Restored Gunship! resource.
 
Some most recent news about Gunship!:

Here is the link to a newly restored site that is fully committed to Gunship! and contains the most detailed information about the strength of this sim: mission building as well as all secrets of ground unit action.
It is truly revealing and "must-read" material for all Gunship! users, a game changer if given enough time and attention.

Thanks to the author and all who preserved and restored the site and the document.

Obviously, it seems that the ship for Gunship! has sailed...lol.
No interest, no comments despite 176 views.
If you can bear with my poor video making and editing skills perhaps this short clip of the custom meeting engagement mission video cut can show how rather complex and realistic is fighting in this 20 years old MPS game.

Hello, again Polak2!!!

I have interest in Gunship! My father-in-law gave me Gunship 2000 way back in the mid Ď90s and I recall playing it and learning all the keyboard commands. That older version reminded me a lot of M1 Tank Platoon 1989. I still have the Gunship 2000 disks, manual, overlay, box, everything.

I think Iím going to rediscover that title before I round up a copy of Gunship!


Quick question: Is Windows XP required to run Gunship! ? Iím seeing that in the internet but I donít know if theyíre referring to the Steam version.

Gunship! should be running on earlier to XP Win OS:

Gunship 2000 is quite different fame from Gunship!. Gameplaywise some say Gunship2000 was superior but I have never tried. On the other hand, I can assure you though that Gunship! is a deeper simulation than it shows initialy.

Outstanding!

I might have played a Gunship! demo years ago. Oh, I can see itís light years ahead of Gunship 2000. Got my sights on a copy of that title next!

Thank you!!

A little video of Gunship! random action:

Just watching the battle from behind the line of trees is big fun! Shooting tanks is a bonus.

Ok - I have a physical CD of Gunship! from Infogames.

I just canít change the waypoints!

Polak2 05-22-2022 02:48 AM

I cannot recommend enough spending some time on reading Gunship! secrets:

I have made pdf in case one wants it to Read it Alloud etc. while doing something else.

How do I use waypoints in Gunship?
Several ways, but you must get used to the fact that when you change from - let's say - WP 1 to WP 2, WP 1 disappears and WP 2 changes name to WP 1, and then all the rest also go down a number.

The easy way to change waypoints, (which requires the Patch), is to press shift w. That'll do the above and you can do it anytime, but normally of course when you pass WP 1.
This seems to be working fine "Shift W" when in the pilot (?) seat and next waypoints get deleted.

The original way is to use the Command Menu available via the TAB key. Pressing "TAB - 1 - 6 - 3 - TAB -TAB" is a "bit" more complicated, but using the TAB key also gives you other possibilities by showing you the details for every WP .You can also give other orders like "Hold Fire" or "Fire at will" and much more. You can look through it as it's rather self explaining.
I think this works too but I need more training here.

Quote:

Third option is to enter the overview Map Screen by pressing the n key, and then either move WP's by drag/drop, make a new WP (max 6) by a left click on the map, or delete one by a right click on the WP. Here on the right side of the screen you can also change the orders related to each WP (Nap of the Earth to Tactical for example), and make changes like altering a BP (battlepoint) to a LZ (Landing zone) etc. But that's another story.
This is buggy. Only works 100% in the lowest resolution set in CONFIGURATION 640x480. Maybe we could test to find if any other resolution works too or fix this bug.
