    PR Versus Origin's Privateer map discordance

    First off: I've played and helped beta test 4 or 5 previous betas versions and pre1.0 versions, and after a short vacation away from Gemini space I came back to the Official v1.0. It has been a masterful job - a great improvement even from the most recent pre-release. Thanks. One persistent...

    Broken Easter Egg (or not?)

    Playing v1.0pre4 and I just finished destroying the Steltek Drone. No mouse problems or freeze ups noticed during jumps throughout the campaign with exception of one 40 second freeze, and one total lock-up during jumps.

    WIN XP and Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS

    I just received a fully loaded Alienware PC to replace my aging 2.2 Mhz PC that I still had configured for WIN 98SE. The Pre-Release Privateer Remake v1 ran fine on my WIN 98SE PC with no conflicts. With Win XP and a Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS soundcard, I'm having troubles with Pre-Release v1...

    Are you kidding me!!?

    I just finished taking out the Steltek drone with my 'Boosted StelGun' and was feeling pretty cocky, so I decided I pop some retros in high number with high bounty (thought I take on a Retro capship with 8 escorts to start out). On my way to J900 from Perry, I stopped at XXN-1927 to make sure I...

    Privateer in Grandad's Taurus?

    Curious to know how many of you veteran WC pilots have been able to finish Privateer (Privateer 1 - Steltek Drone plot) in the Taurus. I tried out the newest version of VegaStrike last week, and the music that is played while I'm in dock made me homesick for Privateer to the point I had to play...

    Official HELLO from hoovsbin

    Hello everyone, I've posted a few times and I can see this board is frequented by pretty good and friendly people who share my love for these games. I've been playing WC games since WC1 came out (was it 1990?). A friend of mine was the only guy I knew who had a PC (I think it was a 286)...

    The Full Privateer Experience

    I recently re-started the Privateer 'Steltek' and 'Righteous Fire' campaigns for about the 15th time since the game hit the stores and my PC. In the RF campaign, I like to concentrate on the Retros, and will have Lynch fix the pirates as enemies once I polish off Gov. Menesch. On this past go...
