*unintelligible screams of joy*

They shall all be mine! This is fantastic! I have almost all of these games, but save for KOTOR, none of them want to play on a modern machine. Sad

Thank you, Skuldren! Very Happy

Well I have an old PC just for games like this (KotOR is to "recent" for its grafic card to handle for instance), so this isn't very exciting for me.

I would like to play X-Wing/TIE again, but those games are useless without a joystick, which I no longer have. Mad

I have exactly one memory of playing X-Wing, where I would bang into the canyon wall a lot for five minutes before my friend banned me from the game, and about 200 memories of everyone else telling me how amazing this game was. Maybe I'll finally get around to playing it Very Happy

What about Rogue Squadron?

Are you sure that wasn't Rebel Assault? Rebel Assault had a canyon sequence in the first mission. To my memory, X-Wing was entirely in space.

Unless you're referring to a Death Star Trench run (which may have been the final mission).

Rogue Squadron also had a canyon sequence. That was my first and favorite Star Wars game of all time. I can beat you all with my eyes closed. Hee-hee. Cool

I honestly haven't a clue, so maybe you're right. But it was definitely a canyon. I believe it was some sort of training mission (which was possibly the first level).

I'm not sure about Rogue Squadron, but in Rebel Assault, the first mission was flying a T-16 Skyhopper through Beggar's Canyon, and the third mission was flying an A-Wing through a more difficult canyon on a different planet.

Check out this Youtube video for the beginning of the game. Gameplay starts about 3 minutes in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=359qyiXskCE

Hmm. I don't recall it being a T-16. If I had to place my money, I would have said X-Wing or snowspeeder. But maybe I'm remembering it entirely wrong?

This is the first mission in Rogue Squadron (which Mara was referring to): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cbR_ZTCzFY

Oh, the nostalgia. It hurts.

That is starting to seem familiar, though I won't really know until I experience the inverted x-axis again and get a really close up look at those canyon walls.
