Sample dosbox.conf file

Windows 7 -- Allows VESA emulation for high-res graphics while in flight mode. Sound entries are optional (see Sound)

Under Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and DOSBox 0.74 the following configuration produces excellent results. Other configurations resulted in lagged, slow, noisy audio and choppy in-flight video.

Music

Selecting General MIDI instead of the default OPL sounds a bit more realistic. LucasArt's sound patch may be needed to resolve some General MIDI hanging notes: http://www.lucasarts.com/support/update/tie.html

Joystick in TIE Fighter

The following site mentions basic instructions on setting up a joystick in TIE Fighter: http://www.jonathanmoeller.com/screed/?p=176. An update to the page also directs users having trouble with joystick setup to LucasArt's support page, where several updates can be downloaded, including a joystick update: http://www.lucasarts.com/support/update/tie.html.
