Original battle before reviewing by the Tactical Office was 20 missions long! It's been included as 'lykosorginal.zip' though only the official 9 missions version counts for BSF.
I liked the story, the beginning I felt was the strongest part of the story, and the battles didn't really have much new to them but it was a fun battle.
Thanks to AD Yoda's advice I was able to launch the first mission. Initially, this battle started out very promising, flying a T/D is always a good excuse for me to play any battle, any time. But I grew tired as it progressed, because it felt it could have been much shorter and much better. Eventually you end in endless bashing of capital ships and pointless dogfighting, same thing, mission after mission, and it really demolished the good kickstart it had developed. The other aspects of the battle, are at acceptable standards, but it was the playability that suffered the most. Only recommendable for 9 FCHG points at a considerable price of time. Pity.
This was an average mission. Why? Nine missions of flying a TIE Defender, with the biggest threat really being my own torpedoes. That and a plotline I found difficult to care about having never been a member of The Directorate. That said, no bugs that I came across, so a solid three out of five.
re the crashing bug, I solved it by disabling backdrops in the graphics settings. perhaps the mission uses a bad one.
I'd also like to note that the use of dummy craft as goals, particularly in the last few missions, leads to several bugs. It's possible for the mission to fail but give no indication of that to the pilot.
Crashes as soon as it gets to the hangar.
