I see it's ESA-protected and that makes sense because it's published by Sierra...

but

you can still download the VGA-version with the mission-editor at HOTU! What's the deal here? <meanwhile I'm downloading, because I never had that mission-editor...>

B) :bye:
This is a very good game, even though the graphics are
simple, it does amazing things you can change the point of
view,you can record your flights, you can fly all over,
exploring, you can experience changes in time of day, into
night, really great game, you can learn all the different missions,
do a campaign, attach planes, zephlins, straff trains,
do aerobatics, fight famous aces, even make yourself
invulnerable so that you can learn the art of flying without
getting shot down every time, it took a long time for me
to learn all the tricks and skills, and i still love this game,
it was released by Sierra for free some while ago. There is
an updated 3D version which uses the same scenes, and
basic graphics, but more 3D, And oh yes, I almost forgot
you can change the color of your plane even!

Fighitng the red baron is fun, he is really good.
And you can choose to have weather, and clouds or not.
The cities are in simple details, with only major monuments
and buildings but you can fly over London, Paris, etc, and
so forth. There is even a German Zeplin Base you can find
if you are good, but the zephlins never really land at it,
i tried waiting for them but they get close but never really
land there. ah well, there is a lot of fun things you can do
with this game and the historical progression of diffent types of
planes that became available as World War I progressed are
pretty well done.

enjoy :bye: :bye: :bye:

Sierra was bought by Vivendi, and Vivendi is an ESA member.

I got hooked on this game and me and a friend spent literally hour after hour playing it whilst absolutely wrecked. If you're reading this Paul Mason I was damn lucky not to get kicked out of uni thanks to you and this game!

It's an absolutely fantastic game full of replay value and once you're flying you soon forget about the primitive graphics and virtually non-existant sound. Still fun to play and with better variety and a better campaign than most modern flight sims. It's a shame this version isn't up for grabs but as someone else pointed out the more modern version is available.

I loved that the red baron occasionally challenges you to a duel, you don't have to take him up on the offer but those one on one battles to the death were absolutely fantastic and one of the most tense gaming experiences I've had.

If I remember correctly, some pc game magazine had a small snippet on an updated version of this game. They tore all the textures down and rebuilt the graphics engine from the ground up. It was supposed to be a great fan remake. I might have to dig through my mags to find it.

The thing this game had that I find missing from all other flight sims recently released, was the dynamic campaign mode. Such a simply thing really, allowing you to gain rank, die, or get captured, losing out on a portion of the war. It was a simple mechanic all told, but it felt all the more compelling for it. I know I had to hard reset my computer a few times when the ground was hurtling toward the cockpit just so I could save my ace from certain destruction. k:

Has anyone noticed that the "Review" link on the first post of this thread leads to the Faery Tale Adventure 2 review? I'd be hard-pressed to come up with a connection between those two titles!

PS:
a couple of tricks: to avoid enemy fire, just dive your plane. when your sight is just under the horizon, enemy bullets will not hit you. disengage at the lowest alt and fight.
to restart a mission (on the older version) just press ctrl alt canc as the very moment your plane crashes, you won't loose the game. have fun pilots!

I like RB1 (256 color) version more than the newest RB3D verion too.

RB1 (16 color) verion is very hard to dogfight. 317 kills!!! You are the Great! k:

Salute!

Thanx!
RB saga is very engaging; I remember with pleasure my 15 month's career on WON, the server that allowed to play RB2 in multyplayer. I met a lot of smart persons and damn good pilots, who often kicked my a$$... but I did it so, sometimes
returning to RB 1990, definitely a great GREAT choiche!
