Re: Release: 3.6.12 Final
I ran into another bug, not sure if it's related to SCP or not (although I've never encountered it in previous playthroughs, SCP and Vanilla versions). I was playing the last mission and was racing to the node, almost made it, and I was hitting alt+J. Since I wasn't close enough it kept aborting. The weird thing though was what happened:

-no onscreen countdown timer
-I heard the "Whoosh" and a brief (1 second) screen of my figher getting vaporized
-following that brief cinematic moment it put me back in the game, still alive, near the node
-I was then allowed to jump out, but recieved no final cinematic (either version despite having the files in the proper folder [.../freespace 2/data/movies]).

Re: Release: 3.6.12 Final

It's possible the supornova (countdown display) is not working right on .12 or that you have an associated HUD element off in your HUD config.

There are occasional "Red-Alert" mission bugs that randomly seem to creep in that can produce this effect. While we're aware of it, we still (afaik) don't have a fixed understanding of what causes it in order to better address it. (Outside of potentially the New Pilot code that will be coming up and is currently in Testing)

Just a question: Does FS2 Open still work with OS X Tiger?

I don't know that we're supporting it still, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work anymore.  But I don't think we have the resources to ensure it anymore, as I don't know any devs still running Tiger.  If we broke it, and someone can tell us what broke it, we could try to fix it, but if it ends up being some big new feature that broke it, and there'd be headache trying to fix it, we may have to cut it off.  But I don't know why at least the fixed render pipeline shouldn't work still.  May need to compile it yourself though, the builds I make on Snow Leopard these days might not work on Tiger anymore.

Thanks for info. I will test it on Tiger soon. If it doesn't work I will just upgrade to Leopard or Snow Leopard. $30 isn't much after all.

I can't imagine FS2 is the only reason you'd want to upgrade either, if you have the hardware for Snow Leopard (Intel Mac?) it's so much nicer than Tiger.

Well, FS2 isn't the only reason I want to upgrade. Snow Leopard is better for many other reasons.

My hardware is late 2006 Core 2 Duo based iMac.

I downloaded the 3.6.12 Inferno yesterday and it is pretty awesome! But I have one question, my FS2 folder in my Computer does not have folder that is labled 'movies'.
A small voice in my head tells me they are have followed us here in the Milky Way. They follow us until we are dead at their feet. We are nomands of the stars, no longer the race that was loved by the Great Elders. My name is Kyral and this is my story of survival.

There is no sanctuary for us, in this Universe. We will fight the Terror for one last time on this Shining World. May the Transcendent judge us kindly in the Life Stream.

Thank you, I'll keep that in mind

As I work in customer service supplying lots of different popular software products I'm sorta advising against upgrading to Tiger unless you're certain your software will work correctly with it ;) Might have to wait for new versions of software. For FS2, who knows. Just a general statement though, hope it will function correctly.

Hello! It's come to my attention that the download link at http://scp.indiegames.us/bnr_fs2open.php is not working. Also the primary links for all the 3.6.12 builds on the first page.
Is there any plan on repairing those, or just waiting for .14 final?

Yeah everything on fs2downloads.com is down again.  Should be up in a day or two though.

Loved FreeSpace 2 and registered just to say:

WHERE'S THE BLOODY DOWNLOAD LINK !
y u no up !
Really, this has been going on for some weeks now, I discovered this project already some time ago, but it looks really good.
Don't let it die because your filehosting can't be fixed, either host it somewhere else or fix it.
With a big community you should be able to find people who would offer support.
Else host downloads on gamefront or sourceforge or an alternative opensource project manager, they'll give you plenty of space, SVN and other goodies to keep your project alive.
So many are still waiting for their new beginning, their birth by sleep. Even me, and even you,

Ansem: There are also (Mirror) links for the 3.6.12 executables AND the 5.5g launcher. They're not that hard to spot, try using one of those.

We are working on expanding the avenues available for download locations. We appreciate your enthusiasm and apologize for the inconvenience. RC3 will be coming out soonish (hopefully by this weekend) and it will offer multiple dedicated download locations.

The current hosting location has served the SCP for Release Purposes ever since chief1983 opened the doors to it. Unfortunately, it's a domain that isn't controlled by any of the members here. This hasn't been a problem, until now and even then, while being inconvenient, is merely that, a momentary inconvenience.

We appreciate the support and the feedback, but the tone of your message -could- be read as trying to tell us how to do something that we are already in the process of doing, something we are already familiar with doing, and for many of us, is something we've been doing for (nearly) a decade. Since it's your first post, however, I'll just ask for your patience in the matter while we get everything sorted out if you please.

Hi!

In mv_core-wep.tbm file, I see new type: "ROF". What this is mean exactly?

Thanks.

Re: Release: 3.6.12 Final
The "ROF" entry (which, I should note, is NOT a table option, but rather an extension of the weapon description) tells you the Rate Of Fire of the weapon. "ROF: 5/s" means the weapon fires 5 shots per second.
