    WC3: what if you could win with Behemoth?

    In both cases in the WC3 cut scenes when the T-Bomb is deployed in Hyperion, and Kilrah both Planets went kaboom. Prophecy seemed to retcon the damage to Kilrah by having the planet split open but still physically there in some form.

    WC3: what if you could win with Behemoth?

    The Atomic Bombs at that point in the war didn't need to be used. The US and her Allies had the Home Islands in a stranglehold. One of the main justifications for their use however was the casualty estimates from the proposed Operation Downfall invasion of Japan. The US had other plans it could...

    Freelancer porting of Wing Commander ships

    So I went ahead and copied the files over to my Freelancer Installation. Fired it up and started a new game. I must say it was awesome watching The Donau get jumped by the flight of Dragons. So far I've only got as far as Completing Mission 1 B, the hunt for the Rouge Base. The Razors are...

    Happy Birthday Armada! (September 22, 2019)

    All it takes in WC2 is one hit to the Target Tracker, and it's game over torpedo run. Has to be one of the most frustrating things late game at K'Tithrak Mang. The other of course being the swarm of Sartha flown by the Drakhai Imperial Guard.

    Happy Birthday Armada! (September 22, 2019)

    Good to see you again Capi. I said that it was "near impossible", not that it was completely impossible. The one technique I found to work was to start locking at maximum range and then creep forward slowly staying at the edge of the Flak Guns range. It works better with the Banshee then the...

    Happy Birthday Armada! (September 22, 2019)

    I can remember Torpedo runs on the Lexington, and Shiraak were near impossible. In campaign mode this didn't really matter so much if you killed all the escorting fighters, and you have a Torpedo capable craft the game jumps right to the cut scene of the Carrier's Death.

    Freelancer porting of Wing Commander ships

    Looks good L.I.F. , It brings back memories of flying the Thuderbolt, Arrow, and Dragon in Starlancer. I can remember using SLEdit to edit the stats on the Dragon to get the speed up towards 500 and making the Afterburner Fuel 999, closest I could get to the unlimited afterburner fuel. The...
