    Weird Skybox bug? Also can't install auto download patch...and other bugs...

    Hi, I just reinstalled Standoff, and for some reason the skybox in the simulator mission 1 is... two different colors, with a jarring transition. What gives? How do I fix this? Also, I can't install the patch, it won't download (where do I get it manually?). Also when I select Options in the...

    Where can I find the consolidated movies of the games?

    Hi there, I vaguely remember there being posts about different versions of consolidated cinematics from the games, like all of Wing Commander III put together to form a cohesive 'movie' that you can watch on video; where can I find the different versions of this? I want to help a non fan get an...

    Weird idea for really awesome mission in a damaged fighter... no sounds in space?

    You know how in some of the games, you had to fly a mission drunk, and the controls were impaired? You also know how the canonical reason that you hear sounds in space in that the cockpit simulates the sound effects going around you to increase your situational awareness? I was thinking...

    No Paradigm in Standoff -- Why?

    Hi there, I remember seeing that Standoff was pretty big on having lots of obscure ship types show up all over the place. It seems to me that the Paradigm is an obvious shoe-in for a replacement to the Venture, being essentially comparable to the Kamekh, also a Corvette. You could even have...

    Corvettes: Paradigm vs Venture?

    Hi there, I was wondering if there was anything in the 'Corvette' class of ships other than the Venture or the Paradigm (I don't consider the Paradigm a destroyer)? And I was wondering how people thought of these two ships, whether one was 'obviously' supposed to be an upgrade to the other, or...

    So we have some of the stats for the Priv 3 Ships...

    So we have some of the statistics and numbers for the Privateer III ships! At least a few of them -- is anyone working on modelling them up, fleshing them out, and perhaps adding them to one of the fan games? I'd love to try flying them against the ships which are their 'same era' compatriots...

    No canonical Confed battleSHIPS...what would one look like?

    So! There seems to be no canonical battleships anywhere in confed lore, for some reason. There's a Dreadnaught, there's a few Super Carriers, there's some Heavy Cruisers, there's those BattleCruisers... but no actual Battleships. You know, Big, Heavy, Slow, heavy armor, huge guns, maybe a...

    So has anyone extrapolated the stats of older fighters as they would be in Prophecy?

    Hi there, I was wondering if anyone has managed to extrapolate, based on in game performance and such, the stats of older fighters as they would exist in the Prophecy game? I would like, if anyone has figured out from the data files, to know what the "not shown" stats for the Wraith in Standoff...

    Help listing all the Ion cannon based guns?

    Hi there, can someone help me with ALL the guns that were based on the principal of the Ion Cannon, their stats and descriptions in the manuals, their stats in the gamefiles, from each game? I'm trying to track 'the evolution of the Ion Cannon' throughout Wing Commander Canon. Thanks!

    What path is the most book-accurate?

    Hi, I was wondering what the "closest to the events in Fleet Action" path is, and if there is a guide to playing the game most 'accurately'?

    Has anyone thought of upgrading wc3 and wc4 to the prophecy engine?

    It seems fairly obvious to me... update, trim down, combine the media from the various versions of, say, wing commander 3, to play in the prophecy engine with better graphics, keeping the same basic mission structure, maybe with tweaks here and there... I've been playing Standoff, and have been...

    So I started UE...whats up with Light Tachyon?

    I was wondering if the Light Tachyon's stats are correct in WCUE. The bearcat in UE seems MUCH less powerful than the one in WC4, and ergo, the Epee seems less powerful too. Anyone have any thoughts on this WC4 Light Tachyon Gun Damage 5.0 cm Energy 30 nJ Range 3,800 Speed 1,900 Refire delay...

    What was Confed thinking? Are they a bunch of Morons? A What If..? thread!

    NOTE: This is a repost of a thread I posted in the standoff area. I know there have been SOME, maybe a lot, of what if threads on this forum, but I haven't read any of them (I will be sure to, though! Are there any that are as thorough as mine? can someone link me to the better ones? I am sure...

    What standoff taught me (or: Confed are a bunch of morons!)

    Hey everyone. When I play standoff, I have a chance to fly the wing commander 2 / armada / academy / spec ops / some privateer era fighters with a relatively modern WCP engine. With this, you notice some interesting things about fighter and capship design, with lots of "What was Confed...

    Is this difficulty mod possible?

    Hi there, I was thinking of what would make the "perfect" mod to the difficulty levels, and this is what I came up with. Is this possible? easiest --> allies use good AI, enemies use bad AI, enemies have reduced shield, armor, structure, and/or shield recharge easy --> allies use good AI...

    Wait until bugs are fixed??

    So I kinda want to delay until bugs are fixed... You know, to get the full / best experience. Any idea when the worst of the bugs will be fixed? What release date for a patched/updated version are you shooting for? Thanks!

    So I just got Armada...

    ...And I was trying to get this Armada manual thing downloaded and running, from here: https://www.wcnews.com/manuals.shtml And it looks like the armada player's guide (not the pdf), is in some win 3.1 or win 95 era ebook reader, which of COURSE won't install on xp sp 3... so how do I get...

    Tarsus on scoreboard? Moreships "cheat"?

    Hi there, whats up with some people having a tarsus on the scoreboards? Also, how do I get that more ships cheat to work? is it a L a I a 1? I would like to try flying the tarsus like some people apparently seem to be able to! And any more (modded?) ships that it might be possible to fly in...
