Graphic Language warningIf you fancy upgrading your graphics card before Xmas check out these : 3DFX Voodoo
- 3dfx Voodoo3 3000 AGP 2D/3D Graphics Accelerator
- 3dfx Voodoo3 3000 PCI 2D/3D Graphics Accelerator
- 3dfx Voodoo5 5500 AGP 2D/3D Graphics Accelerator
- 3dfx Voodoo5 5500 PCI 2D/3D Graphics Accelerator
I don't think you can go past 3Dfx cards for compatability. My old Creative 3D Blaster Banshee still serves me well.
Mech my Day punk!
To mis-quote the great Clint Eastwood from "Dirty Harry"
PC and I spent an enjoyable day playing MechWarrior 4: Vengeance on 16 networked PC's courtesy of Microsoft.
The graphics were awesome and the game wasn't running on a ninja machine either! Despite his professed ' lack of time to play games ' I have been unable to wrest the software from PC's Windows 2000 system.

I spy with my little eye...Donald A. Thomas, Jr worked at Atari in the 1980's and has an insider's knwloedge of the industry. His site is a Museum of video gaming - www.icwhen.com
Thrusting through the skyThrustmaster was the first "hard core" flight sim gear. It was modelled -partly - on the real joysticks and throttles found in military jets. Here is an overview of the Thrustmaster legacy - Thrustmaster
is one of the most user-friendly devices I've laid my hands on. Although designed with
Land Combat Sims
in mind I have a feeling it will adapt quite nicely to Flight Sims - acting as a
programmable throttle and MFD controller.

JetFighter IIHe he he - I remember this one well. At the time I had an Atari ST and used to play this on a friend's PC - I believe he had a 386. Heaps of fun - I remember he (who shall remain nameless) had no luck at all catching enemy fighters until I showed him my special manoeuver ..... the "Immelman"... !!!!!
