Hello, I am a huge fan of Science Fiction, mainly star wars, star trek, battlestar galactica, Babylon 5 and stargate. I have only been a member here for a short time, and I have already played hundreds of awesome mods. I would like to hear any opinions on current events, or anything random. The community here is great, and I am glad to be a part of it, even if all the Battlestar Galactica mods have gone the way of the Dodo... :( Anyways, besides that, this is a great mod site, and I look forward to seeing what kind of mods there will be in the future, since mods are inching ever so closer to being exactly like commercial games. I am in college, studying business and programming, and I keep the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade Project Mod page up-to-date. Thanks for visiting my profile, and have a great day :)

Hello there, random page viewer and friends alike,
As you all know, today is thanksgiving. By the end of the night, my goal is to be as stuffed as the turkey was... :P Unfortunately, I do have to work today, so I won't be able to say happy thanksgiving to everybody. Just because I don't say it, doesn't mean I DON'T want you to have a happy thanksgiving, on the contrary, I wish everyone here on Mod-Database a happy thanksgiving, and may your mashed-potato gravy runneth-over, and coat everything in a warm, tasty glaze.

A few of you may be happy to hear that I will be bringing my XML's to work, since half of our time will be wasted on a god-awful "Thanksgiving office party", however, I will get to eat dinner with my family before going back to work. Like I said, HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE! :D

wow, that sounds great. There is a large wealth of star wars content already made for the source engine, are you planning on getting authors' permissions and using them, or starting from scratch? Either way, I would like to help in any way I can. Funny thing is, I also start C++ in a few weeks. I have mod experience. :P Send me a PM if you wanted to talk more about your project. :D

Hi, Romnus. Bout had a heart attack when I discovered the webpages related to the XWing Alliance upgrade project, saw the updated ship models, and discovered the ability to play XWing and TIE Fighter in the XWA engine. These are some of my favorite games of all time and it's hard to believe this is real! I dug up my old XWA CDs and tried to install the game using the tutorial you created but to no avail. I posted the following comment on that page and don't know if you're notified automatically, so I'll chance harassing you to duplicate it here:

Hey guys, I'm DYING to get XWing Alliance back up and running (still have the old CDs) on my new computer (Windows 7 x64) and have followed all of the above instructions, however I keep getting hung up. After I click on "Setup" and agree to the terms of the license agreement I get the following error message:
"Error reading from file:
C:\XWA_DISK_1\MISSIONS\1B0M1FW.TIE. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it."
My options are cancel, retry, and ignore. Selecting ignore brings up the same message except replace "1B0M1FW.TIE" with "1B0M2FW.TIE", then "1B0M3FW.TIE" and so on. I tried both methods (making an install DVR and making a disc image) and both give me the same result. Would be SOOOOOOO grateful for any assistance. Thanks in advance!

Check on the CD and in C:\XWA_DISK_1\MISSIONS if all mission files are in it. if it isn't in it, i could send them via email.
so, pm when you checked, or don't if you aren't active too much.

Alright guys, I just started recording a video yeserday that will feature the entire process step-by-step. I hope to have it finished by the end of the week. I will put it on the X-Wing Alliance upgrade page, as well as youtube. I will let you guys know when it is up, as well as post a link. Hopefully, out of all of the different tactics used, one of them will solve this common issue. :)
