BIG NEWS: Wing Commander I Source Code Archived! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Thanks to an extremely kind donation from an anonymous former EA/Origin developer, the source code to the PC version of Wing Commander I is now preserved in our offline archive! Because of our agreement with Electronic Arts, we're not allowed to post recovered source code for download--but rest easy knowing that the C files that started it all are being kept safe for future reference. Our offline archive contains material that has been preserved but which can't be posted, including other source code and budget data from several of the games.

Fix Your GOG Sound Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Many users are reporting issues with the sound in GOG's release of Wing Commander I. Specifically, they are hearing sounds like chime notes instead of lasers blasts during combat. The problem is that the game is configured to play sounds through a Roland MT-32 MIDI, which DOSBox does not naturally emulate. We expect GOG will provide an updated version of the game in the near future, but in the meantime this quick user fix will repair the issue: open the WINGCMDR.CFG file in a text editor and replace the letter "R" with "a552".
