I do indeed remember it - I still have the blisters!

And that was followed by Koronis Rift IIRC.
Any of you guys remember this?

Damn- procedural generated fractal mountains!? That's pretty hard-core for an 8-bit game from 1985!

I'm not sure if you guys would be into this. But might as well link it in the appropriate sub forum.

This guy is good but I think even he is a little confused about things. Especially when it comes to the way the original game was presented to customers as one game and later split into two products that are still components of each other really.
Apparently the movie 303 Squadron Battle for England\Hurricane just got released to a limited number of cinemas in England. I would love to see it. Here is hoping that it is less drama and more flying than the older movie about Czechs called "a Dark Blue World".
I would love to see it regardless. There is also a documentary released recently at select cinemas in England called Spitfire I hope to see at some point.

As many of you know, management has closed the RPFW forum until further notice. Please do not treat the Current Events forum as an alternative. The mods will be reviewing posts in this forum very closely. Inflammatory, heated, or divisive political or religious comments should be avoided.

That is not what I was told.  I was told that if I had to use the tool, which I have had to use 6-8 times because the license was stuck somewhere, I had to get a new activation because all of mine were used up.

I had a usb trigger an activation on CMBN.  There was a forum post in the early CMBN days of a usb headsey triggering an activation.  I had a RAM upgrade trigger an activation.  In all of these Steve admitted that the licensing system was overly sensitive.  New video cards also had triggered activations as well.  Steve explained it at the time that the licensing system took a snap shot of the systems config.  Any significant changes would trigger an activation.  Adding a piece of hardware in certain ways would trigger off the system.  For 5-6 years they were tweaking the DRM for all the potential licensing issues.  Only in the last couple of years has it seemed to have stabilized.  Bu, as I said, those were activations that were gone, never to return.

Again, just go through the forums around 2010 and see all the issues people had.

A big misconception is being repeated by RyanE. What he is referring to is when you need to use a "tool" to reset the license state of the game when there has been a major change with a computer.....using the tool [does not/i] luse/burn an activation.
