Playstation Video Extraction Tests Successful Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

HCl reports that he's making great progress on video extraction methods for the Playstation version of WC3/4. This is neat, because the PSX Wing Commander games included higher quality video than the DOS originals. This is particularly exciting with Wing Commander 3, which did not receive a special upgraded version on DVD. WC3 PSX also has full-color comm VDU videos, and HCl has already successfully extracted and viewed these clips. The comm transmissions were lower resolution on the Playstation, but are colorized instead of green-tinted. Here's a size (and color) comparison with the PC version. Playstation is on the left, PC on the right. Support for Playstation WC movies should be added to HCl's amazing movie player soon. The player and other exciting tools are available at HCl's Wing Commander Editing Site.

The Art of Wing Commander Arena - Part Forty Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

This is an especially cool one: the concept art for Wing Commander Arena's Boneyard/asteroid map. Check out how early the 'Kilrathi Head' was planned... and some of the cool things that were cut (including turrets and a spiral)!

This is part of a series of beautiful Wing Commander Arena concept images graciously provided by Gaia Industries. You can find the original article here. You can thank the guys at Gaia by picking up Street Trace NYC on Xbox Live Arcade!
