Battle Reviews

Pretty good port of the original battle. Mission 5 seemed to have a slower start than the original, but otherwise it was good.

GN Triji Boliv



This was a surprisingly fun battle utilizing a variety of traditional ships. An interesting storyline connects the 6 missions into a cohesive battle. Ultimately though, I recommend this battle to all.

LC Gytheran



I flew this as part of Raise the Flag competition 2021. Overall, the battle seemed straightforward with no major hang-ups. There is not much to say about it. It was fun but the battle did not contain any elements that makes it stand out from nearly every other battle you have ever flown.

LC Solohan50



I played on Easy. I'm not sure how I feel about these missions. There's a lot of waiting around and dead time, which is always a negative for me. I also hate playing as a shieldless craft and seeing turreted enemies like ATRs thrown into the mix. I was originally going to rate this higher, but I've talked myself out of it with this review.

COL TheBlackxRanger



pretty decent battles, mostly finished themselves playing with unlimited waves, but some would take long. played this as part of rtf 2021 and its not incredibly long but not short either. no issues or bugs while playing

Some longer missions but nothing too crazy. ALways be sure to go after the ships going for your command ships. Sometimes a sneaky A-Wing tries as well. Decent story too that includes Thrawn.

RA Genie



It's nice getting the chance to refly the old classics with the spin of the XvT Engine. Bonus points for including the wav files. That's a personal favourite of mine, having wav files accompanying a battle. As for the battle itself, if you've never flown it, it's about establishing an Imperial Base, done in a very nice way.

MAJ Jaxx Nassin



Excellent work on remastering an original TF set of missions. Quite enjoyable and everything was very well balanced. Definitely play if you enjoy the original TF games and want to play them again with a newer finish

COL Phalk Sturm



Another faithful remaster of the original TIE Fighter battles. The author has managed to retain the original flavour and the missions, I dare to say, look better in XvT. The wavpack is a bonus, adding exact same radio chatter. Massive work. Thank you for bringing this to life.

LC randyrumrnr



This is a pretty neat concept - Taking TIE and putting it into the slightly newer XvT engine. Plays really well, very enjoyable. WOuld give it a 5 but not original concept. No bugs found

AD Stryker



Another accurate transfer of the TIE campaign to XvT, making it less of a pain to fly and so much more fun to complete!

Battle Bug Reports

CM Vanguard88


Mission 1: friendly fighters attack the containers after attacking the corvettes and destroy them if you do not inspect them immediately.

Mission 6: tie interceptor gamma attacks and destroys shuttle electra making completing the bonus goal impossible if you do not destroy or disable them.

9th inflight message is wrong; it speaks about VSD Stalwart arriving to recover all surviving TIEs, but it's set to show up on the arrival of ISD Vanguard which happens when M/FRG Ludwick is destroyed no matter if the Stalwart is there or not (it arrives at 9:55 mins. from start). Then there's that one about convoy craft not carrying any cargo including the Stalwart which is supposed to carry Thrawn, and this is due to wrong settings with those FGs "Special" ship's cargo blank and/or randomized.

"Establish a new Imperial base."

The release of the Emperor's Hammer Shippatch made it possible to make full conversions
of TIE battles for XvT. This conversion was made using more then just "tie2xvt", about every aspect except the actual texts was changed to get better results in XvT - however great care was taken to retain the same atmosphere as the TIE version had.

This battle happens just after the Battle of Hoth and is Mareek Stele's third campaign.

This battle runs sequentially to X-Wing Alliance Prologue "Family Business"

All official TIE Fighter missions of the first 7 battles are part of the Emperor's Hammer History.
