G' day all :) , I'm really tottally new to aero game's :o , As the last time I had aero game's was yonk's back, and that was 80 year's of aerial combat, and I think F-15 strike eagle, and some other one that was similiar, and that was on a Amiga 600! :eek: . Well now 2 system's latter, I have just bought Rowan's Battle of Britain for 7.95 Oz dollar's, and got a joystick called a " Self " Aerial Combat Fully Rotating Vibrating joystick. for 24.95 on special.(got button's everywhere, and a throttle on the front of the base, and don't let your girl friend borrow it! :p ). I am have a lot of fun with this game, I have to learn to really fly all over again, I' ve Only had about 20 minute's in a piper Cheereky(what ever spelling it 's 3am!) and 15 on a German Blanc glider real life. MAN have I had some crashe's, but at the moment I am starting to get the hang of it now, take off's good, landing's still a controlled CRASH!. I'm try to live the B of B by the actual date now, I've hit and knocked down plenty of bomber's now(not wasteing amo, getting in REAL close), but almost ever time I dogfight a fighter, I end up stalling and spinning off!(and not recovering in time too!), done a few high speed stall's as well! And yes the Carby Spit's and Hurra's are a REAL pain, CONK CONK, it must have been very frustrating for the lad's during the war. I have not tried as yet but can you do the Bridge's near london :confused: Can any of you gamer's outthere suggest any more cheap game's for me to start out with, mostly WW1 and 2 if possible ;) . And who out there has been into to this Rowan's B of B game? :confused: I must now Blooody well crash, I'm melting fast, " Gut Nacht " all far and wide. Ciao ;)

You could try IL-2 forgotten battles or Pacific Fighters, they don't cost very mutch at the moment and the graphics and gameplay are great! Real value for money!!

OR - if you REALLY want to go nuts - try Aces High II - online combat flying at it's wildest. You haven't lived until you duke it out in a Hurri I against an A6M5 at wavetop level..... Then again, blast that boasting peacock in the Lala (La-9) with your Spit 1, and watch him cry foul! Or, if you're like me, do a full power dive from 20K, .... only to realize that you've compressed and become a beautiful lawn dart... :)

Try doing a 450mph dive in a Flying Fortress in Microprose's "B-17". The wings come off giving you not a lot of control either !!!

Still Luv in it! Still having a BALL with this B of B game! :D Got no clue with flying the Ju87 but, NOT bombed a thing! and have been bounced a plenty! :p Now I go quick shot's, B of B, Sep 15th Plenty of target's, the 109's turn for home, and you tangle with 110's, and hit the bomber's. I find the hurra's a top aircraft skipping through the bomber's, stand's on it's wing tip's, now I go Unlimited Ammo, But air Collision's ON! :cool: Man!!!!!!!!! have I had and seen some awesome pile up's, with me in it most time's :eek: . 110's seemed to have a habit of running right in to me, from behind, must be roaring in to kill me, and when I pull up hard to slow a bit to hit a bomber, BANG, the Kraut dude behind over shoot's real bad, and run's in to me, seen one 110 go REAL close over me, to dodge, and went smack in to the bottom of the bomber I was attacking BANG the both over em :cool: , saved me the trouble :p Got the hang now and have had plenty multy bomber kill's, managed on a good mission to average about 300 to 350 bullit's per kill, but let em go REAL close ;) . Bagged about only two 110's in actual combat, and that was hard, NO 109's at all, but have nicked a few smoker's but they got away, (Blooody grav carb :rolleyes: ). Killed a few stupid sitter 110's, just cruzing along like there was no War on, woke the front bunch enough to gun the donk, and head back across the Chunnel to frog land, I followed behind, then even had a go while they were landing, and got one to crash land!! But Flak blew me up, and out of the sky in bit's over the Kraut Airfield, No bail out, oh well all's fair in love and war, what goe's around :D Ciao all :)
