I checked out the new screen shots but not he dev diaries or their forum post as of yet. Just checking trying to keep this alive on our end knowing that this will be our new flight SIMM of choice and it will give us years of online and offline fun.

I'm curious to know if we are as a group is still interested in this SIMM? Softball, Kodiac (where are you man?), Grifter, Steel, Panzer and the rest. If this game were to come out tomorrow would you think about buying it?

20mm is interviewing Rjetster about Fighter OPs, I am reading it now:

I'll answer your question when I see it for sale and it's ready to ship. I've been a $25 a year member of the Area 51 club for the last 2-3 years, so I'm really hoping the project pans out.

I plan on getting the game but not really sure how much we'll end up playing this in WOF. I mean, we barely fly Falcon and Lock On any more.

The reading I've been doing on the SIMM is very impressive, and I think that the curve with lock-on and Falcon is like Rjetster said in his simhq interview very daunting and learing to fly on your own is not the way to go. If you truly teach them how to use your product for free no less (buy a product for a huge nice penny like photoshop but then have to spend thousands on learing how to use it just to get your monies worth). I envision that I will truly learn how to utilize inflight refueling which is a must if your flying around the world.

Softball you should receive the game for free.

20mm: What's the copy protection system for FO? I've read some reports by FO team member "Buckshot" on this, and I see that the team clearly understands the frustration of the simulation community in this respect.

Rick: The fact is that the availability of pirated versions of any software does not depend on the copy protection scheme employed by the developers. The only thing that counts is the success of the software; and if it exceeds a certain threshold, pirated versions will inevitably appear. We have yet to see a successful copy protected program that has not been pirated (yes, even games using Starforce have been pirated, although not conveniently in some cases).

Companies invest a great deal on more complex copy protection mechanisms, yet the pirates need only a few weeks to crack the most advanced copy protection. The pirate and users of pirated software face absolutely no difficulty in what they are doing. The only real victim here is the legitimate user who is being treated like a thief and inconvenienced in different ways.

Various activation-based protection schemes are not attractive either. The experience the user has is that he/she does not own the software that they have purchased; and whether the software ends up being activated depends on the software developer/publisher.

We will most likely keep the copy protection aspect of Fighter Ops limited to online activities and in general, anything that requires the Internet. Offline single-player use of the product will not force the user to jump through hoops to get the software to work.
Above is a quote from the interview...interesting turn of events for pirates.


Also there is a video download (there is a copyright readme so you have to seek permission to post it on another website). So use the link above for the interview and at the very end is the video.

Well, you are obviously not interested in Falcon 4 so maybe this sim will get you back into the genre?
