    Spammer, please stop spamming in this thread! This is at least the second time and every time it gets bumped, I get my hopes up that there might have been more alpha invites/beta invites going out. But nope, this time it's a spam link by Great007 (which is WAY too good a username for a spammer).

    Still not got an invite. Not sour about it though. They're still putting out regular updates and it's still looking super pretty :)

    That’s strange, is you system a bit old or do you have a really slow internet connection or something?

    Maybe. It was decent at the time and it runs stuff like Gears 5, Forza Horizons 4 etc so I would've thought it'd at least run this in a playable fashion. Crackdown 3 is fine too and the multiplayer for that need lots of internet for CLOUD POWER.

    Probably just unlucky, it's not like they guarantee everyone will get in. But I better, or else... nothing. I'm powerless.

    Did you check your spam folder?

    I check my spam folder daily. Definitely no invite, but there is still at least 1 more alpha wave to go and a closed beta after that. Fingers crossed :) If not, I guess I'll just have to buy their stupid game.

    How will this actually work on an Xbox then ?

    The last time I did flight sims you got keyboard overlays. I still have a copy of F19 for the ST.

    Will it have some sort of horrendus menu system rather than press U for undercarriage, or do you actually have to navigate to the switch on screen and click it ?

    Keyboard support?

    In the same way as Forza will happily control the brakes for you (and even the steering) it’s not hard to see how a lot of that could be automated. There’s nothing intrinsically more immersive about pressing U for undercarriage versus the game knowing that you’re low and slow and doing it for you.

    Does pressing U for undercarriage work across the internet?

    It's got kinect support, just spread your arms, tilt left and right for steering and flap to go faster. A bit like Eagle Flight.

    Or to give it its full name: Eagle Flight - The Bestest VR Game Ever!

    Ok. I should’ve qualified that with “unless you’re easily pleased”. ;)

    There’s a good chance they’ll implement a context sensitive button that toggles whatever you point the camera at with the right stick. For all you “if I don’t press the button it’s not real” players.

    B button toggles Wing x feed transfer pump between ISOL AUTO and OPEN when XFR is in manual mode on the A330. Left trigger adjusts the wipers.

    To fuck the flight attendant after you land, you simply move the right thumbstick in a perfect circle thrice. Pull back on the yoke while doing this to enable condom mode

    Eagle flight isn't the same problem, because all you need is to flap your arms like a mad man to go higher and "E" to lay egg.

    Anyway, I guess I will just have to wait and see.

    WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT SPAMMING! I'm guessing you're the same guy because your name ends with 007 again. I'm not even asking you not to spam at all, just stay out of this thread with it. I don't even want alpha/beta info any more, just not spam. Why this thread? Why this one specific thread? What keywords lead you here to spam?

    Please leave. Get in one of the nice pretty aircraft from this game and fly to an island with no internet. A place so obscure that whatever magical technology generates the game world doesn't have enough mapping data to re-create it accurately.

    It was probably the high quality of the discussion by intelligent participants that triggered it.

    There can't be many threads that discuss undercarriages, eagles and copulating with flight attendants.
