In the midst of another Shivan invasion of the GTVA home systems a mystery begins to unravel itself, and the implications may have a lasting effect on the longevity of the Alliance.

Join the GTD Warlock and its crew as they try to unravel a mystery and defend the GTVA from its enemies. The question is, who is your enemy?

The FSCRP team is proud to bring you this overhaul of the classic campaign Warzone.  This 19 mission campaign, one of the most noteworthy yet made, has been extensively bugfixed and otherwise brought up to date with the latest developments in the Freespace world.

I got this immediately after completing the mission wherein

the player is tasked with protecting the convoy going into the Knossos subspace portal.

When I clicked "No" on the error box to continue to the debriefing, everything looked peachy because I was able to complete all the objectives. But when I go on to continue to the next mission, the game gives me the "You have failed a mission cannot proceed blah blah" message.

Boystrous 19 year old temp at work slapped me in the face with an envelope and laughed it off as playful. So I shoved him over a desk and laughed it off as playful. It's on camera so I can plead reasonable force.  Temp is now passive.

I hate it when campaign bugs slip through.

OK, until such time as a fixed VP is posted, place the attached file in warzone\data\missions to apply the fix.  It should resolve the issue.

Great thing, I've been waiting for this for some time now! :yes: :)

Since I'd like to safe me this for my Christmas holydays next week, I've just played the first two missions for now, but so far it seems to be good work. A bit pitty that the voice acting didn't get finished, but that doesn't matter. Just one peanut: In the first mission you can still give the Disen orders to attack and destroy targets.

Looking forward to play Warzone again!

Cool.  Does it use the Shivan secondaries from the new mediavps?

Thanks for the info :)

 
The mission entitled Tangled Web sucks.  There's one wave of Shivan fighters which rapidly die to Theta wing before you even get there and then... nothing.  At least 45 minutes of nothing; that's all I cared to wait on.

45 minutes of waiting isn't fun...

Is it a good campaign to download?
Do or do not, there is no try...

It's good up until that point, yes.  I'm guessing that Theta was supposed to die to the first wave rather than the other way around (they're the fighters you're relieving, and they start with heavy damage, but they still win) and that their destruction is probably the trigger for further events.  If this is the case, then it needs fixing.

You've somehow managed to locate a bug that no one triggered in testing.  I've just ripped through the mission in FRED and from your general description I can't find any likely triggers of the behaviour you're experiencing.  Which means to fix this little bug I need some more information from you, including:

-The FreeSpace Open build you're using.
-Any mods besides Warzone enabled (including mediavp versions).
-And one vital question:  Does Mjolnir 2 get destroyed 30 seconds into the missions? (It's set to self-destruct in FRED).

EDIT:  Having just tested this in the Dec 15 nightly build of FSO with the 3.6.10 MVPs, I cannot duplicate your bug report.  I'm going to need more information.  Have you tried replaying the mission?  Do you get the order to destroy Aries wing?  Does the Amerton jam Shivan targeting of beams?

I have tried this a bunch of times, too.  I can not reproduce, either.

No.  No it does not.  And I'm still using 3.6.9, having not bothered to update yet; I've been meaning to get to it. 

Edit:  Just downloaded the 3.6.10 build.  Now to see if it works.

A key trigger in that mission is the arrival of Aries wing and the destruction of Mjolnir 2.  That is probably where you're seeing the block.  Why that would happen in 3.6.9 I have no idea, but see if it happens in the latest 3.6.10 nightly build.  Chances are you've stumbled on a bug limited to the older version of FSOpen.
"In the beginning, the Universe was created.  This made a lot of people very angry and has widely been regarded as a bad move."  [Douglas Adams]

 
Yes, I did.  It works in 3.6.10. 

However, I now have another bug.  In the mission "Northwest Passage" I completed all the objectives, didn't screw up a one, completed the bonus objectives, and then stuck around until I killed every last Shivan fighter... and failed the mission. 

The briefing said I succeeded, and even congratulated me for saving the cruiser, but when I tried to accept it said I couldn't because I failed.  What gives? 

Edit:  Yeah, not just a fluke.  It did it again.

Did you apply the patched missions file above?  Someone else had this problem and I posted a fix already.  It has not been patched into the VP yet on the off chance there are any OTHER bugs we missed that need fixing.

That problem is an issue with the campaign file; we changed that missions significantly (because it had some ugly problems) and the goals were never updated in the campaign file itself.

No, I didn't.  I even read that earlier and for some reason forgot about it before I got to the mission.   :nervous:

Anyway, warzone\data doesn't have a \missions folder.  I created it and stuck the file in it; I hope that was the right thing to do.  Trying it now.
