MiG-29 Fulcrum (Novalogic)

Revisiting the sim 20 years later.

I had great fun with the fast paced missions some 20 years after initial contact. Here is a gallery of some highlights.

MiG-29 Fulcrum Mission 02: Takeoff & Landing

I was busy as a one-armed paper hanger on final approach! Quite tricky to get the recommended 10 degrees AOA... more practice is the answer I feel.

MiG-29 Fulcrum Mission 03: Air to Air 01

This was tough... they shot at me (with live ordnance) ... I thought it was supposed to be a training sortie... ; -(

MiG-29 Fulcrum Mission 03: Air to Air

I think I only just scraped through this mission because the MiG-21's couldn't find me!

MiG-29 Fulcrum Mission 04: Air to Ground

I passed the bombing, not elegantly but nonetheless, then a rudder failure meant trouble on landing... I mean WHO or WHOM parked a tank there?

05: Dogs of War

I did escort the fighters successfully. My wingman did most of the work as I directed him via voice command. And then I took out the enemy AWACS (scratch one MiG-29...). This is the first video I've made with voice control, using Voice Attack. I make so much more use of the wingman when I can simply talk to him rather than hunt around in the dark for keys!

MiG-29 Fulcrum Mission 06: Snake Venom


MiG-29 Fulcrum Mission 07: NAVEX

A simple NAVEX turns into a Badger hunt!

Campaign Misson 01

Ridgy Didge MiG"Flight testing my ridgy-didge state-of-the-art hotas voice-controlled Fulcrum!
1. Pan view working and mapped to the HOTAS. Not TrackIR but pretty good for a 20 year old sim that doesn't support mouse look.
2. Voice control for control surfaces (flaps, gear, chute), wingman.
3. Draw distance? Can anyone help? I doubled the draw distance in the MIG29.INI file, but every time you enter the sim it overwrites it back to 26.
4. Low speed, high alpha
5. and... I didn't take the situation at the threshold seriously enough..."

Dogs of War

MiG-29 Fulcrum: Dogs of War: Take 2In this action packed and punchy edit I refly the mission which is becoming somewhat of a nemesis! But it's still a lot of fun.

MiG-29 Fulcrum: Hawk's Perch

Night flying! - - - Dangerous - - - Exciting! - - - Even more so when you're being shot at. Actually the graphics in MiG-29 Fulcrum look stunning at night, and of course draw distance becomes irrelevant. Enjoy this one!

MiG-29 Fulcrum: Fox Trap

Some Tu-160's turned up and put on quite the show with their four afterburning engines! ... Then we shot them down.

MiG-29 Fulcrum: Snake Venom

Second attempt at this bombing mission. The bombing is very forgiving in this sim... but then we ran into the most 'Top Gun' helo pilot of all time! Then I shot him down. Eventually I shot him down. I found the explanation for the 'Top Gun' helo pilot in the documentation for the mission editor. Flight models and aircraft models are independent... and the manual warns not to assign an F-16 flight model to a chopper... which is exactly what some wag at Novalogic did here!
