Not really, you have to understand that my SWOTL days are long gone, so it's all from memory.
I really don't intend to reinstall SWOTL, it's really game over for me, that one.
And I have the full original game, so it's even doubtfull that the mods that work flawless on my game will work on your version. -(I have the floppies Happy )-

Best thing you can do is google to find the old forum archives and read those.
The old SWOTL forums are dead, but still archived and findable.

Don't remember what links I pm'd you, was this one included?

Pretty good readings there about SWOTL. (old stuff of course :/ )

Long time no see guys. I am only reviving this old topic for closure and archiving, assuming that you stay alive and kicking for a while. I got the game to run without bugs and with a smooth frame rate and everything. The computer it was on crashed and the hard drive was put into another computer, the game and it's method of being run was lost. I eventually found the game and put it once again on the my main hard drive along with dos box. I couldn't figure out how the game worked, and which one was a copy and which one was a failure of a mod project; so I downloaded a copy of the game. This is completely legal because I have the game both on floppy and cd along with all expansion packs. I finally got the game to run once again thanks to a guide I found on Glen's guides, which I will not link to because it has a d/l link for the game on it. That version is the original version with the code wheel still in tact. If you want to get the code wheel, you can buy one (like I did) off ebay or you can google it.

You will need: Dos Box, Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe files from either the CD or from the internet (Which is ONLY LEGAL if you have BOUGHT the game in floppy form or CD form)

TO GET A FRESH COPY TO WORK WITHOUT HAVING THE DISK IN THE DRIVE:
1 Put the cd into your cd reader on your pc.
2 The disk should be "disk drive letter":\LUCAS\SWOTL as the disk hierarchy.
3 Go to the top level of your cd (you should just see LUCAS or Lucas folder)
4 Click the Lucas/LUCAS folder and press ctrl+c or right click and click copy
5 Open My Computer and click the C drive/ your computer's main disk drive.
6 Once there just press ctrl+v to paste it in or right click and click paste.
7 Open Dos Box (latest version)
8 Bump up the cpu cycles to 5500 (press alt+f12?)
9 Type (without quotes) "mount c c:\lucas\swotl" hit enter
10 Type "c:" hit enter
11 Type "sw" hit enter.
At this point the game will start up and show a demo.
Press Space to get the the joystick calibration screen.
Follow the on-screen instructions. If you have downloded it from the glenns guides link then now you will have to put in the code wheel. Just follow the instructions to get the correct word. If you bought the CD then you do not have to worry about this.

Here is a guide of what buttons do what in the game:

@mods: feel free to take out the guide reference if you feel that it could lead people to get the game for free. I am only writing this to help people solve their issue with the game that I was having. I do not condone pirating of games and am not responsible for anything.

CTRL+F12

Point 5-9
Best read the tutorials if you're on Vista-Win7 , for most that path will not work.

You can get them from :
or your own MsDos files
or your W95/98 - windows\command\ dir
or from one of the many FreeDos sites:

http://help.fdos.org/en/hhstndrd/base/join.htm#file
http://www.freedos.org/software/?prog=append
http://www.freedos.org/software/?prog=swsubst
A nice collection:

...... etcetera.
