Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
You could also check out JAD 2.21 or JAD:XA.  Both feature missions where the player craft switches between a) different fighters or b) different modes of a single fighter (which are essentially the same thing as far as I'm aware)

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
I never realized the Star Fox universe had so many characters. Are they all based from canonical sources or are some straight fan made?

Keep it up, this looks fantastic!

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
I thought Star Fox 2 was unfinished? Or was it just never released in the US?

And IIRC Star Wolf wasn't in the original Star Fox?

Not familiar with "Matt Monroe" or "Harrion", and SF64 is the one I'm most familiar with.

Star Fox 2 was finished, complete with cartridges. Nintendo decided not to put it on shelves though since the N64 and Star Fox 64 were less than a year away. There are roms of Star Fox 2 floating around and it can be played on an emulator. The actual cartridges are pretty rare and sell for absurd prices.

You are right, Star Wolf was not in the original Star Fox.

I made a spelling mistake, it's Katt Monroe.

"Harrion", and SF64 is the one I'm most familiar with.
Harrion was the boss of the Sector Y level, he pilots the Shogun Warlord:

Just to clarify, Star Fox 2 is technically a canceled game with no official release in any country.

Canon in Star Fox universe is different than the other Nintendo series of one continuity (e.g. Metroid, LoZ [an even more confusing beast]) and no continuity (e.g. Mario). The second released game, Star Fox 64, is actually a Star Fox 1 reboot with elements from Star Fox 2. So technically, Star Fox 1 is no longer canon, either.

Two more characters join the game:

Nice to see that you got the cloak to work. I noticed it's treated as a primary weapon. Does it activate immediately when switching weapon banks, or do you need to switch banks then hit the fire button?
If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong

You have to hold down the fire button. It works for the most part, except for the fade out effect, which only works if you press fire once.

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Is anyone familiar with the "2D Mission" setting in Fred2? I'm extremely close to having completely functional tank levels, but there seems to be one problem. Every AI controlled unit that moves does a strange nosedive or faces vertically up when they move:
Spoiler:

There seems to be no way to stop this, the moment any AI unit moves they do this. Messing with movement settings and speeds in ships.tbl seems to have no effect. Why is there even a "2D Missions" option if AI ships can't even move properly in that setting? Or did I somehow forget to tick something else?  :lol:

It's not commonly used as it's not perfected mate.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
The only time I've seen a 2D mission with working AI was short 1 mission side scroller campaign called SHMUPSpace.
If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
And I'm pretty sure SHMUPSpace uses a custom script, not the 2D mission flag.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
I guess there won't be any tank combat. More characters though:

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Do .avi files work for Command Briefing videos? FRED seems to have the option to load .avi videos, but I've tried and nothing shows up during the command briefing. My .avi is 440 x 200 like the .ani files and in the cbanim folder. Perhaps I'm doing something else wrong? Every thread I find on here about the issue pretty much say "nope no .avi's", yet why is the option in FRED if that's the case? I'd really like nice .avi animated talking portraits during the command briefing.... not the horrible low res .anis that I can't even get to convert properly.
