    Difficulty levels explained

    Does anyone happen to have inside knowledge on what the difficulty levels in WC 3 & 4 and Prophecy (which is different) do? I'm trying to figure out which difficulties, if any, boost the stats of enemy fighters and which don't. I've been playing WC3 and 4 on Ace (it would seem that it's...

    Some thoughts on the mod...

    For some reason this gem of a mod passed by me over the years, and after just completing Secret Ops, it was time to test it out. Needless to say, I play on Nightmare. I have to say that the entire concept of flying Scimitars out of a Bengal is excellent and the nostalgia factor is high. You...

    Wingmen in WC: Prophecy

    Does anyone else think that the redshirt wingmen in WC: P added hugely to the game? I'll tell you why: it's the Jagged Alliance effect. The side characters are voiced in an interesting or funny way and given unique in-game dialogue, and most importantly, are mortal. You start to care about...

    Spoony Experiment's Privateer 2 review

    I just saw this review, and suffice it to say that Spoony was very negative of the game, citing numerous problems with AI (one pirate was unable to destroy his ship standing still for 35 minutes, the constant respawning enemies etc.). Check out the review at : http://spoonyexperiment.com/...

    WC4DVD on XP64

    Hey there, finally got WC4DVD (again, after over a decade). However, problems arise: I can't even run the setup on my XP64 pc. I can, strangely, run the exe on the DVD which results in the well known black screen with the two dialogue choices, but as I was stymied over at XP side I...

    WC 3 & 4: Ace or Hard difficulty?

    Just finished Standoff on my WC Series playthrough, and am now starting III. I recalled something about Ace actually being harder than Hard because of afterburner use or something, and it's not so clearcut in the simulator. So what's the best difficulty to fly on in your mind? Crazy is a bit...

    So what do you do when you get shot down?

    I was just wondering what you guys do usually, or what's the "norm" for play-throughs where you advance without retrying unless you face a game over or a campaign loss. Do you just replay and ignore the death until you win (which of course eliminates the chance of seeing some losing paths)...

    A few "talking heads" video character appearance observations...

    I was just wondering... Sparrow wears a different uniform to the other pilots. Is this because she's a woman or what? It's a much better looking one compared to the regular ones, too. You should switch them :P Also... Why does Jean the CPO wear so much make-up as to look beaten up on a...

    How do the Kilrathi go from the end of SO2 to the False Armistice?

    After having completed WC2: SO2 again, I'm left puzzled. The story clearly ends with the Kilrathi victorious with the destruction of the 6th Battle Fleet and the retreat of Confed from the Deneb sector, and with the Emperor believing that "nothing can stop us from conquering Terra now". So...

    Is it possible to have squadron members die?

    I just had an idea that, although minor thing, might increase the enjoyment of Standoff a bit. Is it possible to have your friendly pilots die instead of ejecting every time? They'd have a chance at ejecting, perhaps, but could die just like you otherwise. Of course, only those pilots that...

    Just a friendly word of encouragement...

    Hey there, sometime last year I got the urge to play through all the WC games again after so many years. I completed WCI and WC2 and all the x-packs, and it was almost as fun as it was so long ago. Then, when it came time to play WCIII, I found your project, and I felt that it was a nice...
