Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



Not very fun. You have to inspect A LOT of containers and transports and if that wasn't enough, you have to "wait" around for more transports to come, which the final one didn't show up for me until about the 10 min mark

COL Phalk Sturm



Boring mission. A shame, because it's really well put together, but the action is inexistent, and although I really like inspection/recon missions, this one was too long and confusing. Targets were not well arranged and turned out to be kind of a mess. Really, as Genie said before, avoid this mission, unless you have to earn one FCHG point worth of a plague.

RA Genie



You have to inspect a combination of 50+ craft and containers. Looks like the idea of 'fun' is warped in some people's mind. If there was at least some kind of exciting layout, some kind of dynamic developments. Risk during inspecting? Nothing. The only fear you will have in this mission is the dread that out of the 1 000 000 craft you need to inspect, you may leave one out and need to refly the mission (which fortunately didn't happen to me). Avoid this mission like the plague.

COL Rau Aznable



A challenging mission. Fun is guaranteed.

Installation of Mission:
The EMAIL.TXT and Mission.lst replace your original files, so back those up!

1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle.
2] Check the Misc folder in your XWA for additional material like patches, emails or sounds. 
3] In EHBL, create a new "EH Pilot" in the Game Menu (Check "Prepare for EH Battle").
4] Press the X-Wing Alliance button to start XWA and fly the battle.

Installation of OPT:
This not really a new craft, just a new paintjob. It's recommended to be used only for 
missions that involve only Cloakshapes of the Emperor's Hammer and not any of opposing forces.
If you want to do so you have to install it via a patch as a new craft.

- Place the OPTfile in your FLIGHTMODELS folder.
- rename CLOAKSHAPEFIGHTER.OPT to CLOAKSHAPEFIGHTERbk.OPT or something like that.
- to change your Cloakshapes back, reverse procedure.

This mission is part of a series of free missions about each of the squadrons in the ASF doing 
missions following their squadron objective in their assigned craft. Each mission tries to give
a feel and a bit of history of each of the Squadrons. All the storylines of the missions are
interconnected and have the ASF Squadron join together against a common foe.

Story Line
When the Vanguard picked up RA leeson at Buoy PYR-45.34.-6 we encountered smugglers from the Genko 
System - who then got reinforced by Rebel forces.... which would indicate that the Rebels and Genko 
are getting a bit overly close.
Our mission is to hyper to the Genko System and see what's happening there now, a year after Python's 
strike. You are to inspect all Genko freighters and if you encounter any rebels you are allowed to 
wreck some havoc.
