    WC3 GOG Sound Stutters In FMV and Gameplay

    I think you said you had a newer system you were running the game off of. I don't know why it might make a difference but can you list your system specs and tell us a bit about how you're running it? Is it off of an SSD? You said it was working the other day. Were there any changes to your...

    WC3 GOG Sound Stutters In FMV and Gameplay

    If you have extra programs running at the same time it could just be getting bogged down. Otherwise, both setting cycles too low and too high can make the sound and video stutter. Usually it will be the cycles are set too low in DOSBox though. I don't remember what the GOG version is set too...

    Sit Back and Relive Standoff with Justice (October 25, 2021)

    Yeah, Pedro, who was one of the folks involved with Standoff IIRC is the main guy behind the WC4 remake project and I believe he has VR support baked in from the ground up.

    All the Dune References in Wing Commander (October 24, 2021)

    I'm kinda wondering if the pilgrim abilities weren't also inspired a bit by Dune (specifically the ability to plot jumps)

    It's a Paladin Poll (October 16, 2021)

    It looks more like a fancy sport coat or jacket of sorts than a Hawaiian shirt.

    Wing Commander 4 cutscene line

    The built in interlacing in WC4 is not designed to be viewed at any higher resolution than 640x480 (the video itself is pretty much half that resolution again. THere's no way to turn off that interlacing in the DOS version of WC4 and it ends up looking awful when scaled up since the scalers...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    Just wanted to mention that despite the odd resolution, it might be outputing 640x400 but was still intended to be displayed at a 4:3 ratio. That means that you should definitely capture the game's native output but then resize/rescale the image to 4:3 at the end of your upscale project or...

    Wing Commander Toolbox

    Just a quick follow up. I had managed to not realized I had copied the WC2 palette file to the folder with the VGA files... with that in mind I did some experimenting and I'm able to rename the Armada palette files to "WC2PAL" and the extractor will use that, but it still looks funky either...

    Wing Commander Toolbox

    Doing some research into the Armada files and so far the tool works great for cockpit stuff.. The parts I'm having trouble with are the VGA files within the gameflow directory. The files seem to be the exact same format as the WC2 *VGA files... it's primitive video format with all the animation...

    Check Out the Lobby Cards Produced for the US (August 6, 2021)

    On another note, the pilot ratings in the right of each card are interesting/Funny... Maniac's safety rating for example, or why is it important that 53 pilots have died under Angel's command.

    Check Out the Lobby Cards Produced for the US (August 6, 2021)

    Hunh.... Somehow I had never seen the back of these before. It's an interesting choice that it says the movie was both Written and Directed by Chris Roberts on the back. Chris wrote the original treatment that Droney used as a very loose framework to write his draft from. Chris also...

    WCIV Tech Demo for WCS Stand Alone

    Almost for sure a codec issue... make sure you have an AC3 decoder installed. Something like AC3Filter or another codec pack like K-lite should do the trick

    HD video packs - Tech Support

    Something is causing the videos to be stretched vertically... Like the videos are filling an actual 4:3 aspect virtual screen by increasing the video height. Just to clarify, the actual in-flight gameplay is not stretched or zoomed? Probably not really a thread that will lead anywhere but...

    WC Uprez Unity3d Doodle! (Heavy GIF Use, Mobile Users Beware!)

    In some ways the layout here reminds me a bit more of WC2 over WC1, but even WC2 had a lounge in the cutscenes, though I don't think you actually see the bartender in WC2
