That would be a good idea. I could use a digital camera to take a picture of the television.

I've still got a ZX81, The Power Supply soldered into the ZX81 because the 3.5mm Jack used to glictch and cut power.

But unfortunatly I don't have a 16kb Memory Pack. (Pack was the right word) Is Still have the blue tack that used to hold the mempack secure (If anyone remembers doing that) why? It used to move and crash if you pressed to hard on the Keyboard /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

i used to have an Acorn Electron, when most other people had a zx81

My first flight sim was "747 Flight Simulator" and was effectively a bunch of white lines, circles and numbers on a black background.

My favourite flight sim around that time - i think it was on electron (perhaps early pc) was "Spitfire 40" The enemy planes were filled in! (in purple? i think) and there was amazing use of block green and block blue for sky and ground. It came out for the 40th anniversary of BoB( for some reason though 1980 seems too long ago for this to be right - perhaps it was 45th anniversay and they just called it '40) - im sure it came out on many different platforms

used to love that game

Any one else remember this game?

Here's a couple of pictures of some very old simulators. I'm not sure what the first one is but the second pic is definitely one of the first M$ Flight Simulator's

The city in background is Chicago and the white blobs are clouds also if you have a close look you can see Miegs Field airport and the Sears Tower.

In the HUD in the concorde shot it says "beers/Hr". What's up with that?

21? Get me off that plane!

The interesting thing to notice about how they describe the 'Pilot' Thats the first one. it clearly states

"THIS IS NOT A GAME!" /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Remember it? I've got it!!

Dambusters, Fighter Pilot, Delta wing, Gunship, some other apache sim made by the Fighter Pilot crowd.

I have (in the cupboard) the spectrum plus (?), retrieved so Mrs foxhound could play Jet Set Willy....

When we had an Atari Dad bought a Tornado sim that was for its day hugely complex, wire frame graphics and the Falcon 4 manual of its day...

My cousin had that Acorn sim.... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

In the Foxhound's Kennel is...

Duron 1.2 Ghz, Win XP, 512MB PC133, , Ti4800SE,SB 5.1, Dx9.0a and a small fowl in a fruit tree of indeterminate origin.

What does the beers/hr=021.6 mean in the concorde shot?

I recognize a few of these from my days learning to fly. . .just ask my passengers. . .


The area that says beer/hour is normally occupied by frames/sec

How it was changed I dont know

I sure like my FB and all but back in my Spectrum plus 2 days I didn't have any flight sims.
I did enjoy my strip pokers very much though./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
