This game runs at 2560x1440. I set the resolution in the advanced graphics options and it runs fine at that resolution.

The text is a little small but perfectly playable. It also runs perfectly at 1920x1080.

This is a welcome relief after scouring the store during the sale only to be put off from buying many games which are limited to 1024x768. I've also been put off by Matrix wanting £17.99 for games older than a decade that may or may not run. If they were to bundle some of the old games together for, say, £20 I'd be willing to take a risk on them.

I took the risk with this as I played the original on the C64 and I used to have this gem but lost the disk and couldn't remember my login details from all those years ago.

It's great that it scales so well to modern resolutions and looks pretty good at 2560x1440 for a ten year old game.

Looks great, with that detail of resolution we should be able to find Flt 370

I had to make the image smaller to fit the forum's screenshot upload limit but it still looks pretty good. I can play this game at 1366x768 on my Win 8.1 laptop and at 2560x1440 on my Win 7 gaming desktop.

It really does scale very well and runs beautifully. I think it is a severely underrated game.


BTW, if you haven't already, do yourself a favour and grab the scenario Megamod.

I've also added this to my game

I'm loving it.

I had the Mega Mod but I wasn't certain if it would install over any of the existing scenarios or files?

No, it won't do that. Just unzip the Megamod into your CAW folder and everything will be fine. The original scenarios will still be there and you will have some juicy new scenarios to play.
