This is a list of some issues, bugs or improvements found after the release of XWAUCP v1.6. Please read the instructions carefully.
It may not be a complete list and bugs are being addressed in several ways for future fixes and improvements.

LIST FROM JULY 12th 2020.

STARSHIPS

Container Transport v2.2
This has been altered to remove the Hardpoints from the 3 extra Gun Turrets. Otherwise it's very tough.
Bug: The LOD is showing at the wrong distances. So you see a very basic opt in the CMD screen.
To fix download the file below and replace the file in your Flightmodels folder. Online installer will be fixed at a later date.
ContainerTransportINI.zip


Corellian YT-1300 v2.0 / Millennium Falcon v3.0 - Only needed if you installed these versions only.
There is an issue with the LOD in the Opts showing missing areas.
The simple fix is to edit the INI files with Notepad and remove these lines of code and then save.

Code: Select all

[Exterior]
LodDistance = 0x7fffffff
The Opts will be fixed and released at a later date. We are also investigating turret issues.


Bug: YT Transport Gun Turrets - Moving by themselves. - Fixed on July 7th, 2020
A bug in Hook_Mission_Objects.dll made the the Gun Turrets slowly move without being touched.
To fix download XWA Hooks Setup from the download page and update your Hooks in your Main game folder.


Dreadnaught v2.2 - Only needed if you installed before June 13th.
Reduced the number of hardpoints to match the original TG Opt to make it less powerful..
Please download Dreadnaught v2.2 from the download page.
If you already have downloaded after June 13th then you do NOT need to do it again.



Escort Shuttle v2.2 Only needed if you installed after June 13th.
Bug: There is a small bug in the installer. It sets the Skirmish pic to the Lambda Shuttle not the ESR.
To fix download the file below and replace it in your ResData folder. Online installer will be fixed at a later date.
This is ONLY needed if you have installed Escort Shuttle v2.2 after June 13th 2020[/b]
EscShuttle_Dat.zip


Gun Emplacement v2.1
The DAT files are not set right in this installer. It will replace the X-Wing skirmish pic.
Darksaber also updated the Installer. It now includes both versions of the Gun Platform by Marcos Edson.
To fix download Datfixes.zip below and replace the file with your chosen install. Online installer will be fixed at a later date.
DatFixes.zip


Imperial Research Ship v1.1. - Only needed if you installed before June 13th.
ShipStuffIRS.dat is showing the Assault Shuttle and not the Imperial Research Ship.
To fix download Datfixes.zip below and replace it in your ResData folder. Online installer is now fixed.
If you already have downloaded after June 13th then you do NOT need to do it again.
DatFixes.zip


Strike Cruiser v2.1 Only needed if you installed v2.1 after June 13th.
Something in the installer is causing the Opt not to fire. So the installer has been taken offline for the moment.
Darksaber also fixed the Strike Cruiser so that it has the same amount of Lasers as the original Strike Cruiser.
If you are having this issue please download v1.1 from the download page and install it.
Then download this updated Opt plus INI and replace it in your Flightmodels folder.
StrikeCruiserFix.zip


T-wing: This fixes a problem with the Twing.ini file, plus it also fixes the Twing.opt as there where no missile hardpoints on the base model.
Darksaber also gave the T-Wing’s textures an overhaul, reducing the brightness of the flightgroup colours to make the look more aged and worn.
Please download T-Wing v4.1 from the download page.
If you already have downloaded v4.1 then you do NOT need to do it again.


Victory Star Destroyer v2
Bug: Small issues with the LOD distances. Online installer will be updated at a later date.


X-Wing v6
Bug: The Red Squadron version has a minor issue with the look of the R2 Droids showing hidden versions.
The fix for this is known but needs creating. Will be available in a later installer.


MISCELLANEOUS


Cockpit Pilots
Bug: There's an issue where the heads on the ships pilots go full exorcist and turn around too far.
The fix for this is under investigation but it is minor and won't effect anything major for the moment.


Lasers and Missiles v4.0
Bug: RebelTurboMedium is wrong and showing the same for Standard and Battlefront 2 options.
This is a minor issue and is being looked at, it will be fixed at a later date.


Explosions
Bug: There's a bug in the Effects from Blue Max that makes the Fighter explosion smoke too dense.
This is fixed in the latest Beta versions of the Effects. So will also be in the next full release after Version 1.1.3.2.


MISSION FIXES
There are multiple mission fixes in the works. They include Briefing icons, balance issues and cosmetic improvements.
They will be available at a later date when fully tested.


Battle 5 - Backdrops missing
Battle 5 and 1 Battle 6 mission have bad INI files. This means they will not show the new Backdrops.
To fix download the file below and replace the files in your Mission folder.
Missions_Resdata_Fix.zip


B0M0902 - Fixed Briefing Sound
XWA original bug. In the briefing the officer says Liberty and should say Defiance. I have edited the Wave file to correct that.
To fix download the file below and replace the files in your Wave folder.
BriefingWavFix.zip


ANNOUNCEMENT
We understand that the XWAU can be complicated at times. The team is working to improve the installation process to make it easier and less problematic.
These bugs and other improvements will all be fixed in the next major release asap at a later date in 2020.
We apologise for these issues and hope these fixes help you. Please report any other issues in the Bug Reports / Help Requests section.
