Try searching. I could have sworn someone talked about this, although it was a few years ago.

PhukFace, I have the Dos version but that is a no go. Isnt there a windows version or Gold version? I miss that game about as much as I miss Gunship for the com 64.

It has been awhile since i tried the DOS but it didnt run well plus the speed of the mouse. The grahpics were smeared as I moved the mouse and was unplayable. I will have to look at for the gold edition.

Thanks
