I don't remember the version of the X-plane I started with. It seems to be the 6 or 7 Х-plane.
I Mistakenly gave the version of X-Plane that I first had.
I had got some previous versions but that was back when I was duel-booting so I could get that thing to run on a windows box of course…
I remember that I had a deep yearning and I used to regret that X-Plane did not work except on a Microsoft or Macintosh machine.
And then one day in a brand of very high class and high priced things in a grocery store that offered things like that I saw a little box full of CDs and it said on the front in red letters this works in Linux….. or something like that!
The first version I bought for Linux was X-Plane 7.
That was the first version of it that I bought for one simple reason and that was it was the first version of the X-Plane that supported Linux.
I recall having to order all sorts of parts. Things that were supported and could thrive in the Linux world.
One thing I remember vividly was ordering and then installing a NVidea card priced right for me.
I think that was before the conquering of the world by the web…
Yeah for me too it was Targetware. Same for Philip (Dervell) I guess.
Take care Vasco.
I'm somewhat sad about Targetware. It was such a promising sim.
Are there any modern multiplayer combat sims that are comparable? Maybe newer incarnations of Il-2? (back then, in comparison to TW flight models felt scripted)
Those fixed gunsights were a downer, but I really loved the flight model. You could really take advantage of air flow around each wing.
It was all about the pilot not the plane. A good pilot could manipulate P-39 to outturn Zero.
