wing commander 3 joystick problems

★★★★ Newbie

The joystick functions correctly until actual fliying of aircraft, then the joystick movements no longer respond.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

@Deathright2 @keilbasa54 Hi,

 

I have moved your thread to the Wing Commander Series forum thread within the Other EA Games section.

 

To answer your question: Once flying, try pressing alt+o and then select Joystick in the top left corner and then exit. The Joystick should work now. If it does not, press alt+o once more and this time choose calibrate in the lower right and proceed there.

 

Generally, for all available keyboard comments, there is a list here: http://www.wcnews.com/controls.shtml#wc3

 

Cheers,

Nils

Re: Wing Commander III crashes between CD1 and CD2

★★★★ Novice

 

Update.

 

I've opened a case with E.A. Customer Service but after the expert's investigations they cannot do anything for me.

 

I de-activated subtitles, I tried to mount the .dat image as iso and as cdrom, and finally chose a virtual drive letter which was not used by any of my physical drives. Nothing changed.

 

Nevertheless if my ship explodes and I choose Continue, the game asks for CD3 then plays the funerals video and the end credits and goes back to the main terminal. After that if I click on Return it asks me for CD1 and goes back to the introduction video and the first mission, and all this without any CD error.

 

So I will keep searching ...

Wing Commander Series and Privateer

★★★★ Newbie

I loaded up Origin for the first time in several weeks, and saw Wing Commander 3 as the free game. Wing Commander is my favourite game series, so I looked it up and bought all titles I saw, but I cannot tell if the expansions (Secret Missions 1 and 2 for Wing Commander, Special Operations 1 and 2 for WC2, and Righteous Fire for WC Privateer) are included or not.

 

Also, is there any plan to include Wing Commander Prophecy and it's expansion, and/or Privateer 2: The Darkening on Origin?

@sasamurai Hi,

 

The Manual is included within the main Wing Commander IV folder, after you installed the game.

By default, that should be here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Wing Commander IV

 

Just look for the manual.pdf file in there.

 

Cheers,

Nils
