Now this is super cool! I used to love playing X-Wing and Tie Fighter collectors editions back in the day. However sadly by the late 90s I’d stopped playing these kinds of games so I didn’t get to experience the joys of the 1998 Windows remakes, X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter, and the final X-Wing Alliance sequels. However I always planned to haha.
I recently noticed they’re all on steam and there’s some good fan patches out there for them so I guess I’ve got no excuse now lol. However the most impressive fan project I’ve found is this one! It massively converts the ancient late 90s X-Wing Alliance engine to support better textures, shaders and lighting effects and what a difference it makes. Just amazing!
The project is already released and is still being improved upon in 2020. Check out this recent video they did! Wowzer!!
