THP Expands Workspace & Releases WC4 Video

originalTHP has been an active Wing Commander fan recently and now has a dedicated working area for his Wing Commander projects. His latest is a full divx 5 encoding of an older German Making of Wing Command 4 video that's often been hard to find. Though the documentary is in German, it's still a fun watch even if you don't speak the language. Video taken from the set is in its original English and there are some very cool looks at the prop design and backgrounds. THP has also written transcript of the video that can be translated to help you through. You can download the full 45 meg video here (you might have to wait a few seconds for it to connect). Head on over the originalTHP's new Solsector home here for full information on the video, extra photos, the transcript and more! His original Privateer 2 DOS to Windows upgrade patch is also available.

Stay tuned to his new Solsector home for more developments in the near future!
