With my new CPU upgrade I'm thinking about getting a new helo sim. I'm interested in getting Apache-Havoc and Comanche-Hokum so I can fly all four helos. But I have a few quesitons:

1)With the latest patch, what resolutions does Apache-Havoc support?
2)I understand if you own both A-H and C-H, you can fly all four helos, but how is this implemented? What game do you launch to do this, and does it work properly? I'm especially curious to know if you get the enhanced graphics and virtual cockpit in all four helos, or just the Comanche and Hokum.
3)How do these games stand in terms of stability, bugs, and AI?

Thanks!
Mike

Not sure what resolutions A-H supports. I think it's at least up to 1280x1024.
Yes, you can fly all four helo's in all 6 campaigns. It works flawlessly. You select any of the 6 campaigns from the same screen. When in the campaign you can select the new helo's listed under Recon/Attack, or the old ones, listed under Attack.
You only get virtual cockpits for the new choppers. You can however get fullscreen cockpit graphics in any resolution in the old one's, not just 640x480, but it's a bit smudgy.
The game is very stable and there are no major bugs. The AI is sometimes good and sometimes leaves something to be hoped for.
But the major flaws seem to be fixed in the patch.

I suggest you get both A-H and C-H, you won't regret it. I don't think I've seen any game recieve this reception from the community before.

Unless they fixed the 640x480 cockpit view in Apache Havoc, I'd pass and get commanche Hokum
