Chris Roberts is making a new crowd funded Wing Commander-esque game.

Wing Commander was kind of my first PC game. I'll be interested to see if this gets funded, and if so how close it turns out to his vision.

I just want them to model the inertia and the physics from Jumpgate in their engine. I loved that docking your ship had a potential risk.

I remember tweeking my config.sys and autoexec.bat to free up enough upper memory to enable cockpit animations. I loved these games, almost as much as privateer.

config.sys and autoexec.bat would always screw up my PC back in the day
