RELEASE: Bem Cavalgar v1.1
Bem Cavalgar



Quote
Bem Cavalgar is a campaign set during the Shivan invasion of Vasuda in the Great War. The story follows a group of loyalist Vasudan officers who stay behind to defend their homeworld and the evacuating civilians.

You play as both Captain Senbi, leader of the loyalists, and as an unnamed fighter pilot, Azriel 1.

This campaign is one of Blaise Russel's greats. giving the player a choice of the sequence of missions to fly, and with limited resources to make use of throughout.


1) INSTALLATION

* Extract all contents of the zip file to ypur Freespace folder.
* Select the mod "Bem Cavalgar" via your FSOpen mod launcher.
NOTE: This release requires that you have installed the Freespace Port, Freespace Port Media VPs 2014, and the MediaVPs 2014.  There should thus be folders named the following in your Freespace2 directory:
fsport
fsport-mediavps_2014
MediaVPs_2014

2) ABOUT BEM CAVALGAR

Bem Cavalgar is a campaign about Vasudan officers fighting against the Shivan invasion of their homeworld.

There is a strategic element to Bem Cavalgar. You, as Captain Senbi, have a limited amount of resources with which to fight the Shivans.

Your stock of ships and weapons is set during the introductory cutscene that plays at the start of the campaign.

Playing this mission on lower difficulties will give you a large number of ships and weapons. Playing it on higher difficulties will give you less choice in ships and weapons.

Once you have played through the introductory cutscene, you can always change the difficulty afterwards - this will not change the number of ships and weapons you have.

3) CREDITS

Freespace Port - all Freespace 1 content
Freespace Upgrade Project - strategic map ships based on their models
Black Wolf - Abydos installation

If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

Re: RELEASE: Bem Cavalgar v1.1
Have only played a few missions in to this but I do highly recommend this campaign. The missions are well thought out and the limited resources totally change mission preparations (never have you been so scared to put a Prometheus on a fighter...).

Hats off to Admiral Nelson for updating this, and to Blaise Russel for it's creation! :yes:

Re: RELEASE: Bem Cavalgar v1.1
When I launched the mod, I got 47 warnings. Really not sure what's wrong, as I have the needed folders (FSPort, FSPort MediaVPs 2014, MediaVPs 2014, all in the correctly named folders) and other mods didn't encounter problems.

Attached is my fs2 log, as well as the warnings I got when running the 3.7.4 DEBUG build (BC_Error.txt).

Re: RELEASE: Bem Cavalgar v1.1
I'm guessing that those 6 vp files aren't supposed to be there? By the way, thank you for the help! :D

UPDATE: It's now working, no warnings detected or anything. Thanks again!

Re: RELEASE: Bem Cavalgar v1.1
tango1_fs2, tango2_fs2, tango3_fs2, warble_fs2 should be in main freespace folder. I don't know why GOG placed copies into data/movies. :rolleyes:
tangoA_fs2 tangoB_fs2 are some broken files that nobody knows for what are these ;)

The odd thing is, I already have the tango1_fs2, tango2_fs2, tango3_fs2, warble_fs2 files in my freespace folder. Maybe I forgot to remove these ones  :nervous:
