Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
So three missions in, and you've already managed to utterly obliterate the original. :D I love how you've completely changed the direction of things right off the bat.  There's a real sense of authenticity and vitality to what's going on, maybe even moreso than the original FS1 and FS2 campaigns.  The voice acting so far is utterly superb; it's a bit of a fun surprise to hear unfamiliar voices uttering the old wingman persona lines.  Tomorrow may be all about family, but I'm going to have at least a small part of my mind completely occupied with wondering just when I'll be able to resume playing. :)

And now, I'm going to bed. :p

<As the files are being downloaded...>

Lt. Ash: Oh God! It's following me. Mayday! This is Lieutenant Ash on FSPort patrol, wing Gamma three-niner reporting. Taken heavy damage. Requesting immediate admin cover and rescue. Come in, anybody! Mayday! Requesting immediate assistance! Anyone please!
Riviera tech: Barely receiving you, Gamma three-niner, this is FSPort outpost Riviera responding. What is your situation?
Lt. Ash: Oh thank God! My wing was ambushed. We didn't have a chance. I'm sure it's tracking me.
Riviera tech: Calm down, sir. Who attacked you? Was it the retail FS1?
Lt. Ash: Retail FS1 was killed, too. It slaughtered everyone.
Riviera tech: Sir, you have to calm down. You were playing the retail FS1, is that true?
Lt. Ash: No! No! We were playing the FSPort and it just came out of nowhere and killed everyone.
Riviera tech: Who came out of nowhere, pilot?
Lt. Ash: I don't know. It wasn't FSPort and it wasn't retail. Oh God. It had those HTL ships.  And the missions were like... their FREDing was too much. It wasted everyone.
Riviera tech: Pilot, sit tight! We're sending debug craft right now.
Lt. Ash: Send admins! I... I know it's following me. Send everything you've have now!
Riviera tech: Sir, I don't have anyone else on scope. You're home free. It's going to be alright.
Lt Ash: No it isn't! You don't understand! You weren't there. I can feel it following me. [Jump points form] Oh my god. I'm dead! We're all dead!
Riviera tech: Picking up unknown jump signature. Scramble the admininstrators.
Lt. Ash: It's too late. Oh God!
Riviera tech: What the hell is that?
Lt. Ash: (As his fighter explodes) SILENT THREAT REBORN !!!

Yay! This event has been awaited. I curse the fact that I'm not at home right now and cannot immediately begin playing this. Still, n + 1 thank yous to the people responsible (with n being the number of people responsible).

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Hi,
i played the first three missions and its really cool, the quality is awesome.
I use the complete "-mod fsport-mediavps,fsport-str,fsport,mediavps" flag with mediavps, fsport vps etc. but it seems i only have the low quality version of the Orion but the fighters have the good look of the 3.6.10. mediavps
Here a screenie:


I use the fs2_open_3_6_10r-20081217_r5008.exe Build
3.6.10. mvps, fsport 3.1
am2+ 3x2,3 GHZ, 8 GB RAM, ATI X19650 Pro

Is only the low quality of the orion in ST:R avaiable, or is something wrong with the flags?

Thanx
Nico

Well, in FSPort all the named Orions except for the Galatea and Bastion are the retail ones. It's something about retail compatibility, and it won't be fixed until FSO 3.6.11. You could probably change it in the tables manually or something, but I have no idea how.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Just finished it all in something like 8 hours of play, and all I can say is WOW, that was sooo worth the wait. :D

There's a moment in the second last mission that was executed so perfectly it's going down as one of my favourite FS moments of all time.

Well done again! :yes:

Well, here's one then. Thanks Galemp. :D

What do you do when something unpleasant lands on your head? You would usually run about like mad and try to shake it off. Assuming that is the course of action you take when something unpleasant lands on your head, what would you do if an unidentified object landed on the ship you're flying and start to raise Hell by pounding your hull open?

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Wow. 11 missions into ST:R and I am soooo lovin' it :) Really, great atmosphere akin to FS1 and excellent mission design - challenging but beatable. And you just feel that every byte of this Voice Acting is well worth downloading. I doubt I have heard anything as superb in a fan-made production. If I didn't know better, I'd swore those were the original voices made by Volition, because of the excellent acting.

Spoiler:
And the mission where you escort the three Faustus ships, the strange transmissions and a freakin' Shivan that you have to shake off your fighter ? Now that's incredible. I'm waiting for the Hades to show up now :)

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Will it be ok if I play ST:R with the old fsport version and just the new mediavps and fsport-mediavps or should I download the new fsport completely? Really looking forward to playing this...

ST:R requires version 3.1 of the Port (3.1.1 is preferred due to some bugfixes).  You won't be able to play it on an earlier version because things will be missing.
