This game works with: Basilisk II,

'F/A-18 Hornet: Strike Fighter Simulator' (1.1.2) takes the player deep inside the Middle East conflict, flying the F/A-18 jet fighter, build by McDonnell Douglas.

This golden oldie features detailed aircraft cockpits and a full 3D experience. This game is not simple, a gigantic manual accompanied its retail release with detailed information on how to pilot the F/A-18 aircraft, as well as additional content about all the systems within, from the propulsion system and airframe to the pilot hydration system.

A serial number for the game can be found within the download.

The second download is an updater to ver 1.1.3b1.

Architecture: 68k PPC

F/A-18 Hornet will run on any Mac except: 128, 512, Plus, SE, Portable, Classic or PowerBook 100

Also required is:

Someone added "PPC".

Does this application include PowerPC code?
As of 1993, I don't think so.

Anybody please help! I'm trying to run this (1.0), 2.0 and 3.0 from either BasiliskII (OS 7.5.3, Performa ROM) or SheepShaver (OS 9.0, New World PPC ROM) but here are he problems: 1.0 and 2.0 run from Basilisk, but with poor performance, and only if JIT is turned off - if JIT is turned on, which probably would increase performance (?), I get a "Type 3" error on launch. 1.0 and 2.0 don't work on SheepShaver with OS 9 and I've read that's normal, but 3.0 should work. It does launch, but then when starting a flight it quits saying "Ran out of memory". I tried increasing RAM and setting higher minimum size in file information. Can anyone give me any advice? Thanks!

This game was absolutely brilliant on my Mac Performa 630CD, with Mac OS 7. I eventually got good at it and could blow those silly MiG aircraft outa' that blue yonder! Landing was always tricky for me, though.

Version 1.1.2 works perfectly for me in SheepShaver Mac OS 9 with the highest graphics and sound settings. And after all, the game had the red "Accelerated for Power Macintosh" badge on the box. To actually be able to control the aircraft with the mouse, set Stick to Gravis Mousetick and check off Slow Stick Control.

I wouldn't bother with the update since, according to its notes, it doesn't fix anything terribly critical and is an unsupported beta. Also, keep SheepShaver updated. The latest TEST version as of now (at E-Maculation) has full-screen toggle and "cursor grabbing," which is especially helpful for playing flight simulators in windowed mode.

I can run it under Basilisk 1.42, but not under newer version. Under SheepShaver works too, although control with mouse simply sucks.

This game is a blast just getting skilled enough to land on a Carrier. This used to be one of my favorites on SSW 7. Great with a Flightstick Pro.

Edit: Replaced 'xxx 7' with 'SSW 7' - IIGS User

It sort of runs in SheepShaver. Running on the default settings worked. But the sound didn't work at all. And when I ran it on complex graphics it crashed the whole thing.

Worked in Basilisk for me also (I think that I uploaded that screenshot). I would test out in my SheepShaver, but the download isn't working anymore... nosuchkey and all that. Sad

Edit: I see the mirror! Will try!

I go this to run in Basilisk, but not in SheepShaver.
Could anyone test this game in SheepShaver, please?

I assume this is F/A-18 Hornet 1, but not checked it yet.
