    Typo in ships for SWC Scimitar

    Theres a typo on ships for the swc scimitar - it says the scim has 4 HS and 6 DF missiles when in truth this is the other way round. - It's not just doubled from wc1! May not be a problem really given the pedia project - but if people take the info from there it might be :)

    Only one keypress recognised at once in wc1 and wc2

    Apologies if this should be in tech support really! I'm having a wierd problem where only one keypress is recognised by a game at a time - it's present in both wing commander 1 and 2, but is more irritating in wc1. Basically, in wing 1, if i'm firing and then start to angle the ship...

    wca speech?

    This is liable to be deemed unsuitable topic since it involves me talking about piracy. I've recently downloaded a torrent of some old dos games - mostly because I've noticed the abandonware sites slowly dissapearing and because a lot of these games are now getting on for 20 years old...

    confed handbook
