    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

    HD video packs - Tech Support

    I assume you mean 'cropped' rather than 'crapped'... anyway Do you mean it's cropping on the sides? Can you provide an example to show how much is actually being cut off on the the sides? Also, is this an issue you are having with the HD videos? or just with the GOG DVD version? IF it's the...

    Perennial Rumor: Wing Commander Making a Comeback? (May 15, 2021) There's definitely better scans, they just aren't necessarily organized in a way that makes them easy to find

    Perennial Rumor: Wing Commander Making a Comeback? (May 15, 2021)

    They've been, until very recently game to do actual live action FMV for both C&C and the Need for Speed franchises. I don't see them necessarily going live action, but at the very least I would bet on mo-cap/perf-cap in-engine 3D cutscenes.

    HD video packs - Tech Support

    There's a couple things to make sure of when installing the upgrades for prophecy. First is to make sure everything runs at each point in the installation process so that you can pinpoint exactly when the game breaks. That said, the obvious first step is to install the actual game with no...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    I went back and looked at the previous attempts to use AI upscale tech on the 25th anniversary video and it's impressive how much better this try was over that one. The previous results were... interesting, though not really what I would call an improvement over the source. I had an idea of...

    Prophecy Cutscene can only see part of image

    Can you walk us through what you did to get the game running in the first place? Did you have the various upgrade packs working correctly with the DVD videos before trying to swap to the upscaled ones? Which patches did you use and in which order did you install them? EDIT: I should ask, is...

    anyone interested in "no cockpit" version of Privateer 1?

    Cool! Are you using Kilrathi Saga as a base to basically port this feature over to Privateer? Either way this is a neat acheivement. I'm partial to cockpits myself but Privateer does have what feels like some of the most limited visibility (at least in the tarsus).

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    I don't want to dismiss video quality improvements yet either, but the audio is something we definitely would love to have. I did some digging and the previous sample I posted was actually from the 3DO demo and not from the game itself. The demo seems to use the PCs compression where the...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    Replying to a bit of an old post here.... I dug up an update from a long time ago that confirms some of what we knew about the 3DO files. The color depth is definitely slightly less than the PSX version, however that may not be where the 3DO videos would be of the most interest...

    What do you HATE (or at least dislike) in each Wing Commander game?

    A lot of this is more grown-up us revisiting something we're overly familiar with. The problem with Tolwyn, even back when it came out, was that the marketing for the game completely spoils the fact that He's a traitor. However the game is toying with a much more conventional storytelling...

    WC3 Neutron Gun stats and possible errors

    Thp made an extractor for P2 relatively recently but it doesn't seem to pull out any info on where or how the game stores gun values . The tools there let you extract images, sprites, sound files, text data...
