There are still some warnings, mostly relating to model problems. These use modular tables, so any of them will probably break multiplayer...although this is pretty much going to be the case for any kind of tables, as the multiplayer community seems unwilling to use anything other than FS2 1.0 tables.

You will need a very recent CVS build (last couple of days or so) since these require music.tbl to be XMT compatible.

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
Ooooh, new toys!
*Goes to play with 'em*

[Editery]
A few things I noticed: One, these newest CVS builds are insanely fast to load and in gameplay. That's good. Very, very good.

As for the not-so-good, isn't this a Retail sun, or do I not remember right? [Reedit] (Nevermind this)

And when the Belisarius (or however it's spelled) blew up, all I saw were the yellow cloud shockwaves and not the medium-detail 3D one as advertised. And I just looked at the Effects VP, too. No 3D shockwave model or the effects themselves...

It looks fine to me. The old sun looked different, like this:

Gah. Digging for the medium-quality one now...

Ah, I see. Sometimes effects get substituted for new ones so fast I can't keep track of 'em.  :D

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
OK, this should fix the shockwave problem. I apparently included the textures for both, but forgot to put the model in _effects (but it is definitely in adveffects).

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
Yups, that fixed it right up. Sweet!
Though I noticed the fighter shockwave model isn't there if anyone cares for that...

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
OK, I've just replaced the mv_effects on the server with one without the old shockwave and with the new model (apologies to anyone who was downloading it at the time).

If you want the fighter shockwave, it's not very hard to make an XMT-friendly version. ;) I didn't include it because the shockwave shook ships around enough that it could be annoying, and/or affect compatibility. It, technically, included a gameplay change.

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
I see your point there, as once I killed a Nephilim who's shockwave killed his already-damaged-to-one-percent wingmate. :lol:

For the record, I didn't have anything to do with the wing loadout button, and I'd prefer to be credited as Galemp rather than GalEmp or GalacticEmperor. Thanks.

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
Erm, are the Shivan AAAfs still borked for anyone else?  The regular beams look fine, but the AAAfs have the horrible 'red and white rods' effect.   :blah:

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
It appears HTL Herc2 is missing.
Also, the splash screen that was in 3.6.7 is still present (intentional ?)
When something major etc. Orion explodes, no shockwaves are seen...

I can confirm this...
No HTL Herc 2 and old Splash...
But I cannot say anything about the shockwaves 'cause I only "tested" the MediaVP in the TechRoom...

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
Seems there are...issues, the way thruster effects are handled by each fighter. What I mean is, that if you look the GTF Ares's engines and then the ones in Erinyes you will norice a clear difference. Ares's engines are very smooth and good looking, but Erinyes and almost everyones else still have those ugly retail thruster maps "behind" the SCP Thrusters effects. Hope you'll understand what I mean, it looks really annoying to me.

I don't know if this is really related to Media_vp's, but it's been around for a long time...

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
That's not related.  A number of the HTL fighters, but not all, had the retail cones removed.  The Erinyes, Pegasus, and Perseus I know don't have them, the Ares, new Herc II, and a couple of others don't.  It's inconsistant but not an issue with the code.

Also, the Herc II is in mv_models.  The reason it doesn't show up in-game is that there is also a Herc II with glowpoints in mv_effects that takes precedence.
who needs a signature? ;)
It's not much of an excuse for a website, but my stuff can be found here

Re: SHINY - MediaVP 3.6.8 Beta
then just download it separately! jesus, people, the search button may not work but you can still find the time to work your way through the pages of FS Modding or any of the other fs forum threads to find what you're looking for.

on a happier note; yay! new media vp's to lower my FPS! :D

Did you ever hear about FEEDBACK?
We just want to report what works and what doesn't!
And when something is supposed to be in the MediaVPs, it should work! If not, I report it!

And of course I know that I could download them separately...
But if I would download everything separately, I would have millions of files in my FS2-dir...
Trying to clean the old files out would be a pain in the...
