That's a bummer about attack squadrons. I haven't played it but I was looking at it and hoped it would be good.

Yeah but i really just want a Space Combat game.. I want to be able to fly one way whilst facing backwards shooting whats behind me.. Battlestar Galatica style.

 

I cant remember what game i used to do this in but it was always so much fun to kill stuff hunting you down when they arent expecting it.

I've heard that through some tinkering and modding you can get X-Wing and TIE Fighter to run on Windows 7 or 8 using the X-Wing Alliance graphics.  Has anyone tried?


X-wing Alliance runs on modern windows pc's from what I know, I am yet to try as I only just found this link

Hope that link works, my cellphone-foo is not strong

But still no LucasArts X-Wing or TIE Fighter :(

 

At this point, I doubt we'll ever see them again. :/

 

Star Wars: X-Wing (The PC game) turns 25 in 2018!  Geez, am I that old?  Anyway, I'm really hoping for an updated anniversary edition then.

I played a lot with Tie Fighter for PC, maybe from 1996. Lot of fun. I love X-wing miniatures cause it remember me the videogame.

Google X-Wing Alliance upgrade. Fan made mods updated all of the graphics and skins for the ships. It's like getting a brand new game.

For those of you on Macs, The Porting Team has both X-Wing and TIE Fighter up for download:

 

X-Wing: http://portingteam.c...lectors-cd-rom/

 

TIE Fighter: http://portingteam.c...lectors-cd-rom/

 

Simple as installing any other app and runs great. Hours of fun.

 

Cheers!

Absolutely. It's a gorgeous mod. The ship pack also adds the Tie Adv x1 to the melee mode, which is a lot of fun.
