This is a true story about my girlfriend Cindy's two boys...Timmy, age nine, and Zach, who is eight. I'm not the only one in my house who plays Rogue Squadron.

In fact, if it weren't for Cindy's patience, I probably wouldn't have gotten through the Y-wing levels, at least not until the cheat book came out. But that's a secret...shhh.

Anyway, Timmy and Zach play as well...as one might imagine, it's brother against brother. Timmy, the older and louder one http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/wink.gif, is capable of flying and shooting very well...although he easily loses interest in the objectives and winds up flying around aimlessly. He insists that he is a better pilot than Zach, who doesn't boast very loudly on his own behalf.

One day, while Zach was playing, Timmy was noisily trying to distract him and other brotherly games. Eventually, Cindy and I wound up trying to keep him quiet, and began arguing with him about who was better--he or Zach. Just as Timmy was loudly protesting his superiority, I noticed that Zach had finished the level (Chandrila) and was quietly setting down the controller. I looked at his score, and I nearly fainted.

The eight-year old boy had scored a 100% accuracy rating on the Blockade of Chandrila, with the X-wing, and WITHOUT seeker missiles. Coincidentally, he looks remarkably like young Anakin in the movie.

Timmy does not boast about Rogue Squadron anymore.

Now, naturally, being the internet, SOMEBODY's gonna post about you lying, or a lot of what-ifs... like what if the squadmates were extra good?
what if he only did 4-linked cannons and fired only when very accurate?

but.. i'm not gonna be the one who posts.


*wink wink*

on my own behalf... Wow... that brings a little humbleness into us all.

Me? Lie? Everything I ever say is 100% the truth, and you have no choice but to take my word for it.

Why? Because I'm Imladil. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif

I don't think he had the laser cannons cycled the way you describe, but I always do that with the TIE interceptor to increase accuracy.

As for "good squadmates..." I don't know which version of the game you bought, but on mine...the other rebel pilot are IDIOTS!!! Stone-cold worthless, inbred morons who couldn't shoot down the Goodyear blimp on a sunny day--THOSE are the other pilots in the game! There were times when I wanted to get on the radio and make a few comments of my own...

Hmmm. Looks like you've been rummaging in the attic. This is an old, old topic about my ex-girlfriend's kids... http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/wink.gif

Wow that Timmy is good! I don't think I could do that on Mos Eisley, which is very odd considering when I used the cluster missles and still didn't get 100%, I mean how can you not get 100% when you shoot down 5 Imps with 1 shot. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/mad.gif Dumb kid trying to make me look bad!

here's a thing i found to get a HIGH accuracy: every shot to the enemy adds to your score, missiles only count as 1, you can get a super high accuracy (or so i heard) on speeder levels by shooting down the at-ats instead of tow-cabling them. Try it and tell me if it works, balmorra would be a good practice site.

Then you get mad and start smashing your computer/N64 into little peices than afterwards punish yourself for doing such a stupid thing and getting to mad.
