Hi,
My brother used to have an amiga 600 when I was like 12, 13 years old.
He had this game flashback, that I since wanted to play again. Now i found this site, and i'm really psyched about it!!!!
I already downloaded it, unzipped it, did some stuff with the .exe files, but my computer crashed on me, it was clear that I did it all wrong.
So how do I get started here? I hope someone helps me real fast, 'cause I really want to play this game again!

THANX!!!!
Oh yeah, in case it's important, I still use windows 98

White.

uhm if you mounted everything correctly
then you should remember that flashback is 9 letters and dos (and so dosbox) only supported 8 letters.
