Will the original Falcon 4.0 manual be of use to BMS?

Recommended Posts

SO I am re-buying some of the old big box PC games of the 90s and Falcon 4.0 is on that list but I wondered if the manual would still be relevant to BMS?

I.e. are the default key binds the same and other stuff like that?

BMS comes with its own massive set of pdf documents.

 

Oh I know that, but IMO a physical book on your lap/desk is easier to look through than a PDF on a screen somewhere.

Its a shame as I remember everyone going on about how good that manual was.

For 1998 it was good...............but today it is rubbish compared to what you get now.

Best thing to do is get a tablet because it is many times easier to find things quickly with a search function compared to a book.

You can also pause and alt tab to it open on your PC if you must.

No and yes and depends (I wouldn't bother)

The Eagle Dynamics videos might be of use for some of the procedures cant say about other videos you may be looking at.

However there are different systems in each.....and each game environment is very different. DCS only does a USAF Block 50...............BMS on the other hand does a ton of different variants................for example has a different Data Link, data cartridge, an AG radar, different weapons (MITL etc), LANTIRN to name a few things...........the DCS one also is missing a lot of things in a lot of areas currently.
