MamiyaOtaru has posted a work-in-progress remake of the Privateer intro which has been created by Hadrian for the Privateer Remake project. Although only about 50% complete, it looks to be shaping up very nicely indeed. You can download the 22MB Xvid encoded file here, and comment on the work in this thread.
Hadrian just sent me an intro he is working on for Privateer. He has up through where the pirates launch their missiles. Although the framerate is halved for now and he says the visual look is not yet complete, what he has so far is stunning.
Hey, I think I have a version of the Righteous Fire intro that Hadrian made back in 2000 somewhere. Maybe the project could use that too.
