I picked up and am playing the WingCommanderIV game from Origin. I am having a bit of trouble completing one major mission. The mission is M2, where I have to kill two enemies before they reach the jump point and jump out. I have been able to kill one of them, but not both. I have played this mission over-and-over again and still can't get the second ship. I'm just about to give up on finishing the game at this point, but would like to finish it if I can. Is there anyone that can help?

You might try www.gamefaqs.com. You'll probably find various walkthrus or at least FAQs for WCIV that might help. It's been years since most of us played, so I'd be surprised if anyone here could be of much help.

Doug, I asked a friend who plays these games a lot. Here's what he said.
"I remember it well -- he does know about
afterburners, right? He shouldn't be having difficulty with that portion of the mission. Tell him to select one of the enemies and get his
wingmen to attack it, then attack the other -- he'll end up having to kill both, but his wingmen might slow the other down. Use long range missiles like Javelin Heat-seakers to help."
Hope that helps.

I remember that mission, too. I used a volley of missiles to do in the one, and then afterburned to the second, and hit him with "combined" gunfire at point-blank range. It only took 2-3 gunfire salvoes to destroy him. I think it took 3-4 missiles to kill the other one, but it also made him dodge around and lose time.

Thank you all, I'll give those a try.
