So, how do we get Peter to invest in WOFF: BH&H II to bring the most comprehensive and historically accurate WWI flight simulator to the next level? heh.
Back in reality though. he has a seriously impressive collection of WWI aircraft and gear.

Nevermind, he plays WOFF at a whole different level. WWI Laser tag with real planes. LOL

I think you may be on to something there, Hellshade. And if memory serves, don't we have some members down in New Zealand? I feel like WOFF is one investment away from breaking through into something quite extraordinary. You just have to get this amazing flight sim in front of someone who can make that critical difference. Jackson comes to mind, as does Phil Spencer (all kidding aside, if MS could just green-light WOFF as a sanctioned, stand alone product, it would shift this conversation significantly).

There's something of an unfortunate story that goes along with that:

Unfortunate story


The older I get, the more I realize I don't need to be Han, Luke or Leia. I'm just happy to be rebel scum...

Ugh, I had forgotten about the mess that Gene DeMarco inflicted on TVAL... it's a horrible shame. I do hope the company restarts at some point, but as the article says, it doesn't look likely. What a horrible ending to such a remarkable project.

I know, when I win the lottery, I'll need someone to build me an SE5a...

Aside for his money, his involvement would be ruinous. Hollywood f&*#s up everything.

WOFF is always in my thoughts when playing scratch offs. LOL Maybe Old Brown Dog should aim a little more down to earth for a philanthropist. Kermit Weeks for instance https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kermit_Weeks He owns a kite or two. wink

@Hentzau - Kermit's not a half bad idea! Could publicize the game.
