WWII History

We at HiTech Creations were sitting around the other day thinking about one of our former competitors, namely Fighter Ace. As you may recall Fighter Ace was the product of Ketsujin Studios and it was incredibly popular during its run as a combat flight simulator. From 1998-2010 it provided countless hours of entertainment and thrills for flight sim players around the world.

Like our wildly successful Aces High, Fighter Ace players flew World War II fighter and bomber planes in combat against other players and virtual pilots, and like our game it had a free two-week trial available.

Like our game Fighter Ace offered different arenas to play in and different levels of competition, from beginners to advanced.

Like our game it had a very loyal following around the world and like our game players formed squadrons and leagues and ongoing competitions.

However, unlike Aces High, on August 1, 2010 Fighter Ace closed its online servers and said goodbye to its loyal customers. Ongoing monetary losses forced Ketsujin to discontinue Fighter Ace and the world of World War 2 Flight Simulators lost a mainstay.

So that left us wondering how we have remained at the top of this industry for so long and it came back to one point and one point only: from the very beginning we dedicated ourselves to making one flight sim game and only one, and we dedicated ourselves to making that game, Aces High, the best possible flight sim game on the market.

We are constantly improving and revising and tinkering with Aces High; we are listening to our gamers and relying heavily on our loyal band of volunteers and we are making note of what our competitors and doing right and what they are doing wrong.

And after all of that analysis and tinkering and fine-tuning we still sit at the top of the heap and take on all comers. Listen, this is a highly competitive business. The makers of Fighter Ace found that out; after thirteen years of success and loyal following they had to close their doors; after thirteen years of hanging in there against the best that Aces High could throw at them, they finally had to close their game and move on.

We aren’t ready to close our game and move on. We at HiTech Creations are planning on many more years of serving our playing public and providing the very best in entertainment. Strap on your helmets and fly the skies with Aces High.

Normally at this time we at HiTech Creations like to take you down Memory Lane and tell you about one of the World War II battles that we find interesting, and we are going to do that shortly with a quick summation of the Battle of Fort Capuzzo; we are also going to familiarize you with a few features on our Aces High website to help you navigate your way and learn more about this great combat flight simulator.

So let’s get started. Today’s battle occurred at Fort Capuzzo, a fort located in Italian Libya near the border with Egypt. Shortly after Italy declared war on Britain, the British Army captured Fort Capuzzo in early June, 1940. Why was this fort important? All locations in that area were important as both sides in the war sought to maintain control of the Mediterranean Sea.

Anyway, the fort was re-captured by the Italians a few days later in another attack. In December the Allies captured it again during Operation Compass, but on April12, 1941 Rommel re-captured it once again. Back to the Axis Powers it went during another attack only to be re-taken during Operation Crusader in November, 1941. During the Battle of Gazala the Axis took it again and the final control rested with the Allies following the Second Battle of El Alamein. Busy little place it was!

Now that the history lesson is over we thought we would take you on a brief tour of our Wiki site. What is AHWiki? It is our home for all information related to our flight sim game.

A word about the Special Event called “This Day In World War II:” these events use an actual battle for a theme but they are not meant to be a realistic re-enactment of the battle. For example, on the 25th we will take a look at the Battle of the Bulge but you really don’t even need any background on that battle. Just show up, read the rules and get ready for a great time dueling it out with other flight sim gamers from around the world.  Fly the skies of Aces High today!
