CU Amiga Magazine Announces Release of TFX
At last, TFX will be released! Not only will it be
released but it will only cost £5.99 (International prices will
differ) and come with the World's best Amiga
Magazine attached to it. Yes, it's true. TFX will be on the October CD-ROM
issue of CU Amiga Magazine.
There's no catch, no scam, the
Amiga's legendary unreleased flight sim can be yours soon.
As you'd expect, we've been bombarded by E-mail, letters and calls about
this. Here's a mini TFX FAQ which should answer most of your questions.
- Q. Will it be the full version?
A. Yes, as far as was completed. 100% working although slightly
buggy in places. It's a blinding game!
- Q. Will TFX be on the floppy disks as well?
A. At the moment, no. We are doing our best but don't hold your breath,
it's quite large.
- Q. What kind of machine does TFX need to run?
A. Any AGA Amiga with the 2MB of Fast RAM and a hard drive though
of course the faster the better. There are FPU and 68040 versions but it
does not run on the 68060 at this time, we're working on fixing this.
- Q. Why wasn't TFX released?
A. At the time an (fast) AGA Amiga with a hard drive and Fast RAM was
considered to be too small a market. These days this isn't a problem.
- Q. Why are CU Amiga giving TFX away?
A. Because we can, because we know you want it and because we're the Best
Amiga Magazine in the World.
- Q. Wont covermounting games harm the Amiga games industry?
A. Yes, if we did. However we wont be covermounting commercial Amiga
games. TFX the exception as it was never released. It does serve to prove what
can be done on today's Amigas.
TFX is the first of many spectacular events lined up for
CU Amiga in the near future. As usual you'll find the highest quality commercial application
software, unrivaled technical reviews, in-depth original features and much
TFX, and the considerable effort CU Amiga expended in order to bring it
fruition, demonstrates our continued commitment to the Amiga.
