Thanks for this CaptianKal
It will be nice to see people playing E&B online again. I know when I tried this emulator out a year ago it was single player online if I remember correctly and there was a lot of editing you had to do to get it to work.
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.
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.
For those that never heard of this title, check this out:
Parkan 2 which I think you used to able to get the English ver from steam?.
Was Parkan 2 ever released in USA? I can’t seem to find it anywhere and is there a version in English?starlord wrote: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 (ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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.
