The more I monitor this conversation, the more I begin to realize that I don't think I ever got all the way through Vignettes... ::)

I got to about level 22 and lost all my lives. But it was a really fun set! I should play it again sometime..  :D

Last time I played that set, I started on 'Ace' and just rushed through. 

Needless to say, that kind of heedless style only got me to level 15 or so.  :P

its not a set you can breeze through. You have to work to earn your victory. :)

Ah, but I'm not a patient Descenter. 

I'm a dogfighter who loves to rush-'n-gun.  More fun that way!  :D

Sure, it's a weakness... but you still wouldn't beat me in multiplayer.  8)

well I suggest trying the set on a lower skill level, you'll probably have more luck with your fighting style.

Speaking of Vignettes now: What was your favorite level(s) in the set? Your least favorite? Did it feel like a Descent 1 mission? OR was it something more to you?

Man, those are hard questions...
I would say levels 6 (the submarine level, 'Submerged'), 10 (the one with the sweet exit sequence, feeling like a rollercoaster ride, 'Great Escape'), Secret Level 2 (the Kruel inspired cental reactor core level), and 25 ('Claustraphobia', the level that has a background looking like outdoors but it's acutally a giant massive cave with a Mothership docked within the cave and you can't go outside the grated tube nor the ship) are my faves.

Ah, that's probably why I didn't finish it. Probably got to a certain point and either got stuck, or got frustrated at how battered I was getting towards the end of each level.

Probably should check my save games, probably still have the file lying around somewhere...

Nope.  It's always Ace or Insane for me.  I'll be more patient next time I try that set.

Yes, but Foil sometimes plays under aliases, so you might have killed him a third time and notta knowed it!

 I think he plays as Mega-Thong or something.



Matt, sorry, did not mean to edit you post, I hit the edit button instead of quote...  again...  :( ::)
