Official Overview

You may be the hottest pilot in the fleet, but this will cool your jets! In Wing Commander you blast your way through the Vega Campaign. You’d better be as good as your reputation because the stakes are too high to play it safe. Just when you think that the action can’t get any more intense, or the opposition any stiffer, you’ll plunge into Wing Commander II. Disgraced and unjustly court-martialed, you have to prove yourself once again and earn the respect of the Confederation High Command. Of course, there is also the little matter of preventing the destruction of the Terran home-worlds.

Audio Issues

The Wing Commander release is configured to use Roland MT-32 sound. Because base DOSBox does not properly emulate this device, it is recommended that players change the device to the default AdLib one. Open the "WINGCMDR.CFG" file with a text editor and replace the letter "R" with "a552".

Dying Wingmen

Transferring save files from Wing Commander 1 into the Secret Missions may cause wingmen to show up as KIA; see this thread for a workaround.

GOG Trivia

  • Like Ultima 1+2+3, GOG's installer requires the user to install a new DOSBox.
