Wow, thought I was bad, looking at that collection had made me realise how many I have got rid of in the past. I too owned most of them at one time or another. I also notice you have 2 of the same titles in some cases. Is that for the sake of being a collector?

The ones that he has two of are pc and Mac versions (ask me how I know \:\) ). My collection used to look like that but I stopped collecting some time ago.

Hello,
There has been times I thought of throwing the boxes out and just keep the CDs and manuals to save space. Id proly regrit it later if I have done so.

Some of the double ups are Mac ver as stated or collecting series like Longbow, Longbow Gold, Longbow 2 and LB Anthologie.

The collection stared in the early 80`s like my memebership here # 188 \:\)

The bottom right is a book collection of fltsim Strategy guides.

I enjoy visting http://www.migman.com on-line flight sime Museum. You can check out the free section.

Cheers !
Pretzel~

Dogzero, you haven't got the Binder edition of F4?! Heh, even I have that one, and I live in Romania!

:p

I'm not gonna read this topic anymore, or I'll burst into tears.

:D No I do not have the binder edition. But what I do have is 1 brand new Big boxed Falcon 4 still sealed for collection sake. I also have 1 brand new boxed sealed Flight of the Intruder (with Novel and maps etc), F19 Stealth Fighter and F117A (Amiga Editions) and one brand new Janes F/A18 still sealed in its box.

Just to add, I have just purchased a brand new Amiga A500 still sealed and in absolute mint (as new, as it has not even been started up) condition. Bought it from a guy on Ebay who just happened to mention that he had a brand new one during a game transaction. He also threw in a pristene Amiga F16 Combat Pilot all boxed and like new.

Sweet merciful god... You guys are serious collectors... \:D
In the '80s there were no "legal" games where I'm from; everything was copied as they weren't sold anywhere. The thing did not really changed much in the early '90s as well; but I'd love to have an original f-117 for PC... (By the way; I bought most of my copied games since then.)

Gentlemen, I stand in awe of your dedication and shelf space.

I've had most of these at one time or another, but the real world just keeps getting in the way, or rather the sim boxes get in the way of the real world.

The first flight sim I played was on a computer in school in the 1980's - it was an Apache sim, but I can't remember the name. After that it was F-19 on a friend's PC and loads of Microprose, Lucasarts and DI sims on my old Amiga before I got my own PC (since upgarded/replaced several times).

My collection now comprises:

Janes Fighters Anthology (I got rid of USNF, Marine Fighters, USNF97 and ATF)
Janes IAF
Janes F-15
Janes F/A-18
Janes USAF
Janes Longbow 2
IL2 & IL2 Forgotten Battles
Strike Fighters Gold
Flanker 2.0
LOMAC
F-22 ADF
F-14 Fleet Defender (the only Microprose sim I've got left - really sad)
CFS2
Falcon 4
EAW
F-16 Fighting Falcon
Hind
Plus an old CD with a lot of cracked versions of really old games including Facon 3.0 and the addons on that I haven't got time or tech skills to see if they work on my current system.

Thaks for the memories guys, time to start trawling Ebay methinks!


Allen

My system:
Packard Bell I-Xtreme 2600
P4 2.66ghz
512mb RAM
120gb hard drive
Geforce4

As a follow up on this:

I was not able to get F-16 Aggressor to run on XP with my 9800 Pro, however, it ran fine on XP with my GF4 ti4200.

Many of them are doubled or more,they are not on the Pics,interessting to see the differences(especially Pretzels Coll.)between US/UK Relaeses and German.Latest Incomings were "Birds of Prey" and the really rare here in Germany,(was not sold here)-> EF V.20 .

Here's my contribution to the sim hall of fame, my collection could probably get lost down the back of Pretzels sofa. Seem to be boxless on many of them. Anyone notice F-16 Aggressor in there? *hangs head in shame* sorry Dogzero I thought it was awful.

Ahh I spotted Aces of the Pacific... that one was great. I think at the time I played it 'Boo! Boo! Black Sheep' was aired here in germany.
I remember that I loved the menu music.
I didn't like Aces over Europe for some reason though. I think I thought the planes were too hard to fly compared to the F4U.
Oh the memories \:\) .

Puck and Pretzel... those are truly amazing collections. I wish I had taken care of mine as well. Maybe I should stop ripping the cartonage open with my teeth as soon as a new sim arrives \:D

I have recently been playing IAF (ISREALI AIR FORCE) on my retro pc. It was really quite good. My retro pc has been built to be able to play most of the old sims (including dos titles).

I have built it using win98se, msdos 6.2 and have an old sb16 card, geforce 2 and voodoo 2 card. Seems to work an absolute treat on the old stuff like USAF, TAW, EF200, TORNADO, LONGBOW 1 AND 2, and even Chuck Yeagers Air Combat. \:D
