    I never finished the game, I feel bad about that.

    I remember being at what I tought was the final mission you hade some sort of cloak device that I didn´t know how to use. The mission felt like and endless amount of enemies just coming at you. I never made it.

    the trick to beat the last level was a bug or something. You had to dismiss your wingman when you were fighting the one cloaking kilrathi, then cloak yourself, then autopilot to the next waypoint while cloaked. You then come across Hobbes and Thrakath, but they don't see you and you can fly right past them down to the planet. then just follow the trench, right up to the target. It takes almost all your fuel. ignore the guys following you, just cloak. Then get a lock with the bomb, decloak, fire, win the game. the cinematic is cool

    yeah wing commander series was uberwin. I played the first two on a 25mhz 486, the third on a PPC Performa 6290. good times...

    I only really played WC3. It was on a Macintosh Performa 475, 25Mhz as well if I remember correctly.

    The game was very fun, the cinematics were awesome. Four cds! Actually when I think of it, if they had just trimmed the cinematics together nicely it would´ve made a better movie then the real WC one.
    Now I´m starting to feel nostalgic. The title was "Heart of the Tiger" right?

    i think so.

    how the heck did you get it to work on a 25mhz performa? I was having framerate issues even with my 100mhz and 40megs of ram. The video card on mine was supposed to be much bigger than yours, no?

    guess it doesn't matter. I'm getting into total anihilation right now, that game is the most realistic RTS ever made, total war of attrition. Get it.

    Well it worked fine... I used to play TA on the iMac. Damn cool game. Realistic, I think not. BUt fun. Perhaps we should play some day, but you´d probably own me, it was ages since I last played.

    I had a unit once, it was a big k-bot thingy called the "Raptor" it was very cool. Perhaps a bit overpowered.
