Post Help with Plant Listening Device Please !

I have had X-Wing Alliance kicking around for ages and keep getting stuck at the Family mission "Plant Listening Device". I can do the first bit fine, but once Aeron has planted the device and returns to my ship I cannot locate a Nav Buoy to jump the hell home. Am I blind, mad or just cr@p ?

Help me please

Neil

It's somewhere off in the general direction of the Strike Cruiser that hypers in towards the end there.

First of all, you are NOT cr@p. This is a difficult mission. Are your SURE she finished planting the device?? If the ZeroG troopers get too close, Aeron gets spooked and runs away. You have to shoot the troopers designated "Flying flight plan". They are the ones after Aeron. Tartet them and blast the heck out of them until they are gone. (hint) Don't waste your missiles on the fighters at the beginning of the mission. There are 3 waves of 2 trropers in each wave after that, the troopers attack you then the TIES, then.....well find out for yourself. Good luck!

You also have to kill all Stormtroopers that are inspecting the Sat, if they do, well, it wont be a satilite much longer and the missions over. Try to get them as close to the Assault Shuttle as posible, but not to close, the Assault shuttle can make short work of you.

My problem with this mission is the fact that SO many of those stormtroopers launch off that shuttle. It is hard to keep track of which ones are heading for Aeron. With that in mind I took a slightly different approach. I loaded torps at the beginning instead of missiles. I was very sure to be careful during the mission and when the shuttle hypered in I still had full shields. I flew up to the shuttle knowing I would take some hits and just cut loose. I fired several torps and then shot him up and he blew up before I lost my shield. Then I only had to deal with the few troopers that it launched before I took it out. That was the easiest way for me. You can't hang in long against that shuttle so just get close and cut him up fast.

Yeah, you have to do a lot of cycling. Use the F3 key and shoot til they're all dust.

Don't forget about your turret cannon's autofire. That's helped me make short work of a lot of problem targets, sometimes before I even get them in my forward sights.

Also remember about those missiles, they make short work of those metal-trousered pansies. Keep an eye on the ship that drops them as well; when it drops the troopers, they're easier to hit. Perspiration and persistance should get you through.
