Nope, but that's very close. The game was Microprose's answer to Red Baron, what is it?

Ah, Knights of the Sky. I have that. Very speed-sensitive game. Needs a slow 386 to run well. If I recall, it also has manual-based lookup copy protection. 😠 The graphics aren't as nice as Red Baron, either. How would you compare them, Kreshna?

Wait...

First, the graphics. Well there's no accounting for taste, but I like Knights of the Sky's vivid, vibrant colors much better than Red Baron's brownish hue.

Knights of the Sky vibrant colors.

I also love Knights of the Sky crowded sky compared to Red Baron's empty sky. When playing Knights of the Sky you can sometimes see and hear your comrades dogfighting against enemy fighters. I also like the Railroad Tycoon-esque in-game news.

In-game news.

So yes, Sierra/Dynamix's Red Baron may win in realism department, but when it goes to excitement and immersion, I like Microprose's Knights of the Sky better.

Never thought this thread would be that long, but now, for something different.....

Friday: City-wide garage sale thing and fireworks
Saturday: might mow lawns or something, IDK.
Sunday: laundry day

Reason for the lawn mowing is because I'm about to lose my job by mid-July...

Oh, man, that's a bummer. Hate that you're pushed to it like that.

I finally have all my parts in for my socket 775/windows 98 build. I am going to be overclocking and benchmarking the memory and CPU probably all weekend. This board supports both DDR2 and DDR, so I am really curious to see which will perform the best when everything is fine tuned.

I'll also probably take the kids out someplace. I am thinking a trip to the river would be good for all of us. The weather has finally turned where I am at. Been uncharacteristically raining late into spring this year.

My cousin passed away last Tuesday. She was still young, about the same age as me, but she was suffering from diabetes, and it led to further complications. Suffice to say that her mother, my aunt, didn't take it well, so this Saturday we took her out in an attempt to alleviate her grief. Well, our grief too. Anyway, sitting next to her is my other cousin.

Not a full family reunion, but grief divided is made lighter.

As for myself, I got a very hard wake-up call last week: I was diagnosed with high blood pressure due to overindulgence. I guess it's time to stay away from my favorite high-cholesterol dishes, and start a healthy lifestyle. Meaning no more beef intestines, no more tripe, no more ox brain in curry, no more mutton.
