well i am using this cheat mod which just gives me LOTS of health and shields, but not the shuttle so i gotta take good care of it.
did u send the shuttle at the top left corner INSTANTLY when the mission started?
or did u send him after destroying the 3 space stations?
cause if u only sent him after the 3 space stations were destroyed, by then the eclipse would be somewhere in the middle and no where at the upper left corner.
was the eclipse still there when you sent the shuttle at the top left corner??
