    I'm wanting a nice low spec game for my old laptop , but the last time I tried to play this game it wouldn't work on XP, shame because it was one of my all time favorites, flying for the dark side had a certain panache to it :D

    Does anyone know if X-Wing vs Tie Fighter is still available and if it works on XP? I'm looking to track it down if so.

    The version from the X-wing Collectors Series works fine on Xp. It includes all the expansions/TODs from X-wing and Tie-Fighter and XvT. The Graphics in X-wing and Tie-Fighter have the textures and models from XvT.

    The fact that deep space occupies most of the screen most of the time means the less than stellar graphics aren't that noticable. I played it a year ago and became the Emperors Reach in the inner circle. How cool is that? :cool:

    Its a pity most of the new games that come out these days are just eye candy. Some developers really need to play these old games and learn what story line and playability are.

    My fav was tie fighter. I nearly creamed my pants when i got to fly the mission with vader !!

    Trouble is, these days they'd only consider it if it were a mouse-clickfest, subscription-based mmo, with cross age/gender appeal, called " world of x-wing versus my little pony", with this brainless twit as your co pilot :

    I'm sure EA and Disney are preparing their cease and desist letter already. Shame that, was awesome!

    Is this 'just a shooter' or can you get different ships and customise weapons and hull and such?

    I need full RPG and ship building in such games.
