I know LB2 has been fixed to work with Win 10, what about LB1? And with 3Dfx emulation?

Well that didn't take long. I actually got Longbow Gold working, used the nGlide wrapper, and its working and flying 100%. The only issue I have right now is the opening movie, which is all garbled. All other videos work fine. Amazing this works on Win 10.

- installed nGlide 2.1
- installed Longbow GOLD through windows in Windows 95 compatibility mode.
- Applied the 3dfx patch, GOLDFX.exe (Windows 98 Compatibility)
-run LBwin in Windows 95 compatibility mode, check 640x480 as well.

It started up without a hitch. Its running slightly fast but shoudlnt be a problem to slow it down with an app.

The real kicker, nGlide comes with a config. I'm running Longbow 1 in 1920x1080... Although the cockpit looks stuck at its original rez. Everything is high rez.
