    Breaking: New Chris Roberts Game Announced! (October 10, 2012)

    I like the dralthi..er...whatever that double-crescent fighter is...and the stylized Hornet...er...whatever that hornet-y fighter is..... This looks like all the cinematic and visual weight of Wing Commander .... wrapped around a world that is the more-dynamic Freelancer universe.... The...

    Try to get the concept art of the CARRIER! It's a full-ship landscape-format shot. I saw it briefly on the /start page just after the personal note from Chris.

    LOAF, I just looked all over the CIC page........where do I go to send you money? Unfortunately, it didn't jump out at me. I figure I can toss you AND Saga a jackson each when I d/l and pay for it in the next week or so.

    FRED

    (RE: FRED and SDK) Fantastic news! You've single-handedly crafted an epic extension of the WC universe for all of us... I'll definitely pony up to pay for this and support/reward the hard work you guys put in! Much obliged!

    New Poll Examines Extremely Versatile Warship (March 25, 2012)

    I had to vote for the Waterloo. It had such a beautiful design, powerful specs, and was a great accompaniment to the Concordia and Gilgamesh of WC2. Incidentally, WC2 is my absolute favorite of the series so I'm completely, unabashedly biased :-)

    The Big C word.......

    :-) ... and when I read your post about loving WC, beer, and (uh) chicks... I was going to quote Maniac about needing to so some "bone-ing UP on your periodic table of elements" :-)

    The Big C word.......

    Youngblood... never a good thing to have diagnosed :-( congrats on the engagement!!! What's your favorite WC character? ...maybe we can start a running thread of "greatest hits" or "greatest quotes"

    Privateer: Ascii Sector v0.6.6.1 released!

    Hey, Chris... one other thing: JuJu, in his latest (he lands on Batille and is staring at, I think, a Nexus?) illustrates something I'd like to see. When in LOOK mode, could you have the cursor tell me what ITEM I've got it over in addition to NPCs? Maybe just SHIPS? That might be a nice...

    Privateer: Ascii Sector v0.6.6.1 released!

    Agreed, it made me wonder about a few things... example: He keeps having trouble with getting stopped by every NPC...I specifically noticed that (because his comment stuck in my head) when I scanned the manual and started using the "S" key to swap past them.

    Privateer: Ascii Sector v0.6.6.1 released!

    Hey! I searched this thread and didn't see any reference (with my search terms) but there's a series of youtube vids showing someone playing through ascii sector and it really shows off the game interface nicely. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rlm4r8zBHP4&feature=related

    Happy Birthday, Wing Commander (March 12, 2009)

    Let's see, it was 1999, I was a sophomore in college. I'd already been a fan of the game series since 1992 or 1993, when I got Wing Commander on Super Nintendo (and proceeded to play it through and through and through and through - I don't KNOW that I hit every mission on every track, but I'm...

    Need help retreating!

    What? You mean I can't be the savior of the world, taking nary a scratch and single handedly destroying the Kilrathi armada!?!?!? *pfft* so much for entertainment ;)

    Does anybody take the movie seriously?

    It'd be an easy pickup at a half-price store and well worth it! The movie was fun! So it didn't fit "neatly" into the canon, but who cares? I knew what I was buying when I bought that movie ticket and I wasn't disappointed, fair trade. As for a reimagining, wouldn't that be almost...

    Corvette blues

    The AI uses something like ITTS to plot its fire against your momentum. If you slew your fighter left and right up and down you see the angle of the fire coming off the ship change to match your momentum. The idea is to use something like a "weave" pattern where you minimize the time you're...

    Corvette blues

    ??? I never had problems with the Kamranis. I'd make quick passes at them and pick off their turrets one at a time. I'd certainly take some evasive action! Twitch left, twitch back (fire a burst at a turret), twitch right, twitch back (burst), then loop away and burn briefly to get out of...

    The Hardest thing you had to do in Wing Commander??

    Flash!? Huh? There's no scripted death for Flash. I've finished WC3 a few times without him dying... Do you mean Dallas from WCP?
