Hmm. I should play something. I never played past WiH R1, so that's an option! Will report back soon. :)

Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
So I'm a bit late in replying to this, but 2 weeks ago I actually played A Walk in the Sun for the first time. Taranis did a nice job with the campaign. I mean there's nothing new or amazing, but it's well done for what it does.

I haven't played any of the releases of JAD 2.21 since 1.0, but I promise I'll got back and play it again once JAD 2.22 comes out on the 22nd (Axem is still on schedule for that...right?)

I'm still playing some of the Wings of Dawn misisons in my free time, both from the classic and the remake.
Other than that, there's Dimensional Eclipse, the JADXA arcade, the new ASW. Heard good things about BtA, meaning to give it a try.

Still plugging away at BtA. Finally got some time to play it again today. Did anyone else find Playing Pirate really tough?

Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
Well shoot guys over the last week or so i booted up the old FreeSpace machine for the first time in years. Downloaded and finished Blue Planet Complete. So good. For the first time in a while I feel like life has meaning again! :D

Will definitely play some actual new campaigns whenever I next find the time. Obviously gotta play BtA and find all the snails... Any other suggestions of campaigns to play from the past, I dunno 5 years? Really wish I'd stuck around.

 
Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
New Wings of Dawn, Just Another Day, Aerilon is Burning over at Diaspora spring to mind.


I've gotten a big nostalgic urge recently & played through a bunch of old games, with got me wanting to play through FS2 again. Unfortunately, I would feel guilty for not finishing BtA first, which I keep putting off due to me wanting to be able to put 2-3 hours in it uninterrupted, and that kind of timeslot is getting increasingly rare (which, incidentally is also the reason my ability framework keeps getting stalled).

tldr; I want to play BtA & FS2, but can't find time to do it properly.

Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
Played through the german exclusive "Relic - Spuren im Sand" (translated: Relic - Traces in the Sand) campaign today. A campaign from 2009 with 40 missions and 10 cutscenes...

That was indeed interesting, but in my opinion it want to tell way too much in this campaign.
The Death of Khonsu II and the fight for the Vasudan throne, The GTVA return to Sol which leads into a complete GTVA-Sol war that end in a reunification. The Return of the Hammer of Light that had knowledge about an Ancient Superweapon, that they want to use and to hand over the Shivans with ETAK. Oh and you have to deal something like two complete Shivan invasion fleets, of course.

Everything in only one campaign... other people need only one Plotline for a whole campaign.

But actually i did have much more problems with the voice acting. It uses voice files from FS1 & FS2 most of the time in the missions. And some TTS-pieces for exclusive lines. Even i think that TTS was not implemented very well here, the voice files from the original campaigns were the much bigger problem for myself. You hear the same sentences over and over again and they never regard the developments that happens in this campaign. So i had often the impression, that the Story is not carried on in the mission itself, because you always hear the same.

That has grabbed my attention and piqued my interest.

I just wish my German was better. :(

 
Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
I just started playing through FS1 for the first time since I was a teenager. It's been really cool so far, but it's been making me want to get into making missions -- specifically for Fate of the Galaxy. I have yet to determine if their release will be coming this year. If so, then that will definitely make me want to make a series of missions all the more. Already have one good idea that would be perfect for a 3-4 mission campaign too. I just have no idea how to actually start mapping using FotG assets. I'm sure I'll figure it out though.

Will be playing through FS2 in short order, was breezing through the game and realized I was on easy mode. Oops! Don't care though, had a fun time.

EDIT: I opened FRED and the SW assets were the first thing to pop up. Looks like all you do is have to load the mod?

I wouldn't bet on that, unfortunately.

Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
I spoke to fast, Blue Planet now crashes out, I've played 6 missions, now when I try to start it kicks me out instantly,

it kicked out with this error: FS2 Open has stopped working.


Interesting, Freespace 2 retails works fine, also the MediaVp updated edition, I just tested Exile and Diaspora both works and I played 'beyond the red line ' without any problems, when I try Blue Planet it fails, I did a file integrity check, all check out well, ( I'm running through Knossos 0.78 )

anyone had this before?

Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
Just got blown up to hell by Heliades' beams in recent Inferno update. I tried to save the Reyes in Sol Gate blockade mission even knowing it's impossible.

Gosh, I barely remember age of low-poly models and now I know why I don't want to remember that xD.

Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
have not tried Inferno, got Blue Planet working again, think it's the onboard graphics that's causes crashing out etc, works perfectly on my AMD Radeon.

Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
During the course of the last weeks i am played through some campaigns.

Next to A Walk in the Sun and VeniceMirror i reviewed in the corresponding threads, i also replayed Renegade Resurgence.
Well, the story is simply absurd, but the mission design is still very solid most of the case. Even very retaily from today's perspective. But it is still able to entertain if you do not think about the story too much. There are some challenging missions, even especially the capital ship battles could be much better, because they use Attack orders instead waypoints (i did not change that in my Knossos transition, because i was simply too lazy to rechoreograph all these battles :rolleyes:)


A few days ago i started with Shadow Genesis finally and i am finished the Prologue so far. Well i have to say, i am missing some kind of introduction for all these changes in the universe within it's campaign like there was in FreeSpace 2. FS2 was understandable even without the TechDB... But SG is only a whole question mark with all the storychanges if you do not take your time to read through the TechDB before you start the first mission. I strongly recommend the TechDB anyway, because you will not even see the weapon loadout screen in the first missions and so will not get any information about the weapons you are using.

Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
Blue Planet: Age Of Aquarius.  I am...I am lost for words.  This is unbelievable.  Riveting.  If this was an officially released expansion pack, I'd buy it in an instant.  Of course, I feel the same way towards Silent Threat: Reborn, Homesick (my personal favorite), Derelict, the remade Inferno, and Sol: A History.

I can't wait to get to BP: War In Heaven.

All this starting from a game that came out 20 years ago.  Talk about giving Starcraft a run for the money :)

Re: What Freespace are you (Re)Playing Now?
Starcraft and Brood War were excellent, starcraft 2 is mediocre.
