What works

Wing Commander I, II, and III all run and play.  All need WINE to report itself as Win95 (Including every exe file in the set)  All the bugs present in the pack itself are still present and reproduced perfectly (One 'battle victory' song in WC1 likes to loop a LOT, and there are no planets in the backgrounds of WC1 and 2... These are present bugs even in Windows)

What does not

Wing Commander III's movie audio is VERY choppy.  This can be partially resolved by using a native dsound.dll, however, it makes the video performance noticibly less smooth.


What was not tested

Did not play through all the games completely

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

If a native dsound.dll resolved the audio issue in WC3, without degrading video performance so badly, I would rate this gold.
