    Wing Commander III on the 3DO

    Wow! I never even realized - cool stuff! =) I'm sure it was amazing for TNG! Thanks for the explanation!

    Wing Commander III on the 3DO

    Got everything and was able to try this out tonight! I ended up getting a UK unit for the 3DO and didn't think about the UK power plug, so I ended up having to get a power converter as well, but well worth it! First, in regard to scanlines and my earlier question, yeah - definitely prefer it...

    Wing Commander III on the 3DO

    Good to know - thanks all. Seems like the consensus here and for 3DO in general is not to play interlaced, but I'll try a few different things with it and see what I prefer. Leaning towards not now. I have both games (SWC and III) and the Flightstick Pro in; now I just need the 3DO itself. =oP

    Is Wing Commander on the SNES worth picking up?

    While SNES is definitely a cool version given that it exists, after seeing the SegaCD version on All Wings Considered with full voice acting (and different voice acting than the Super Wing Commander game) and completely different music, I think it's my choice over this one.

    Wing Commander III on the 3DO

    Fair enough. Yeah...I'll have to see how they both look in person and decide. Any opinions certainly welcome, tho'!

    Wing Commander III on the 3DO

    WC3 3DO question. I'm going to playing on original hardware once I get my 3DO, hooked up via S-VIDEO to a XRGB-mini go-between device that should make it look good on a modern TV. I've been watching some of Bandit LOAF's playthrough on All Wings Considered (*waves* cool channel guys 'n gals!)...

    Wing Commander Dos 1 + 2 Joystick Problems

    This is an extremely old post, but just in case anyone else happens upon it, I think the reason is the joystick and sensors (POTS?) are starting to go. I had this happen in Wing Commander 2 with a CH Flightstick (the 2 button) and resolved it by replacing that stick. Recently, it's started to...

    Super Wing Commander 3DO

    I really like the CH sticks - I have a retro PC I use for the WC games and have a few backups just in case. The 3DO ones are pretty rare thes4e days, though! I do have a Thrustmaster for my modern PC and probably will go with a PS4 version when I play Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. At any rate, I got...

    Super Wing Commander 3DO

    I think I found the Flightstick Pro I was looking for. =) So hopefully I'll get to experience these on original hardware soon if all goes well.

    Super Wing Commander 3DO

    Thanks for the info. I've decided to pick up the games while they're available (that way I don't have to feel guilty if I do use ROMs), and we'll see if a Flightstick Pro for 3DO becomes available. That seems to be the hardest thing to find, so whether I want to invest in the console itself...

    Super Wing Commander 3DO

    Thanks for the heads up - the differences do look interesting. I was watching some clips of Super Wing Commander and I'm like...but...but...that's not the Tiger's Claw! =oP Wing 3 looks interesting flight wise. I'll miss the higher res and landing of the PC version...but then I can always...

    Super Wing Commander 3DO

    I've been really thinking of trying to get a 3DO and this (because it is SOoo different) and also the 3DO Wing Commander III version for the extra video and different gameplay. Let us know if it's worth it. =)

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    This game actually has me wanting to play Privateer. I played Privateer 2 and most of the Wing Commanders but aside from a little bit with a friend as a kid, I actually never did play much of it! I'm waiting for the PS4 release of RGO to really focus on the campaign (though I'm enjoying...

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    I might do a T.Flight HOTAS 4 (Thrustmaster) because I'm actually planning to play primarily on PS4 (saving the campaign for that - my console setup is just much nicer at this point both video and audio wise) and that one is compatible with both PC and PS4. (I bought a PC copy primarily to play...

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    Yeah, the bigger screen should definitely help. You could also pop by their Discord ( https://discord.gg/rU6nNTj ) and mention the color issues you're having in their tech support and feedback channel. I can't promise they'll put in an option, but the support so far has been really exceptional...

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    I can confirm it runs pretty well on older hardware. Running a 5 year old build (although it was a pretty good one at the time) and it runs at 1080P on high without an issue. =) Very well optimized IMO as a lot of new games chug on this system now. They've really been working to patch...

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    Yeah, I can see your point - it'd be nice if they added a Custom difficulty setting where you can pick and choose starting equipment level, autoaim, autofollow, and 3rd person toggles so people can mix and match. What I'd recommend for now on Sim is taking some really easy missions at first and...

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    From my understanding, the only real differences to difficulty settings are in fact the assists. I don't think, from what has been said, enemy AI or stats get any buffs regardless of difficulty. It's just Normal with all assists + better starting equipment, Veteran (same as normal, but worse...

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw!

    There's nothing saying you can't play with a stick! The stick controls are very good from my brief time testing it! BUT, after listening to some of the people on their Discord who are Wingnuts and have tried different methods swearing by controller as being preferred, I decided I'd play the...
