WCSAV is a utility for viewing and editing Wing Commander save files. This program allows you to view and edit data concerning pilots, awards, and missions.
In addition to the above, this program also automatically corrects any series list overflow errors in the saved games. The overflow error causes some pilots, most notably Spirit and Angel, to die for no apparent reason. This is due to a bug in the transfer utilities provided by Origin. You should run WCSAV on any file that includes at least one transferred character to prevent or rectify any troubles caused by this bug.
