I am currently looking at my CD case for TIE Fighter and on the front it says 'Windows 95/98'...and the CD itself says 'Collector's CD-ROM'.... I have the eerie feeling this is the one that screws up, but I have my laptop with me now and I'm going to test it out.




By the way, I didn't want to start a whole new thread over this but WHY THE HELL WON'T MY AVATAR WORK?! :x It wasn't working for a while, then Jahled fixed it, and now, out of nowhere, it stopped working! :x It's the correct size and everything, too! :x

So I'm not really sure. The X-Wing Collectors CD was a DOS version.
The Tie Fighter one is a Windows version?? And according to Gamespot it doesn't run in XP.

I seriously need to find a copy, haven't played Tie Fighter.

Well there's the Collector Series, 1998 release updated graphics using the XvT engine.

This is really confusing now hehe

Hmm...I could have sworn I did that.... :? Oh well, it's working now! :D Thanks, Trej! :D




By the way, I installed the game, but when I try to play it keeps saying that I need to install DirectX 5.2. So I went ahead and told it to do that...then another window comes up that lists off a few programs, all of which are confirmed except for one...the 3D program. I hit OK...it takes me back to "you must install" window. I tried again, this time clicking for the 3D to be disabled...once again I was back at the "you must install" window. So then I tried the "Reinstall DirectX" and back again. A LOOP!

Here's the 'you must install' window

And here's the subsequent listy window


Sorry about the poor quality. :oops:

Anyone know what I should do? Should I go ahead and download the dosbox?

If I read what this is correctly, it should be exactly what I need! :D Thanks, Evaders! :D

Now to test it....



EDIT: WOO YAY! That did it! The game is working (except for the fact that I don't have a joystick plugged in... :oops: )! :D


EDIT (Part 2): ...much less a joystick that'll hook-up to my laptop (damned little needle thingys that stick out of the place where the joystick is supposed to hook up into the back of the computer! :x ).


EDIT (Part 3): I just wanted to let everyone know that the game is working perfectly, no problems with the sound or joystick; thanks very much to Evaders for the patch! :D

Well I got Tie Fighter to work too. The 95 version, Collectors CD. Unforunately, I don't have a joystick here. So I'm using a virtual joystick program called PPJoy. Its not perfect, even with mouse and keyboard controls set, its not as responsive as X-Wing was (w/o joystick).

The main site doesn't seem to load the download.
But here's a mirror: http://www.simtel.net/product.download. ... ?id=75176+

Didn't you say you didn't have TIE Fighter only a few posts back? :? You know what that means?! If Evaders can get a hold of a copy of TIE95, then I could probably get my hands on a copy of XvT or XWA! :D

It wouls surely be easier to get a copy of Xvt and XWA. They are both good games. But both require a joystick.

I have a Logitech X3D Pro (I bought it at the PX--basically the Army's version of a small mall--for $28 ). :)
