    Joystick Roll Command in Privateer

    BTW the reason I was so hot after this is I wanted to try and top my best from early runs of the game, but need every legal advantage I can get. A little technology evens the field a little bit even with slower reflexes etc… the good news is one last thing I tried was to replace the stick (same...

    Joystick Roll Command in Privateer

    Thanks and of course you are right. But I’m stubborn and had to prove it for myself. For the record, I tried a number of approaches. First I confirmed that the keystrokes were in fact being passed by the stick using a profile testing in Notepad. Then I tried mapping the “HOME” key in DosBox, but...

    Joystick Roll Command in Privateer

    Decided to replay PRIV again... thought I had this solved when I figured out that keyboard press in the game of "Page Up" gives a left roll and "Home" yields a right roll. But when I map those to the joystick it does nothing, which is weird because all the other keyboard shortcuts work fine...

    New Privateer 2 Patch Adds Deinterlace Feature & Makes Numerous Improvements (October 1, 2013)

    The main plot line did not begin until I edited. I started the game from the beginning. After not receiving any email messages for 6 or 7 times out on cargo runs I edited CD.DAT from "3" to "1". I received two emails the next time out (the Xavier Shondi ammo cargo escort run and the tip on the...

    New Privateer 2 Patch Adds Deinterlace Feature & Makes Numerous Improvements (October 1, 2013)

    Hi! Copying all CD's to hard drive works great after I figured out that you need to edit CD.DAT to reflect the CD number appropriate for where you are in the game. Otherwise missions are not available.

    New Privateer 2 Patch Adds Deinterlace Feature & Makes Numerous Improvements (October 1, 2013)

    How do I properly copy all the files from the CD's to the hard drive? Copy all files to /Dark? What about duplicate file names?

    Joystick Roll Command in Privateer

    Is it possible to map the original two button type joystick roll command in Privateer to a modern stick? I'm using a Logitech Extreme 3D PRO. Have got every command but this one mapped.

    Windows 7 and WC3...

    GOG version is DOS running in customized DOSBOX. Lots on this subject on other threads in General as well as Tech Support forums. I'd ask if any issue running under Win 7 64 bit. I use Win 7 32 bit with no probs.

    Windows 7 and WC3...

    Anyone know how to mount ISO files as virtual drives in WIN7 so you don't have to change CD's? Only solutions I see are 3rd party - if so which is best?

    Windows 7 and WC3...

    Well it's been over ten years since I played WC3. I recently acquired both the KS and GOG versions. Re-united with and old friend...I am so psyched! Besides the video trick (anyone know why that works?) I have a couple other preferences for KS in Win7. I've always liked my Logitech 3D pro very...

    GOG releases vs KS/DOSBox

    Well it's been over ten years since I played WC3. I recently acquired both the KS and GOG versions. I am so psyched! Get them both.

    Privateer 2 problems with Military

    I'm replaying PRIV2 and can't remember - once you've managed to annoy the Military is there any way to get back in good standing? You cannot depart a Navpoint (that does not contain a jumpgate) if there are any enemies present so it seems hopeless... I could just keep shooting the fighters and...

    Wing Commander 3 Impossible Mission

    Back when I used to think the kill board really ment something, I used to try and see how many I could rack up in this mission, WITHOUT loosing any wingmen. for the best score you keep them as long as you can and then send them back to base just before they would have died anyway.

    Hardest Mission

    There are are couple of seldom played alternative missions in WCIV that are harder than anything mentioned here so far. I tried for a couple of years to beat every single possible mission in WCIV on Nightmare. There is a Deadzone mission where you fail to get the information from the pilot...

    Its about time someone at EA pulled their heads out of their asses...

    To be sure I am annoyed with EA, but I think you go too far. I mean, they just released WC1 KS version to PCGAMER - buy it!

    This is why Origin sucks.

    LOAF, I hope you communicate your view of profit potential to them, because it should be obvious to them that they (Origin) is uniquely positioned to ring up another first - but like so many corporations they are obsessed with business buzzword bean-counting bullshit i.e. the expediency of short...

    This is why Origin sucks.

    They could at least throw us a bone and re-release the old games on DVD.
