Shortly after the Sathanas is destroyed, the GTVA begins an operation to take down a Ravana-class destroyer, the SD Vassago and its fleet. Meanwhile the Vassago begins an operation of its own. But for what purpose? Installation Instructions
Extract the folder to your base FreeSpace2 directory. Peek inside to ensure it looks something like
You should see the VPs and mod.ini in there.
Open up your FreeSpace open launcher, ensure your selected build is a recent nightly. Select Vassago's Dirge as your mod.
Play and enjoy!Notes
This campaign makes heavy use of not-very-loud music. I advise that before starting the campaign, you turn the Music volume to max and Effects to about half or 2/3s. Using builds with 3D sound may make it even harder to hear the music. I'm sorry, there's not much I can do without butchering the music.
It has been my (and some of my Beta Testers) experience that turning on the "Disable Vertical Sync" command flag will cause problems with camera fade in and possibly some of the synchronized music events. Please have that command flag turned off.
If your game appears to have frozen after a fade to white, it hasn't (at least I really really hope not). Just wait for the next level to load. Known Issues

If you want to upgrade your pre-2014 Vassago's Dirge installation, please redownload the full mod above. It contains more files than usual for a small patch. Please delete your old Vassago's Dirge directory first so no loose files get in an mess things up.
Added Custom Hud Gauges for signal detection (M3), radar lock notification (M7), and Mjolnir status (M7)
Akheton now works on the moorings in M3
Dream-type missions are now slightly desaturated
Changed special explosion stuff in M5 to not crash with 3.6.12.
Made Reprise (M5) easier (Maras do not have Tempests anymore (wtf was I thinking))
Some little text editing + cbani file references added
Maybe fixed the Melchom beaming things it shouldn't in M3
Updated mod.ini for 3.6.12 MVPs
TTS should work for the campaign now, but there may be problems turning it on with the WxLauncher.
Made M3 a bit easier by moving the moorings to a front/back configuration instead of a left/right. Should be easier to know what to target now.
Fixes broken True End requirements that was broken in Patch 2. Nice job breaking it, Axem.
Fixes M8 not going onto the next mission after the... event.
Fixes issues with the Arcadia being invisible in some missions.FS Wiki PagePreview Thread with Screenshots
