This is only a small bit of loading, it takes about 5 minutes to load. Then it is jut a loop of the intro music.
Once I work what I am supposed to be doing in the game I will make another video of that.

Wowza! I've always wondered about this game, now I get to see it in action. Thanks for the share :)
Petroffsky beamed. 'Now you may be certain of seeing me soon,' he declared. 'Au revoir. Remember, my rifle is at your command.'
'And my chocolate is at yours,' returned Biggles, smiling. 'Goodbye for now.'
