DCS: P-51D Mustang Beta Access with Pre-Purchase


The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics send along word that their latest flight sim, DCS: P-51D Mustang, is available as a digital download pre-purchase for $39.99. Pre-purchase also provides access to pre-release Beta versions of the title.

Quote:
The Mustang was among the best and most well-known fighters used by the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. Possessing excellent range and maneuverability, the P-51 operated primarily as a long-range escort fighter and also as a ground attack fighter-bomber with bombs, rockets, and machine guns. The Mustang served in nearly every combat zone during WWII and proved to be what many consider the most successful fighter in history.

The DCS: P-51D Mustang offers both highly-detailed simulation and easy-to-play "game" mode options for both hardcore and casual gamers. When in simulation mode, this is the most authentic simulation of the P-51D Mustang that has ever been done for the PC. Enjoy both the thrill of flying this warbird and operating its various weapons against a variety of ground and airborne targets.

An interactive training system puts you in the cockpit with an instructor as he walks you step-by-step of learning to fly the Mustang.

A powerful yet easy-to-use mission editor allows you to create your own missions and campaigns. A one-click Mission Generator also allows you to instantly create battles as small or large as you wish.

Fly online with built-in server browser that supports up to 32 players in both head-to-head and cooperative gameplay. Fly online with other DCS aircraft like the Black Shark and the A-10C Warthog.

Considering it took me over an hour of web searching, attempting tweaks, downloading and reinstalling drivers, directX, etc just to get A-10 to RUN, I would say no thanks to a BETA version of their software.

Turns out my "problem" was a limitation of Windows 32-bit + 4GB of RAM. Totally unique, I know. No one saw THAT coming.

I don't have a flight stick, they're a bit expensive nowadays.

You can find a Thrustmaster Hotas X Flight Stick or Saitek Cyborg F.L.Y. 5 Flight Stick for under $50. Not exactly a virtual cockpit, but they get the job done.

Edit: Amazon has the Saitek PS38 Cybrog F.L.Y5 Flight Stick for $39.24.

I use a Saitek X52 Flight Control System.

Want to say though that I have checked amazon before it is just that they rarely ship big stuff here, so I wrote them off visa vis sticks. However they ship that contraption you use so... cool.

Anyone else and the stick is either a POS or costs out the ass or they only stock that $500 thing.

But wotevs. I'll tack it onto another order I want, just not this month, Diablo 3 collectors edition is expensive.
