Does anyone know if Magic Boy got an actual Windows version, or if this release was just the DOS version with a Windows installer?

The Last Express: The Windows and DOS versions of The Last Express seem almost identical at first glance. Mouse movement is nicer under Windows, and the game can be set to higher refresh rates under Windows than in DOS.
Links LS 1997: The Windows version of Links LS having issues on Windows 98.

The settlers (1), picked it up yesterday for a dollar, never tried it but it said windows 95/98.

I am pretty sure it is still just the DOS version running under Win9x. At best they packaged a Windows-based installer.

Yeah you are right it was the DOS version with 490 mb of demos and video clips. 😁
