    I just saw something on TV about this new movie called 2012. Not sure if it is going to suck or not but I wonder accurate they stay to the myth?

    Oh goodness I am getting old Pinback 🙂 I feel like that was just a few years ago that I played the original WC. I hope the do mark it with an announcement that they will be releasing a new WC to the series. That would be great!

    I contacted Jabberwocky the main developer and he said he would field some questions and here is the post I created here so ask your questions and I will get them added and I will add my own. He also joined the site so you might see your answers fairly quickly.

    Crap these imbedded images are messing up my style 😯 only on Firefox so far. I have to find some way to fix that.

    Fixed it!

    Some of those images look sweet btw 🙂

    Think I read somewhere that they are thinking about making a X3: Terran Conflict 2.0? Can anyone confirm that one?

    Games like Hardwar that are on planets are still futuristic in nature so I will include them. I think I already started a small write up on Hardwar and think I downloaded the ISO (which is free I believe now) still debating whether to upload it to the server since its a hefty 500+ MB.

    I don’t see why not add other space style games like 2D when the 3D games are pretty much done. This will be an on going project for a while so if anyone has any in-depth knowledge of a certain game please let me know and I will grant people access to the wiki and let them edit away 🙂

    Does that mean I won’t see you in Jumpgate Evolution when it hits the stores? Not too many SP only games coming out Pinback. But I have to admit some of my most memorable times were playing the SP only Wing Commander series… I still cannot believe they let that series die off.

    Wiki is up and looking for feedback on it before we start the editing 🙂

    I did some looking on that game in the works ‘Salvation Prophecy’ and it is looking pretty good. Here is some basic info on the game and people can go and check it out and give him some motivation to hopefully finish this project and the orge3d engine looks nice.

    And the only video I could find and it shows off a lot of gameplay.

    Kal, have you tried this one out? I was in the beta and played a bit of E&B a few years back and liked it. I thought the emulator is only to simulate the single player experience is that right or did they finally get a multiplayer server running? Instead of just closing the game and calling it quits they should have released the source to let the community take over.

    Glad to know I helped then! Might you be able to post a few screens? One of the principle characteristics identifying star wraith (1) is the lack of cockpit (à la WC4). Also, I do believe that screens and possibly a demo/incomplete version of this was contained in the original darkbasic creator. 😉

    I can’t seem to find some screenshots online and I tried to capture some with different ‘Print Screen’ options and nothing I will work on getting some to put into the post that I made.

    Like our conversation on Heresy Wars forums Starlord, not sure if this will happen personally. I would be surprised if they did release it to open source. With the explaination that the game wasn’t too close to being done and with no work having been done in over a year and there game engine getting dated every day it’s not being worked on.

    Don’t get me wrong I would like to see this one come back and get made and consumed by gamers. But maybe people should embrace the vega strike engine more and create more projects because anyone can start using that right now and the engine is actually pretty damn good.

    I saw where binaryman was coming from about the code and once you release it to GNU you can no longer use it or least charge for the same code etc… so I guess this is entirely up to the code holders and whether they are willing to part with there work for free 🙂

    We’ll see though

    I just setup the Wiki yesterday on my day off and now i need to figure out how to use it 🙂 But I wanted to be able to have to categories:

    1) Game Reviews (self explanatory)

    2) Game knowledge library (used to gather info on all space games published… what a feat that will be)

    Since I have never configured or used a wiki I have a bit of a learning curve on this and will probably take me at least 1-2wks to figure out the ins/outs of the software. So if there is anyone that has experience with MediaWiki software please let me know.

    Pinback I thought all expansions and addons to EVE were free or is this a box release just for the UK?

    Hey Shefield

    Working hard here and trying to get the site off the ground thanks for the kind words and look forward to more posts from ya. I will add your link to my links area since it seems like a nice resource especially if they keep it going.

    Maybe if we band together enough we can show the devs out there that there is a fan base willing to play and pay for there games.

    Hmmm that is a good idea Pinback. I can go about this a few ways. Let me know what you think of the ways. I know I am limited on what I can do because of my php experience and there isn’t a direct mod for a reviewing system that I have found.

    But here are a few ways I could implement it:

    1. Install the knowledge base mode and make a section for reviews – (I would probably have to create a knowledge base group and allow permissions etc… so could be a control issue with people with edit permissions)

    2. Make a reviews forum – (This is the easiest to implement)

    3. Create a separate html style page and link to or embed all reviews on to that page/multiple pages. – (Not to hard to do but then users would have to submit and I would have to transfer the code)

    4. Install MediaWiki (http://www.mediawiki.org) and create a review area on the wiki since I have hopes to create a wiki later to cover the history of all the space sim games this would be something I will be doing anyway. (Some complexity but want to do it anyway)

    Any other ideas to implement?

    Thanks for the opinions and keep them coming.

    I am looking at a gallery mod for the website but need to wait until it is more stable and I also want to build more content and install the next version of the portal and phpbb3 before I add that because once I do the next version I don’t want to change the site for sometime if I can help it.

    I think it would have been nice if they would have shown more close ups of the ships. But the commentary wasn’t that bad at all.

    Well c0mas let me know that the ship images are what is going to be in game so the ship models are looking good. Wonder how long it took to create each one. Man I need to learn how to use some of these 3D modeling programs.
