Proof of Concept The creation of these skirmishes was done while researching multiplayer options for the New Jedi Order Project's X-Wing Alliance mod. These are presented as a proof of concept of what can be done with the skirmish editor with a little bit of tweaking. All of these missions are playable in Multiplayer mode.
The skirmish types involve missions resembling the multiplayer missions of X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, as well as the ability to hyperspace between regions. The reason that this so-called MultiRegion capability was not implemented in the consumer product is unknown, but we do know that its implementation is incomplete, at best. The player must do some things manually to enable MultiRegion. Once enabled, it works with relatively few bugs. One will have to do things in a certain order, so please read the Installation Notes found in each of these ZIP files.
Draconious and Fingolfin were integral to the existence of these skirmishes. In fact, they were the ones who introduced the first multiple region skirmish back in 1999. I was brought on by Draconious to test these missions. Draconious' and Fingolfin's research can be found by clicking here. Since then the technology has disappeared from the Internet, as Draconious's original skirmish file was no longer available from his website. I found the file on a French website (I lost the url again, so if the webmaster reads this, please e-mail it to me), and so this project was born.
Each ZIP file also contains instructions for creating your own enhanced skirmishes. All I ask is that you please include all of the instruction files in your skirmish ZIPs so that anybody inspired by your work can create their own. And with that note, I present to you the enhanced skirmishes!
