Interesting news from Graphsim


IMG: GraphSim has been a bit quiet of late with no recent announcements. Can you please tell us what's up at GraphSim?

Morgan: Well, that's true we have been slower with releases this year simply because we haven't found any titles that we are interested in porting. We are, however, very busy working on the next release of F/A-18 Hornet.

IMG: What can you tell us about the new F/A-18 Hornet?

Morgan: Well, if all goes well, we think that is will be ready for release around December of this year. The name of the final product is still in the works but internally we call it Target Iraq. So that should give you some ideas of the mission scope of the game.

IMG: Sounds very timely. Will it use the same F/A-18 engine from the previous games? Any enhancements you can talk about?

Morgan: Basically it will depart from the last few versions in that it will have much nicer graphics, completely new cockpit environment, and a new user interface. Complete with all new missions.

IMG: How long have you been working on this new F/A-18 Hornet game?

Morgan: Pretty much all of this year and most of last year. Trey Smith, who was lead programmer on the previous F/A-18 games, is the lead programmer on the new F/A-18 Hornet game as well.

IMG: Will the new game support Mac OS 9? Mac OS X? Are you also planning a Windows version?

Morgan: It will be for Mac OS X for sure and maybe Mac OS 9. And yes, we're also doing a Windows version. A PS2 version, later.

couple of questions:
1.did you get rid of the threat warning lines on the hud? this is not realistic.
2. in the virtual view is all the gauges and most inportant the RWR going to be functional?
3. is the padlock going to be better like in janes f/a-18e? this going to have more commands to give to flight also awacs, jstar, tower etc....?
5.tell use why we should buy this simm is this going to be arcade like or mode the F/A-18C?

Thank You for your time,

Thanks for the link Buddmann. I'll definitely be looking out for this one. Despite it's shortcomings, I've always loved 'Hornet Korea'.
