Try the Installer again.  There was a problem with the file hosting site that should now be resolved.

You're right... and it seems to have been corrupt since mid-December.  I've re-uploaded it and tested the new upload.  It should be good to go now.

Has any progress been made with updating compatibility with MediaVPs 2014? Certain medium-size explosions are missing their shockwaves. Freighters, for example, and whatever bombs the Shivans launch at the Repulse in "Ghosts." Instead of a shockwave that throws my ship around there's just this flash of light and this glow texture and no blast damage occurs or anything.

Shockwaves still function normally in Freespace port and Freespace 2.

Can you post your fs2_open.log?

Here we are. The debug build crashed right when shooting down one of the shockwave-less bombs.

What happens if you turn off -3dshockwave?

Also, why do you have a directory called "2. Silent Threat"?  Can you rename it to "fsport-str"?

I changed the directory name back. I had modified it to keep the campaigns in chronological order in the launcher but I can do that with the "modname" line in the ini file.

Disabling 3D shockwaves doesn't actually help like I thought it would. There's still just a disappointing glow sort of texture. I think there's some data not being loaded properly out of the mediavps. It works fine without any of the mediavps.

For reference, the bigger explosions, like destroying the Aten cruiser in "Silence All Voices" still make some nice proper shockwaves.

It sounds like you're experiencing this bug, which I reported three years ago.
"Your fighter is running out of oil.  Please check under the hood and add more if necessary"
--strings.tbl, entry 177

"Freespace is very tired.  It is shutting down to get some rest."

So if you  use the installer which cutscene pack is downloaded (480p,720p or 1080p)?

720p.

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.4]
Thanks... one thing I did notice is that the voice pack that I had on my system with the installer was smaller in size than the downloaded version from the link above.

There have been a few small changes made to the voice pack over time.

I just ran the FSO Installer and it updated the STR vp.  Just curious, what was in the update?

A very small enhancement to He Who Rides the Tiger.  It's probably not noticeable unless you look for it.

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED [Updated V1.4]
Umm...  might this enhancement possibly have included an "Invalid ship class name: Live Shivan" ?
Because I was crashing exactly before the briefing for that mission with this error when I used yesterday's file,
with today's version, everything works fine so far.
I'm attaching a screen shot with the error from yesterday.
Quite a coincidence to catch a bug that lasted for a day in a years-old mod :rolleyes: on first install.

You saw nothing. :nervous:  The latest version should work fine.
