After trolling - and being trolled - in the Community Hall these last few days and things getting more than a little heated, I took a step back and realized why I actually joined this forum... for sims!

It's pretty quiet on the Jane's Longbow front nowadays, but in an effort to keep my hand in and try and prove I'm still worth a damn, I came up with an idea that might interest some of you.

I know you'll all likely have the various programs and bits you need to get LB1/LB2 installed and running but would any of you be interested in me putting a CD together with all the related programs on, as well as LB2 custom missions, mods, etc?

It would mainly be all the content off my website, but other things could be added such as my LB2 Vista/7 Fix as not everyone may be able to download that (at over 200Mb), and perhaps things like +G's LB2 install guide made available for offline viewing?

Any suggestions or additions for a CD would be appreciated. A small charge would be set so as to just cover each CD-R and shipping costs.

Good idea.

I'd be happy just having a site with all of it together with a guaranteed install. LOL
Right now their are a little too spread out and I've lost track of some sites. Your site is great
but it still takes to long to make sure I have everthing.

Well even if you had a CD with everything on you'd still be lost, as unless I compiled a detailed, intuitive list of all the contents with direct links to the files on the CD - it would just seem like a minefield of files and folders.

If you have LB2 and would like to try and get it installed an running, your best bet would simply be to come to me personally (PM or e-mail) or start a new post in these forums and let others chip-in as well.

Since I made my Windows Vista/7 Fix it's actually a pretty simple process to install the game. Getting it to run is not much of a problem either, nowadays it's just keeping it running without crashes that's the big issue.

And by the way, MY site has everything! You don't need to consult third-party sites. But as you say, even my site has become a maze of stuff that, to the casual user, may seem mind-boggling.
