Thanks so much for making this. It's a great experience reliving these Wing Commander missions from when were we whipper snappers Keep up the great work and know it is appreciated!!! The only thing that could make it better is if Mark Hamill joined the project as an actor

This thread is really old and there was a lot of additional changes and additions, see "WCS+ (german)" in signature. We published the WCS+ engine together with our german localisation project "Wing Commander Saga Deutsch" in november 2015.
Regarding your question: No, the project for the international version is frozen, because I have not enough members who can help me and so my motivation is nearly zero. And our team is simply burned out.
