I'm hazarding a guess, but I assume there is no widescreen support from what I have read so far on another site, if you are wondering how it works on modern systems Krovven.

Long ago though, when my first forray into modding was mainly SW games, I found a way, posted on the interwebs, to 'hack' the .exe file with a hex editor to support wide screens. I did it myself once, but I don't remember how. That was way back in 2005 though, so unless GoG somehow found it, its likely someone will need to bring out the fix again.

Xwing Alliance supports widescreen and you can play the original xwing missions using it.

OMG you guys are pathetic. I didn't even say anything bad about the games and you are immediately getting into defensive fanboy mode.

Peoples nostalgia over how the original games means nothing to me. As my nostalgia over the games would mean nothing to you.

I want to know how the current releases function and how they look and at what resolutions are available...among other issues, features, etc.

Guess I'll just go get my answers from another forum where people don't have giant sticks shoved up their ass.

seems like the answers are on gog forums

[url=http://www.gog.com/forum/general/release_star_wars_tie_fighter_special_edition/page7[/url]

looks like you can either run it in dos mode (320x200) or windows 95 mode which uses xwing vs tie fighter engine that takes away more than it gives, mainly dynamic music and messes up the physics for the sake of multiplayer balance - even though this is single player.

people are clamoring for the 95 collectors cd edition that's not part of the release.

In 1995, TIE Fighter also received a Collector's CD-ROM. The CD-ROM version offered optional enhanced SVGA graphics, increasing the game's resolution from 320x200 to 640x480.[2] The cinematic cutscenes were also enhanced, and the game received numerous voiceovers. The CD-ROM includes the previously released Defender of the Empire expansion and an additional Enemies of the Empire expansion.

How are folk here playing the game on PC, with keyboard & mouse or gamepad?

mouse and keyboard is fine as is gamepad, and someone said there was an issue with FOV? They do allow you to adjust it, not to 120 but it's not your typical console port of 65.

If all the DLC is centered around the Station then it could end up being that the best way to play it is after all the DLC is released and you can play it in a more logical order in terms of timeline of events, maybe - I guess it depends on how far each DLC takes you to the final conclusion and spoils the end of the main game.

There was a updated graphics version of Xwing and Tie Fighter that was released on CD that had everything except Xwing Alliance (hope that comes to GoG as well).

Even that would be a stretch for my Nostalgia Goggles, the original was 320x200. The X-wing vs Tie Fighter went up to 640x400 res I believe.

I just watched a round on some guy's Twitch stream and the game looked dreadful. They basically spent 5 minutes searching the map, eventually found the monster, and then held down the trigger button for 10 minutes while casually avoiding the monster's seemingly impotent attacks.

Cool idea but it looks like the execution is extremely poor.

That's how the first alpha played out, the levels felt more like mini arenas rather than having any sort of adventure progression to them, the monster didn't feel like it "evolved" so much as just gained new abilities.

I think I would have modeled the design after the classic arcade game Rampage with lots of destruction and NPC people to eat/protect.

You should be able to eat other players and poop them out if you're the monster, imagine having to scrounge for ammo from fallen comrades.

If your core game isn't fun then it's pointless to have "tons of soldiers and monsters" to unlock.

They mentioned dedicated servers in an interview but I'm pretty sure they're instanced and not the kind where you pick from your browser.

They don't want to give up control over what maps are played in rotation it seems, I remember them using "nuketown" 24/7 as a special event they would set.

So does this freebie include the single player campaign or is it just the multiplayer?

But for the first time maybe in my life, on that Saturday afternoon, I walked towards that pair of gamers and I didn’t smile. I didn’t say hello. In fact, I crossed the street so I wouldn’t walk by them. Because after all the years of gamer love and inclusiveness, something had changed in me. A small voice of doubt in my brain now suspected that those guys and I might not be comrades after all. That they might not greet me with reflected friendliness, but contempt.

dang, good thing she didn't smile and say hello, they might have smiled and said hello back.

keep living in your little bubble of fear girl

10 out of 10 white people endorse this game!

Additional Notes: Field of View ranges from 65°-90°.

putting that in the system specs Rotfl

all that and dedicated servers, well you can't choose your server I suppose but at least your not doing some crappy pvp match making.

Well from his perspective the majority of americans are drooling idiots since he's responsible for regurgitating the same game every year and making a crap ton of money doing so.

drama aside it sure looks good.

that price though, ugh

even on a typical steam sale of 25% off that would be more than my wallet could handle for the "deluxe" edition.

Yeah, that sucking sound is his epic sized paycheck bleeding the company dry, I bet the poor slaves that actually do the work making the game engine have never seen a pay raise.

They probably thought they could have him do inroad contracts to sell the engine to EA for the next Sims game.

Does it work if you buy one child ticket lol

What does a movie ticket costs these days? I haven't been to a movie theater in years. I prefer to watch in the comfort of my home, not having to pay an ass load for food and drinks, and best of all not putting up with idiots. I don't mind waiting a few months for a BR/DVD release, especially lately when movies get chopped for theaters and released in uncut/uncensored BR/DVD.

Last time I went to a theater it was $7.50 for an adult ticket, which is what the game is on sale for now anyway. I'm guessing it's gone up since then.

same, looks like it's $12 but the catch is you have to buy your ticket through Fandango so that might just be their inflated price.
