and much of what came between, including the classic shooter Starsiege TRIBES. With most of the Tribes series being multiplayer focused, it may be hard to find games, but the free releases may influence that

After installing DOSBox you can then use the Sierra installer to get Earthsiege I to work. I can confirm that it works. The page also has a link to run Earthsiege II on modern 64bit systems. I could run it but ran into an audio issue, something about _INMM.DLL.

The Starsiege: Tribes link says it's StarsiegeAndStarsiegeTribes, but as far as I can tell it's only Starsiege, which works (on Win7 at least) if you follow these instructions. You'll also need a no-CD patch to play the campaign or multiplayer, along with an updated master server.

I have no idea why they included a download for Aerial Assault, since you'd likely need to use a PS2 emulator to run it. But hey, it's there.

Tribes 2 works but only offline, since it's the original version and tries to connect to the old servers. I'm not sure if you could patch it or would have to simply download TribesNext instead.

I didn't bother to download Vengeance but I assume it's similar to the T2 install; works fine offline, but no online connectivity.

Something to note is that other than the T:V link, everything is in .iso format. You'll need to use something like Clone DVD to access the files, unless you feel like burning them to a CD.
