Could be a slightly different version. I swapped a working 8088 for a working
V2 and LR wouldn't run. Or even load.


I played it for a while on an original Compaq on my desk at lunch, until I
good enough to run out of lunch before I ran out of levels. Eventually the
Compaq was no longer useful for testing and it migrated elsewhere.
