X-Wing

X-Wing is a space combat simulation, the first in the Star Wars universe. From the cockpits of X-Wing, Y-Wing and A-Wing starfighters, players fight for the Rebel Alliance in their struggle against the evil Galactic Empire. Unlike earlier titles in the genre like Wing Commander, X-Wing employs a polygonal 3D engine: flat-shaded polygons are combined with bitmaps only for explosion effects.
The main part of the game consists of three separate campaigns, called Tours of Duty. The Tours can be played in any order, even though they build on each other story-wise: Tour I, 'A New Ally', tells of the Rebellion's search for political allies in their fight against the Empire, while the Emperor launches Operation Strike Fear, a major offensive against the Rebels. Tour II, 'The Great Search' chronicles the Rebels' search for the plans to the Empire's new superweapon, the Death Star. Tour III, 'The Gathering Storm', tells of their efforts to find and destroy the battle station. Animated cutscenes are featured after certain missions to continue the story.
Each Tour consists of around a dozen missions, which include a wide variety of objectives. There are standard strike, escort and defense assignments, but also reconnaissance flights - just scanning ships without attacking them - or capture operations - disabling enemy ships, then protecting the transport carrying the strike team during the takeover. The game of course culminates in the famous attack on the Death Star.

  5/15/2015 12:47:00 PM - 420kill best simulation I ever played gona be buying this game. It needs to be redone in a pvp aspect not the knights of the old repub style this style cause a joystick is the only way to go

  4/28/2013 3:32:00 AM - Ben Anyone know how to fix the sound drivers? Been playing around with dosbox settings, trying to not make the lasers sound like fart noises.
  3/23/2013 4:35:00 PM - Luke Thanks for making this available, this is a real blast from the past. Runs on dosbox under win7, I had to tweak up the CPU speed (CTRL-F12) higher to get the game playable. It's barely playable with the mouse (I have no joystick) [dogfighting is really hard] but it is still a lot of fun!

  3/30/2012 8:34:00 PM - gunslinger you need to delete all names in the register and then register your pilot. then move the mouse to the left. it handles the rest
  2/14/2012 11:32:00 PM - Anthony This is one of my favorite games of ALL TIME! I downloaded it and can get the game to start/work fine - but I cannot get any sound whatsoever. I am a bit new to the site so forgive me if I am missing an obvious file or plug-in. Any suggestions - thanks!!
  1/29/2012 6:53:00 PM - xwing88 I am unable to get my joystick to work with this game. Any ideas?
  1/28/2012 11:30:00 PM - DaFool Both Chrome and Firefox require plug in to work, if you read the instructions on the site when you download the emulator it has links to these plug in from chrome or firefox site. However firefox seems more buggy with this plug in than chrome. Or you could us Explorer with no plug
  1/26/2012 5:08:00 AM - Imperial Sympathizer I've tried to play both x-wing and tie fighter but it just keeps trying to make me download the emulation starter. I've already run it repeatedly but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Any advice? Using firefox: installed .NET plugin.
  1/4/2012 4:08:00 PM - Andy is here!
  11/22/2011 4:04:00 AM - Christopher How do I back up my pilot?
