Happy Vernal Equinox! 3.6.10 RC1!
Here it is, after months years of development and bugfixing, the first 3.6.10 Release Candidate is finally awaiting your approval.  Details are as follows:

FS2_Open/FSO/SCP 3.6.10 RC1 is the equivalent to trunk revision 5114.

Windows builds were using Visual C++ 6.0, compressed as zip for ease of use and distribution - Turey, come on, get the LZMA SDK into your installer already!  :)
Echelon9 provided the OS X builds, which I repackaged into compressed .dmg format
Linux builds were made on OpenGEU 8.10 64bit using the standard build-essential compiler installation - This also included using libopenal.so.1 instead of .0, so a symlink creation may be necessary in case it is reported as missing

Windows builds were compiled to include both Text-to-Speech and Voice Recognition support

Don't use Inferno builds unless you're playing Inferno, or TBP, or any other mod with a gargantuan amount of ships

Launchers, if you don't have one already:
Windows:  Launcher 5.5d
OS X:  Soulstorm's OS X Launcher 3.0
Linux:  YAL or here or whatever you can figure out.

Windows
Regular
Inferno


OS X
Regular
Inferno


Linux
Regular
Inferno

This is not a one-stop shop to make your FSO the prettiest it can be!  These are only the FS2_Open executables.  If you're starting from a fresh retail or GOG install,  you probably want the MediaVPs as well, which should be sticked in a post in the Freespace Upgrade Forum.  For a full blown install it all solution, look at Turey's FSO Installer, but there have been reports of corruption with the 3.6.10 MediaVPs, so you might want to get those separately.

Quote from: chief1983
I've added the ability to disable the requirement that fighters be equipped with primaries and/or secondaries in multiplayer matches through ai_profiles flags, worked to add the 3dshockwave flag to help satisfy as many MediaVP users as possible, in a manner that didn't break any release mods, and worked to push through several other bug fixes.

In addition, the rest of the SCP team has added many more features, although were so far unable to comment on a comprehensive list, and documentation should be coming along in the Wiki shortly for any currently undocumented additions.  Some other notable achievements in the last year include the return of the PXO-style lobby, newer FS2NetD server and client code (dubbed FS2NetD 2.5 currently), the OpenGL Shader Library implementation allowing for shader-based graphics as opposed to the fixed rendering pipeline we were previously limited to, and many other bug fixes from every coder.

I'm just curious, when the final 3.6.10 is released, what happens to the Nightly Builds?

Re: Happy Vernal Equinox! 3.6.10 RC1!
I've been playing with the nightlies as they've been released, including the RC. This is as good a place as any to mention of the things I've noticed:

- Several instances where missiles appear to do no damage after striking a target. This is most commonly seen when firing upon an approaching fighter; the missiles do not veer off and strike countermeasures, but seemingly explode against the fighter without harming it. At first I thought the blast might be absorbed by the shield, but hitting the shielded target with the same payload from a different angle--say, from behind it--will not only penetrate the shield, but also destroy the target. Is there any particular cause for this behavior?

- The squadron indicator sometimes incorrectly lists the status of your wingmen, displaying them as present even if they have departed or been destroyed. This often happens in missions in which you have large numbers of wingmen, such as Chasing Shadows and Secrets Reborn; I'm not certain, but I think this dates back to retail, as I seem to recall it happening a lot in Love the Treason.

- Destroying an enemy fighter's weapons subsystem has no effect. They can still fire. Boooo.  :p

- This may be more of a FREDing issue, but I'll mention it here anyway since I'm not sure. Several missions in ST: R end with your wingmen automatically departing without orders from you; when this happens, support ships will also leave... even if they're docked with you at the time. I assume that there's a SEXP for this, but it probably shouldn't affect support craft in addition to fighters and bombers.
We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.

Re: Happy Vernal Equinox! 3.6.10 RC1!
It's more than likely there is a SEXP-equivalent of "Everyone GTFO NOW".  That may not be what should have been used though.

Re: Happy Vernal Equinox! 3.6.10 RC1!
Actually with over 100 open bugs in Mantis it's very unlikely that we'll fix all the bugs in 3.6.10. What's important is checking that we haven't opened any new ones fixing the old ones.

Even if certain wingmen are ordered to depart, the support ship usually isn't (and can't be, without using a FSO-only sexp hack).  Would it be possible for you to get a video capture of this?

Re: Happy Vernal Equinox! 3.6.10 RC1!
none the less this build breaks nukemod because of the recently introduced primary weapon models bugs. i can understand the need to bring the mod bugfixes up to the current build, and im doing that (and will hopefully add a lot of content in the process). but when a feature that worked before is broke its kinda hard to make the mod work. also the chaotic nature of the bug could possibly indicate a severe problem within the engine.

I'm afraid I don't have any video capture software (let alone a place to upload any video), but I just tested this in Chasing Shadows. I misspoke earlier; the support craft doesn't depart when your wingmen are given the order to leave, but it will abort a resupply in progress if it is currently docked with you.
