I'm Bi-Plane Curious!

I just got Flying Corps Gold and found out that it will not run on Windows ME due to its MS-DOS hungry nature.

Now Iím thinking about getting Red Baron II, but the online descriptions of it that I could find donít specify its DOS reliability, only that the minimum requirements are Windows 95/98. Iím leery of making another non-returnable purchase that wonít run on my system.

Iím dying to play a good WWI sim, but Red Baron II is the most recently released one that I could find. The B&Mís in my area donít even stock the genre, so Iím restricted to online purchase.

Does anyone know whether or not Windows ME would support Red Baron II or if there is even a more contemporary WWI sim on the market? I would totally appreciate any info and Iíll even post a funny web puzzle in return!

I know nothing about those games, but I'm posting to give a little help.

Chances are that if it runs on 98, then it runs on ME (because it's really the same OS), but you never know for sure. Check the developers web site or run a quick search of DejaVu or epinions.com.

Also you can order on-line at EB and return games at the B&M store. EB has a software exchance policy. I think it's 10 days. So your purchase may not be wasted if you have to returnt he game.

Thanks mmconhea. It seems to be the safest route. I guess WWI aerial is a dead genre until the next Hollywood treatment. Your response is totally appreciated and hereís that puzzle I was holding as a bargaining chip:

(I did a search for this url going back six months and it didnít show. I hope it isnít old news or what not. Itís pretty clever. When you see the flaw in the picture youíll wonder why you didnít notice it immediately. Cheers.)
