Release: 3.7.2 RC2
Time for RC2! The Debug Console should be working in the release builds now.  Some multiplayer bugs were also fixed, related to stats storage, and some coverity stability fixes were committed.

Important!!
As always, you need OpenAL installed.  Linux and OS X come with it but Windows users will need to get Creative's OpenAL installer.

Important!!
Also, since the internal code linking for TrackIR was revised, an external DLL is now required for FSO to use TrackIR functions.
The following DLL is simply unpacked in to you main FreeSpace2 root dir.
TrackIR is only supported on Windows.
TrackIR SCP DLL (Mirror) (Mirror) (Mirror)

Launchers, if you don't have one already:
All platforms:  wxLauncher (ongoing project for a unified launcher)
-or-
Windows:  Launcher 5.5g (Mirror) (Mirror) (Mirror) Not compatible with Windows 8, use wxLauncher above
OS X:  Soulstorm's OS X Launcher 3.0
Linux:  YAL or by hand or whatever you can figure out.

Known issues:
  • See the list of Fix for next release bugs - mark a bug as an elevated priority (high, urgent, immediate) to get it included in that filter.
  • Here is the filter for Target 3.7.2 bugs.

Compiled on MSVC 2008 SP1

If you don't know which one to get, get the third one (no SSE).  If you don't know what SSE means, read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streaming_SIMD_Extensions
You can use freely available tools like CPU-Z to check which SSE capabilities your CPU has.

This one is based on the SSE2 Optimizations from the MSVC Compiler.

What are those SSE and SSE2 builds I keep seeing everywhere?

Yeah I just didn't get around to updating that part of the post in the release script, was kinda rushed trying to get RC2 out before I went to the gym today.  I'll try to make some other enhancements to the post for the next release.  Need to figure out how to phrase the OpenAL stuff without being more confusing to people though.  Right now, the official OpenAL installer is usually enough to work for everyone.

At least on my setup, wxlauncher doesn't work with OpenAL soft. Not sure how widespread this problem is, though.

Which nightly is this based on?
Normal people believe that if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
The difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers is:
Mechanical Engineers build weapons.  Civil Engineers build targets
An optimist sees the glass half full; the pessimist sees it half empty. An engineer sees that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Axem and I are experiencing crashes on BP2's 'Icarus'. Maybe even at the same point - Axem, I get mine when the camera is first approaching the Atreus.

I just tried it and got the same crash. Trying again with a debug build, the game goes a few more seconds and then hits this assert:
Code: [Select]
ASSERTION: "ship_obj->type == OBJ_SHIP" at modelread.cpp:4116

Debug log attached even though it doesn't really contain anything else of interest.

Saw that one too. I have a fix for it, I just want to investigate the cause some more.

Okay. Any options for him?

 
Hello Hlp,

today after a long Time i installed MVPS 2014 + 3.7.2 RC2
Great work and nice textures and effects (Shadows and many more)

But i have a little Problem: in 1080p Resolution the Chatter Text is very very small and very hard to read.
Is there a possibility to make the Font so big as the Font in The Briefings ??

Greetings Peter

You can increase the size of the gauges (at the cost of making them a bit fuzzy due to scaling) by putting the attached table into this directory:
MediaVPs_2014/data/tables (create the directories if they don't already exist)

Code: (mv_root-hdg.tbm) [Select]
$Max Directives: 8
$Max Escort Ships: 13
$Scale Gauges: yes

This will overwrite the table with the same name provided by the MediaVPs_2014, which is identical except that $Scale Gauges: is set to "no"

I noticed 'Enable Framebuffer shockwaves' is still listed under experimental in the launcher. Shouldnt this be moved to graphics?

Also, I noticed the 'more' in briefing text still doesn't disappear when you scroll all the way down. Will this ever work properly?  :p
