Operation Wolf was one of my childhood favorite arcade games. This game places you as a commando tearing through 6 different levels shooting *almost* everything that moves. I do not know why – but as a child I used to take great joy in shooting the few people that you were not supposed to shoot (i.e. nurses, civilians). This seemed to bother my father – which in turn spurred me on to ensure that whenever I was playing this game with him nearby I would never let a civilian cross the screen safely (which is probably far more than you really wanted to know about me – I am a nice person really ;-)).
To run Operation Wolf under Virtual PC – I actually had to run it under Windows 98 – as running it under DOS resulted in sporadic speed that made the game unplayable. I spent some time tweaking with the video options and could not decide which I liked better: VGA – provides all the appropriate fades and smooth scrolling, but has a bar of corrupt graphics on the right side of the screen. While MCGA has no graphical corruption – but does not scroll as smoothly.
