Help fund the Strike Fighters 2 Windows 10 update!

Recommended Posts

I think what Strike Fighters 2 lacks is better Track IR support, Cooperative Multiplayer implementation (Falcon BMS and DCS world have it). Another thing would be to improve the building and ground   textures (if it could look like Lock On: Modern Air Combat textures) because it has good textures even today. Improvements in some cockpit would also be important, as for air refueling I don't think it's important. Maybe one day all good community-made Mods can be bundled into a single installer as a patch. Strike Fighters 2 has a huge potential for single player campaigns that other simulators don't have, it would look better with cooperative multiplayer missions.

Every individual will have different opinion about this... and it was discussed here for many occasions...leading to nothing. Because doors are still closed.

At some point, BMS and DCS lack some SF2 features.

Depends on which cockpit. For now, the community has been tasking themselves in creating many of the cockpits. So cockpits and models can be easily solved and this is not a BIG issue. New objects in-game is not a BIG issue.

your opinion. And again what is important or not will be hard to determine...For example - As for me, it would be important if the refuel mission is run from the seat of KC driver. Running a few hour mission as manager of the tanker or AWACS crew can be more challenging. Fighters are cool but at some point...boring.

Advertising isn't all it is cracked up to be either. HiTech Creations bought some expensive ads for Aces High on the history channel, which should have been the perfect audience at the time. No real impact with lots of money wasted. HiTech Creations also went the Steam route, no useful impact other than slightly splintering the community between those on the original company forums and those at Steam.

I wouldn't dare rename SF2 to lose the "stigma" of the "Strike Fighters" name unless some major content was added or radically improved. To be competitive with the arcade air combat games, civil flight sims, and DCS World, the terrain engine and graphics engine would need expensive and time consuming work. The crowdfunding wasn't an effort to improve the game nor to attract new players, it was a response to numerous requests from long time customers. It very effectively measure how many people care enough to follow Third Wire and seek a path forward for SF2 PC games.  What I don't know is what TK actually expected the results to be as opposed to what he asked people to contribute.

I got an email from Thirdwire this morning confirming that my donation will get me the Win 10 "patch" when it comes and also a key/link to the SF2 Complete edition. I didn't expect the latter so I'm happy with that even if I do pretty much have all the games and DLC - although spread across 2 email accounts.

Thank you for contributing to the Strike Fighters 2 Windows 10 update!

Sorry for the delay in sending this out, but getting the contributors list turned out to be slightly more complicated than expected, as many of you seem to have used different emails (and even names) for FundRazr account and PayPal account. We did the best we could to reconcile the differences manually, and we're sending this out to the address listed on your PayPal account (and not the FundRazr account). If you got this email on wrong address - you wanted to use the email you used on FundRazr or some other email address - please let us know so we can change it.

Also, some of you had previous purchases from email listed in your FundRazr account, they've all been moved to (and in some cases merged with) your email from PayPal account. Again, if this is not what you wanted, and you wanted to use the email used on FundRazr, please let us know.  If you had made previous purchases, please take a moment to log into your account on

and make sure everything is still there.


You should also be getting the usual automated email from our online store about "purchasing" SF2 Windows 10 update. The placeholder download doesn't do anything, so no need to actually download it or install it, its just there to confirm you'll get the update when it becomes available.

And as an additional "thank you", we're also sending out code to access "Strike Fighters 2 Complete Edition" to everyone who contributed.  Because we did not make the goal, the free update will probably only be available for this edition of the game (and updates to individual SF2 titles will be sold as separate installs).


We hope to get the rest of funding secured and start working on this update  by early next year, depending on how our other projects go. We'll keep you updated on the progress.


Thank you!

Really appreciate ThirdWire giving the SF2 complete to all donors.  After my Nihon Hitori campaign is packaged and posted here, I'm going to spend a lotta flight sim time (which isn't much per week) on it.

There was many words of criticism here about TK attitude... (the most deservedly :biggrin: ).

So now it's time to say a word of thank: indeed I' ve got the link for SF2_Complete and to date I even didn't had all parts (I was missing SF2I).

:good:
