    Annual Call For Award Nominations (December 2, 2022)

    A certain remake is a brilliant project, through and through.

    I never understood why Tolwyn hated Blair so much.

    Well, to be fully honest, WC2 is pretty weak when it comes to setup. Its like a reset-button, everything else was just constructed around that reset later. The WC4 stuff on the other hand is more of a eugenics thing, of course Tolwyn's personal Uruk-Hai has to be a better warrior by definition...

    Star Citizen Commemorates First Decade of Development with WC Easter Egg (October 10, 2022)

    There was a, probably not staged, leak of some internal footage the day after CitzenCon: SPOILER WARNING, if you followed this project there are some scenes there that clearly spoil things in the story. The footage does look good. It also shows they have been working on a lot of things that...

    A decade of the Wing Commander franchise

    What DO we know? You keeping teasing these things, like that time you talked about cut ships from WC3, but I never find a WIKI article or other big write-up on these on the site...

    A decade of the Wing Commander franchise

    BUT HOW? Listen, I absolutely get you. My dad had a Mac and I got a bundle-box with 10 games for Christman one day... a box containing legendary experiences like System Shock, and WC3 + SWC that have stayed with me forever, and containing other games like Peter Pan - A Story Painting...

    WC4 Remake

    While I am not certain my view is "jumbled", I did report minor visual issues to and I am happy to test whatever you upload to some server.

    WC4 Remake

    Is that true? Strange, the classic visuals create such a different feeling experience and that is not the nostalgia talking. Engagements feel like they happen at larger distances, other ships feel as if they are moving faster. Watching a Ferret or an Arrow go from left to right, or banking to...

    WC4 Remake

    Here is to Pedro, to whom I wish a speedy recovery. Also, do not go for another record please, I have just reached 17 in '@' and think 18 is beatable given a few more tries, so do not increase that further ;-) Minor bugs I noticed: * press F2, then press Escape to enter the menu: no menu...

    WC4 Remake

    I cannot help but notice that you did not answer that 😇 . The doc says you maintain a thread in the forum, so you really want me to dump the entirety of my feedback in here as a big wall of text?

    WC4 Remake

    Is there a canonical place to give detailed feedback? Or do we just all dump in here? Until this is answered, I will keep it very brief below. 1.) As expected, given the complexity of this topic, there are several issues with input devices :) originally, I thought everything was just buggy...

    ScummVM (original CD or Steam/GoG) is still wonderful 😇

    WC4 Remake

    I know. There is no need to defend your work, we had these discussion already. You put these videos out and you get feedback. Some of that feedback you will like, some of it you won't. And you put the things you like in your backlog, or it confirms things that are already present there. And that...

    WC4 Remake

    I think I need to elaborate here, what do I mean by I would have loved a little bit of additional creative freedom taken there exactly? Well, as Defiance and you have pointed out, the tumbles are a very important part of Wing Commander Gameplay and, more importantly, for game feel. Together with...

    WC4 Remake

    Great progress! Jump looks good. Ejection looks good. Tumble looks good, although I would have loved a little bit of additional creative freedom taken there. The capship explosion however does not work for me 🥺, it is, for lack of a better word, too quick. I feel the intention of WC3/4 was...
