Pffft.. I did that back in 1985. But for the Libyan Government.. And all I really did was sell them a bunch of used pinball machine parts.

Who is Robert Francis (Outerra)?

Robert is our "walking booth" on various US conferences, presenting and talking to people. Here's his older post from one: http://www.outerra.com/forum/index.php?topic=183.msg1928#msg1928

Wow, all the way back in 2010 and only 2 posts. That why I didn't remember.

Is that demo using multi-monitor / multi-render to show cockpit and rear cockpit views simultaneously?

EDIT: Also "degraded visual environment conditions" sounds like an insult toward Outerra. It must be rectified!

I think those are two views of two different helis (Apache and Kiowa).

Nice of them ... still, i just cant understand,  why US allways makes theyr militarry developement open in such an extend, to make it possible to its enemies o know its fundamental work processes/basics giving them the advantage to react before its even finished ? ...

Excellent news to say the least. It looks like Outerra will get some much deserved recognition with this exposure.  This game engine has some serious potential and to have the US military taking notice should open up more than a few eyes.

And now remember, cameni... You are also responsible in all kills made by US Army... Because now they will train how to kill people with YOUR software. I am sure you know who is behind US Army and what are their real interests... Now you are the part of all this dirty thing... You just sold your soul for some money. Congratulations...

He had to grow up and become a man sooner or later.. Shame he won't get to pillage homes and businesses directly.
