Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
To actually attempt to answer your question, Zombimode, you should be able to get the Port to read the German audio data, but it'd require quite a bit of fooling around with file extraction and/or mission editing.  Someone on the Port team would be able to tell you the best way to go about it, and I'm sure one of them will post here eventually to give you a hand.

 
Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Thank you for the answer, Mongoose :)

Thats what I had feared. Well then, I will play it in the english original then. Extensively moddifying files is way to much effort for such a minor question of preference.

Doesn't matter. Stickied threads can't be necroed, as they are always considered "alive". Them's the rules.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
So, it is in any way possible to play the FS1 campaign in FS-Port but with german voice acting, briefings and videos?

You should be able to.  As long as you still have the original German voice files (from your localized version of FS1) all the sound files should play with the Port.

The missions all still use the same *.wav files as the original, so there's no reason it shouldn't.

Cutscenes should work the same way, if they use the same names.  If not, just let someone know what the names of the cutscenes are, and it's just a matter of editing the *.fc2 file to change the names.

Hope that helps. :)

Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Yeah, on second thought, if all the audio/cutscene filenames match up, it won't be all that much hassle to get things working.  Seeing the German text in-mission would require editing the mission files, though.

Or adding localization support to the FSPort.  Which is on our (long) to-do list.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
It shouldn't.  Make sure your mod setup is correct.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
You get FS2 description of the Orion if you select FSport + FSport mediavps. And FS1 description if you select FSport only.

There's this in mv_core-shp.tbm:
Code: [Select]
$Name: GTD Orion
+nocreate
$Species: Terran
+Tech Description: XSTR("For over 30 years, the GTD Orion class was the largest ship in the Terran-Vasudan armada. Over two kilometers in length, bristling with dozens of death-dealing turrets, the Orion is as awesome in repose as it is in battle. All GVTA Orions have been retrofitted with the latest anti-warship beam weapons, as well as flak and AAA turrets for dealing with fighters and bombers. The Orion's cavernous hangar bays easily accommodate more than two dozen fighter or bomber wings.", 3051)
$end_multi_text
That may be why the FS2 description is showing up, since mediavps_3612 is loaded in higher priority than fsport.

I believe the problem is with FSport mediavps since FS2 description remains when 3.6.12 mediavps are excluded from the mod list.

Ugh.

Are there any other ship descriptions in mv_core.tbm?

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Fixed in SVN by adding the FS1 Orion's tech description to the port MVPs. It will override the typo corrected FS2 one in MV_root-shp.tbm.

And nope, no other ship descriptions are in there, so the rest should be fine. (BTW, I couldn't see the typo but eventually found the log entry. The typo was just 'GVTA'. :p )

What's wrong with Galactic Vasudan-Terran Alliance?
It's the same thing as the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance for all intents and purposes, and should be used interchangably...
