Question x-wing vs tiefighter

Hi! I was wondering if the old x-wing vs tiefighter still existed, coz i really miss that game! I once had it, but then accidentially ran over the cd with a wheelchair (no funny comments here). It cannot be bought here in denmark anymore, so anybody knows if it's available to buy online or as free download somewhere?

Did you try Amazon.com, the used section or ebay? That would be your best bet. Also you could try computer flea markets.


Great Movie, Great Game

I've seen it as recently as a few weeks ago as a non-boxed jewel-case bargan software product at Best-Buy and CompUSA. It was going for $9.99 I think.
That's how I bought Grim Fandango a few months ago. Nothing ever really goes away.

So edlib, how do you like Grim Fandango? I had great fun with it and the concept and story was very well thought. Grim Fandango surely is the last good Adventure game from Lucas... I finished it this years after spending 4 years playing it, I got stuck for 3 years in the same spot and I absolutly refused to use walkthroughs, cheats or hints. I never cheat when in comes to video games.


My mind is a swirling miasma of scintillating thoughts and turgid ideas.
Not to sound like a capitalist oppressor, but I have people who do that for me now.

I thought it was great! I've been getting everyone I know to play it. Very cool!

I used a couple of hints from a walkthrough, but I did most of it myself.

I usually hate using cheats too,.. but I also hate banging my head on the wall in frustration after being stuck for weeks. Vid games should be fun, not torturous...

I just ordered Douglas Adams' "Starship Titanic" (from Amazon.com) which I've heard is similar in concept to Grim Fandango, except there's more oppertunity for interaction.

I also just put in my brand-spankin'-new GeForce 4600 Ti 128 DDR. I got the Leadtek one. So far very cool!

Don't move or I'll sprout ya !

I know what you mean by banging your head on the wall in frustration after being stuck for a time, I was banging my head for 3 years. I must have stopped playing the game like 5 times during those 3 years and I started all over again once. I just couldn't unstuck myself! Worse thing is that I new what I had to do but didn't know how to achieve it, it was so frustrating...
Eventually I finally found the answer and finished the game like 3 or 4 days later. Took me 4 years to finish the game and the game's story lasts 4 years, at least I respected the timing

The Game was indeed great and very cool, my favourite parts where those "One year later" scenes, Manny must have been a very succesful business man when he was alive, he goes from coal to gold everytime...

Game ending music was also cool and I immediatly got it from the game data and turned into mp3 format (same thing for a couple of other cool game music), I also retrieved Salvador Limones's description of being sprouted and his "Viva la Revoluccion!" is said everytime I exit windows

Kinda reminds me of FF VII. Took me 2 years to beat the first disk and one week to beat the second.

Took me also 4 years to finish FF VI. First problem was encountered when I stopped playing for a while and when I wanted to continue I had completly forgotten the story and all the situation I was in, I didn't know where I had to go and what I had to do so I restarted. Then, I think it was after ZoZo, I had to create a group and instead of taking away the two lame characters I didn't want I selected them for my group (so I had a group of my two worst characters instead of a group with my 4 powerful ones...). the game being saved after the selection I was stuck with my two lamest characters and the monsters were too stong for them. I had to load an old saved game because it was then impossible to beat Ultross at a certain point. Then there was this problem in CYAN's dream, this one took me nearly 3 years to solve, the Boss in his dream would only appear when my health was very low. Problem was that my characters were too strong and I always had to hit myself because his minions would do almost no damage to me. and once my health got low enough the boss would either appear and kill me due to my low health, come but quickly dissapear again because I would heal, or not appear at all. Finally there was that Glorious day when for some unknown reason the Boss never dissapeared from battle, I then quickly killed him.

Boy FFVI, now THAT was a GAME.

I saw it on ebay today.

I was also wondering does anybody have the guide for X-wing vs Tie fighter. I only getting to play it now. But I need some help getting through the missions. An electronic copy would be great, but I would be willing to purchase a used book for a reasonable price.

Thanks
