    Remembering Creative's Wing Commander Legacy (January 7, 2023)

    I had this Creative compilation disk, it came with a SoundBlaster card:

    Wing Commander IV DVD edition on Linux

    Hi guys, I've been doing some work on getting Wing Commander IV DVD edition (GOG) tested for WINE under Linux. I run Debian 12 Bookworm with WINE-7.21 and the game is basically fully working. I have the GOG DVD edition, it runs, joystick/keyboard/mouse all work. Cutscenes work correctly. I have...

    Wing Commander 4 modding

    Closest thing to a source port of Wing Commander would be libRealspace. WCRespace is a very very cool engine upgrade/remake project.

    Please suggest a Mac powerbook or Mac laptop to run SWC

    I started to write joystick support for SWC in Sheepshaver/Basiliisk 2. It works, but it only does X/Y and Button 1. I'd like to properly implement support for a complex ADB joystick e.g a CH Flightstick.

    My Money's on the Tbolt (September 20, 2022)

    Considering the Thunderbolt is a space superiority fighter from 600 years into the future vs Stargate's near future timeline, it's not that big of a shock.

    WC4 Remake

    Any chance of making the key bindings more like wc4? e.g Ctrl-O for options? I was stumped trying to find it before stumbling on esc.

    WC3 Win95 Patch

    The music change was they hooked up a roland Sound Canvas (SC-88) and rendered out the midi files as .wav audio, then they compressed it and bundled it with the game. If you play WC3 with an SC-88/SC-55 handling the music in DOS it sounds the same. The community could probably make a better...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    The Wing Commander 2 footage is pretty mind blowing, the AI managed to really re-create the details from the 3d ship models. The 2D animation imho was even more stunning. What it was able to do with Thrakhath's Armor is nothing short of stunning. Would love to see a WC2 640x480 remake.

    Is there an advantage to either of the versions of Wing Commander 3?

    The WC3 Win95 edition was released as a standalone edition in Japan. It's also possible to convert a DOS edition copy of WC3 to the Win95 edition. It requires the 4 wc3music.tre files from WC: Kilrathi Saga as well as the wc3w.exe file, and some .dll libraries.

    Wing Commander 3 as Seen From the 21st Century (February 22, 2021)

    Sadly, thanks to DOSBOX not shipping with an SC-55/SC-88 emulator, this guy will never know what the game should sound like. Bit rich to bag out the music when you've never heard what it's actually meant to sound like. Emulation sucks and is too flawed. We really need a working 486/Pentium 1...

    WC3Win and DgVoodoo2

    Why is space black in your WC3? It's blue in Kilrathi Saga and DOS editions? Afaik it's only black in WC3 3DO.

    Wcdx - Kilrathi Saga for modern Windows

    Force Feedback joystick support, even if you can't add it yourself, if you can give us the variable/memory addresses to hook the .exe we can add support ourselves.

    See the Screens of WC4 (November 19, 2020)

    Maybe there was a wartime shortage of Gallium so the Confederation had to make do without LCD screens/prioritise their usage for a while.

    WC2 Bug in Novaya Kiev Missions 2/3.

    So I just played Novaya Kiev and in Mission 2 I refueled when I was inbound to the Kilrathi Depot. On outbound I radio'd the transport and asked for refuel and nothing happened. I went and jumped out... Mission 3 started, I autopiloted to the ejected pilot and at the first nav point the...
