Jim Leonard boldly stated: No, but you picked a good time to ask because I'm in the middle of capturing footage for www.demodvd.org and I just built a 386/40 out of donated parts -- and it has an SBPro in it. I'll search prior messages for what I'm supposed to be debugging :-) but if memory

Jim Leonard boldly stated: That explains exactly why it didn't work on your 286. Read on: 286 20MHz, and I admit I don't remember if I tried the game without turbo on. But still, the game's from 1991 and, IIRC, 386s were pretty common then. ..in America. In Europe in 1990, where and when
