    Pilots School - flight game with sources.

    You can change mission, create new mission, translate into other languages and so on by simply editing the ini-file.

    Download the game with the source: Pilots School.
    The game is written in Visual Basic 6 using my port DX9 for VB6.

    It requires DX9-compatible graphics card from nVidia or DX10-compatible from ATI.

    Great work Mikle - it works perfect on my laptop and it looks exactly like the screenshot. The controls feels smooth and it's fun just to take off and fly around

    Thank you! The main thing for me in my games - the fun from moving.

    Hi Mikle. Awesome. That really should be an inspiration to VB6 programmers -- it is to me. It works flawlessly on my old Acer with Vista and NVidea GE Force GE 7300. Thanks for sharing!

    This may help pthers.. I started on a Dell Win7 with Intel graphics, not knowing that it wasn't VTF (I assume from your readme.txt point, "Video card that supports reading textures in vertex shaders (VTF)"). So despite dxdiag.exe telling me it was DX 11 (which has DX 9.0c backward compatibility apparently), it crashed out pretty badly.

    If recompiled in P-Code or "No Optimisation" (instead of "Optimise for Fast Code" and "Favor Pentium") and then wraps line "Set RTMain = Dev.GetRenderTarget(0)" in an error trap that warns of Video Card Incompatibility, then you get a clean exit instead of a nasty looking black screen lock up. Incidentally, my old Acer is not very fast but still had a fully fluent frame rate without the optimisation.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks!
    But that's a different error (not VTF), probably not supported the format of the RENDERTARGET texture D3DFMT_R5G6B5, try to replace it with D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8 or D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8.
