View Full Version : Reqs for X-Wing Collector's CD-ROM fro XP

05-17-2007, 05:05 PM
OK, I've had the X-Wing Colector's Edition since I was 5 or 6. I used to paly it all the time, however, I never fully beat it because of computor upgrades, and I got X-Wing Alliance. Recently, I was reading through the guide book I have for X-Wing and now, I really want to play it. I was wondering what I would need to play X-Wing on XP.

Most likely, a DOS emulator. DOSBox (http://sourceforge.net/projects/dosbox) and VDMSound (http://sourceforge.net/projects/vdmsound) are the best possibilities, with VDMSound seeming to work well with X-Wing (and TIE Fighter, I might add). You might want to check out this thread on TheForce.net (http://boards.theforce.net/Games:_Board_and_Videogames/b10005/12830230/p1/) for help in getting DOS games to work in XP. :)

Not sure if USB sticks will work with your older games, but you can ask in that thread on TFN. You might want to know that the X-Wing Collector's Series is a version of X-Wing and TIE Fighter tuned for Windows (though a compatibility fix for XP available on LucasFiles (http://www.lucasfiles.com/index.php?s=&action=file&id=653) is needed to use your 3D hardware in those games) and will support any game controller Windows does. You should be able to find a copy on Ebay.
