fordac117 posted a topic in EF2000Gentlemen, First of all I would like to give thanks to all of the efforts to improve on one of the best combat flight simulators ever, IMHO! It is a remarkable achievement of all of the improvements made and a testimony to the dedication of those who felt the need to bring back this classic! My thanks and appreciation goes out to you. I haven't tried Strategic Commander yet but plan to but did find a copy of the old Revive program from years ago. I am in the process of relearning all that I have forgotten over the years but gleefully look forward to it. In the meantime, while going through the EF2000 strategy guide I came across an AAR that I printed off from 1997(!). It was posted to the old EF2000~gamers.org site. Below is the text of the email. Maybe some of you guys are familiar with the person that wrote it. I would love to read more AARs as I get back into this marvelous sim!
