I report my pc specs and sw specs: Software: XWA english Tie Fighter Collectors CD english X Wing CD english
O.S.: WinXp 32bit Italian
PC Config: processor: Athlon 3000+ MB: Abit NF2 rev2.0 Audio: soundstorm onboard audio Mem: 1gb ram Video: Asus 9999gt (nvidia 6800gt 128mb) HD: 20giga , 120giga CDROM: DVD\RW LG 4061b
I did a full TFTC and XWA uninstall, removed all remaining folders/files, rebooted pc. Defragged the disks also. Reinstalled XWA, launched game, created a pilot, configured then played a pair of skirmish. Rebooted pc. Launched TFTCWCTv1.2.exe. Took some time to create the folders and wave files from Tie Fighter Collectors CD english. I've found this:
"...\LucasArts\XWingAlliance\Wave\Frontend\" its full of folders but all empy, only "frontend" folder itself and "Medalandpromotion" contains many *.WAV files.
"...\LucasArts\XWingAlliance\Wave\Missionvoice\" its full of folders which are full of *.WAV files.
The patcher created in the "..\LucasArts\XWingAlliance\" a folder called "BackupTFTCWCT" which contains a SFX with a sfx.lst file
Now that i did this test, i just have to reinstall TFTC or i have to do something else? thx in advance!
Thanks, looks like it worked like it suppose to Redwolfwere. I would install the TFTC launcher program first, then install the above test utility second. Remember this will ultimately be part of the next release (a fixed version) so thanks for being patient.

Ok, i did the full reinstall XWA- TFTC- TFTCWCT. Using the TFTC launcer i hear the Commander Voice before the real briefing, no voice during briefing, no voice during missions. If i use the Xwing alliance launcher i hear all the voice of commander pre and post briefing and no mission voice. So this is working half for me
Look you guys worked hard on this thing and you've worked even harder trying to keep things legit. Now, I'll be perfectly honest with you - if you were going to run into trouble with LA and TG for this stuff you would have heard from them by now - trust me! Also, slap me if I'm wrong but most of us (fans) who truly appeciate XWA and TF probably have legit copies of it and pride ourselves on it. I understand it only take a few creeps to ruin it for everyone but I figure the people here are honest for the most part. As for filesize/download/bandwidth issues, couldn't you use a batch WAV-MP3 converter and then post a link where people could download/find a shareware/freeware version of a batch converter - kinda everyone meeting everyone half way
To me it's no different than making a XWA campaign and posting a link to download XMOD from someplace else.
Just been reliving some fond memories playing tie fighter again. Thanks , great work!
Anyhoot. After going through the install I found that I had all XWA mission briefings. In mission was fine. After 3-4 hours reading these fora, fiddling around and even manually converting Voc=>Wav and learnign mroe about the folder structure of XWA/TIE than I ever wanted to know......I solved MY problem
Put simply I chose the wrong TIE cd on the install. If you have TIE95, and choose TIECD or vice versa then the copy/conversion doesnt work and the original XWA wavs are just left in their folders. - BUT....the install goes ahead fine otherwise which makes it very easy to overlook such a simple error. You'd expect the instal lto pick that up. (but hey this isnt commercial software so thats not a criticism guys.)
I correctly chose TIE95 (in my case) and fwarh! perfect!
I know theres deeper problems here that you're working on with 64bit stuff etc. But this just might help the odd person that *thinks* they're having that problem when actually, they;ve jsut been a dufus like me.
