These Are The Droids You Are Looking For Update ID

Wingnuts now have a way to play Wing Commander on their Android phones with an emulator that has just added compatibility for Wing Commanders 3 and 4. psx4droid is available on the Android Marketplace or on app sites accessible from regular internet browsers such as appbrain.com. There are currently two versions of the emulator - the full paid for version ($5.99) and the Lite (Free) version which allows you to play the games but not load or save your game.

Starman was kind enough to test out the emulator for us with his Playstation copies of WC3 and 4 and take a few screenshots. He found that the game overlays the controls on the bottom of the screen (an option that can be turned off), but that the program also supports bluetooth gamepads!

The titles were run on my Samsung Galaxy S I9000 (Running Android 2.1 Eclair) and I ripped the PSX CD's to .BIN files using IMGBurn and my original UK copies of WC3/4 which you just copy to your phone memory and then select the file within the application itself. Should be noted you require the PSX BIOS file for the emulator to function. -- Regards, Starman

Universe Map Origins Revealed in "Wing 5" Progression Map

Here's a peek at an interesting prototype of the Wing Commander Universe Map included with Wing Commander Prophecy.
