    Interview Chris Roberts - Mark Hamill (wing commander 3 1994)

    Thanks for sharing! I don't think I've seen this one before. I had to laugh at Mark Hamill calling the Kilrathi a 'demented version of Garfield.' I was curious so I looked up which magazine it's from and I found an issue of 'PC Fun' over at that could be it...

    More Memories of David Warner & Extended Wing Commander Scenes (July 26, 2022)

    I'm saddened to hear of the passing of David Warner. He may have had no more than 5.5 min of screen time in Wing Commander (if you count the disk audio), but it was memorable and added a touch of class. In his honor, enjoy a couple brief extended scenes... First up, his call with Blair...

    WC Movie promotional prints

    Cool!. I have one of these press kits but the one I have doesn't have the slides. IIRC there was more than one version and one included more of the Black and White prints than the others as well. What are you wanting for the set?

    Setting Up Wing Commander 4 Cheats GOG version

    Mitchel is the WC3 cheat IIRC. You need "-chicken" for WC4. I haven't tried it recently but I believe you put it within the quotation marks in the shortcut's "target" box but after the *.exe (and there should be a space between exe and the dash).

    Something to Talk Obutu (July 10, 2022)

    I was always curious about why specifically Starship Troopers gets mentioned on the back of the DVD box for the movie... They both have fresh recruits going to war but the similarites kinda end there... Regardless, the temp music used when editing the movie in post-production is heavily...

    Something to Talk Obutu (July 10, 2022)

    Here's a short clip of a deleted line (and alt takes and temp cues) from the Wing Commander movie. Hugh Quarshie's Mr. Obutu utters an apparent African expression that I'd love to learn more of its origins and meaning. I feel it gives the scene an interesting flavor. One thing that was always...

    HD video packs - Tech Support

    The error still sounds like a codec issue. The same thing happens with the original VOBs when the game is looking in the wrong place for an MPEG2 decoder. Originally the solution would have been to install something like mpeg2dec and run the 'register' function to make windows recognize it...

    HD video packs - Tech Support

    Did you get the GOG version working correctly before trying the HD pack? If you go to your VOB folder and play one of the HD version video files separately from the game on it's own, does it play correctly? if the answer to either of these is no, then you might need to install the appropriate...

    Can you please detail your installation steps you took to try and get them running? Also, did you have it running with any previous versions of the HD packs?

    Help Getting Wing Command Prophecy to run with Updated Videos

    The folder should be named "MOVIE" with no 'S' at the end. Try renaming it. If that doesn't work, it's possible you are missing the appropriate codecs for windows to play that video format. Also, some people have noticed really long load times when using the HD videos. Consider trying to...

    Wing Commander Toolbox

    There's a few posts back a number of pages in this thread about the changes you need to make in your script to allow for the accents. This one and the posts surrrounding it are part of a discussion about doing exactly this.

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    This is basically correct. The DVD version includes both files but defaults to the 'censored' version regardless of which region you are in. If you want the uncensored version to play in-game you can just go to the video files themselves and swap the file names on the two options.

    HD video packs - Tech Support

    Awesome! Glad you got everything working, and thanks for sharing your observations. There's so much variation in hardware out there that we can't possibly account for every edge case but this kind of info is super helpful for helping others diagnose their issues.

    Wing Commander 1 Ambiance

    There's a few spots I noticed the WC battle music playing (presumably it's from simulator) so it's mostly the rest of the background tracks I was curious about. They wouldn't be out of place in the WC4 bar on the lexington for example, but I didn't recognize them. I feel like a lot of hard...
