With all the work for the WCToolbox, I have observed and learned quite a few things about the inner workings of Wing Commander. I thought I would do a series of post highlighting this information. I suspect some of this information will be old news to WC veterans; and some will have no practical application as they are just curiosities. Command Line Let’s begin with starting the game itself: executing WC.EXE. There are many posts online detailing the command line options and cheat codes available, but I don’t think I have ever seen a post highlighting some of the following options: e|t|v selects the video mode: EGA | TGA | VGA; the appropriate files must be installed (you can have all *.EGA, *.TGA, and *.VGA files in the same GAMEDAT directory since they have unique names) a#|p|r selects the audio mode: AdLib | PC Speaker | Roland (for AdLib look into your CFG file for the number) For example: "WC e p" - starts the game in the EGA video mode and using the PC Speaker for audio "WC v a904" - starts the game in the VGA video mode and using AdLib for audio The following options are probably familiar to most and only activated if the Origin switch is specified: s# select specific series (e.g. s8) m# select specific mission (e.g. m0) as# select specific action sphere (e.g. as1) w# preview cinematic scenes (e.g. w3), scene numbers range from 1 to 22 (to 25 with SM1 installed). Mission specific scenes require that s# m# also be specified l launch single mission, no copy-protection question -k unlimited shields For example: "WC Origin s1 m1 as1 l" - launches series 1, mission 1 (S01M1) from sphere 1 (Nav 1) "WC Origin s2 m0 w8" - views series 2, mission 0 (S02M0) from the bar Note: From the command line, series starts at 1 (S1) instead of 0, skipping the training simulator series.
