    mace ? I never quite understood what a mace missile was good for. What does it actually do ? What is it's specific use ?

    New Standoff Scoreboards Rank Wingnuts Globally (January 8, 2006)

    It seems like I'm good at getting 5th places :-) Well, not bad for me I think, considering that I'm playing with a simple mouse on a laptop :-) Still I'm gonna try cranc up my score a little :-) Been away too long :-)

    New Standoff Scoreboards Rank Wingnuts Globally (January 8, 2006)

    I think that also has to do with mission 2 scores being below mission 1 scores, so you have to scroll to get to them. Mission 2 scores are just not as 'visible' as mission 1 scores, so it's more tempting to get a mission 1 high score. More ppl will notice a mission 1 high score :-) Maybe...

    Haha, there :-) Plugged my laptop in with a wire :-) Another sternenwind high score defeated :-) The high scores sure can be defeated, maj striker. It just takes some folks who have some spare time to practise :-) Actually I really hated flying the gladius for a long time. But in the...

    Man do I HATE my wireless network. That's the second time I have a topscore in the gladius, only to discover that my wireless connection has broken during play :((( Now I'm still on a shared first place

    I just replayed that mission :) You fly a scimitar with 30% damage to begin with. Succeeded after about 7 or 8 tries (which is pretty good, considering there are some missions that I tried at least 50 times before completing it) First wave of morrays (the ones that are already present when...

    Ah, I think I remember that one now. Was indeed not so simple, but if my memory serves me right, you had to do what the computer tells you : take out the gun turrets (take out missile turrets first !!) on the enemy cap ship. What ship are you flying ? The gratha ?

    I don't really recall what mission 6 was, but I don't recall any of the scramble missions being that hard. A general tip that helps complete missions : take it easy and let your wingmen also do some work. I noticed that it's most important to try to stay alive in these missions. Don't go out...

    How to fly raptor in standoff sim ?

    Hi again guys :-) I've read the topic here about the raptor (oh no, not another one complaining about fire arcs ??? No, don't worry :-) ) I really like the raptor back in wc1 and I sure was looking forward to fly it, but I can't seem to get it in the sim ? Can't get ferret either for...

    'wrong' comtalk :-)

    Hi Guys, After having struggled with UE for multiple days, I now completed standoff 1&2. Really great job. I truly enjoyed this renewed wing commander game experience, and I think you succeeded in equaling the former game's glory. Therefore I'd like to point a small glitch in the comtalk...

    You mean when you have to descide to go after the dralthi or after the gratha ? Had to search for that also for a while. Press ctrl-M to get your nav map. Now you can select a nav destination by right-clicking it. (sometimes you have to try a few times)

    ok, pressing F1 gets me back in my seat :-) BTW GREAT missions that I get to fly and great ships too :-) Was especially surprised to find me in one of those kilrathi "flying rocks". Nice mission design. Very nice ! Almost wish I was unemployed so that I could keep playing, cause it seems...

    Howdy :-) After a week of preparations for assisting with an experiment on the ISS, I'm back at playing wc ue in my free time :-) Got past the difficult missions : going from keyboard to mouse control helped a lot and I guess my reflexes have sharpened a bit :-) Still hard though, but I got...

    Thanks for the tips quarto :-) Didn't succeed the missions yet, but getting closer :-) Gonna try and complete them on standard difficulty setting (ace) I might also add that I'm playing with keyboard controls, which doesn't make things easier. It's ok if you can do a head on attack, but for...

    Hi Guys, Downloaded Unknow enemy a few days ago and started playing, and wow, nice piece of work I must say. Some questions though: some of the ingame video (the interlace stuff, eg when jumping to another system (at least I think that's what it is)), plays like in fast forward, skipping...
