The graphics certainly have an "FSX-exy" look about them, hopefully Rick can confirm if genuine and we are supposed to be seeing them.

I have now gone from "highly excited" to positively looking for one of Barney's famous drool mops.

Nice graphics engine, in my opinion superb to KRS. Weather system also looks splendid. However detail in the surrounding scenery could be better. It feels somehow empty.

Other than that, I miss bigger screens.

That's what was on the DVD handed out to press. They are the real thing.

I note from the Press Kit which Tony posted that MSTS-II will be used via the Games for Windows Live! site - see http://www.gamesforwindows.com/en-US/Li ... tLive.aspx

This probably means it will be Vista only, or at least mean that without Vista you will not get a lot of the options.
