I understand that the auto tracking allows the guns to hit targets with a direct target sighting but what does the tractor capability do?
How is the tractor capability different from the a normal tractor beam?
What's the point of selling reactors and shields that are greater than 5?
I have seen shield 4 level 8 and reactor level 8 on the market.
The Orion is the only ship that can accept a level 5 and nothing higher.
I bought myself an advance repair droid but it doesn't seem to repair the damage to my ship.
I would receive damage my armor and hull and yet I still I have to pay for repairs when I dock.
How do I make the droid work?
I have a Geforce 2 MX video card and I wonder what are the best settings to use get the best visual effects.
Here are my settings so far:
Video: Very High Detail
Optimized: Display List
PerPixelLighting: Reflective Lighting
Colour: 32 bit
In the original Privateer the B&S Omni could detect all the different types of objects.
I was able to buy the B&S Omni, the best radar and the only two colours it detected was red=enemy and...
I notice that mining stations, agricultural worlds and refineries only sell the merchant ships.
I only found the Orion and Centurion on New Detriot.
Is this done on purpose?
I also can't find a station that sells the high grade weapons like the Tachyon and Plamsa gun and better radars...
I'm not clear on the concept of enslaving and freeing slaves.
In the original game if you use your tracker beam to pull in a pilot, you can automatically sell the pilot as a slave at the market.
So how does this work in the remake?
If tracker beam a pilot into the ship what do you do...
Are the Righteous Fire (RF) missions and RF ship upgrades in the remake?
Do I have to finish the original missions first in order access the RF upgrades?
Or can I buy these RF upgrades in the original missions?
What was the first Wing Commander game you played?
I remember the first Wing Command game I played was Wing Commander II on my 386 with just the PC speakers. Eventually I did get a 8 bit sound card later on and I was knocked off my feet when the character started to talk!
The game was...
I have to comment on the new nav system. The symbols representing the planets and jump gates look very large and chucky---like playschool shapes.
It was not a wise decision to use white texts on light grey buttons because it makes it impossible to read.
I have to admit the original nav...
For the ship there are two features that can be improved: the armor and the hull.
What is the difference between the armor and hull?
In the original game you could just purchase armor for the ship and that was it.
In the original privateer there's a PDA where you can access it on the stations.
At the start you could create yourself a callsign. In the game you could view your cargo, credits and save/load game.
What happen to this in this remake?
When I set to a high resolution 1024x768 I get a small screen size when I'm inside a space station, or world. The colour is set at 32bit full screen.
The screen is normal size when I'm in space.
How can I make the screen larger at a high resolution?
