    I have a PB 12" Rev. A with maxed out RAM and a 17" widescreen external VGA display. My questions are as follows:

    1) is there a patch that allows one to run Falcon in OS X?

    2) if not, how does the game run in OS 9?

    3) in either case, how will it run on my PB?

    4) is there support for dual displays?

    5) what joystick do you recommend?

    6) is this a collosal waste of my time?

    Given that "Iraqi Freedom" will most likely never see the light of day, I need to get my flight sim fix. Any help is appreciated.

    1) No

    2) I've heard that it is playable

    3) If it runs in Classic at all, it should run perfectly on your computer

    4) I seriously doubt it, especially under Classic

    5) I've heard good things about the Logitech Freedon 2.4ghz cordless joystick.

    6) Maybe... :D Why are you so convinced that Iraqi Freedom won't be coming?

    1) Talk of but no.
    2) Yes - works fine, well as well as it ever did.
    3) Should do but may be the you are asking to much of the video card with the screen
    4) No, Mirroring only will work
    5) Any USB - I use Saitek’s Cyborg 3D USB
    6) No way, its all we Mac flight sim fans have.

    Iraqi Freedom is taking its time - bloody long time. If it evey does come out (some people have been beta testing) its only gona be a native version that runs in X with slighly better graphics. Nothing to right home about. The older versions of F/A-18 Hornet work in classic, a certain version also works via Game Ranger so you can get an online fix, but it does not work that well.

    I have considered (forgive me for my sins) buying a PC just to play Lock On - Modern Air Combat, check out some of the sample movies and you will see, ITS NOT FAIR!

    I resort to getting my fix by playing Falcon 4.0, A10 Cuba and x-plane all work well for me albeit on a G5 2.0!

    Any one else?
