SSLBeams. The port also used to have its own version of the SSL, called the LuciferBeam. It looked quite cool but I like the SSLBeams better. And that's Sesquipedalian.

Also, the LuciferBeams were ridiculously overpowered.  They didn't match the original Shivan Super Lasers at all.  I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find that Sesquipedalian's SSLBeams were a perfect match. :)

They were "Carefully crafted and balanced to reproduce the Shivan Super Laser in true beam format."

The LuciferBeams were exactly the same as the LRed except for the looks, right?

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
I don't know how the LuciferBeams were set up, TBH.  Galemp would know.  I don't care to make a beam table comparison, however. :)

Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
Based on the number of threads on this subject, someone suggested to me to post this.

If you don't see any asteroids in the appropriate FSPort missions (such as mission 2, The Field of Battle, or mission 6, Paving the Way), and you're running FSO version 3.6.9, you need to enable the -jpgtga flag in the Launcher.  Version 3.6.10 will have this flag enabled by default, so this problem should not be a problem after the next SCP release.

I thought that 3.6.10 just converted all of the textures to .dds?

That has nothing to do with the asteroid problem.

Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
It does, actually. Because if there are no jpg/tga textures, there is no reason for -jpgtga.

Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
Hi I am using vista and that doesn't support 2d rendering. I have managed to get the asteriods to show on the main freespace game but cannot on this. I think i have a corrupted launcher. Any idea as to how i can get them working.

PS. there is no jpeg option in the launcher so i can't turn them on.

Thx mat

Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
If it is the launcher go re-download it.

The asteroids are 3D.

Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
Are you sure you are using the launcher.exe and not the Freespace2.exe? If you are, go to the features tab and under graphics you should find the "enable jpgtga" checkbox. Make sure this is checked. If you can'r find it on the launcher, which version of the launcher and which build of SCP are you using?

Post-3.6.9, jpg and tga textures are enabled by default, so if you're running such a version that's why it's not showing up.

Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
Yeah i am using the 3_6_9 and i am running the launcher. The jpeg check box is just not showing up. I had a similar problem with freespace 2 though i fixed that through downloading an older launcher, which was suggested to me. Is this the reason it is not working?

 
Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
manual flags: insert -jpgtga...

Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.

Like I said before you may have an outdated launcher. If this doesn't work get launcher 5.5c.

Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
http://fs2source.warpcore.org/exes/ <- Look for Launcher55c.rar (use WinRAR or www.7-zip.org to extract it to your FS2 directory and overwrite the old one).

 
Re: Invisible asteroids? Look here for the solution.
No really sry here but i still cannot get them. I am no tech specy so, i just downloaded said launcher and extracted it as you said. But again i've got no tick boxes ect that i can tick. The easy setup scroll down list is empty. The list type scroll down box is empty too. I have no idea what/if i can use the custom flag bit to fix it but i've left that blank. Someone mentioned i could get it to do manuel flags: could someone guild me through this plz.

Oh and something else not sure if this is important but when i quit the game i ge an error message saying unable to read flags. Does this have anything to do with it?

Thx,
