My History of Flight Simming This post was originally meant to be a reply to this thread, but became extensive enough that I felt it warranted its own blog entry.

So for those who are interested, here are the high points of my history of flight simming, starting in grade school with my Atari 800.

I got the bug early on with Sid Meier's original...

Release the Prowlers! After a lot of hard work and constraints on my free time, I have finally released the EA-6B Prowler Superpack for the Strike Fighters 2 series.  The EA-6B superpack includes six prowler variants, from the original EA-6B that flew in the late Vietnam War all the way to the ICAP III model, which is the most current variant.

Wow, it's great to be (virtually) flying again!

Hawkx, Nephilim, and I flew a couple of missions in Total Air War 2.0 last night, one of which had me chasing down a train. I know we have a lot of IL-2 flyers on this board, so let me just say this: bagging a train in an F-22 is just as fun as going gunzo or rockets from your P-47 (though a bit...


The Trials and Tribulations of Replacing a Motherboard (or "How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love my GTX460")
