Port it to the CE. In full color. With pew-pew graphics and explosion-y effects and everything. Also make the TIE fighters shoot back. And have multiple on-screen at a time, and have the TIE fighters be harder to hit (viz., they move). Go the whole hog. Take up my entire archive. I don't care, just do it!


For one, the tie fighters DO shoot back- thatís the difficulty. And I wouldnt say that theyíre easy to hit by any meansÖAs for the CE port:

Sure. I mean, I didnít make CEPORT for nothing, right?
I can do full color, with remade backgrounds for the menu- but extra effects during gameplay may not be possible at a decent speed.

TL;DR sure. Expect some news soon.

Oh and as for the axe portÖ havent started yet lel
Well, seems like the intro screen carries over quite well- Menu needs some work but this should be up and running on CE soon!

Not really actually- I can accomplish a lot of these things in TI-BASIC (except maybe the multiple tie fighters thing) at a reasonable speed, and tbh a C port would be a lot harder for me to work on considering Iíve never used C on the CE before- idk maybe as X-Wing 2.4 (2.2 being the Celtic III version and 2.3 being the eventual Axe release)
excited about the ce version. at first, I downloaded it and tried to transfer it and expecting it to work like other games I've gotten. Then I look here and I guess my question was answered.

Kinda forgot about my CEPORT'ed version. I'm going to be getting my hands on an actual CE soon so I wouldn't be surprised if i got back to working on this some time in May Wink .
Hopefully so 😁
One thing: you will have to either port it to C (just use regex or something idk) and use double buffering or totally overhaul the graphics routines for the CE edition bc flashy TIE fighters kind of give people headaches... :/

Iím gonna have to modify the gfx no matter what as the gameís gonna need new picvars/backgrounds for the CE anyway. Its not really feasible to port this to C as that would fall into the realm of remakes.
