Falcon 4 - the definitive edition

Recommended Posts

i bought the original release and played it right up to BMS4.2 hires plus hitiles. didnt know someone was still working on it as the site went down years ago (cant remember its name). i still have the folder with all 750MB of update files in it, god it was a pain to install fully. last time i played it i remember there was a fog/ cloudbase problem. when flying in the valleys and mountains using NVG the fog went opaque and when you came out of the base of it, it was a sharp planar division. Do you know if it has been fixed? watching that vid makes me want to install it again.

Yep, the definitive version of perhaps the most ambitious jet sim ever made. Fifteen years on and it still can't be beaten in terms of the dynamic campaign.

BMS 4.32 is remarkably painless - particularly if you're used to the 'Falcon Dance' of old ;)

As to your NVG problem, I've not experienced anything like that - everything is reasonably seamless. Although some of the graphics do look a bit dated :(

Some smart people managed to get EF2000 to work on modern Windows and DirectX.

I can remember back in 1996... being 15 years old and pretending to be ill so I could get the day of school and sit and play EF2000 instead. Much more interesting than double French!

Great to see BMS doing so much greatvwork on the King of flightsims.

Many hours spent on the Korean peninsula by day and night in the best campaign game I have ever seen.

Great stuff.

Bumping an old thread. Those that are into the details of sims like they are of modelling.  BMS 4.33 is the CLOSEST thing by far to flying the real Viper, and it keeps getting better.
