Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

X-Plane is a comprehensive and powerful flight simulator with a realistic flight model.

X-Plane is the most realistic civilian flight simulator ever released for the personal computer. The flight dynamics are the same type that are used by engineers in predicting the performance of new aircraft designs. Coupled with Part-Maker and Plane-Maker (included) you have in front of you a system that is powerful enough to enter your own aircraft designs and fly them, getting a flight performance prediction that is accurate enough for engineering use.

Improvements in version 4.50:
• Forest fires!
Select the B-26 water-bomber from the "Fighters" folder...
Now go to the "Forest Fire Approach" option in the "Settings" menu...
Fly the approach and jettison your water payload right over the fire to put part of it out!
(Put more water in with the "Set Weights & Fuel" window to fly another approach)
• New window backgrounds in X-Plane.... tell us if you like them and we will put them in all the other programs, too.
• Changed ATC activation to ENTER key, and you can now use arrow keys and ENTER key to make ATC selections
• New "wind-check" ATC option... make that ATC selection on final approach to get the current winds atthe field.
• Custom objects: if you set the color of a LIGHT to 99 99 99 the light is PULSING.
• No lights around custom obstacles in the water (like boats) and no taxiway lights around dirt/grass/gravel runways at night.
• Hitting ENTER closes any open window... some people had a hard time selecting zap boxes.
• Now there is another serial-port output option for those who want a different set of data output.
• VVI labels not drawn automatically on custom panels... this allows more instrument panel customization.
• Visibility goes up as you climb automatically... this should do better with giving a visible horizon at altitude, even on foggy days.
