With the re-releases of X-Wing and TIE Fighter, this would be a good time for me to remind users that we also take questions about all of the games in the series (not just X-Wing Alliance) on XWingAlliance.net. The users there tend to be more familiar with the games than the users in this "Classic Gaming" section, so help will be more forthcoming on XWA.net.
While this post is not about XWA, it does have to do with one of the other games of the series, so "XWA General" seemed the appropriate forum. Thanks to Native Client (NaCl) and a port of DOSBox for it, you can now play TIE Fighter (the original DOS version) using only Google's Chrome web browser. The link below has the pertinent information: http://www.swtorstrategies.com/2011/05/play-star-wars-tie-fighter-in-chrome.html
Hi, Recently I've been re-playing LucasArts' "TIE Fighter" with the goal of completing all the bonus (and secondary) objectives in every mission. I've enjoyed the challenge so far, but I'm absolutely at a loss when it comes to Battle 13, Mission 4. My question, essentially, is: How do you get Corellian Transport Opos to appear? For those that may remember this mission, you're in a missile boat -- launching from Imperial-class Star Destroyer Garrett -- seeking to recapture (or destroy) a missile boat that has fallen into Rebel hands. It's held in one of six containers near a Rebel platform (the Enin'sd). Now, during the battle, a few things happen: a Rebel strike cruiser (the Piimi) shows up and engages the Garrett; a Rebel modified corellian corvette (the Keeper) shows up and tries to dock/enter hyperspace with the container that holds the stolen missile boat; much later, a Rebel frigate (the Equator) shows up in a last-minute attempt to destroy the Garrett. At no point, however, does a corellian transport named "Opos" arrive, and -- after much trial and much error -- I'm totally out of ideas as to how to trigger its arrival. Anyone know the answer to this puzzle? Best, R. C. Kent
