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-...

Battle for Naboo - Platinum Medals

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...

Re: Mission Editor and Wingmen

I've noticed that in some missions fighters collide with the Liberty while performing the Fly home order. This problem occurred in Battle 5, Mission 7, but it gets automatically solved when fixing the hyperspace singularity. However, I have also experienced the same problem in Battle 4, Mission 5, a...

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.

Re: And another one done! Presenting the Rebel Platform

I sometimes ask myself how can I have such a lack of brain cells.
There was no "Film" folder in X-Wing Alliance directory.

Thanks JeremyaFr, now I can look at the flight plans a little closer.
Your help is precious.

Re: And another one done! Presenting the Rebel Platform

Before criticising the XWAUP craft, I've also tested the vanilla version (it's actually v2.02) with GOG installation. There was none of the 3 mission problems. B-Wing and Y-Wing also fired correctly. As for the X-Wing engines they were all turned off in the CMD and all turned on in the external view...

Re: And another one done! Presenting the Rebel Platform

Just to clarify, how does the CRV Razor die? In my tests - which was wtihout the weapons patch - I noticed it was close, but Razor was always out of range of the Kothlis II blast. As far as I know, if you don't ignore the ATRs, that is the only way for the Razor to die. I confirm this. Tested at Me...

Re: And another one done! Presenting the Rebel Platform

I know that the number increase of simultaneous energy weapons is an optional feature. My idea is to use a slightly modified mission when the option is checked. Of course only if the community agrees. Edit: Just tried a few other missions, and I'm afraid many missions with capital ships need an inte...

Now, now ladies play nice Sorry Darksaber, but since the maximum number of simultaneous weapons was increased to 256, B4M5 is no longer a mission "for ladies". The Executor simply destroys every single object carrying the Alliance insignia in just a few seconds. I must confess that I'm not able to ...

I've just flown 5 times the fixed Battle 4, Mission 5. The ATRs no longer collide with the Platform. Excellent work, Jaeven! However, there are still a few problems left. During my second attempt ATR Talon 2 destroyed ATR Talon 1. This almost surely happened because of the "Returns fire" part of the...

The mental image I have of that is hilarious. Who needs an SSD when you can just send two ATRs to wipe the entire Rebel force.

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

From what I see, it’s true that even Star Trek goes in this section.
Admiral Darksaber, you really are a genius!
Even if much slower than hyperdrive, warp propulsion used by Galaxy-class Enterprise is the best choice when it comes to micro jumping part of the fleet.
