Today we are only launching the PC vesion. The Linux and Mac versions will be available soon. We just need to port the launcher to OSX and Linux and run some tests.

noooooooooo.....  :( :( :(

Is there any help you need with getting Linux version ready?? (don't have a Mac so I can't help there)

Anyway, personal disappointment aside, many kudos for sticking with it and releasing the game after 10 years hard work :yes:

(and what the hell, may as well download the PC version and see if wine will give me any joy)

Re: The Darkest Dawn is Cleared for Launch
BTW, when are you going to release the source code? There were some big changes to FSO in your version and maybe some of them (hopefully all) could be ported to main builds.

I have no idea, since we do not have the necessary hardware to test it.

It should, if they didn't mess with that code.

Just tested, Track IR is supported, just need to grab the scptrackir.dll available with the recent Media VP/3.6.14 RC builds . And place it as usual in the root folder of the game.

Congrats on the launch, I look forward to playing.

 
Re: The Darkest Dawn is Cleared for Launch
First off, congratulations on finishing such an ambitious project.  Although I had never even heard of Wing Commander before joining HLP you certainly have my attention.  The recent trailers could have easily been done by a professional studio.

I do have one question though.  Was the campaign done in both English and German?  The reason I ask is that the fastest mirror I found happened to be a German site ironically.  If I'm downloading a version with only German voice acting I'd rather stop it sooner rather than later.

Don't worry, the game is English-only... for now.

Re: The Darkest Dawn is Cleared for Launch
Is there anyway to change the mouse controls so that it behaves more like standard FS2, cause I can barely hit the corvette in the first mission. I wouldn't stand a chance against the fighters.
If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong

Re: The Darkest Dawn is Cleared for Launch
@OP: gameupdates.org (server-seeded torrents, you get ridiculous download speeds from them) would give you a good, reliable, fast way to spread this.  Not sure how you stand on the IP of WCS though... as long as there are no C&Ds and it's all fan-made content, I think you'd be golden.

Update: Comment-Hero Dominic White points out that you can adjust the deadzone problem from the joystick controls. I hadn’t really looked over there since I wasn’t using one, but a quick tweak there indeed completely fixes that control and makes the mouse floaty and lovely.


Sticky that?

Thanks, that helped a bit. Still not true FS controls but at least I have a chance to hit something now.

Heard about the release on another board; looks like the gaming media is starting to pick it up.

Congratulations, guys. :)
We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.
