Stack Overflow!

This problem has plagued me ever since I bought TIE Fighter Collector's Edition oh so long ago. I sold it not long ago (at least I think I did, maybe it's still buried away somewhere) but anyways I was planning on getting myself another copy to relive the good ol days with my dual-boot XP/98SE system.

Now, oddly enough this happened on two totally separate computers and OSes - my once-top-line P200Mhz with 24MB of RAM Win95 and a Duron 900Mhz Win ME (gone now). I can install fine, but whenever I go to play the game, I get a DOS screen with the message "Stack Overflow!" and the game won't load. I've never seen anyone else with this problem. CD issue maybe? It did see a lot of... action.

"Now you will see that Evil will always triumph... because Good is dumb."

This probably won't be any help, but that happens to me all the time too. To make it run I'd just try running it from there and windows, back and forth until one would work, usually didn't take more than a couple tries.

Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

I have posted a solution for playing X-Wing & Tie Fighter in Windows XP here, on the Totally Games board;

Courage is not the absence of fear, it is the presence of fear and yet the will to go on...
