The screensaver displays a group of fighter jets blasting through the sky, flying over mountains, flying thorugh deep canyons, and gliding across valleys at high speeds. The built-in MP3 player is included, so you can listen to music during flight. Version 1.1 features bug fixes, better performance, and improved aircraft trail.
This screensaver wins our praise for its high level of configurability and pleasing 3D design, but owners of older computers may encounter turbulence. After launching Flight Simulator Screensaver, several F/A-16 jets zoom across the screen, accompanied by the roar of their engines. The 3D graphics and terrain looked quite good for the most part, though the sky didn't render properly on a low-end graphics card. We were impressed with the number of customization options. For example, you can change the sky color, the camera angle, and the terrain, and you also can select how many clouds and trees appear in the scene. In addition, you can add your favorite MP3s to create a custom soundtrack. Assuming they have a modern PC, aviation enthusiasts and flight-simulator fans should find this screensaver an appealing download.
"TERRIFIC INTERACTIVE 3D FLIGHT SCR SAVER"
Clear detailed graphics. Smooth running. Optional view selection. Easy understood help screen on key/command definitions. Good selection of setup options and controls for a time unlimited trail version download.
Pitch of jet sound is flat. It does not vary with ascent/descent.
Screensaver locked up one time while exceeding mach I.
Pitch control sluggish and limited on manual control of jet.
No rudder control available.
The ground graphics could use some moving objects like autos, ships, windmill generators etc.
"I got an error first 15 minutes."
I'm running a new system with 250 GB HD, good Nvivdia, and 64x2 processor.
"WELL WORTH THE TRY....INTERESTING"
"CLEAR AND CLEAN VIEW"
GOOD GRAPHICS AND SIMULATION
"Nice smooth graphics and great sound."
I 've been in a F-14 Fighter before as a ride-along. The only thing missing here is the urge to toss you're cookies.....REALLY!!!
That youn can't do with it what you want. But there are so many possibilities.
