I have the TFTC installed. How can I make PAUSE during the turorial mission in order to read the instructions on the left side pannel (I'm not a native English speaker) ? I need to familiarise with the (so many) buttons and keys. When I use ALT + P, I get a full black screen (but I can resume the game with the ESC key).
Thank you very much for your help.

Hello and welcome,
Alt+P is the right key to pause the game.
Unfortunatly for now the black screen seems to be how the game works. Maybe this screen behavior will be modified in the future.

UPDATE

Hello,
I've updated the windowed hook.

Now when the game is paused, the 3d scene will be rendered instead of a black screen.

I've also added a splash screen.
To set a splash screen, create an image named "Splash.jpg". If this image doesn't exist then "Alliance.jpg" is used. If this image doesn't exist then a white screen is rendered.

Is this updated just available for download?
Does this upgrade also fix that if you set f.e. resolution 800*600, it work only till you go in mission, when BTW the game switch to full screen mode.
Upgrade....
Just now I have try the new version, but keep the game in windowed mode does not work: the game come back in full-screen as soon as you go f.e. to select a mission.
Other problem (but I don't know if it is concerned to this version of the hook: when I exit the game, a process x-wingalliance.exe is still present in the task manager, and to run XWA again, first I need to kill that process in the task manager.
Thanks

You can download the updated hook with XwaHooksSetup.
It does not fix the issues with windowed mode.
