The TIE Fighter Total Conversion (TFTC) project is aimed at porting the original classic 1994 LucasArts game TIE Fighter, into the 1999 X-Wing Alliance (XWA) engine. Based on the original TFTC from 2005 and built upon the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade project, this is a complete overhaul of the game from graphics to gameplay. All 13 battle campaigns and their training missions have been ported over along with 8 Reimagined battle campaigns, taking advantage of the much better XWA engine and imagining how TIE Fighter could've been had the technology of the time not limited it. But here's a general breakdown of what you can expect from this mod!

  • A full port of all the Classic TIE Fighter missions, including the expansions Defender of the Empire and Enemies of the Empire - a total of 76 campaign missions + the 28 original Training missions. This includes all the original voiceovers and cutscenes.
  • A Reimagined campaign of the first 8 Battles of TIE Fighter. These take the original missions, expand upon them for more ships, bigger battles or in some cases completely build new missions out of them but retaining the same overall narrative and story points of the original Classic. This campaign includes 37 fully playable campaign missions + 4 updated training scenarios.
  • That's a total of 145 unique missions between both the Classic and Reimagined versions!
  • Enjoy the amazing updated visuals for the X-Wing Alliance engine made possible by the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade project (XWAU), bringing this 22 year old game into the modern era of graphics.
  • VR Support, again thanks to the XWAU project.
  • Enjoy a fully remastered TIE Fighter soundtrack or even load up the old original MIDI soundtrack if you're feeling more nostalgic!
  • Rank up, collect memorabilia and earn medals in your pilot room as you progress!
  • Join the Secret Order of the Emperor as you play through and rank up those tattoos just like the original.

Its been a couple of months now since we released our first patch and since my last video update for you. As I mentioned in that previous video, I went on holiday for a few weeks visiting family so the project entered a quiet period where we were noting down bugs and making a handful of quick fixes but not much else. But I'm back now and have been busy with other team members in performing fixes and balances changes for 1.2.

But we do have one major announcement. Some of you may already be aware, but we are very pleased to announce that the supremely talented Paul "OtaKing" Johnson is remaking the TIE Fighter intro cutscene for us. In case you are unaware of him, he made the amazing TIE Fighter animated short film a few years back, you know the one with over 12 million views on it. He's already posted some screenshots of what you can expect and we are so lucky to have him come on board our team and I'm sure you will all be very excited to see the end result!

Thank you so much for this excellent mod!

I have some issues with the laser beams: All my TIE laser beams are coloured red in TFTC while they are green in XWAU. Is there any way to fix this?

Hello, this is a result of you turning the in-game brightness up, if you reset it to default the colours should be normal.

Requesting a torrent or another way to d/l, because my current connection keeps canceling this 7gb file. I'm dying to play it!

Hi. Awesome update!! Just wondering if it can allow the use of the joystick's Z-axis to roll? Mine doesn't seem to allow it for some reason - but does in X-wing Alliance... Anyway, awsome awesome project! :)

I loved TIE Fighter back in the day, I think it was one of the first games I ever played all the way through. But these days I'm not a gamer and only have a fairly bog standard laptop (Inspiron 7000, Intel Core i7-10510U Processor).

Since, sadly, buying a full gaming rig would be overkill to play one game, will this conversion run OK since it's based on an old engine anyway, or will I just end up with an unusably low frame rate?

Thanks for this amazing mod and all the hard work! I agree with the others here. Setting up a joystick to work is perhaps the most daunting part of the process after finishing a setup by following your amazing set up instructions video. For example, even if I had a joystick profile from the github page, it did not work for me after 5 hours of trial and error. I ended up downloading a hook file from the xwing alliance upgrade discussion forum and my joystick has been working as charm since then.

May I request the developers here to consider building a more user friendly joystick set up interface, one that shows clearly what joystick button a user("non-technical") is selecting. Perhaps, you can re-use windows' joystick interface. Just some food for thought. May I also request preparing a joystick set up video from the developers similar to their installation guide video?

I have a feature request, concerning the Joystick Configurator. As the user of a gamepad, I have been trying to remap various buttons and whatnot onto my Xbox controller. It is bit of a trial and error process, since it isn't clear how the buttons relate to what I see on the configurator.

What I would like to see is the configuration button entry lighting up if you press a button. That should make the setup more intuitive.

I will be flying in the Empire's service once I get the analog triggers figured out. Thank you for hearing me out. :)

This is such a treat to play tie fighter in modern graphics.

I havent finished the campaign yet but what is Covert Achivements in the pilot terminal? I dont recall doing covert missions during the original game....

(Sorry for the double post. I forgot that I wasn't logged in before)

At a guess, those would be the objectives given by the Emperor's agent in the official games. His objectives are almost always optional and took extra work to complete. His promotions followed a different tree from the standard stuff.

TFTC due to technical issues made the agent's objectives a requirement. Hopefully there will be a hack down the line that corrects the issue.
