Re: New Yavin IV and Sky Collection 2018

I see the temple of the blue leaf cluster and great temple. I presume that the temple of Exar Kun is too far northeast, and the mining outpost is too far south. As I recall temple of the woolamander is way southeast. So those aren't included I imagine? Are you referring to the position of the templ...

Re: New Yavin IV and Sky Collection 2018

Awesome! I hope for a Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike mod for X-Wing Alliance in the future.
The first mission Revenge of the Empire will look great.
Of course I intend the part where you are not on foot.

Re: Craft stat rounding effects

That +0.5 for the speed shown in the Tech Library seems to confirm the rounding effect theory at first sight: decimal portion>0.5 implies that the following integer is shown. I will try some experiments with BinHexEdit ver 0.5.25, which should be a little more accurate than MXvTED ver 4.0 Final. I w...

Re: Craft stat rounding effects

The Shield Power and Hull Rate of the Mon Calamari Star Cruisers have been updated a few months ago for both X-Wing Alliance Upgrade Craft Pack v1.5 and Darksaber's Ultimate Craft Pack v2.5. This is a discrepancy between MXvTED v4.0 Editor and the Tech Library I've noticed: MC80 Liberty Star Cruiser...

Craft stat rounding effects

Hello brave pilots, starship designers and tactical officers. An interesting thing I noticed while I was checking all the craft stats is that in MXvTED v4.0 both in the vanilla XWA v2.02 and with XWAUCP v1.5 installed the TIE Interceptor has a speed set to 110 MGLT, whereas in the tech library and i...

Re: Custom Hangars

You are right, Bman. I've just tried to land on an added Azzameen Station in Battle 1, Mission 1 and it still shows the Calamari cruiser hangar, but from a different distance. Of course I've also tried the other thing: landing on an added C/CRS Defiance in Battle 0, Mission 3 and it shows the Azzame...

I took some screenshots of those annoying visual effects I was talking about. The Executor overlapping the Alliance Station can only occur when playing Easy. I'll see what happens if I move down the station 0.50 klicks, but I will also move all the docked crafts accordingly to keep as many of the ch...

Re: And another one done! Presenting the Rebel Platform

I also tried to uninstall the XWAUCP v1.5 mod and the game, then I reinstalled the old GOG version (the one downloaded before 24 January 2018) and updated it with the XW...

Re: Mission Editor and Wingmen

No. It seems I didn't explain well. This is what needs to be investigated: In Battle 1, Mission 7 the B-Wings never collide with C/CRS Defiance while performing the Fly Home order as far as I've seen, and the "No Effect?" boxes are set to 7-1-0 for the first B-Wing FG, 10-1-0 for the second and 4-1-...

Hello brave pilots and tactical officers. Have you ever played Battle for Naboo? It cannot be installed on 64 bit systems and it was never released on GOG or Steam. When the CD version was released in 2001, Battle for Naboo was criticized due to the already dated graphics, because it had nearly the ...

Re: Community project: AlliED "unknowns" repository

The highest number in Allied’s ‘percents.txt’ (50) caused the X-Wing to arrive when the A-Wing was at 21.0km from the Buoy. This sounds interesting. I've seen that a fighter cannot engage a target (I mean "Attacking target" on the CMD) farther than 21.0 klicks from him. However, once the fighter ha...

I've noticed that the Ferryboat Liner has different shield and hull values in the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade craft pack v1.5 compared to the X-Wing Alliance v2.02 vanilla installation.

Re: GOG version. The screen becomes semi-transparent white in the hangar and freeze the game. :hilfe:

The new version (GOG version) is dated 24 January 2018.
I've read the Changelog.
Internal Update (24 January 2018):
enabled DirectPlay on install (Windows 8 / 10)

I don't think this has something to do with this problem, but just give it a try downloading the new version now.

I see that the GOG installer for X-Wing Alliance has been updated on 1/22/2018.
Did you download it before or after this date?

Re: 7-Zip compression and TIE files

Thanks JeremyaFr.
So I can upload files using 7-Zip or share them using Dropbox.
Both are viable options.
I find 7-Zip more useful for films than missions, because of the limited space in Dropbox.
