Amazing hack, corrects a major mistake most Ghostbusters media at the time made. Have no idea why poor Winston is always left out but this mod fixes that. Love that he’s added to the firehouse scenes so it feels like he was always there to begin with, my only problem is the icon when you select him there is none but it’s a tiny problem in an otherwise an amazing hack! You should definitely play it if you’re a big Ghostbusters fan, it’s way better than the NES version.

Version 1.0 Recommended - Yes
