All current known bugs up to 28th December have been fixed and included in XWAU Mega Patch: Update 1

Please see our Forum post for other questions and any installation issues can be posted in our Help section.

The first thing you should do is run Babu Frik's Configurator from the Launcher menu.
In that you can setup your graphics and VR options to improve things as you wish.
Don't forget to read our Beginners Guide for help too.

Make sure Mip Mapping is turned ON in the Video options, Hardware section.

Be aware that some people report issues with high refresh rates on monitors.
Changing it to 60hz can help fix that.

A few people have been experiencing some issues with joysticks and controllers.
This is because there is a new way of configuring them in XWAU. With so many modern Joysticks etc and and old game it's tricky.
With the Mega Patch release more people are trying our new system so we may find a few small bugs.
This isn't like Squadrons so don't expect XWA to accept all the latest gear in one click but it's better than before.
If you have any issues then read and post in this topic for help.

If you are still using the old CDs for XWA it is getting harder to support that system. We do recommend you upgrade to a digital version such as sold by GoG.com etc. https://www.gog.com/game/star_wars_xwing_alliance
If you find you are missing some sounds you need to copy the WAVE folder from both CDs to the XWA main folder. If asked to replace any files then select not to do that. The sounds will then run from your PC.

Even though the game is old we are pushing it to it's limits in areas. Try not to be too focused on FPS numbers and enjoy the game :)

Please run the game from Alliance.exe. Not Steam or other shortcuts.
This is an example of where I mean
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars X-Wing Alliance\Alliance.exe"

We have posted a small Day one fix for the few critical issues that have been spotted.
You can find it on the Download page.
