i need help urgent was created by VERYfrustrated
ok dudes i am keeping this as short as possible cause atm i am raging, i am not talking about the mission i fail to make because i do not want tips how to do it, i read all available stuff on these and every other forum i found and it just did not help, so fuck it

here comes my question

HOW DO I SKIP A MISSION IN WING COMMANDER SAGA

ya ya i know "if you fail a mission 5 times it lets you skip the mission" thats bullcrap, it just doesnt

there is no skip mission button to be found anywhere

i failed the mission more then 5 times by flying trhough it till the end not adding to about 10 trys when i was still in the mood to try and tackle it successfully

then i started force ending the mission by shooting wing mates about 8 times now still there is no skip mission button anywhere

so if someone in this forum would be so kind and just tell me step by step what i have to do to skip this fucking goddamn bullshit piece of a crapmission so i can go on in this otherwise great game

does this 5 missionfail counter reset when i close the client ? do i have to run the whole mission 5 times in one session to a fail which takes me about 3-4 hours ????

please help me

The button should appear in the debriefing when you fail the mission. I don't think the traitor debriefing counts so that won't help you. Just dying also doesn't count IIRC but I'm not sure.
If everything else fails (even on the easiest difficulty setting??) you could extract the mission and set some friendly ships to invulnerable via the mission editor.
But that really shouldn't be necessary.

And why does that mission take so long? 3-4 hours??? Do you use autopilot at all? No mission of the campaign takes that long. So please tell us more if we are supposed to help you.

no with 3-4 hrs i meant if i have to fail the mission 5 times in one session without closing the client it would take me around 3-4 hrs, alone npc talk in this mission incl cutscenes and autopilot flight takes around 30 mins - that alone nets a non-action time of 2,5 hrs if done 5 times ^^

now the only question is can i close the game after failing and go fail another day again OR do i have to fail 5 times in one session ? does closeing the game reset that count ?

if so i would deinstall cause great game or not this would be over any line

and yes i try it on easiest difficulty and after watching youtube vid how this mission was completed

Just to be clear, it's not "if you fail the mission 5 times, the game offer you to skip the mission", it's "if you die 5 times, the game offer you to skip the mission". The easiest way to do that is to crash into the carrier until you die at the beginning of the mission.

ok good to know i did not die, gonna try this

and i do not think its a bug, the mission is save the kinney and it is absolutley impossible for me to save the cruiser from the skippers, i do this on very easy and best try was 1 skipper shot down

i am a regular gamer so i deem myself not untalented i just think u got a little overconfident in the skills of your players, i know i know now i bet 10 peeps will post how they beat this mission with closed eyes bound hands on on max difficulty but honestly i dont give a flying f***, i dont make it and i am happy someone told me how to skip this mission

come to think of it i don't think I've heard of any one who took a skip on this mission all the stories i heard involve some one beating it before it comes to that maybe the skip is bugged?

first of all x3no-life-form big thanks to you dude 8) your hint was crucial - i thought its 5 times fail to skip 8) after dying 5 times i could skip the mission and start enjoying the great game again

well i dont think it was any bug involed in this other than my lousy skills but honestly i made all other missions and on very easy the skippers where still incredibly hard to get

now i am at a mission where i have to protect the TCS Invincible and failed first try, after checking these forums i found a post saying it important to focus the pakthan but there are sooo many capship missiles too ? if i focus the bombers dont the capship missiles destroy the invincible ? i think i have to let some slip if i focus bombers

In most cases capships will destroy incoming long range missiles. The bombers are usually the bigger problem. But it depends on the mission. I can't remember the Invincible mission right now though.
