    Thats an actual demo? It looks real! Except the trees that keep getting drawn in on the ground, of course.. but the graphics are schveeet

    Flight sims aren't really my bag, to be honest.. I enjoyed multiplayer Xwing vs Tie, and serial connection Descent, but other than that.. the realism stuff doesn't really grab me. Maybe when I shy away from counterstrike a little I'll give it a go, but not yet :>

    Damn good movie that

    those P-47's are brilliant in the right situation HUGE amounts of firepower and ammo aswell as being great for hitting the deck and running as hat found out when he tried to chase me in his 109

    I liked the movie.... think I've actually played that score tho - it's all once piece, but they've chopped out the imperial march from Star Was at the beginning.... That movie also convinced my service manageer at work to buy a stick and the game hehe. From the first shot of the Hurri (MkIIc i think ) I though tit was real footage, then i recognised some bits and it looked like the game, but if you've never seen the game it'd probably look dead real... some damn nice flying there too

    What's the minimum real spec for playable game? say 800 x 600 medium details etc? I know someone after this kind of thing but he has a P3 866 (but a graphics card upgrade is doable.)

    I fancy this myself anyway as well

    I can't DL the movie as I'm on 56K (not LOLing)

    CHeers,

    MM

    With a good gfx card he might be able to run FB at low settings, but he might just be better off getting the original

    Didn't think much of it I'm afraid (the game or the video)
    Just not for me - which is strange, as I'm a huge fan of past and present military and non military planes :s
    I think the game was just too slow for my liking
