    WC3 replayed

    Hello everyone! Now that I have a joystick again for the first time in...I don't know, at least four years I think, and almost all WC titles on GOG, I finally returned to replaying the WC games. While I had great fun playing Privateer again when it was released on GOG even though only on a...

    Secrets of the Wing Commander Universe

    Hi! Thanks to LOAF, I am currently reading and enjoying the guide by Mark Minasi and while I am not yet done with it, I already like the guide. The way it's written just has such an unprofessional feel to it. Really like it was a random WC fan who decided to write such a guide. Though I...

    Split-screen games for the XBox 360

    Hi! The most fun I have with the XBox is when I have some friends around and we play together, so I'm looking for games that support local multiplayer. So far, we pretty much limited ourselves to fighting games (DoA4 and SC II and IV, I'll probably get myself MK vs DC universe) and racing...

    WLAN problems

    Hi! I didn't dare to post this in the Tech Support since it has nothing to do with WC. I have a WLAN router (Sinus 1054 DSL) and connect my notebook to it via an USB WLAN-stick (Netgear). On thursday, suddenly, I couldn't connect to our network. It is shown in the network environment, with...

    Paladin Achievement

    Hi! This moring, Ironduke and I met up online for a few quick rounds of Arena. When we started, we both had about 460 Kills showing in the leaderbord. In the middle of a "Duel" Ironduke told me had unlocked "Paladin" and so did I, one or two games later. When looking at the Leaderboard...

    Guided Missiles in 0.15

    After Ironduke's message, I thought it would be nice to discuss the matter here. So, I am in favour of the rule change (guided missiles hitting their target automatically when in range, no evasive action and no point defense is taken and no chaff pod is released. For some randomness, maybe...

    Popups in the new version

    Hi! Mostly the new popup style for in-game informations about the ships and missiles are a real advance. But on my display, the ship's information pop-ups are very big. I always have to use the slide bars the see the entire information. Maybe that's just because of my display settings but...

    Playing Arena on Friday

    Hi! Ironduke and I, we will be "meeting" for a little bit of Arena on XBox Live tomorrow (Friday, 7th) at 10 am CEST (central Europe summer time), that should be GMT +1 (which switched to summertime as well, didn't it?). We mostly plan to play free-for-all to rack up some kills for that...

    Cheating in the XBox 360

    A question to which I fear I already know the answer but I have to ask anyway. Are there no cheat codes for the console games anymore? I remember with the first consoles, there always were cheat codes (AABBSelectB or something like that) but it seems to have disappeared from the new consoles...

    Read Pilgrim Stars (Spoilers)

    Hi! So, finally I got to read the last WC novel I was missing, Pilgrim Stars. I liked it - it's one of the few (maybe even the only one) WC novels I found to be really suspenseful. Even more with the cliffhanger at the end. I still dislike the Pilgrim stuff and thus was not thrilled to...

    Poor Infantry

    A question that came up for no real reason: Why are fighter pilots (in our world) all officers? As far as I understand it, once you start flying, you're an officer, even though you only have responsability for yourself and that very costly craft, whereas in the army even when you're not an...

    Pancakes

    Good morning everyone! I just had pancakes for breakfast, the North American ones. That's a rare treat I offer myself from time to time, (also depending on my girlfriend's willingness to make me some :p). Of course I had them with Maple syrup. But: I didn't eat them as a fancy tower as it...

    Arena's devices

    So, what are people's thoughts on the different devices you get with your fighters? Here are mine: Tractor beam: I, personally, don't have the skill to use it yet but I saw during the birthday matches that it was employed very skillfully. And it's a cool idea. Power cores/fusion...

    Academy Kilrathi Ship class names?

    Please excuse the longwinded thread title. I was just re-reading StarSoldier and when I came upon the Dralthi article (p. 28/29) I noticed for the first time what the text in the blue box might refer too: "Kilrathi designers are often cited for the simplicity and amount of reuse which goes...

    Port Broughton ever destroyed?

    Hi! Has anyone experienced the destruction of the Port Broughton, or do you always die before the big ship does? Is there some cool explosion or any other effect once she reaches 0%? The lowest I got was 8% but then I was shot down.

    Arena's guns, missiles and ships

    I was quite surprised when I saw that Arena is going to use the Privateer guns and not the WC3, 4 and P guns but I am very glad they did because I think the Privateer guns are some of the most balanced. I was also suprised not to see the Particle cannon, although it appeared in almost every WC...

    Getting music on the Xbox360

    Hi! Yesterday, for the first time, I plugged a USB-stick with some music in my XBox 360. The music played very well, so I was quite annoyed when I discovered that I had no possibility of copying the MP3 files from the stick to the XBox360. My Cd-writer is out of order and the connection...

    SWC MAC on a iBook G4

    Hello! Some years ago I purchased SWC for the Macintosh. Since I don't own a MAC, I never tried it out. Now my girlfriend got an iBook G4 (Computermodel Powerbook 6,7 if that has any meaning to you) and I think it runs OS X. Is it possible to run SWC on that system? Of course, I could just...

    Need help with WC on the PSP

    Me again! So, I am playing WC on the PSP, which is great. Seeing those images again after such a long time is just great and all the little differences are great to see. It really is a joy!  But, I suck at WC on the PSP. SM isn’t so bad, with the setting on “Rookie”, I managed to get...
