Kevin Caccamo continues to make progress on his Landreich Campaign addition to WC Saga. He's made the gun crosshairs resemble those in WC1/2 and added new graphics for missile locks, shields and other HUD elements. Gun blasts have a new muzzle flash and the Hornet can now 'Shelton Slide'. The project has even gotten a name, Wing Commander: Hostile Frontiers.
The next updates will give away some of the plot details about the main character and the beginning of the campaign, and possibly an interview. As a little preview of what's coming next, the main character's callsign is going to be Rider. Belated credit goes to Travis Baldree for the Hornet model.
Oh, and you know the reverse afterburn thing that Bondarevsky does in FC while escorting the Bonadventure on its kamikaze run? Although it's against just about every safety regulation, YOU CAN DO IT TOO! I added a reverse afterburner to the Raptor, thanks to a new feature in 3.6.12. To activate it in-game, press the decelerate key and the afterburner key at the same time.
Tech support questions continue to stream into the Crius.net, so we'd like to let newer visitors know about the CIC Tech Support Section. Detailed walkthroughs are available to help Wingnuts get every DOS and Windows Wing Commander game running on modern systems. There may be some new issues to work through with Windows 7 and 64-bit systems, and feedback from users of these platforms is much appreciated. If the walkthroughs still don't get your game going, head over to the CIC Tech Support Forum and ask for help!
