Default Conquests of the Longbow

Hey... I was wondering how to 'install' the patch for Longbow, is it just a case of putting the two new files in the directory?

Also, how do I run the game? Probably in other words, what's the difference between Robin2.bat and Robin3.bat?

Yeah, for the patch, just overwrite the two files in question.

I don't know about Robin2.bat and Robin3.bat. I just have Robin.bat. (I had the game already, so I didn't download.) Why don't you look at them and see if they are different?

You can also just run sierra.exe (IIRC... or is it scidhuv.exe?).

If you use Dosbox the animations are 10 times slower than they should be...

...which is why dosbox allows you to alter cpu cycles and frameskipping.
