While I definitely shared LOAF's confidence, even I'm surprised that this came together in under a week. Popsicle Pete has reused elements of Gulikoza WC4 DVD patch and created an installer that allows owners of Wing Commander 4 (on CD) to take advantage of the DVD version's movies.
To streamline installation and setup, Pete's put together this exe (700 k) upgrade pack. It's designed to work with both the Windows and DOS versions. Simply run the installer and and it will prompt you to insert your CDs to install the game. At the end of the install, you will be asked if you want to open the appropriate folder to drag the DVD video packs in to.
It's just amazing how far we've come from the days when people needed to hunt down the entire Creative Encore DXR kit to experience this. Please test this one out and provide feedback at Crius.net!
I cooked up an small installer to allow owners of the CD edition of WC4 to install it as a DVD version. The installer includes Gulikoza's patches, so most people should be able to fire off the game straight after the installer ends and having copied the high-res movies to into the game's folder. You can download the installer here.
To be honest no hacks or new patches is included in there; all it does it automate a process of copying the right files and configuring a few things. It also contains a few files from the DVD version of WC4. The result is an installation of Wing Commander 4 DVD playable disc-less.
I couldn't test it much, please try it and tell me if it works for you. Comments also appreciated
