Front page sports football is where all football games should look back for inspiration.

Yeah, I did that, and now I have a shit-ton of files in Explorer and of course, it being the 21st century, there are no instructions or manuals or anything anywhere saying what to do next.  I used to play this game all the time back before the turn of the century, back when things like directions existed.  I would very much like to play it again, I'll even buy it again, but alas, the Internet doesn't want anyone to know how to use anything.  What do I do to get this game on my screen?  Please don't tell me I have to watch half a dozen YouTube videos on how to use my computer.  Is there some reason one can't just download a game and play it?  Help!

Good luck, if you don't know how to mount an iso file, run the instructions in the description of the file , in the link I gave, then you're just lazy

Hey all. Firstly, let me say a massive thank you for making the Front Page Sports experience available after all these years.

I cut my teeth on that game back in the day. My question is this:

I played the game for a solid 6-7 hours yesterday, with multiple shut offs, due to wife, eating, etc.

Now today, going to play the game, I get the "no cd" message. I t worked yesterday. Really baffled. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Edit: I decided to wipe and do a fresh install. Now, when I mount the ISO, it tells me that the drive is not valid> WTF?!? It installed fine yesterday. Had no windows updates since then, so I'm really confused now. Ah well, it was great to spend one day back in the glory of Football Sims.

Still playing this great game to this day but on a retro win98 pc. Going to try the provided files here and get it working on my "daily driver".

First question out of the gate is adjusting window size for a 2K monitor? How do the rest of you make the screen size work so you're not going blind trying to watch it?
