What works

Game installs

Game starts up (sometimes) 

Single player gameplay (sometimes, to a degree)

What does not

Game will not exit without crashing. Often crashes or hangs during startup. When it does start it may or may not hang when starting a single player mission. It will, however, always hang when exiting the mission. This last error is the worst for me personally. Because of the way the game fails at this point, the mission's stats are not saved to the pilot file. This makes using it for competitive single player impossible.

Additional Comments

I -really- wanted to give this a Garbage rating, but by the definitions it scores Bronze. Unlike --the entire rest of the X-Wing series--, XvT/BoP GoG-release does not work. Because of the way it crashes so often, this game is complete trash when ran through Wine. As the head of mission creation in the Emperor's Hammer gaming club, it is really frustrating for me to be unable to test missions in XvT without resorting to installing Windows.
