As of this writing Kaybee still hasn't changed their listing for Prophecy Advance. They still list it as shipping April 16 here, which is a good and bad thing. It's good news that a release date has come without being pushed back.. but where is the game? We'll let you know as soon as we find out. If you're still thinking about ordering, we've still got this deal set up with Amazon.com as mentioned here. Clicking and ordering here or on the right menu link will help us fund CIC giveaways at events such as the Prophecy Launch Party coming up next week.
If you didn't catch it earlier, Ross Ridge's homepage should be in working order now. His MyJEMM area here also features icons that you can use while playing Privateer in Windows (95/98/ME). Karl Frank suggested this additional tip.
myjemm _DOES_ work with the disk version of Privateer, but it is slightly more complicated to run it:
So to recap, this program allows you to run the disk and CD versions of Privateer 1 and Righteous Fire in Windows 95/98/ME. If you have 2000/XP, you'll simply get an error message. Strike Commander, Armada and Proving Grounds do not work because their implementation of JEMM is slightly different. If you're having problems getting your soundcard or joystick to work, check out Crius.net.
Edit: The newest version of MyJEMM is 1.4. Download it here.
The longest running active Wing Commander Club, the WC Aces turned eight years old this April 15. I'll leave it to one of the club's founders to sum it up.
It's April 15, 2003
Congratulations! When I was a new kid in the Wing Commander scene in 1995 & 1996 I can remember being awed by this massive organization of Wing Commander fans. You weren't cool unless you had "WCA-" before your name. I'll be looking forward to wishing them another happy birthday next year. You can find the Acenet Posting Board here.
I Just want to wish every member a Happy Aniversary. This club's lasted 8 years now to the date and I hope it continues to last and hold interest for WC gamers, designers and writers worldwide.
We've got a hell of a history, legacy and hopefully a hell of a future. I'll try to be on ICQ and AOL instant msg a lot today to answer questions about the founding of the club and the early history for those who don't know about it and have questions....and for the Aces vets who want to talk war stories. :)
Another note though...... I'd like to dedicate this aniversary to one of our strongest members....... Raptor. He's the man who's busted his ass over the years to keep things together here and keep the club functioning. He's HTL coordinator, mailing list manager, advisor for the new guys and friend to everybody. I think on this occaision he deserves some kudos as well as the admiration and respect of everyone on the list he maintains so damn well.
Please make a following post to his honor and give this guy a toast.
You ever wonder what it'd be like if they'd have chosen a callsign besides "Maniac." What would that be like?
