I just read the story on The Guardian.

The story says to press "ctrl+windows+a".
Don't believe it, it's "ctrl+alt+a".

I can't get it to work either.

me either, it's either a hoax or we need more info. Maybe you have to have MS flight simulator on your machine for it to work? What do I know?

Yes. So, since you won't be needing them, send me all your worldly goods.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good one. If you can still use the aircraft, then it is a great one.

MacOS: Cmd (Apple Key) + Ctrl + a

Arghh, 16 tries so far, and the farthest I've gotten is 6mb downloaded before it freezes/stops. I wannnaaa flyyyyyy!
09/02/2007 03:41:17 PM · #19
Nope - Not for me...
09/02/2007 03:43:52 PM · #20
remember - push forwards on stick, houses get bigger, pull back on stick, houses get smaller.

Up to try 36... WTF???
09/02/2007 04:00:50 PM · #23
Downloaded the 4.2 update and it works now. I can't figure out how to control the rudder yet. But I flew for about 10 minutes. Flight Simulator it is not. Very touchy. Maybe that's how the 16 flies when you don't know how to use the rudder. heheheh

Whimper... FORTY-TWO tries so far, best got .1mb away before it froze. Any ideas/suggestions? I've closed everything else, cleared everything, did a test download of something else, everything seems to be fine, but THIS won't work for me! :(
09/02/2007 04:21:06 PM · #25
downloaded fine for me, but even though you supposedly can use a mouse or keyboard shortcuts my plane won't take off. I'll have to try it with the joystick at home later.
