It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Have you got a chance to try the VR?  How does it look/play?

That looks really good!  I've had those Star Wars games for years and have yet to play them....I even have a couple installed but never even opened them up.

The Force is with me.

I actually cannot get it running in VR. I need to search the forums and try to troubleshoot it.

In the meantime, I'm playing it with TrackIR and absolutely having a blast.

Aye, it does kick ass.
But beware, creator in his latest video does say he knows a DCMA from the big mouse could be right around the corner, considering the (good) press the mod is getting, so do get it fast before it might be too late. It's a chunky piece of software, and if they were to go after it, it might also impact the XWAUP project - so make sure to get both. HDD space is cheap these days - unlike it was back then in 1999  :coolsmiley:

Thanks for the heads up!   I bought X-Wing Alliance last night ($4 on Steam for a few more hours) after making sure I still had a joystick, but haven't downloaded the mod yet.

Panda AV does not like the TFTC executable so if you have that as your AV you will have to finagle it a little. Took me a few tries but I got it working!

seems that there are other mods/ungrades needed before installing this but I dont know where to get them.
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

They are linked in the TFTC install instructions on the moddb link I posted.
