I have a Jane's Combat Flight Simulator series too...
Now, I'm sure you don't need to get 98 installed, as a friend and I had the sane problem, and solved it by playing around with the "properties" of the execution .... Try to make it run in compatibility version, or in 256 colors, and such... We played around with that and found it worked under XP after a few minutes...

It will be aweful if you go back after Lock-on. Old games were highly substituted with imagination.

Dunno. . .LockOn leaves me missing my old Jane's F-15 refueling sessions (non-scripted), clickable pits. . . and the general fun I used to have with that sim. I wouldn't trade LockOn for it. . .but that was a pretty good sim, despite it's age. I also have F-18 and Longbow Gold (though haven't tried to install them since moving to XP). I remember there with a few issues to contend with though, but it's been about 4 years since I've even looked at those sims.

I use to play Jane's F/18 Hornet it was the bomb me and a few friends played it on a LAN, I installed it a couple a months ago the graphics sucked, I didn't remember them being so bad.
Jane's needs to come out with some DX10 flight sims

Just curious, is it the one with the black stealth bomber (err, forget the number for the aircraft.. the 'single wing' design though) and it says USAF over it?

I think I have the exact same game.. lol
