Ho that neat walkthrough!
SPOILER WARNNG, SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!
But anyone having trouble finish this mission, of course http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif
K_Kinnison, Did that HD mean Hard Drive?

I use much simpler method to fly this mission.
EASY level: first FULL speed (lasers charging to none, shields to normal), take out all obstacles, watch out for the containers, fly straight to reactor chamber and destroy power regulator with 4 or 6 torpedoes (don't care about core - it will be destroyed), immediately evacuate (all mission takes about 8 minutes).
HARD: you can't destroy obstacles, so use the force http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif (i finished this mission only once and it was really haaard!)
K_K great job on the find and save!!!
I think I speak for everyone who has ever had trouble with this mission when I say THANK YOU! This will really help.
Once again, THANK YOU Moonstar !
If anybody wants to watch DSII .flm, please send me e-mail (email@example.com) - zip takes about 175 kB. It's nothing special (EASY), but I didn't recharg shield, average speed was over 128 MGLT, and I disabled laser node - total time 8:41.
When I finished, it there was only 5% shields.
The End cutscean really sucks, i mean, in X-wing it was cool and all, but now it's just BOOM its over! Could'nt it be a little longer??? How about some good Cinema here? It would be the perfect time to show a long movie like in the begining! Maybe chace down Antan or SOMETHING?
well, what can I say: I AM really, really impressed!!!
K_Kinnison, you brought a dream of me back to life! I was about to cry when I read your post (but girls don't cry, don't they? ;-)
It has been over a year ago when I wrote that walkthrough on June 20, 1999. I AM really surprised and proud to see it come back to life! This walkthrough is indeed a spoiler and is therefore not intended to be read by any other than people seeking for help!
Thanks again for reposting!
P.S.: I checked my harddisk and I too still have the original thread as pdf. ;-)
Fondas, I am also very impressed to see you become a moderator! Congratulations! Since last month I have installed X-Wing Alliance again for leisure time! I am flying a new pilot now doing all single player missions again - of course with no cheats! It is still one of the best games I have ever played!
I promise I will check back more often as soon as I get some time off in late August / early September!
Cheers to all X-Wing Alliance Players!
X-Wing Alliance rulez! May the force be with you in all missions,
Moonstar aka Michelle ;-)
Btw, is Lucas Arts coming up with a successor for this game? Any rumors?
To finish this post, let me quote the story behind the scenery for this post, too. It describes and bring back the night when I wrote this walkthrough!
Quote from original post on June 20, 1999:
(It actually took about one night to do the whole thing:
6.00pm: finished previous mission, wanted to finish game by dinner time.
6.30pm: Wow, this mission sucks, I keep flying into walls and pipes all the time. After
several attempts got stuck in the container area.
7.00pm: dinner (still stuck in container area)
8.30pm: got through container area (still crashing into walls and pipes, though!)
9.00pm: mistook zero-g-trooper area for the reactor chamber: after shooting all my torpedoes at that red thing in the middle I thought: o.k., this is enough, gonna look for help on this mission on the Internet!
10.00pm: found help on xwingalliance.com. searched through all the messages. found hints on what is still coming up in my mission.
11.30pm: blew up reactor for the first time! (Yeah!!!), but got "mission lost" very shortly after! (oooooohhhh!).
12.00am: discovered, that if you blew up the laser focus stuff first, your fleet outside is not in danger anymore and you have more time!
01.00am: got into the reactor chamber, blew up the reactor, punched it, took the wrong way at the path split, found myself in a black no-where with a huge firewall coming up from behind! Oh boy, I was really frustrated not to get out after fighting through almost all of thedeath star and not receiving credits!
01.15am: this time I am smarter: before blowing up the core, I investigated the final path split and shot ALL pipes. I watched the shape of the tube at the path split and found out that you just have to follow the tube you are currently in on your way out. Blew up the reactor, punched it again (never thought you could go at 100 through these tubes) and finally made it! Saved film!
02.00am: After watching the film several times and pausing at critical several times I decided to make a walkthrough.
03.00am: Finished walkthrough after writing, watching the film and flying through the Death Star one more time.
03.15am: Posted walkthrough.
03.20am: Got myself another margarita and enjoyed the show one more time! went to sleep.
01.00pm: read through the walkthrough again with a clear head, noticed mistakes and type errors, corrected them.)
By the way, if anyone has finished this last mission doing it "Lando-style", please send me the film!
// What do you mean: You are not my blind date?
I need to find a woman like that http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif
Any other women like nerds?

Actually, I didn't know you could shoot the pipes in the tunnel. Never thought to try, somehow. I just went in, and with some fancy flying, avoided the pipes.
Most of them can be avoided, and if you really have a bad crash, you can wait for yuor shields to recharge in the large room where the workers are setting up a Turbolaser.
If anyone is bored, he can give it a try. I flew that mission over 20 times before I could pull it off without shooting.
Yes, it's commonly known as the "Lando Way" ! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif
It requires some fancy flying, but it can be done
"No matter how pretty the bait,
a hook is still a hook !"
I want to thank you very much for what you did for me. And it worked very well I did finish the game, but I didn't record the last mission. That's ok I'll just do it again the whole game. Thank you all. And a very big thank you for the one who wrote this from the begining. Many thank. :)
It works. Read some other advise and found some goodies there:
1.) X-Wings and ties crushing from behind do a hell of damage to your ship, so avoid sharp slowdowns. You can try to fly faster and let them behind, but this way is not neccessary (it's heroic).
2.) Never try to turn around in a tunnel!
3.) Container area:
If you found yourself blocked with a container, jump into the turrets and back to cockpit, changing throttle and turning with joystick-rudder-function - but better fly between two blocks.
4.) Slow down 999 speed by scratching the tunnels bottom - you need slow flight for refreshing you shields.
5.) If you have reached the DS-lasers, you can get rid of the following ties with a trick: counting out the time between two lasershots, you reenter the tunnel just a few moments before it fires again - 3 of 4 times it worked and the row behind you is smashed to nothing (it's suddenly quiet). I needed to go this way, because my PC crashed regularly when reaching the big chamber with the troopers and ties still flying!!
6.) Fire the torpedos standing still (they travel at slower speed)!, than rush out, flying the better parts at highest speed to save time for the tricky ones.
At the end - there is no end: look for the mission editor and create new missions!
