Yeah ... you're going to have to do a bit of work to get that running.

Don't get me wrong, SB Gold was a great sim. I spent many hours on it. But you can get a time-limited license for SB Pro PE for as little as US$9.50 (for one month).


I don't know if you've checked out Pro PE, but it's leaps and bounds beyond SB Gold. There are now [IIRC] over one hundred playable vehicles and the new, highly detailed terrain is awesome. Those are just two of many, many new features that make it well worth the price.
