  Wanted !

           The most valuable is information! For example I have not any information about a custom version of Flight Simulator for Cessna's retail flight stores (I do not know a number of the version and a computer type for which was made). Still nobody let me know. Does anybody remember this issue? I would be appreciate your knowledge. In my opinion, it is very important to save them for history! In case you are willing to help me, please let me know to my e-mail address or simply leave a message in the guestbook.

           I am very glad, that I received very interesting and valuable information from Thomas Funke from Germany, Fred Peralta from USA, information about a special edition of MSFS 2.12 for AST Research, information about a custom conversion by Andras Szigethy from Hungary and so on. Please, I need this kind of information.

There are eight questions that should be answered. Some of them are already solved.

1.

Who is an author of the A2-FS1 (Flight Simulator 1 for Apple II) with 12x12 squares scenery? Was it made originally by subLOGIC (Bruce Artwick)?

I have never seen neither an original manual nor an original MG tape or a floppy disk. So it seems it was made by someone out of subLOGIC with use of the original Artwick's issue. Do you have any information?

   
2.

Is there any other Flight Simulator issue (by subLOGIC or Microsoft) for any computer platform than we know (timeline)? I guess I have them all, but... What are for example following unknown (unofficial?) manual issues (the pictures on the left)?

the unofficial?? manual to MS Flight Simulator 1.00 the original manual to MS Flight Simulator 1.00

Some unknown (unofficial?) manual (left) and the original manual (right) to MSFS 1.00

The unknown manual the original manual to MS Flight Simulator 3.0

Some unknown (unofficial?) manual (left) and the original manual (right) to MSFS 3.0

It seems like some unofficial (illegal) issues of Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.00 and 3.0 manual for IBM PC. Do you have any information? Were there the software with the releases?

   
3.

Does anyone know anything about a special Flight Simulator issue for Cessna’s flight stores? I have only a notice from the past, that it was made without crash message. So, it seem like some very early issue of subLOGIC or Microsoft Flight Simulator. I even do not know if it is the truth information. Do you have any further information regarding to this?

   
4.

There is a demo as a part of subLOGIC 3D Graphics Package for Apple II (1979). It is the first ever public software regarding to later subLOGIC Flight Simulator 1 for Apple II.

Does the demo (with Flight Simulator pictures) exist for any other type of computer than Apple II? Is it any other public demo before 1979? Do you have any information?

   
5.

In 1991 was published the information about new subLOGIC Flight Assignment: Air Force Pilot Trainer, since 1992 was called more simplest - Flight Assignment: Air Force. Unfortunately Sierra bought subLOGIC in 1995 and it seems, that the new simulator was never released. Does anyone have available at least beta version or any information? The picture was published on the back side cover of subLOGIC Scenery Collection Set B already in 1991. Last notice, about possible release, subLOGIC announced in 1995 (Computer Flight Newsbriefs 35).

6.

Did subLOGIC really release their Scenery Disks 8 and 10? It seems they were never released. Scenery disks 8 and 10 were never released, although, the reasons are unknown.

   
7.

There is New York scenery in Microsoft Flight Simulator since version 1.00 and I know that there are WTC "twins" buildings at Manhattan since version 2.XX.  Are there the WTC buildings in Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.00 (1.05) as well? I can find JFK, but any buildings at Manhattan. Could somebody confirm that? The WTC buildings are not included in MSFS 1.xx.

8.

I believed, that subLOGIC Flight Simulator II for Atari (8 bit) has only the black/white instrument panel. There are lots of the same B/W screenshots worldwide on the Internet. So, how is it possible, that the Flight Simulator on the picture has the instruments in color?

I found out, that subLOGIC Flight Simulator II for Atari (8bit) was able to depict the instrument panel in colors by using a right monitor with the composite artifact colors mode. I even found the right emulator setup to get the same image (on the left).
