Run Disk1.exe
Run FINISH.bat
For Graphics, select max resolution and for video card, select option #0.
Everything else is explained by the installation program. A couple of file errors occur, but the game should run fine.

I try to start the game, and FAIL. Any ideas on what's wrong? The screen flashes, then returns to DOS BOX, showing this at top:
Microsoft Space Simulator (C) 1997 BAO Ltd.

Thanks in advance.

@What: Commenting about outdated graphics on a game from '94..... "Fail".

@wilbur0311 that is because it is a dos game, because of that you need to run it in a DOS BOX.

...This sim has a major place in computer history: it was the last program Micro$oft released that was a DOS-specific program. After this, everything M$ developed only ran on some form of Windows.

...There was an expansion set in the works when this came out that would add a Mercury-Atlas, a Soyuz booster, and one of the early Nova designs - probably the "Saturn 8" - with scenarios for each. The Atlas one was to be John Glenn's flight, which would have been very welcome. Alas, the sim sold poorly, and M$ employees were given stacks of the boxed set to give away just to get them out of the warehouse. Which is how I got my five copies, natch.

...Be advised: this is like Orbiter, in that it works on actual physics. So unless you know how orbital mechanics works, don't be surprised if you find docking to the space station a total bitch and a half. The manual for this is a must, and IIRC a PDF of it was posted online a couple of years ago. Google might help you find it, but I had no luck this time around. My Google-Fu failed me, much to my shame :( :(

I had this game in 1994 but only played it for a week before someone stole my 386 computer and software. They took all my software. All I had left was the manual I had with me to study. I keep the manual all time time and now I can use the simulator again. It's not a game. More like a study of astrophysics. Thanks.
