Excalibur Fix Gets Pilots Flying Again Update ID

Clever Wingnut Luke has fixed a tricky WC Saga bug that's previously been described as "almost impossible to reproduce and fix." The issue involved corruption of the player's profile that stripped the Excalibur of her guns at a certain point in the game, which made completing the campaign impossible. The "EPW Bug" can now be resolved by running Luke's new tool on damaged profiles. If this has slowed you down, grab the patch here (300 k zip) and read instructions on how to use it here. Any additional questions can be resolved at the CIC Forums.
I am not a WCS team member, but I think I found a solution. After analyzing KalEl's WCS profile at wingcenter.net, I found the problem. Then yesterday I wrote a first version of my EPW repair tool and KalEl was able to repair his corropted WCS profile with the tool and now he has the primary weapons back on Excalibur.

After lot of tests I have now published my repair tool.

Check Out Kilrathi Saga's Swag

Longtime Wingnut Joshua Dworkin has put together a pretty neat unboxing video. Since this trend came along relatively recently, it's cool to see these done for classic Wing Commanders, and I don't think we've posted a Kilrathi Saga version before. Completionists will be happy to see that he's kept his unrelated reference cards and advertisements, and we get good glimpses at the awesome discs, beefy manual and super cool 2673/1997/2003/2014/2025 calendar.

Stealth Carrier Sneaks Into The News

DefianceIndustries has put together a very sleek stealth carrier that belongs to the Black Lance. He's dubbed it the Typhon, and it's strongly inspired by the Evansville class transport depicted in Wing Commander 4. The ship has been modeled in really exotic detail with nifty hexagonal hull patterns and interior items on the flight deck. (2018-02-12)
