Speaking of DCS Flaming Cliffs 3

Recommended Posts

For those of you who own DCS products. Is this a stand alone product (simulator)? Or can this be played on FSX ?

And what exactly do you need to buy to get started?  It seems you have to buy certain legacy products (Flaming Cliffs 2?) and then add on from there.

I just downloaded the free game with just the Frogfoot. Looks like it might be fun, but after years of civilian sims, I'm not sure how fun it would be having people shoot me down! This is going into the "maybe" folder.

Because I HAVE checked their website.

 

Certainly the links for Europe don't work as stated.  Although the impression is they take you to Lock On: Modern Air Combat, they don't.  They take you to Flaming Cliffs 2, which is not I think the latest version and only works with Modern Air Combat anyway, or in the case of Amazon, at best a 2007 version of Lock On, hence my question.

 

So where does Modern Air Combat reside?

Both links work for me, kind of!

 

Link 1 is Amazon, just search for Lock On Modern Air Combat

 

Link 2 is varous version, Lock On Modern Air Combat is further down the page, although it is showing no stock. 

 

One of the used items from Amazon should work fine.

I did that also!  They don't stock it.

 

When I look at it again, the newest version they have is  a cheap re-issue of the 2003 original.  I have been caught like this before: I bought a version of Ubisoft's Sturmovik a few years ago, only to find it only worked in 800x600 resolution or something silly like that.  Once bitten, twice shy!
