-Someone Had leaked a few of the Thirdwire Gen 1 Max Files at one point, so that didnt help TK’s Trust issues
-Strategy First, the Original Publisher of SFP1, Released Multiple Alpha Builds as Gold Products in the U.S. w/o TW’s Permission,
I bought My Copy from Electronics Boutique in a Full Box at $49.99, and when I Installed Played and Posted Screenshots etc, TK asked how I got a Copy, lol. I told him they were on Shelves at EB Games and Babbages here already.
I was one of the First people to work on Mods (helped w/ A-1, P-51, Scorpion etc etc),
Beta tester all teh way up til TW Disbanded all external testers (before SF2 NA)).
I stayed w/ SF2 as long as I could, but w/ it being dead code (no patches or support) and wanting to move up to Full Fidelity Simulations Again (Previously Spent Thousands on FS2002/2004 and FSX, and then Sold it all off), I decided to Avoid FSX this time around and goto DCS A-10C, right when DCSW was in testing.
