Just wondering if any of you VOGON'ers have tried this old (1990) flight sim, and what are your thoughts?
It's probably my favorite vintage flight sim...and, it runs on practically everything, from a 286/8mhz up to a Pentium 133.
Optimally, a 12mhz or faster processor will be smoothest -- and if you try it on a Pentium 133, you will need to press the "T" (time compression) key in order to take off the runway. I learned this last trick a few years ago (through experimentation), and it's necessary when running the game on a Pentium or else you'll remain grounded instead of taking off...plowing through the grassy fields around the airport!
There's an easy-to-download demo of the game available on the internet, and here if you want to try it: ftp://ftp.oldskool.org/pub/tvdog/tandy1000/games/su25.zip
