , is a windows program just give it the location of your folder containing Precision simulator. I run it under windows 7 without problems , try again it is very worthy. By the way I use this version of dosbox , dosbox svn shaun http://ykhwong.x-y.net/ , less flickering and full screen.
Flyboy 2019-12-06 0 point
the mod didn’t work for me i get a Run time error 209 at 5946:00b on dosbox when I run it. The rip version of this game has a folder named 747ps and the mod folder named ps13 tried copying contents of ps13 to the game and updating but still the error. How else can i run this game if not in dosbox? the open 744 site has lots of libraries and stuff but confusing
Aqarab 2019-11-28 0 point
I just sent as a contribution an important file that adds lots of airports, sids and stars.
This is one the best simulators ever made. I spent many hours playing it , you can connect it to flightgear or flight simulator in order to improve the graphics.

Found some Updates. For this. To make it run on windows includes a installer and some other filles but i not been able to make work http://open744.sourceforge.net/

advanced 747 flight training simulator aimed towards realism nearly all aspects of flying the 747 from full cold start-up to shutdown using all the systems in-between. Fuel management electrical it also has full working FMC (Flight management computer) which you can program your flights.
The main window is 2D Made up of about nine smaller windows or flight instruments some with multiple uses witch can be opened by clicking.
HAS TALKING ATC AND CO-PILOT
As I said at the start training simulator there no cockpit window as such
Just a small window at the top left-hand witch shows not a lot. This is a purely instrument flying experience ( IFR ) The simulation has dozens of flights and situations to try from takeoff ,ILS Approaches, full auto landings. And emergencies such as engine fire. And volcanic ash encounter. And
full FMC pre-programmed flights.
Loads better than Microsoft as real as it gets 2004/fsx 747
The in-depth PDF manual at over 900 pages or tutorial at 79 page will give all the info to fly this baby. cant believe its only 39mb I’m running it in dosbox with some issues mainly
Some screen flicker on some instruments but I don’t know if that’s how it updates its data. The game was never designed to run in dosbox and some sound clipping any surgeons welcome
Great simulator highly recommended for flight buffs
