CM Nova Discordia



An enjoyable fun mission! Well worth exploring at length :)

COL Phalk Sturm



Fastest mission in the Compendium. You can literally finish it in 2 seconds, being a golden choice for spamming or RtF. But you'd miss the magic and wit hidden in it. This mission is complex and fruitfully addictive. It is a race, a cypher breaking mini game, and what's more, as challenging as it gets. The creator made a bundle of tricks and twists the player will have to figure out if anyone craves the High Score. Recommended for those with some brain and gills. Try it, but beware, do it with patience and a high level of resilience for your own frustration if you want the top score.

A very intriguing mission. Reading the briefing is compulsory to know what you need to do in this one. Hard adds an additional little curl to the tail, and makes the race aspect a bigger deal. Flew this on the advice of the TAC (Pickled Yoda) and it's definitely worth the time.

FA Pickled Yoda



I have to say I'm very disappointed at the comprehension levels on display in these reviews. This is an elaborately constructed puzzle race. It's not a typical mission, the fact you can win quickly is not a sign of a bug it's just part of the design.

Ender has thought of a unique premise and executed it beautifully. You have to inspect 27 containers in the correct sequence under time pressure to move efficiently. On easy he thought of a way to use in-flight messages locked to a particular difficulty as a sort of walkthrough. On hard he adds some headhunters to get in your way.

Give it a go, and don't be dissuaded by these overly harsh scores.




This battle makes a parody of the word easy. If you have the faculty to look at the screen and manipulate your hands with the stick, you're going to succeed, and probably even come close to the high score. Maybe no one tested this with easy? Maybe someone left it here as a mercy battle for tournament points. Even so, cannot recommend.

I played on Easy. This mission lasted 14 seconds. It took me longer to load the game and write this review than it did for me to beat this mission. There's nothing positive to say about it, it's over before it even starts.

COL TheBlackxRanger



this missions literally finished in 14 seconds by targetting the container in front of you. im not sure what the purpose of this was, the missions was over before it began.

if it was a needle in the hay stack with your targeting disabled, it would have made a little more sense

Broken: I'll give this review as much time as this mission took me to comple.....

Ender, wtf!? I dont always like what Ender puts up there but at least I always felt he was trying. What is this mission? Utter garbage. Fly it for completion only, else best to stay away.

Filename:        folly1.zip
File contents:   folly1.tie, IMPERIAL.LST, Readme.txt

Software used:   XvTed, notepad.


note: the original .lst files in your train folder will be overwritten: back them up. 

1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle.

3] Press the X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter button to start XvT and fly the battle.
- Create a new pilot for the mission based on your name or PIN and the mission number. For example, 
SL Stele playing Free Mission 80 would make a new pilot file named "StelFM80." or a Pilot with PIN 
2883 playing Free Mission 69 would make a new pilot file named "2883fm69" 
- Begin flying the first training mission, fly on till you've finished training mission #1

This mission is part of a series of free missions that just test possibilities of the games
and create a "different" type of mission... ;)

Story Line
Many documents of the Science Office are Top Secret and as such need a bit more protection from being 
found. However, when the Science Officer asked the labassistant/buttler Igor to hide the plans 
concerning the newest Avenger fighter he kind of outdid himself...

Now we need the plans again, Igor is on leave and only left us a weird formula and 27 containers 
outside one of our labs. We have to crack his "AN-ZYPH EB CFIQ MSKLUT JVWX ORDG" formula to retreive 
our plans safely... or the boobytraps he set will destroy them.

We thought at first that it might be an unknown  language, but our protocol droid couldn't translate it.
 Now we think its code for the order in which you have to inspect those containers outside (of which 
only one contains the plans) or they will all just self destruct.

GENERAL: You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there), as far as i know no other patches are 
needed. To fly in Combat all players need the same version, make sure you all have the update by 
lucasarts installed.
