Aloha,

Does anyone know of a Jet combat sim which can be conmtrolled w a mouse. I can't use my hands. I've flown flight sims for years, but w stick in my mout. I have a dirt bike sim which i steer using a head mouse. If i move my head left or right i turn thay direction. If I move my head up or down I lean foward and back. I blow in a tube ( which is left and right mouse clicks)for gas, suck for brake.

If you know of any jet combat sims which can b mouse ciontrolled pls let me know. I hav a good computer (p3 500 and video card (Vodoo3 3000) w alot of RAM.

I know this isn't much help to you, but there are a couple of "homegrown" flight simulators available for download on the net.

As far as I can remember there was one where you flew the F-86 Sabre and you could use the mouse as a controller. I found it to be very hard to use though. The game itself was pretty basic but not bad considering it wasn't done professionally.

I'm sorry but I don't have any URL addresses I can give you.

I seem to recall that there were atleast two of these games floating about, and they are quite small to download.

Again, sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Try typing in "pd simulators" or maybe "homegrown simulator" into your meta search engine and see what you get.

Good luck pal.

I know the sim he is talking about. It is called Sabre Flight Simulator or something like that. Go to www.migman.com.au and go into the flight sim museum (1990s). It will say that it is free next to the entry.

I think A-10 Cuba and F/A-18 Korea might use the mouse to control the aircraft.
