Registry setup in Windows

The game installation consists of two things.

  1. Copy files to disk
  2. Registry setup

In Windows 7 or Vista you have to either use the modified installer disk, or manually install the game.

How to set up registry values for XvT

  1. Download either xvt_bop32.reg or xvt_bop64.reg, depending on your CPU Architecture. Use Right-click → Save link as…
  2. Open the containing folder
  3. Edit the file. Right-Click → Edit
  4. Change the installation path according to your game path.
  5. Enter the path of your game like this
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\LucasArts Entertainment Company\X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter\1.0]
"Install Path"="c:\\games\\XVT"
  1. Save your edits. Right-click the reg file → Import. This will enter these values. You can repeat this process in case any of your changes were incorrect. Changes will get overwritten on a new import.

Note: Enter the pathes exactly like this. Mind that backslashes have to be entered twice in a row. This is called “escaping” and is necessary. Note: The value “Source Path” is the name of the CD-ROM where it is installed from. However, this value is ignored by the game, so it's not important.


Download xwa.reg and use this file as described in the previous chapter.
