Black Lance Approves Of Music Videos

AD's project to create a movie based on footage from the WCIV DVD is progressing nicely, so he has taken a break to join in with the theme of the week: music videos! The music in this video is "New World" performed by Leroy, and like yesterday's video this is also based around WCIV DVD footage. Here's AD with more details:

I thought I would try my hand at a music video. The principles aren't a lot different from what I am doing with my WC4 movie project, so I gave it a shot. Plus this gives me something to share while we wait for my movie project. By the way, I'm over halfway done the gameplay videos, although I would like to try something more complex for the final fights.

This music video as well uses the WC4 DVD as source and could sort of be described as Black Lance propaganda, but that isn't an accurate description. Its a 3 1/4 minute video and I have provided it in high res divx (50MB) or a lower res Windows Media file (7.9MB).

If for some reason the above links don't work for you, the files are also available on our ftp by replacing "http://download" in the above links with "ftp://ftp".

Official news, fan projects and topics of particular interest to Wing Commander fans.

Thrakhath Sets Off For Earth
2014-07-25 -- The Confed homeworld has more to fear than a Shiraak! The Hakagas that were under construction in the far flung reaches of the Empire have been completed and are on the move. Everything about the vessel in Klavs' latest render feels heavy and well armored.

Mark Hamill on Star Wars
2014-07-24 -- The BBC caught up with Mark Hamill at the Guardians of the Galaxy red carpet event in London. They spoke briefly about the new Star Wars trilogy, which has recently started filming. Luke Skywalker is one of several characters from the original trilogy to have a supporting role.

WCMovie Rapier at Paintball Field
2014-07-23 -- Here's a cool find by Klavs. One of the movie Rapier props is now part of the Bricket Wood paintball arena in Hertfordshire, just north of Greater London. It plays a central role in the Launch Pad game mode, in which the defending team must try and launch their space ship while the attacking team bears down on them.

WC Saga Plus Enhanced Fiction Viewer
2014-07-22 -- Luke is still plodding along on Saga Plus, incorporating many bugfixes and enhancements based on player feedback. The complete list of (intended) changes is too long to include here, but many enhancements are meant to improve the usability of the various interfaces throughout the game. Below you can see the original fiction viewer (left) alongside the WCS+ version.

Escapist's Not Feeling Privateer
2014-07-21 -- To coincide with the completion of the Wing Commander series on GOG, Escapist ran a series of reviews last year that covered almost the whole franchise. At the time they skipped over Academy and the Privateers, but they've circled back around with a Good Old Review for Gemini Sector pilots. It's the same reviewer that thought Prophecy was pretty good and loved WC1&2, but in this case, he just can't get into Privateer.

Krant Hardly Wait To Play
2014-07-20 -- Shaggy's completed the Krant fighter for Beat Hazard that he mentioned earlier this month, but the Kilrathi fleet isn't quite complete. The fearsome Jalthi is now in the works to supplement the kats on the very high end, and then that should finish off the planned lineup. You can see all of the cool ships that have been designed for this scroller shooter game here.

Armada/SWC Crossover Adds Self Sufficient Invasion Capability
2014-07-19 -- The parade of massive Kilrathi warships continues. Up next in the armada is the Shiraak carrier. It's a fairly rare ship to see in fan projects, and Klavs' take on it is certainly the most detailed Wingnut attempt.

New Documentary Explores Video Game Industry
2014-07-18 -- Crowdfunded documentary Video Games: The Movie examines the transition of video games from niche product to billion-dollar industry. It features several big names in game design, like Cliff Bleszinsky (Unreal, Gears of War) and Kobayashi Hiroyuki (Resident Evil). The only familiar name in the credits is Wing Commander veteran Warren Spector, but LOAF managed to snap (tweet) a half second of Wing Commander 4 footage with Mark Hamill, Chris Roberts and Malcolm McDowell in it.

16th Birthday Party Moves to a New Night!
2014-07-17 -- It's almost that time again! We're just about a month away from the CIC's 16th Birthday at wcnews.com.

Phoenix Crew Disembarks For New Experiences
2014-07-16 -- Silent Hunter asked us to remind everyone that the crew of his ship, the TCS Phoenix, is currently enjoying shore leave on pleasure planet Jolson. If that sounds like a place you'd like to be, join the Wing Commander From the Ashes RPG to start in. They are a forum based RPG that role plays its adventures here.
