Default I can\'t even cheat to beat this!

I'm still on the hull strapped to the over grown pea shooter.
God mode don't work. Giving the enterprize 16000 health don't work. apparently the enemy doesn't use points of damage as each shot takes a percentage. as soon as I figure out how the did this I'm re writing the script so that I can blow them up in 4 shots like they're doing me now.

Did I mention that I really hate this level. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

You have to fire down the incoming torpedos to avoid being damaged. Always destroy these before you consider making any attacks. And destroy the little ships as they fly past too, when you can't fire on the main ship.

I found it interesting that if you try to noclip while in the turret, you get a message saying "You must first exit the vehicle". Makes me curious to see what the vehicle looks like. Anyone have an idea how to exit it?

(BTW - already finished the game. Now Im going back and exploring the map levels themselves. Discovering some interesting things.)

You can't exit the vehicle. You are locked into it by the script.

And telling me 29,000 times [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] ( See this thread ) that I have to shoot every thing but the ship to get one or two potshots at it once in a while isn't helping me beat this thing.
I guess I'll keep trying but 4 days of "Duck Hunt" is getting a bit old..... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

[edit]
And why didn't Tuvok certify me on "Hull mounted-Pulse cannons" while we were doing the weapons thing?

Make sure you shoot at the three red target circles, and stop shooting if they are gone!!! You will see it's not that hard if you do that (if it still difficult, then save it every time you distroyed a target circle).

Easy. And I understand what I'm SUPPOSED to be doing. It's just that I can't seem to get the d@mn gun to lock onto target. in short I suck at this. I keep missing. the shots. the ships.. the big pink targets... the only thing I can be sure of hitting is the hull plating. And the reason I'm complaining here is My roomates could care less about games and wouldn't care (not that y'all want to hear me whine, but hey..) if I was stuck in this map the rest of the year.

Well if you cant beat it maybe you could simply skip it and go to the next level (attrexian colony) You wont miss anything realy, as soon as the ship is disabled you go down the colony. Though I dont know the cmd for that particular level..

Are you using the Alternate fire? or standard fire? Don't use alternate. It leaves you open since you cant fire for a few seconds.

Also, check your options to see if you have Weapon Aim set on. With that free-moving crosshair, it made it d@mn hard to hit the targets considering that there was also a crosshair on the turret itself. Took me a while to realize it, but having 2 crosshairs moving around was screwing up my aim big time.

There is another cheat that might assist with this level. Try going to the console and typing "timescale .75" to slow the game down, allowing you to make your shots on the enemy ships more accurate. You can also try to slow it down more with "timescale .5" or "timescale 0.25" (VERY slow!)

To return the game back to normal speed, just type "timescale 0"

Don't know, but I'll try that first just to see [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
thanks for the timescale tip. I didn't know they coded it into EF2 the used it for the "bullit time" in max payne. you could jump sidewys hit that and take your sweet d@mn time to aim as the badd gus shot where you were. It was way cool.

It's the Attrexian colony level. Type maplist and all maps will come up. Scroll down to find it and clickk on it. Save it and restart.

That whole level, from the timed warp core to the hull was one of the worst levels any any FOS game I ever played. I was really likeing the game, the plot, graphics. I dont mind boss monsters and such but timed levels really suck.

This level is well hard!
Even on easy!
NOCLIP won't work, but god mode will!
Still it makes no difference, because the Enterprise blows!
