I am stuck in M1 :-(  The unknown freighter self-destructs (verified via eventlog) when disabled and I am getting a court-martial ending. Still being congratulated on the cargo containers though, lol :-) Recommend fixing that too.

I did what I think was the last mission and I had a missing debrief.

Spoiler:
I destroyed the cardinal but failed to guide the torpedoes around to the escaping transports. A cutscene appeared, with the transports escaping. A missing debrief message was then shown.

When I restart the game and go into the ready room, this happens:

Code: [Select]
LUA ERROR: [string "shipsaveload-sct.tbm - On Frame"]:1: bad argument #1 to 'maxn' (table expected, got nil)

I'm at a loss for the issue of not being able to type during The Texas Seven. I can't reproduce that at all.

borizz, I need more info on the missing debrief. If you destroyed the Cardinal, then you would get at least one debrief paragraph. As for your script issue.. I can't even understand how the shipsaveload-sct is throwing an error before the mission space is loaded...

I used the freespace open installer to update on the 17th. I did that because I ran into a bug on the Texas Seven where I was able to disable the Cardinal before it could jump, which makes the mission go stuck (I destroyed it afterwards too).

EDIT: I just updated again, there was an update to BTA1_Core.vp.
EDIT 2: My campaign save got wiped, so I can't test anymore.

Spoiler:
The GTS Camden will not dock with Lt. Sermakh's Amun bomber. Sermakh won't cut his engines and the Camden goes on an endless loop attempting to dock until we all die from the endless waves of Horus. Please halp?

Ok. Here's the log file from "Going Out with a Bang" run from the mission simulator. Pisces 2 and 4 just accelerate away from the battle at full speed right from mission start. Running 3.7.4 official release on OSX 10.12

Its not that iam not able to type. I can type everything except a blank(Space)
The thing is, that just nothing happens if i type something in.

Could id be that Win10 is the Problem?

 
I can't believe I forgot this one. On my laptop, the images in the newsroom clip over the text. Could this be a screen resolution issue? Mine's 16x9.

 
Alpha 1 shows up on my ship orders list at the beginning of Bringing Down the Gavel (and Alpha 2 doesn't).

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P

<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.

To Steal A March On has... issues. I had all the transports turn friendly with one (the Crethus, I think) not yet disabled, and then I got traitor'd when my Ballistae landed. Restarted, thought I passed but the mission hung with no hostiles, no dialogue, and no RTB. Restarted again, got to the point where the HOL starts attacking the transports, and got yelled at for firing on them (I was shooting a Seth that was nowhere near a transport).  Arg!!!

(cross posted from the general help forum, thought maybe it was better here...)

So I've been having a really great time playing through Between the Ashes. Until I get to the mission "How the West Was Lost". Some ships are visible, cargo is visible, but I can't see those annoying dock workers and there is some kind of structure in the middle that I keep bumping into.
I've tried what I can think of: reinstalling Freespace, I've downloaded the MVPs individually and put them into the correct folder, I've looked at the log and it does say that the ships table and one other table is invalid !!! but I'm not sure if that's important.
The game was working fine up until that mission.

Log is attached.

Still working my way through the campaign, certainly worth the wait! Run into a few issues so far, however.

Spoiler:
1) When loading from the checkpoint in "Warm Welcome", I couldn't satisfy the objective to scan all of the cargo containers. Replaying the mission from the beginning solved the problem.
2) Encountered PVD Hope's issue with the GTS Camden in "The Will to Act".
3) In "Acts of Volition" Barracuda warheads appear to be impossible to hit when playing the mission for anything other than the first time in an FSO session. Restarting FSO makes the warheads vulnerable, but the issue manifests again whenever the mission is restarted.
