    WC SM1/2: Where can I get the DOS versions?

    It is suprising about those good old 5''25 that they were are far more reliable than today's CD/DVD. On my second PC(486DX2) I still have an over 20 year old drive for these and a plenty of disks that are all working even today. Who have thought that 5''25 are so expensive nowadays! :eek...

    Privateer: Ascii Sector

    Wow! That's far more mission options than in original privateer. I did some brainstorming : - Merchants Guild also had bounty missions in privateer. I think that they can have escort missions as well. - Private : Intercept cargo - destroy ship and collect it's cargo. - Mercs Guild : Bounty...

    WC TacOps Game Manual v0.1 released

    Yes, I'm using mingw32 C++ compiler (one that comes together with DevC++ IDE) and SDL library (Simple Directmedia Layer) for graphics/mouse/keyboard support. SDL might not be top-performance but it's rather simple to use and it does it's job well. After all, running a 2D strategy game is not...

    WC TacOps Game Manual v0.1 released

    Screenshot Here's a glimpse of what I've been working on lately. I of course mean the computer version of WCTO. I'm nearly finishing the map editor and the major part of game engine at the same time. As soon as I fix some bugs in the editor, I'm going to release it to the public as a tech demo...

    Starship Simulation Games

    Starshatter - definetely a good one, however as Shaggy mentioned it's pure space sim with only minimal plot. Battlecruiser 3000 AD - imho most advanced (and complicated) capship sim ever made. Homeworld series - though it's rather RTS than a space sim.

    Strike Commander

    You can play the game with keyboard+mouse controls without any trouble (keyboard alone just won't do because it's hard to aim precisely) but joystick is still more fun when you're playing flight simulator game :) As for recommendations : I bought Logitech's Attack 3 about six months ago. It...

    C&C3 Demo Released!

    I get the same desync effect . I thought it might be the codec, so I downloaded actual versions of audio and video codecs but it didn't help. So now I have no idea what may cause this :( . Rest of the game game works fine.

    C&C3 Demo Released!

    Yes, I'm running it at 1024x768 with better fx. I just wanted to share my experience, that game can still work fine on older hardware ;) . On the other hand I believe it probably looks much better in full detail and that I unfortunatelly cannnot afford. That's one thing I like about all the...

    C&C3 Demo Released!

    I'm suprised that it actually works smoothly on my *piece-of-junk* pc ;) at 1280x1024 , though at low detail (my configuration: Celleron 2GHz 512RAM, Radeon9000). I was sure that hardware upgrade will be necesarry before I'll be able to play it. btw I already love this game. Let the Mammoths...

    Strike Commander

    Liked it too. I'll never forget when once my fuel tank got hit, and I ran out of fuel long before reaching the airfield, but I still somehow managed to glide to it and land the plane with engines off :D .

    What would you like to see in a non-standard Wing Commander game?

    Thx! :) I'm working on it barely for a month and there's still much to be done, but you can expect more info sometime soon.

    What would you like to see in a non-standard Wing Commander game?

    Have you heard about Ironduke's WC Tactical Operations ? It's a table turn-based strategy game in WC universe. See the topics about WCTO in Fan projects & Editing for more info. PC version of the game is currently in development. I'm actually working on the code.

    What would you like to see in a non-standard Wing Commander game?

    Yeah, Renegade was fun. Especially when you finally got into Mammoth tank :D

    Don't have $400 to drop? Have a little patience...

    There's another solution for the people concerned about Vista and nobody posted it here. You might install both Vista and XP on your PC using second-stage bootloader, and choose wether you like to boot XP or Vista anytime at system start-up. Therefore if you have any software/hardware that...

    I would like to be the first person to express my grave reservations about

    In that case there exist maybe two or tree games that are actually *space simulators* like the Frontier maybe. I used term "space sim" because it is commonly used when referring to games like WC, Freespace, Starlancer, X-wing etc.

    I would like to be the first person to express my grave reservations about

    I agree with Fatcat that WC Arena has gone wrong way. History proves that EA can and do screw up good game titles, just as it did with Command & Conquer (when "Generals" was released) and now the same is happening to my beloved Wing Commander :( I know some of you (maybe even most of you)...

    Why skids?

    Then how to explain takeoff animation in WC2 ? It looks like those fighters are actually gliding for a moment (they're not hovering up)
