Solo Flight Second Edition

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have an ATR of the Second Edition of Flight Simulator. Atarimania's version is corrupted.

 

Thanks,

Allan

Deleted. I have wrongly read Solo Flight instead of Flight Simulator.

 

EDIT

I was not wrong! Solo Flight is in thread's title.

Here it is again.

So much for doing something quick. :( (Slaps hand on forehead.)

 

I meant to write Solo Flight like you figured out.

 

Thank you, Philsan. Very much appreciated.

Hi, the Atarimania image is an 'atx' file, therefore a VAPI image requiring a supporting emulator to play it. A cracked version would be useful though ;)

How does the second edition compare to the first?

The instruments panel is re-done. There is now a computer guide that tells you things about your flight. I'm not yet sure what else but I just started playing it.

Here is a cracked version of VAPI image, 100% working.

Thanks, FYI that image was identical to the one posted above

I think the image I've posted comes from Fandal's site! icon_smile.gif

I have the original boxed game and on the back is written: "Speech synthesis is also included on the Commodore 64 and Atari 8-bit version". But then in the instructor option chapter they write: "The instructor gives you assistance and directions with text messages, and (in the c-64 version only) actual speech."

 

I just checked the C-64 version and the speech synthesis is acually really nice and offers a lot of diversity. Except for the tower-voice, it sounds very similiar to the synthesizer used in the Atari version of Kennedy Approach. The speech could be easily done on the 8bit Atari too, but I guess the Microprose management decided to drop speech of the Atari version in order to support Atari 48kb users too.

 

How I hate that!! It was already 1985 and the game companies still produced games that did not use all the available 64kb :-((

 

grtx,

Also have a copy of planet miners on the way from same programmer. Wonder if he wrote nukewar as well.

 

Planet miners is like a stock market simulation except you are trying to mine the solar system so there is the added twist of time between planets etc.

I hate that too!

Many games have been ruined by the 16/48KB marketing limitation.
