thanks thats ok, i can use the PC to emulate other machines. i do have the SNES version of Desert Strike, but its been ages since i played it. I think you can get Jungle Strike on the Playstation 1. I have Nucleur Strike on Playstation and that has strafe, i really like that game, you can control boats and tanks too. you can get some nice exterior camera views too.
I decided Elite 2 wasn't much good. lol. Why ever since the more powerful 3D machines shave come out has there been no new version of Elite? is shameful
i heard Elite 4 is going into production (after The Outsider is finished). I think they need to focus on making the combat fun (like the original) as a base before making huge galaxies.
