Guides on emulating older games

This is an update to F/A-18 Hornet 3.0 (the last flat-shaded version of the Gulf War version of the game) and an update to F/A-18 Korea 1.0 (the first title to use texture maps). These updates will play in multiplayer mode only; they will not work if you're hosting the game on your machine.

There's a pretty big change in the interface between 2.0 and this one. It's a lot easier to pick different missions now, but the game itself is more difficult. The plane handles more realistically at low altitudes, and the old 'hide under 100ft' trick doesn't seem to fool the MiGs anymore.

Multiplayer is great fun - no serial required, although the game does want the CD in the drive if you're hosting. (this hasn't been tried this in an emulator yet, it was running natively on two OS9 machines).

Despite the jump in difficulty and the huge restructuring in the way you operate the F/A-18's systems it does come with a large set of training movies. They're pretty helpful.

In my opinion, this update perhaps sails a little far from 'fun' and 'intuitive' and too much into 'realistic' territory, for my taste. You may feel differently!

As far as "Korea" is concerned, it looks OK for a 2000 era flight sim, and plays basically the same as "Hornet".

3.1 apparently supports USB joysticks.

Enjoy!

This download is also available here, as a .dmg image.

I could really use some help getting this to play (it's looking for the CD). If someone could steer me in the right direction on how to fix this download I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

[EDIT] As far as I can tell, no, this does not "include F/A-18 Hornet 3.0 (the last flat-shaded version of the Gulf War version of the game) and F/A-18 Korea (the first title to use texture maps)." There is no install Hornet 3.0 or Korea 1.0 with this download, only install Hornet 3.1 and Korea 1.1 which are UPDATES to the original installed versions. Therefore, this download is useless (as a standalone game) without the previous 3.0 and 1.0 versions.

From another site: "As the version numbers suggest, these are incremental upgrades to the games themselves (the Gold CD is available to owners of Hornet 3.0 and Korea for a small shipping and handling fee, or the updates can be downloaded online at MacGameFiles.com)."

I've posted on the A-Train entry... Wink

llGS_User: That's weird about Authorization. Is your browser accepting cookies?

I've had this "Not authorized to view" happen to me as well, but it's only when the page has *never* been revised and I'm trying to view a revision that hasn't happened yet. So the message in this case should probably say "There are no revisions to view" instead of the confusing "Not authorized to view".

A little clarification never hurt, especially for new users of emulators.

Yes, that's true Wink

But the 68k and/or PPC information could be wrong as well (and if it is a Wiki, everyone is able to vandalize the informations). Look the A-Train entry, where the information is currently completely wrong.

Apparent to you. A little clarification never hurt, especially for new users of emulators. People here miss check boxes all the time (which is fine because it is a wiki), so perhaps this could have been for 68k as well. I verified that it is not. Smile

Failed to launch in Basilisk? If it is a PowerPC game, then apparently.

The original F-18 Korea CD contained a real flight training seminar from a Marine Corp Pilot-very informative.

I'll write what I know here! Smile
This includes F/A-18 Hornet 3.0 (the last flat-shaded version of the Gulf War version of the game) and F/A-18 Korea (the first title to use texture maps).
There's a pretty big change in the interface between 2.0 and this one. It's a lot easier to pick different missions now, but the game itself is about a million times harder. Plane handles more realistically at low altitudes, and my old 'hide under 100ft' trick doesn't seem to fool the MiGs anymore.
Multiplayer is great fun - no serial required, although the game does want the CD in the drive if you're hosting. (Haven't tried this in an emulator yet, I was running it natively on two OS9 machines).
Despite the jump in difficulty and the huge restructuring in the way you operate the F-18s systems (seriously, the radar, autopilot and waypoint stuff is ten times harder to use now) it does come with a set of lessons that sound like they're being read by Jamie Hyneman. They're pretty helpful and if you've played earlier titles in the series, you should be able to at least get through a mission or two.

I think that maybe 3.0 sails a little far from 'fun' and 'intuitive' and too much into 'realistic' territory, for my taste. You may feel differently!

Haven't tried Korea 1.0 much. It looks ok for a 2000 era flight sim, and plays basically the same as 3.0
The CD also comes with a lot of 3rd party stuff that I haven't looked at yet.

3.1 apparently supports USB joysticks.

Enjoy!
