    The 3DFx test is a different beast and is incompatible with the other renderers (DirectX, OpenGL...), unfortunately.

    So there's no easy fudge to change that? Other than installing a glide wrapper obviously.

    What about getting the missions to run in the other demo?

    That, on the other hand, is quite doable.

    I updated the WCP demo installer with a minor fix: I corrected every ship VDU image so that the game won't show up those pesky white lines besides them. You can download the updated WCP Demo installer here.

    Here are before/after shots with corrected VDU ship images. Before:

    After, with fixed images:

    If anyone cares, I just re-uploaded the package to fix the color depth degradation seen in the previous screenshot. It's all good now.

    on the previous point of feeding the missions into WCP proper, I can check the demo package and see how they were put together. It might be possible to do it as an Easter egg. Ib don't know if it could be added into the campaign without breaking the experience

    That would be cool! Does anyone know if these were cut missions originally intended to be in the game? Or where they specifically made just for the demo?

    I believe they were made specifically for the demo
