    Trying to run Wing Commander Academy under Windows ME

    Just bought a sealed copy on E-bay (came with even the registration card, but the manual is on pdf) It loads up, doesn't quite recognize my CH flightstick and can't recognize the built-in sound. I'm thinking of trying to scare up an old soundblaster somewhere. Anyone have any experience...

    Download address for 1.1

    latest beta release a total disaster for me

    PostPosted: Tue Jun 07, 2005 6:55 pm Post subject: Current Patch rendered game completely unplayable Reply with quote I no longer get random colors before the .png files start to load. Instead, the view is shifted 25% to the right with black space on the left and a good part of the...

    betatest bugs

    Well, my registration crashed on the betatest board, so I'm posting here. The limited radar doesn't work the way it should in that your enemies still persist and still follow you from place to place. In Privateer, if they were out of range they also didn't spawn .... Changing to the beta...

    Problem solved -- misc bugs in RF

    Ok, I'm in the sequence with the good major (she hopes) running missions for the confeds at the beginning of RF. Having a devil of a time buying fusion cannon (they don't seem to spawn much). As I start my patrols of New Caledonia I get an error message and the game folds up on me. I'll...

    Green all over

    I don't know what possessed me, but I didn't get out of the fleet (in Privateer I always ran away from the fleet to avoid stray shots), survived anyway. But, I made the mistake of taking a couple missions in Oxford afterwards, on reputation repair. 17 retros and 17 kilrathi ... how in heck...

    Darn repair droid, other comments

    Well ... I did the edit suggested in the forums ... which resulted in my launching all my games as blown up, in space, or on the landing pad without a ship. Went back and deleted the added code and everything is back to normal. Bought a Kamekh. Hmm, flies only by keyboard, no mouse control...

    General Thoughts on the Remake ...

    Origins thought they had the ultimate game engine in WCIII's "reality engine" which worked for III and IV. However, they tried a different one for Privateer. That one had some interesting limits. It could hold only 66 docking locations, for example. On the other hand, they used it to...
