The TIE Fighter Total Conversion (TFTC) project ports 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 (XWAU) 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 Battles 1-13, including the expansions Defender of the Empire and Enemies of the Empire - a total of 76 campaign missions + the 28 original Training missions and even the original Demo mission! This includes all the original voiceovers and cutscenes. TFTC Classic aims to replicate the original game as closely as we can.
  • A Reimagined campaign of Battles 1-8 of TIE Fighter. These take the original missions, expands 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 39 fully playable campaign missions + 4 updated training scenarios. Battles 9-13 of TFTC Reimagined will be completed sometime in 2023.
  • That's a total of 148 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 23 year old game into the modern era of graphics.
  • VR Support, again thanks to the XWAU project.
  • A fully remastered TIE Fighter soundtrack or load up one of three original MIDI Soundtracks (Roland SC-55, Gravis Ultrasound or Sound Blaster AWE32)
  • Rank up, collect memorabilia and earn medals in your pilot room as you progress. Don't forget to check your e-mails too!
  • Join the Secret Order of the Emperor as you play through and rank up those tattoos just like the original.

To play this mod you will REQUIRE to have the following installed:

A copy of the game X-Wing Alliance (XWA):
XWA on GoG
XWA on Steam
XWA on Origin

The original CD version of X-Wing Alliance will also work but requires an additional installation step.

Installation of the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade (XWAU) mod which also has a ModDB page.

Make sure to watch the Installation Tutorial video for full details and step by step instructions on installing TFTC.

Hello everyone, I've released a video where I talk extensively about the upcoming Reimagined campaigns 9 to 13 which are still missing from the TIE Fighter Total Conversion (TFTC) project. I have of course been giving some occasional brief updates in previous videos and some throwaway comments in the Let's Play series I've done as well as some sneak peak screenshots in Discord here and there, but suffice to say they will differ significantly more than their Classic counterparts, so I'll take you through my general plans and ideas going forward.If you would like to keep spoiler free or as much in the dark as to what you might get in 9-13, then stop reading and watching now. Please also bear in mind that some of this will be subject to change as the design work evolves.


Battles 9-13 will represent a significant deviation from the Classic versions of this storyline. While it will still have the same overall plot beats and framework regarding the civil war against Zaarin's forces and our dip into the Endor plotline, how we get there and what happens within those plot beats will be considerably different and grander in scale. There will also be a lot less reliance on the Missile Boat with you soloing the entire enemy force. The new GPU based DDraw has opened up greater possibilities and flexibility in mission design for me so I'm bearing this in mind going forward. Most notably is that every single mission is being created from scratch rather than expanding any existing missions. This also means that it takes longer to do each mission, whereas a significant number of mission in the current Reimagined campaign were simply expansions in scope and scale of existing mission templates. Please do go watch my Let's Play videos for better context of how I went through the design process of each mission. Otherwise for more detailed information, please watch the above video. Thank you!

Hi, thank you for this amazing mod, I'm really enjoying this. Hard is doable but really hard, just one question though, how is working covert mission, can't click on the hooded guy. I don't want to bother you, but I've been searching for an hour now.

So... every-time I run the installer for 1.2, after step 24 it crashes and says it can't find the Palpatine Total Converter. What am I doing wrong here? do I need the XWAU?

Hello, have you made sure you are following the correct installation procedure? Clean install of XWA > XWAU Mega Patch > TFTC v1.2. There is a tutorial video in the download links which you can follow and the readme also explains what needs to be done.

DO NOT install Update 5 or Update 5.5 of XWAU separately. Update 5 is included in the v1.2 installer and Update 5.5 is not compatible with v1.2.

I have. I've run it twice and it complains about not being able to find the Palpatine Total Converter. I have not downloaded anything from the XWAU site nor installed anything from it. All I have is XWA installed and then I go and grab TFTC from this site we're on. I'm going to wipe out my current installation of XWA completely off my computer. I will let you know if the problem persists or if it works.
