F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter 2.0
DOS - 1991

Description of F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter 2.0
The more or less average sequel to F-19 Stealth Fighter. From MobyGames description: "take America's premiere stealth fighter out for a spin in several battle areas, including the Persian Gulf, Cuba, and even Vietnam. There are various scenarios for each, with air-to-air or ground missions, in "cold war" and full-scale war situations. Players can build up their pilot ranks through completed missions and medals." F-117A is a solid sim overall, but doesn't really stand out from the crowd. It's fun initially, but the missions soon become repetitive, and there is little variation in terrain or sky graphics to hold your attention. The night missions in particular are more tedious than fun, as you will have to strain your eyes to make out objects in the dark, radar notwithstanding.
Overall, a good attempt that could have been much better, given the pedigree of other MicroProse flight sim.

Running on Windows and I get stuck at the beginning?
Do you have a joystick (Y/N) ?
I can't type Y or N and move on?

It's an excellent game, perhaps I don't like the Cuban missions (I felt like "Hey Che Guevara, I've a poster of you in my room. You're my friend! I don't wanna bomb you!" ) I'm very simpatethics with Castro's Cuba, and the red guys and all, so as a "commie" south american I think that's the only bad thing in the game (I'm talking about the plot of the Cuban war theatre, not the game). The game is awesome. You have a great plane in very realistic misions to be 1991 and I impressed two girls and my 1st girlfriend, when I was a kid and talked about the stunning missions I did in the game :) Also, another error in game is to DON`T put night googles to fly. Well, in 1991 was a bit difficult, but man! I can't see my own hand, when I'm attacking the Hussein's palace! Night missions are suicide without night googles. I could bomb an hospital or an stadium instead a SAM radar! The Microprose guys should have put more effort on that.

Looking for assistance running this on a Mac OS x. Using DosBox via Boxer. I am able to get to the startup prompt asking if a joystick [Y/N] is being used, but it won't accept Y/N. I have to kill DosBox.
I also find that this version requires mounting a read-only floppy drive. This brings back memories. I don't think I am encountering the security protection as the previous comment regarding Neverlock alludes.

It wasn't a sequel to F-19, but a patched version that changed out the mesh data and some of the graphics for the Testors F-19 Stealth Fighter concept for those of the F-117 Nighthawk. Gameplay was otherwise identical, and those who bought F-19 could download a patch that converted the game. Most gamers, though, stuck with F-19 because the model kit design just looked k00l3r, and AvLeak swore up and down that their sources at NASA/Langley compared both designs in their wind tunnels, and the F-19 was a hell of a lot more stable design!
