I'm a big fan of the X-wing series, obviously. I played through X-wing, TIE Fighter and X-wing Alliance, too. I spent lots of time flying T/I in the Zone, my username was GSA_Shepard. GSA stood for Global Starfighter Alliance, not Girl Scouts Alliance or anything else
Anyway, hopefully I can get my new hardware & XWA setup fully operational in the next few days and so I can try duking it out in Errant Venture, for example. Drop me a message, reply to this or something if you want to swap ideas or war stories.
Btw, is there one XWA (or related) forum above all others? It seems to me that the pilotbase these days is more or less scattered around the 'net these days.
