I really liked the best of 5(?) skirmish battle system (which was not exclusively mutiplayer, by the way). The missions were well done and were randomly chosen but always lead up to a climatic finale, like a cruiser vs. cruiser or station raid. Being able to choose whatever fighter with whatever loadout you wanted was great too.

Not too interested in the XWing or the TIE Fighter game, but XWing Vs TIE plus the expansion, Balance of Power...

You'd have my money the second that happens.

When Disney bought Lucasfilm, I'd have thought this couldn't happen... But with the recent release of other LucasArts titles on GoG, you have to feel like this could be on the cards... right? Please?

It's almost like Disney is allergic to money... wait, no that can't be right, they're drowning in money. They have more money than they know what to do with, it's how they were able to buy Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. It's really sad that they don't actually utilize the full extent of the potential their properties have.

the 1970 burning of Doctor Who episodes comes to mind here. I guess Knights of the Old Republic is inaccessible also. Will have to take extra care of my CD-ROM version and see it isn't tampered with by maintenance barging into my apartment as that is the only copy I have.

After the buyout of Lucasfilm by Disney this is very very very very very unlikelly to happen.

These games are now in the disney vault, that means they will not come back ever. Especially not in a DRM free online shop.

Forget it.

To be clear, the "X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter" collector series included X-Wing "Special Edition" and TIE Fighter "Special Edition" that were upgraded to the XvT Engine, but from what I understand XvT: Balance of Power was not included.

There are basically a few ultimate versions:

SW: X-Wing "Collectors Edition" - Released in 1994 (used upgraded TIE Fighter engine)
SW: TIE Fighter "Collectors Edition" - Released in 1995 (included Expansions "Defender of The Empire" and "Enemies of the Empire" - offered higher resolution options)
X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter - released in 1998 (exclusively Multiplayer)
X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter: Balance of Power Expansion (single player stories for Rebel Alliance and Imperials)
X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter: Collectors Edition (included special editions of TIE Fighter and X-Wing, which were retrofitted to the XvT engine, and a cut down version of XvT simply labeled as "Flight School" unknown)

I am now old but i remember playing it to death. The best part was the part where Darth Vader personally spoke to you. It made you really feel that you were really into the action.
So sad that it never will be purchasable for anyone. Well, the next best thing might be Wing Commander. Need to get a joystick though.

It's very unlikely now that any of the Lucasfilm games will ever come to GOG?

After Disney bought out Lucasfilm (for the new Star Wars trilogy), they put all stuff into their Disney Vault alongside their movies and they even canceled running new game projects.

I think a new version could well sell (over time) 10s of thousands of copies - the old ones are so fondly remembered. Tie-Fighter is still in my Top 10 All Time PC classics alongside Ultima 7, Underworld, Freespace 2 etc...

Even a modded Freespace version would be nice :-)

But imagine using the Star Citizen or Elite engine for this? I'd want the option of various flight models though: Newtonian, Elite-style and original (which was based on 'Battle of Britain' and 'Secret Weapons' and was limited and based on atmospheric fighters)...

It's obviously true, like people say, that Lucasarts titles are generally speaking not available and off limits.

However. In the case of Tie Fighter, before the polygon engines, there could actually be some sort of opportunity for a creative solution. The thing is that the polygon version of the games, that ran on a variant of the x-wing vs. tie fighter engine, and like Alliance and xvst did afterwards, aren't really that good.

At the same time, Lucasarts essentially obsoleted the real collector's edition version of Tie Fighter that was any good, namely the Tie Fighter Collector's CD-ROM, that ran in glorious 640x480 high resolution (hd, baby!), and used goroud-shading for the objects to create the stunning and slow transitions from far to close approach of objects, and so on.

There were many reasons for that, I think, including the difficulty of selling a dos-based game at the time. The old engine also depended on a lot of weird hardware trickery, and I don't think it's an unreasonable guess that a little bit of the motivation to replace it came from that.

This brings us to the point in question, namely that whoever holds the license at the moment - wouldn't they be willing to sell it for that specific game, if it's a new studio creation, remastering the old engine with the goroud-shading graphics?

I mean, consider this - these are projects that very likely still exist in terms of toolchains and source code. And while it'd be a lot of work to truly "upgrade" the game, actually making the engine as it is compatible with a more modern rendering pipeline -- that's not a very large project in comparison.

Furthermore - it should be an easy sell. Like we see, there's some interest in the game. But it's in a category of games that has been dead (since I-War and I-War2), and which won't be resurrected any time soon by the large companies anyway.

And yet, it's a good way to make some splash with new Star Wars titles. Which I'm sure whoever holds the license.. Mickey Mouse or something, I don't know.. will be interested in paying a paltry sum for.

I think this should be something gog.com might want to at least think about pursuing.

But make sure it's the real version of the game, and not the polygon horror Lucasarts tried to push down people's throats.

Lucasarts games probably won't be coming for some time since Disney bought Lucasarts and closed them down in April 2013. Lucasarts site is though still online.

Tie Fighter would complete the group of flight sim games that I did not live without when I was younger. The others being Wing Commander (pretty much the whole series) and Freespace 2. I think the entirety of high school was spent playing these games over and over again for me.

Tie-Fighter and it's expansions are one of the best PC games of all time! Why Lucas Arts never updated and re-released it is a mystery. A few years ago Lucas Arts announced they were brining back some of their old games (Monkey Island). They had to issue a statement that it would not be an XvT game! That's how popular these games are! Please GOG, get Tie Fighter for me!

PLEASE help me spread this post:
Disney -
IF you release TIE Fighter, PLEASE correct a mission that was bugged out.

There are a series of Missions where you pursue a Mon Calamari Star Cruiser. In the First Mission you disable it. In the second Mission you are in a Gunboat and you are sent to destroy its defenses.

The secret mission objectives require you to destroy all of the Veteran Flights on the Star Cruiser - a total of 60 ships.

A BUG in all of the early releases had the Disabled Mon Calamari Star Cruiser enter hyperspace after 99:99 minutes. It would then return after 1 minute. This is a bug that was fixed in the very last patch which removed the Hyperspace timer.

The problem is the very last patch has NOT been included in ANY of the recent releases of TIE Fighter.

The absence of this patch, allowing the Star Cruiser to Warp out after 99m:99s makes the secret mission objectives impossible to complete (as it requires you to destroy 60 ships in 99 minutes - or 1 ship per every 1m 20 seconds - a physical impossibility). Even though the ship would hyperspace back in after 1 minute, the veteran ships will not launch after it left and came back.

PLEASE FIX THIS IF YOU RELEASE THIS AGAIN! PLEASE RESTORE THE FINAL PATCH!

IF you lost the Final Patch, then PLEASE correct this error.

KEEP in mind that the ships engines are irreparable, they are NOT supposed to hyperspace out at all.

Please copy paste this message to make sure it's read by those in charge.
