Wings is it bugged or am I crazy?

I loved this game back in the day. Now I'm playing it on WinUAE and I love it, except it seems bugged or something. First of all I keep getting missions that says we've encountered a couple of monoplanes. Ok not so shabby, but after we killed those buggers the battle continues. I'm thinking ok, the intel was wrong but after I shoot down a couple more the another monoplane appears.
Im on a mission now where I need to shoot down a Gotha bomber that is accompanied by a single escort, while it's four of us it seems straight forward. I shoot down the gotha in the first pass but miraculously my three companions get vaporized, unbelievably but probably by that one monoplane escort. I go about to put it down but the mission doesn't end, infact another plane appears. It takes alot of time to shoot it down but I manage in the end only to get "mission failed" the base had been bombed. Come on I shot down that bomber in a single pass.
I don't recall this issue playing this game on good ol' amiga. This copy must be corrupted or something.

You might want to mention which ADF you are using for the game?

In the meantime try this version...

Wings (1990)(Cinemaware)[cr SKR](Disk 1 of 2)(Reel 1).zip
Wings (1990)(Cinemaware)[cr SKR](Disk 2 of 2)(Reel 2).zip

I'm using
Wings (1990)(Cinemaware)[cr Power Group](Disk 1 of 2)(Reel 1) and
Wings (1990)(Cinemaware)[cr Power Group](Disk 2 of 2)(Reel 1)
from planetemu.

Btw. what do these a2, a3, a4 etc mean after the adf name?

According to a quick google search.

"If there's more than one version of that particular disk image the others will be marked with [a], [a2], [a3] etc depending on how many there are. "

try the other version and see if that makes a difference.

Hello there Torquemada,

Welcome to EAB

I'm sure there are old threads around here which talked about bugged sets of Wings.

Anyway, you should use this set:

... Wings (1990)(Cinemaware)(Disk 1 of 2)(Reel 1)[cr SR][a].adf [CRC: B1A78213]
... Wings (1990)(Cinemaware)(Disk 2 of 2)(Reel 1)[cr SR][a].adf [CRC: 86542976]

Also, don't use PlanetEmu as the TOSEC sets are horribly out of date...

Use our EAB File Server instead where everything is most current

Oh, and thread moved to a more suitable location.

IIRC Wings does have one gameplay quirk - you have to stay in the air until all opponents on a mission have crashed into the deck, to complete the mission.

Probably not this particular issue, but it can lead to a mad scramble at the end sometimes as you desperately try to keep a heavily damaged (but not doomed with the twin smoke trails and flames pouring out) plane in the air until your last opponent smacks into the ground.
