Yeah JD, I remember when I worked in Homebase we sold chairs like that. They were a bugger to stack, though. It's all about those back legs...

Ah Crap! I just talked myself out of buying this game and now you've got me wanting it again!!!!!
D2D has it on for $20. But I'd have to go get a joystick too......

Is there any plans to get rid of the "phone home to play" DRM does anyone know?

Sure is pretty.....

Although I'm not sure 100% confirmed, it has been mentioned that sometime in the future you would be able to play offline. Even though getting the hang of the game is hard, defintely worth the $20. I would get it before the discoutn ends.

Really difficult to shoot a plane down. At least for me,(Bad hand/wrist.) Played the Russian Roulette scenario with an Alb DV.

Naturally, the first opponent was a Dolphin.......

First engagement, a head on pass. Pulled the trigger, and........... nothing.......

Would really help if I charged the guns first........

Round and round we go. Got hit, and a great red haze fills my screen. Tried to set dowm, and the ground rudely flipped me over.

Second attempt. Whadda ya know, another Dolphin. Round and round, head on passes, lots of stalling, (by me). I manage to get guns on him a few times. Was never sure I hit him untill, low and behold, his port upper wing, followed by the lower, rip off.

I'll be damnned, I got a kill. Then the next opponent, a Camel, shows up. Twists and turns till we settle for a head on pass. Very short fight, as our port wings touched. Ahh well.......
When I argued with the Empress, I always had the last word. That word was, sorry. But it was the last word.

@Aurelian:

What's your first impression, though (gfx, look and feel, number of missions, general amount of content... is there a mission builder)?

@All:

With the low price of $20, I am tempted to get it...
But I don't feel like getting a top-notch joystick, so I would probably end up using my old "guitar" (GRAVIS Phoenix joystick), where I can program 40 something keys, plus it has rudder/thrust control. Would you guys advise against playing Rise with such an old stick (as it may reduce the fun) or not?

Dolphin is my favourite. Seems quite powerful and stable. Certainly the easiest I've flown imo.

To all - it's very, very difficult. But it's a must buy for the price if you are anything close to enjoying flight sims. I haven't played with simplified flight model and targeting help etc, but will do tonight to see if the difficulty eases up. But remember this - we all want good AI in all our games - the AI is this game seems to be brilliant. It's hard to get a kill but not only because the birds are hard to fly - but the AI are all over the place...well, the fighters I've come across anyway.

With the people suffering from "twisty hand" on the stick rudder...I've set my Joystick yaw deadzone to 60% I think (left hand value - there are two params you can adjust for yaw). That seemed to cure the twisty hand syndrome for me. pretty much.

As for a joystick, a simple cheap one should be enough. Only real die hard or people with more expendable cash go for the big babies. I have one of these and it's good enough...very sensitive and a good load of buttons.

For the Brits
For the US peeps

There are cheaper, but I wouldn't know about those. Also for another £25 you could get the force feedback, but I always found force feedback to be a pain in my joystick [:'(] although I wouldn't do without force feedback on my steering wheel.

Well.... couldn't pass up the deal.... so many games so little time.....
Will slip out this weekend and get a joystick, but probably won't get flying until next week when my wife is out of town.....

Anybody tried online flying/fighting? After I get some practice in maybe we can form a Matrix Squadron......

From what I gather, online isn't so hot right now - but one of the things they are focussing on as it'll be a big part of the game...also I think what online there is it is only co-op!
