    Got Wing Commander Prophecy Gold on GOG, but Secret Ops crashes everytime

    Everytime I try to launch it, it says secretops.exe stopped working. I installed all the usual patches for prophecy like the opengl and 3dfx patches, along with the high res movies, and Prophecy Gold works perfectly fine. However, Secret Ops always crashes the same way no matter what video...

    Super Wing Commander played with the 3DO Flightstick Pro (video)

    The unfortunate thing is, this game was just not well designed for the flightstick pro. They still make you mess with multiple button combinations, which is actually harder than the standard 3do pad since the buttons are spread out even farther on the flight stick. They don't even bother to take...

    I know this is slightly off topic, but i need help with Strike Commander's keystrokes

    I just got Strike Commander on GoG (awesome!) but I am having a problem. I've tried 3 different keyboards and they all run into the same issue. The + and ~ keystrokes register as = and ` in game. So I am unable to access the increase throttle increment and cut engines commands. How can I get...

    Got Wing Commander 3 on GoG and just bought a Logitech Freedom 2.4 wireless joystick, help!

    When I start up WC3 in the dosbox, it asks to config the joystick, I do it properly (joystick is working fine in the windows status screen) but in WC3 it constantly drifts to the bottom of the screen after calibrating. I assume I have to configure it in the logitech profiler, would someone...

    Anyone here destroyed all enemies in the Epsilon Wing (Venice System) mission??

    https://www.wcnews.com/wcpedia/Epsilon_Wing_(Venice_System) This mission was giving me tons of trouble (playing on Super Wing Commander). Eventually I gave up after killing wave 1 4 Krant led by Khajja nar Ja'targk. And the capital ship nearby. The second wave of 4 Gratha is simply too much...

    Here's the Super Wing Commander 3DO footage I promised

    I will edit this OP with the remaining 3 parts as they get uploaded, expect a new part every 8 hours. Unfortunately I decided not to include my impressions of the joystick in these videos because the 3DO flight stick turned out to be horrible for Super Wing Commander (It's great for WC3...

    Any way to run the WC: Prophecy Enhanced patch without squashed FMVs?

    First of I'd like to apologize for making so many new topics, I am just super excited to replay all the WC games using the flight stick I bought at Goodwill for $3. I tried out the WC: Prophecy Enhanced Patch to play it in higher resolution, tried 1280x1024 and it worked fine for the game play...

    Is Wing Commander 3 worth buying on GoG if I already own it on 3DO?

    As far as I know. The advantages I would be getting with playing the PC version would be being able to use my flight stick (I don't own the 3DO flight stick as it's rare and expensive as hell), and having better in game graphics. However the 3DO version has the advantage of better cinematics and...

    I have Super Wing Commander on Sega CD and 3DO, Wing Commander 3 on 3DO, Wing Commander 4 on PS1 and PC DVD, and Wing Commander Prophecy. But can you believe it? I've NEVER gotten to play through the WC2 story. Always wanted to with Blair talking about the Concordia in WC3, I wanted to know...
