    I can probably help you get it running. For starters, you'll need to get it installed, and for that, you'll need the alternative MSI installer package @ http://www.markusegger.at

    You'll then need the "XWA Hacker," which can be found somewhere in [link=http://www.xwaupgrade.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=9625]this thread[/link], to fix the major graphics issues. You may also want to pick up the "all-resolutions" font fix found @ [link=http://www.lucasfiles.com/?s=&action=file&id=1302]LucasFiles[/link]. Finally, you'll probably have to kill the desktop temporarily through Task Manager to fix a color problem caused by the old game not being able to make the new Win7 API call to hide the Taskbar.

    The two primary mod sites that I know about are [link=http://www.darksaber.pnma.co.uk]Darksaber's site[/link] (for the "Ultimate Craft Pack") and [link=http://www.xwaupgrade.com]the XWA Upgrade Project[/link] (the forums for which I linked to above). As far as the UCP goes, however, you may not want to install Matt's Super Star Destroyer (the 17 km one), b/c Ol's mission fixes for that may have been lost (though you may want to ask that on the XWA Upgrade forums). The "Community Links" list on [link=http://www.xwlegacy.net]X-Wing: Legacy[/link] may lead you to other sites, but be careful...that list may have some dead links since it hasn't been updated in a while.

    OK, found the mission fixes at http://xvtedicion.game-host.org in Downloads>OPT Packs>X-Wing Alliance with the UCP itself.

    Hey this is the thread to ask...I'm playing through TIE Fighter now, but I've run into a bug where Star Destroyers don't ever fire back on enemies...is there a fix for this?

    Sesfan, I'm not sure about that particular problem, as I've never played TIE (spent plenty of time in DOS X-Wing, though). Someone on [link=http://www.xwaupgrade.com/phpBB3]the XWA Upgrade forums[/link] might know, however.

    DTM has added a couple of planetary environment OPTs...

    Naboo is a second release, with new textures, a new town, and a new sky...and playable at maximum resolution.

    Hoth is a simple environment, but released in conjunction with the OPT are the re-done AT-AT and T-47 Airspeeder in the "Battle of Hoth" shipset from ATX.

    Screenshots of the environments can be found in the [link=http://xwaupgrade.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10302]release thread on the XWA Upgrade forums[/link]. The environments are available for download at [link=http://www.mtdindustries.com/xwa]MTD Industries[/link].
