  1/27/2014 12:41:00 AM - DuoMaxwellofAfternet George: Your fix worked beyond admirably, dragging Start.bat onto the desktop icon. It started right up and now only works with an occasional sound error that I believe is because my sound card is just a cranky jerk of a soundcard. Gameplay is fanstastic, exactly as I remember it (Though I daresay the years have given me a little edge I lacked when I was a wee lad). You have my thanks. ^.^
  1/23/2014 11:33:00 AM - George Hi, You probably only need to mount the game directory and run START.BAT, or drag&drop START.BAT on the desktop icon of Dosbox.
1   1/23/2014 11:24:00 AM - DuoMaxwellofAfternet This was, literally, my first computer game outside minesweeper and solitaire. I am overjoyed that it's now available free here. I have run into a slight snag, however. I downloaded the zip file in the hopes that I'd be able to run it from DOSbox, and I run into a wee error: When I get DOSbox to open it up, it gives me options to do a minimum install, recommended install, or maximum install, but they are grayed out and clicking on them gives the error "Unable to install from hard drive." I've searched a fair bit for a solution and have found none. If anyone knows a solution, I'd be much obliged.
  1/5/2014 3:55:00 PM - Andre HI, Thanks for the Games. But i searched in the complete Internet for the Tie Fighter Version from the "Xwing Collector SERIES" or "Xwing Trilogy". With better graphic. I found it not. Not to load or buy. Has it anybody ?
  12/18/2013 8:51:00 PM - Pilot Thanx for your help, Hermania!
  11/1/2013 10:18:00 PM - Hermania Still fun to play!! You will need dosbox for this game. If you have problems with calibrating your joystick, go to Dosbox.conf (shortcut in startmenu) and open it . Find chapter -joystick- and set joystick to -2 axis-. The Z axis (twist) and throttle axis on most joystick can cause problems as these axis values are seen by the game but not used. It messes up your up-down and left-right .
  10/3/2013 3:33:00 AM - AsIfItIs Recon, joysticks were the choice gaming utility in that time era! Not that I would know, I'm much too young to have played this regularly as a small child. I just like old games and Shareware.
  8/29/2013 6:59:00 PM - Pilot Does anybody know how to get the joystick working? I can`t select it (only mouse and keyboard works)??? Thanx!
1   8/4/2013 12:47:00 PM - darksidr download tiecdjoy from lucasarts then the ms sidewinder pro will work
  7/15/2013 12:33:00 AM - Petrodon It will work on a Mac right now, just use Boxer.
  7/12/2013 5:25:00 PM - Recon those of you complaining your joy stick doesn't work and that you want it fixed. 2 things - 1 your getting the game for free stop complaining and use a mouse and keyboard. 2: its 19 years old of course it won't work with some of todays kit. use your brains. Morons!
  7/6/2013 8:30:00 PM - Bronx Dear FREEGAMEEMPIRE, how much longer till you can make this game capable to run on a MAC> Also, I would like the other 5 or 6 missions added. That would make my day. Thanks!
  7/6/2013 12:57:00 PM - Prenex This was a real space adventure game! I remember that I just couldn't turn enough fast for the against T/Adv missions with my mouse and I had to develop a little trainer in asm that enabled continous truning when the mouse pointer was up the screen etc. to win that battles ;-) Btw to be technically correct: The game if not flat shaded, but it uses phong shading - a technique little superior to than that of used in the x-wing ;-) Back to the gameplay: I actually amazed every time I reload this and play a little that how much good game was it.... It has great graphics in it's time but not that was that sold it. The gameplay was just too good and I reacall that last week my friend has shown me a spacesim in alpha state with really much-much key combinations and setting and my first toughts was that "aha that was used previusly in TIE, aha... that also used previusly but with a more clear keyboard settings..." etc :))))))
  7/4/2013 8:03:00 PM - Bronx Do you have to play the battles to unlock the ones past 4, or does it just have those and the last few?
