TIE Fighter Total Conversion has been released. It is a fan-made remake of Star Wars: TIE Fighter, a game that originally appeared in 1994. The remake has new graphics, improved gameplay and even VR support.
TIE Fighter Total Conversion was created based on the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade project. That is, it is not the original 1994 game that forms the basis of the remake, but its successor, 1999’s Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance. TIE Fighter has been fully recreated in that newer engine and has therefore received gameplay improvements in addition to a graphical upgrade. .
The entire campaign and all missions of TIE Fighter have been recreated in the remake. In addition, TFTC includes a modified campaign, with bigger battles. This consists of 37 missions in total. The soundtrack has been revamped, but the original midi soundtrack is also present. Since the remake runs in X-Wing Alliance, there is also VR support. It was already added to that game with the Upgrade project.
A copy of X-Wing Alliance is required to play TIE Fighter Total Conversion. The game is available on Steam and GOG. Also, the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade mod must be installed, after which TFTC can be added. The makers of the fan remake say they have been working on it for ten years.
