    Hellcat cockpit in the WC2 style

    Thanks, that did the trick. I think those files existed in the root of the install folder because that is where I had backed them up to when I installed the fralthra and kamekh add-on.

    Hellcat cockpit in the WC2 style

    Hi all, I have an original WCA install (not from GOG), and I also have the mod installed that added the Kamekh and Fralthra to the game. I have taken the two posted files and installed them, and oddly seen absolutely no effect on the game. The Wraith is not replaced and still works fine. Any...

    BREAKING NEWS: Is Wing Commander Poised To Make a Comeback? (September 28, 2010)

    I think there are a lot of good indicators in this move. Number 1: They're thinking about wing commander. 2. Bioware is a great bunch to be thinking about it. They maks incredible as-good-as-live story sequences. 3. The last time EA released a bunch of old games from an old franchise it was...

    Wing Commander Redux (IGN Story)

    Firstly, I agree with the last poster! Secondly, I think the market that would make WC most attractive from a business point of view is the MMO market. Taking Freelancer as an example, it had a relatively low number of units sold compared to today's top games HOWEVER, long after multiplayer on...

    The Art of Wing Commander Arena - Part Fifty-Six (January 18, 2008)

    Am I the only one who feels terribly disappointed about what Arena IS, when I see these screens. We've seen ship selection screens, upgrade screens, and even a bar. It's as if it was shaping up to be a multiplayer privateer... and instead look what we got. While I have to give EA props for even...

    That's a Capital Idea (February 28, 2007)

    I think you guys ought to run that "What kind of a year will 2007 be for Wing Commander" poll again....I think the results will be significantly different this time around...finally :)

    BREAKING NEWS: First Arena Screenshots! (February 22, 2007)

    Well, all skepticism aside, I'll be hopping online and buying it the moment it shows up. Btw, if it came with a Wing Commander theme...especially of the more traditional variety...I'd be hard pressed not to spend some cash on that too....

    BREAKING NEWS: First Arena Screenshots! (February 22, 2007)

    I'm thrilled to be reading announcements of a new WC game for the first time in a long time. And I certainly can't wait for some multiplayer action with WC fans. But I can't be the only one here who's worried as hell that it might turn out to be Wing Commander in name only. This first release...

    BREAKING NEWS: ESRB Announces Rating for 'Wing Commander Arena' (February 21, 2007)

    I am both incredibly excited and a little worried. I love my 360 to death and it is fantastic for many games, like Gears of War and Rainbow Six. But, anyone who played wing commander 3 on the PS2 or Wing Commander on the SNES might remember that the complexities of power managment, comms...

    Sequel to the Tomorrow War Announced

    Um, I am so buying this when it comes out. Plus I want to post this news story all over the Egosoft X3 forums to tell them to stop whining about how "hard" it would be to make landable planets. Granted, I know that it must be a difficult challenge, but enough games have done it now that it is...

    Prologue Released!

    I too lost mission 2 at that "form on my wing" part. Things ended so abruptly I thought I had mistakenly hit an escape key or something. Seeing the same thing posted here though makes me wonder. In any case, what an amazing job you guys have done. It really feels like a new WC game has been...

    F-104 vs. MiG-21

    The problem is, you guys are arguing in the abstract: about statistics that haven't even been cited. To test the question empirically, one need simply hop into Falcon 4: AF or FreeFalcon. Though built on an older graphics engine, the flight models of this program have repeatedly been hailed...

    Cockpits or no Cockpits

    I've always been puzzled by the no-cockpit debate. Sure it blocks your screen, but that's the idea..."realism" Even in PvP if both people have cockpits then it's a perfectly fair fight. Who buys an F-16 simulator, for example, and gets upset when the real cockpit is there? If one were to...

    Battlestar Galactica

    I've been reading over the forum here, and it seems to me that everyone is missing something in battlestar galactica's main theme that makes it special. It is NOT about humanity fighting robots or aliens. On the surface it seems to be, but the biggest issue that they repeatedly attempt to...
