Game CD Required
Key configuration steps
Step 1 - USB Joystick Required
Step 2 - Create a directory to serve as the virtual C drive during your DOSBox session. I usually just create a directory named ‘dos’ and stick it in the root folder of my hard drive. You can stash the folder in your user profile, of course, but typing C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\Dos every time you want to play TIE Fighter rapidly gets tiresome.
Step 3 - Downlowd and Install DosBox
Step 4 - Open the DosBox Options file to make some simple changes:
Run DoxBox Full Screen
Add the following Quick Start commands
mount c c:\dos
mount d d:\ -t cdrom
Step 5 - Run DocBox. You will see a C:\ prompt.
Step 6 - Install Tie Fighter. Use 'D:\' then 'Instal' without the “'”
Step 7 - To play Tie Fighter, type 'CD TIECD' then 'TIE' (without the “'”) at the C:\ prompt.
