Wing Commander editor extraordinaire HCl has struck again with an amazing upgrade to Prophecy. It has been tested with Direct3D and Glide in 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024, but should work at most resolutions in theory. You can download the Prophecy High-Res Patch (only 730 k) and view some screenshots here. He also has other neat tools such as the WC Movie Viewer and Secret Ops High-Res patch. What will he think of next? (actually he's working on a WC1 high res patch) HCl's editing site at wcrevival.de is one of several cool places to be for cutting edge tools and tweaks in the WC editing community. If you've developed something that you'd like to share, let us know! I can't wait to introduce high res WCP to my Wing Commander students.
Time to play through the game again!
Just kidding. Today actually marks fifteen years of continuous daily WC news updates. The last day we missed was May 25, 2003, short of the occasional technical issue that may have slightly delayed the daily news a bit. (2018-05-26)

The author credits the game for kickstarting FMV and next-level storytelling in games without compromising on the gameplay. (2018-05-25)

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown
Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!
