F18A Interceptor - Amiga 500 Amazing sim for the time, spent hours on this game, great atmosphere!
Gunship 2000 - CD32, great helicoptor sim, again great atmosphere, loads of missions, good times!
A-10 Cuba - PC, my first sim for Pc, ran incredibly smoothly, had good fun on missions and landings.

How did the console handle the button mapping on GS2k? I had it for my A600 but it was dog slow.

From what i remember it had no troubles with the joypad, probably would feel pretty slow to me now as games get faster, btw it was actually released on the PS1 as well a couple of years later, tried it on an emulator but preferred the original look and feel.

Gunship 2000 was actually ported to the Jaguar but never released, would have been interesting to see if it had been a straight port of the CD32 version or more like the PS1 incarnation.

Wonder if it would have been texture mapped? My preference would be not and having it run very nicely instead?
