Help For Untalented Pilots Update ID

Forums member Lin Kuei Ominae spotted an error in our Privateer 2 cheats listing. Further testing revealed some odd behavior in the NAPALM cheat:
Ok, I've checked it ingame and you get 10 Nukes with each "Napalm" cheat. The first 9 nukes are full nukes, lasting the normal duration of about 3-4 seconds. The 10th nuke however lasts only a second, thus it doesn't do that much damage and can kill only very weak targets (most fighters stay alive with 25-50% hull intact).
Here are the correct cheats again. Open the navigation screen by pressing Alt-N, then press F. Type one of the following and hit enter:
  • NO TALENT (Invincibility)
  • REP ME UP (Repairs armor and shields)
  • NAPALM (10 nukes)
  • PETY PETY (Full afterburners)
  • CHILL OUT (Resets laser heat level to 0)
Cheat codes for other Wing Commander games can be found on their respective encyclopedia page.

Classic Joystick Evokes Hardware Nostalgia

Dennis Mull came across a hardware setup from the mid '90s that's a pretty neat time capsule of the era. The Quickshot "Squadron Commander" QS-202 is a very early example of a Hands-On Throttle And Stick (HOTAS). Lots of joysticks at the time were sold as "compatible with Wing Commander," and this one includes pre-programmed controls for Wing Commander, Wing Commander 3 and Strike Commander. (2018-05-19)

WC2 Modding Leads to New Discoveries

Fans continue to do amazing things by digging into the earlier Wing Commander games' code. One of the latest findings has led to the manipulation of the screen transitions between segments of the Wing Commander 2 cutscenes. They've found that there are ten possible ways to wipe the screen and launch the next clip - variants of wiping side to side, diagonally and circular from the middle. (2018-05-17)
