W C P C R A Z Y The Insane Prophecy Patch v1.1 By Alex "Locke" Fong March 8, 1998 For those who claimed that Prophecy is too easy on NIGHTMARE mode... * NEW FEATURE - MULTIPLE SHIP CONVERSIONS! After a few weeks of tinkering with the Prophecy game files, I've heard so many people saying that they found Prophecy very easy... doesn't that kill the replay value of the game? Well, WCPCRAZY is a patch that I wrote in my spare time (over two days) which modifies the DATA.TRE. Unzip the contents of the ZIP into your Wing Commander Prophecy directory and MAKE SURE THAT YOU'RE RUNNING THIS PROGRAM FROM YOUR WING COMMANDER PROPHECY DIRECTORY! OTHERWISE IT WON'T WORK!!! Basically what this patch does is make Casey's life more miserable by changing all those Morays into... well, why ruin the surprise... apply the patch, run Prophecy and find out... =) This should work on most versions of Prophecy, if not all... if it doesn't, email me at email@example.com and I'll try to help you out. BTW, since this program modifies DATA.TRE, something screws up, you'll have to recopy the DATA.TRE from your WCP CD #1.
