    both of these games require an actual joystick.. my xbox for pc controller has no use.. I will not be able to work on these xwing/tie fighter titles until Thursday when I obtain my flightstick

    best,
    cal

    Just thought i would mention that GOG has two versions 1994 and 1998. With the 98 version you can use a xbox controller.

    oh for pete's sakes.. theres 2 versions of this game from 1980?

    Christ..

    best,
    Cal

    yeah, there are two version of both games, actually there are three of each, but only two are on gog, the oldest and newest one.

    no need to fiddle around with the versions from 1993/94, the versions from 1998 are the way to go.

    Some will argue that the 95 version of the games was the best of both worlds, personally I am playing the 98 version (win) of it and prefer it over the old one.

    But yea, theres two versions of it on GoG, but you get both when buying one. And personally I think it will be harder to make a decent trainer for the old 94 version of TIE or XW seeing as they are DOS baseed and run through DOSBox and I have no clues as to how that would react if trying to use a trainer under it.

    This game REQUIRES a joystick. It will not even launch without. I don't have a joystick, maybe Cal does.

    I played the CD version (back in the actual DOS days) with a mouse. *shrug* In any case, you can get a used Logitech Attack 3 (the model I use now, with great results) on Amazon for $20 or so.

    As much as I hate to make your life harder, I would like to formally (and respectfully) request that you also make a trainer for the 1994 iteration if feasible. There really is a difference between the two versions, and any given player will strongly prefer one iteration or the other.

    Please take as long as you need; I'm quite willing to be patient. And as always, thank you for your hard work!

    To fully answer your question (10/30/14), Caliber:

    The game awards points to your single-player profile depending on how well you perform in a mission, bonus objectives, etc, etc. Your score determines your advance in rank within the Imperial Navy and the Emperor's Secret Order, which is an important plot point and also wicked cool.

    If you enable the built-in unlimited ammo or invincibility cheats at any point during a mission, it cuts your score for that mission by 90%. I know it's silly, but that's what I'm looking for any trainer to bypass. Anything else you guys can cook up is just a bonus.

    And yes, there are three iterations, two of which have been released on GOG. The 1994 version has the IMUSE music system, whereas the 1998 version has improved graphics. If you really want to know, I'll write out a detailed discourse on the three iterations. Just let me know. Until that time, I'll spare you.

    Yes, the DOS CD-ROM versions were definitely the best iterations of the games. Problem is... Disney didn't authorize them for release. At least, I assume it was Disney. GOG says it wasn't their decision which versions to release.

    I've put in a ticket to GOG asking if they know what department at Disney we should send letters to, but I haven't heard back yet. For now, I'm playing the 1994 version.

    Interesting, I didn't know there were three versions. I wonder why they only allowed GOG to do two of them, or if they have any plans for XWvsTIE...

    Archangel, I'd be interested in know some more bullet points of what's different between the two. I knew the '98 had improved graphics, so I've been playing that one. I believe some people preferred the 94 version for some audio differences? Are there any content differences- such as additional missions or armaments in one version that aren't in the other?

    For TIE Fighter:
    1994 -
    Diskette release
    iMuse

    1995 -
    CD Rom release
    iMuse
    640x480 option
    enhanced cutscenes with voice overs

    1998 -
    X-Wing Collector's Series
    drops DOS support
    drop iMuse for redbook audio loops
    switches to XvT engine for enhanced graphics.

    I wish they had given us the 1995 release.
