The CIC is still running through a bunch of extra bandwidth this month, and one of the best ways to help us do this is to download the Prophecy DVD upgrade. With a few large files and some easy instructions, it's possible to upgrade your CD version of Prophecy to play high quality movies. The three packs linked below provide all the videos, and HCl's enhancement pack makes them work with the game. Specific instructions are available here. Even if you don't plan on upgrading, the video files can each be viewed separately with a program like VLC player.
Trade show season is here! This issue reports on Origin's preparations for CES, another important show... they'll be featured as part of EA's lineup for the first time.
A very special thanks to Joe Garrity of the Origin Museum for making this resource available and to Electronic Arts for sending them to him in the first place!
- Return to Sin City has the details on what Origin will be showing: "If all goes well (and after all, why shouldn't it?), then we'll be taking almost-complete versions of Strike and Serpent as well as the finished products of ORIGIN FX and Underworld 2."
- Origin Picks Up Killer Coverage reports that Wing Commander 2 is up for another Software Publishers Assosciation award - something Origin hasn't managed to take home yet. "Wing 2 Deluxe CD is entered as Best Arcade/Action, 'taking full advantage of the incredible capacities of compact disc technology and bringing the entire Wing Commander II saga onto a single disc.' Okay, it's a stretch." Dragon magazine digs up their six-star Wing Commander award for another Origin title: "Underworld also gets the exclusive honor of a six-star review on a five-star system, following in the footsteps of Wing Commander."
