Battle Reviews




After countless mindless battles I've been flying this one suddenly felt like I was being given a cognitive test. It's not difficult, but the in-flight instructions are quite verbose and you really need to pay attention to them. It's not a hard mission (on easy at least) in the sense that I never felt I was about to lose, it was more that I wasn't sure I was going to win. Again, just pay very careful attention to your messages. Not a great way to structure a battle imo, but worth it for the points.

COL Genie



Well, so much preparation and energy went into it but nothing worthwhile came out of it. It looks like a test mission, which wasn't fully cooked and made it to the compendium, someway, somehow.

COL Phalk Sturm



I didn't get the point behind this mission. There is probably an elaborate and comedic plot beyond inspection and self-destructing TIE Assaults, but I could not grasp it. Easy 1 point of FCHG in the bag, though.

HA Frodo March



The best part of this mission is naturally the TIE Assault...however it didn't work for me so I had to fly it with a T/A since XvT did it all by itself. Its probably alot better with the actual craft.

note: the original .lst file in your train folder will be overwritten

0] Make sure you havethe EHSP-XvT and TIE Assault patches installed.
1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle.
2] Check the Misc folder in your XvT one for additional material like patches, sounds etc.
- Download and install the sound package and put the contents into /Wave
3] Press the X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter button to start XvT and fly the battle.
4] Create a new pilot for the mission based on your name or PIN and the mission number. For example, 
SL Stele playing Free Mission 80 would make a new pilot file named "StelFM80." or a Pilot with PIN 
2883 playing Free Mission 69 would make a new pilot file named "2883fm69" 
5] Begin flying the first training mission, fly on till you've finished training mission #1

This mission is part of a series of free missions that just test possibilities of the games
and create a "different" type of mission... ;)

Story Line
New craft developed by the Science Office cannot just be released without being propperly 
tested. This testing is conducted by a step-by-step procedure that goes by all the various 
functions of each craft. Because of craft specifics not all craft pass all tests but they 
need to at least do what they are built for.

This mission is primarily made to test these new craft, with as example the TIE Assault - 
which can do most of the things any craft can. Follow the procedure carefully and make sure 
to listen to the radio messages - they guide you through the whole process.

Good Luck, and hope the pressure seals hold on the reactor...

GENERAL: You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there) and the EHSP and TIE Assault Patch.

Other Information
