Shipset launcher 2000, which can be found in the Install, Extract & Shipset Launchers
Visual Basic 6 Runtime
files (if needed) from the Miscellaneous Files
1. When you
first open up Shipset Launcher 2000 (SSL2000.exe),
you will be presented with this screen. Click on OK.
Next you will automatically
be presented with the Options Menu. If it does not
pop up, you'll need to click on the Options button.
2. In the Options Menu,
click on the browser button and search for the X-Wing
Alliance EXE. More than likely it will be found here:
3. Now here's
the tricky part. For some odd reason Shipset Launcher
creates its own Shipsets directory that you have to
put your shipsets in. You can't put them into your
own folder. So if I put Shipset Launcher 2000 into
Utilities\Shipset Launcher 2000
4. You must put your shipsets
into the directory below. Be sure your Shipset Directory
in the Options Menu reflects that.
Utilities\Shipset Launcher 2000\Shipsets\
5. You have another option
to skip the opening cutscenes, if you wish to do so,
check the box. You can always go back and uncheck
it if you wish.
6. Click on OK. and SSL2K
You will notice that the screen is blank, that is
because you haven't placed your shipsets *.gob files
in the Shipset folder. Do this now. Then click on
the Refresh Shipset list button:
You will probably notice that I have a few more shipsets
than you have. Sorry, but I can not distribute them
as they are setup for my specific game, so please
don't ask, thank you.
|HOW to RUN
the title of the shipset you want to run.
2. Press the Launch Shipset
button to launch the shipset or the Info on Shipset
to see the author's name, contact information, and
a short blurb.
Launcher 2000 will install the shipset of choice and
launch X-Wing Alliance for you. When the Pilot Selection
dialog pops up, be sure to select the pilot specified
in the shipsets readme file or information. If there
was no pilot specified, either select the pilot that
you did not create or your own personal pilot.
4. When you are done playing,
select Click here when done playing. A dialog
box may pop up asking you if you want to keep the
pilot that was installed. If you have not finished
the shipset, be sure to keep the pilot! If you do
not, your saved game data will be destroyed.
note that this launcher produces a runtime error on
1 out of about 20 systems after it has finished installing
the shipset. If you see a runtime error, please be
sure you have the Visual Basic 6 Run Time File installed.
If they are installed, no sweat. Just launch XWA manually
and make sure to choose the correct pilot. You will
be able to play the shipset. When you are done with
the shipset, just run Shipset Launcher 2000 again.
