To each his own, but what's the point of running 320x200 game on high resolution LCD screen in Windows environment?

I much prefer to run it in its original environment on a real 14" CRT monitor, preferably on Amiga. It makes a ton of difference!

PS> This was probably the best 688 sim before Fast Attack in 1996.

I've added Silent Service 2 and Wolfpack Tonight! 100% of these run fine in full-screen mode!

D-Fend Reloaded is a good Dosbox frontend where you can make a lot of adjustments for grafics (also screen size adjustments), sounds, game speed, mouse control tweaks etc. I like it for all DOS games. I have SS and Red Storm Rising installed together with other DOS games I like.
It's often necessary to run the 'setup.exe' that comes with the game, and D-Fend just allows you to run and set them up with a right mouse click. Other than that it's easy to manage all your games in one interface. A must-have for Dos games I think.
And the games all work like with the original equipment, I would say: even better...
