Unfortunately the nightly builds (i.e. the only ones current compatible with mediavps 2014) don't have text to speech enabled. My only other suggestion to help out is to use "F4" often to pause and read the dialogue in the mission logs (I know it's still not as good as voice-acting, or TTS if that's your cup of tea).

Hey. I was just griping, I'm actually fine with it to tell the truth. Although I only now just realized during the Intermezzo section with the Shivan dream-sequence and a few minutes ago, the final mission using the EVA battle armor that I had no HUD. Most likely the result of including the cockpit mod 1.2 VP, but still I think that's something to note.
A story like the previous one never existed...

No worries then :D

And you are right, the cockpit mod is probably interfering with the EVA mission.

Wow..............  My mind is blown.

Amazing campaign, great job Axem.  Loved the music and the story was very complicated and good.  I had to play the last mission a few times just to try to understand what just happened.   I also was able to get the true ending which was cool and scary at the same time.  Overall one of the best campaigns I've ever played.

Thanks for creating this!!

Is there some other way to get the updated Vassago's Dirge with fsmods.net being down? Would someone be so kind as to put it on their dropbox and share the link with me?

Sorry 'bout that. I uploaded the files to Mediafire and forgot to update the post!

I donĀ“t get what I have to do in Mission 3. After destroying the moorings  a cruiser beam ends the mission. I have no idea what I have done wrong.

IIRC correctly, if you destroy the moorings in time the formerly trapped ship starts to move and the beam will miss. But I haven't played the most recently released version yet to confirm that.  Maybe just give it another go and see if you can destroy the moorings a bit sooner?

Compatibility note: please change 'secondarylist = mediavps_2014;' in the mod.ini to 'secondarylist = MediaVPs_2014;'. Mac and Linux versions of FSO are case-sensitive, and the latter capitalisation is how the MVPs are distributed.
