I used to play this game some years back. Its a serious 1st person shooter action game for PC. No mutiple spawn. If you are killed you have to wait for round to end. No cheats and only multiplayer. Game is owned and developed by the United states army. You need a higher end PC with good graphics card to enjoy this game.

Is this still available? Man i loved this game since it was free of cost and a multiplayer. Have they upgraded the game? The scenarios it takes you to is just like real life. I think youd have got this with your digit magazine or ic chip.

Microsoft Fs 2004 will work beautifully on this machine. Please mentiom your operating system too. For fsx your gpu may suffice but i recommend buying and trying out first. If you just want to fly on the default packages yoir computer should serve you well. In case you want to have extra addon planes, airports, sceneries then youd need a faster gpu, minimum 40gb harddrive for extra addons and more ram possibly 8gb. And your processor also may need to be upgraded.

But youl be able to play fsx and fs9 easily with the default packages. In fact my laptop didnt have gfx card and it was the intel chipset. I managed to get 50fps in the sky and 32fps in the airport and ground areas. According to the details and ive plenty of addons. In my experience fs2004 works the best with as many addons as you want without significant processing power.

Hope this helped sir. And also get an app called Gamebooster from iobit.com. It does wonders.

Regards

I am much of an offline player. I do have a PSN ID but don't get online much.
Mass Effect 3 is on my list but haven't been able to lay my hands on it yet.
Hopefully will get COD MW3 this weekend.
Apart for this, I have finished the COD series, Resistance series, Killzone 2 and 3, Uncharted 1 and 2, GTA 4 and few others.
Most of these games I rent from moviemart.

Thanks Avinash. What's your feedback on Battlefield? I haven't been able to makeup my mind to get this game or not.

I finished COD MW3 in 3 night sessions, they were just couple of hours.
Although with good graphics card I was able to enjoy it on Full HD Resolution.

will grab max payne 3 from flipkart sometime.

You are right. I got this game first from chip long long back and that was AAO version 1.0. The game has seen several updates since then and the current version i think is 3.2
The game is available for download from the site i posted.

So were you on Chip forums?
Since you reminded me of this game im going to get this after a few days. V1.0 was amazing. Hope they retained all that awesomeness.
Cheers

Feeling embarassed that I dint know such a simple thing. All this while, I have been trying Ctrl + Enter!

Thanks bro, Alt + Enter worked!

By the way, if anyone is looking for FS X, here is a great deal -

Microsoft Flight Simulator X game | Game | Flipkart.com PC

Its the Gold edition. I myself bought one, but for 600 bucks...

By the way, thanks to all you guys, I have finally mastered the skill of landing a big jet properly! Though at times, I do make some mistakes. And yea, its fun.

I have seen many people flying Jet airways. How can I do that? Is it free?

Also, in 'Free flight' mode, the aircraft is directly on the runway, waiting for take off. Is it possible that we can control everything from boarding to take off preparation to in-flight announcement to finally take off. and after landing, can we move to an assigned gate, disembark passengers and luggage?

That would be more realistic.

To enjoy the free flight mode, while selecting flight and airport, you'll get to select from where you will depart. There will be runway options and hangar or gate options. select the gate option to start your flight from the departure gate. You will then have to taxi to the runway.
And to get the experience of flying passengers and luggage, download FSpassengers and fs2 crew. Its just like realistic aviaiton company. Your passengers rate your take off flying and landing skills. According to that you are demoted or promoted. And you would need payware add on aircraft such as Qualitywings 757 to get the announcements.
For the jet airways skin you can download the repaint inline from AVSIM.com for free and if you have bought PMDG or other aircraft, their sites provide the repaints for all companies.
And about alt+enter your problem was nothing. It took me few days to figure that out. I reinstalled fsx to remove that but somehow kept popping up. Suddenly i hit some key and it disappears. Then wasted 2hrs trying to figure out which key i hit by mistake. Lol

FSX should work quite well on this PC.

Finding Flight sims for PC in India is quite hard. There are are very few takers for this genre of games.

Here's a part of my collection, HAWX & HAWX 2 don't really qualify as a flight sims, but still.
