We are finalizing the poster at this time and hope to have it ready for the spring.
Kilrathi Saga - Installer and XanMovie working
Kilrathi Saga WC1 - Plays intro, but crashes at first menu screen.
Kilrathi Saga WC2 - No known problems.
WC3W, WC4W, and WC4 DVD - Display "VirtualProtect() failed." error at startup.
WCP and SO - Crash at startup in all video modes.
Privateer 2 - Movies run fine, gameplay fine but sound stutters. Speed limiter works too, which it doesn't for me in Win98.
Let us know if you discover anything more about Win2K's compatibility with WC.
Hugh QuarshieNow what to have him sign.. A heavily modified Star Wars Captain Panaka figure? Maybe the Official Wing Commander Movie Magazine?

During playing movie, display goes blackout, error-messagesappears at the top of TV, and hang up.
The format info for homeworlds models is released, and 3ds, lightwave, asc info is all readily available. A converter would be a simple thing to be made by someone who knows what to do with it, 2 nights work probably. That person which knows what to do is what we're missing. Any helpers?
Also, any donated Wing Commander related 3d models would give us a jump start. So far I've made a Dralthi, but it's not much. Originally It was for the airquake2 mod for quake2. But I won't waste it if I have it. We could shave off weeks to get to the same point if some people felt like helping us out. Any help will be credited and VERY appreciated.
Basically, we're out to bring Wing Commander into the strategy game universe, and we want to make it as good as possible. So we're not overlooking any chances to make things sooner and better. We've got a lot of work to do, and we'd like to get a working version out as soon as we can.
Contact me at banach@Erols.com or ICQ 6918556 or ICQ 4189579 (preferred) for info, pics, some progress, anything you want that we have.

No experience is required. The main focus will initially be on getting thegeneral mission structure in place, so scripters and mapmakers will be thefirst priority. Anyone owning a full copy of Starsiege can be taught thebasics of map editing and scripting work. Additional help is needed forskinning and voice acting (possibly). Also, someone able to provide exactdetail on the Vega Campaign missions would be invaluable in the preliminarystages. Finally, anyone who just wants to watch, kibitz or cheer iswelcome to join in as well.
A bare bones web page for the project has been erected athttp://hammer.prohosting.com/~h2liu, and anyone interested should contactOrogogus at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will characters have unique names in UO2?
Characters will have unique names in UO2. This should reduce exploits, make long-distance communication easier, and reduce customer service concerns overall.
Shaggy and Smegmelon have set up the Wing Commander Historical Perversion Society. It's something you'll definately want to check out, assuming your ISP has locked out everything but the 'WCHPS' subdirectory of Tripod.
Here are the results:Beware that it's not rare for different EA officials to make contradictory statements in regards to Wing Commander products and/or they may have a very limited supply, so you'd probably might want to get in touch with them yourself before you send any money or games.
First, the good news (at least for the North American people):This offer still seems to stand. Keisa Swann from Electronic ArtsCustomer Warranty told me that I can send the old software with acheck/money order for $10 to the address below:
Electronic Arts Customer Warranty
PO Box 9025
Redwood City CA 94063-9025
Now, the bad news (for the European people):
They only ship in North America (I assume this includes Canada).The german customer support (email@example.com) told me that the DeluxeEdition was only available in the US and isn't available anymore (noteven in the US).
Howdy all, just letting you know the new Wing Commander Incursion Movie site has been renewed. After a really busy end of '99 and Christmas new year period we're back to finish the job.I assume by "new site" they mean there's an update at their old site which you can find here. And in regards to his question, the movie is just for rental in quite a few places. You can find cheap places to buy the DVD in our Where to Buy section however.
For starters all 3D models are completed and all that's left is animation. We have done a fair bit of the animations with quite a few to go, but new pictures of the TCS Broadfire Assault class carrier are on display at the site and I hope you all like them we spent quite a while working it.
The site is up with perhaps a few minor bugs, but our first testing of the site was good. It all seemed to work. Any probs, just e-mail us. We usually check the mail every one to two days.
Hope you enjoy and does anyone know when Wing Commander will be released for video or dvd sale in Australia? The rentals are here, but no sale.
There is an amusing story behind how Digital Anvil managed to hook up with Microsoft. "We all got drunk on margaritas one day and decided to email Bill Gates," Erin Roberts confides.

A third version, which was featured as a cover story inthis magazine two years ago, remains in development limbo; however, thestandard rumor is that it will reappear as massively multiplayer game a laUltima Online.
