I have a confession to make: I have a new crush!

http://dreamflightadventures.com/dfa-2-0-pre-release-testing/ is the open beta for Dream Flight Adventures 2.0, a bridge simulator targeting educational audiences (ages 8 thru high school). 

It's a very different beast than Artemis. If you've been wanting to have a more educational spin to your spaceship bridge missions, or do some heavy RPG game-mastering, Dream Flight Adventures is worth a look.

Just had our first home LAN party with DFA: I'm working on an after-action report. The newbie player response was very good, so much so that I'm seriously considering using DFA for my daughter's upcoming birthday party, in addition to Artemis!

Looks sharp! Curious to see what it looks like in action.

Heh. Now I need to convince Thom that we need a "Technobabble Filter" slider in Artemis.

Wow, this looks great. If I had kids in elementary school I would totally ask their teachers to get this set up. Most class rooms use tablets instead of books.

I was going to post more about DFA, but thought it might be more appropriate to post on my bridge site rather than commandeering a thread!

See https://www.ltebridge.com/dream-flight-adventures-first-look/ for my LENGTHY wall of text!

Quoting:

"With no apologies, DFA targets a different market: it’s an education-focused RPG storytelling engine wrapped in a sleek starship skin. An RPG Game Master aka Flight Director leads crews into an immersive, thought-provoking storyline using a variety of real-time tools and has 100% control over the entire simulation."

"The main viewscreen graphics got “Ooo” and “Aah!” responses from our test crew. Sample pre-built starfield backdrops, our solar system, an animated warp star field, and rocky terrain suitable for planetary “landings” are all included in the base package."

Thats a great review. I look forward to trying it out, especially since it has a built in GM screen.

I read the review. Thanks for that. It answered a lot of questions. I might actually get this game downloaded and invite some kids and their parents over to play.

Thanks for the link, I read the review and just thought: "This is it, the next sci-fi birthday party will be DFA"!

I downloaded the zip and installed the software and startet the viewscreen.

Aaaaand that's all. It starts and just displays the code XX-XX-XX-XX - there is no X to enter at the stations. Does anybody can help me?

Any mistakes you can find, you can keep and with the spelling mistakes you can cook you an alphabet soup.

It sounds like you're following the instructions section on the download page just fine.

I have found that the main Viewscreen does not always trigger the Windows 10 prompt to allow firewall access. You might need to manually fiddle with the firewall on the Viewscreen PC.

Also, I've seen on computers with Ethernet, WiFi, and VPN adapters, sometimes the Viewscreen grabs the wrong network connection. I had to disable all other network adapters to make sure it behaves.

And finally: In general if your network is working for Artemis, it should work for DFA.

The developer is quite active in Discord: https://discord.gg/TksNHCh gets you there. @AdmiralStarblaze is his handle.
