Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Will it be available to download via either BitTorrent or at least some Non-Evil place (i.e. NOT FilePlanet or any other Must Register scumbag download place?)

Here's what the readme currently says:
Quote
Updates in 3.0:
--Overhauled the Port to use the FS1 tables, including ships, weapons, sounds, and species.
--Added the revised and enhanced FS1 music table (SCP).
--Added the FS1 personas.
--Added the FS1 ranks (SCP) and medals.
--Reconverted the FS1 missions using the import feature in FRED2 Open.
--Restored the FS1 shockwave behavior (SCP).
--Added the following ships:
----*** *****
----*** ******
----*** ******* *********
----*** ******* *****
----**** ******* (*******)
----**** ******* (*******)

Silent Threat: Reborn.  A complete rewrite of the original Silent Threat.  Same plot, better missions. ;)

Yup.  Straight from HLP, hopefully.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Q: Will current projects being made with Port 2.3 be compatible with 3.0?

(Yes, I know we discussed this via PMs, but I'd thought I'd throw it out there for others :) )
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Q: Will there be a way to override existing campaign ships.tbl and weapon.tbl files with the ones in the new port? I'm playing the Shrouding the Light campaigns right now and have had to do a fair amount of table hacking to get the right ships weapons to get recognized for the right missions so that the game won't crash.

Q: How are you handling the voices on the ST:R campaign? all the original material from Violition or are you redoing that too for the missions?

Ugh. :p Version 3.0 will be rebuilt from the ground up, so older campaigns won't really be compatible with it.  The upside is that you'll be able to convert FSMs to FS2s very quickly with the SCP converter.

You can override tables with the Port just like with any other mod.  If you're having trouble with the STL mods then you may have other stuff hanging around your folder that you're not aware of.  Try reading karajorma's FAQ.

The new messages will be voiced.  I'm not sure if we'll redo the personas.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Q: will the mainhalls be included?
Snips from Hackers Defend Liberty (Definitions for hacker):
But I like rescuing good words from sad bad fates, and so I cling to Eric Raymond's definition:
    "1. A person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users, who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary...
    "7. One who enjoys the intellectual challenge of creatively overcoming or circumventing limitations.

I also like tinkerer, as defined by Freedom to Tinker:
    "Your freedom to understand, discuss, repair, and modify the technological devices you own."

Maybe.  I need to talk to Galemp about that.

I tried to start redoing the mainhall tables myself, but I never quite got around to it.

Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Update: Main halls have been included. :) If you use a SCP build after 3/1/2006 and include warble_fs1, they'll also play the FS1 music. :)

 
Re: Port and Silent Threat: Reborn FAQ
Hello, I have a problem. It's a huge problem. I was a childhood fan of Freespace and Freespace 2. I have now been out of the community for over 5 years. Now all of a sudden I come back and there is this MASSIVE WAVE of information and builds and downloads and mods EVERYWHERE, and I do not even know where to start. Basically my question is, from what I have gathered this is a port of the FS1 game to the FS2 engine. I would like to play it. I have FS2 installed on my comp and nothing else. Can I play it? And how do I install it?

Nice.  You've updated "Hellfire" to include friendly cap-ship support, and you've increased the number of ships around Jotenheim.  That looks like a mini-shipyard there.
