Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1
There is a problem I have encountered with this game, I don't know if anyone else has. Sometimes the music doesn't play. This happens frequently. I'm not sure if there's a pattern, but I'd say it's 50/50, maybe even more often that I don't get music.

 
Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1
I've never had music not play, but oftentimes it doesn't loop, which is a bit annoying.

I mention it here because that might possibly be related? I don't know.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1
can't seem to get the campaign to load at all.  there are no errors at all when launching the game initially but it just straight up crashes right after the first mission finishes loading before the briefing even shows up (FSO has stopped working).  ive tried windowed mode which causes the same thing.

is there a debug exe that i can use to generate a log file?
thanks

I believe that would happen in old WoD too. And yes, I've encountered that in this one, but that's not what I'm talking about. For me, just no music. It even happens in the main hall.

Norton Antivirus likes to get false positives on the exe files for some reason.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1
Congratulations for the release!!!  :pimp:  ;)

A couple of quick questions first:

1) What does the parameter -brief_lighting do? I couldn't find any information about it in the HLP wiki.

2) Why are there two -fov parameters in the default launch command line? The first one seems to set a value of 0.72 and the second a value of 0.75.

(Additionally I would argue that setting a custom value that barely differs from the default value is pointless, since FSO actually does automatically notice the aspect ratio of the game resolution and changes the in-game fov accordingly).

I know I can change the launch parameters myself, but I was just wondering if the double fov -command had a particular purpose in the game.

heres what i got in the log
OpenGL Renderer  : Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600
Try under the troubleshoot tab: 'Disable GLSL (shader) support'
This worked for someone who had a graphics chip similar to yours.

This is a very interesting question! The answer is: I... I don't know.
This somehow completely slipped past me, and Freespace apparantly doesn't seem to care enough about it to throw an error about it.
Completely unintentional  :p

RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1 patch
Okay so I hope I got all the mentioned bugs.
http://www.mediafire.com/download/s0gre2yeo5r3hqw/WoD-Core.vp
Simply drag and drop this into the Wings of Dawn folder and overwrite the WoD-Core.vp
If you just downloaded this game you don't need this, as this is included with the whole download from here on.

Changelog:
  • Added a redundancy check in mission 4 to make sure Ophelia doesn't cheat.
  • Made sure you cannot break the tutorial by killing the launchers.
  • Due to a misnamed variable, the wrong dialogue would play if you decided to ignore the distress signal. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed the wrong weapon being mentioned in Mission 2's briefing.
  • Disabled engine hum during the VN segments.
Urutorahappī!!

Many thanks for the fix. Just ran the fourth mission and didn't have any problems show up.

Plug your laptop in, a lot of laptops won't active the GPU unless plugged in.

There may also be switches in the control center program that you may have to make to force the driver to switch to the real GPU.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1
Well that log file definitely helps trying to figure out why my graphics code doesn't run on Intel chipsets. Lookit all dat compiler errors I need to fix. And why does Intel claim to support array textures when their shader compiler says it doesn't? :(

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1
I've grabbed the patch. I don't suppose it fixes my music bug though? I don't know if you want to fix it? It seems I'm currently the only one with the problem. I can certainly get by without it being fixed, though it is a shame as I love the WoD soundtrack so much. At least I do still get to hear it when it wants to play it.

A much more little thing you might want to know about. So it's supposed to look like this in the cutscene?



This is what it looks like for me:

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn Episode 1
Those screenshots were done with the PBR build, which you're not actually supposed to use. Unless they compiled their own.

The one I downloaded flagged 486 errors and had the majority of secondary weapons removed, though I only used it to look at ships in the Ship Lab.
