There seems to be a joystick quirk where it wants to roll on me when I maneuver. My joystick settings work fine in XWAU (up is up, down is down, etc., roll is push a button and turn left or right). Is this built into the game? Do I need to modify my joystick settings in some way?
For one thing, most craft have roll and yaw combined in their "yaw" axis - a feature of the original Tie Fighter and XWA. Is that the behaviour you're talking about?
The experience I'm having is that a full yaw turn results in a pure roll. This is different from the yaw turns in XWA and XvT (and original TIE Fighter as I remember it), where there will be a slight roll component to the yaw, but you can still execute a lateral turn. I'll keep playing with the joystick options to see if I can fix it that way.

Also, is it possible to set craft waves so that if you die once the mission is over? Realism is painful, but I like it that way. :)

You should edit the player Flight Group for this, making it a solo, in a global unit to build the full squadron. Totally possible.

Would I do that within the game or in the code?

You simply edit the mission file wirh AlliED ot Yogeme mission editor. It is a simple but tedious and ripetitive work to do each mission

Yes they will. You might want to make a backup copy of your pilotname.plt files first.

What @Bman said is not quite true. When you swap versions (XWAU, TFTC Classic or Reimagined), your pilot file is not deleted or changed. In TFTC it swaps to a default pilot file so you will need to reload any pilot you may have created. Otherwise if you use a pilot file from TFTC for example on XWAU, you will find you have already unlocked the entire XWA campaign. All the pilot file really does is track what missions you've played and your stats so it carries over to any version of the game you're playing if you load that file.

However we do recommend you backup your pilot files anyway, on the off chance something does happen to them.

Well, unless I cleared my pilot accidently, using an XWA pilot in TFTC resulted in him forgetting his XWA campaing it seems.

EDIT: None of my old pilots seem to have any campaign progress saved when opened in XWA. Strange.

Neverthismind ;)

Is it possible to extract the music files? I'd love to make a playlist of the Inflight tracks :D

Ok. Good to know. I thought the converter copies over the directories and deletes/replaces the pilot.plt files. We can also open the config.cfg file with notepad and edit the line that says last pilot used line near the top. But becareful because the actual .PLT file keeps stats relative to the mod you played in.
