An enjoyable mission - I played on easy - lots of mines to clear, which is good practice for those sort of missions - last primary objective arrives about 10 minutes in, in case you are wondering where it got to!

Played on easy, this was a fun little joy ride. It had a little bit of dogfighting, a little bit of taking down some cap ships and corvettes. Could it get any better? Yeah, actually. It could. You have to wait around at the end for two of your own ships to show up, and then wait again for one more...to inspect. A fun mission otherwise flawed by some pointless waiting.


Kill a Mon Cal Cruiser and then wait around. That's really what this mission is all about and not much else. At the end you have to inspect an ISD that your newly arrived INT pulled out of hyperspace, but that's all she wrote. Not sure if we could've done with a few more fighters or what, but it was fairly dry.

A blend of several underdeveloped ideas thrown together into the blender. But what came out of it earns a big fat wtf. :) Giving it a 2 instead of a 1 as it doesnt have any bugs from what I saw.

Good missions. It can be approached either from a GUN or T/A thus giving 2 different games. Quick and simple, it was fun to play. Worth a try

Fun Mission, with varying difficulty based on craft selection. Plus really good "COM Traffic".

A very good standard battle. It has nothing that will make you drop your jaw, it's nothing spectacular, just a standard ship battle. But it's still flawless and provides a good challenge. If you're a commanding officer, I suggest you bookmark this mission, because it should be great for competitions.

Installation 
------------
note: the original .lst files in your train and combat files will be overwritten, you will not loose 
access to your exsisting Combat missions but because of EHTAC regulations the Training missions are 
replaced. 

IMPORTANT! ONLY USE THE SINGLE PLAYER MISSIONS (TRAINING MISSIONS) FOR HIGH SCORE SUBMISSION.

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.
3] Press the X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter button to start XvT and fly the battle.
- Place these files into your /Combat directory: IMPERIAL.LST, MISSION.LST, REBEL.LST, ASFCMBM3.TIE
- 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" 
- Begin flying the first training mission, fly on till you've finished training mission #1

Description
-----------
This mission is part of a series of free missions about each of the squadrons in the ASF doing 
missions following their squadron objective in their assigned craft. Each mission tries to give
a feel and a bit of history of each of the Squadrons. All the storylines of the missions are
interconnected and have the ASF Squadrons join together against a common foe. In storyline these
happen after the larger Wing Battles.

Story Line
----------
The CRS Hopefull is having a rendez-vous with a Genko cruiser on the border between Genkoan 
and New Republic space. The New Republic Spine Security Force is trying to broker a peace 
between their allies the Genkoans and the Jeh'Ree - who had a falling out over a deal the 
Genkoans made with the Emperor's Hammer.

That same Emperor's Hammer has sent in a small force led by the VSD Gilded Claw to disrupt 
the meeting, hoping the Genkoans might decide not to deal with the NR-SSF if the riscs 
involved are too high. The problem the Gilded Claw will face however is a defence shield of 
mines the Genkoans placed on the border... but those same mines would attack anything of 
the New Republic too.

NOTES
-------------------
COMBAT NOTE: For this mission to work in MP, all players must have it installed on the same mission 
number, in this case "128". Preferably do not change this number.
FCHG NOTE: TAC won't let you fly Combat Missions or XWA Skirmishes for FCHG Points, use the Single 
player mission for all TC flying outside of combat competitions. 
GENERAL: You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there), as far as i know no other patches are 
needed. To fly in Combat all players need the same version, make sure you all have the update by 
lucasarts installed. 
SINGLE PLAYER: This mission was made as a Combat Mission, its goal is to be fair to both sides so it 
can be played instead of a regular melee. 
MULTI PLAYER: For multiplayer this mission supports 3vs3.

Other Information
-----------------

This is the first release of a very quickly made and hardly tested mission. 
Bugs could arrise - please mail me if they do - also if you have hints, death threats,
questions or apraisals.
