Description

The X-Wing Collector Series is a bundle of two classic LucasArts space sims (X-Wing Collector's CD, Tie Fighter Collector's CD) plus a special limited version of another sim: X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter: Flight School. The games have all been enhanced to run optimally under Windows 95/98, and now have 3D accelerated graphics.

Excellent updated versions of the old classics with some technical issues and a lack of most of the original music. -Condor- (6) 3.83 Stars3.83 Stars3.83 Stars3.83 Stars3.83 Stars

Trivia

So you want to run this on Windows 2000/XP, eh? The trick is to set the 3D engine to software mode. 640x480, 16 bit will do nicely. Tie Fighter 95 needs Win 98/ME compatibility mode set or it will get hung up on the Direct-X check.
