Battle Reviews

I flew this as part of Raise the Flag competition 2021. Overall, the battle seemed straightforward with no major hang-ups. There is not much to say about it. It was fun but the battle did not contain any elements that makes it stand out from nearly every other battle you have ever flown.

pretty straight forward battle, a few capture missions here and there, some capital ships to blow up. took a few tries to beat it as it was difficult at times. no issues with bugs or anything like that

This one was better than the last one the creator made. A good variety of craft to fly which is always entertaining. It is difficult with the flight speed being low on some of the craft to really go after targets, but it makes it more of a challenge. Enjoyable missions and a decent story too.

I played on Easy. There's good things and bad things about this battle. It's varied and has some cool mission ideas, but there's also a lot of waiting. In the final mission, you have to wait forever for it to finish. You also fly a shieldless TIE against waves of E/S in the final mission. It's easier to just sit back and let the AI finish it, even though it takes forever.

I don't remember in full detail the original TIE Fighter battle, just the story overall. Seems like a good adaptation. What I do remember is that in general I had to kill a LOT of Y-Wings back then in my trusted shieldless TIE Fighter. Moreso than Z95s. It's funny playing this battle with my 2021 goggles. All of a sudden it doesnt look so great. 4/5 of course, better than the typical 3 but this battle shows its dated approach despite originally being made by professionals.

Superbly recreated. Who wouldn't love to meddle in the Sepan Civil War? The missions are a pristine reproduction of the original TIE Fighter missions. Even the wavpack provides the original audio. Awesome work.

Another faithful re-creation of TIE into the XvT engine. Nothing beats starting out your Imperial career on the illustrious Station D-34. Mission #3 is a personal favourite of mine. 4 stars due to not being original content. No bugs found

Playing the TIE campaign in XvT is, in a word, joyful - all of the things I dislike about the TIE campaign (mainly the engine) are removed while most of the things I like remain. Shame you don't get the cloaked figure or General Frown's briefings, however...

Absolutely outstanding conversion of this TIE classic to XvT, including inflight speech!! It works flawlessly and I almost felt I was there again. Definitely better than half of the current XvT Compendium but we could expect no less from Ender. A big FAT THANKS, Admiral, for making it possible for us to enjoy again this splendid battle on XvT steroids! And I don't give you a 5 just because, you know... originality... :P

A nicely done Battle, with a decent storyline and good difficulty options.

Battle Bug Reports

1) Shuttle group Nazaar is supposed to give Bonus points if 100% of it complete mission, but I've saved their arses more than once allowing them to arrive to the VSD Protector in once piece and no Bonus points were awarded. There's no inflight message either.

2) Also, E/S group Typhon, which arrives as soon as the SPC Glas finishes docking (or is disabled but that's pretty silly, for none will ever come to repair it and the mission is screwed), hypers out almost immediately for some reason instead following orders and attacking the SPC and the SHUs.

I've only played on HARD.

Mission 5: Message indicating friendly TIE Bomber group has entered the battle appears only when the second wave launches.

"End a prolonged civil war."

The release of the Emperor's Hammer Shippatch made it possible to make full conversions
of TIE battles for XvT. This conversion was made using more then just "tie2xvt", about every 
aspect except the actual texts was changed to get better results in XvT - however great care 
was taken to retain the same atmosphere as the TIE version had.

This battle happens just after the Battle of Hoth and is Mareek Stele's second campaign.
All official TIE Fighter missions of the first 7 battles are part of the Emperor's Hammer History.


The Sepan Civil War was a conflict between the Ripoblus and the Dimok of the Sepan system for over 
forty years. 

It is unknown exactly when the conflict began, but it is known that by 8 Before Palpatine, it had raged
for several decades and become sufficiently violent to draw the attention of the Galactic Republic. 
In an attempt to diffuse the war, three different Jedi missions were dispatched to negotiate a peace. 
The final mission was staffed by Jedi Knights Empatojayos Brand, Bultar Swan, and Chellemi Chuovvick. 
Unable to mediate the dispute, questions surrounding a potential Sepan secession from the Republic 
became common. 

The Sepan Civil War raged on through the Clone Wars and the establishment of the Galactic Empire. As 
Palpatine's Empire set about restoring order to the Galaxy and suppressing the growing Rebellion, the 
Sepan conflict was forgotten.
