    Outstanding work so far! I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes!

    WC3 Win95 Patch

    Hmm... I expected that to be the CIC's downloads area, but it appears to be missing, as is the WC4 patch.

    Old Wing Commander games new

    wcdx, meanwhile, is essentially a patch on the official Windows 95 versions of WC1 and WC2; it's the original game in the original engine, updated to be playable on modern systems.

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    @ghost wolves: Sorry for the wait, but I found the answer you're looking for. First, you need to enable cheats; if you're using wcdx, you can do this in regedit by navigating to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Origin Systems\WC: Kilrathi Saga and setting the Cheater value to 1. That is...

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    I think they remapped it to ctrl instead of alt or something; I can check after I get back from Prague.

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    I'm not at home right now and can't check directly, but I think those cheats may still work; they just have to be activated in a different way. I don't remember the details off-hand.

    Star Trek: Picard | Free Series Premiere Episode on Youtube

    I absolutely cannot abide the idea of this happening in any rational Star Trek timeline. The destruction of Romulus in the "prime" timeline was one of the absolute worst things to come out of the 2009 movie. Never mind the scientific absurdity of a supernova in a populated star system, the...

    Star Trek: Picard | Free Series Premiere Episode on Youtube

    I agree completely; @Vidmaster gets straight to the heart of the matter. I'm a deeply devoted Trekkie, and while I haven't really been happy with anything on offer since DS9 ended (such an amazing show!), I could at least recognize the Star Trek heritage in Voyager, Enterprise, and the later...

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    I don't have a good answer for you. I don't have a lot of free time on my hands, and when I do, I'm usually inclined to unwind with more passive pursuits. It does bug me that I haven't finished this, but I also want to finally spend some time playing Kerbal Space Program, for instance.

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    Hi @Hrvg; if you're looking to modify the DOS versions, check out @UnnamedCharacter's excellent work on the Wing Commander Toolbox. You may be able to find someone on that thread who can help you. If you're relying on wcdx, then be advised that I haven't done any work on SO1 or SO2 yet (and my...

    Hong Kong Controversy Ensnares WC Vet (October 13, 2019)

    Hmm... that letter is dated Oct 18, but references Blizzard's original punitive measures, which have since been reduced. All winnings were restored, and the ban was reduced from one year to six months.

    Planet Nine Might be a Black Hole (Did the Wing Commander Movie Predict This?)

    It's fun to think about, but Planet Nine is not a black hole. At 10-15x the mass of the Earth, that's way too tiny to be a stellar remnant black hole, which essentially only leaves primordial black holes (a black hole remnant from the big bang). We've never seen any actual evidence that...

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    Interesting; I may have to take a look at that. Eventually. I am once again completely swamped with other stuff. Incidentally, if anyone out there is interested in contributing to wcdx, please let me know. The project is open-source for a reason...

    Always nice to see a friendly ship! Welcome to the forums! I look forward to reading more about your project.

    Forgotten Babylon 5?

    I strongly disagree on this point. Babylon 5 was and remains very special. It's not just about surface-level elements, such as being set on a space station; the real story of Babylon 5 spans centuries. No other show I've ever seen has quite the same scope, and the focus on a galactic war as a...

    Forgotten Babylon 5?

    Little-known fact: The DVD menu for Space: Above and Beyond features the station from Babylon 5. Yes, really.
