This page provides an overview of each generation of Strike Fighters engine, including system compatibilty and merged installations. Note that the First Eagles games are listed separately, as they represent a different era than those in the Strike Fighters series.

Strike Fighters 2 EngineEdit

The Strike Fighters 2 engine is the current engine that runs the games. It is designed for compatibilty with Windows 7/Vista (both 32 and 64 bit), but (with the exception of SF2: North Atlantic) will reportedly run on Windows XP as well. All Strike Fighters 2 games are compatible with a merged install, which means they can be installed to a common folder, providing for a greater variety of campaigns as well as aircraft in campaigns for those with merged installs.

Strike Fighters 1 EngineEdit

The Strike Fighters 1 engine is the legacy first generation engine that runs the original games. It was designed for compatibilty with Windows 98/ME/XP, and can cause compatibility issues with later operating systems when installing to the Program Files folder, which is protected in Windows 7/Vista. The titles are listed on the ThirdWire website as being incompatible with Windows7/Vista. However, installing to a different, unprotected folder should allow compatibility with Windows 7/Vista.

Strike Fighters Project 1 (SFP1) is the first game of the series, and has been released in a number of formats, the other major release being Strike Fighters Gold (SFG). The differences between the two releases are minimal, and for purposes of modding the titles are equivalent. Unless otherwise specified, something compatible with SFP1 is also compatible with SFG, and vice versa.

Wings Over Vietnam (WoV) is the second game in the series, which was followed by Wings Over Europe (WoE). Owners of both titles can create a merged install by installing WoE after WoV has been installed. Wings Over Israel is the fourth title, and is not mergeable. SFP1/SFG is not automatically mergeable, but can be manually merged with WoE/WoV.

SF1 Series System Requirements (except for Wings Over Israel)Edit

OS: Windows 98/2000/ME/XP
Processor: 600 MHz or faster
Memory: 256 MB RAM
Hard Drive: 600 MB to 1.1 GB free space per install
