Odds are good that no one is going to help you out with regards to WCU. It's....a long and annoying story the history between 'them' and the WCNews side of the house. Essentially, it boils down to this: WCU wound up being a 'hey, look at our shiney new mod that has nothing to do with Wing Commanders spirit and everything to do with you praising us for destroying it!'. Or, at least thats my stance on it.
One more stupid question.
Do vegastrike based games always load so slowly?
Or did I do something wrong?
I have Celeron-1800 now, and it loads the weapons list while at ship dealer for roughly a 30 seconds....
