Default 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 ‘90s 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 I’m going to rediscover that title before I round up a copy of Gunship!


Quick question: Is Windows XP required to run Gunship! ? I’m seeing that in the internet but I don’t know if they’re 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 it’s 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.

Hi all! I own the Steam version, but cannot make it work properly, it runs slow as hell, any idea?

Also IIRC It was possible to fly Cobras at one time, anyone remember how?

BTW Stratos,
I remember seeing you often on Helo/GS forum on SimHQ.

Have you heard from guys like Fng2K, Psyklik, KB, or WB?

I have not and that makes me a little sad as it would be really fun to relive GS! again with those old champs!
