wow, I'm 19 now, and I first got that game when I was (thinking) like 10 maybe

anyone still play? What side? I was thinking of picking it up again as the Empire but I was never really good at it. Especially getting the hang of the thrust (full power, least maneuverability/33% power full agility)

what were your settings? How'd you control your wingmates and how the heck could you automagically select your Leader's target instead of setting him to a hotkey, and then scroll through all targets to find his?

My curiosity is piqued, lol (again)

I found it fun but it got kinda repetitive in the end. There were so many commands to memeorise. Nothing a Saiterk X52[ can't beat :wink:

I would play it more, but alas my joystick only doesn't connect to my "new" (ie only 5 year old computer), and I just can't imagine playing it with a mouse.

XvT doesn't play with a mouse. That's one of the reasons I didn't get into it really... I'm old fashioned, I like classic X-Wing with mouse and keyboard ;)

If you play XvT, this is pretty much a must-have. Not sure where a direct download link is, somewhere toward the end is the newest release.

In any game where I have the option to pick my Civil War Era starfighter I will always take the A-wing. I've ridden with it since ther first X-wing game. I'm a sucker for the quick little fighter with no real shielding, unimpressive weaponry all for the sake of being the fastest little blip out there.

I had TIE fighter and was so ticked when it wouldn't work on my newer computers. My only fear is that Rebellion will suffer the same fate as systems start getting better and refusing to allow golden oldies.

A tip for older games: Right click and when the options window thingy opens go to the compatability tab and tick the correct box...Works perfectly on my computer :D

I think it would be interesting if we hosted our own WoW for XVT...that would be fun...I'd be able to see if I can fly the old ships again:

|-o-| <o> (--o-o--) {-o-} _\|/_ o-0-o >-o-< 8-0-8 <:=

or, then again, you guys will just detonate me from the sky.

Nice! :)

Wait! That´s a Tie Fighter, a Tie Interceptor, Tie Bomber, Tie Advance (?), a Gun Boat, Y-Wing, X-Wing, B-Wing (?) and an A-Wing(?).

I personally always liked TIE Fighter better than XvT... never could get used to the joystick in either game, I much prefer the precision of a keyboard. It was the same when I played Descent too. Guess I just don't have a steady hand. :roll:

A quick note on playing old games; use Dos Box. It's a Dos emulator program with a gazillion settings to make the game work (especially the music, which is always a bit tricky). Still having problems making it handle Return to Zork properly, but I think that's the only one I've tried that it can't seem to handle after a little prodding.

I generally played as a Tie interceptor online, got pretty good too. Shields are overrated, especially against AI, just spin as you're flying towards them and you're sorted (In head-head cases).

X-wings were alright, if not a little sluggish at times.
