    What do you HATE (or at least dislike) in each Wing Commander game?

    Same here, I thought this was a great final idea in an overall weak final section. Since the engine is just not made for capital ship combat, the whole Vesuvius-sections were very very boring. But first that confrontation with Seether and then another "duel" outside of the cockpit, that...

    WCS Cockpit ??

    To my knowledge, nobody ever worked on that while the game was in development, single player always the priority and pretty much everybody, including myself, was behind that.

    WCS Cockpit ??

    I do not think the multiplayer missions ever shipped with the game and I have no access to the SVN. But whipping something together for a test should be doable for everybody with a little bit of FRED knowledge. The missions designed by yours truely about half a life time ago where meant...

    WCS Cockpit ??

    No, the feature was never finished and was dropped from the release, especially after team members started to drop out. I do not recall the exact details since I left years before the eventual release (worked mostly on missions, including all the Multiplayer Maps) but there was a lot of...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    To the naysayers: Well, of course ODVS overdoes it greatly in many instances, especially with the fact that many of the lights "blink". But one cannot help but notice that the stark contrast certainly gives a few shots a very interesting, dare I say it, cinematic look. Seconds 11 to 14 for...

    German Kilrathi Saga Unofficial Fan Guide

    Looks great, if you pull it off, this will be a very nice contribution :)

    Is there an advantage to either of the versions of Wing Commander 3?

    There should not be any difference between all the digital releases available to date, they are all based on the DOS version of that game. There was a Win95 version (which I prefer due to the music improvements) called Kilrathi Saga but aside from pirating at least parts of said version, it is...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    I actually think, comedy aside, that this looks pretty cool in some shots.

    Do WC3 wingmen fire torpedoes?

    Maniac is indeed a bad choice, as you have already identified. Why not fix the obvious problem first and use a wingman or wingwoman that actually listens to "attack my target" 😆 ? Other than that, letting the first Vaktoth eat FULL GUNS and a liberal use of HS missiles to dispatch some quickly...

    Wing Commander - Improved GAMEDAT Files

    Where did this come from... this is great 👍 and it should be hosted here in the game's fan-patch category asap.

    WC4 Remake

    People like that will be be doom of us all, jumping head-first in the trap called platform economy because it is so convenient in the short-term. Yes, I am exaggerating :). But also yes, I think this is a massive problem. Disney, GamePass, Netflix, HBO and the bane-of-all-existence, Amazon, all...

    WC4 Remake

    I approve of this. I recently managed to talk another upscaling-person out of it. When upping low-res stuff, there is only so much than can be gained and while 4k sounds nice, it is often not worth it, considering the filesize. Do a really good 1080p, that is where its at.

    Pedro and myself have continued this elsewhere 😉. Back to Wing Commander.

    WC4 Remake

    You misunderstood me there, I just believe that we, as software developers as a whole, could do way better than C++, with Rust being a prime example of how to combine sensible programming contracts and language abstractions with performant compilation results and low-level access. As a lead...

    WC4 Remake

    Yes, you are right, that unfortunately scares me off 🙂. In my humble programmer's opinion, C++ is an outdated blight upon the world and the sooner professional software developers (like myself) stop using it, the sooner it will finally die. These things take time though and we a stuck with this...

    WC4 Remake

    Depends on the C#-task at hand, to be honest. Won't touch C++. PM me with the details 🙂

    Big Mac Attack (January 29, 2021)

    This was the thing that got me into WC (and System Shock), a present for my 11th birthday. Or 10th? A smooth, framerate-stable SWC still remains to be a dream of mine, no matter what real hardware or emulator or version (3do) I throw into the mix.

    WC3 Win95 Patch

    Much appreciated. Edit: Fuck me, this works splendid. Using the NoScanLinesExe with the ddraw.dll-hack and it is pretty much flawless. Replaying WC3 next :). Got frustrated in the late battles of Tie Fighter anyway. While the base game is utterly brilliant, the lack of any sensible...
