Well, for some funky reason, the music actually played in the last mission. I mean, I was almost done with it awhile ago, but I had to quit, so I just went back to finish the last mission today and...well...

Hot damn.

Spoiler:
Who would have thought that pressing the rewind button would be so satisfying. That was beautiful work, that ending movie there.

Spoiler:
I found the ending movie dimly ironic...I was originally inspired to implement the time-compression SEXP after watching Slipstream, which has an ending sequence almost exactly like the one in Transcendance. I dunno if that was an inspiration - probably not, it was a Sci-Fi cheapie movie - but it's still a little interesting to me, that things went full circle like that.

I actually sort of liked the campaign without the ending movie, though - I watched it after the whole thing, since AVI movies don't play under Linux, so it immediately jumped to the first mission clone. I suspected what had happened, but there was still that moment of uncertaintly...will it start all over again? Then the Orion appears.

IMHO that was an unintentionally brilliantly subtle ending because, it's like, has the player gotten stuck in the same situation as tehy thought the Transcendant was, and reliving his last memories? Or was he actually sent back in time? I can just see the virtual audience breathing a sigh of relief. ;)

Spoiler:
There's a new tune in the last mission. Nowhere else though so unless you've got to that one you haven't missed anything new. The music in the last mission is triggered using a SEXP which is why it plays when everything else didn't


The mv_music.vp problem though casn be solved by moving mv_music and warble to the freespace2\Data folder apparently.

Hum, i've just see yesterday, that stupid mv_music.vp crashed Fs2 and all the mods i have. Whatever build i use, Fs 2 crashed except the 18032005 build. Don't know why.

And, after reinstalling Fs2 and the Fs2 SCP, i found where the problem comes. Unfortunately, I prefer listening my own mv_music, because it give to Fs 2 more intense combat with a good military music from Japanese games (Metal Gear Solid 3, Front Mission, Ace Combat).

I should issue a recall on mv_music, until an official build is out that actually plays OGGs. :p

I've got pretty much exactly that problem. Check your errorlog.txt file and see if you've got this line.

Both of those I plan to explain in later campaigns.

Are you running it with the -mod commandline? If not the stars.tbl in the root_FS2.vp is overwriting Transcend's one.

Those look like Lightspeeds' nebulas, so I think he's running without -mod.

Guh! why wouldn't i use the -mod command line?

eh, i probably overwrote Ransom's table with lightspeed's (since Transcend uses lightspeed's nebula. :p)

Aaarg, your campaign is excellent. I've no word to say it's perfect work.
The strange voice scared me ^^ I hate hearing this kind of voice.

I've just finished the campaign, and i want more. :D

Spoiler:
I don't know why Omicron 2 and 3 turn back to kick my ass in the last mission. Which sort of power has this Transcendant ?? O_o

How did he disappear and reappearing in front of you ??
Damn stupid questions, i 'm too curious now :D

Do me a favour. Try moving mv_textures.vp files out of your FS2 folder and try running the same mission. Bet you it works now.

That's not a solution to your problem of course. The best thing you can do is to simply delete mv_music but do me a favour and try that one first.

Unless it was just Kappa One's memory, of how things would have been if he hadn't been initiated into Omicron.

Perhaps the Alternate Universe in Sync, with the Xenophobic Vasudans, was The Transcendental's imagination, where the T-V war had continued, and the Vasudans had won. "It is the Death of your species whcih guides you".

Now I know what Alpha 3 was talking about when he said he could fell something watching him.

Spoiler:
I think they didn't arrive because their arrival (and presumably the original Omicron 4's death) were probably consequences of the Transendant's rise in power. At one point Omi 3 points out that she never found out how Omi 4 died... chances are he was absorbed into the Transendant without their knowing. If that's so, then Omi 4 never died in the new timeline and therefore they never had to go fetch Kappa 1.
