XWA Graphics broken by FX 8600
I had to upgrade my computer and video card from FX 7600 which did fine with XWA and the other games and now it looks awful.

I have a FX 8600 GT and i cant even raise the resolution from the most is grayed out. Is there any way to improve this? I had hoped to reload and replay the entire X wing series but may have to give it up. I dont know why Nvida keeps dropping support for older games...but it looks like it is pretty much gone for these. Any ideas?

When i first installed the game and added the XWAUpdate pack of improved ships i got basic polygons and no texture mapping at all int he hanger it was like a nightmare. so i unloaded and am trying with just the vanilla game but it is pixilated to heck, with little squares all over the station exterior and the ships.

Search for "XWA Hacker" on the XWA Upgrade might help. :)

A simpler fix might be to find the file ddraw.dll (I believe it's been posted about here), download it, and place it in the same folder as the game's executable.

OK Thanks Wildstar, i have since had to upgrade to a 9000 series FX card so i hope this dddraw dll will help. i found it and will try what you advise. thanks again. With the great improved ship models and many more improvements I really hope to be able to see all of this great game soon.

UPDATE : there is a fix a patcher and also the direct draw dll will help. Info on the X Wing Alliance Upgrade forum in the technical section in a sticky. Go to the latest pages to get it.
