Star Wars: X-Wing Collector Series

Gog.com sells X-Wing and Tie Fighter separately. The (arguably superior) DOS CD as well as the DOS floppy versions are included, but this entry is just about the 1998 remakes for Windows.

What works

Installing the games. The installer throws some errors after it's done but many GOG.com installers do, and they don't seem significant.

Both the games require a joystick. My vintage Sidewinder 3D Pro worked without any extra setup.

Flying around a bit and shooting targets to see that the games run with no major issues.

What does not

The in-game background music, originally CD audio but now files in .ogg format, intended to play through a custom winmm.dll.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Playing for very long.

Additional Comments

Needs an override for winmm.dll for the background music to play, but unfortunately this will crash. The patch in Bug #37983 helps with that, and the music then plays.
