Cool How many Amiga Users were/are Fans of Wing Commander

How many Amiga Users were/are Wing Commander´s Fans

Ps: The 12th option is repeated by mistake, if anyone with the proper access can disable it i would be very apreciated!

WING COMMANDER IS TEH ROXXORZ!!!!!!


I love this game, and games as well as the movie, although they chose the wrong star actor Fredy prince jnr.

but it did have

Tchéky Karyo (Taggart) and Jürgen Prochnow (Cmdr. Paul Gerald) both in my top 10 actors list!!!

the only wing I like is chicken wing yakitori

seriously, I remember my pc buddy showing off with this game and his vga card. it had some cool animated cutscenes I remember. but when I got the amiga version i was really frustrated as it was quite painful to play. so I got back to nuking montezuma's ass at civ very soon

later, I got a pc too, but it was then tie fighter time

Privateer 1 was remade by some fans and is freely distributed.
It runs on Xp and Vista and the space missions are now all in 3D (including ship cockpits).
Here is a screenshot and a link for direct download.

My friend used to show off his ultra fast 166 Mhz 586 with WC3 and 4! But I never really got into them much.

I was looking forward to the Amiga version of Wing Commander 1 in a BIG way once i saw the PC screenshots, but this was before the game was even released and was first announced at which point it was going under the name of Wing Leader until they changed the name.

In the end though i lost interest in waiting for the Amiga version until i got my A1200 and it finally arrived, and i really really liked it!..

:eek i can only imagine how painfully slow that must of been!!!

020 with a smidge of fast m8... or an 030... watch out for the asteroids... they come up QUICK... cut your speed to around 220 KPS or you will know DOOM!!!!

now that i think of it there is a revised version for the CD32 that has a few patches that makes it work for the A1200 its a much better version so I am led to believe, with more draw frames in it and a proper C2P engine
