SB gold was a true classic back in the day
But it does not compare with SB-PE.

If only I had the slightest idea what you're talking about.
Not, that we'd still officially render tech support for it. But who knows, if I remember the answer I'll be happy to share.

It seems from the first image that the z order is reversed on the vehicle exterior?

It doesn't matter what it compares to, a true classic is what it is.

To fix the inverted tanks when using DXWnd, enable expert mode in the options menu, right click on your SB shortcut in DXWnd and pick modify. In the Tweaks tab enable "ddraw:AllowSysMemoryOn3DDevices".

Trial and error combined with educated guesses. Note that the mission editor may fail with that tweak set. If you really want to run the original SB for whatever reason, I personally have had the most luck running it on Windows XP inside VirtualBox.

So buy some "classic" hardware to run it on.

If you want to relive those "great days" get yourself a '286 and DOS 6.0 or maybe Windows 3.1 and live in the past.

Don't complain when something designed and built what almost 20 years ago no longer runs on your 2018 computer and OS.

Oh yes and well done burning bridges with the only person who may have been able to help you.

You don't need anything else, when the current systems are capable... smash

Well if you could easily run it (i.e. "capable") then you should be able to get it to work shouldn't you?
