Attn LA: Please remake X-Wing and TIE Fighter for Steam

And all the other Star Wars flight sims. They were part of my childhood. You severely underestimate the power that nostalgia has over us Star Wars nerds. It's like Force Mind Control on us. Seriously.

That is all

X-Wing Alliance would be a good option. It was a newer version with better graphics, and there is a high res texture pack.

I would love a remake of X-Wing. I remember that build up to the attack on the STD Intrepid, and being a part of the first successful destruction of a Star Destroyer. That game was really good at making you feel like you're part of the larger Star Wars story. Sigh.

The Windows games have serious problems in modern OSs. XWA might be ok though...

The DOS games could be packaged in DOSBOX easily enough.

Or they could package some of the X-wing and tie fighter (and XvT) missions into a X-wing alliance package. Just something, anything really.

I would prefer a new engine, similar to the class Super Mario All Stars on the SNES all those years ago, where all 3 games were on a single cartridge.

Something similar could be done here, where they could up the graphics a little bit, maybe directx 9 quality and have all the campaigns from the space sims in a single game all pickable via a campaign room, like Freespace and Freespace 2.

Each one having new voice acted stuff during missions, the briefing and debriefing and so on.

I would so love that and would pay more then normal money for it to happen.

I would so pay like £59.99 or something for it.

The problem with spending money on a new engine, is that X-Wing is a simulator. Simulators are not big money makers for the gaming industry.

Another issue is the large number of controls in the game. Over half of the keyboard is mapped to some function or another.

Also, do you use the same story, or create a new story?

a remake of this game, with just updated graphics would sell huge. this was one of the classic games that many older gamers grew up playing. if LA remade this with just redone graphics i would buy a joystick just to play it, as would many other people i know.
