  Med+Evac & Coastal Heroes
Both these programs are Helicopter simulators by Global Star Soft Ware.

They are rated for Windows 98/Me and XP and use Direct X 8.1 (8.2 is current with Combat Flight Simulator). They also only require a 32 meg 3D Accelerated graphics card.

They both have good, well written and extensive manuals. The scenarios look complex and very realistic and I would like to evaluate them further.

The simulators installed easily but have severe graphic problems with my ATI 8500 Radeon video card. I even tried the newest drivers to no avail. The “choppers” show up well as does the surrounding countryside but the rotors, buildings and soldiers “pop” up here and there then disappear.

I looked at their homepage and there weren’t any updates available. I then contacted their tech support via email and got a “generated” response saying that they would get back to me within 72 hours. That was over 1 ½ weeks ago. I even emailed them again hoping for some assistance – no response yet.

I think these simulators have a great potential but until their tech support releases an update etc. I would stay away from them.

I rate them a 5 out of a 10.
