    Check Out the Other Wing Commander Collectible Cards (July 31, 2020)

    I'm assuming they meant "Admiral" instead of General. Still, the flavor text on the back of the card is more about the Kilrathi... in general [ ;) ]. The admiral is the guy in the movie with the clan flags on the back of his armor, so it does appear they swapped the art on the General and...

    Check Out the Other Wing Commander Collectible Cards (July 31, 2020)

    It's interesting that the back of the pilgrim traitor card mostly goes into detail about the Pilgrim Cross rather than the traitor itself. It does however - in that text - reference Blair killing a Kilrathi and finding out who the traitor is both with the knife. Both of those things are cut in...

    A Portent of Things to Come (July 29, 2020)

    That would be the Confederation Handbook which accompanied the movie. It details a lot of the animosity that led up to the Pilgrim Wars and why there was so much hate.

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    The double sided DVD (with the mpeg2 videos) is what we're talking about. The only other version is a single sided DVD that is basically identical to the CD version just all on one disk.

    That said, if you really want to get in to audio editing you could probably pull background noises out of other videos and demux all the channels into separate tracks and use that to create a 5.1 track since most of these videos have no music. The CD version audio is already 'dolby...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    There's no point. I have the DVD here and GOG's version is basically a direct copy of the DVD files.

    There are several space transitions that lack sound, but they are that way on the DVD. The audio for the Telamon scenes are in the pack I linked above.

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    Yeah this is the one I mentioned a few posts up. It doesn't have audio on the DVD for some reason but I did post a fixed one for you a while back if you still have that. If not here's all the audio for those scenes ripped from the CD versions ...

    Privateer 2 Win95 and Saitek ST90 stick

    Is it working in-game? Did you select the joystick as input method in the in-game menu ((alt+o inflight)? I would not worry about calibrating the stick in-game if you can calibrate it in windows and can fly ok.

    As far as I know most of those have no dialogue. You could probably just wrap up the extra files in a separate zip rather than replace the existing ones. There's maybe two exception: There's the wash-out ending with the extra bar coda, and a segment of the scene where you chastise maniac for...

    WC4 Fan Remake Launches Full-Featured Website (July 23, 2020)

    How hard would it be to just get the game to apply a very light film grain filter as the videos play? I'm guessing the results won't be ideal, but it could allow people to choose to turn it off if they don't like it. I personally feel the end results of having it baked in to the movies is...

    WC3 3DO codec, compression, decoding and comparison discussion

    Info on refpack: http://wiki.niotso.org/RefPack " RefPack is an LZ77/LZSS compression format made by Frank Barchard of EA Canada for the Gimex library used by many older games by EA " The part I find funny in this wiki entry is the bit where it says near the end : " The original RefPack.cpp...

    WC3 3DO codec, compression, decoding and comparison discussion

    Yeah I'd love to have an STR unpacker as well. I'm not a code magician, unfortunately. They are definitely an archive of sorts though. I posted a bit about them further up. You can see the whole index of files in the STRs in plain text near the top of the STR. You can see where the...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    The results are promising. One thing though, at least with the low resolution the separation beween the CG backgrounds and the live action doesn't stand out so much. I feel like there must be some kind of lighting filter that can add a subtle blend to the edges where there's motion over a...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    I don't know if they should be twice the size or why headers and metadata would make that much difference, but the number of files has to do with the way WC3 PSX handles the branching. The PC version has all the alternate takes in the same file but with flags for where each "shot" starts. It's...
