JF2 and XP with DOSBox... help

"22 OCT 2005, 1451 HRS local Wow, what a website you have.

My first PC game was Jetfighter II, and I have been trying to use DOSBox with D-Fend (the front end program for DOSBox) and cannot get it to run.

Jetfighter II

Jetfighter II always bails out whenever I select Freeflight or a Mission. I have been successful at getting DosBox to run many older games such as: Conquest of the New World Star Trek TNG A Final Unity Strike Commander Wing Commander II However, JF2 has got me over a barrel. Can you share the settings you are using with DOSBox to get JF2 to run? Thank you."

I seem to remember getting to run under a normal Windows 98 DOS box.... but maybe my memory is fooling me!

Rebooting to DOS sometimes works for the older sims. The screenshoots in that exhibit were contributed by readers very early on in the Flight Sim Museum's history. Check out DOSBOX -
