Whoever re-uploaded this and Tie Fighter (Deckard?): Thank you so much! I've been looking for these games for quite some time now, you're my hero Wink

All links to this and Tie Fighter are dead now, what alternatives are left to get them? Does anyone still have the images? I'd really love to have these, not some cheap DosBox replacement Sad So, if anyone has an idea how to get hold of them, please tell me. Pretty please :-/

This game is known to run slowly in SheepShaver (it's noted on SheepShaver compatibility lists), and indeed I have experienced this. However, I have discovered the following:

I was experimenting with a Parallels Desktop 8 virtual machine (VM) running Mac OS X 10.7.5 (Lion). The computer is a mid-2012 15-inch MacBook Pro (non-Retina display) with a Core i7. Running SheepShaver in that VM, both X-Wing and TIE Fighter run at full speed! My hunch is that there's something about the virtual CPU that is somehow crunching the numbers differently.

It would be great if someone who knows more about CPUs and JIT compiling could comment. But whatever the case, it's good to know that the problem is not due to SheepShaver inherently.

The way to get X-Wing working in SheepShaver (with a Mac OS X host) with a disc image is to lock the image in Mac OS X using "Get Info" and mount it in SheepShaver via the SheepShaver preferences Volumes list.

Also, I had a problem where the screen would go black and freeze SheepShaver after a mission was completed. While obviously annoying, this also prevents you from advancing beyond the first mission in a tour of duty. I discovered that unchecking "QuickDraw Acceleration" in SheepShaver's preferences solves this issue, and does not cause any other problems in SheepShaver unless an application indeed requires QuickDraw.

Bertyboy asked previously:

You may also get more help if you elaborate on which OS you are running under, which OS you are emulating in SS, what format the disc image is, how you mounted it in SheepShaver, etc, etc. One sentence questions usually get one sentence replies.

Nah, I mentioned that in my initial post. I still have to get around to burning a CD, I forgot today.

what about disc image ?

Hey Berty, I have not tried burning the disc but that seems like an easiest enough option. Anyway, I'm running SShaver with OS 9.0 and the newworldROM.

Have you tried burnng a disc ?

This game is far too early to have implemented any devious anti-piracy protection that would require someone to develop a CD crack.

I need a CD crack for this. I've gotten the disc image loaded in SS but it still won't see the disk. Any help?

My version is only 32MB, and a small crack <1MB.

Mine has to be a rip, missing movies/music or whatever..

It works. Thank you both Carl and TheNewFlesh.

The advantages with the .toast format is that (I learned that here thanks to IIGS_User) can be mounted within the Emulators, Real Macintoshes, and also can be burned in the Win-world by just changing the .toast suffix for . NRG (NERO) onto a CD. and they work perfectly.

and this game looks too good to be wasted in a .dmg file Smile

Sorry, that .dmg file was my personal backup and I hadn't tested it in SheepShaver yet, I was just browsing this site and though perhaps I could help some folks out. I'll see if I can provide an .img or toast file soon.

Edit: I'm uploading an alternate image right now. It's been made with Toast 9, so I hope it's backwards compatible. I zipped the image to bring it from 650 mb to 380mb. Hope it works for people!

I'll convert it to toast and upload it. DiscCopy doesn't work for me so I can't make img files.

MacWise's picture

The content is safe. The thing is that Disk Copy 6.5b13 cannot mount the image. If you don't have Mac OS X (like me, who use Windows) that means you cannot play this game on your emulator (or your real classic Mac, which I also have.) I could play the DOS version but just thinking of it makes me shiver.

Would it work if it was converted to a toast image or are the contents ruined?

@TheNewFlesh: thank you for your contribution but the .dmg file is unreadable in Classic. Can you please post a Toast image instead? Thanks.

Oh I remember the days when uploading demos over here was a viable option. That was before BitTorrent. Better donwload it from:
