    Anybody into an official Geek Central online game of XvT? I love the starwars games, but I've never had a chance to play against actual people.

    Post up if you're interested.

    "IN" posts are appropriate, since the point is to find out who's "IN" for a game.

    Supermods, please don't ban for that in this thread!!!!!

    Yeah, it works like a charm on XP. That's where I'm running it now.

    There are a bunch of old "abandoned" games compilations on Suprnova.org - I know a couple of them have those games in them. ;)

    That was a >GREAT< game. We used to play for hours and hours on the Zone (microsoft gaming zone). It was free too. 4 player, or we'd just use the meet rooms to hand out an ip and get a 8 player going.

    I loved flying an Xwing the best, but 8 player TF or TI games over cable/dsl were awesome. Couple times some ppl on a university 45mb backbone hosted the 8 player games and that was simply unbelievable.

    I guess that sort of thing isn't as rare now esp with internet gaming places doing 16 player LAN games, but 4 years ago it was unheard of almost.

    Good ole lucas arts space sim's. Too bad this game came out before high speed internet connections. It did not play well over HPB connections.

    I used to be obsessed with the tie fighter/x wing games.

    god damn they were good. :wtc:

    I wish they would come out with new ones.

    I remember back when X-wing came out.. I was in grade 4. I remember how awesome the graphics were, and one of the first games to use polygons, and be actual 3d.
