The Portalis/InfiniteReality/Onyx2 Demo CD set includes an interactive demo of the Apex F14 simulator from Paradigm Simulation:

In the day Paradigm Simulation Inc created a number of simulators that ran on SGI hardware. Here's a brief quote from the Paradigm Wiki:
The Paradigm Entertainment Wiki wrote:Paradigm Simulation was founded in 1990 as a company based in Addison, Texas. It initially focused on creating commercial products for graphics developers, including military training simulations for pilots and ship captains and a lengthy client list that included the United States Department of Defense, The Walt Disney Company, NASA, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and McDonnell Douglas. Paradigm acted as a proponent of 3D computer graphics and virtual reality in the mid-1990s with its applications including the IRIS GL-based VisionWorks and the Performer-based Vega, which were used on Silicon Graphics workstations. Project sales for the company were $7 million in 1995, up from $3.5 million in 1994. During that time, the company frequented the annual Consumer Electronics Show, SIGGRAPH, and Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) conferences with its 3D technological demonstrations.

Me neither. ;)

I found some interesting demos around like Macau(a demo of a drive through a city), and this space combat game and a tank simulator that looks like it takes place on some other planet. Also there's a labyrinth game(the board game with the steel ball and holes) on the old Octane hard drive.

I remember playing some of these demos on an Onyx1, I believe an RE2. This company did work with Paradigm so it may have been an internal demo CD, I remember it was burned and had a buttonfly interface allowing you to play from the CD or install.
It had Certain Impact, Egghead Shred, the Apex F14 sim (where you take off from NAS North Island in San Diego), and I think there was another sim that put you on a ship in San Francisco.

Does this ring a bell for anyone else?

Egghead and Shred are on the O2 demo disk, I know that.

Well my problem is solved, just scored a new Octane demos 1.3, which purportedly has Certain Impact. :D

There are a couple more on fleabay from Silicon Burn now. Octane 1.3 demos/Octane2 1.0 demos and Octane 1.3 demos standalone.

Actually never mind... everything else is there, there's even a reference to Certain Impact...


...but there is no Certain Impact. Nice, real nice. :|

Anyone who would know more about that...show me the way please.

Just a heads up for anyone trying to find Certain Impact. The Octane demo's 1.2 and 1.3 do not have it. The 1.2 documentation say's it's on there, but it's not. I don't know about 1.1. Would of been nice to know this myself, but now I am putting the word out, so no one else wastes time or money looking for it there. Don't worry about me I am now fixed up due to a convenient coincidence, but for those looking...

Beware.
