    Database Slider on Website Problem

    Seems right. The webserver adds a CSP header that prevents that code from running. Who runs that website now? @Eder hasn't been around. @PopsiclePete maybe?

    A WC2 preview from 1991 (Computer Games Strategy Plus)

    You could get 100% compatible clones from a few manufacturers. Some even performed a little better than the Intel models. AMD's 386 would sometimes come soldered to the motherboard. They were quite popular with builders on a budget.

    Wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    Interesting. What about the Alt-Insert cheat that kills an entire wing or all enemies on radar? I can't check it myself since I don't have access to a CD drive at the moment.

    CIC Logo Evolution (August 18, 2019)

    Eagle-eyed visitors may have spotted that our logo looks a little bit sharper today. We've made a double resolution version available to supporting browsers. The leap in quality isn't quite as large as when the logo was recreated from scratch with WC4DVD footage, but it's a noticeable upgrade on...

    WC Uprez Unity3d Doodle! (Heavy GIF Use, Mobile Users Beware!)

    External images are served up through an image proxy. Those animated GIFs were larger than the maximum allowed file size, so Xenforo just showed a broken image icon instead of something useful like a direct link. I've increased the limit, but at ten megabytes each they may be rough on some...

If the game you bought on eBay didn't come with a manual or if your Victory Streak is missing in action, then the manuals section is for you. If you just need to know what button to press to...
