Description of EF 2000: Special Edition

Super EF2000 is the last game made by Digital Image Design (DID), one of the most venerable flight sim companies before it was bought out in 1997.

The game is the excellent graphical upgrade of DID's earlier EF2000 v2.0 for Windows 95, which puts you in the cockpit of the EuroFighter, one of the world's most sophisticated fighters. The excellent graphical details that DID is famous for are more breathtaking and smoother than ever in this underdog. The scenery does not magically bend and distort as you fly closer to it. Numerous details, such as diamond shock-waves from the afterburners as well as visual distortion from the heat, are accurately modelled in the game. You can even see the cockpit glow from the external view.

From the pilot's seat, you can zoom out and get a wide angle look at the instrument panel, HUD, and terrain. You can even see yourself reflected in the cockpit's canopy! Cloud tops are true to life and reveal a cobalt blue sky that darkens with altitude. Missiles or planes that strike the water make plumes of white mist, not repetitive and unrealistic orange explosions a la Wing Commander. Even the runway environment is accurate, as are the runway lights.

The game world is more dynamic and varied than previous DID games. Combat can take place at night, day, storm or clear. You have a small but comprehensive range of wingmen commands for combat, formation flying, tactical and recovery. Training missions have been well laid out and they are recommended (although I can never get the hang of in-flight refuelling). Tactics do make a difference in this game, as you have the choice to influence the outcome of the campaigns based on your performance.

In every respect, Super EF2000 is a must-have for every serious flight sim fan. It's a sadly forgotten underdog that is worthy of our Hall of Belated Fame, and will keep armchair pilots happy for months on end. Two thumbs up, way up!

It is such an astonishing game for such an old computing environment ! It is still playable today even with today's standards (I run it on a Windows 11 laptop with 8 Go RAM which is considerably more than enough).

The installation guidelines provided in the following comments have proven to be wise and adequate.

Thank you everybody.

Have fun.

Use Ef2000 Reloaded to play the game. Has a special version of DOSBOX that allows you to play the 3dfx version full screen at higher resolutions.

It's a shame the Win95 version doesn't support Glide/3DFX.
