Game-specific instructions

TRAIN Format

Individual TRAIN format missions (single player) are the most basic of mission types to add to the game. Open up rebel.lst for Rebel faction missions or open up imperial.lst for Imperial faction missions. At the end of the file add some text in the following format:

//
[Mission Grouping Title]
//
100
Mission_filename.tie
Mission Name

The first three lines will create a separate section at the end of the list for the new missions. The title will show up as the text which is put between the '[' and ']' symbols. The fourth line is a number which is to be unique to that individual mission. It will keep the mission records for that mission separate from each of the other missions in the game. The fifth line is where you put in the filename (including the extension) that goes with this mission entry. The final line will be displayed as the mission name which can be selected from the in-game list. To add more missions, continue adding missions using the format from the last three lines, number, filename, and mission name.

If the mission is a multiplayer mission, you must repeat the above instructions for the file mission.lst as well.

Tour or CAMPAIGN (group of TRAIN format missions)

To install an entire tour, download the zip file and unzip it to your XvT or BoP folder. Then follow this set of instructions:

  • Go to the TRAIN folder. Open add.lst and copy the text from here and then add it to the end of rebel.lst or imperial.lst if it is a Rebel faction or Imperial faction tour respectively. If it is a multiplayer capable tour then add the text to mission.lst as well. Make sure that none of the individual mission numbers are being used by any other missions (regardless of being rebel or imperial).
  • IF BoP CAMPAIGN ONLY: Go to the CAMPAIGN folder. Open add.lst and copy the text from this file and then add it to the rebel.lst or imperial.lst file if it is a Rebel faction or Imperial faction campaign, respectively. If it is a multiplayer capable campaign, add the text to mission.lst as well. Make sure that the campaign number does not match up with any other campaign listed (regardless of being rebel or imperial). If you need to change the campaign number, return to the *.lst files found in the TRAIN folder and adjust the campaign number which can be found in bold, underlined font in the following example:
//
[Campaign Name]
//
100
* 5 0 filename.tie
Mission 1
101
* 5 0 filename2.tie
Mission 2





COMBAT Format

Individual COMBAT format missions are added in a very similar manner to TRAIN format missions. To install a COMBAT format mission, you will need to add text to al three of the following files: rebel.lst, imperial.lst, and mission.lst. The text to be added follows the following format:

//
[Mission Grouping Title]
//
100
Mission_filename.tie
Mission Name

The first three lines will create a separate section at the end of the list for the new missions. The title will show up as the text which is put between the [ and ] symbols. The fourth line is a number which is to be unique to that individual mission. It will keep the mission records for that mission separate from each of the other missions in the game. The fifth line is where you put in the filename (including the extension) that goes with this mission entry. The final line will be displayed as the mission name which can be selected from the in-game list. To add more missions, continue adding missions using the format from the last three lines, number, filename, and mission name.

BATTLE (group of COMBAT format missions)

To install a BATTLE of COMBAT missions, follow the following instructions:

  • Download the zip file and unzip it to your XvT or BoP directory.
  • Go to the COMBAT folder. Open add.lst and add the text found there to all three of the following files: rebel.lst, imperial.lst, and mission.lst. Make sure that none of the mission numbers are being used by any other COMBAT mission.
  • Go to the BATTLE folder. Open up add.lst and add the text found there to the file mission.lst. Make sure that the battle number does not match up with any other installed battles.


MELEE Format

Melees are to be installed just like TRAIN and COMBAT missions. Add the *.tie file to the MELEE folder in your XvT or BoP directory and add the following text to the mission.lst file.

//
[Mission Grouping Title]
//
100
Mission_filename.tie
Mission Name

TOURNAMENT (group of MELEE format missions)

  • Download the zip file and unzip it to your XvT or BoP directory.
