Original Xwing Edit
Sorry if this doesn't belong in this forum, but I want to go back and play the original x-wing and Tie games, but I really don't wanna have the same frustration I got from trying to beat it the first what i wanted to know is is there any way to edit the games files....either to make the ships stronger, or edit the game so that you can use the in game cheats and still play through. I've checked everywhere I know of to try to find something but I just can't. thanks in advance.

Edit: You may be in luck, mduncan50. I found a DOS version pilot file editor called XWEDIT listed here (it's actually a mission editor, but it also contains a pilot file editor). It may need an emulator to run on Windows XP, so I would also get something like DOSBox. To convert the .plt file between the DOS and Windows formats, be sure to also visit the CRS Morning Star site (found in my signature) and hit the "Flight Deck" for Neill "Ranger" Magill's pilot file converter.

BTW, the Morning Star site also has mission hints in the "Tactical" section if you'd rather only edit the .plt file as a last resort. ;)

Thanks for the replay man, but I was actually hoping for something more along the lines of ship editor

Ship stats may be edited with something like MXvTED (found on Darksaber's site), but that program's primarily used for XWA and XvT/BoP. AFAIK, it's never been tested on the Windows versions of the older games (XW and TF).

already tried that one...doesn't work with the older games

Was in an IM w/ this board's moderator, who's pretty familiar w/ editing all of the games. He told me that the ship stats are hard-coded in the .exe, so unless you're familiar w/ using something like BinHexEdit, you may be out of luck.

well I know how to use a .BHE file to edit them, but no I don't know how to do it without one.

though if anyone knows the address for the cheat checker that would help enormous
