It was a long time coming, but finally I'm diving into this great classic flight sim again.

Man oh man! This sim definitely brings back very, very fond memories and warm nostalgic fuzzies. Its amazing what your mind immediately remembers and picks up seeing these videos again. I would love to play the Longbow series again but I'm not sure how it would be done now. Thanks damson for the videos. I remember that instructor voice so well. cheers

Jane's Longbow works fine on DOSBox, I added my tweaks I did in dosbox.conf file in 1st video description. If you know how to mount disk drives and CD's in DOSBox and you remember how to install DOS games (install procedure showcased at the start of first vid) then you shouldn't have much trouble getting it to run.

Go for it baltika, it's still great fun! If you need any help ask away.

In the meantime here's the last training mission before the real fighting begins.

I still play this awesomeness on a regular basis. I can't get it to save any screenshots though!

If you're using DOSBox, the default binding for grabbing a screenshot is CTRL-F5 (you can remap that in the mapper accessible through CTRL-F1) - screenshots should be saved in

C:\Users\<YOUR USER NAME>\AppData\Local\DOSBox\capture

Thank-you sir! I'm playing off the disks but, I might try a DosBox install! Cool!
