Hi all,

Found these free games ... excellent for StarWars fans!! biggrin.gif
The graphics are not textured, so it does not look fancy. But I would say that the gameplay captures the atmosphere of the original movies better than the original StarsWars X-Wing Fighter series from Lucas!

Enjoi! biggrin.gif

These look great but they are programmed in VisualBasic and depend on Direct X so, I don't think we will see them running on Linux any time soon. sad.gif

I bet they'd go on a desktop with wine...or certainly cedega. Probably doing windows x86 emulation for directX gaming on the Z is asking too much, though laugh.gif

Oh gee, I didn't realised that ... I just grabbed the files and "This is Red Three ... Switching to link-canon mode ... " ... hahahaa biggrin.gif

Well, VB can be ported to C quite easily ... for me anyway ... I code in both languages wink.gif ... but for now, .... let me go get some TIEs!!! tongue.gif

nice find! Would be nice if they could be ported- tis a shame. Not many good flight sim/flight battle games out there, for the Z.
