RELEASE: Flames of War - Coming of the Storm
Finally, it's here.


*****

http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=2c937bcb38ef65c1ab1eab3e9fa335ca25c30194ef361344

3 files:
FOW_COTS1 - contains maps, models, hud, effects, sounds
FOW_COTS2 - contains insignias, interface, cbanims, voice, music
FOW_COTCS_C - mission and table files
Extra - a few loading screen, Herc3 fix and the new Sizif superfreighter

*COTS_FIX*  <----- fixes and improves missions



To save space FS1 music is not included (aside from 2-3 tracks), so I'd recommend getting it from FS post. Campaign should work without it tough.

This is now an official release, as I feel that all the bugs have been squashed. Many thanks to Titan for his help.



NOTE TO CAMPAIGN MAKERS:
The campaign includes the very latest versions of all of my ships.
Minor tweaks to increase eye-candy and performance have bene done on nearly everything.






Tthe list with the location and triggers of various easter eggz
Spoiler:

M01  - scan the liners comm system
M02 (I spy) - scan one of the freighters
M03 (hidden asteriod base) - for a medal, scan the cargo.
M03b (the Rabbit. Or something like that) - a cargo container will pop up near you during the mission (with a warning message) blow it up and then come close to the satellite
M4RR (Crippling Blow) - there's a container floating where the Arcadia used to be. Scan it (HLP gag)
M13 (A Daunting Task) - fly into Dauntlesses hangar bay
M16 (the Good Sheppard) - scan one of cargo containers near the vasudan asteroid base. Can be activated at any time. I luv this gag
M18 (Jack in the Box) - scan or destroy a floating vasudan freighter hulk. It's right below you when the mission starts. Do it fast - preferably before the Inquisitor comes
M19 (the Chase) - There's a cargo container right behind you. Scan it (or blow it up. Can't remember which)
M20 - the gag is audio only and I think it's on by default. If not, you turn it on in the Jack in the Box mission or by typing my name

Re: RELEASE: Flames of War - Coming of the Storm
dragonsniper confused him with the statement about TBP.
(carbine 7 interpreted it like you need TBP for this, but in reality, TBP is just the reason he didn't say 'downloading now!')

Re: RELEASE: Flames of War - Coming of the Storm
So what kind of a campaign is this? Do I need to make a seperate folder for it or do I just copy past everything and click mediavps and start playing?

You NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER do this. Ever. All mods should be placed in their own separate mod subfolders. :mad2:

Unless of course you want to have a fudged up install, then be my guest. :)

Re: RELEASE: Flames of War - Coming of the Storm
Didn't  I put a readme in the COTS_C.rar?


K, long story short - make a folder named FOW_COTS in your Freespace2 directory.
Unpack all 3 (4) files in there.
Everything should be put in it's designated subfolder.

Now, I'm also assuming you have mediavps in a folder named mediavps.
If you have, just select the FOW_COTS folder in the launcher under mods.

If not, edit the mod.ini and make sure the bolded line points towards the mediavps folder. Then select FOW_COTS in the launcher and play.

Re: RELEASE: Flames of War - Coming of the Storm
When I downloaded it yesterday the unpacked contents where folders not .vp s. If this is the case then usevpmage in your tools directory of FS2 to make them into a .vp unless TM fixed that already.

I enjoyed the first three missions. The blasting of the station door was truly epic. I'm happy to have contributed to this campaign albeit little. It turned out really well.

Off to play some more.

They don't need to be VP's. The game will use the folders.
Mediavps' however, do.

Re: RELEASE: Flames of War - Coming of the Storm
It's a post-Capella campaign. Lots of things go boom.



EDIT:
If anyone has problems with the Gates of Adis mission, please post here. It looks like some people may have trouble with the Red-Alert event.
