Hello people, I am new to this forum. I just turned to Linux a couple of years ago, and missed some Windows functions. But that didn't stopped me from still using Linux. I like it a lot, but I can't play much. I can't play Third Wire productions, I can't play IL-2, I can't play X-plane, etc. So I decided to think about virtualization, and tried to install an old game from an old friend that I had saved in a vault, and try to install it through its CD to VirtualBox with Windows 98. I could do it, but the problem with this is that this Flight Sim is hard to deal with, because of the keyboard controls (I don't own a joystick because I sold it). Does anyone know where to find the keyboard control's map? The CD was scratched, so I picked it from here https://www.old-games.com/download/4239/f-a-18-korea This is how the game looks like inside the VirtualBox: I don't care if it is old, I like it. But I can't fly! I only can disable the breaks, accelerate, deal with the camera and cockpit view, and crash to the border of the airport. 😅 I hope this post is useful in some manner, thanks!
I have finally been able to purchase a decent more recent model PC. I have MS CFS2 & SFP1 running great on it. With all the hard-drive space I have created many installs with specific planes loaded in each install so the random mission generator button will load appropriate planes. With MS CFS2 I like that you can define groups of enemy planes to chose from, but it messes up if you dump all your planes in one install. Strike Fighters 1 doesn't seem to restrict appropriate planes to showing up when flying over a terrain even if you define friendly and enemy planes in that terrain's 'nations' file. What I would like to do is upgrade to a more recent combat flight sim(s). I say sims because Id be surprised to find a game i liked for both WWII props AND jet (missile) combat. Yes...I'd like some improvement in graphics, but I like the realism (flight mode;s) to be realistic as possible. I do realize the 'air' file or 'data' file creater or modifiers have a huge impact on flight model realism. For example, I can only remember losing a F-4 to an uncontrolable spin once and that was a stock plane not a mod; while, my MiG-29 will spin if you pull to many Gs at a low airspeed (to much AOA) and its a mod add-on! Anyway, looking at pics online it appears that folks are really doing a good job on aircraft for more recent sims...and terrains. Can anyone give me some input on what would be a good combat sim buy(s)? My budget is limitted and I can not buy everything out there to see if i like it like back in the day when i had less responsibility. Oh, I do think i want to get MS FSX to get modern graphics. There's a payware F-4J/S Phantom available that I think I want. However, the VC and skin of my F-4s in Strike Fightes 1 is pretty good really. I would imagine there's probably some pretty good free mod planes for a more recent combat simZ. I'm not THAT picky...I've been living with sims that came out practically in the last millinium for Jeez sake. Input please...and thanks!!
