Maybe something from the CFS3 engine?

Re: Name that sim! - 04/02/19 08:40 PM

I was gonna say Jane's Attack Squadron until pic#2. That looks like CFS3.

Re: Name that sim! - 04/02/19 08:53 PM

You got #1 Vince, Janes Attack Squadron it is - sorry, should have made clear each pic is (possibly) not from the same sim as others...!

# 2 is still up fro grabs, tho.

Feel free people to post your own visual posers - doesn't have to be difficult, it's as much a trip down memory lane as anything else!

CFS2 is the sim - it's the Mig -v- Sabre add-on, a reminder of the days when these extras that came in a box of their own could add a completely different planeset, theatre or even war, to the original sim.

GT:OS will do - the Chieftain is from the 'Prophet' DLC but plonked onto either a stock or other DLC map to get as near as I could to NATO -v- WARPAC.

Back in the air again with # 15; many sims have been so modded as to leave few clues to the original product (especially from above the clouds) though that could be a clue in itself...

Re: Name that sim! - 04/10/19 09:18 PM

Yes # 16 is First Eagles 2.

How about #17? Guessing the sim would be too easy, so we're after the LOCATION as well. The airline is a clue. The autogen buildings are generic but the terrain is photorealistic - I was there in February, and incidentally picked up a copy of issue 5 of 'Aces - les As de l'Histoire de l'Aviation Mondiale' at the hobby shop I always patronise on my visits (the language of the publication is NOT a clue, but the presence of the hobby shop might be, to some).

The sim is FSX, with IIRC freeware photorealistic terrain textures. As for the location, here's a clue in the form of a ground-level pic of the real location I took in May 2017, looking in a similar direction, taken from the castle on the circular hummock visible towards the bottom right of the screenshot.

Posted By: 33lima

Re: Name that sim! - 04/28/19 11:22 PM

F-16 Agressor it is, probably not a lot of people had it, as it didn't have a very mainstream setting, unlike Falcon 4 - IIRC, it had a strange backstory about being a mercenary F-16 pilot in Africa. Not a jetsim player myself, so this will have been a bargain bin purchase, in the days game shops had such things.

Now, here's a tricky one for you. Likely, you'll either remember it instantly, or not have a clue.

Re: Name that sim! - 05/03/19 05:40 AM

That is all to familiar 33lima. I spent 100s of hours in that Mig29 trying to master it. I got really good, but after years of flying in a Squadron, Fulcrum Sqaud, I found out that people all throughout that Sim world were cheating and altering the FMs to enable them to beat others. Even people that I flew with in Fulcrum Sqaud were cheating. I always wondered why I could never quite compete at the levels that other were, even in my own Squad. I was severely pissed when I finally found out, as most of us moved on to IL2 and the Hyperlobby Community. Once I found rampant cheating in IL2 a couple of years later, I was pretty much finished with online flight sims. Still lots of good memories from when I ignorantly tried so hard to compete on top tier levels in this SIm. Those pics I shared, Andy started Fulcrum Sqaud and Billy & I join in the first year and actually met in real life as you now know. Ah, the good old days. Back OT, I won't answer this one so as to see if any others remember. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. winkngrin

Re: Name that sim! - 05/08/19 07:30 PM

Warbirds 3 is close enough. It's History Channel Battle of Britain, which is Warbirds 3 based and IIRC when you apply one of the mega updates, gives you the Warbirds content, too. I quite liked it - the terrain textures were a bit low-res if effective and presumably better for MP performance, and the aircraft were quite good, as seen in the Spit. The missions were not bad, too, including one manning an Oerlikon on a destroyer with a Channel convoy under air attack.


And the next one...need the product identified, not merely the name of the aircraft...

F/A-18E Super Hornet is my guess.

Now this isn't a sim I played back in the day but one I bought retroactively several years ago from GOG.com. Unfortunately it never worked right and had all kinds of problems. However, this picture just sent me to GOG where apparently a user has found a fix(not sure if it works myself) and I discovered that the game was removed by GOG until they can fix it. There's a blue text where GOG explains that it recognizes it never worked right so therefore does not meet their "GOG" standards so they've taken the game down until they can fix it. I hope GOG always maintains this philosophy and integrity with their older game releases. I really want to play the original Rainbow 6 again but it has problems to I have read and there's probably no way my original CD would work at all. I hope they do the same for that game so maybe I can finally re-purchase it through GOG and have it working. Sorry for the semi off topic.

Posted By: Chucky

Re: Name that sim! - 05/10/19 08:45 AM

I can't honestly remember Coot. It has to be over 20 years ago. Perhaps my very vague memories of it suggest it wasn't.

Taking into account the amount of hours played I would say that the original M1 Tank Platoon was my favourite game. I first played it on my Atari ST and later on the PC.

All I've ever wanted is a modern M1 TP but alas it's not to be. Having said that I'd always wanted a re-make of Carrier Command and we got one.The problem was that despite the advances in graphics and sound it wasn't very good.
Posted By: 33lima

Re: Name that sim! - 05/10/19 06:15 PM

I, too recall very little of playing Spearhead (which indeed this is). The pic is from the Tanksim.com review. All I remember was that it seemed to be a one-tank show, compared to AF2 and AF3 even, let alone the delights of M1TP2 or Steel Beasts (original, the current one is too pricey for my tastes).

Staying with ground-based stuff, how about this one? Of all the sims featured so far, this is one I never actually owned or played.

No takers - so this one can now be revealed to be Rommel's Revenge, a tanksim player on a Sinclair Spectrum or ZX81 (can't recall, it was my brother's, apart from Pong the only other game I recall on that was a sort of text only version of Dungeons and Dragons with statements like 'There is a dwarf here', typing 'hit dwarf' in response (and most other responses, until you typed the right one) getting the response 'Nothing happens.'

At least Rommel's Revenge was fun. The circle at top was a radar which picked up tank enemies, which fired pixels at you with what looked like a decent ballistic trajectory. Graphics all wire frame of course. Simmers today don't know they are born smile I always remember this screen - when you got KO'ed, your saw these cracks and you got this message. We didn't worry overmuch about damage models in them thar days.

Thanks Chucky and yes you're right, Trooper, H&D2 it is. Never liked it as much as H&D Deluxe despite the better graphics. It didn't have the original's ability to roll, and more of the missions seemed just plain awkward, like the early one raiding the Axis desert airfield - they just threw more and tougher troops at you, Space Invaders style, including at least one Panzer III which you had to find the anachronistic Panzerfaust to knock out.

You may not believe me but on the Soldner screenshot, not only is that what came to mind, I almost posted "Hey, It probably isn't it but it reminded me of something. Did anyone here play Soldner Secret Wars"? smile

OFP was definately better but I remember the day I bought Soldner. I remember it took forever to install and it was pretty janky if memory serves. At the time though I really loved the feel and control of parachuting and I loved the stance and animation of your soldier when wielding a knife. In fact its the kind of pose that I have always wanted to see in a special forces soldier type of game. I've always wanted to see a game have your guy hold the knife upside down and really look like an old school spec ops guy. I wish more games animated it that way. I love the hand to hand combat movements seen in movies like Remo Williams and Under Siege.

I had been involved with gaining the rights for a small team of enthusiasts to continue development of the original Panzer Elite, and that led to an invitation by G5 for me to give them some input on this one. G5 ran out of development time and money, so they never really finished implementing all the things we (Alpha Testers) had suggested would make this a great sim. I moved on from tanks to working on enhancing CFS3, but my friend Aldo is still plugging away at Panzer Elite.

Yeah,I'd agree with you MajorMagee on your answer. I bought that game and was quite disappointed with how unfinished it was. It had great potential.

There was a (paid for) mod available for it done by a guy on the tanksim forum,I think his name was Zeewolf. I dabbled with that for a while but in the end I think I donated the game to someone here on SimHQ.

Yes it's T-34 -v- Tiger again. Did the crew drills better than Steel Fury, which seemed oriented to two-man turret drills. It's a pity that platoon command & control was non-existent and SP content so limited.

How about this one?

Re: Name that sim! - 06/16/19 08:38 PM

It's BoB II! Not so easy to tell when the sky isn't darkened with large formations or the ground isn't in view.

Speaking of ground, how about this one?

Not a pic but flight sim text, and an easy one I think.

I saw it just now when the incredible Semmern's "Sea Fury" thread had me thinking about the Norwegian fjord glider video (thought it might also be Semmern but it wasn't). Someone quoted this on that thread...

"INCURSION BY HOSTILES AT 310 DEGREES 90 NM ANGELS 10 CAN YOU INTERCEPT"

LOL.

No idea on the train sim I'm afraid. I guess the station might be a big clue.

That is EF2000 (Circa 1995), I played that game almost every day that year.

Re: Name that sim! - 06/18/19 10:17 PM

Never had EF2000, Rage's Eurofighter Typhoon being the only sim of that aircraft I've ever had.

The train sim is Trainz 2009, the route 'Along UTA lines' which is set in the 1960s, and the train an NIR 80 Class DEMU, which isn't.

Not my screenshot, the next one, but back in the air again, I have had this one...I think...

Re: Name that sim! - 06/19/19 06:52 PM

Yes it's Novalogic's F-16 Multi-role Fighter.

Going rather lower and slower, how about this sim?

That's the one! Not my screeenie as I have it but don't think I ever even loaded it. I think Gunship! was the only helo sim I had, that I ever actually tried.

And the next one...

Combat Mission Beyond Overlord.
Posted By: 33lima

Re: Name that sim! - 06/21/19 08:20 PM

Yes, it's CM:BO. Like most PC wargames, I never liked it much, because it simulated a wargame rather than war ie micromanagement, moving individual 'pieces' around rather than giving orders to AI commanders at the level below who would then use AI SOPs to execute them. A sort of PC way of doing what the ground-breaking Wargames Research Group revised 1925-50 rules did, latter applied to their Cold War set. So far, of the PC wargames I've tried, only GT:OS does a decent job of that.

And the next one...

Re: Name that sim! - 06/21/19 09:46 PM

Yes it's IL-2 '46, with DBW I think. Still prefer that mod, as last time I checked, it's compatible with many more campaigns.

Back to a life on the ocean wave, how about this one? I'll even throw in a pic I took of one of the real things, for free! Altogether now, 'We sail the ocean blue, and our saucy ship's a beauty...'

AOS II.

I would like to get this to work again, but haven't had any joy.

Re: Name that sim! - 06/22/19 05:42 PM

I have Privateer's Bounty I picked up in a budget section at Target years ago. Does anyone know if it works on modern PC. I'm also pecking away at another age of sail type of game that maybe I can share some pictures of.

Re: Name that sim! - 06/22/19 08:18 PM

Yes mateys, AOS 2 she be. Very nice in-game musical score, good range of historical battles (not just small skirmishes), good command interface and decent visuals, though I'd have liked to be able to get the viewpoint down to near the sea surface. Pretty well my idea of exactly what a Napoleonic era naval combat sim should be. Last time I tried to get her working, in Vista with an Nvidia card, I got horrible banding in the skies and possibly seas as well, tho it did run. Haven't tried in Win 7 or 10 yet but would like to play this again.

Here's one for those without the virtual violent tendencies...

Hmmm perhaps Flight Unlimited II then?
Posted By: 33lima

Re: Name that sim! - 07/03/19 10:53 AM

Yes, Flight Unlimited II it is! Was never much into civvy flight sims but this one I really liked, including the tower thanking you but saying they've already got somebody who cuts the grass, if you strayed off a taxi-way.

Back to the gratuitous violence, how about this one?
