InstallationInstallation was a breeze. The full install only took 343 meg of disk space, which was modest by 1999 standards The Patch installation wasn't such a breeze.
Clicking on the Update Product button opened my internet connection and activated the Novalogic Update wizard. This downloaded a newer version of itself from the Novalogic server, which took a minute, then it checked for the latest patch and downloaded that, which took about 90 minutes at 3.0 k per second... it's a 13 Meg file. (That was with a 38K modem and a pretty good connection.)
This system makes updating painless and I dare say much less intimidating for the less 'computer literate' users than having to find a website and locate the patch.
Of course Murphy's Law applied as usual and the connection dropped out with a "reset by server" message. Ok, try again!
Murphy wasn't done with me yet.
Now the sim wouldn't start at all!....Grrrrrrrr.
I guess it had 1/2 installed the update.
So off to www.novalogic.com then F-22 Lightning 3, then updates.
