RE-RELEASE: Dimensional Eclipse - The Singularity (COMPLETE)


As you may know, the previous release of Singularity, as a sort of side story, was "incomplete" so to speak due to me having used an asset I should not have been playing with. Well, I finally got around to rebuilding that part of the mission using a different model, and wrapped up the campaign - didn't sit well with me to have something incomplete "released", so here it is!

The Singularity - Complete Edition: Magnus von Sternberg, an ex-corporate enforcer working for Banshee company, is hired to investigate an uncharted Transpace Phase Lane at the edge of Terran Space...

Features:
Everything that was in the original Singularity
A proper ending to Singularity Space (RiP cargo container boss)
An extra mission
Some new ship(s)

Requirements:
DE v1.1b
FSO 3.7.2 RC1+
MediaVPs 2014
A Decent Computer

Downloads
Single Package (Mediafire)

Installation:
Ensure you have the mediavps 2014 installed properly.
Ensure you have DE 1.1b installed properly in a folder named 'DE'.
Create a new folder in your freespace2 root directory titled 'DE Singularity' and unpack the .7z files into that folder.
Run the mod by opening the launcher and selecting 'DE Singularity' folder under the mod tab.
Start FreeSpace 2 via the launcher and create a NEW PILOT.
Select the 'DE-Singularity' campaign in the campaign room before clicking 'Start' in the main menu.

Droid, you sneaky bugger. I didn't realize you updated this too! I will be giving this go as soon as I can get out of the office.
If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong

 
Re: RE-RELEASE: Dimensional Eclipse - The Singularity (COMPLETE)
Aw it ended. Really fun. Especially the last mission. Does it have alternate endings?

Re: RE-RELEASE: Dimensional Eclipse - The Singularity (COMPLETE)
I'm pretty sure the end-end is the same though, which is why I didn't really consider them different endings, there's only very minor differences.
It's nothing worth replaying again to see, just cosmetic differences so that the dialogue choices have -some- effect.

Re: RE-RELEASE: Dimensional Eclipse - The Singularity (COMPLETE)
I really liked the way you used Shivan ships with black lasers. Very cool.

 
Re: RE-RELEASE: Dimensional Eclipse - The Singularity (COMPLETE)
It does not works for me it crashes saying:
ERROR: "Invalid Species Exarchy defined in table entry for ship EXF Marquis#Kaalith." at ship/ship.cpp:1400

 
Re: RE-RELEASE: Dimensional Eclipse - The Singularity (COMPLETE)
What version of the FSO executable are you using, badpenguin? Also, please post your log file. I've lost track of the directions to do so. Will someone please post those? I can't even think of the file name right now.
There are only 10 kinds of people in the world;

Please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<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.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Re: RE-RELEASE: Dimensional Eclipse - The Singularity (COMPLETE)
Sounds like the base mod isn't loading. Gonna need to see a log file, as mentioned.

Sorry for the late reply, somehow missed this.
This minicampaign requires the base Dimensional Eclipse v1.1b, which doesn't seem to be loaded with your configuration. Check your mod folder names with mod.ini.

Try switching the game's language to English. I believe that error happens when the language isn't set to English.

Re: RE-RELEASE: Dimensional Eclipse - The Singularity (COMPLETE)
Okay, just overwrite the DE_Core.vp file with this. This just has the strings.tbl file removed.
