Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Oh my God...I'm not even halfway done with this, but oh my God...

Spoiler:
He Who Rides the Tiger was the greatest mission I have ever played, hands-down.  I'm still half-shaking from the adrenaline.  The transmissions were utterly spine-chilling, and then everything starts going to hell in a handbasket...and then ****ing Shivans start flying through space and latching onto my fighter...unbelievable.  Damn things killed me the first time, too. :D Now most people would be content with doing just that, but then you manage to up the ante even more by having a Demon jump right into the fray and start trying to capture the Ratna like crazy.  I was scrambling like hell all over the place, trying to figure out what to do; in the Amazon that docked to it was down to a paltry 4% hull when it managed to clear the fray and jump out.  Utterly, unbelievably incredible.

And I just know that you'll probably manage to top it before the end. :lol:

(I love what you did with Cloak & Dagger, too; that was easily my favorite mission from the original campaign.)

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
If you don't mind my asking, Goober, was using allcaps in this thread's title a reference to this?
Not at first, but I liked the coincidence, so now it is. :)


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?
The port does not currently include FS1 briefing icons, so yes.


I'm going to ask again :
Follow Lobo's instructions.  If those don't work, make sure you don't have any table or model files hanging around in any of your data directories.  And make sure you're using the up-to-date mediavps, not the old 3.6.8 ones.

Thanks, that was the reaction I was hoping for. :D

I KNOW. I was freaking out man, more than I did while playing Transcend and Sync.

A very, very excellent job you guys did here. The voice pack was absolutely worth the wait.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Its an incredible high quality and atmospheric campaign so far. I'm have some issues however. In the mission where the PVD Hope is set up us the bomb the Medusas are supposed to be carrying a new type of warhead. However, it doesn't appear and they use hornets instead. I ignored it and when on... The mission was just abnormally easy. Next problem in in the mission right after the Jothunheims destruction and the first appearance of the Hades. Its says that its missing a ship class. I suppose its the Karnak. my -mod flag is -mod fsport-str,fsport,mediavps,fsport-mediavps.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
I did not have the problem with Bombers firing missiles instead of bombs. I used the mod line that was
recommended in the release post:

Code: [Select]
-mod fsport-mediavps,fsport-str,fsport,mediavps

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
I had that line originally and it suffers from the same problems.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Do you have rogue files in your Freespace2\data\<maps, models, tables> folders perhaps? Stuff there could override anything else.

And if you're not using it, switch back to the command line smurd posted. The way you have it will override any HTL ships that have retail counterparts appearing in the port VP, which would be bad. ;)

No, it is not. The secondarylist entry will add the mods listed there after fsport-str, i.e.

Code: [Select]
-mod fsport-str,fsport-mediavps,fsport,mediavps
The windows launcher (and now also yal) combine the mod list from:

1. primarylist from mod.ini
2. selected mod from the launcher
3. secondarylist from mod.ini

That means for fsport-mediavps,fsport-str,fsport,mediavps you need:

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

This should almost work (it does with yal). The windows launcher seems to have problems with a dash in
mod names, so maybe you need to remove them and rename the folders accordingly. This really should be
fixed in the launcher, but I don't know if it is even still actively maintained.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Very well done, I enjoyed the campaign immensely, and the voice acting was superb. He Who Rides the Tiger was excellent.
However...
Spoiler:
The final kill the Hades mission was kind of meh; it was much easier than many of the other missions, and it ended up being the same sort of "punch the quadriplegic" mission as it was in Silent Threat original. Still, it played relatively well, and most of the other missions were superb; so overall I'd give the campaign an 8 or 9 out of 10 :)

finished! AWESOME CAMPAIGN! Felt exactly like original FS in terms of style.

Some missions were really outstanding.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
A few errors I just recalled.
- Sneak 1 in 'Blood of Innocents' was busy crashing into the walls of the tunnel rather than going for the reactor. Probably just AI phail.
- In 'Lost Hope', upon mission start, it said I scanned the Hades' engines already (but only happened once, could not reproduce the error)
- The GTD Legion hulk in 'Last Stand' still has its engine glows on. Looks kinda strange to have a holed Orion still have its engines online.

It sounds like you're trying to run ST:R on version 3.0.4 of the Port.  As mentioned in the first post, 3.1 is required.

Err, that should not be possible - the legion pof has no thruster glows defined, and so cannot at all show engine glows even if it wanted to.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED

Unless it was fixed between the '162' version and the current one.
