Nice work! I'm curious as to whether you used a click-count or volume-downloaded on that, though. I had to try five different mirrors to get one that was over 150KB/s. Sure, I waited years for this moment, but I felt another week downloading was impossible to endure.

With such dedication and your "Labor of Love" to remake the best WC, it was just a matter of time before the good news spread out. I wonder what EA is thinking about this success? Although you don't ask for a dime, like many others I will gladly donate once you will accept donation. Contrary to what big publishers were thinking about space sims, we had always believe the genre is still well alive and just needed the right game( and FREE!) to give a new kick for the industry to take notice.

I have recently switched from an active Windows user to Linux, and you bet I am keeping my eyes on the Linux version of WCSaga. Keep us posted on the later, thanks.

I did only upgrade my AMD-386DX and 486-DX and repalced with several Graphic cards till Hercules Dynamite pro to play WC.

WC was tremendous and Chris Roberts was a genious and showed some his talent in Freelancer.
It was ridicoulous not to have any WC followers or better Chris Rberts style games.

I am no w41 years old and do play X3-Reunion but you guys made my day. I was proud to show my 7y old kid how the old school were passionate about games.

Thank you and you guys rock for this release.

Strange, well if it happens again, let us know.

Did you press F3 during a mission or in the main hall?

with a lot of luck 100k

At this point, unfortunately, I have to say that we have pretty much proven that a full-budget sci-fi spacesim has no market. At this point, even if we had made 20bucks pure revenue per downloaded copy (which is not even remotely likely) we wouldn't even have payed for our estimated expenses.
