    I loaded up Classic X-Wing last night and got it working, just need to configure my thrustmaster. I think I'll need to do a system wipe to get the 3D installed properly again though.

    Anyway

    Back in Gold Squadron, we would pick missions (or create missions) and then post out gun camera files to see who did better. Any takers ? I figure once we get back in shape we can start some PFF X-Wing Alliance competitions...pick your sides. Rebellion, Imperial, or "Independant".

    You know Talon Squad is more than up for this challenge. Only problem is I have classic TIE Fighter, but not the original X-Wing.

    I can't get TIE Fighter to work because of my directX issues...Voodoo 5 was never updated for XP officially :( I can get after market drivers...but it's been a fight.

    anyway

    I can give you one of my legally bought CD's IA.

    What are the system requirements? I could imagine that my computer could tolerate it, as the game is probably one of the only ones that is almost as old, or older than my 3-year old PC.

    Here's my important gaming specs that my PC is running. Don't laugh, please...

    29-39 GB left out of my 40 GB

    ATI 3D Rage IIc AGP Graphics card with 4MB SDRAM

    400 MHz Celeron

    Assuming that the sound card is basic Sound Blaster

    Also, I will be helping out on the Rebellion.

    I've got TIE Fighter on CD, as opposed to the old disks. Same for everyone else as well?

    I sent in a tech support request to Thrustmaster to see if they can get it to work with XP...damn hardware abstraction layer :) I'm thinking if I wipe my system, just install a win98 partition with a gig or so to play it, that way I could run the DOS version of the CD instead...I really like the adapting Midi music better than the pre-recorded digital crap. Nothing like hearing it in mid-dogfight switch to a rising crescendo of the Imperial march to let you know that ISD Invincible just jumped in to say "Howdy"

    Hey Kev... I don't have any more legal copies to give away, you'll have to see if you can find it in a bargain bin somewhere. It's a 2 disc set call the X-Wing Collector's series, it has X-Wing, TIE Fighter, and X-Wing vs TIE Fighter Flight School. It was made for win 95/98, your computer will be fine.


    So what say, we start the competition on Monday February 16 ? Then have the usual 1 week to fly a mission (as many times as you want) then submit the best gun camera footage ?



    EDIT

    Toasty, those are great but don't work for X-Wing.

    Here's a thing, who all has X-Wing Alliance ? I think I have one somewhere



    EDIT 2

    WOO HOO !!!!!!!!!!!

    Found a tip saying boot from a DOS disk and load from there. So I just need to make a small FAT16 partition (yay Drive manager) and load my .f22 files there. We're back in business :D

    Well if I can get my full 3D working, I'll be glad to mix it up on there, gives more options for missions and craft.

    MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

    Sounds like an EXCELLENT idea. Hey Void....if you need a new video card. Give me a call at my store. I can take care of ALL of your personal computing needs (please forgive the shameless plug for my store). the number is 623-487-7053.


    :D

    No money :( Otherwise I've spec'ed out a new P4 system already to build :)

    The video card is just fine, They just never made win XP drivers for it so I need to wiggle things.

    Well, I suppose I was the fool to marry an X-Wing pilot in the first place. I'm clearly going to be losing him to the cockpit quite often for a while now. ;)

    Kev, X-Wing Alliance is a little different than what Void is talking about. You can buy copies of XWA at Fry's Electronics near AZ Mills for $10. They've also got a couple copies of TIE Fighter and XvsTIE for about the same price. I haven't been able to locate the original X-Wing yet.

    Great. If we play that, I'll be set. Meanwhile, I'll be looking for what void has in mind. And for a download of a Miy'Til Fighter. :D

    I certainly wouldn't mind flying the Otana into combat again. I too own a copy of X-Wing Alliance. The Black Knights will emerge victorious , once again...
