I've Got that Sinking Feeling Update ID

Here's one final mystery: a single still from Wing Commander III included in Origin's web materials that doesn't fit with the others... or the game itself!

Notice anything else? The file itself doesn't match the web department's other FMV captures--it's called "LSBD1170" instead of "STILL#" and is dated July 6, 1994, nearly two months before any of the others. The original scene from the game is displayed on the right.

These storyboard images were recovered from a backup CD containing materials belonging to Origin's web development team. They were dated November 17, 1995 and were likely planned for a never-completed web feature.

Spanish Special Operations are Extra Special

After seeing the Spanish WC2 that Christian Klein recently acquired, the next natural question was whether DROSoft had also localized the Special Operations.
