Hello everybody, got Tie Fighter on the fouth of May sale. Never played it before, just played X-Wing back in the days but was more of a Wing Commander guy 25 years ago.

What is the differences between the versions, that I got? Is there a reason to install the CD collector's version of 1995 instead of the Windows version of 1998?

Star Wars: TIE Fighter (Collectors' CD-ROM) is the definitive version of TIE Fighter.
Thank you very much.

Yes, the 1998 version introduces some gameplay inbalance and dummies out the dynamic music track in favour of a fixed cd audio loop (and music is completely absent in the concourse and briefing room), so the 1995 version is the way to go.

Can you elaborate on the gameplay imbalance?

According to what I've read: basically in some missions enemy crafts that should have standard concussion missiles are equipped with advanced concussion missiles instead (because of the X-wing vs Tie Fighter engine default loadout settings) making the game more difficult than it should at times.
