Academy Fan Mission Pack From 1997 Resurfaces
In the midst of many talented Wingnuts discussing modification of the original WC games, Shades remembered that he had an "unofficial expansion campaign" that he could never get to work. The set of 48 missions was included in the 1997 Chartbusters #16 collection of miscellaneous freeware on CD in the UK. UnnamedCharacter correctly pointed out that the files were in Wing Commander Academy format, which is actually not hard to get going. There are two packs of 24 missions, which is the maximum number that the game supports at one time. Simply backup your own savegames and drop in the files from either disk "one" or "two" into Academy's "missions" subfolder. They will then appear under the Load menu in the simulator mission terminal. Grab the pack here (55 kb zip) and let us know what you think!
