I'm downloading @ 40 to 40 Kbts. And uploading @ 25 to 35 Kbts. Looks like the ultimate file sharing circle. That is what is happening isn't, with the uploading? S!

09-27-2003, 05:58 PM
No offence, and I don't want to sound like a jerk either...but I really recommend you guys use BitTorrent to download this file, I am currently downloading at full speed...110Kb/s

You may Google "BitTorrent" to find the application.

Good luck!

Any way to get it without file sharing? That's not my bag.

Can someone put it on ftp, plz?

Not for the forseable future. It appears that the LOMAC guys are big into the file sharing thing via P2P. They have quite a few posts about bittorrent and the K thingy. Bittorrent is used by them to share their movie files. That actually might be the best way to share movies without having to have an acutal site. Heck the guys that even have site could save some B/W by using it.

That's odd, since it's made by Eagle Dynamics. 1C might be a little miffed if they stole their code. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Last I checked, it's using the Flanker engine.

Christ, can anyone get stuff right over here?

It is NOT using the Flanker engine. If the last time you looked and it was, then the last time you looked was 2001.

And now I suppose that any UBI game that has rolling green terrain is FB originated. Eagle Dynamics must be happy with that thought.

It stuttered?!? Oh my gawd, NO! A demo that stuttered!?! No, must stay away from that product! A demo that stutters! What next? A demo with no multiplayer?!

I'm d/ling this mother, and not using that farking biotorrent crap.

Look over at the www.agw.warbirds.com (http://www.agw.warbirds.com) "off topic area for d/l sites w/o biotorrent.

I stand corrected. I haven't checked since the 2001 release date.

They have the demo. It's in French but you will get the idea. It's the first thing on the news page.

Or for lazy people click here then "download" in the upper right corner>>>

Is this demo in English? The bittorrent one??

XyZspineZyX
09-27-2003, 08:13 PM
hmmmm played it and don't know what to think of it. The Graphics are sweet I don't think they look like FB though. My Sidewinder FFB felt like a limp **** and I don't seem to have all the sounds. I turned hardware accel for sound off in dxdiag which the readme told me to do but still can't hear my GAU. I know modern cockpits are very quiet but surely you would be able to hear the GAU! Let alone feel it through my FFB but it is a demo.

I think I still prefer flying a feisty little girl like my Gustav. The A10 was so smooth and quiet I almost fell asleep if it weren't for the Shilka ripping me to pieces.

BTW Track IR works on the demo if you are wondering but it's not perfect....well not for me anyway, I can't seem to look very far up with it.

Leadspitter is quite the idiot. I think he has some sort of chip on his shoulder since all he does is dig into 1C and Maddox.

That's what I'm looking forward to in that game, too, Buzz. I'm gonna be a ground poundin' fool in that A10./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

LOL, harkens me back to the good old days of A10-Tank Killer: Desert Storm.

Lock On: Modern Air Combat Demo Readme



The Lock On playable demo allows you to experience a sample of game play from the final product. This demo is created from Beta code of the project and is not representative of the final code. There are known bugs in the demo and frame rates have not been fully optimized.

The Lock On Demo provides you the ability to fly Quick Start missions for the A-10A "Warthog" and the MiG-29A "Fulcrum".

A-10A Mission

To fly A-10A mission, use your mouse to click on the FLY button underneath the picture of the A-10A on the right portion of the screen. After a loading period, you will begin the mission in the cockpit of the aircraft. To get started, press the S key to unpause the missions (missions in Lock On begin in a paused state).

Ahead of you are a group of target vehicles that you can destroy. There is a group of moving trucks along a road and several armored vehicles in the field beyond it. Note that there is a ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" in this field and it is capable of shooting you down with anti-aircraft artillery fire.

Once you have unpaused the game, press the 7 key to change the weapon system to air-to-ground mode. You can then press the D key to cycle weapons (bombs and rockets) or press the C key to toggle the GAU-8A 30mm cannon.

To help defeat the "Shika" you may want to activate the jammer by pressing the E key and pressing the Q key to release chaff and flares.

To navigate around the cockpit, you can use the KEYPAD ARROW keys to pan around the cockpit and you can use the KEYPAD / and KEYPAD * keys to zoom in and out of the cockpit. To recenter your view, you can press the KEYPAD 5 key. If you want to examine an external view of your aircraft, you can press the F2 key and if you want to cycle between external views of the ground vehicles you can repeatedly press the F7 key. To return to the cockpit, press the F1 key.

If you wish to land, press the 1 key to activate navigation mode. Follow the waypoints and you will be brought to the nearest runway. When near the runway, press the G key to lower your landing gear and press SHIFT F to active full flaps. Once on the ground, you can hold down the W key to active wheel brakes.

To exit the mission, press the ESC key.

MiG-29A Mission

To fly MiG-29A mission, use your mouse to click on the FLY button underneath the picture of the MiG-29A on the right portion of the screen. After a loading period, you will begin the mission in the cockpit of the aircraft. To get started, press the S key to unpause the missions (missions in Lock On begin in a paused state).

In front of you and to the right a bit is a Mirage 2000 that is passing from right to left. Once you press the S key to unpause the mission, press the 4 key to activate the bore sight air-to-air radar mode. Then, press the I key to turn on your radar. In the center of the Heads Up-Display will be a green circle. Maneuver your aircraft to place the Mirage in this circle and press and hold the TAB key to lock the target. When you have a lock, press the SPACE bar or trigger on your joystick to launch a missile.

To navigate around the cockpit, you can use the KEYPAD ARROW keys to pan around the cockpit and you can use the KEYPAD / and KEYPAD * keys to zoom in and out of the cockpit. To recenter your view, you can press the KEYPAD 5 key. If you want to examine an external view of your aircraft, you can press the F2 key. To return to the cockpit, press the F1 key.

If you wish to land, press the 1 key to activate navigation mode. Follow the waypoints and you will be brought to the nearest runway. When near the runway, press the G key to lower your landing gear and press SHIFT F to active full flaps. Once on the ground, you can hold down the W key to active wheel brakes.

To exit the mission, press the ESC key.

Notes

1. If you have sound corruption problems, please set your DirectX hardware acceleration to none.

2. A complete list of key commands is available in the Lock On Demo root directory. The file is named KeyCommands.doc.

3. If you wish to enable the Heat Blur graphic effect, we strongly suggest you disable full scene anti-aliasing (FSAA). Not doing so can result in very poor frame rates.

4. If you have a throttle or rudder pedals, you will need to manually select an axis for these in the Options / Input screen. To do so, select your controller from the Device list, set the toggle switch to Axis, select either rudder or throttle, click the "Change" button, move your controller, then click the OK button.

5. In order to prevent any random inputs to your rudder, create a small dead zone in your rudder response curve.
