Current Game: TIE Fighter
Playing X-Wing series on modern PC

Hi,

I have been attempting to get X-Wing, TIE Fighter, X-Wing vs TIE Fighter to work on modern computer systems. I tried it on win7 and in various virtual machines running XP. Should I be using WinXP, Win7 or a virtual machine (Virtual PC 2007, VMWare, Virtualbox)? How can I get 3D graphics working without having graphical glitches?

One thing I tried was a vm in virtualbox running XP. I got 3D graphics working right but for some reason CD music does not work, yet it works in vmware. Unfortunately vmware gets the same graphical glitches as in native win7. Is it possible to run these games with full features? If so, how?

Thank you for your time,

May the Force be with you.
