I nearly spat my cornflakes out reading that..... he couldn't have got that one more wrong, even if he was called Wrong Wrongley and lived in Wrongland
God, you just had to bring that up....
Ever since DiD's EF2000, I wanted a high fidelity Typhoon. I was hoping soo much.....what a disappointment.
I don't know much of what's going on in the flight sim world as I checked out a long time ago. But I remember a Typhoon and I'm pretty sure it was the one you guys are talking about. That was the one chance of possibly pulling me back into current flight simming (I had already given up on a realistic F-117, F-22, F-35 or EF2000 sim from TK/Third Wire). I mean, I would have gone all the way with it, all new PC and HOTAS, TrackIR, the works. I would have even gone Steam if I had to (so far I haven't succumbed to software subscription or any online umbilical cord).
Assuming the atmosphere and environment (minus a full-blown DC) could have come close to EF2000.
I still have these pics (and a few others)...
