ok, so I got that issue fixed, but wtf is with the third mission? The ships you're escorting cannot follow a simple waypoint concept and suddenly your light fighter handles like a garbage scow and every ship out there is ten times faster. I think I remember why I never beat it orriginaly now if that's the way it's "supposed" to be.

Yes, I've made sure I am not damaged and have excellerated to top speed an simply cannot catch up to anything even with thrusters.

First things first. You should run the winstall.exe and configure the sound card to the settings you use in Dosbox. That should get you over the freezing in the intro. Then check the Dosbox config, maybe the memory is set to lower than 4 Mb (although i can't fathom that, it's worth a try).
And you could also try typing: ems true, and after that the loadfix -32 wc2

When I run the game through Dosbox 0.73 I get a problem with the voice cutting out , not a big problem in game ( although it is annoying ) but it also causes the intro to hang !

I'm running it with Dosbox's standard Soundblaster config - set Blaster A220 I7 D1 H5 T6

Thanks !
Hiho together,

got the same problem- by running the "loadfix -32 wc2" there are no voices at all and by running original wc2.exe game hangs up after the first word of the kilrathian emperor in the intro-scene.

Thanks for helping and please do not mind my english, I am little bit out of a practice.

Ah sorry- whoever could read, always is in advatage - I had to install the right soundcard with winstall.exe. Now it works fine.

I remember playing this game as a kid! The last mission was insanely difficult (at least for me). The plot has lots of twists and turns in it. It was a solid game.

Too bad that Wing Commander Privateer has no review here on Abandonia.

I did not play because the game was incompatible with Windows 98, Windows Me and Windows XP (at the time there was no DOSBox).

A curious thing is that the game detected the use of cheats. You could use invulnerability through the Game Wizard or Privateer cheat in the Options. However in any case, even if you successfully completed the mission, you did not receive any money (or credits).

It was terrible to use the mouse in space battles and to turn away from asteroids. The solution was to use a good joystick.

I do not know what my brother did, but the Confed and Militia pilots pursued, as did Kilrathi and Pirates.

After defeating the Kilrathi’s secret weapon (remind me the most common car in Syndicate game) using the Speltek’s cannon (right name?), the Kilrathi and Space Pirates stopped attacking him with the exception of the Confed and Militia (even with the thanks of Admiral Perry!).

OK. He has tried to smuggle in using the most powerful commercial ship (I forgot its name), but would that be a reason to be constantly pursued by the Federation and Militia? Unless you destroy the space fighters of the Federation and Militia, killing their pilots.

EDIT:

When I tried to play Privateer on Windows 98/98 SE, ME and XP, the operating system rebooted for no apparent reason!

Another fact I forgot to mention is that to destroy the secret weapon of the Kilrathi (technology from the Keltek and discovered by the Kilrathi?), the most powerful human cannons (from Fed) would not be enough.

I remember it was necessary to shoot a few times just to destroy 1 level of protection on one side! On the other hand, it only took 1 shot of the Kilrathi’s secret weapon so that all levels of protection on the hit side were destroyed so that you were well unprotected!

And it was no use for you to use human cannons along with the Keltek’s super cannon. It only consumed the energy of your ship. It would be best to use only the Keltek’s super cannon. In doing so, a single shot of the Keltek supercanon was destroying 1 level of protection from the Kilrathi’s secret super-weapon (looks more like a secret super fighter!). So, you are on an “equal footing” even if it (Kilrathi’s secret super-weapon) was enough 1 shot to destroy all levels of protection on the hit side!

Now, you must show that you are a better and more skilled pilot than the pilot Kilrathi.

After destroying the Kilrathi’s super secret ship, you can land on an asteroid and save the game. To return, you should deflect the asteroid belt. Therefore, it is advisable to save the game before returning.
