For System 1 - 5
Emulation
This game works with: Mini vMac

Microsoft has licensed the Sublogic Flight Simulator to be released by Microsoft as Microsoft Flight Simulator . Sublogic continued to make it's own series , from the original FS 1 for the Apple II , to the FS 2 that boomed it's way to all the popular consoles . The quality of the Flight Simulators are split into different generations , with FS 1 as first-gen , FS 2 for the Apple II and some other consoles at the time as second . The third generation is also released as FS 2 , but to more powerful machines with more functions and graphics . Microsoft Flight Simulator 1 is technically second-gen , but this MFS 1 released for the Macintosh has third-gen features . Microsoft Flight Simulator 2 is also third-gen . In other words , this Macintosh version is supposed to be called either "Sublogic Flight Simulator II for the Macintosh" , or "Microsoft Flight Simulator II for the Macintosh" . There are two FS II history sites , and a Wikipedia page on "The History Of Microsoft Flight Simulator" , which shows the generation listings I refer to .

System Requirements :

Macintosh 128k , 512k & Plus
B&W (1-bit) monitor . All others won't work .

This crashes if I try to run from my own disk . It is meant to boot from the disk image (in the download) . I've not successfully controlled the plane , but you might have some luck . No mouse will appear (at least in my case) , so everything is keyboard .

Instructions on how to run the Mac FS 1 program:

"Then there was that little problem with the invisible cursor. That's solved easily by switching to "full screen" mode (by holding [Ctrl] and pushing the F key. When switching back to "normal" or "magnified" mode the cursor should remain visible."

I wish there was a way to extract from the emulator or mount a usb floppy to transfer to. This works great for mini vmac but I just wish it worked on a real mac like my SE or ibook.

...no mountable file system error in OSX 10.3

You'll find about zero images of floppy disks from 1986 and older, for System 1-5 is declared at page top, aren't readable by OSX. You could install "MFS Lives" (search for it to find software) on OSX 10.4 Tiger and maybe 10.5 Leopard also, this will enable you to mount images and then access these files using the Finder, but doubtful they can function even in Classic mode. The emulator "Mini vMac" is what this needs.

But this versions gives no mountable file system error in OSX 10.3.

Heard this with a number of other disk images as well, but they works fine within the emulator.

Yep, I still have the Apple // version of this,
and it is amazing how Flight Sims have come a long way (and other games)
even though I didn't grow up with that generation,
I look at those Apple // games in Awe and think how much good/great creativity was at that time..
