IL-21946-DBW (been a very long time though)

FSX                (occasional use only)

SF2                (Israel, Vietnam, Europe, NA)

RoF                (Again, been  along time, like 3+ years since I fired it up)

Warthunder     (kinda see it as a modern  day replacement for EAW)

 

Paying close attention to X-Plane 11, might jump on board. 

Waiting for Western naval aircraft to arrive in DCS before jumping in, F-14 or F/A-18 - whatever arrives first.

Sticking to just a few has its benefits . Have trouble remembering all the key functions of all the sims i have. Limited in time also. Just enough time to get some single quick missions in a few sims. Very interested in WWII so my options are limited. CFS3 and Il-2 '46 are my go to sims in their modified form. I have too many to chose from but i keep going back to the WWII era. Just getting into WWI now after a long time away. Just reinstalled OFF BHaH and like it a lot.Can't wait to get WOFF-UE and the new WWII sim by the same team later this year, Oh what joy !!

Same here! I skipped X-Plane 10 becuse I didn't want to invest in a new rig already (same with DCS), but as my laptop is now coming of age, it's probably time to seriously consider a gaming reactor.

 

IL-2 right up to and including '46 (the whole modding-thing really tore up the community)

X-Plane 9 (showed me the potential of X-Plane)

FSX (bought it, but it really is a bridge too far for my rig)

FS9 (which runs pretty well but shows it's age)

WoX

WoX2

 

Thought about getting into F4 BMS again, but didn't care for the whole installation-process. Besides, my rig doesn't want to read CDs anymore. This also kept my from re-discovering Lock On and DCS.

Pretty Much The Heart Of My System For Now Keeps Up With Everything

Biggest Problem For Win 10 Users Is Preserving Legacy Programs And Devices

But There Are Solutions Win 10 Is Designed More Along And IT Basis With A

Significant Increase In IRQ's And With Multi-Processors Physical And Logical

That Exploit The OS. I'll Never Go Back It Restricts The Hardware It Just

Remains For Driver Software Programmers To Catch Up.

Some Of Us Old Gamers Use The Same Old Tricks For Instance I Created A Forced

Install Of DXSDK_Jun10 To Use The Old Apps Like DirectX Texture Tool For dds Files

Also It Puts The Old List Of Files On The System If The Search Function Looks For

It x86,x64

My first pc game was Doom and still love it.Have a lot of combat flight sims but CFS3-(9 installs) and Il-2 '46-(3 installs) i play the most,  plus have tons of backups on a external ssd. Backups are necessary when modding sims. Tons of dvd's too (call it backups of backups ) . :crazy::deadhorse:

Now into Il-2 '46 BAT. With over 500 aircraft from every era it covers it all pretty well. From the WWI aircraft to modern jets with tons of maps ,object and more. For more info check SAS website .Best of all it's free. How cool is that ? Very easy to install just make sure you read the manual before you install .here's the site  http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php

i miss original ghost recon with all the mods.

CL

Why? It's still alive and well. I've got it plus the addons on Steam, and the mods work with it just fine.

  • FIRST EAGLES Series 1 for WW1 Combat Aircraft

 

 

 

IL-2 Sturmovik was recently updated with a new patch and some more BF.110 fighter variants were added. This has made the game a little bit more interesting for me and I have been playing it again and building some new missions. It always seems to satisfy a particular interest I have in WW2 Combat sims and I have found that I always seem to keep on going back to it.
