Go into your options, click on starfighter and then click the "inverty Y axis" option -- or something like that.

Thanks

Also, how do you take a walker down? I never seem to stay right there around it.

jump into the pilot position of the speeder, press "f2" (default) to have a bot jump in the tailgunner position.. approach the at-at flying as low as you can and circle the legs. the bot will deploy the tow cable (and you will see when it is attached). after attaching, fly around a few more times and then get outta there

also, press the backwards button (default = "s") while circling as this will give you more control over the speeder.

you will not be able to see the walker while circling since it will be outside of your field of view, so you can check your relative position on the map.


feeling froggish? leap..

I don't think it is unbalanced at all. I've had about 50/50. If the ATs STs and rocket troops work in concert it can be very tough. But the Rebs just have to work together as well.

About the use of taking out the shield generator. That is very very important. It is a free command point for the Rebs. When one side has more command points than the other, the side with less begins losing reinforcements (the higher the difference the faster the rate). With the generator down you HAVE to get one of the further points to make up for it, which can be real tricky when theyre camped with STs.

to get mines you must be in the heavy weapons class (shocktrooper, vanguard, Arctrooper or assault droid) then press the switch secondary weapon (deafult g for PC) you will then have the mines. or time mines be the wookiee smuggler for the rebels it's secondary weapon is time bombs that detonate after 5 seconds



BTW: if TK is in this forum I spelled wookiee right

It depends on teamwork, sometimes I never get a gunner for my Snow Speeder, so 99% of the time that The Rebels loose, It's cause' of the lack of Snow Speeder gunners and or Snow Speeders.

I just discovered the other night that those Satellite dish guns (not sure what they're called) actually do damage to the AT-AT's, and with the zoom you can actually inflict a lot of damage on them and destroy them before they reach you.

However you're super vulnerable to infantry while using one.

Nice that they aren't as useless as they were in the movie!

You don't need two players. All you need is a pilot and a bot in the back seat. On the PC game, put the snowspeeder down next to a rebel bot and hit F2 (the "follow" command) and the bot will jump in and take care of the cable while you pilot.

Taking down AT-ATs is easy enough. My problem is that when I am focusing on the AT-ATs, the rebs on the ground get overrun and we loose command points.
You don't even need a bot to fire the harpoon, with a bit of practice it's fairly easy to do it all yourself.

Jump in a speeder and fly towards the ATATs. On the way there, switch to the gunner seat and point the harpoon all the way to the left or right. Switch back to the pilot seat and line up to pass the ATAT's legs so that the gun will point at the legs the way you left it aimed. As you pass the legs, slow right down, switch to gunner seat and fire the harpoon, then quickly switch back. If you hit the legs, all you need to do now is circle the ATAT a couple of times (staying low). If you didn't, come round and try again. Like I said, takes some practice but it's pretty easy and a good skill to master for online games when you just can't find a decent pilot/gunner.
