That's a neat issue that's I've never seen before. Something with one of my sexps is failing wonderfully. It doesn't look like it would happen all the time so you should be able to continue to play. I will still look into the problem for future releases. Thanks!

Wow. What an ending.

so, "shipsave" breaks the game.

dup.pof is missing, apparently.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

So it is... good thing no missions actually use the save script yet...  :nervous:

 
Re: RELEASE - Just Another Day 2.21: You Are (Not) Alpha 1
Sorry if this is old news, but the mod is refusing to recognize my 1280x1024 monitor, displaying the Y U No guy asking why I don't have at least 1024x768. When I drop it down to that it the launcher, the screen flickers as soon as it gets past the loading screen. Is there an official fix for this? I've gotten it working once before but the same tricks aren't doing it this time.

Nope, never heard of this problem before. And what a silly problem this is too! 1280x1024 is a screen res that I hadn't quite taken into account, so the game defaults to looking at the 640x480 files.

Can you save the attachment below and place it in your JAD2-2/data/tables/ directory and see if things work?

This has occurred on two separate occasions. And it doesn't always happen.

Weird, I will take a look at fixing that for a future release. I hope it didn't detract too much from the fun!

 
Re: RELEASE - Just Another Day 2.21: You Are (Not) Alpha 1
Nothing can detract from JAD fun!
After all it is like my 4th playthrough :D
As long as you don't fail this doesn't happen and even if you fail it sometimes still doesn't happen.

Keep up the good work Axem, looking forward to JAD 2.2

Re: RELEASE - Just Another Day 2.21: You Are (Not) Alpha 1
Just a heads up to people who want to play JAD2.2 with nightly builds that come after 3.7.2 or deferred/soft shadows or PBR builds:

JAD will not work with them!

Yet.

Basically I really really wanted the Team Colors feature to work with glow maps and to do that I needed someone to make me some custom shaders to do that. Well now that all the shaders have been upgraded, the ones I have won't work right anymore... Swifty has it on his to-do list to permanently add that feature in so I won't be high and dry in the future, but in the mean time the only recommended build right now is 3.7.2 Final.

It'll work now if you update JAD in the installer now and use 3.7.4 RC1 or beyond!

RELEASE: Just Another Day 2.22 Preview
I am proud to announce that this JAD party is just getting started now!  :cool:

I'd have a more elobrate release post here, but I used all my energy on the new encyclopedic JAD omni-release post.

So just go run the installer and find JAD2.22 Preview and install it!

Do it now!

(A special build is required, but the windows exe is included with the download. People with other O/Ss can check out the main release post for a github branch link.

Then post comments and praise.

And kittens.

I won't get a chance to play this until next week, but I am looking forward to it. Glad to see this isn't dead.

Re: Just Another Day: Just Another Discussion Thread
This release is extremely suspicious, considering what date it is. Then again, that might actually be exactly what you want us to think!
