Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
 :yes: :yes: :yes:  finally.

One thing bugs me out though...   ...there is a constant humming like bbrrruuummmm, especially when using the afterburner.
It's NOT present in FS2. It IS present in FS PortMain I am NOT using the mediavps. I AM using the newest FSPort (via Turey's Int). I AM using a 3.6.10 (via Turey's Int).

Problem1: Field of Destruction looks silly. There are maybe 3 or 4 asteroids there  :lol:   Then, you get closer and tadada!, out of nowhere, dozens of dangerous asteroids on a collision course.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Just finished it. Great campaign. Fantastic campaign. Brilliant campaign!  :D :yes:
One bloody hell of a work! Definitely in one league with Derelict. The waiting was absolutely worth it!

Just one li'll thing: In the mission where you destroy the Jotunheim, I got killed during my first try, but the game told me that I had lost the fith time and if I'd like to jump the mission. The same came in the debriefing, after I won the second try.  :confused:

Now BWO can come... :D

Only could play the first 10 missions last night. All I can say is WOW.
So much better than old ST: just as good as BP.

I sure hope the next missions will be just as good!

I've got the very same opinion. Maybe asteroid field could be much denser.


Other possible problem:

In the next mission you are able to select Loki as your fighter, and maybe I'm wrong, but I'm nearly sure enemies can spot them like a normal fighter. (And it's cloaking device hasn't been cracked yet...)

Take a look at this mantis report (#1843).

This issue should be fixed. Please check that you have a new build. (Or maybe the bug is still alive).
IF YOU HAVE TROUBLES WITH FS2:
  • Please, please, please, READ and UNDERSTAND the sticky threads in FreeSpace & FreeSpace Open Support board.
    A lot of people are willing to help you, but, as anyone can understand, seeing the very same "issues" repeated again and again can become quite depressing. Please, spend a bit of time trying to solve the issue by yourself.
    (Lobo deserves a monument).
  • Then, if you aren't still able to solve your issue, feel free to ask for help in that same board.
    FYI, most of the troubles are caused by wrong mod installations which lead to either missing data or undesired cross-effects between them. Always follow the mod installation instructions and keep a clean FS2 installation as explained in the sticky threads. Two additional links about how the game handles game data:
  • If you think that you've discovered a bug, mantis it.
    Provide as much info as you can, and try to narrow it down. A lonely "FS2 doesn't work" is not a good report.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Small nitpick:
As far as I see, the several Orion variants actually use different pof files (models) with a different texture mapped to their side.

Was a pure SCP version (using the new model) ever made with the proper nameplates?

Generally:
An AWESOME release. This is what Volition should have released all those years ago.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
This was all indeed fun up until I apparently screwed things up.

Spoiler:
In The Last Hurrah, I respond to the apparent trap in a manner that is a tad bit too slow. Because of this, each and every friendly ship is disabled. Yet when I manage to hit Alt-J, I'm red-alerted to the next mission and my disabled status is succesfully carried over. Once there, I cannot accomplish anything, because I have no engines and there doesn't seem to be a support ship available. Most importantly I am unable to jump away and the mission doesn't end. I won't be retrying this mission immediately since it is 2AM here and I'd lke to get some sleep. Basically: am I to suspect that my ship continues to be disabled the next time I try to resume the campaign? If yes, it would seem that I must restart the campaign or fiddle myself a new campaign file or something.

Otherwise, no complaints so far. And the voice acting is as classy as you can expect from a fan product, if not even more.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Lobo,
Spoiler:
your wingman wouldn't have mentioned jumping out if it wasn't relevant. For the first time, listening to them actually pays off ;) But yeah, that's a problem. I had to play this mission like 3 times to get it right. Just replay your previous mission (the one where you get disabled) and jump out the moment your wingman tells you so.

Similar with the Shivans attaching to your hull, the first time I reacted on instinct and shook them off before I realised it, the second time I was killed in several seconds, and only on the third attempt did I understand that you had to use the afterburner...

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Haha, Lobo - I had the exact same thing happen to me. :p

I've attached the edited mission I used to get past it - press T at the beginning and it will restore your engines so you can actually do stuff in that mission. ;)

Ta, VA. I'll continue with this tomorrow.

Spoiler:
Good point, but I was faithfully waiting for Command to issue the GTFO order. And the thing in it was that Alt-J didn't (merely) engage the subspace drive but ended the mission as well. Which was rather surprising and annoying when I in desperation did that with broken down engines.

Spoiler:

Now that was awesome. A delicately placed nuance that is bound to cause panic and a little smirk on your face, if you've happened to watch the infamous extra videos.

And wouldn't it be possible to make the last mission use a skybox if STR is run on FSO?

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
I'm getting no HTL models at all... only the herc and the mirmy seem to be HTL ones, all the others are retail.
I figure I'm messing up the mod.ini config.. I used this: "secondrylist = -mod fsport_mediavps,fsport_str,fsport,mediavps;" (the ones with "_" is actually because I have those folders with that).

could you give me a hand with this?
