Looks great Hellshade - thanks for posting. I just signed up and I guess I'll receive an email at some point? Anyhow I was wondering if this sim utilizes TrackIR as I couldn't find any information on their website about it.

Reminds me of the Microsoft CFS3 trailer now that was a good trailer but the sim well we all know what that was like.

 

Flight simmers have been let down so many times with the trailers not reprecenting the released game.

 

All that glitters is not gold.

It uses a modified version of the same engine that runs Wings of Prey, I believe. WoP supports TrackIR so I'd be highly surprised if this didn't.

That's the joy of beta. You get to find out if it's 'gold' or not without forking over a dime. good.gif

The FAQ says it supports TrackIR.

would have been great to write some music for them.

 

It's just in beta. Maybe you could still offer up something for them that gets their interest? Lord knows you know how to write a proper mood setting audio track for a sim.

Good to see it has TrackIR support guys - thanks for confirming. I signed up for the beta testing a few days back but haven't received an email yet. Do I have to be selected or does everyone who signs up get a crack at it? :dntknw:

I think I'll hold off until some of you pass judgement on it. Worth the time and Safe or Not safe so far as gremlins go.

Again, it will be free to play. Not sure what the reason to hold off will be unless you just don't want to spend the time downloading it? If it sux,it sux. But for free, might as well form your own opinion instead of taking someone else for it.
