Sorry mate, but your looking in the wrong place. This site and forum is dedicated to UQM, not just games in general. One of the regulars might be able to help you if they remember any offhand, but I'd advise you to go do a search on the net on your own. Just type wing commander into google and see what you find.

Well WC 1,2 and 3 were sold as a set for Win 95/98 might be XP compatible although it is doubtful name "The Kilrathi Saga" For WC1 and 2 it does give u the option of invincibilty but where's the fun in that?

i was a little upset at the loss of lead character (cant remember name), the one played by mark hamill, in wing commander 4. it didnt sit well with me that he should bite the dust at the end. but all in all, the whole series was very entertaining. any one else play this one? how did the ending fair for you?

The Kilrathi Saga (WC1-3) does work in XP. Sometimes one has to activate Win95 Compatibility mode but otherwise it works without problems. With the Kilrathi Saga comes a Win95 Patch for WC4 which enables that game to run under WinXP as well. That patch can be downloaded anywhere for free too. (also on our site: http://www.wcrevival.de/downloads/index.php#wc4)
WC Prophecy does have a few problems with the video sequences which can be solves by deactivating the hardware acceleration of your soundcard while you're playing the game.

Hope we could help,

If that happened, then you probably picked the wrong choices at the assembly. Trust me, there is a good ending to this game.

its been a while since i played, but from what i remember, he was on the alien ship and the squid things got him. i thought that was how it was supposed to end. i didn't have the game anymore to play through, but ill check gamefaqs for a walkthru. maybe i can get the other endings that way. thanks for the tip.

Oh, in that case it's Wing Commander Prophecy you're talking about, not Wing Commander IV.

I have to say, Wing Commander was awesome but my favorite Origin game was Ultima VII.  That is probably, in my opinion, the only game I have ever liked as much as Starcontrol II.

I always thought the Wing Commander series was a little overhyped.  I think TIE Fighter and X-Wing Alliance were both extremely superior titles in the same genre.  Also Elite was the original 'privateer' game, and it did a better job of it.

Seeing as I always consider plot, atmosphere and gameplay to be the most important aspects in games, I still consider Privateer to be the best Elite-like game out there. It's incredible how much less empty the gameworld seems simply because you can walk around the bases and talk to people, plus the communication in space.

That seems to be what in general attracts the fans of Wing Commander: strong plot and depth in characters.

Oh yeah, I remember those Star Wars flyers. X-Wing was alright, but TIE Fighter just seemed way more polished. I've never even heard of Elite, though.
