Demo has a nice look to it & my FA/IAF stick progam flys it without many changes.

I think it will however take a lot more horsepower to run then many people expected. It is smooth with all options on high on my 464/256MB TNT2U machine but some of the options needed to be scaled back to get the same apperent preformance on my 300/126MB I740 system.

Game is D3D only & a glide (voodoo2) or open gl card will default to D3D.

Flight model & avionics are simplified & similar to IAF. So I would place this solidly in the "FUN" sim catagory & also an excellect game for newbies to get their feet wet.


Those of us in the hard core side of the hobby will have to wait for the F-18 sim in January to get a high-fi sim from Janes

Bear, I too have that crappy i740 on my pii450 (only 64m ram) and I also had to scale the graphics down some. Is there a "zoom" option like in Fighters Anthology to see the planes closer?

The - & = keys on the main keyboard & the +/- on the KP will zoom, but not in all views. There does not seem to be the same zoom features that FA has.
