Battle Reviews

CM Cupcake



4 just because I couldn't beat the version on the 'hard' setting, so I don't have a strong opinion either way. Still, I'd recommend this one. It's a bit different, kind of two different missions in one, as explained in the briefing. I tried the hard version 5-10 times, but never felt like I got anywhere close. On 'easy,' I was able to beat it in about seven minutes, so a positive thing is that it's not a huge time commitment.

It seems everyone has forgotten the TAC's birthday, and his wrath will be splendid.
Unfortunately for TAC Sienar, we have learned of his plans, and have taken appropriate
measures to protect Imperial assests!


 - Removed various unused craft.
 - Set difficulty levels for bouys and backdrops to reduce game engine load.
 - Corrected orders for easy wingmen to hyper to region 1 instead of 13 on mission complete.
 - Fixed trigger for 'Welcome back' message.
 - Added TAC's note of dissension. :P

 - Changed HARD X-Wing targets to attack all of Delta and not only the player.
 - Changed goal text to genericly refer to enemy fighters as "Rogue TAC fighters" instead of by their type to prevent confusion about fighters meant for the other difficulty.
 - Removed confusing "Don't leave yet." message that displayed after main goals are complete.
