I decided to play the orignal X-Wing in my XWCS game for fun. So far it has been easy. (I got that Kaildor Crescent and the silver talons on the first 6 missions in Tour I.) Then the horror comes, I have to fly a stinking Y-Wing! Geez that thing is slow and horrible!
Mission 7 requires you to disable rogue X-Wings and kill the Interceptors attacking the shuttles recovering them. My wingman hyperspaced early so I can't get help and I have to face 3 T/I's, one wave is dead, another comes!

So any tips?

Cheat. Cheat untill your nose bleeds. Then cheat some more:p


Try Going from side to side, then a right/left barrel role, so the tie's can't lock onto your position. Then, use both your Lazer cannon and your Ion cannon. Thats really the only advice I can give.

Problem is, you cant use ions and lasers like you do in XWA.......
Now I'm even resorting to use torpedoes to kill T/I's!

woa.........wait.......
The y-wings don't have lazers OR Ion cannons??????

What kinda y-wing is it?

IT HAS TORPEADOES!!!! Y-wings are bombers!!!(i thought anyway)

Well, how strong are the shields? If they are tough, try crashin into some of those ties.

ohhhhhhhhhhhh

ok. I see what you meant now. I thought you were sayin that the y-wing doesn't have lazers. I was about to go medieval on some poor lucasarts guy.

I still recomend crashing into the ties if the shields are strong enough, though.

And one crash into a TIE will bring Pure 2 sided Green shields into one red ring..............

And I cant hope to catch up with an interceptor without going below maintence level...............

Damn my wingmen! Plus, they'll have some time to shoot you down from the kamikaze...........


*pays respect to his dad who beat the game on hard difficulty, or was that TIE Fighter?*

lol, I used to kill my wingmates because they would steal kills from me...as for the Y-Wing...have you tried flying without shields?

"You are unwise to lower your defenses."

Actually, that's not a bad idea, if you are an experianced pilot on the game.

Nevermind now, I just beat the mission, geez 40 T/I kills.............
And another part of the Kaildor Crescent!
Looks like I would've ended my troubles if I targeted X-Wing Blue Two...................


EDIT: WOOT! Battle droid!

I hate that in XWA I can't center on a target. It's like it bounces off or something. Sucks for long range shootouts.

is XWA for the PC or what?

yes, it is. You play as a correlian ship most of the time though. I don't know why they call it "X-wing Alliance."

what would YOU call it then?

XWA is my fav by far... though some of the missions just leave to scraching your head... but all 3 do that, so..:p :D


GO ACE!!!:D

I would call it "Correlian Ship Alliance"

:p

I haven't even played XWA in years. I need to find disk one. All I have is disk two :p

wouldn't that situation make his proposed title more appropriate?

what do you mean proposed? I AM Obi-wan Kenobi. see, check out the accent:

"It's not about the mission master, it's elsewhere........elusive...."

See?!?!?!?:p


And I think it was a good game, though the title was innapropriate IMO. kinda like "Attack of the Clones."

Not YOUR title, the GAME'S

If Incom was on Corellia, then even if you flew correlian ships AND x-wings [which I gather is the case] the title for the game proposed my obi-wan13 would still make sense.

X-Wing Alliance Makes more sense because it ties back in to the X-Wing games franchise...plus X-Wings are wayyyyyyyy cooler than the Corellian ships :p

dude, have you guys played tie-fighter, that defender is the shiznat!!! if you redirect shields, beam weapon and lasers to engines and put it on full throttle, you can go like 300 speed units.
nobody can touch you ( a y-wing goes like 80)
