    well, I'm home alone this weekend.

    PARTY AT MY PLACE

    :p j/k

    Anytime anyone wants to play XWA - I'm keen.

    I think later today I'll make up (and save) a battle. And then play it with you guys later.

    something like:

    Team one:
    SFL: A-Wing
    Kitt: X-Wing
    Graal: A-Wing

    (with some wingmen)

    against

    Team two:
    StarDestroyer
    TIE Fighters
    TIE Interceptors
    TIE Bombers

    or vis-vera where we play IMPS and take out a Mon Calamari Cruiser.

    if its a fighter vs fighter game i'd go for TIE D or A-Wing, but if up against a Cruiser or SD I'd go with something like a Missile Boat - 80 warheads are good for taking out shields on big ships :p

    Yaeh but the B-wings good at that too especially with linked cannons, have you been too www.xwaupgrade.com to get graphics enhancements ,shipsets etc?
    They also have links to sights with EP1 shipsets and missions.

    i have the upgrade, but playing online hving awesome graphics is a bad idea due to lag.

    I dont have any MODs (Ep1 ships) as I'm leaving soon anyway and I dont play that much.

    My favourite Rebel ship will always be the X-Wing. I like a ship with decent guns. And it's the ship which Luke blew up the Death Star in.

    My worse rebel ship would probably be the Y-wing of Z-95. What pieces of junk!

    Nothing beats the Tie Fighter for sheer patheticness though. One blast from an X-wing and you're gone.

    I think my fav Imp ship is probably the Assault Gunboat. Looks cool when you fly it from behind.

    "One blast from an X-wing and you're gone."

    na - takes at least 2 individual shots to take out a TIE fighter in XWA. I've been right on the tail of many-a-TIE and used one shot in an attempt to take it down in one shot - but two perfect shots kills.

    What is the key to press to get the outside veiw? - I've forgotten

    Well as SFL said we finally got it all up and Running the XWAupgrade was causing hassles, was lagging out and dropping packets like crazy, so I gues the moral of the story is.....

    DON'T ATTEMPT TO PLAY XWA OVER THE NET WITH UPGRADE INSTALLED!!

    and for anyone else out there, watch SFL in Tie D cos he tends to kick Butt :)

    So SFL we'll have to play again, hopefully with a few more players!! :p

    upgrade 2.02 installed, XWAupgrade shipsets etc removed = NO LAG.

    I got the multiplugs "removed" because I said I'd cook dinner at 6:30. I started playing JK with a mate and at 6:53 I saw the time. [face_plain]

    oh - THAT upgrade. Yea - I dont have that ships / graphics one installed. Best not to use it (as you've found out :p) If they had named the "upgrades" differently I wouldn't have been confused. :p

    I very much doubt Dad would know if your LOTR answer is right or not, Graal.

    Ha Ha, so the big brother puts in an appearance!.
    hows things JP keen to play XWA sometime?

    If I was SFL I'd be more concerned about dad knowing about these boards and checking for posts! :)

    had hardly knows how to turn the PC on, let alone check to see if I've posted here (I'd place money on dad not even knowing where "here" is.

    I'll talk to him tonight. Then hopefully we can organise a good XWA game between us.

    Dad, playing XWA? [face_laugh] He couldn't even finish one race in Colin McRae Rally on PC, I'd hate to see him try and shoot down a TIE fighter. :p

    (he still hasn't even seen TPM! :eek: And I have the VCR tape of it, and have had it for about a year!)
