Motivation

Back in late 2008 my PC crashed, I have to re-install everything including XWA which I haven't touch for more than 5 years. After I got XWA back, I did have problem with multi-player game for two PC behind router with wireless connection. I went online searching for solution, luckily I found Darksaber's X-Wing Station. After DSUCP installed, I was overwhelmed by those high quality crafts. It gave the game a new life. Encouraged by TFTC, I started to learn XWA mods mostly from Darksaber's site. This site is hosted by Fader so that I can put my mods here for download. Hope everyone can enjoy it and give me you feedback. Let's also hope someday LucasArts will actually release new Xwing series game for all of us.

Inspired by Xwing Redux. This project is just converting xwi files from English version of XwingCD into XWA mission files. Debriefing and radio message not exist, because original XwindCD do not have them.

  2. All missions with voiced briefing. Requrie tools to enable this feature.
  3. All missions has been re-balanced and tested.
  4. Adding intro-cutscenes for each tour of duty which Redux didn’t include.
  5. Convert rest of cutscenes from Redux via  DivXR 6.8 Codec for compatibility.
  6. Battle pictures (by cirsger) as well as mission pictures update
  7. Xwingalliance.exe is widescreen patched, 1152X864=1680X1050 (ref. XWA_widescreen).

How to Play?

XvT multiplayer mission pack

Conversion Features:

  1. All multiplayer missions from XvT & BOP were converted into XWA mission files.
  2. Generate skirmish files for multiplayer mode to match with all multiplayer missions.

There is only one wave allowed during the game even both tie and skm files were set more than one. It makes missions become very hard to be accomplished. Anyone have a fix please give me feedback.

XvT Conversion Imperial Part

After TFTC 8-13 and XWC project finished, conversion of XvT is a logical for my next move. Unlike XvT, for solo fly mission, XWA can only play one side so this pack has to split into two. Rebel part is under construction, this is imperial part which can under imperial XWA 1.1 form Darksaber’s Xwing Station

Conversion Features:

  1. All missions (battle, campaign, melee, training) were converted from XvT & BOP tie files.
  2. Training missions with voiced radio message (Require to copy files from XvT CD)
  3. Adding cutscenes for battle and campaign mode (converted by hip63)
  4. Battle pictures as well as mission pictures update (pictures from http://xwing.wz.cz/en_xvt_sc.htm )
  5. All battle and campaign & battle missions were tested with modification note and custom hints.
  6. Create executable bat files to swap installation, e.g. Execute PlayImpCampaign.bat to play campaign missions, that will copy necessary files to XWA directory, if your XWA is direction is not “C:\Program Files\LucasArts\XWingAlliance”, please edit bat files to match up.

Note: Original XvT allows T/I to load missile, which is not allowed in XWA. The out come is super-powered T/I for some missions. You can use mxvted to change weaponary of T/I or just unload missile by using AlliED. I was half way throught mission testing (playing) before I found this, not sure I fixed all of them. If you found any bug, please give me your feedback.

Conversion Features:

  1. All rebel part of missions (battle, campaign, training) were converted from XvT & BOP tie files.
  2. Training missions with voiced radio message (Require to copy files from XvT CD, Ref. Sec. 3.2)

Tie Fighter Conversion

The TFC project is an attempt to use modern X-Wing Alliance game engine to play Tie Fighter missions. Original work was done by TFTC team from http://www.tftc.gaylenol.com which ends in battle 7. I tried to make extension but there is bug that game will crash after certain mission number exceeds.
I found that making entire TFTC in one pack is not possible under imperial environment. I care more about gameplay than frontend, so this pack will be under “rebel” environment but cutscenes are all imperial. It’s not “Total” conversion, so I call it TFC.
More and more people reported in that voice files didn’t convert through under windows 7 x64, so I extracted all voices files so that you can upload to your XWA CD2, you can play full voiced missions.

Conversion Features:

  1. Battle 1-7 mission files were from TFTC
  2. All files in movies directory except for battle 8-13 cutscenes were from TFTC
  3. Battles 8-13 and training missions from the original TIE Fighter game.
  4. Convert Cutscenes 8-13 from TIE CD
  5. All in-flight, commander briefing and briefing voices including cloaking figure’s voices. Require tools to enable this feature. (Ref. Sec. 3.2)
  6. All commander briefing text will be shown.
  7. Hints voices will be right after commander briefing.
  8. Fixed few mission will crashed in briefing. (jcpierce suggested)
