George Sanger, aka "The Fatman," has noticed a problem with the copy of Wing One available on Vibedeck: two of the tracks were corrupted. He has corrected the error on the site and sent the following e-mail (plus links to download the music) to everyone who has purchased the album:
The worst news, however, is that only 23 people have purchased the Wing Commander album through Vibedeck! Wing One includes all the music from Wing Commander I played with a Roland MT-32 for just $9.98. Get your copy today!
Sorry for contacting you directly, it's me, George Sanger, the Fat Man, I wrote much of the Wing Commander music.
You purchased "Wing One: Music from Wing Commander 1" through Vibedeck and PayPal, and I got your email address from the PayPal receipt.
It only recently came to my attention that two of the tracks on Wing One" were broken and didn't download. Hopefully, this was a recent glitch and didn't happen to you, but just in case, I'm sending out this apology (with ammends) to everybody who bought the download. Don't worry it's not such a big job--only 23 people!!! LOL (and I fixed the glitch on the website just this morning)
But to you 23:
HERE is a link to the two missing tunes (Soundtrax Logo and Fanfare)
Let me know if you have any troubles from here, and THANKS for your purchase.
(...and thanks for spreading the word! )
Respectfully, humbly, thankfully,
George A. Sanger

Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers
Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape
Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
