View Full Version : The Place to Play X-Wing Alliance and X-Wing vs. TIE-Fighter!

As many of you may or may not know, XvT and XWA were played on the MSN Gaming Zone. However, over a year and a half ago Microsoft "cleaned out" all the old games. However, there still is a place to play thanks to a dedicated gamer named Stressor. He's created a gaming client that can support XvT, XvT:BoP, and XWA. It's a neat place. All the old zoners now flock there and play in all the tournaments and wars that are STILL going on!

Here's the link to the gaming client. It's called Errant Venture. http://ccanuk.brinkster.net/xvt/redist.zip

You'll need to unzip it!

I hope to see some new faces to this timeless community!

How do you play on this client thingy? Ive unzipped it and all, do i jsut go into x-wing alliance and click on multiplayer?

No, click on Sample. You need to make an accout. It's pretty fast. Then after you log in, you'll be brought to a lobby where you have the choice of playing XvT, BoP, and XWA games.

What server do people usually play on?

The default server. If that is down, go to the next one down.

Ok, so I have errant thingy up and running and I'm on the default server. However, there doesn't appear to be anyone about...

Where's the best place to find out when people are playing?

I'm based in the UK so it's probably more practical to play with europeans due to the time difference.

Thanks for any advice!

All time zones are lumped together. You will most likely find people playing around 8pm to 11pm eastern standard time. (EST/EDT).
