    My Mac experience with Super Wing Commander

    UPDATE: After some more experimenting, on the IMac G3 333, I'm now running G3 Throttle at a wait state of 6, and I have PowerLogix Cache Control set to 111 mhz. This has improved the overall gameplay smoothness and stability a bunch. Even in melees with lots of ships, (including cap ships) this...

    My Mac experience with Super Wing Commander

    More on Mac SWC - For those of you who have a G3 or G4; I have run across a really killer utility called PowerLogix cache control. http://www.macobserver.com/news/99/may/990525/g3cacheprofiler.html This, combined with G3 throttle, can get your SWC speed about perfect on a G3. I'm still...

    My Mac experience with Super Wing Commander

    Ok, so back on track. I have discovered that in my opinion the ideal Mac system for SWC (in reference to speed) is a Power Mac with a 604 running at about 120 or 132 MHZ. I'd suggest 64 mb of ram or more, (it's cheap enough) and 4mb of Vram or more. I would suggest OS9.1, as this has pretty...

    My Mac experience with Super Wing Commander

    Tell us about your iMac. Is it a G3? What processor? How much ram? Are you aware of an awesome app called G3Throttle? Do you have a Griffin iMate, or similar ADB to USB adapter? You may not have to go nuts trying to build a Power Mac, provided you have a proper iMac. ALSO, do NOT get rid of...

    My Mac experience with Super Wing Commander

    I guess a comment on SWC for the 3DO is warranted here. I did buy a 3D0 FZ-10 in December of 2015 primarily for SWC. I also managed to get a brand new CH Flightstick Pro for 3D0. I enjoy SWC on the 3DO, and also feel that WC3 is done pretty well on 3DO. I would say that it is fairly worth it to...

    Confessions of a WC fanatic.. What's your story??

    Confessions of a WC Fanatic: My WC story begins around July of 1990 when I was the assistant manager of a Babbage’s (long before the chain became GameStop) and we received a demo from Origin on 5.25” disks labeled “Squadron” which was done on a dot matrix printer. The “Squadron” title had...

    Super Wing Commander played with the 3DO Flightstick Pro (video)

    I guess I'm a fanatic. I recently bought a 3DO FZ-10 as well as an NOS 3DO flightstick so I could play Super Wing Commander. I have to agree that the button combos are a bit frustrating, and I'm disappointed that they didn't use the throttle wheel. However, once I got used to the sticks range of...
