  1. I never had the Graphsim F/A-18, just the Janes one. I wonder what the iphone version of it is like though. Seems that with a bluetooth keyboard/mouse/jostick and a HDMI connection to a TV, the experience may be better than a top of the range mid 1990s PC.
  2. That seemed to be the case for F14 Fleet Defender as well....
  3. This Month in the Korean War: April 1950-1953

    Just noticed this! Thanks for doing this (and the 'Nam one)
  4. Hmmn, they seem to be scraping the barrel a bit with C&W songs these days. I'm on a symphonic metal binge today...and a song about a voyage of someone as difficult to pronounce as Krycztij...
  5. source code?

    Great summary! Having the source code with 'no strings attached' would be good for reference purposes though.
  6. Back from China

    Welcome back indeed! I doubt it's an 'exotic virus' though. Probably just E.Coli or amoebic dysentry caused by eating food contaminated by fecal matter.
  7. Weekend music thread

    Really! Well, I'm sure Donald will sort that out.
  8. Weekend music thread

    I think I smell burning...
  9. Weekend music thread

    Great video, Stans. The images blocked out the sound of Duran Duran nicely. ..and also some good music there from the 70s Donster. It was the age before video, so any depravity had to be hidden in the lyrics.
  10. Weekend music thread

    Indeed they do....
  11. TAW terrain format

    Thanks! That file is a bit weird in that it looks like LOD2 has been swapped with LOD1 for some reason, which screwed up my parsing script.
  12. Weekend music thread

    Yay, a music thread! Here's some zed zed top, as they're known as around here:
  13. TAW terrain format

    DKD, In a post earlier in this thread: http://community.combatsim.com/topic/25920-taw-terrain-format/?do=findComment&comment=5140926 ...you mention sabot.3 Do you know if this is actually used in the game, as the offsets to the LODs appear to be swapped.
  14. TAW Moving Map Format

    I used TFXplorer to 'fly' to the corners, to see if there was anything there...but alas, no.
  15. testing other planes

    Thank you! I vaguely remember there was a way to select other planes. I'm not surprised they are very limited in capability though. If the source code exists, I would say that getting access to it would require some legal framework that would severely limit what we could do with it. Things might be different if the code was already out there on the internet, as is it for 'Mig Alley' and 'Falcon 4'. You need to look at Krycztij's TFXplorer. The link here is to an older version, but it gives an idea of how far we've come in reverse engineering TAW...even without the source code.: http://community.combatsim.com/topic/31051-tfxplorer/?page=2#comment-5161105 ...also some good background info here: http://taw.wikia.com/wiki/TAW_Wiki
