  1. The Mighty Eighth by Microprose announced

    I still have this collection - the glory days..............
  2. “Engine 4 is on fire! And I have no rudder control! Let’s put this fire out! Someone head out to the back and see what’s wrong!” “I’m on it!”, you shout, running towards the rear gunner station while you scan the cables. “Damn”, you think “a hole in the fuselage and the cables were cut. That FW-190 did some real damage here”. The good news is: you can fix it. Roll up your sleeves and get to it. Quickly! Did you imagine all this? Well, you won’t just imagine it. You will LIVE it. We are honored to announce to you, our fans, that MicroProse is working on a brand new The Mighty Eight title for Virtual Reality. The Mighty Eighth will be a VR-first project (but also playable with no VR enabled) in which you will be able to play with 9 other friends (or AI crew) as you work together to survive the war and accomplish your missions. Drop those bombs on the right spot, guide your crew through long drawn out day, or the dark, moonless nights, keep your airplane in touch with the rest of the squadron and HQ as you monitor radios and communications. Defend your Flying Fortress by keeping those enemy fighters away from you and your squadron mates. Pilot or co-pilot this beast under a massive amount of stress – and enemy fire, but don’t drop out of formation or you’re a sitting duck. The new Mighty Eighth is not just a game. It’s an experience from a different time where young men grew faster than they should and saw things no man should see. And YOU will be put right in the middle of the action. But wait. There's more. The Mighty Eighth didn’t just use the B-17. They also used the B-24 Liberator! Shouldn’t we be able to fly that bomber as well, then? Well, yes. And you will. The B-24 Liberator will also be added, and you will be able to fly missions in both the legendary bombers, each recreated with meticulous attention to detail. https://www.microprose.com/games/the-mighty-eighth#
  3. 22 May 2020 Dear Fighter Pilots, Friends and Partners The Free for All event has now ended. We hope you have all found something new and interesting to discover. Please note that the DCS World Steam Edition Free for All Sale continues until the 27th of May. This week we launched an update to DCS World Open Beta. The update has been optimised to take advantage of the latest graphic drivers and processor performance as we work towards an efficient CPU load management system. With over 200 bug fixes and upgrades, this is one of our biggest updates. Most importantly, we are delighted to announce the release of DCS: Supercarrier into Early Access. Please take another look at Supercarrier: Quick Start and Supercarrier: Mission Generation and make sure you hit the ground running. Thank you for your passion and support. Yours sincerely, The Eagle Dynamics Team Open Beta DCS World 2.5.6 The new Open Beta encompasses a large number of updates to the environment. A number of Campaigns have also been revised to ensure that they are compatible and accessible. The F/A-18C Hornet and F-16C Viper have both received major updates. We have done what we can to include many of the community's requests, especially in regards to the Hornet’s litening pod. Our third-party partners have also been hard at work with updates to the M-2000 Mirage and the AV-8B Night Attack by RAZBAM. Notably, Heatblur Simulations have released substantial updates to the F-14B Tomcat and the ASJ37 Viggen. Read the Full Change log Magnitude 3 have also released a large update, read about it on their website:leathernecksimulations.com Supercarrier Development Report DCS: Supercarrier is the most detailed and realistic simulation of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier ever created. In total, the US Navy manufactured 10 Nimitz class ships. Our product will include all 5 vessels of the Theodore Roosevelt sub-class: CVN-71 Theodore Roosevelt, CVN-72 Abraham Lincoln, CVN-73 George Washington, CVN-74 John C Stennis, CVN-75 Harry S. Truman. We know that you have waited a long time for this complex module to deliver. The workload has been intense and we would like to thank all of those who put in the extra hours needed to meet this ultimate deadline, you know who you are. We are confident this powerful new module will inspire every one of us. This week marks the completion of the first set of features for DCS: Supercarrier. Read about the detailed list of features available in DCS: Supercarrier Early Access. F/A-18C AG Radar Development Report We had planned to release the A/G radar this week but due to technical reasons, this has been moved to 3rd of June. See development screenshots Supercarrier Early Access Download Now At Early Access launch, Case 1, Case 2, and Case 3 will be supported. After Early Access will we do additional work to include pattern re-entry after a wave off or bolter, and Automatic Carrier Landing (ACL) support. If you do not own the Supercarrier module, you will not be able to spawn on the deck to take off or catch an arresting wire to land. You would also not be able to take advantage of the new radio communications, the Ready Room, LSO, Station, and Air Boss Station. Benefit from the Early Access discount and save 20% on DCS: Supercarrier. Thank you all again for hanging in there with us. You make our dreams come true! Kind regards, The Eagle Dynamics Team
  4. Simming Area Now and Then

    Those dinky CRTs seemed more than adequate at the time - and that Thrustmaster Cougar would still look good with any modern setup.
  5. The way the guys on the deck are animated is most impressive.
  6. Just to clarify as I stated above Strike Fighters Gold was 2004 - I still have the Jewel Case & CD.
  7. Osprey Publishing Sale

    They are not doing free books any more but they are still doing a sale. https://ospreypublishing.com/
  8. Falcon 4 BMS 4.34 Update 4 released

    Never been done before however you can wait till 4.35 comes out I guess.
  9. That is not SF2. It looks like a version of the original Strike Fighters: Project 1 from 2002 - 2004 time period. (Actually SFG.exe would signify Strike Fighters Gold from 2004) That is why you have a totally different file structure and most recent mods (especially SF2) probably wont work with it because it is very old code. While I am here Strike Fighters Series 1 from 2002 Strike Fighters Project 1 Strike Fighters Gold Wings Over Vietnam Wings Over Europe Wings Over Israel (+ Expansion Pack) First Eagles Strike Fighters Series 2 from 2008 Strike Fighters 2 Strike Fighters 2 Vietnam Strike Fighters 2 Europe Strike Fighters 2 Israel Strike Fighters 2 North Atlantic Strike Fighters 2 Expansion Pack 1 Strike Fighters 2 Expansion Pack 2 First Eagles 2
  10. What Caliber Weapon Is Needed To Kill These Things?

    Brings back memories........I had to go and watch the what happened to FPS Russia video!!...third most popular You Tube channel at one point apparently.
  11. Colonel Tom Moore celebrates his 100th birthday

    One of the few good things to have happened since this COVID thing blew up.
  12. On behalf of the entire BMS development team, I am happy to announce that the latest iteration of the Billion Soft Falcon 4.0 total conversion modification - Benchmark Sims 4.34 U4 - is available for you to enjoy as of RIGHT NOW! BMS 4.34 U4 requires a legit installation of a Falcon 4.0 (all older and newer versions are accepted alike, i.e. Microprose, Hasbro, GOG, Steam, Retroism). The check is performed both at setup time and every time you start BMS. If no valid installation is found, BMS will exit with a corresponding error message. U4 is an incremental update on top of 4.34 base + U1 + U2 + U3, so you need to have the BMS 4.34 Full Installer package and Update 1 and Update 2 and Update 3 available on your PC. You can both update your existing 4.34 base + U1 + U2 + U3 installation as well as perform a fresh 4.34 base + U1 + U2 + U3 + U4 installation from scratch, as you like. See the installation instructions below for details. This mod may not be used for any commercial purposes. Any such use may constitute a violation of the intellectual property of Billion Soft (Hong Kong) Limited and the non-commercial Terms and Conditions under which Benchmark Sims make this mod available to you.
  13. 1080p is still really good - the only thing I can say with certainty is that 4K needs more resource to run - thus with that low end card I would be concerned you may be disappointed with the performance when running the game.
  14. F-35 woes continue

    Please note kiddy winks that My plane is better than your plane because opinion usually go the same way as religion and politics - and we neither get the pay or care about being tolerant moderators - therefore if you have nothing to present that is not based on something useful can you tone it down please.........thanks.
