[FA] Mission 1, Campaign 2
Well, I have a prelim version done, but I cant test it since FS2 gives me a stupid error saying my virtual memory has run out, even though it hasn't!

anyway, here it is:

edit: this is the exact error:

Error: Out of memory.  Try closing down other applications, increasing your
virtual memory size, or installing more physical RAM.

File:U:\src\cvs\fs2_open.pilot\code\GlobalIncs\WinDebug.cpp
Line: 1492

Try reinstalling fs2 if problem persists and its the kernel32.dll you will have to reinstall windows.

I tried it in FREd and it looks okay. I load the mission and FS just hangs, but it does that with my own mission too. What builds are you using Singh ?

I tried with both the latest 22-08 Taylor build and the 02-08 build. Both have the same problems.

I just tried it. Same thing. Mission must have gotten corrupted somehow.

yeah, I'm lovin' Taylors work too Singh. Which FRED build though ?

and I think Swooh is down again.

I think my FRED files are being corrupted too 'cos I just cannot get a custom mission to work (I usually get a freeze after "commiting") but the retail campaign has been 100% so far.
sometimes FRED doesn't even recognise the files.

Okay. Here's a real oddity. I turned off the nebulae and for good measure deleted the sun (I didn't like how FRED2_Open was rendering the entire background blue) and the crash went away.

Then I put the nebula and sun back and the crash reappeared. Finally I delete the sun and everything started working. :wtf:

Sounds like an FS2_Open bug to me. Well at least the file isn't corrupt :D

Thanks, I'll try it out tonight. :nod:

Have a few more edits and balancing issues to handle anyway, so i'll re-upload it ASAP.

Singh: Feedback for you pal
1: Loadout Screen. A minor quibble, but having to replace default weapons with better kit is a little irksome. I always replace stanard issue stuff with the latest kit 'cos the player will obviously want it.

2: Messages. I think the initial messages between Ionas and Alpha were a little too long. And I doubt if the Ionas really needs to inform you as your wingmates die (though I can see why you put that in)

3: Gamma3, You forgot to make the Artemis scanneable!! Plus, I didn't have time to really check it out anway. By the time things had gone quiet it was too far away and I couldn't be arsed going back. I would make the scanning of Gamma3 the Shivan's cue. I like the idea though. (be a good opening for a mission in it's own right)

4: I didn't really know why the Ionas was waiting round. Maybe you could disable it and have the engines gradully repaired.

5: Pace, The mission was alittle short but adding slightly larger delays between wings would sort that.

The balance was pretty much spot on though and I thought it was a good opening mission. The corvettes don't play a major part in the mission though I doubt if they could without spoiling the balance (I'm working along those lines for mission2 BTW) :)

Which should be ready soon, so you can repay the favour ;)

edit: oh yeah, try increasing the gap between messages as I missed most of 'em and make the Ionas an escort ship.

The mission doesn't work for me. :( It tells me it cannot load the mission. I've tried opening it in FS2_Open, FRED2_Open, and FRED2 Retail, all of them failing.
