How To Disable Kilrathi Saga SpeechMincemeat has a clever tip for reverting to subtitles in the Kilrathi Saga port of Wing Commander 2. Most of the earlier Wing Commander games that had speech automatically hid subtitles when voices were enabled. If someone was interested in reactivating subtitles, the typical method involved going into the game's installation menus and deactivating special voice effects. Kilrathi Saga's Windows installation has no such option, so turning on subtitles is a little tricker. Here's the method he's discovered.
Go to the directory where you have installed Wing Commander 2, (eg. c:\program files\kilrathi saga\wc2), go inside the gamedat directory, (backup the contents first), delete all the SPEECH.S?? files, delete all the COMMUNIC.S?? files.Pretty sharp! Speech can be reenabled by reintstalling the game or restoring your backed up folder. A similar tweak allows German DOS WC2 owners to switch to English.
Note: Leave the COMMUNIC.T?? files alone! These are the actual text files...
This will permanently remove the speech from the game and it will revert to the printed subtitles.
