    The Darkest Dawn is Cleared for Launch

    Not really familiar with how the AI works in the Freespace engine. I seem to remember that in Standoff and Wc3, as the Kilrathi got smarter and tougher, so do the Confed pilots. Does Saga work the same way? Am replaying on Hard, and it seems like it's a lot harder to keep some of them alive...

    Problems? Post them here...

    I've never ran into the memory crash bug until today. I tried restarting my computer, and got to the Standoff logo on the screen, then it crashed again. Are there any solutions to this one yet?

    Full Standoff Mission Tree

    I'm not sure why it wasn't working before, but as soon as I read your post, went back and tried it again, and no problems! So, thank you!

    Episode 5 - Missions/Tactics *SPOILERS*

    Point taken. Actually went back and re-watched the movie. It wasn't as bad as I remember :) - maybe because when it came out originally, I was in my early 20's, and nothing was cool enough. Either way, it did indeed add a level of understanding to the characters and the Kilrathi; although...

    Full Standoff Mission Tree

    In the episode 4 Losing Path mission "Backlash", they mention the possibility of taking out a convoy after striking at the Fralthra (and the two Ralatha). I've taken out the capships, but I can't seem to select the Nav Point for the Convoy? Is there a specific requirement that I'm not meeting...

    Ok whats your best story about Wing Commander?!

    The first time I beat WC3. When it first came out, I hadn't played WC2 yet, but had played WC1. My cousin told me that Luke Skywalker was in it, and I was in. It was really great to see all the...lesser-known...actors in there I knew - Biff, Luke, that British guy from Clockwork Orange. The...

    Run All Old WC Games in DOSBox Walkthrough

    Yeah, and when I ran SM2 through DosBox manually, it doesn't happen. WC2 and SO1 & 2 work just fine. Weird stuff...

    Run All Old WC Games in DOSBox Walkthrough

    Just got myself a brand-shiny-new computer, and re-downloaded WC1, 2, 3, and 4 from GOG. When I went to launch WC1 for the first time, the picture doesn't fill the screen, It goes all the way to the top, and the edges, but stops about two inches from the bottom. This gives the game a...

    Tactics and Tips *SPOILERS*

    So, long time...doing a replay. Found a list of all the achievements and medals you can get, and am on Hyperion 2, trying to keep the Hermes' health above 89% (it's one of the bonus goals). It looks like that means it can't take even one torpedo. I've flown it (and reflown it) several times...

    WC Arena Play Dates

    So, in the interest of setting a big group play for Arena, what about Sunday the 16th (that's tomorrow) at around 6:00 or so PDT? I don't know what time zone you're in, but if we could get a dozen or more people in on this, that'd be sweet

    WC Arena Play Dates

    Yes, I'd love to. Spread the word!! I'll be on tomorrow. I use my stepson's username: TwoDollarsOnly. Should be on tomorrow night (Friday the 14th) around 8:30 or so , Pacific Time. To LeHah and Mace; you're on the list, whatever that means...:)

    WC Arena Play Dates

    Me? It's 10:05 Pacific Time, Sept. 10th. I'm there right now. So, step into the Danger Zone, and prepare to have your ass handed to you braised, with a light curry sauce for just a bit of spicy! BLAM! That' right, I'll talk shit if that'll get some people on Arena! Don't like it? Come log...

    WC Arena Play Dates

    So, it doesn't look like anyone really plays Arena, but I just got it, dammit, and I wanna play! So, this thread is just for that. Whenever you're on (or gonna be on) Arena, you can post it to this thread, and all the wingnuts out there can join in, and maybe...just maybe....

    Happy Birthday Wing Commander Arena! (July 25, 2012)

    Just started with Arena myself; didn't even hear about it until recently, and just downloaded it last week, and no one wants to play (at least not at the same time I do) :( So, I'll lead off setting up this play date... Any wingnuts wanna get down on some Arena, I'll be booting it up tomorrow...

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    I love coming back to this forum; always interesting to see the creative dialogue flowing!! I take Quarto's point about the length of the missions in Saga. And the in-flight dialogue can be...well, you know, especially if you have to replay it several times. My two cents aren't worth a penny...

    Names are the Name of the Game (July 8, 2012)

    I couldn't go with Deathstroke. He would be my favorite Kilrathi, cuz he does hang out in the Dralthi for a while. But, just from the sound of the name: Apreshredder can't be beat, IMHO

    Wing Commander 4 Replay Week 2

    Ah, the DVD version. Sometimes it shows you things your probably shouldn't see (Casper Van Diem, for example). When Maniac beats Vagabond at cards, he's holding 5 queens, which is a lot of queens. Love it

    WCIV in Windows Xp??

    Yeah; I just got the DVD version from GOG, and noticed...Johnny Rico! (Casper's character from Starship Troopers, AND Starship Troopers 3. It exists). Don't know how many times I played this game, even after that incredible piece of cinema came out (yes, I refer to Starship Troopers), and I...

    The Darkest Dawn is Cleared for Launch

    Do you tell drug addicts how to make their own drugs, too!? You're perpetuating an addiction, sir. But, as an addict, I've gotta say: you're goddamn right I'll be making some of my own. Also, with DD coming out, I am currently playing through the entire Wing Commander universe. Now that...

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    Going back and replaying the mission, yeah, there's not a lot of challenge to the objectives when you're in the atmosphere. It is definitely the music that makes the mission. Think about how awful Star Wars would've been if it wasn't for John Williams soundtrack... "Flight of the Valkyries"...
