    Christopher Blair Preps for Wing Leader Appearance (June 22, 2021)

    I didn't until you brought it up! I think the cheeks look a bit chubbier than either Hamil or Blue Hair, which lends to the CR comparison. Besides that, I like all the pictures where he has a hat or helmet on, while the bare-headed picture... not so sure. With the original Blue Hair, I always...

    A basic demo video of the Ren'Py Visual Novel Engine.

    Oh, it's just ripped from WCIV? Impressionists are people who mimic others' voices.

    A basic demo video of the Ren'Py Visual Novel Engine.

    Wow, that voice acting! Can you go into details about how you achieved that? Machine learning? Sampling? Audio manipulation? Just being a great impressionist? A mix of the above?

    WC Uprez Unity3d Doodle! (Heavy GIF Use, Mobile Users Beware!)

    Hmmm. I wonder if you can figure out some way to spice up the reticle. Contrasted with all the awesome improvements the classic reticle looks a bit flat and painted on in comparison.

    WC Uprez Unity3d Doodle! (Heavy GIF Use, Mobile Users Beware!)

    Just stopped by (after an eight year posting absence) to say: This is awesome. In the future I might be able to lend a hand with programming if you're looking any for help. For the foreseeable future I'm frantically getting a KS together though. It looks like you're doing just fine on your own...

    BIG NEWS: Wing Commander I Source Code Archived! (August 26, 2011)

    The source code isn't the same as the actual game content though. There are tons of old games that have source ports -- quite a few of them on GOG -- that still require the original game files to play. Giving out the source does not mean giving out the game, and could even make the game more...

    Saga Releases Final Destroyer Shots (May 24, 2010)

    I don't think that's right. If you change your brightness in mid-project you're going to need to recalibrate your display. I've never heard of this method before, and only very rarely hear anybody recommending a luminance outside of 80-150cd/m2, with 120cd/m2 being most commonly used. There's a...

    Saga Releases Final Destroyer Shots (May 24, 2010)

    Pretty much any serious photo-shopper or graphic artist will turn the brightness waaayyy down. I'm not a serious graphics artist by any stretch of the imagination, but I do like not being blinded all the same ;) @scoobydoo Yeah, that looks perfectly fine in terms of brightness. In terms of the...

    Yeah, that looks better.

    Saga Releases Final Destroyer Shots (May 24, 2010)

    The ship definitely looks better that way. Background bloom is a bit much though.

    Saga Releases Final Destroyer Shots (May 24, 2010)

    It *is* dark, and the 2nd picture almost looks like cell shading thanks to the thick black edges. Everything is viewable on my semi-calibrated HP LP2475w though, which is a moderately expensive IPS display. Most LCD monitors have default settings that are far too bright, so that they'll stand...

    They just posted up some torrent files and an extractor for those who don't want to use MTX here

    Miner Wars

    The cockpit and mention of mines remind me of Descent. The video on their home page looks nifty -- I wonder if that hollowed out asteroid is procedurally generated? I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.

    BREAKING NEWS: First Arena Screenshots! (February 22, 2007)

    The press release does say "multiple-teams" so it's possible that there's support for more than two teams in a game. That would certainly be cool!

    BREAKING NEWS: First Arena Screenshots! (February 22, 2007)

    All the fighters in the screen shots look too tiny to make any educated claim about how good they look. personally, I think that from what I've seen that they look like cardboard cutouts, but it's possible that they're LODed and look better up close. The cap ships seem to look ugly when you're...

    BREAKING NEWS: First Arena Screenshots! (February 22, 2007)

    So, its a 2D shooter with a cool innovation for moving up and down on a limited 3rd axis. In that case, I'm very interested to see how this innovation affects the core gameplay. Do you have any idea how the 3rd axis affects the aiming system?

    BREAKING NEWS: First Arena Screenshots! (February 22, 2007)

    Looking closer at the screen shots (especially the last one where the background nebula is oddly mapped on a square polygon parallel to the capships) it looks like the game is on a 2D plane (or if there is 3d movement, it's extremely limited). I guess there is nothing specifically wrong with...

    BREAKING NEWS: First Arena Screenshots! (February 22, 2007)

    While this is definitely good news, I'm still cautiously optimistic. The game looks far too arcade-like for my tastes, and something looks off about the art direction as well. However, this is definitely definitely the best news in a long time for us Wingnuts... as long as it sells well. If...

    Six from Saga (February 8, 2007)

    But you can change the brightness via a command line in the launcher. I'm probably one of the biggest Freespace fans here, but I prefer the gamer brighter.
