Démo Lock On

Niko par Niko,  email  @nik0tine  
 
Une démo du très attendu Lock On : Modern Air Combat est apparue sur le net suite à sa publication dans un magazine allemand.

Attention : nous parlons ici d'une vraie simulation d'homme, avec un demi-millier de touches à mémoriser : les fans d'arcade peuvent d'ores et déjà passer leur chemin. La démo propose de passer aux commandes d'un Mig 29a ou d'un A10 pour deux missions rapides (lire la suite pour le descriptif des missions).

Merci à Lemerou pour l'info.

Note Importante : Si l'exécutable vous demande si vous souhaitez installer un patch pour Homeplanet, quittez l'installation, puis décompressez le lockOnDemo.exe avec winzip dans un autre répertoire. Lancez alors le setup.exe pour installer la démo.

A noter que les fans ont déjà trouvé un moyen de tweaker la démo : au programme, mission de nuit, fuel illimité et légère modification de la mission de l'A10. Merci à Check Six (fansite sur les simus de son état) pour l'info.

    A-10A Mission

    To fly A-10A mission, use your mouse to click on the FLY button underneath the picture of the A-10A on the right portion of the screen. After a loading period, you will begin the mission in the cockpit of the aircraft. To get started, press the S key to unpause the missions (missions in Lock On begin in a paused state).

    Ahead of you are a group of target vehicles that you can destroy. There is a group of moving trucks along a road and several armored vehicles in the field beyond it. Note that there is a ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" in this field and it is capable of shooting you down with anti-aircraft artillery fire.

    Once you have unpaused the game, press the 7 key to change the weapon system to air-to-ground mode. You can then press the D key to cycle weapons (bombs and rockets) or press the C key to toggle the GAU-8A 30mm cannon.

    To help defeat the "Shika" you may want to activate the jammer by pressing the E key and pressing the Q key to release chaff and flares.

    To navigate around the cockpit, you can use the KEYPAD ARROW keys to pan around the cockpit and you can use the KEYPAD / and KEYPAD * keys to zoom in and out of the cockpit. To recenter your view, you can press the KEYPAD 5 key. If you want to examine an external view of your aircraft, you can press the F2 key and if you want to cycle between external views of the ground vehicles you can repeatedly press the F7 key. To return to the cockpit, press the F1 key.

    If you wish to land, press the 1 key to activate navigation mode. Follow the waypoints and you will be brought to the nearest runway. When near the runway, press the G key to lower your landing gear and press SHIFT F to active full flaps. Once on the ground, you can hold down the W key to active wheel brakes.

    To exit the mission, press the ESC key.
