It's simple and relatively clean. I might rank it a notch higher if it wasn't for all the stationary cap ships in Mission 1 that you can destroy with ease. I sometimes question the CAB designation on these... but that's a quibble. As far as a battle goes, it's fine.
Nice little battle. Nothing spectacular, nothing annoying.
That was a relatively short but pretty decent battle all in all. I enjoyed the mission design and the plot, even though few missions could use a little touch. In the first mission you can easily obliterate the Auroran force without any penalty while the story claims they should all survive. No complains about some free points extra though! It was a fun flying.
overall, i liked this battle, although i hate X-Wing. :P
Understood should be that this battle was extracted from the original TIE-CAB and as such is practically ancient.. but the old-skool atmosphere and such is very much its charm. Also its bug free. Could do with an overhaul to port the officer briefings of corresponding TIE missions over to these.

The game will take it's mission information by preference from the harddisc, but might still give a warning. In that case - Ignore. 2. Locate your X-W Directory and open the folder labeled "Mission", or "Classic" in X-W95 (If your missions are set to Classic, else use the Missions folder in XW'95 as well.).

You need X-W CD or '95, as far as i know no other patches are needed. I cannot assure it will run on X-W disk as it might exceed its maximum craft amounts. You'd need the B-Wing and Imperial Pursuit add-ons to play.
