Smile DarkStar88 - Lucasfilm - Battlehawks 1942

Review, boxscans, floppy images*, ring-bound manual scan...the works. Had this game back when I was a little-bitty sprout, found a copy with the whole shebang for $2 at a thrift store just today. :woot2:

This is a sweet DOS WW2 flight sim that Abandonia should be graced to have!

*the game includes both 3 1/2 and 5 1/4 size disks. I should be able to get one of our ancient 5 1/4 drives to work, and hopefully the floppies are still good.

You'll get nice pics of the whole thing. The 'manual' is not only a game manual but has so much factual content (all of it 100% accurate) it could also be considered a war-history/reference book/technical manual all in one. As a matter of fact, the historical content is mixed in so well with the game-related stuff it's almost impossible to say where one ends and the other begins! :weird:

Oh yes - and did I mention the foldout maps of the four sea battles...in full color?

I'll see if I can get my scanner working with one of my boxes. (had to rebuild them both quite recently)

Here we go. Note that these are quick-and-dirty scans; I don't know what the heck caused those funky slanted lines.

A scanned battlemap---



Boxshots---



And finally a two-page spread---

Thanks! Sorry about the massive size, forgot about that. And I'll see about those **** lines.

As to the rest of the stuff - how do I upload disk images and everything?

[APPROVED] I'll send you a PM with instructions about how to upload it on FTP.

Have you got some screenshots too?

Default problems...

Will get the screenshots up by end of today.

One of the 5 1/4 disks won't read, but thankfully the 3 1/2 copied without a hitch. Scanned the reference card and working on the manual now; I'll try to stitch all the copy-protection pics together as a single JPEG for convenience's sake.

Edit:

Stupid $#%& zonealarm blocking all the imagesharing sites ...here we go AT LAST.
