Appendix B Updating F-19 Stealth Fighter
Though you probably haven't noticed them, there were a few bugs in the original version of F-19 Stealth Fighter and room for a little improvement. The original version was 435.01, and now an updated version numbered 435.03 has been released. Version 435.04 should follow soon—it will probably be the last update. It should be out by the time you read this. You can locate the version number of your software by looking on the copyright screen when the game first boots up.
Besides taking care of a few rarely noticed bugs and compatibility with certain clones, the improvements in this version are:
The inclusion of missions starting and ending on a Navy carrier at all game levels. Previously, you had to acquire a very high point total in order to qualify for carrier missions. You needed somewhere in the range of 70,000 total points and the missions were only offered in the Lybian scenario.
A low-altitude warning klaxon.
The ability to set the climb angle ladder so it's on at all times.
An update program has been set up as follows:
If your version is still under the 90-day warranty, you can return the original disks and have them updated free.
Otherwise you can send $10 and the original disks for updating. Or, if you still have the Request for Backup Copy Form in your box, you can send that in with $10 for a completely updated backup copy.
If you have other questions about getting the updated version you should call MicroProse Customer Service at (301) 771-1151.
