Xavier JehlHi, my name is Xavier Jehl, I’m 32 years old and I live in France. I’m married and I have a lovely daughter. I’m a pilot on a DR400 and C172. I joined the SSM2007 team of about 6 month prior to the initial release.

My story with the “Boss” of Space Shuttle Mission 2007 is a bit “unique”. I was THE fan of the old former game : Shuttle, the space flight Simulator from Virgin game.

I finished this game on Atari, Amiga and PC! I still have the intact original box version at home and the A3 poster included in the box adorns the wall of my office ! So… When I heard about the “next” version I was totally crazy… I used my “talent” search and finally found the still under construction’s website and forum of Space Shuttle Mission 2007… Necessarily, I joined the “closed forum”… But a bit too earlier… The Boss almost kill me by email and he asked me who I am ?… You know the next …
After a long long conversation, I finally joined the team. Initially I was a beta-tester. As such my first task was to test and retest the game , helping the developers to chase the bugs and make sure everything “ticks” which of course required to test all the missions again and again. I had a lot of conversation with Development team regarding my 2D designer’s skills (this is my real life  job and by the way I worked with teams like Aerosoft, France VFR…). And I was asked to make the 2D art for the User Interface, which includes the background picture of the main screen and some other views like the Users Achievements screen.
Again, Like I did on SSM1, I’ll try to do something better on the upcoming SSMS2 ! And hope you guys will like it !

    Greetings SSM team !

    I have sent an email on the space-shuttle-mission-info address, but due to
    not receiving a reply yet, I will copy the content of the message here, in
    hope of someone reading and answering. Thank you !

    I am a space exploration freak who enjoys playing your wonderful game very much. I will skip the compliments this time, I am sure you have heard it all enough times already from others 😉 I
    am writing to you because I have an issue with accessing the community. I
    have bought an original boxed copy of the game and entered the information
    in the register window ( months ago ) and still haven’t received any
    confirmation email, username-password for accessing the forums and so. I
    really hope we can have this solved, as I have a whole lot of questions
    about the game ( in-game things as well as technical ).

    Thank you very much, and keep up the good work, you have my support 365d/y !
