  Download - MSFS History movie

           In my opinion the best file for download is my FS History movie (191MB) which describes whole history of subLOGIC - Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Microsoft Flight Simulator History - YouTube

           My previous movie (159MB), issued in 2006, included 25 clips from 25 versions of subLOGIC - Microsoft Flight Simulator. Now, it includes all versions from subLOGIC 3D Graphics Package Demo, the first ever subLOGIC Flight Simulator 1 for Apple II, to the latest Microsoft Flight Simulator X with Acceleration Expansion Pack. There are included very rare versions for NEC PC, Data General One and rare subLOGIC Scenery Disks for Apple II and IBM PC. Whole movie takes almost 40 minutes. I guess the video could be viewed too long and boring, but my purpose was to record graphics design of each Flight Simulator version through many years of its development and save them for history. In addition everyone can find his first version. The movie says more than thousand words. Now it is available on-line on YouTube as well. You can download my website promotional video in HD resolution.

The Microsoft Flight Simulator history movie

           My movie has a musical accompaniment, but I released the edition without music as well. So you can hear only original sounds. I have to notice you, that some clips have not sounds, because some Flight Simulator versions have not sounds.

Technical details

The movie was captured and edited by Camtasia Studio 6.0.1 with TechSmith codec. The final movie was edited and subtitled by Microsoft Movie Maker 2.1.  I used following emulators to get running old versions: AppleWin 1.17.2.0 (Apple II), MESS (TRS-80, IBM PC CGA, Macintosh Plus, Color Computer 3), DOSBox (IBM PC, Tandy, Data General One), Steem (Atari ST), Basilisk II (Macintosh s OS Mac 7.5), WinUAE (Amiga), Atari800WinPlus (Atari 800), Vice (Commodore 64), Neko Project 2 (NEC PC-9801), T98-NEXT (NEC PC-9821), NLMSX 0.48 (MSX) and M88 for Win32 v2.21 (NEC PC-8801). I used Video Edit Magic 4.45 for color correction (inversion and gray shades) of Data General One clip.
