Copying the link from the browser window didn't work, but using the "share"-link from Youtube worked. However, in both cases I get a warning about some .swf files that Chrome deem as dangerous.

North Atlantic '86 from SSI on my Apple IIe. I spent more time on that game than anything else other than one or two recent games that came to market post-retirement. It hit my sweet spot for scale, detail and control. Loved Kampfgruppe and Mech Brigade as well.

Just fyi. But if you go to archive.org.

There is the MS-Dos Library. It allows you to play those games online.

I've found a few mentioned here on the site.

One of the first wargames that got me hooked. Learned just a while back that Charles Moylan was one of the devs who now makes Combat Mission which is the game series I'm most hooked on now. So I have him to thank for a lot  :bd: :notworthy: O0 :smitten:

Flight Commander 2



Edit: Why doesn't it imbed the vid?

Believe it or not, I actually have this game in box, on 5 1/4 floppy. Somewhere...

I had to upgrade my Leading Edge 486 SX25 with a math coprocessor just to play Falcon 3 (or actually MiG-29, which I got first). I think I still have the F3 box w/ the manuals. It's probably right beside the FC2 box, where ever that is.  ???

I post this probably every couple of months, but I wish I still had my Their Finest Hour manual.

They’re pretty much in tatters today but I still have my Bards Tale 3 and Wasteland manuals, along with the BT3 wheel.

I also have my Master of Orion manual which is in surprisingly good condition.

I had a ton of old boxed games from the 80's and 90's sitting in my closet and one day my Pest Control guy asked me if I wanted to sell them. He had a nephew working on building computers and programs and said he was looking for stuff from the early days of computers. I told him what they were and how long I'd had them but he bought them anyway for $20. Not much but better than just throwing them out with the trash. I still felt like losing an old and very dear friend.

Darklands! Another awesome game from Micriprose



If ever there was a game that needs to be made modern it's Darklands. 14th Century German lore. Such a great setting.
