"In 1994, a revamped version of the original Wing Commander, entitled Super Wing Commander (SWC), was released for the 3DO. It featured new graphics, full speech and included a Secret Missions 1.5 campaign (between the original campaigns 1 and 2) with a follow up to Thor's Hammer in which the Claw destroys the Kilrathi shipyards that constructed the Sivar. Because of the full speech the player character is named 'Armstrong', even though the same year's Wing Commander III would see the character named 'Christopher Blair'. Super Wing Commander reuses several 3D models from Wing Commander II and Privateer. Several of the ships created for were later reused in Armada.

Super Wing Commander was ported to the Macintosh in 1995." —Wikipedia

I first purchased this game in 1995 with an English CD for Mac, and also bought a Japanese version for Mac a couple of years later. I continue to run the original CD on a G3 Pismo under OS J-1 9.0.4 with a few minor graphics glitches - Finder crashes and I reboot the application without menus to get around QuickTime incompatibility - but man is it sweet. Keep that system purely for this game.

Big Thanks EA. Now tell me, where I can buy this game. I don't knew, you are sooo greedy. This game is over 15 years old...really funny.

The site's contact forms never seem to have worked, at least not for me, so if you dig around a little you can find me here: http://sites.google.com/site/oldmacarchive/

ADD: assuming this isn't some spam ploy...

I wasn't able to obtain this with full packaging, only the cd and it's jewel case inserts, but I'd say its requirements roughly are a Quadra or PPC, 640 x 480 resolution, 256 colors, Mac OS 7.

Maybe I3loodTeeth has the official specs.

Awesome, thank you for the upload MCP! Smile

Does anyone know what the minimum system requirements for this one are?

Great game, I have the full version and will post it on the net somehow and soon. This game however needs G3 Throttle if your PPC runs at more than around 120MHz.

I used to have a copy of the Mac demo of this game, which came bundled on a primarily Windoze/PeeCee-oriented magazine: E2 (E-squared), otherwise known as Electronic Entertainment. They've since disappeared, like without warning. But they did provide some cool demos of PC games that were ported to the Mac.

With respect to this game/demo however, the game play kind of reminds me of Star Trek: Legacy, for both PC/Mac/Xbox, but a little less advanced. But the attack taunts and reactions made it funny as hell!

I always loved to open fire upon the home base, and then when I ask for permission to land in the base, the base commander said, "Negative, Maverick, do not land!" So then, I continued to open fire and destroyed the base!

HAHAH! >_<
