    so we're still kinda split on the turret issue. Personally, I don't think I saw my turret EVER fire on its own. Privateer manual anyone?

    Privateer beatable with Galaxy?

    then what's the point of turrets if they don't even fire by themselves...and when you're in turret mode, you can't even steer the ship.

    Privateer beatable with Galaxy?

    thx for your insight Ijuin. Now it brings me to a question, do turrets fire by themselves or do you have to man them? I didn't really notice it shooting anything in the F8 view. And do they have their own energy supply or do they use up the entire ship's energy just like the forward guns?

    I have found various timelines regarding the WC universe. But they all seem different to me. There's one on CIC, there's one on the Aces site. What's more accurate?

    Privateer with Win98

    The way I run Privateer is I edited the config.sys file. If I remember correctly, I added the lines: DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS DEVICEHIGH=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE to the config.sys file. The emm386.exe file loads the Expanded memory needed to play the sounds and speech. Make sure you...

    If I wanted to start from the very very beginning of the WC Universe, where would I start? What sources would I use? This includes games, books, movies, whatever is WC related. Thanks.

    Oh...oops, I never knew abandonware was considered warez, aside from a part of the name. I read that abandonwares are not illegal because the games are not on the shelves anymore. Therefore, the producer does not make money from them anymore. In turn, it is not illegal because you're not...

    Privateer sys. requirements

    I'd like to know what the system requirements for Privateer are. The ones on the box I guess. I wanna slow down my computer appropriately with Moslo so that the game runs at the right speed. Thanks.:)
