The second wave of classic Lucasfilm games continues on GOG.com with six new Star Wars™ titles, including two more digital premieres, releasing January 22 and January 27 at 3PM CET/6AM PST.
GOG.com gets six long-awaited Star Wars titles like X-Wing vs TIE Fighter and Galactic Battlegrounds
After teaming up with Disney Interactive and Lucasfilm last fall for the well-received release of six Lucasfilm titles, GOG.com is ready to release more classic Star Wars titles for fans and gamers to play once again. Starting January 20, GOG.com will release 12 more titles from the “galaxy far, far away….” for the following ten days.
I was excited when I heard that GOG.com was releasing X-Wing and Tie Fighter, and spent last night putting together the Tie Fighter Reconstructed mod for this new GOG.com edition of Tie Fighter!

UPDATE 2: The Tie Fighter Reconstructed page now has a version that is compatible with the GOG.com edition of the game. The GOG Editions of X-Wing and Tie Fighter are now available from gog.com– their release includes the original Floppy disk versions and the Windows CD-ROM versions, but currently does not include the DOS CD-ROM versions. Keep in mind that the GOG.com Windows versions have 3D Acceleration completely disabled (likely because these games do not run very well with 3D acceleration in Windows 8). This guide can help you get the original versions of X-Wing and Tie Fighter running with 3D acceleration, but only in Windows 7 or older.
UPDATE: The files from the Tie Fighter Reconstructed guide have been rehosted. In addition, some additional Troubleshooting notes have been added including for Windows 8, and the Balance of Power installation.
GUIDE: Its been over a decade since the last proper Star Wars flight sim was released from LucasArts, and many of us who were fans of the original series have been patiently waiting for a new installment for quite some time now.
