Taught my kids to understand the basics of how to structure ones life with this game - seriously. And it worked :-).

With all hardest goals of 400 pts. best I could do was winning within 30 weeks. Could not do any faster than that.
Jobs sequence as follow: Clerk@Monolith then Check@Black then Butcher (requires Trade), AssistMgr (requires Junior), Manager (requires BusinessAdm) then GM@Factory after that buy Atlas, Dict, Encyclo, Computer then complete all Education
You don't have to be GM at the factory to get full career points. I've won as Machinist (3rd from the top at the factory).
In reply to questions, some observations I made ...
Buying all 4 books reduces the length of a degree by 1. A computer does the same.
Relaxing gives more happiness when you have more stuff. Baseball tickets, lottery wins, and buying Astro Chicken when you already have groceries also give happiness. The biggest boost in happiness comes from finishing degrees.

Happiness is hard to gauge. It includes buying things (tv, stereo). Also relax is a part of it. Although I won have only relaxed like 5 clicks the whole game. Maybe buying theatre and baseball tickets helps also.

Education goal is obviously reached by finishing all the degrees. Though i don't know how the computer or reference books help? Career is also pretty obvious. I'm guessing you must be either the GM at Factory or Investment Baker in order to win at highest level (multiple players can have same job at same time).
There is a menu hidden under the black line at the top, or just use f4 or f6 for goals and stats displays

Does anyone know the requirements for each level to win. I just played the hardest level and needed $10,000 before it declared me the winner. also is there any way to see your progress during the game?

Its an ok Game
Brings back memories. Thanks for having this up. It was near impossible to find anywhere!
Thank you for having a flash version of jones in the fast lane! I loved this game growing up and it is still so classic and fun to play. I've noticed that the economy tanks right away and rarely ever gets better in this version. I remember playing and making 45 dollars an hour as the gm at the factory and the highest I have seen it get after several games is in the low 20's. It doesn't affect playability very much, just an observation.
use sciv256.exe and start the game
