    Pre-crash, someone posted either in an AC thread or a desktop thread a high resolution image of the AC world map in computer graphic style that you get to see in the background of AC5's briefings. Would anyone happen to have that still kicking about?

    In the second Round Table mission, the one near the end. Was I the only thinking "Needs More cowbell"?

    Well, I wasn't but now you've put that thought in my head.

    My trick for manipulating my ace guage at the beginning of the game is to do the first mission, shift my guage, save, then to an SP new game.

    It retains the shift you just made, so you can keep moving it until you're ready for the next mission.

    I really like the Assault Records, it's pretty cool reading what these pilots do, like the one that ends up working on Stonehenge or the one that moves and opens a shop in San Salvacion.

    What I don't like is the cutting of some planes from AC5, but I'll live with it.

    Well technically didn't some of these planes not even exist in 1995?

    Err, besides the concept stuff obviously.

    Yeah, the F-22 and the F-35 obviously, and I think the Su-37 wasn't the Su-37 yet(no thrust vectoring), and the Su-32 wasn't either, I think they were both shown in 1997.

    Hold L2 and R2 for "Autopilot," which levels your plane.

    Just unlocked the [spoiler:cacd2b3c91]Falken and Morgan. The Falken rocks the Morgan's face pretty hard. Carries more ordinance, including double the laser blasts that last longer, and seem to take targets out quicker. It also has a fucking awesome cockpit.[/spoiler:cacd2b3c91]

    I've got a book on my bookshelf of Millitary Aircraft, and it's from 1995-1996, and it hasthe F-22 listed with a great amount of detail, so.... I think you're wrong on that one.

    so I finally bought a PS2 as a reward for finishing the semester, and the first game I bought was AC5. I've wanted to play this for so long, but I've hesitated since I didn't want to buy a 2nd console (first is xbox..soon to be a 360)

    I'm loving the game, I'm curious as to what some of the slang does mean...for example shack on the target. That reminds me. I know the phrase "five by five" means everything is OK...but is there an origin to what five by five means or is it just something made up for Aliens

    Five by Five is actually an old radio term, meaning everything is 'loud and clear.'

    Shack on the Target? I think AC made it up. ;) If I had to guess, a confirmed missile hit without a kill.

    The inclusion of so many historical American and Russian fighter jets kind of makes me wish they'd drop this whole fantasy universe and just go full out with a Cold-War era Earth Ace Combat.

    Eh, it allows them to take liberties with history without actually taking liberties with history.

    I have alot more fun when I can believe the countries are actually at war, than if its some conflict in the past that I know never happened.

    The F-22 is not exactly the same as the YF-22.check it
    Either way I'm glad the F-22 is in the game.

    As a side note. I'm not pleased with AC5's experience system. It moves far too slowly for me to get all of the planes in a reasonable timeframe.

    I'm hoping AC4 doesn't have any artificial roadblock BS to deal with, since I'm looking to pick it up.

    ok, this may or may not have been answered already, but what the hell are those little icons under the plane type? Like, first it'll be a bunch of minus signs or something, then they all turn into plus signs, and then diamonds. I'm confused as to their significance.

    That shows the number of kills racked up with that craft.

    Get enough kills and the icons will turn into Pac-Man and ghosts!
