LO-MAC Demo Next Week - Game Delayed?

A post to the Lock On: Modern Air Combat Forums from Eagle Dynamics' Carl C. Norman (thanks Brad Vaughan) has word that the demo for this jet combat game will be released next week, though it's warned that this is not carved in stone if anything pops up in the meantime. The post also describes how certain aspects of the demo that will be fixed in the final version of the game will not be addressed in the demo in order to get it out the door. Meanwhile, there are other posts in that forum that refer to the game being delayed until Winter 2003, which also is mentioned second-hand in a forum post (thanks Dave), though that forum is down at the moment, but this does not seem to be officially confirmed anywhere.

SubLogic Flight Simulator on the Apple II. Long before MS ganked it. Unless you count the vector-graphics Red Baron arcade game...

'Scuse me while I limp off to get my evening dose of Geritol.

Seriously, IL-2 is about as accessible as so-called "hard-core" sims get, although some don't consider it true hard-core since it's actually a survey sim rather than a study sim-- despite the title.

For true hard-core study sims, they simply don't get any better than the Realism Patched Falcon 4.0. But then I certainly wouldn't describe it as accessible, either. You've got to have your doctorate degree in Third-Party Patchology just get the damned thing running right. And then it takes hours and hours of dedicated practice flights to get to the point that you can successfully pull off a mission-- let alone a full campaign. It's definitely only for the dedicated wingnut.

For sheer fun factor, I far prefer a patched and third-party enhanced European Air War. There's still nothing come close to the feel of attacking a bomber formation the way it's done in that game. It's an absolute blast, and really tests your energy-management skills. Those Luftwaffe pilots who attacked Allied bomber formations late in the war had cojones so big, it required a forklift to get them into the cockpit.
