Wings of Saint Nazaire: Split from July 2014 Screencap Contest
why is this looking more imersive than freespace on not even half its resolution? THAT is giving ME the shivers!


we need better lighting, better 'splosions, better cockpits, better everything
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! *panic*

yes i know this is off topic, but my brain short-circuited

Sorry Dekker. This kind of thing already got tried by me and someone else a long time ago on one of the themes. I chose a debrief screen and he took a shot from inside FRED I think. Has to be an in mission shot. :)

It's called Wings of St Nazaire.

Now back to the actual topic of the thread, please.

Let there be moon
Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters and let there be pain
Let us begin to feel again

Not really FreeSpace screen cap contest related, but it looks cool enough to warrant its own topic. Let's throw it in Gaming Discussion!

Re: Wings of Saint Nazaire: Split from July 2014 Screencap Contest
the whole thing got a really weird look somewhere between modern space sim and super retro
i think it's looking really cool, but on the other hand the super low resolution is killing me already, you can't read anything easily :(

i agree with what matth said on irc though, the cockpits are way too big and intrusive
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

It's a subjective thing I suppose. I do, however, think the 'immersive' aspect of cockpit models has been vastly overrated.

I would love to get my hands on a working copy of that!  One of the first PC games I ever played, on my brother-in-law's PC last century.
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

If you have the disc handy, you can literally copy the entire contents to a folder and run it from the EXE. Works beautifully on Win7x64 without any modifications necessary.

good to know; thanks!  I was worried about 64-bit compatibility, especially if it had a 16-bit installer.  I don't have the disc but might hit up Ebay later.  I also added it to the GOG community wishlist.  :)
