Ive been banned after 2 post. The last post is...

Quote
I just played through both Freespace and it's addon Silent Threat. I really really wanted to play Wing Commander 4 again after i got done. I got it running with DosBox but the sound has pops in it, my joystick is unable to use the throttle, rool, and missiles keys, and truth be told it does not look near as good as I recall it looking. Then again Im trying to play it on a 20" LCD widescreen.

Anyways I gave up and started playing Wing Commander SAGA. Its a WC mod using the Freespace 2 engine..and it is a blast I tell ya! Its keeping me happy until Im ready to replay Freespace 2. I really wish we had a new Wing Commander. Not that Arena junk but a real WC sim game. God I msis the old days.

Thanks again to the SAGA team!

Daehawk

I log in today to reply to posts in the thread and get this..

You have been banned for the following reason:
Trolls are testing the fences...

I would say they think that you are trying to promote non-WC stuff in the WC forum? I don't think what they did is reasonable, but it's a plausible explanation.

But is is WC stuff. SAGA is a WC mod using the Freespace 2 engine. Original sounds and ships and all. frown I sent them a letter and also reported my own post so they could see it.

There's your problem. People still playing wing commander after all these years are bitter about bygone PC gaming days and have no time for pleasantries.  They have their moms constantly nagging them about taking out the trash/when are you gonna move out/when are you gonna do your laundry so you saying something like that to them probably upset the apple cart.

Yeah, let me rewrite the post as they probably read it:

Quote
Freespace rocks!. The Wing Commander people suck because they don't let you play their games anymore!

Play Freespace mods instead of Wing Commander! Anything that's come out with the Wing Commander name on it recently blows!

Freespace mods rock!

Both Wing Commander and Freespace are "dead" franchises; I can't imagine anyone would care if they were "competing" at this point?  Or perhaps I underestimate the pettiness of hardcore Wing Commander fans.

I was coming back in here to say that maybe one of the admins at the WC forums is doing double duty and is a mod here too.

Not to mention that the Freespace engine is now open source, isn't it? Maybe they're still bitter over the Wing Commander movie  icon_lol

In reading the response to the thread you started (here) it looks like your comments about Arena not being a true WC game pissed some people off.  It's very possible that you inadvertently stepped into a some sort of long-running debate or flame topic and that the mods overreacted because of your newbie status.  I don't think it was an appropriate response to decide you were probably a troll, but to be honest your original post comes across as if you are some kid because of your grammar and non-cap style.

Bandit LOAF rings a bell for some reason.

Meh, if there are people who actually thinks Arena constitutes a real WC game, well, I say shake the dust off your feet and let them be smile

I agree that the poor grammar and spelling didn't do you any favors.

heres what the latest post in the thread says..

Quote
PS Shouldn't this have been posted in either Tech or Saga forum?
I would vote for "it shouldn't have been posted".

Quote:
A lot of the inital poster's problems could be solved by using the Win95 patch for WC4.
Or a boot to the head.

I guess Im glad I wont be using that forum with shits like that in there.

It isn't a real WC game - it's utter crap. Yes, I owned it, and yes, I was pissed at what junk it was.

If the fanatics there want to ban you for stupid shit like that, then I saw screw them.
