I have no idea what it really does, that is just a guess. I never used the demo. I had X plane 8, then I bought 9 outright.

It probably cuts you off in mid-flight though. That makes the most sense.

But yes, it does have the highest graphics of any program so far.
Aren't all video games a simulation?

I guess pacman is a simulation of running away from people while you eat food and then eat them.

third person really isn't, but you have a point. What typically makes it a 'game' is having set objectives.

The original cover to pacman showed a yellow man with a big head running through a city with ghosts chasing him.

Let me see if I can find it.



lol it was a castle.

and he is eating cookies.

I bet everyone was disappointed when they found out the graphics on the front of the box didn't match the in-game play.

Pac-Man on the Atari 2600 was horrible. I have it. But that cover is for the Atari computer, not the console which I also have.

Pacman for the atari computer was awesome. It worked flawlessly on my 400 and 800, never tested it on the 800XL.

How was it horrible on the 2600? I can't notice any differences between the one I have and the arcade version.

Seriously? Have you ever played Pac-Man on the 2600. Not an emulator. It's slow and looks different from the arcade game.
