Better Health Through Less Flavor
I found out you can play the cutscenes right here at wcnews, and they show that detail in the cutscene in WC3, when Flash lands the new fighter for the first time. The rear gear indeed stows away in the bottom of the vertical fins.
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to enlarge the video window or download the video, because it also shows a better view of the top of the engines I need, but I can't see anything at the size it is at now.
I may end up having to directly play it from the video files on the WC3 game disks if I want to see that detail.
I don't believe that would do you any good-WingIII's video was encoded at, IIRC, 320x200, so there's no great performance boost. The 3DO might have a higher resolution. I'm not sure.
