Getting TIE Fighter to work under Win98

I've seen a few threads out there helping people to get their TIE Fighter collector's CD running on winXP. Wondering if anyone has any solutions for those of us who aren't far enough back in the stone age to be able to just straight run the game from a fresh install, but are just far enough back to be using win98.

Which version are you trying to run? The DOS version or the Windows version (the latter often coming with either the X-Wing Collectors' Series or the X-Wing Trilogy bundles)? A Windows version of TIE Fighter should require nothing special in order to run on a Win98 machine, but the DOS version might require that you edit the executable's properties to make sure it gets enough Expanded Memory (EMS) when run.

Did you mean NT 4.0 or Windows 2000? Because if you're trying to run it on the former operating system, it's no wonder you're having problems.

There is another (sounds familiar) thread here that says there's a patch you can download from Lucasfiles. I haven't tried it, but I haven't had any trouble with my program.


Go big or go home.
