    VIII. **Conclusion**
         I had read reviews, drooled over screenshots and waited patiently for the
    day to come. The day I would receive Rogue Leader. I was not disappointed. This
    game is very impressive, impressive enough to inspire me to write a FAQ. I
    normally wouldn't even think about doing something like this. Most other
    aspects of the game already being covered by FAQs, this was practically the
    only area I could cover without writing the same things as others. What's the
    point of this FAQ? Well, first of all, I think it would help people to know
    stats for any medal for any level. There could be many reasons for this. One
    being that after you attain a medal, you no longer can check the stats for it
    on your game. Another being that strategy guides aren't always accurate. It's
    also very hard to find a website that has them for you. No matter the reason,
    I'm writing this as a quick reference guide for anyone who needs the info. I'll
    also provide strategies for "trouble stats", and quick tips that'll help out
    with a particular level. I assume that you already know the terms I will use
    throughout this FAQ.
         This FAQ is, in no way, a walkthrough of the game. If you want one, check
    out CyricZ's wonderful FAQ. If you need complete gold medal strategies, you're
    also out of luck. Instead, look up Weggy's FAQ. While you can't find full Gold
    strategies here, the tips I will give you can help you to develop your own.
    This is my first time ever writing a FAQ, so I hope it turns out okay. There is
    one more thing you should be filled in on, for people who have been asking. A
    "Darth Bob", Bob for short, is the TIE pilot who always seems to crash into you
    while flying the missions(It's a nickname people gave him). I might use the
    name once or twice, so I'm just filling you in, in case you didn't know.

         Here's the deal. This file is copyrighted to me, Kyle Brown, 2002. You may
    not copy, in part or in whole, my FAQ without without prior permission from me.
    I worked hard creating this, and deserve a say in whether or not you reproduce
    it in any way, shape or form. If you want to use this on your website, you must
    ask me first; otherwise it is only for private, personal use. If you have any
    questions relating to this, look in the **Contact Me** section of the FAQ.
         As you might know, this is the section where I keep track of all updates
    to the FAQ, beginning with the date on which I begun writing it. This section
    will probably grow bigger over time as I add and/or change more things.
             7/28/02  I changed a couple things, as well as changed/added info,
    	 wording, etc. in the lower half of the FAQ to make it more to my
    	 liking. FAQ changed to v1.2.
    	 6/26/02  I updated my FAQ to v1.1, changing some info on the "Strike
    	 at the Core" mission, adding extra info onto the introduction, and
    	 correcting a few grammatical errors.
    	 6/17/02  I finished writing v1.0 of this FAQ
    	 6/15/02  The day I started writing the FAQ again, after putting it off
             since mid-February. My procrastination proceeds me.
    	 1/26/02  I begun writing v1.0 of this FAQ.

         These are the ten main missions that do not require medal points to
    purchase. Don't know what I'm talking about? Ok, here's the lowdown: Each medal
    you receive gives you points that can be used to unlock the five bonus
    missions. You receive 3 points for a Bronze medal, 6 for silver, and 10 for
    gold. No, they do not overlap. That means that if you get a bronze on a level,
    and subsequently receive a Gold on your next try, you won't get the 3 for
    bronze and another 10 for the Gold. The Gold, would however, add the 7 extra
    points to make it 10. This means that you cannot gain more than a total of 10
    points on 1 mission. Got it? Good. On to the missions.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>TATOOINE TRAINING<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
         This is not really a mission, but more of a playable training course. You
    cannot receive a medal of any kind here, but there is a reward. If you complete
    it at all four times periods of the day, you receive the Naboo Starfighter(N1).
    You, however, must completely and fully achieve all of the stats for this
    course for each of those time periods. On with the stats.
    ---->1. Training stats(for all four time slots)
                             Discovery Items Found: 12
    			 Lessons Learned: 12
    			 Beggar's Canyon Racing
    			 Track 1: 0:50
    			 Track 2: 0:40
    			 Tosche Station Racing
    			 Easy: 1:00
    			 Hard: 0:57
    			 Womp Rat Valley
    			 Easy: 20
    			 Medium: 40
    			 Hard: 60
    			 Bonus Items Found: 2
    ---->2. Trouble stats
                            Really the only stats people have trouble with on this
    			level are the Womp Rat Valley's hard and the Beggar's
    			Canyon Race Track 1. There is really nothing to say for
    			the Beggar's Canyon race except for to practice
    			navigating it first(it's the left track)before you
    			trigger the race. For the Womp Rat Hard(60), just use
    			the "Round 'em up" trick. All that means is that you
    			need to fly around the outside of the herd a couple of
    			times to send them scampering to the middle, then fly
    			through the Rebel insignia and continue as if you
    			normally would.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
    			- If you suck at killing Womp Rats, you might want to
    			put that at the top of your to-do list. If you fail,
    			then you should restart training and do it again.
    			Repeat until you've killed all 60 on your first try.
    			- Having a hard time finding all of the discovery
    			items? Just follow the orange cone on your radar to
    			reach your destination.
    			- Jabba's palace isn't there just for decoration,
    			y'know. Blast it a few times during to right time zones
    			for the C-3P0 bonus.
    			- TIE Fighter, TIE Fighter, Wherefore art thou TIE
    			Fighter? Hidden halfway in the sand in the bustling
    			metropolis of Mos Eisley.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>DEATH STAR ATTACK<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
         The first real mission. This, of course, is also the first mission in
    which you can earn medals on. This level is said to have one of the harder of
    the gold medals to achieve in the game.
    ---->1. Medal Stats
                                           Bronze    Silver    Gold
            Completion Time-----------------9:30      7:11      6:05
    	Enemies Destroyed---------------21	  52 	    91
    	Shot Accuracy-------------------11%       19%       39%
    	Friendlies Lost-----------------1	  0	    0
    	Lives Lost----------------------2         1         0
    	Targeting Computer Efficiency---10%       40%	    100%
    	**TCE for future reference**
    ---->2. Trouble Stats
                            For this level, or for any level, Bronze and Silver
    		        shouldn't be a problem. So these "Trouble Stats"
    			sections will be strictly for Gold medal runs.  The
    			main stats people generally have trouble with for this
    			mission is Time, Enemies, and Accuracy. Make sure you
    			balance out your kills in different sections of the
    			mission. It helps if you get most of your kills in the
    			Trench. That'll save time AND help you get all the
    			needed kills. For Accuracy, just make sure your lasers
    			hit their mark. Using linked laser will help you
    			significantly on the TIE section.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - Don't get too turret greedy during the first two
    			phases, or you can kiss your Gold medal goodbye.
    			Try to get most of your kills in the trench.
    			- Shooting Vader helps to boost your accuracy if you're
    			a good shot, but if you're going for a Gold medal, you
    			probably won't have time anyway.
    			- 1 turret a wave keeps the doctor away. What I mean
    			is, during the TIE section, don't shoot too many
    			turrets or you'll squander your Time stat. It's
    			sensible to blast only about 1 per wave(or flock, or
    			formation, or whatever)of TIEs.
    			- Unless you need a boost in accuracy, don't brake for
    			Vader. He's only one guy, and his shots are easily
    			avoided by arcing up and down. Don't worry, good ol'
    			Han will rid you of him soon enough.
    			- Don't even touch your TCE, or your Gold medal stats
    			are screwed.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>ISON CORRIDOR AMBUSH<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
         This is the second medal mission, and what an easy mission this is. If
    you're new to this game, though, you'll have to get used to keeping yourself
    oriented in a space environment. This mission also introduces craft switching,
    which you will use numerous times throughout the course of the game. If you're
    good at dogfighting, then this Gold medal will be easy enough with almost any
    ship. However, if you want to achieve the Gold with incredibly pathetic ease,
    try out the Slave 1. It's cluster missiles(with the upgrades)will make your job
    much, much easier.
    ---->1. Medal Stats
                                           Bronze    Silver    Gold
            Completion Time-----------------7:18      5:16      4:11
    	Enemies Destroyed---------------26        32        40
    	Shot Accuracy-------------------3%        7%        19%
    	Friendlies Lost-----------------4         3         2
    	Lives Lost----------------------2         1         0
    	TCE-----------------------------10%       27%       72%
    ---->2. Trouble Stats
                            Trouble stats? Well, for using any other ship besides
    			the Slave 1, those would be Time, Accuracy, and TCE.
    			For Accuracy, use linked lasers on the TIEs and make
    			sure you have a clean shot beforehand. For TCE, turn it
    			on in quick bursts to find your enemies, and then fly
    			to their position. The radar helps in this area, too,
    			so you should learn how to read it effectively. For
    			time, not much to say except to be quick about
    			everything you do. Well, at least that's the more
    			difficult way to do things.
    			If you can wait until you have at least a Silver medal
    			of all of the main missions and the first two bonus
    			Falcon missions, you'll have the Slave 1 to be able to
    			use on this, and several other missions. While it's
    			relatively weak in all other areas, it's up-side is
    			that it has the best secondary weapon in the game: the
    			Cluster Missiles. If you have the upgrades, all you
    			have to do is fly to a somewhat close distance from
    			whatever you want to shoot, and let loose. They
    			automatically track down and kill any enemies within
    			their range. They also track down friendlies, but it's
    			not something you need to worry about. Each missile can
    			kill up to six enemies, and you have 20 at your
    ---->3. Quick Tips
    			- If you can wait, definitely use Slave 1 for this
    			Gold. You won't regret it.
    			- Don't be afraid to use your TCE, especially in the
    			nebula; you'll probably need it.
                            - Attack the TIE's that are yellow on your TCE first,
    			they're the ones that will momentarily be attacking
    			your friendlies. They're yellow for a reason.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>BATTLE OF HOTH<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
         Welcome to the most perfectly crafted and recreated Battle of Hoth of any
    SW game yet made. This Gold medal can be a toughie if you don't know what
    you're doing. Get ready to wrangle some AT-AT's quickly, because you'll need to
    if you want the Gold.
    ---->1. Medal Stats
                                           Bronze    Silver    Gold
            Completion Time-----------------9:55      7:09      5:00

    	TCE-----------------------------15%       55%       100%
    ---->2. Trouble Stats
                            Well, the trouble stats for this level include Time,
    			Enemies and Accuracy. For time, it's crucial to be able
    			to wrap up the AT-AT's quickly. The quicker, the
    			better. Oh, and be quick with the rest, too. Enemies?
    			Well, just shoot the probe droids, in addition to all
    			of your other targets. They're easy targets, so you
    			should be able to blast most of them. Accuracy is
    			simple. Shoot the AT-AT's when you get the chance, and
    			your accuracy will be boosted on up there.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - Don't forget to shoot the probe droids. They're easy,
    			fast, and boost your Enemies Destroyed stat
    			significantly. You can find plenty of them in the
    			canyons between the fighting and the transports.
    			- Don't shoot the Snowtroopers, they won't boost your
    			Enemies stat at all, and won't help your accuracy much,
                            - For this and any level, cutscenes count as mission
    			time. This level has the longest cutscenes in the game,
    			so you definitely need to skip them.
    			- This isn't Playhouse Disney, you know. You don't have
    			time to waste just gawking at your T.V. Pay attention
    			and be as quick as possible.
                            - If you have Advanced Homing Proton Torps, use all of
    			them on the bombers. Trust me, they help a lot.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>PRISONS OF THE MAW<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
         This is, I consider, to be one of the odd levels. This level has no real
    background story and no real purpose to the storyline, it seems. But who cares?
    This mission's Gold is pretty easy to get. Memorize the level, and I think
    it'll be quickly achieved. The only problem with this level is its longevity...
    ......oh, well.

    ---->2. Trouble Stats
                            This time they are Enemies and Accuracy. All you have
    			to do is to remember one thing: You have plenty of time
    			to work with, so you do have time to follow the
    			railway, instead of the cone. Why follow the railway?
    			AT-PT's are the answer. They travel in packs of three,
    			so if you can drop a bomb in the middle of a pack, it
    			will destroy all three, boosting both your Enemies AND
    			Accuracy stats quite significantly, plus you'll still
    			reach your destination with time to spare. Do that, and
    			don't be TOO slow, and you've probably got yourself a
    			Gold medal.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - Don't worry about wasting time by following the
    			railway, it'll help you more than it'll hurt you.
    			- Trying to get a gold with no destroyed AT-PT's is
    			like trying to run a race when your twice as slow as
    			the other guy.
    			- Tell your wingmen to flee as soon as you're through
    			the asteroid field; they won't help you much, and it'll
    			help save your Friendlies Lost stat.
    			- Don't worry too much about the TIEs attacking the
    			Loader the prisoners are on at the end. It'll hold up,
    			and you don't want to screw up your accuracy, now do
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>RAZOR RENDEZVOUS<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
         The fifth mission, this is also either the shortest, or second shortest,
    depending on how you slice it. This is the hardest mission I've covered so far,
    but it can be completed in under 30 seconds if you're good. Spending a lot of
    time protecting the medical frigate? Ha, the REDEMPTION is the least of your
    troubles. One of the easiest Golds, it shouldn't take you too much time to

                            This time, they are not really tough individually
    			(except MAYBE Accuracy), it's just trying to get Time
    			and Enemies down on the same run. Even when they say
    			to, don't protect the REDEMPTION at all. Focus on the
    			ISD. Shoot the Big Lasers(the lasers whose blasts are
    			white). They're big targets(which'll help with
    			Accuracy)and will suffice for your Enemies Destroyed
    			stat. Take out the generators as fast as possible, and
    			that'll do for time.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - Practice makes perfect! Don't forget to get used to
    			just beating the mission before you aim for Gold.
    			- "We've got to protect the Medical Frigate,".......
    			....bah, who cares? Just take out the ISD. The
    			REDEMPTION can hold its own just fine for a while.
    			- Remember that on this level, you have to take out
    			both of the top generators before the bottom one. You
    			can take them out in any order you wish on Battle of
    			Endor, but for some odd reason Factor 5 decided not to
    			let you be able to do that here.
    			- Run into the deck with your ship. Its much quicker,
    			and it won't count as a life lost(the mission ends the
    			exact instant the comand deck is destroyed).

         The second part to RR, the ISD has crashed on Kothlis, and you must defend
    your troops while they penetrate to crashed ISD to retrieve the data from the
    RAZOR. Why do they always have to rely on you? Well this is one of the most
    enjoyable levels in the game, with such longevity and varied objectives. Gold
    might be problem, but keep at it and you'll eventually reach your goal.

                            The stats that quirk people for this mission would be
    			Time and Enemies. The level, for the most part, goes by
    			its own pace, so doing everything quickly won't really
    			help too much. I can't help you there. With enemies,
    			just destroy as many as you can. If you have an
    			opportunity to kill a couple of TIEs, do so......even
    			if you do have to destroy more advancing AT-PT's. Any
    			extra enemy kills you can get without risking your

    			advantage of.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - Your commandos are your highest priority. Protect
    			them like you would yourself.
    			- Take out the AT-AT's closest to the beach first; this
    			gives the further out ones time to reach more shallow
    			water, making them easier to wrangle.
    			- Same rules apply here concerning AT-PT's; drop bombs
    			in the middle of the groups, improving your accuracy
    			- Riddle me this, Riddle me that. It is no riddle that
    			you should take out TIEs with any extra time you have,
                            especially after all of the AT-PT's have gone bye-bye.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>IMPERIAL ACADEMY HEIST<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
         This level can be cool, but the first sensor part is annoying, pointless
    and boring. Stealing the TIE fighter is fun, and so is the level(after the
    sensor part)in general. Gold medal? It's a synch. Just listen to those low I.Q.

    	                The only stats you need to worry about here are Time,
    			Accuracy and Lives. Some people say it's easier during
    			the nighttime, I say shoot for Gold during the day.
    			Just remember to bomb the platforms, and while at the
    			academy you have all those nicely-lined-up-just-for-you
    			rows of TIEs to gun down. Ionize the sensors as quickly
    			as possible, try to get most of the TIEs with bombs
    			while they're still on the platforms, and blast about 4
    			rows of TIEs when you're at the Academy. Make sure your
    			weapons hit their mark, and be sure to destroy the
    			turrets surrounding the shuttle's launch pad.
    			While in the LAMBDA Class Shuttle, even if TIEs are
    			swarming behind you, try to refrain from shooting your
    			rear-facing laser. You can tightly turn around the
    			canyon walls, however, causing them to crash(you'll be

    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - Shoot as many turret platforms as you can; they are a
    			big threat to you being able to get out of there
    			-  Don't shoot the flying TIEs or your Time and
    			Accuracy will be seriously screwed.
    			- Do you know the Muffin Man? Probably not. But what
    			you should know is that while bombs are effective for
    			killing multiple targets on the TIE platforms, they'll
    			only be able to destroy one TIE at a time in the neat
    			little rows at the academy; and even then you need a
    			direct hit. You must use your lasers.

    to stay focused. Well, actually, this level's Gold is fairly easy.

                            This time, those stats appear to be only Lives and TCE,
    			and even both of those are pretty easy to get. For
    			lives, use a ship with stronger shields, but with still
    			decent maneuverability, such as the X-Wing. Just keep
    			moving and dodging their shots, and if your shields get
    			too low, switch to a cloud car. Use your torpedoes on
    			the Interceptors; or the Bombers if you haven't
    			switched ships. The main problem people have with TCE
    			is that the generators are down in the trenches, and
    			can be hard to find without your TCE. Your radar can
    			help remedy this. Follow your radar, and when the cone
    			widens out, use your TCE in quick bursts to find them
    			below you.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                       - Having the generator blues? Taking too long and too much
    		   TCE to find them? Follow your nose........err, I mean your
    		   - Those Interceptors are quick, maneuverable, and can be a
    		   real pain. Luckily, I've never encountered a Bob here, so
    		   you shouldn't worry about that. If you need to kill TIEs in
    		   a hurry, your torpedoes can get it done in a jiffy.
    		   - Want to kick some major Imperial butt? Destroying one
    		   balloon via the burners counts for 6 kills..............all
    		   at the same time!

         Ahhhh.....the magnificent Battle of Endor you've watched so many times on

    level. At least for the most part. While there are a small few things missing,
    and Lando & Ackbar's voice actors have left something to be desired, it will
    still bring back all of that Star Wars nostalgia. Watch out, though; this Gold
    can be one Hell of a pain.

                            It seems as if, this time, they are Lives, Accuracy,
    			Enemies, Friendlies, and for a few; Time. A lot of
    			people claim that this is the hardest mission to earn a
    			Gold on, including me. Let's get started. Time isn't
    			really a problem for most people, but for some it is.
    			The same rules apply here, do things as quickly as
    			possible, but not so quickly as to endanger the other
    			stats. Take out the bombers very quickly, though. When
    			they come, they should be your only priority. For
    			Enemies, if you have to, you can count every kill you
    			get. If you get 37-40 before the bombers arrive, then
    			you're pretty much set for Enemies, and shouldn't worry
    			about it further.
    			For accuracy, I can't really help you. Just be, well,
    			accurate. I don't really think accuracy is a trouble
    			stat, but for some reason, a couple of people I know
    			had a hard time on accuracy for this Gold. Lives is one
    			of your main problems here. Basically, save your torps
    			(I assume you are using the N1 or the X-Wing)for the
    			command decks, take out the two generators on top from
    			behind, be careful whatever you do, and swerve around a
    			bit so the lasers hit you less. Oh, and make sure you
    			don't die in the first part. If you die AT ALL before
    			going up against the ISD's, I recommend that you
    			restart. It's not too easy taking out both ISD's
    			without losing a life.
    			Friendlies tend to tie(no, not TIE)in with the rest of
    			the stats. If you get all other stats green for Gold,
    			then this one probably will be, especially if you have
    			a big Enemies Destroyed stat. But you can't protect all
    			the Transports and Blockade Runners all at once, and
    			there is no real trick to keeping enough alive except
    			for killing a lot of enemies, so I can't help you
    			there, either.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
    		        - This mission is long, tough, and uhhhh.........long.
    			Well, however long it is, don't hesitate to restart if
    			you know that you've squandered one or more of your
    			stats. It'll actually save time more than it'll waste
    			- Don't be afraid of making more than one pass on a
    			command deck or generator. Just don't make numerous
    			passes on each. The Home One won't last forever, but
    			don't worry about using extra time TOO much.
    			- "Oh give me a home, where the TIE Bombers Roam....."
    			Well, that may have been a little weird, but you should
    			make your "home" where the TIE Bombers are. What I mean
    			is, when the Bombers come, go for them right away, and
    			quickly. You'll want to defeat them as soon as
    			possible. It'll help you on Time, Enemies, and Lives
    			(yes, even lives).
    			- This mission's Gold isn't as easy as buttered toast,
    			but keep at it. Of, course, that goes for practically
    			any level, but lots of people found this to be the
    			hardest mission for it.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>STRIKE AT THE CORE<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
         Well, you've made it this far, but can you master the final(main)mission?
    Well, actually this Gold is pretty easy, it's just the level that's hard. They
    will only let you squander 1 life and still get the Gold, so you should
    probably practice before attempting a Gold run. This level will have you asking
    yourself who your allies are, because Lando tends to knock you into the wall
    in a greedy attempt to save himself! Get the Gold, and show him who the real
    Rogue Leader is!

    ---->2. Trouble Stats
    	                The only stats that I could see anyone having a problem
    			with, here, are lives, and MAYBE accuracy. Of course,
    			the same tactics used in other levels for accuracy are
    			also the ones you'd use here. the big problem with this
    			level is lives. Some people have trouble just beating
    			the level, much less attain a Gold. Unfortunately,
    			there isn't too much advice I can pass onto you to help
    			you with the life problem. I can give you a little,
    			however. During the first part, stay high above the
    			action, swooping down to blast any TIEs that are behind
    			the falcon. As soon as they have been eradicated, swoop
    			back up high above everything, and wait for more TIEs
    			to come. There is also something else you need to do
                            during the first section which is important. The TIEs
                            alone will not provide you with enough kills for that
    			shiny golden medal you want to get. Destroy at least
                            four Turbolaser turrets before you get actually inside
                            the DS2.
                            For the second part, get out of the way of any TIEs
    			that come up behind you(you can hear their distinctive
    			noise when they're nearing you). Let them pass, then
    			blast them as soon as possible. Of course, you have to
    			be careful not to collide or scrape against anything
    			while doing all of this. Preform these tasks, while
    			taking care not to mess up that perdy little ship of
    			yours(in other words: don't crash), and you should be
    			able to get the Gold without too much trouble :)
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - If you lose a life in the first part, definitely
    			restart. You'll still have a "slight" chance of getting
    			the Gold, but this mission isn't terribly long, and
    			well, "Better safe than sorry," as the saying goes.
                            - You have no enemies to worry about after getting to
    			and destroying the generator. Just speed up on the
    			straightaways and don't worry about the Falcon.
    			- Watch out! Lando likes to hog up the tunnleways. On
    			the very last section, speed up and pass the Falcon as
    			soon as you can. Don't worry; Lando will be safe from
    			the flames.
    			- During the first two parts, protect the Falcon as
    			best as you can. Lando sure may not be worth the
    			effort, but the Falcon and Nien Numb are!

         Well, you're finally here; the bonus missions. These are the missions
    which require the use of your hard-earned points to purchase. Which ones should
    you get first? Well, if you want to make one(and maybe even two)of your gold
    medals easier, go for the first two missions first(the Millennium Falcon
    missions). If you get at least a silver on those two, and plus the original
    ten, you receive the weak, but useful sometimes, Slave 1. If you don't like the
    S1, just don't care, or would like to see things from the Empire's point of
    view, then you might want to buy both of the vader missions first. Whatever you
    do, save ENDURANCE for last. Trust me; you don't want to waste your points on
    it until you have all of the other levels beforehand.
    >>>>>>BONUS>>>>>>>>BONUS>>>>>>>DEATH STAR ESCAPE<<<<<<<BONUS<<<<<<<<BONUS<<<<<<
         Well, now...this is the first of the five bonus missions you can buy in
    the game. If you're going for Slave 1, this level and the other Falcon level,
    "THE ASTEROID FIELD", are the two bonus missions you should open first. This
    Gold can be extremely tough; even if you know what you're doing. The key to
    getting it is to memorize the patterns of the TIEs. You could spend a while on
    this level. Remember how earlier I said that I think PotM is one of the odd
    levels? Well this one is the second one, and it definitely breaks even with it.
    This mission is actually straight from A NEW HOPE, but the reason it's odd is
    because you don't pilot a ship in this mission, you just take control of one of
    the Falcon's gun turrets. While that eliminates worry of TCE, Lives and
    Friendlies, that doesn't in turn cause the Gold to be any easier.

    ---->2. Trouble Stats
                            The only two stats you should worry your little head
    			over here are Time and Accuracy. Accuracy is the only
    			really tough one individually, it's just getting both
                            down together, on one Gold Medal run. You might spend a
    			lot of time on this one. There is only one trick to
    			being able to do this; the TIEs fly in at the same
    			speed, in the same way and in the same fashion every
    			single time. It may take quite a few plays, but
    			memorizing the TIE patterns is essential to winning
    			that shiny golden masterpiece that you can show off to
    			your friends. Once you have the pattern down, or at
    			least for the most part, you should start your Gold
    			medal runs, only working on one stat at a time. This
                            technique applies to all of the missions. Try to
    			improve all of your stats for a level individually
    			instead of all-out going for a Gold Medal and achieving
                            all of the stats at once. After mastering them all
    			individually, then try to put them all into one run. I
                            know you've been told that before, but I can't
    			emphasize it enough.
                            So, work on completing accuracy first. Why accuracy?
    			Well, for this mission, Accuracy and Time go hand in
    			hand. The more accurate you are, the faster your TIE
                            destroying is going to be, thus improving your time.
    			Chances are that if you get at least the 16% accuracy
    			you need for this gold, then your time will also be low
    			enough. This works for other levels somewhat, too; but
                            this is the one that it most affects in that manner.
                            So, get to work on accuracy, without worrying about
    			time too much, and the gold will almost certainly be
    			much, much easier.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - MEMORIZE THE TIE PATTERNS. It is the most important

    			damn-near impossible to get. Trust me on this.
                            - Accuracy is your second priority. Achieve it, and
                            Time is 95% likely to also be yours in the same run.
                            - Practice; that applies for any level, but this level
    			will probably take the most tries of any. Good thing
    			it's so short.
    >>>>>BONUS>>>>>>>BONUS>>>>>>>>THE ASTEROID FIELD<<<<<<<BONUS<<<<<<<BONUS<<<<<<<
         The second bonus mission of the 5, this is the second MILLENIUM FALCON
    mission, and, in conjunction with the first, will help you unlock the mostly
    bad, but also helpful(every once in a while)SLAVE 1. This level is supposed to
    be straight off of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, but it's somehow....different.
    Especially the FALCON, which is much less maneuverable than it's movie
    counterpart. It leaves much to be desired; it's not that fun, it's quite
    different from the movie, and the Gold Medal here is much too easy. Most people
    think that this is the easiest gold in th entire game. Many have gotten it on
    their first try. So, you shouldn't have to worry about this mission giving you
    tons of trouble.

    ---->2. Trouble Stats
                            There are really only two trouble stats that need to be
    			covered here, and neither of them should give you too
                            much of a problem. They are Time, and Lives. For Time,
                            all you have to do is follow the orange cone straight,
                            at full speed. What about the asteroids? Factor 5 made
                            the asteroids completely unlike those in ESB. You have
                            to do practically no dodging, and even ten, it's only a
                            slight course adjustment. After making the small
    			change, immediately get back on course with the orange
                            cone. Do that, and Time is covered. Lives is really the
                            only real problem you'll face on this mission, though.
                            For that, pull the camera back using the C-Stick(if the
                            enemy camera is turned off)right away. Press the A
    			button whenever TIEs are behind you. The rear-facing
    			laser on the FALCON aims itself automatically, so it
                            will undeniably help you on this mission. Don't worry
                            about accuracy; 10% leaves plenty of room for misses.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - Speed up, and go straight, only hindering from the
                            orange cone's path on your radar only to avoid
    			asteroids; then get back on course quickly.
                            - Don't be afraid to use your rear-facing laser cannon,
                            as it is essential in getting TIEs off your back. Your
                            accuracy will be fine.
                            - Swerving away from, and then around asteroids can
                            sometimes shake off TIEs by making them crash into it
                            behind you. However, it is dangerous and not
    >>>>>>>BONUS>>>>>>BONUS>>>>>>TRIUMPH OF THE EMPIRE<<<<<<BONUS<<<<<<BONUS<<<<<<<
         Welcome to the alternate universe stages in Rogue Leader. If you've ever
    to see the Rebels lose at the Battle of Yavin, wanted revenge for them blowing
    up the Death Star, wanted to blast hundreds of Imperial ships, with wave after
    wave of them coming to kill you(very doubtful), or just wanted to see things
    from the Empire's point of view; then these last three missions are for you.
    This, being the first one, and the third bonus mission, is what would happen
    if the Rebels lost at the Battle of Yavin. You take control of Darth Vader, and
    try to keep the Rebel fighters from blowing up the first Death Star. Pretty
    cool, in my opinion. This Gold can be hard.

    ---->2. Trouble Stats
                            Lives and Friendlies, and sometimes Time are the
    			problems this time around. Make sure that you use the
    			TIE Advance(X1)for this mission, and make sure you have
    			all the upgrades. You'll need them all at this stage of
    			the game, especially for this level. There are two
    			phases in this mission. During the first, don't shoot
    			the Rebel craft with your lasers at all, for the sake
                            of Accuracy. X1's lasers are EXTREMELY inaccurate.
    			Shoot your homing Cluster Missiles at all of the ships.
                            Don't waste them, though.
                            If any Rebels get behind you and start blasting, shake
    			them off, it shouldn't be too difficult in the X1.
    			Shoot any rebels that aren't in the trench with your
    			homing Cluster Missiles. In the trench, use the
    			missiles on one wave of the Rebels(there are three
    			waves, and each wave has three ships), preferably one
    			with Y-Wings, as they're more shielded. After defeating
    			a wave, follow your cone and fly to the next one,
    			shooting clusters at the Rebel ships you see. Again,
    			shake off any rebels that start shooting at you.
    			Defeating the enemies in the trench is the key to
    			saving your friendlies, so take them out quickly. Do
    			all of what I mentioned, and the Gold Medal will be
    			much, much easier.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - Try to conserve Cluster Missiles. If you use more
    			than ten during the first phase, then you should
    			restart, as you probably won't have enough to take out
    			enough enemies for your Enemies Stat.
                            - Shaking off Rebels that are shooting at you is
    			important. The X1 has moderate shields, but those
    			Rebels are quite aggressive.
                            - Take out trench Rebels quickly, or they'll shoot down
                            turrets, causing you to get a bad Friendlies stat.
    >>>>>>>>>BONUS>>>>>>>BONUS>>>>>>>REVENGE ON YAVIN<<<<<<BONUS<<<<<<BONUS<<<<<<<<
         The Death Star has been destroyed by the Rebel fleet, and His Royal
    Highness, the Emperor, wants you to exact revenge personally on them before
    they can evacuate their base on Yavin IV. This mission is cool, fun, and the
    Gold is pretty easy.

                            I don't know about you, but the only trouble stats that
                            I can really see are Lives, Enemies and maybe Time.
    			The Gold Medal for this mission is actually pretty
    			easy, so there's no need for excess worry. Basically,
    			you want to shake off any Rebels that are behind you,
                            just as you did in TRIUMPH OF THE EMPIRE. Don't spend
                            too much time doing this, however, because Time is just
                            a little bit short. Maneuver around, so you get hit
    			less, and save your Clusters for Rebel ships; use your
                            lasers for the Transports. Don't worry about accuracy,
                            the Transports are huge targets. Now, use Clusters for
                            any Rebel ships in the air, but there are patches on
    			the ground inbetween the Transport clearings that have
                            Rebel craft on the ground; ready to be taken into the
                            air. Blast them with Clusters, or even with lasers, as
                            they won't be moving. That'll help your Enemies stat
                            very significantly.
                            Be quick about all of this, and the Gold should be
    			pretty easy. Remember; it may seem like a hassle, but
                            aborting and restarting the mission does wonders if you
                            know you're not going to achieve all the stats you
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - Be quick; stay on your toes; use Clusters; do a
    			little jig?! Ok, forget that last one. The other tips
                            are words to live by, however.
                            - Find the small clearings with the Rebel craft, and
    			blast them to Kingdom Come! Your Enemies Destroyed stat
                            will thank you for it....
                            - Be careful while inside the Temple; slow down so you
                            don't accidentally slam into a pillar or a Transport.
                            There are also Rebel ships on the ground in here, also;
                            so remember that.
                            - These tips are getting a little tedious, aren't they?
         Here we are. You've made it this far, to the final mission, but can you
    handle it? You'll soon find out, won't you? This mission isn't really hard;
    it's  just long. Very, very long. An average person will probably clock in at
    over three hours by the end of the mission. If you can bare the extreme boredom
    that follows wave 40, then the Gold Medal is yours; well, 99% likely, at least.
    Very, VERY few people that have played through ENDURANCE have not gotten a Gold
    Medal on their first try. Factor 5 made it that easy on purpose, of course, so
    as to not anger people with it when they worked for three hours, just to find
    out they missed on two-three stats. Pack a lunch; ready, set....GO!

                            There is really nothing to say, here, as there are no
                            real trouble stats. As long as you complete the
    			mission, then Gold is 99% likely going to be yours.
    			There are 100 waves in all. Each wave has around 15-23
                            TIEs, fighters and Interceptors. Every tenth wave is
    			not TIEs, but Lambda Class Imperial Shuttles. Blasting
                            them all will get you an extra life, and then 9 more
    			waves of TIEs come again, until the tenth wave, with
                            more shuttles and another shot at an extra life. This
    			cycle continues on for what seems like forever. It's
    			very boring, indeed. The TIEs progressively get harder,
    			until, finally, they max out at Wave 59. If you do make
    			it past wave 99, the final one is not Lambda Shuttles,
                            but a duel with Darth Vader himself, in his TIE
    			Advance. Don't worry, he's bantha fodder; he'll be very
                            easy to take down if you're sure to avoid his shots.
                            Watch out for Bobs throughout(the Imperial pilots who
    			always seem to slam into you with their ships), and be
                            sure to use the Chicken technique. Fighting the TIEs
                            in a normal fashion is suicide. Instead, fly out far,
                            until the TIEs are at the edge of your radar, turn
    			around, then face them head on, destroying any from
                            2-8, the fly straight out the other way after flying
    			through the mob, and do it again. Time consuming, yes;
                            but it's really the only way to win. I recommend using
                            the X-Wing or the Naboo Starfighter for this mission.
    ---->3. Quick Tips
                            - If using a ship with torps, save 2-4 for Vader, just
                            so you can take him out quickly. This level's a long
    			one, all right. He's way too easy, so dogfighting him
                            probably won't be any fun at all. Of course, go right
                            ahead and battle him if you want; I'm not going to try
                            and stop you.
                            - I definitely recommend the N1 or the X-Wing. They
    			have 6 torps each, and have an astromech droid, which
                            will help repair your life when you're flying out to
                            turn around and make an attack run.
                            - Use the chicken technique explained above. Anything
    			else is virtually suicide. Even the pros of this game
    			use it.
                            - Put on some music to entertain, and take breaks; this
                            mission is LONG and BORING!
