    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    Personally I'd happy watch the cutscenes like this. The indie scene has done pixel art to death to the point where I *hate* it, but tolerate it in WC's case for the gameplay.

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    Mostly it just looks very static and too clean to match the FMV (which even without the film grain has other kinds of noise baked in). The models aren't super detailed and wouldn't look as passable in truly clean 4K, just look at one of the original models...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    For the game it'll be an option - that said I sometimes wish such things weren't. Imagine playing silent hill without film grain? Some games do just throw the kitchen sink of effects out, but most there was an artistic decision behind it. Our aim is to have the FMV and gameplay merge into one...

    Wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    Always great to see any updates, already it's definitely the best way to play WC1. I can't wait for WC2 to get to the same level.

    What happened to Blair?

    I mean an army of spaceman lead clones is basically the plot to oblivion. Unless my memory cheats they never really showed the army of Tom Cruises, just described it. It’s likely either budget or good taste would have kept it from getting too cheesy. Still feels out of place in the wc universe...

    What happened to Blair?

    I've always had it in my mind he came back. One I remember writing an e-mail to Origin to which I surprisingly actually got a response (sadly I didn't think to save it) and they said "we don't know if he's dead". In most media "don't know" means "definitely coming back". But also narratively it...

    Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Rapiers All in One Place (July 24, 2021)

    Depends on the creator, normally *someone* does care internally but when the medium transfers there's no guarantee they'll make the leap with it. Sometimes the company that holds the ip will be go to great lengths to ensure consistency in order to protect that IP. Of course when a creator does...

    Wing Commander 1 (KS/WCDX) Loader & Voice Over Mod

    Thanks for the update! And don't worry I know about lack of free time, there's been no news on the WCIV project as I've entered crunch myself.

    GOG Delisting Several EA Games (June 25, 2021)

    Makes sense. Dead Space is a certain big seller in this market; so long as they can get the review scores.

    Wing Commander 1 (KS/WCDX) Loader & Voice Over Mod

    @Destro any updates on this project? Been looking forward to doing a replay with it.

    GOG Delisting Several EA Games (June 25, 2021)

    I picked up the entire Origin library just incase. Does anyone have any particular recommendations outside of the WC franchise?

    WCIV Tech Demo for WCS Stand Alone

    We are planning on making it run on potato PCs. All the effects are optional and we've been targeting pretty low poly counts knowing not everyone in the WC community is a modern PC gamer.

    WCIV Tech Demo for WCS Stand Alone

    The main team (me, ODVS and Defiance) are all swamped at work. I'm in the final stages of preparing a VR game for launch on multiple platforms, so working pretty much 24/7. Work should resume soon, the dates vary slightly but we all start freeing up in about a month.

    Perennial Rumor: Wing Commander Making a Comeback? (May 15, 2021)

    Remakes I'm just not interested in generally, yeah the remake of Robocop and Ghostbusters don't spoil my enjoyment in any way - but then I wasn't holding out hope for Robocop 4 or Ghostbusters 3. A remake of Wing Commander would be different as it'd spoil hopes for a new title in the universe -...

    Perennial Rumor: Wing Commander Making a Comeback? (May 15, 2021)

    Like a lot of people I can have my enjoyment spoiled by something sub-par. The most obvious example of that is Aliens, one of my favourite movies, but knowing how Alien 3 starts spoils my enjoyment of the ending every time. Alien 3 isn't a film I enjoy watching and its existence decreases my...

    Wing Commander Toolbox

    You don't mean a source port. Data port? That's what WCIV Remake is, and is coded with the expectation that it will be extended to other titles in the franchise. Now what would be really useful for the wctoolbox would be intermediate formats. If you could just specify the game and get back all...

    Perennial Rumor: Wing Commander Making a Comeback? (May 15, 2021)

    Expectations are different for a full title. I don't think someone *needs* to be a fan to do it justice, a new perspective can help - if they were diligent and respectful of the material I wouldn't be dismissive of something from someone who wasn't originally a fan. That's a big if though, and...

    Perennial Rumor: Wing Commander Making a Comeback? (May 15, 2021)

    I'm can't speak for the other two but I wouldn't want to be responsible for messing up my favourite franchise. The first thing I'd do with that opportunity is bring in someone I respected to be creative director. I'd love to lead an official remaster though; polish I can do, both in terms of...

    Perennial Rumor: Wing Commander Making a Comeback? (May 15, 2021)

    I mean Syndicate is that game. Maybe it brought new fans to the franchise, but if so that feels like two separate fanbases. I'd turn your argument on its head and say *because* it has been 14 years the next title would need to be spiritually true to the franchise. After that I'm sure fans would...

    Perennial Rumor: Wing Commander Making a Comeback? (May 15, 2021)

    If the cost of getting Blair back encouraged them to go forward in time I'd be all for it. I don't need a de-aged Blair. When franchises try and inject themselves into the existing timeline it's always a mess. Studios are always all for it because they think it's the names of the characters that...
