Skanks said:Well back when Wing Commander came out or possibly the year after, I was about 9 I think (23 now). I couldn't beat this mission (plus I hadn't learned what fun a joystick is). So my trick was this. I would get down to the Ralari on Autopilot. Once I got there I would turn around, set my navpoint to the claw then afterburn towards it till I could autopilot. After gettting to the claw I would autopilot back down again. Once I got there the Ralari has moved next to the Tiger's Claw and I was free to kill the Kilrathi at lesuire. Afterwards I set my navpoint to the Ralari, autopiloted to it, then set navpoint to the claw and autopiloted to that. Mission over.
If you do it properly it's damn hard though.... ramming and/or missiles help, plus a large dose of luck.
Anyone can tell me how to do "ramming"? I run into the Gratha with fullspeed but only kill myself.
How to judge if "his shields down"?First time to play Wingcommander Game.
I'm not really sure why but this mission seems easier on the SNES version of wc1. I have never completed it on the pc version (I just gave up and went to rostov) but I did it first time on the SNES.
One of the things that irritated me no end in WC1 escort missions was to complete the mission successfully, but have the game (incorrectly) tell me that I failed. It's a very tricky thing to manage and I believe what danr mentioned about flying manually helps avoid the game giving you the thumbs-down.but after I return to the Tigerclaw the colonel tell me i lose it !!!!
