Just realized the mission wasn't ending right. It SHOULD work now. Probably won't though, just because of my luck.

Except for the mission not ending properly -- which it seems you are on top of -- I have to say this was a really entertaining one.

This is not the kind of mission that you will play for hours and hours building up a sizeable army and then wiping out the enemy; this is very much a strategy-oriented one where you have limited resources (about a dozen "Andys" and one "Fox" that must be protected at all costs), and strong and well-placed enemies who are guarding six power generators which must be destroyed in order to win the mission.

I found it challenging with a medium level of difficulty, and really enjoyed the premise. Well done!

Quite possibly my favorite Free Radical Mission, second only to Tables Turned! Very Happy Way too many cyan Andy's to stay comfortable with having so many members of the Black Nova squad at my disposal! It took quite a bit of thinking and more than a few saved games to win.

One thing, though: When the mission ended it froze up my Tungsten E in the last dialog screen. I thought I had downloaded the corrected version, but I'll download again to be sure!

Thank You.

Anyway, I though I had fixed the ending, but now it simply has a different problem. I don't have a clue why, but next time I have a bit of free time, I'll see what I can do.

Just after I posted, I found that "free time" I was looking for.
Amazing how that happens. Very Happy

What turned out to be the problem was the explosion cutscene. I don't have any idea how to fix it, so I simply made it go poofy. New version is uploaded, and it has the same chance of working as the North Pole melting... wait...It should work.

I like this mission a lot. My only complaint, and maybe I'm missing something, is that I don't know which person Fox is. I played a round of sending individuals off to die to see which one triggered the end of game, so I now know which one he is when the game begins. Before I did that, it was pure random chance before the game would end because he was the one who died. I had no way of knowing. Maybe color him grey or something.

Also, depending on the size of the budgets for the blue and red "forces," the game is, as far as I can tell, essentially unwinnable if you have less than 4 Andy's remaining (or else will take a REALLY long time to finish). Maybe change the criteria from "keep Fox alive" to "keep at least 4 soldiers alive" or something like that. Then once you drop to 3, end the game.

I always find it fascinating with these missions that involve a lot of super troppers, just how easy they are to beat (or get beaten, as the case may be). You'd think with 20 of them or so you should be unstoppable, but if you aren't very patient and dilligent with this level, they get slaughtered.

You can determine what type of unit is by holding down on them. A box will pop up on their name.

And Fox starts in the middle of the pack.

I did take your advice, and I have turned off repair for the enemies. I realize that if you have 5+plasma cannons firing at a turret, repair won't help it much.

This sounds like a fun mission, but I've hardly played an hour's worth of WI this summer! I'll play this as soon as I can and let you know how it is.

Very good mission. Just like most of the other users, I had to save alot and the end of the mission also froze up on my Tungsten E. In addition, the last e-com has a misspelled word. You mention that the mission was "heard" and meant to say "hard".

Great job and I look forward to you next challenge.

dws90 - finally beat this super challenging mission - thanks!!! I was left with 6 commando's plus Fox!

I'm definitely going to try other tactic's to see if I can complete the mission with more commando's.

This mission is entirely possible without a single ally death. Just be patient, thorough, and cunning. Don't forget traps, either. While EXOM can hurt you as a group, they can't beat you alone.

Woops, I just realized I left the comment for this mission on the "Black Apocolypse" thread. Well.
