Sorry, I meant
Spoiler:
a planet skybox of Deneb III ( kinda like the one used in Blue Planet ), so that the Hades is in close orbit of it. That would make much more sense for it's debris to fall onto the planet.

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?


Activate the 'fsport-mediavps' folder as the mod in the launcher, with the mod.ini in that same folder having this as the secondary list line:

secondarylist = fsport-str,fsport,mediavps;

TBH it's a rather messy setup - even I had trouble and I've had a fair bit of experience with the mod system. :p

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
What's annoying me right now is
Spoiler:
the mission of the three science ships. Lambda wont move in to secure and jump out with the Ratna. Once everything is dead shivan wise, the GTI jump out and leave me there. The objective say I can warp out, but in debrief a (extremely well done voice actor) superior informs me that because of my cowardice, I'm to be executed....

Something:

Are you sure your mod folders are in the right order? ST:R and/or the FSPort MVPs need to have higher priority than FSPort or the Media VPs. That mission uses edited models that are designed to dock appropriately.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Well, in the ST:R mod folder is a file called mod.ini. Open it up and look at the bottom row, the one with SecondaryList. Make sure all the names in that row have the same names as the folders in your Freespace directory (meaning "fsport" is named "fsport" and not "freespaceport" or something.)

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Just finished. Spent half the day setting up FSO and the other half playing.

Let me just say that this is, by a wide margin, one of the best FS2 campaigns ever made. Almost everything, from the quality of the voice acting to the attention given to FreeSpace lore just screams effort, and that's what makes this a retail-level release. It completely decimates the original Silent Threat, and could easily be recognized as canon; it's that good. Excellent job; Goober and the rest of the team all deserve a pat on the back for all the hard work they put into this.

And it's free! Anywhere else, you could expect to pay a pretty penny for this kind of expansion/downloadable content, and that makes us all the more fortunate.

That being said, there are some hiccups; I ran into a few interesting problems while playing through, perhaps because I was playing on Very Easy. I'll provide a rundown of them later after I give things a closer look; it's very late right now and I'm afraid I wouldn't be very precise.

One thing before I go though:

Spoiler:
Is it possible to rescue all the escape pods from the Krios, and if so, do you get anything special out of it? A wing of Hercs jumps in almost on top of them, and I wasn't able to save them all.
We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.

Probably not, and no.  I've never been able to save more than two on Medium.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
I believe I found a problem with the mission where

Spoiler:
the Krios is destroyed and the one before
- you are able
to proceed from one to another with your engines subsystem disabled. Normally you would be quickly destroyed
at the end of "The last Hurrah", but if you set difficulty to very easy and divert all energy to the shields, you
can actually sit there and wait quite a bit, and see what's going on around you. The support ship also couldn't
come, showing a waiting time of 99:99. After trying around a bit I just hit alt+j, and orders for the next mission
were downloaded. There, I was again sitting with no engines, and this time couldn't call any support.

By the way, for the windows launcher to use the mod line with mediavps recommended in this thread, you can
change the fsport-str/mod.ini to:

Code: [Select]
[multimod]
primarylist = fsport-mediavps;
secondarylist = fsport,mediavps;

and then select fsport-str from the launcher This will use fsport-mediavps first, then fsport-str, and last fsport
and mediavps. EXCEPT that the windows launcher has problems with mod names containing a dash, so remove
all of them from the mod.ini entries and folder names.

Indeed. I reported that on the previous page. Vasudan Admiral posted a tweaked mission file a couple of posts down that

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
I just noticed this.

When I used the commandline Goober posted in the first post I get FreeSpace 2 briefing icons (Mentu, Serapis, etc.) instead of the FSPort ones. Is this supposed to happen?

I've been a bad boy and just extracted the icons to my data directory, but I feel this is an idiotic thing to do and I'd like a more suitable solution. :(

Well, in the ST:R mod folder is a file called mod.ini. Open it up and look at the bottom row, the one with SecondaryList. Make sure all the names in that row have the same names as the folders in your Freespace directory (meaning "fsport" is named "fsport" and not "freespaceport" or something.)

This is my STR mod ini:

[launcher]
modname      = Silent Threat: Reborn v1.0;

infotext     = As the Great War rages on, you've been commissioned by Galactic Terran Intelligence for special intelligence operations.  Your objectives are to contain the Shivan onslaught and preserve the fragile Terran-Vasudan alliance.  But a series of suspicious events cloud the GTI's spotless record.  Is the GTI setting you up or are the Shivans spreading their evil rage?;
