Tfx fpu

My FPU 68882 should be arriving in a day or two so I will be trying it with the game TFX which the beta patch uses. When I first installed TFX though I did not have the FPU so I didn't click on the part in the installer which says install for FPU - do I need to reinstall (i.e. does it install any extra specific files) it or is the option just there to make the default prefs of the game like distance of view and shading defaults different?

Don't do it, it won't​ be pretty

An 030 would just be a slideshow, even an 80Mhz 060 only just moves it around at a barely playable speed (this wasn't a great port)

That's odd as now I have my fpu it's quite playable on the 1200 - a stock 14mhz machine with a 2mb fast and now the fpu (I have just run the FPU tfx version in the folder to try it). It could be that it relies on the fpu running at the same speed as the processor which mine is. Plus I have set the options to minimum! Not the most amazing frame rate but ok.
I have just tried the patch beta for the 020 but it didn't work at all then. Just a garbled screen.
