    Anyone remember this series? X-Wing, Tie Fighter, X-wing vs Tie Fighter, X-Wing Alliance? Well, I got these running on Windows 7 and it's been so long, its like playing them for the first time. I could really use some help if people remember.

    Lol! These have to be the hardest Star Wars games I have ever played, with Bounty Hunter taking a quick second I thought it best not to start a tour duty until I've completed the training missions. I am stuck on the X-Wing historical combat mission: Rescue at Mon Calamari. I quickly identify two cargo crates identified as Calamari, but for some reason the Alliance doesn't board it, which gives the Ties plenty of time to destroy it. Am I missing something or doing something wrong? Does anyone still have the official strategy guide? What tips does it give about this mission? :confused:

    FYI, some breakthroughs have been made in OPT editing for XWA recently...visit the XWA Upgrade Project forums for details. :)

    Have you patched the games? Some patches fix mission glitches.

    The Xwing series is by far my favorite of the Star Wars games. I played through each of them and their campaigns (some games, more than ones) and loved it all. This is one series that I wish we could get more games for. They just don't make space flight sims like they used to.
