Asterix asked that I post this...
I have some news here about the voices in the game. As you may know we are going to have speech for each pilot for this game. The other characters will have their own voices as well. But what we need right now is people choosing the characters and making the voices. What better place than the CIC when you need a lot of people? :)
People can visit the characters list and pick one here.
Once they select a character they have to go click on "stats" (is on that same page) or go here.
There they will have the information they need to check if that character is free. Once they have the character they can start making the voice. The type of wav and where to send the file is on the "stats" page.
Here's the upcoming Star Wars toy based on Hugh Quarshie's Captain Panaka character from Episode 1. Quarshie also played Mr. Obutu in Wing Commander, so a bit of customizing may be just what the doctor ordered...
Various reports indicate that the Divx version of Wing Commander was printed and is available. If you have a Divx player, it's worth the three dollars. Also, if you have cold drinks and want to avoid damaging your fine wooden table, it's worth the three dollars.
Version 1.06 of SETI@Home has been released for Windows and Macintosh. If you're part of the CIC's SETI@Home Team you'll probably want to grab a copy!
There's an interesting interview with the duo who run ATFW (Motto: "The Space-Sim Portal") over at the StarFighter League (Motto: "The Online Space Sim Community Center"). Check it out here. (Naturally, we noticed this over at Lanced.net (Motto: "Provoking the CIC into giving us 25% of our page referrals")).
