    All I know is I can't wait for the Scimitar.

    The War At Home

    Hey Lew! Great to see some stuff from you again. Look forward to it! As a sidenote - I'm a US Navy Lieutenant and an E-2 Hawkeye Weapons and Tactics Instructor, so if you have any questions on historical accuracy or anything else when it comes to the USN side of the house, I'd be happy to help...

    Defiance's Eyecandy Thread

    I agree with your assessment of the color schemes, Defiance. I was always more partial to the Silver/Green tones that Confed ships had from the 2650s to mid 2660s. That's why I especially loved your Yorktown model in WC2 livery.

    Is it possible that the confederation could have won the kilrathi war after the Battle of Earth without the Temblor Bomb or Behemoth

    Quarto, did that limit not exist in WC1? I seem to remember missions with more than 16 total ships - for example BiFrost with the Supply Depot had 18 total enemies, and then if you include you, your wingman, the escort Hornet by the Claw and the Claw itself, that would be 22 total ships...

    Defiance's Eyecandy Thread

    I thought the Scimitar had the most useful gun armament of any WC1 fighter. You could just lay on the Mass Drivers and it would take a while for the capacitor to deplete. And for most Kilrathi ships, five to six direct MD hits was enough. She did have the slowest top speed but if you mastered...

    My favorite Wing Commander fighter is the Scimitar. Yep, I said it.

    Another "Which WC Game Is Your Favourite?" thread

    Wing Commander II still takes the cake for me - I've always been more partial to the art style and music from the first two games and WC2 really draws it together with a well done (albeit predictable) story line. WC3 was also excellent for the impending sense of doom that permeated, which was a...

    What is your Wing Commander call sign?

    I started as Sylvester, which was bestowed on me when I went to aviation challenge as a 12 year old with a lisp. I joined the CIC forums the next year so that's what I picked and I used that pretty consistently until I actually became a US Naval Flight Officer. At that point, I switched to my...

    Concordia Hull # a homage to Enterprise?

    I always thought the producers intended/anticipated that one day their would be a nuclear powered Lexington, but if so, they should have done a bit of editing on the hull number.

    WC4 Mod For Homeworld 2 In The Works (June 5, 2006)

    I got in to a match 1 out of 5 tries. 1 out of three with WCIII ships. 0 out of 2 with WC1/2 ships. Here's the log info: Unable to retrieve UI (animated) texture () Error, LoadScreen failed to screen of type GameBalanceScreen when loading section GameBalanceScreen from file...

    WC4 Mod For Homeworld 2 In The Works (June 5, 2006)

    I tried the instructions you linked to - didn't work. I'm going to uninstall HWR and unsubscribe from all mods, then download with just HMW and your mods and see if that works.

    WC4 Mod For Homeworld 2 In The Works (June 5, 2006)

    L.I.F. - have you ever encountered the "general failure" error with HW2 in your travels, and if so, how did you correct it?

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    It happens when I first start the game and then whenever transitioning from different streams. It doesn't happen if I have the disc in the drive (and interestingly doesn't seem to be reading from the disc either).

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    Okay last question - I've got WC2 up and running but it still asks me for the disc when I start the game. I can click "continue" and everything works fine but it keeps asking for the disc everytime you change a stream. I copied over the streams from the disc into the streams folder but it didn't...

    Yep that did it. I thought I was using my 2.0 zip but alas I was not. Thanks!

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    I've tried both, including the WC2.exe that comes with the SO1/SO2 download. Is there a separate wcpatch or is it the same one for WC1? The wcdx dll is also in the main folder with the executables and I placed all the .exes in that folder while overwriting everything in gamedat with the SO1/2...

    Introducing wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    Okay - new issue. I've attempted to run wcpatch with Wing2.exe and it won't create any new files. I tested it again with Wing1 and it worked just fine. Am I missing something?
