Battle Reviews

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.

COL TheBlackxRanger



most of my review for this one will be a hotfix for mission 4, unfortunately it requires you to use unlimited waves. for some reason you count towards the fighter kill count so as you may guess, i died about 40 times to get the percent up to 50. every death was worth 1 %

the rest of the missions were fine otherwise

LC Solohan50



I played on Easy. This was a quick set of missions. This has a lot less waiting around than previous battles in this series. There are some Mine Type 3 in the final mission, but they're pretty straightforward on Easy. All in all, this was decent.

RA Genie



This one looks unfished and filled with bugs. Missing orders from craft that are meant to be escaping, missing goal objectives and more. I believe it wasnt properly tested. Not sure how it has a high rating.

MAJ Jaxx Nassin



Not the finest set of missions to convert from TF. However, if you're fan of the original TF, then these missions will bring you joy to play again. The missions are bug free and play out well. Any issues I find with the missions is due to design choices from the original game.

COL Phalk Sturm



Pure joy, this titanic work Ender mBind put together. Flying the classic missions of TIE Fighter in the XvT engine is nothing but instant bliss. Also the wavpack is exactly the same audio as the old game. There we have one of the best sagas in XvT compendium, so far.

Battle Bug Reports

CM Vanguard88


I have found a workaround for the aforementioned bug but it only works on medium and hard. It is also a massive pain. You must A) lose all your wingmen and Rho 1 & 3 (There is no Rho 2 for some reason), B) call for reinforcements, C) lose Rho 4-6, D) destroy all of the cargo ferries and modified corvettes, E) Destroy all of the enemy tie advanced, F) let shuttle toten enter the platform's hangar then G) Destroy Z-95 group bandit.

Not enough enemy craft spawn in mission #4 making it impossible to complete.

GN Mark Schueler


In the 4th mission, I can't seem to get anything like enough enemy T/As to reach 50%, rendering it impossible.

GN Dax Corrin


Final mission something is missing, cannot set screen resolutions, uninstalled and re-installed XvT ship patch, same failure. Seems to be a B-wing from what comes on the screen, but not sure.

"Capture a defecting officer."

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 fifth campaign.

This battle runs sequentially to X-Wing Alliance battle #1 "Clearing the Way"

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