Thanks B_C!

I have not laid eyes on my original disks of either of those since the last move. I don't even know if they'd be any good or if they'd be all bit-rotted.

I have F-19 and F-117A both, though they're nearly impossible to control without a keyboard overlay. I remember using that a LOT back in the day when those games came out.

I think most of those overlays are out there in the wildz of the webz for to download & print. Use some sturdy card stock sheets, Scotch tape (from the Scotch Tape store at the mall), and an exacto knife and you'll be flying like an 8-bit Top Gun in no time.

 Totally forgot about the Microprose keyboard overlays !!! Very helpful back in my Commodore 64 days.

^Yep, remember them well, and, as you say, very useful.
