Seems to become a standard for niche PC games lately (DCS now, and I guess you could say ArmA2 too), but if that means those game are actually getting released, then I'm all for it.

Thats your choice Richardg, but I firmly believe that our niche market needs to be supported 110% and if buying an open beta first then a second and third version helps maintain the developers we have, so be it .

Not everybody has to chip in and buy the BETA version -- some will, some won't. Doesn't make you a bad person if you prefer to wait. But enough will, I suspect, that it will make a difference for Dante and TW and his new partners in terms of generating some operating capital for the project. This is just the way this business is going to have to work. Dante did a hell of a job getting it this far.


USN/USMC -- when it positively, absolutely has to be blown up overnight.

I've been following Jet Thunder for a long time and I'm looking forward to having a realistic harrier sim.

However, this screenshot looks pretty gamey http://www.aerosoft.com/forum_screens/jetthunder/010.jpg
Notice that there is an extra item (the >>>) on the hud plus a target marker outside the hud. So the question is WTF are these? Is this some sort of a ....game? smile I don't want to fly a plane in which there is a "turn here to find the next enemy"-helper. That is too arcade. Hopefully this is only for the noob-mode...

Dante has mentioned these in earlier updates, they are optional depending on the settings the user chooses (similar to a lot of other sims out there) so I think you'll be happy with the result.

Fantastic news! So they found a Publisher finaly.
So what features are in the first release? Full clickable cockpit, dynamic campaign? Focused on one aircraft in first release let me hope.

Agreed.
If we all wait for the box it will never come.

What a fantastic surprise!! Call me a Negative Nancy, but that's the last thing I expected.

I recently pre-purchased the digital download to DCS:A-10C, and I'll definitely do the same for Jet Thunder when it's available.

Q4-2010 is shaping up to be an unbelievable year-end!! santa

20 Euros? Seems cheap? Do we have to buy then next releases too at similar sort of costs or are we buying the entire thing for the 20?

I think its not so much a Beta (like A-10C) as a phased release, so each module will probably cost about the same.
Or maybe half-as much again Keith yep
The RAF Harriers only flew ground attack (see Jerry Pook's book RAF-Harrier-Ground-Attack-Falklands )
But could have assisted the Navy Sea Harriers on CAP perhaps, even though they have no radar.

Wonder if a mission editor will be included?...this was mentioned a long time ago...hope its in the 1st module.

Cheers,
Keith
