RELEASE - Fortune Hunters 2260 (TBP)
When empires rise and fall, alliances are forged and broken, wars are won and lost, the universe gives birth to its greatest heroes and myths. Some become legendary for centuries, while other ones vanish in the sands of time, buried and forgotten. And during the chaos in which the Interstellar Alliance was born, many people fought and died for the cause, some from the most unlikely places...

difficulty problems? ->   http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,52253.0.html   (dont be ashamed)


IMPORTANT NOTES:  ;7
1.) REQUIRES USE OF THE INF BUILD!!!
2.) REMOVE ANY PREVIOUS FH RELEASES, the first installment is included here.

DOWNLOAD LINKS:
Mirror 1:  http://proxima-fleet.com/files/download.php?id=10  (thx to Primus once again)
Mirror 2: http://www.freespacemods.net/download.php?view.44 //Added by swantz because the other site has been down for some time.

For all those many people who did not  :( play the first one: DO NOW!
For the people who enjoyed  :o the first: REPLAY IT, to be on the safe side. The Hunters are pretty plot heavy, especially the new episode. Update your basics.

Features: (same concept as FH2259)
- action-packed trip through exotic canon places in the B5 universe
- immersing storyline and writing
- MAJOR battles

Install as usual, just put the vp in your TBP folder. And remove the old FH in case!

Known issues:
- game crashes right away => I SAID USE THE INF BUILD! That's a independent program in your TBP folder
- the game sometimes crashes in Mission 8. => That issue is known. The reason not. Sorry.


Have fun     -      Vidmaster

Re: RELEASE - Fortune Hunters 2260 (TBP)
An intense and well-thought out campaign, methinks. Also,

Spoiler:
That cliffhanger ending is going to gnaw at me now!

I have to say that I loved some of the combat in the missions, particularly slaughtering foolish Shadow fighters in a borrowed Nial. Awesome sauce.

Re: RELEASE - Fortune Hunters 2260 (TBP)
:eek:  YAY!!!! Can't wait to play these again.  Come to think of it, never did finish 2259, I think during a long mission involving the Drazi I had a bug where I never received the jump out message after everyone left and thus had to replay it, which I really didn't want to do.
Deuternomy 22:11 explained:

Well there are many different speculations going on about this law about not mixing fibers and at least one explanation claims that it was a symbolic gesture designed to keep a pure sense of culture, people, and religion.  Seperation of crop  in the vinyard, mentioned in Dt. 22:9 and 22:10 seem to reaffirm this idea, though there may be other reasons as well.

And now, an excerpt from the Prayer of Mordecai, the Book of Esther Chapter C (New American Bible Official Catholic version).

Est C:5  You know all things.  You know, O Lord, that it was not out of insolence or pride or desire for fame that I acted thus in not bowing down to the proud Haman.  6  Gladly would I have kissed the soles of his feet for the salvation of Israel.  7  But I acted as I did so as not to place the honor of man above that of God.  I will not bow down to anyone but you, my Lord.  It is not out of pride that I am acting thus.

Then use the Inferno build which isn't FRED and isn't for debugging.

Re: RELEASE - Fortune Hunters 2260 (TBP)
there SHOULD be a program called fs2_open_3_6_9_INF in your TBP folder.

The game's launcher defaults to the standart build, so pay attention to that.

Re: RELEASE - Fortune Hunters 2260 (TBP)
got the first bug and oddly enough, it's in 2259 and not in the new episode. A minor change I made had some silly side effect. Replaced the campaign with a fixed version.  :)    Thx to noodle for reporting  :)  :yes:

IF MISSION 3 OF 2259 IS UNBEATABLE, PLEASE REDOWNLOAD.

TBP is a stand alone program.  You should not be running it out of your FS2 directory.  You need to download and install it in it's own directory.

Why not? It's not like the builds are really different, you realize. :P

Re: RELEASE - Fortune Hunters 2260 (TBP)
I really like the general mission structure and story for the campaign so far.  With the exception of having to fix game balancing issues for maybe two missions thus far, it's been pretty fun.  One thing I've been wondering, and forgive me because this may be more of a pof issue, but does the Vree Saucer have its trademark "Rain Cannon" that was seen in Shadow dancing?

Anyways, asides from a few game balance issues for two missions, this is really something.  Looking forward to the end. :D

Re: RELEASE - Fortune Hunters 2260 (TBP)
Just finished it. It's awful and  extremely difficult (the "Alexander" and "Drazi Firehawk" missions).
Are you... one person Vidmaster ? If you don't precise that I must be thinking that you're a group of people. I can hardly believe all that much was done by just one person.
Thank you very very much for this great campaign.
