Ok, then that begs the question, simulator, or game?

game. If i was to compare it to flight sim lets say... i would say flight sim is a HELL of alot more realistic to real flying  than this game is to ATC. Just my opinion tho I dont want to start a big deal about it, just my opinion.

No....thanks for the input NY, you won't find many good reviews on this 'game'.

May still get it to try, but wait for a sale or something.

Would love to have a somewhat realistic tower simulator. Complete with "give way" commands. I seem to remember ATC Simulator talking about it....even if it didn't have graphics at the start....either that or intergrade it with Flight Sim.

I still play the ol' "Tower" game. Close as we got at this point. Classic!

We're a patient lot, we'll get something good  (and cheap) someday I'm sure.

Sweed Chef, at this point I find the old BAO tower being way better than the new sim in regards to realistic aircraft behaviour, something that the new sim lacks big time. however, there is a bigger variety in commands in the new sim, and more airlines, but still, bao tower is better even though it's quite outdated.

Does this still work in XP? I haven't played that game in AGES! I'd love to try it again with what I know now compared to what I knew when I last played it some 7 years ago. Anybody know where to grab it?

it works in XP but there are some things you have to do to make it compatible, but you can google it and search for the instructions.

There is a 'newer' tower simulator that just came to north America on Nov. 19, 2008. It's called 'I am an Air Traffic Controller 3 - Tokyo Big Wing'. This tower simulator is completely different from the feelThere product and really delivers a great ATC experience. To find out more visit www.atc3support.com

It's on sale right now for Christmas.

Thanks for the info Mr Davis. I discovered the product last week, but there was one thing that was quite unclear to me - the impression I got is that the user works all the positions simultaneously, which leads me to the question, is it possible to be responsible for only ONE position at a time, also?

Other than that, judging by the screenshots and videos posted on youtube, this simulator looks really promising!

The graphics are not the greatest, and it needs work, but I applaud the effort as I like to see the aircraft instead of staring at a radar screen.

Where to get it:

http://www.scenery.org/atc_sims.htm


Getting it to work in Windows XP

1/ Install the program, then delete MSVCRT10.DLL and MSVCRT20.DLL from the Tower folder.

2/ Copy and paste WING32.dll from the Windows/system folder to the Windows/system32 folder.
