Angry Where???

I finished the game today and was in for a big letdown. The end movie rolled and it was over. No Starbuck or Apollo. No time travel mission. WTF. Very disappointed. What happened? Are we supposed to go back and play the game in extreme difficulty mode to get to see our heros, Starbuck and Apollo? The easy mode was difficult enough.

I got the game for Christmas (PS2), so your thoughts are welcomed and very interesting. I'm still on the first mission, trying to get a feel for the controls and the game. I find that it helps me when I change the view to inside the cockpit (instead of watching the viper on screen). I've played with Y-Axis on and off, and I seem to prefer it "on," but I can't "win" the level yet, although I suspect that I have to kill the Cylon Raider Leader in order to win the level, as that seems to be the only one left when the Galactica blows. This game is pretty difficult so far...

I had assumed that the Starbuck/Apollo cutscene would be in one of the movie scenes that you have to unlock, but I guess that is wrong, from your question.....

There was to be an actual mission where Adama encounters the two in a time travel sequence. Sadly I think they didn't include it.

I've heard folks say they've hit it though. Just let this thread up (maybe retitle it). Dirk is in there somewhere kingfish.

If they hit it there must be something I am missing. All I know is that the game ends after 14. The credits are shown and back to the first mission?????

I know that at Galacticon one of the game's designers mentioned that the mission with the real Apollo and Starbuck was a secret one. You have to enter codes in order to access it. Where the codes are I don't know, not having the game I haven't spent much time on its sundries.

I've been to different sites, most offering game codes to unlock the mini-series photos and extras, such as here:
http://www.planetsilicon.co.uk/cheat...heats-5610.asp
http://www.cheatheaven.co.uk/playsta...rgalactica.htm

I'm also encountering something called Game Shark, but I don't know what that is. Consider me naive in the PS2 world, as I've only had mine since July...

Perhaps one of those will help.

Default Starting Over

I restarted the game playing at the most difficult level and flew through many levels. No Starbuck or Apollo only more renders and models unlocked. I have a feeling that the secret mission was scrubbed at the last moment.

If it was scrapped it must have been at the last minute since this guy was talking about it only a couple of weeks before the game was released. You would think the discs were already pressed by then.

Default Hatch On VH-1

I remember seeing him on this channel doing the dialogue for the game.

Apollo: Adama move your tail.

This was the show titled "Where Are They Now."
