    Jane's WW2 Fighters

    And how come no one has even brought up the subject of one of the greatest legends of combat sims?

    And how many of us still fly it?

    I run it every so often.

    My computer doesn't like it anymore, but this was my first combat flight simulator. I had a lot of fun with it, and I enjoyed all the info it had on the planes.

    I started with this FS and fly it from time to time but it is not as real as IL2 FS.
    Now my 5 years old son flies it.

    Me; I play it every once in a while. It's more user-friendly than CFS 3, but a little more limited as far as which a/c you can fly. I almost always fly Luftwaffe, which is why I prefer CFS3; you can fly the Zerstorer Do 335, and even a Go 229.

    Wow, it's been a few years since I've played Jane's. Gotta say though, I had fun playing it. The only thing I didn't like was the gunsight's on the 109. I know that the gunsight used in the game was hisorically accurate, but I still couldn't use it effecitvely. I usually blew through all my ammo just to get one plane.

    I haven't flown Janes in I don't know how long. It was one of the first sims that I tried and loved it.

    BTW, I like the Christmas sig you got going on there bud.

    I just picked up Jane's in a bargain bin but haven't played it yet. Don't think my PC can handle it at this time.

    I bet your machine could run Jane's with little trouble, NJ...

    I used to run Jane's on a Pentium Pro 200 MHz system with 32Mb RAM and a Matrox Millineum 16Mb Video card...

    I still run it nowdays on either my XP system or my Legacy Win98 gamer with no trouble at all.

    There's new mods, terrains, maps and aircraft for it nowdays, too!

    Good God man, I had forgotten about that!

    LMAO...that was funny, really.

    It did give you a great opportunity to see what a Fw190 can do, though

    What I should have done for this thread though, is ask what everyone's favorite mission was...because I'd have to say for me it was Grand Alliance!

    For the WW2 Fighters crowd, Rammjager just posted a new video

    He used Boston's rendition of the Star Spangled Banner for the background music and it works really well!
