Link fixed. It was a small problem with the name of the file.

Just to give you a heads up, the file for the game has an erroneous underscore mark at the end, so you have to edit the name before it recognizes the extension. In other words:

Vengeance of the Kilrathi.zip_

"[...]Where so many flight simulators are simple shoot-'em-ups like TIE Fighter and X-Wing[...]"
Whaaa...? Did the reviewer actually play those games? I did. It's WC series that is more like a space shooter rather than simulator, as the sprite-based world is "less 3D" (much harder to "lead" your shots or to track position of other objects), requires less "situational awareness" (WC splits action into waypoints that contain usually 1-2 our ships to be escorted and few waves of enemy fighters, or an enemy capital ship for us to blow up, while X-W gives us tactical challenges of hunting bombers while being chased by swarms of fighters to save our convoy, as that damned frigate made a nanojump and spit out bombers on both sides of the convoy etc.) and has simpler controls (where is complex energy management from X-W or T/F or a dozen of radio commands for our wingmates).

What the author meant was that WC is more movie-like, more story driven - this applies also to presentation (instead of dry de-briefings after a mission: conversation between characters or even a cinematic).

Whoever uploaded this game:

To keep people from stumbling into the 2nd mission crash bug (these who know the game already probably don't read the whole review), open a text editor, enter this:
Code:
@echo off
echo.Fix running
echo.
pause
loadfix -32 wc2orig.exe
(the first four lines are optional), save this file in the game folder as wc2.bat and rename the wc2.exe to wc2orig.exe. Reupload the game with this modification included and the fix is more or less auto-applied when the user runs the game.

Thx
